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.

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?

Deb's Days 13 - 16.

I found these Project Life cards lying on my desk amongst the mess lol and thought they might work for both Days 13 and 14.

Day 13. 

Using both sides of the cards, I made a little pocket and tag for journalling.  Also adding a "corner" to the page for strength. (they are really helping)

The ric rac used on the tag was attached to the underneath of the bird so that when the tag is pulled out it won't fall out of the book and get lost.  The word "this" is attached to the tag and "day" on the pocket.

and when the tag is back in its pocket it matches up. 

Day 14.

I decided again to water colour the books sweet pictures or parts of them.  I've also added some little pearls to the dresses but didn't really like them after it was done.  Too late.....best not to pull them off on the fragile pages. They're there to stay and I'll get used to them.

so Days 13 and 14 look like this side by side.

Day 15.

Is a double page.  I only added a part border to the second page and left the rest as is......scribbles and all.

Up until now I had been using water colour pencils to colour but decided to try Neo Colour water soluble crayons on this page.  I wanted a coloured background for my flower garden and the water colour still allows the words to show through.  BUT my little book didn't like all this water coverage at all.  

It bled through to the previous page and my little angels ended up getting splotches of red around and on them.

A tag was used for the journalling again (I'm using lots of tags) and photos. It's hinged with washi tape underneath and on top to allow for more journalling on the underside.

Day 16.

Is spread over the two pages as well.  Glued a scrap piece of a ruled Project Life card under the frame which gave room for a list for a no photo day.

and as I knew I would cover some of the words to this carol which is one I was never familiar with, I decided to type up what was being covered onto some cardstock and cut it into strips to continue under the first page of the carol.

How is everyone going with their December Dailys?

We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
We'd love to see them!


  1. Gosh this is looking gorgeous.....bleeding a bit of red or not! LOOOOOVE that 'window' with your girls visiting & I really love the flowers under your nursery page! I think you're doing a wonderful job with the fragile nature of your book:):)

  2. Love the rick rack tags - works a treat. And your little angels are so dainty and gorgeous all coloured up and the red bleeding through can't possibly distract from their delicate prettiness. All coming together so brilliantly.

  3. Really love how you are incorporating your DD into this little golden book .. so clever and the result is wonderful!!


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