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. Maybe you havent made one before and ask 'I cant think what I'd fill a page with everyday?' We'll help with that! Whatever your style we'd love to see it! Here you will find a seasonal blog open from 1st November to 31st January each year. We hope that this will become a wonderful resource of sharing, prompts and inspiration. What is a December Daily? Its a mini-album recording your daily memories capturing the spirit of December. Bring it out with your decorations each year and remember Christmases past. Scroll down on the right side bar and you will find past December Daily albums of each Designer. Check their 'journey' link too, this will give you some great tips and scroll a little further down and you will see the albums categorised into types for easier searching :) Now - 'Let's December Daily'!

Mandy's Day 25 Part 2 & Part 3


Day 25
Part 2 moves to another couple of double pages, firstly for lunch with my husband's lovely family and then our long drive to Part 3 of the day - dinner with my family....
I found a box of old rubons (rubons are not usually my friend!!) and gave it a go (with the thought that there is GESSO if they didnt work!!!)  But they did and looked a treat! 
The bottom right hand photo doubles as a pocket for more pics with twine tied to them for ease of pulling them out.

Normally I wouldnt take pics of the drive down (right hand side) but it hailed! Yep, hailed!  So used some little white sequins to represent it.

Day 25
Part 3
On the left hand side is a canvas flap, with some photos underneath, and the right hand side is a cut down fancy pants transparency page (need to look closely to see it) attached by red canvas tape.

More festivities under the flap

 Attach the transparency by two pieces of tape, one each side of the transparency

Now that the transparency is fixed, I want to lift up these little baubles a bit and trace them with pencil *exactly* to their shape underneath to use as journaling blocks....

 I kept measuring where to trace by using particular placement of the letters underneath compared to the shape on top... you can see the words 'Christmas Present' is where the bottom of the bauble is for example, and by the end... it worked!

The transparency page now flipped over to the left

Day 25 done!

Keep sharing your December Daily pages with us, they are awesome!

Your work will also become a resource throughout the year too!
Share them HERE.


  1. Love your journal baubles and your explanation of how you got them to line up - such dedication!

  2. Clever clogs with the gesso balls journal backing....if that makes sense! And how DARE it hail on Chrissy day - I mean, that's like saying it SNOWED in Aussie!!! Bizzaro land. It could only happen down south of us [I think I just, finally, after 20 years ID'd myself with NSW instead of VICCY....eek, bit scary!!].....anyways......as always, totally stunning. I did a 2014 mini for Lucas instead of a Christmas one..... & it was a stick & paste job. Not like you lots MARVELLOUS & AMAZING creations:):)

  3. So many wonderful Christmas memories captured here and sooooooo beautifully done. I love the gesso-ed Christmas baubles........very clever.
