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 17 - 23

I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.  We are back to share with you some more of our December Daily pages.

Day 17.
Consists of 2 pages......the first being the reverse of the page where I have hung a wood veneer bauble from the top of the cut out.  This page includes the title and an arrow pointing to the 2nd page of photos.

Using a smaller page from the album as a flap, I've attached it in when I added the binding to the main page.    A bird die cut (which has it's edges inked in black) is glued to the flap....

but before I attached it, I had traced around it onto some scrap paper (in reverse) to attach  another bird to the inside of the flap.  Added some cotton to it's beak and then to the journalling circle.

Days 18 & 19.  
are both included on the one page.

Day 18 is a smaller page from the album, turned up at the bottom and stitched  to form a pocket for a journalling card made from black cardstock and then has a die cut attached to the bottom to separate it from day 19.  It was then glued to the top section of the base page and a small piece of patterned paper  glued to the bottom of the base page to hold some typed journalling for the 19th.

Day 20.

A piece of paper glued in behind the tag shaped cut out on the page and outlined in black.   White gesso on the page and sprayed with blue and green mists and stamped with stars for a background for the cut out photo.

Also to the back of the page I have attached  a packet to fill in the "curve" space on the edge of the page and also serve as a pocket for a journalling tag. 

and because I had the paper glued to the back to fill in the cut out and also the packet glued to the back,  I traced the outline of the page onto some black cardstock to cover the back of the page for the next day.

Day 21.
Added a  scrap of glitter paper to the edge of the black cardstock and  used the back of the same tag used for Day 20's journalling........

to journal about today's events........

Day 22.
is just a simply decorated  6 x 4 journalling card with a reminder of what I had to do for the day.

This is what it looked like when I drew up the card in the morning..........and then finished it off at day's end with some extra colour (water colour) and ticked off what I had done and time. 

Day 23.
is a 4 x 6 photo with text added before printing and glued to the back of Day 22's journalling card.
