Jane's Day 1

After all the preparations at last it's time to get going and share a page - well a few pages actually as I've done a couple of title pages as well as Day 1.

 Mmm, three title pages, gradually increasing in size.  I started with this gorgeous Christmas tree stamp because - well just because I love it - and it was the perfect fit for my advent photo challenge to be adhered on the back.

Next up was a little poem that always make me feel Christmassy. When the pages are closed the third page's 2016 shows down the right hand side and the first page's tree allows the poem to be seen.

Here's the first two pages all opened up.

On the back of the middle page I've adhered my 2016 weather chart. I always include this in my DD album I suppose because it's fun to compare temperatures from year to year, but mainly because it's become a bit of a habit!

Here's my largest page

And here's what's on the back of it - my December planner with a few things already written in.  Facing the large page is my 2016 manifesto or you could say my intentions for the season.

A closer look at my intentions. This was created using photoshop elements and Katie Pertiet digital supplies available from Designer Digitals.

And now on to my first proper page - yes it really is December 1st! So I started by gathering all my supplies - a die cut deer and leaf border, a stamp set, the number and a journal card.

 I started by stamping the splatter, adhering the journal card and number to my backing paper.

The deer and leaf border were added next.

And finally some gems and my journalling.

 Here's today's photo. The border was created using photoshop elements and the embellishments are Katie Pertiet digital supplies available from Designer Digitals.

I added a trio of die cut stars to the empty space on my photo and I was done. And it feels good to get the first page under my belt!

Well I'm hoping that maybe I've inspired you to play along with us here at Let's December Daily. Here's the links you'll be needing:
