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 Pages 8-10

Day 8
First off..... I have to apologise for the quality of these photos... but oh my!!  Trying to photograph transparencies on a bright day - weeeeeell, I cant even begin to count how many photos I've taken! These are the best of a bad lot!   All I can say, is the use of transparencies (seeing in real life) is fantastic and adds a  wonderful dimension to your album!  Just very hard taking photos of it!

These are Basic Grey 'Take Note' overlays.... love them!
And running a 'bauble' trim along an edge of a page works a treat too!

Day 9
 This is a full page transparency (old Hambly Print Screen) so the photo and matting is front and back of the transparency, the black number and journal block is front and back - so is the die cut negative frame, the word strips and the stars - all front and back.  The only thing that isnt are the wreaths which can be seen through on the next page.  
(Ha you can also see the start of a new page beyond that!)

Day 10
Here you can see the front and back matching up.
I really love the peek-a-boo effect that happens with acetate... I love that Paige can be seen waving through a few pages - so despite the struggles with photographing... it has its charm!  
 Another thing that can finish off a page especially too if you are using glitter paper - is to use Dimensional Magic.  It smooths the coarseness (and the loss of glitter bits) and creates a 'polish'. It looks great on the word strips and below I've popped it on the flat chipboard stars too. 

How are your December Daily pages going?
