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'!

Lizzy's December Daily Kit and Ideas

Hullo there!
I'm excited to share with you some ideas I have for
my December Daily this year.
I learned a LOT from last year's attempt including this:

* I am NOT going to prepare specific spaces for my photos.
Last year, they either didn't fit or I wanted room for more.

* I WILL have a bigger book.
Last year it was 6" x 4" & I had a tough time creating extra space.
Since I am an 'Op Shopper' [junk, recycle and charity shops are my go-to
shopping places!], I had an assortment of books to choose from
already in my stash.
I have gone with the pink one
at the front, sized at 6.5 x 8.5".
* I WILL re-cycle / up-cycle & use as much of my Christmas
pizza box of stash as humanly possible.
I'm looking forward to the challenge of creating for the WHOLE
month of December with Christmas holiday bits.
Let's see how I go!

* I won't bother with a colour scheme. Too hard when using up stash.

*Because I know there is going to be a riot of colour, I am thinking
of using ALL black and white photos ~ we'll see about that one!

* If nothing is happening on certain days, I'm going,
to use the 'be thankful' list from ELISE.
This is based on her November daily journaling list from
 her blog 'FEED YOUR CRAFT'.

Finally, I WAS going to leave my
mess STASH, I mean, in the pizza box.
But realised I'd never find anything.
So I sorted it out. That was a HUGE job!
I left the patterned papers in the box.
Here's the rest, all separated up:
The groupings include:
Die cut shapes
Trees & flowers
Words / alphas
Pictures [mainly of Santa!]
& lastly, stars.

I'm feeling organised & can't wait to get started!
Hope you are feeling the same & come along on the DECEMBER DAILY journey
for 2016:)
We'd love you to share all your process and December Dailies with us

  1. Looking forward to your journey and that would be a big job sorting it all. I have pizza boxes and two large tubs m sorted in a sort of a fashion ..... sort of

  2. What an amazing stash you have there, Lizzy.......all ready to go and it is going to come together beautifully. Can't wait to share this December's journey with you.

  3. hahah, Lizzy!! got to laugh - mess/stash! that's how I feel! Love your words - all very true! You've got a great festive loot there! Happy playing!

  4. Really liking that mess .. umm .. stash you've got happening there Lizzy. Going to be a lot of fun seeing all these DDs coming together. Not sure yet if I can commit myself to a daily thing .. still thinking about it!! Can't wait to see what everyone here does though!!

  5. Going to be an absolute riot of fun with you on the team Lizzie. Your combination of absolute organisation and mad mayhem has got me totally hooked!

  6. I have done a DD the last 2 years and will again this year. We all love looking back at how the kids have grown and new babies etc. My Christmas stash is in a 13x13 plastic box - over flowing!! So might try and do a sort like yours, Lizzy!! Would certainly save time once you get going!! :)

  7. oo i was wrong about my guess of what book you would use. i thought the back travel one on the left... I am sure you will make a great DD lizzy and it will be a wonderful keepsake to look back on...

  8. Yep, I guessed the same as Lizzy C. Looks like you've got the tiger by the tail and are ready to rock it. Looking forward to seeing all the mess/projects you create. Lol. It's beyond me this year, I'm afraid.

  9. OMYGOSH!! I guessed pink and I was RIGHT! YAY me!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  10. Great assortment of supplies, Lizzy! I was nodding in agreement with so much of what you wrote and I'm excited to see what you create!


Any thoughts? We'd love to know them, please share.....
