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 9 - 12.

Day 9.

An extra page of vanilla cardstock added to the book.  

  Day 10.

Using the Acme Lablemaker that Mandy used HERE as part of the journalling.  I've also coloured in the birdie tag that was gifted to me through the year with water colour pencils.  

I decided to add an extra page in between Days 10 and 11 to include more Christmas Carols and to also separate the photos on each of the days so that they don't stick together over time. 

The back of the in between page with another Christmas song printed onto cardstock and attached to the randomly stamped background. 

and then Day 11.
Using black and white photos (both printed on the one 4 x 6 photo paper) I've used patterned paper and vanilla cardstock to matt them.
The nice little edge on the side there was actually the cut off strip on the bottom of some scrap patterned paper that I had and I thought that might make an edge for a flip over page.  I've used water colour pencils to colour parts of the pattern on the border of this page and added some little paper corners to all four corners to give the page some strength.

and it flips up so that I was able to add another photo and journalling underneath.

Day 12.
I've used a double page here........colouring the picture (or parts of the picture) with water colour pencils again.  AND I wondered how long it would take before I pulled out the gesso and painted/covered some of my little book.  The gesso was applied under the photos to make them and the journalling stand out a little better.  Some stamped leaves and red berries (made with a hole punch) were added to the pages as well as ric rac top and bottom.  Also a strip of patterned paper was added to the side edges for strength.  These little pages are way more fragile than I first thought. 

How is everyone going with their December Dailys?  I'm keeping up fairly well so far......we'll see how it goes as we get closer to Christmas. 

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


  1. Oh wow Deb, I'm so in love with your little book! LOVE your kitty! LOL.. she looks so comfy - what better place to be when storm clouds are around. Love that you have that gorgeous watercolour edging too! Soooo sweet!

  2. Book envy here! Those last two pages are so adorable. I'm getting a sense of the size now with the two pics on a 6x4 sheet - smaller than I was thinking, so cute!

  3. Love the Ric rac.... adore the bits of Holly sprinkled round & the acme labelling looks brill. Of course, my fave is the apple pastry page.... not sue I would've shared! Go you remembering to take photos:)!!!


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