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.

Lizzy's Day 4,5 & 6

Hi there! Powering along & so far pretty much
keeping up with my DD!
DAY 4 & 5:
For Day 4, I used a photo that I snapped
from a magazine. Since I was watching the new Gilmore Girl
series - I figured it fitted. We don't always have to use 'LIFE' photos.
Sometimes a representation of what we're doing like this works just as well!
I've done a 'flip' here, too, as I had lots of journaling.
No surprise there. You lift UP the photo to
reveal this.... & yes! I know 'is' is spelt with a 'z'.
But I had no 'S's' left. Being creative ;)
The tabs are working well - but I realised I needed the dates
on the BACK side of them as well.
Couldn't be bothered getting out the stamps again, so I'm just
writing them on with a marker.
And who said you can't have a deer checking out the girls?
I think he looks cute! I'm enjoying using those little word
stickers around the page. I made them myself on the computer.
Finding free typewriter fonts is pretty easy with Google!
Onto Day 5.
I had a quiet day at home.
And as planned, am using the Thanksgiving List
from Elise for those days.
This one was for a family member.
It wasn't until I'd FINISHED my page I realised
it was a COLOUR photo. WOOPS!
It's because it's an older one, not taken for my DD.
So, I've decided for the THANKS days - I'll always
use a colour photo. I quite like the idea, as it will separate
daily doings with reflective thanksgiving!
I've used lots of bits. Fussy cut the little girl and boy
silhouettes; some tags, & the 'love' on the side is part of a card that also
had 'peace' and 'joy' on it. Worked a treat here!
I don't mind that it overlaps the edges of my diary a little at all:)
 I cut the vellum tag below from some paper I had in the stash, and wrapped a little copper
thread underneath as well:
 Close up of my journaling. I'm REALLY enjoying mixing the typed with the written!
Very quickly, here is Day 6:
Back to using my Project Life App by Becky Higgins.
This time with 4 frames to the 4x6 photo size.
2 of the frames have used the Digital files
from the 'CAPTURE LIFE' kit, which was a freebie.
Then I printed the whole lot using the black and white feature on my printer,
to keep the colours muted.
Decorated the non-photo pockets.
 And where's my journaling you ask?
Tucked BEHIND the photo this time!
The 'pull' tab you can see on the left, the scalloped 1/2 circle
that says 'love'.
So, that's it for me.
Getting into the 'flow' of it now.
How about you? Are you settling in & getting started?

We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
Cheers for now & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
