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'!

Bec's Days 17, 18, 19 & 20.....................

Day 17...............
Photos backed onto black card again. Tiny alphas to label the subjects in the photos and some words and Christmas quotes cut from the papers I have. 

 Day 18.............
I documented the food I bought for our Christmas Day.

I made a little pocket to store the receipt for it. Will be interesting to see in years to come the price difference from todays shop.

I also documented the activities and tasks for the lead up to our Christmas. Making gingerbread houses and preparing strawberries. 

 Day 19.............
This is our Christmas Day. A week early due to my brother going overseas for Christmas. 

 I had so many photos from our Christmas, as you do, and I like to put in most of them, whether they are good or bad photos.
So I used a piece of Kraft A4 card and trimmed it just slightly.

I added a strip of washi tape down the left edge of it and lined it up on the page. I then folded the washi tape over and joined this page to the page in the book, so it folds over.

I opened it up and ran another strip of washi tape down the join to strength as it will be opened and closed.

This is the previous page where I joined it to. 

And this is the cover of the folded page.
Very simple with some stamping and a doily because inside is sooooooo busy.

This is the folded page opened and the two page spread. Very simple stamping again for the background. And some tiny alphas to describe what is happening. 

I also documented what was happening in the local area at the time.

 This is the other side of the folded pages which I kept as the final page for this day by using the group photo as the final photo. 

Inside the right hand side folded page. Using polaroid photos from my Instax camera was great as there is a white blank space at the bottom to write on. That is where I documented who was in the photos. 

Day 20....................
Love the photo corners. Still using my large black numbers I just mounted the photos in photo corners. I journalled using my handwriting straight on to the page and used some Thickers for the subject of the day. There is a little stamping using Christmas words and words that describe the day. 

I hope your December Daily's are well on their way!
