WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages.

Deb's 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th..........

DEC 5.......  Yep, this would be a photo of my ceiling/fan.   I had a dreadful tummy bug (the details of which probably don't need to be shared  lol).   This page is the back of my pocket from the 4th so just to make it look a little different, I coloured in some of the basket weave in a blue, pink and lemon.

DEC 6........... A stroll around the garden to take a photo of some pretty pastels in bloom.  Last year I took some photos of some pretty reds when I went for my walk and I loved that page.  When I put them on the background the photos looked a little bright for the look I was wanting so I went over them in some picket fence Distress Stain to tone them down.

DEC 7 and 8............I ended up putting both these days on the one page, dividing the page by a splash of cream paint on one side.   Last year I did a page including a docket from a  grocery shop and decided I would continue to do this each December Daily.  So the 7th is 2 little pockets, one on top of the other.  The one behind holds a copy of the docket and for the top one, I cut a little tag from some packaging and journalled where we shopped that day.   For the 8th - We visited family that morning and I gave them a little  Kaisercraft bird house that I had made up for them to add to their Christmas house decorating.  Just a simple little flap held with washi tape for the photo and journaling under the flap.

and then on DEC 9............We had relatives who we haven't seen for many years, visit us for a fair part of the day.    That night I realized I had not taken a single photo - not one and nor did I even think to take one.  So I made these little corrugated doors and created like a "visitors" scene type of thing.  

The doors just open up for some journalling.  I didn't want to take the risk of writing it and trying to make it fit totally under the doors, plus I had a fair bit to say so a typed up version fitted it all in perfectly.

How is everyone going with their December Dailys.   I hope you are having as much fun as we are here at Let's December Daily.

  1. this is just fabulous! You've got so many great ideas here! Love the ceiling fan perspective (not love that you were sick!) it tells the story in itself! I LOVE the effect of the wash over your garden plants... it looks pretty - I wouldn't have thought to do that on photos! Totally love dividing a page with colour - it can be so versatile! And lastly, your little doors - they look sooo inviting! What a great idea!!

  2. These are just gorgeous Deb.

  3. Hope you're feeling better now.
    Loving those black and white photos.
    And those colours are just so perfect.
    The doors are a great idea for journalling especially when you don't get photos.
    Love it all!


Any thoughts? We'd love to know them, please share.....
