December Memories- Album Cover Makeover

Earlier this week I shared my base pages for my December Memories album. Today I'm sharing my album cover. One of my favorite things about the Gossamer Blue December Memories kit this year is the mini album it comes with. This handbook is HUGE, it must be 2"- 3" thick. So much room for fun inserts, embellishments, holiday cards that friends and family send and of course, photos from this month.

I was so excited when I saw the album, but I also knew I couldn't keep it with it's standard design. I'm all about personalizing my projects. See the before and after;

I added a few coats of white acrylic paint and kept the spine it's original color. The gorgeous gold glitter reindeer to the cover was from the Dollar Tree. It's so festive and definitely my favorite part. I've known since I bought it last year (it's an ornament meant for the tree) that I would use it on whatever December Daily type mini album I was going to do this year. I'm completely obsessed.
