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 Day's 15-18

 Day 15
Layering a little banner is always effective..and using arrows that move the eye across the page.

I havent done it yet, but dont forget to also layer on some Dimensional Magic on the paper embellishments (or rough glitter embellishments) to add that smoothess and 'polish'.  
 (I ran out of drying time and light before photographing, but its on now  :) )

Day 16
There's always some fun to be had with tags and bottles.  These tags came from 'typo' so with words like these, it was an opportunity to land my scrappy friends in it!

Little jars can be filled with anything festive and be a great  addition to a page!
I dont know how old these Kaisercraft stars are...but let's say OLD (picked them up really cheap) - and yet still super perfect for a December Daily!

Day 17
Managed to get a 'poster' off the internet to head this page up.
It even said 'December' down the bottom! 

 Took the colour out of the photos to keep a 'dark' feel.
Happy to use lots of 'star' stamps and embellishments!

Day 18
Ever since 2009 when first starting December Daily's, I got the girls to fill out a Santa's list which only a few days ago after looking through the Dec Daily's on the coffee table - they had a good laugh!  My, their tastes have changed and I'm so pleased to have documented that it once was about wishing for 'Singstars and DS's etc along with some cute other bits and pieces.   

You can build up a Christmas tree by using up stickers or diecut sentiments

And had some giggles cutting out the Grinch's hands found on the net...
It adds a fun element to the page.

Using watercolour pencils, it can add definition to paper. Here I've added black on the list and around the figures on the background papers.  A touch of green on the ivy leaves and red on the berries too.
A great big golden 'H'  (and a 'P' for Paige) is another great element to add to a page. I watercoloured around these too.

Sparkly Smooch -  as you can see, its still wet here.. but once dry, it looks like a sparkly treat!
Love this stuff for little understated areas.

This definitely was a fun page to create!

I hope your December Daily's are well on their way!
We've added the 
'Completed Pages' link .....
