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 Days 19, 20, 21 & 22

Day 19

A straightforward following my pattern album page. I added glitter to both the number card and the journal card - glitter seems to be happening more as Christmas gets closer

 Day 20

I added a pocket page to contain all the present receipts. I started with 3 patterned papers and 1 piece of black card all sized to fit my album.

I cut the black card and one piece of patterned paper diagonally and rounded all the corners.

I glued them together to strengthen and stiffen the patterned paper.

I put washi tape along the diagonal edge and folded it over to make a sealed edge for the pocket top. This was repeated with the other two halves to make a second pocket.

The other two pieces of patterned paper were glued back to back and then the pockets were added using strong doubled sided tape.

I added an embellishment cluster to the bottom of each pocket.

I attached two paperclips to each pocket top to make it easier to to slip in the contents. 

Day 21

I took a photograph of a letter from one of my grandsons for the page pocket and then tied the original with golden ribbon, added a tag and slipped it into the pocket on the back of day 20's insert.

Oh and in case you've spotted the ribbon ties on the pocket insert they were added as I punched the holes on the wrong side and wanted to make it look deliberate - hush don't tell!

Day 22

Another quick and simple page focussing on the oldest and newest tree ornaments.

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

  1. Fabulous pages, Jane. I love the double sided pocket to keep your "treasures" in. Love the page about the oldest and newest decorations too......what a great idea!

  2. Absolutely love your added in pocket! The paper you've used looks like metal, really fabulous! And the 'dear Granny Jane' letter...melts my heart! How beautiful!
