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.

Jane's Day 1 & 2

Well here I go with my first share of completed pages

Day 1

 Remember this photo of my page preparations?

Well here's how it's progressed. First up I tackled the number card. I chose the Becky Higgin's card with hello at the bottom as it seemed appropriate for a first page. I added a die cut snowflake - Die'sire - behind the gold matted number and decided to leave it at that.

Next I moved on to my journal card. I added some black sparkly tape across the top and a small die cut scalloped square and black punched circle behind a twine threaded button.

I always like to start my album with some good intentions for Christmas - nothing high falutin, just things I want to remember. I used number stickers from a Mambi Happy Planner pack - yes I'm into Mambi planning too! And just finished the card off with a die cut snowflake and gem, both gifts from a Pocket Letter penpal - have I mentioned I do that too?

As it's the first day of December there wasn't really a lot to photograph - I know soon there'll be far too much! So I decided to make the bottom right pocket into a shaker. I popped a couple of die cut stars and the word magic inside along with the obligatory sequins and simple stitched across the top to stop them escaping.

And that's my first page completed - feels so good!

Day 2

For today's number I used a Technique Tuesday Magic Circle die and popped the matted 2 onto the circle part. I've kept the negative part of the paper and that might just be appearing further down the line.

I made the December label on my computer and printed it onto some patterned paper before hand cutting it close to the letters.

To today's journal card, like yesterday, I attached a strip of washi across the top. I then added an arrow die cut from the same paper as the number card pointing to a gem embellished star. The golden heart is a brad I've had in my stash forever.

The journalling took up all the rest of the space, but I did sparkle up the Katie Pertiet border with some Wink of Stella - never shows in photos, but it is there.

Here's how the finished page looks with a photo of Mr Toad and the back of yesterday's shaker.

And that's two pages completed for 2015. How about you? Have you made a start? Even if you just have a photo and a sticky note of what it's all about that's brilliant, the rest can come later.
