Deb's Days 20 - 23.

Day 20.

I had a few photos for this day so decided to make a pocket to hold them.   Using red cardstock, a manilla tag and a scrap of green for the pocket, I then stamped stars and water coloured some of them.  Using 4x6 Project Life style cards for the front and back covers, I've made a little book with the photos, punching a hole in the top to tie the ribbon through.   

There are 3 colour photos on 4x6 photo paper, some with 2 and 4 photos on each piece.  A black and white photo was used on the front cover.  The ribbon is then tied to the manilla tag on the pocket so if they fall out they won't get lost.

Day 21.

A double page.  I've put strips of patterned paper along the sides and added a couple of corners.

and because I had quite a few photos again for this day, I cut some cardstock, folded it up and glued the base to the book page.  Added a few embellishments ready for my photos and journalling about the day. 

and underneath. 

Day 22.

I've used water colour pencils again to colour parts of the angels on the border.  AND tried the water soluble Neo Colours again for the sky and grass.  I was a little more careful with the amount of water this time so it didn't bleed through to the previous page.   A strip of paper was added to the side again and used for journalling and because the side of the book page was stronger I've moved the paper clip from the previous page to the side instead of the top.

 Added in a page after Day 22 with another Christmas carol printed on the cardstock.  I've included a  photo of two paper mache reindeers that I had painted and decorated back in November but thought this might be a good page to show them off.  The reindeers didn't have red noses like Rudolph though. Some more stamped holly added to the corner and red berries cut from a hole punch.

Day 23.

Was done on the back of the added page.  I've covered the cardstock with some patterned paper and some embellishments.  It was "one of those days".

We are getting closer and closer to the end of December.   Not long to go now.
We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
We'd love to see them!


  1. Good on you trying the colour pencils again. Love the soft vintage look they give...& the flip out... genius! Hadn't thought of doing one that way!!!!

  2. Again, so gorgeous Deb. Love the way you attach photos so they don't get lost. The watercolour really gives life to your pages, and totally love your Rudolph page! Those deers look amazing! Great flip book attachment too!

  3. Oh those reindeer are so cute, love that page so much! And attaching the extra photos to a tag is such a brilliant idea. Enjoyed your post and seeing your little book continue to evolve.


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