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'!

Deb's Days 5 - 8.

Day 5.

I had made an extension on the cardstock I used for the previous day which I then folded underneath.  The banner used on day 4  "Life is" was then continued with "beautiful" to the next page.....

which is my Day 5.

Day 6.

Is then underneath this flap.  I've included another Christmas carol as well as the day's happenings.

Day 7.

I've added a cardstock matt behind two sections cut from the Kaisercraft Story Book collection paper
and this forms a  type of a pocket to hold the tag.  I'm not sure how well it is going to sit in there but for the moment it's ok.  It may need a paper clip to hold it down. 

This is what the tag originally looked like...

and after adding some stamping, watercolouring the stars, and adding some other little bits as well as journalling it was ready to 

slip in behind here.  The "pocket" is only glued at the bottom so most of the book page can still be seen when the tag is out.  The tag also provides room for a photo and more journalling on the back. 

Day 8.

The photos were way too bright for this page so to tone down the blue bits a little I dabbed on some white gesso and then when dry rubbed over it with the sand beige ink pad.  The page is a little warped because of the "pocket" and tag at the back but hopefully will settle once the book is put together. 

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



  1. Love that pocket and tag and how you've imitated the vintage look of the book. Coming along beautifully Deb.

  2. Love your cranky cat photo! She still looks beautiful though! Fabulous flip out page and tag work to extend the festivities on! Also love the 'the decorators have arrived' thats special!

  3. My gosh! The flips & pockets.... way clever & great way to add extra bits eh? I adore that big red saying along the edge of the page:)


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