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 24 & 25.........

Day 24.
Typed strip journalling was added to the top flap and a banner placed across the top of the base page.

Top page lifts up - added a little gesso to the underside of the flip up piece and made a Christmas tree from some bits that were on my scrap table (I think it looks a little more like a cake than a tree lol) with stickers underneath the tree.  Flap opens up to reveal photo of wrapped presents matted on a piece of the wrapping paper I used this year.  The little owl is also cut from some wrapping as well.

Day 25.

Some stamping over the page with white gesso and added 3 coloured rectangles of paper from a smaller page from the album and  attached them with washi tape to open and close.
Photos were glued to the base page, journalling under the flip up piece and some little pom poms attached to the bottom of the photo to peek out under the flaps.  Some stickers on the top of the flaps finished them off. 

Making room for more Christmas Day photos.......using 2 pages from the album and a 5 x 7 plastic sleeve, I've aligned them so that the flap from the bottom page will still flap over the top of the added pages.   That meant that the photo sleeve and black and white striped page had to sit out from the base page a bit.......

and then after stapling together it had to be trimmed so that I could get the binding onto a straight edge.

Glued on one of my pre made bindings to form a type of a little book.

The front was decorated with 2 squares of canvas paper with glitter added and then the snowflake cut out placed just under the window on the base page.   Santa sticker on the bottom square and washi tape for decoration.

Opened out - Under the top page, I glued in a 4x6 journalling card decorated with some washi tape and a couple of tags.

I made 2 photo collages of our Christmas day photos and printed them onto two 4 x 6 pieces of photo paper which was a little small for the plastic sleeve so using some of the canvas paper I used that as a matt to fill the now slightly smaller 5 x 7 photo sleeve.
