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'!

Mandy's Days 11 - 14

 photo 5771ac68-11d3-4a7a-9dea-6a8da6e02d44.jpg 

 Day 11
 Using some wide calico fabric(also stamped), it becomes a 'pocket'... it looks like the photos are tucked in behind with other bits and pieces.  Around the outside is stitched with black thread.

The tree is a cut from a die, and the ornaments are fabulous little brads!
The strip of reindeer names is washi tape along the bottom.
I've also tucked a tag into the pocket for some hidden journaling.

Day 12
Time to trim the tree.. always a great page for content!

I had so much fun with the little tree... it's actually two trees (green glitter paper)
 cut from a die (Intricut Dies - Christmas Fir Trees - bought from LSS) placed one on the other..
then sewn down the middle to give it a little more definition. 

The bauble trim (Forever Friends Dome Border) had to be cut apart one by one to add to the tree for decoration

Day 13 
This turned out quite  'silvery' and added some hidden journaling on a tag.

Oh boy.. am I EVER in love with these dies!!!  (LeCrea 3D Dies - Pine Cones) 
I cut one lot with silver glitter paper and another lot in grey cardstock, then swapped over every second bit in a little cone-set.   How effective it's turned out!
 Definitely a favourite!

Day 14
 Fibre gives another texture layer to a page... and who doesn't love a little bit of sequin!
A row of vintage ric rac finishes off the page.

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