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'!

Deb's Days 11, 12, 13 & 14

Day 11.
A pocket to hold a copy of a grocery docket and this year I also added the grocery list that I wrote before going shopping.  Thought it might be a bit of a laugh for someone in years to come to see how many more groceries ended up in the trolley than what was on the list.  I've been including a grocery docket in my December Daily for quite a few years now.  After the tag was finished on this side I've  stitched across the hessian ribbon only,  to keep it in line with the day before, and glued it down along with a green twine bow.  The button on the pocket is one of the circles from the black & kraft spot paper you can see on the background.  Left the wooden "day" numbers natural on this day as they were going on the black.

This is how the back of the tag from day 10 looked and realising my desk needed a bit of a clean up, I gathered up the scrap paper and cut it up into random "squares" to use on the background.

Glued them down just as randomly and set about drawing in between them with a black neo colour then going over it with a water brush.

 and it ended up looking like this before putting on the pocket.....................

Day 12.
A snowman cut from the same fabric used on the front cover, stitched to some card and glued onto a 6 x 4 journalling card.  (The tag showing at the back came later on Day 13 but I had forgotten to photograph before hand).

So opened up, my December Daily is looking like this............getting quite full now.

Day 13.

Glued this tag across the back of my 6x4 journalling card from day 12....

and then tore a smaller journalling card to cover the top and bottom of the ruled card and repunched 
the ring binder holes......

Day 14.
Tearing up a previously misted paper doily and glueing randomly to the edges of the page and adding a collage photo and some alphas.  A scrap of paper used as a small tag for the date.

We are so looking forward to seeing how your December Dailys are progressing.

  1. OH MY GOSH!! You have reminded me of all the things my DD is missing!!! I miss the lists like I did for my 30days of lists last year! How have I not included this???!! Okay.. thats going in my 'overview after all said and done!' AND I havent done a Christmas garden one yet!! Probably because my poor bottle-brush bushes are not flowering! What could be wrong there? Hmmmn.... Okay - so you've put me on a right-track to make some amends! I love your scrap tag- all those little squares- soooo impressive! Love your daily list - oooh just love your garden.. love everything! Thanks for the great ideas!

  2. Oh that tag pocket and little collage on the back is so gorgeous. Glad I'm not the only who has 'nothing' days! And the garden - well maybe I should snap some pics of mine too, it'll be a huge contrast to your beautiful blooms.

  3. Such fun pages :) I love the random nothings list will have to remember that one :) Beautiful flowers in the garden Oh I so wish for spring


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