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.

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.

Bec's Preparation for Project Life Style........................

Here is the preparation I am taking for my December Daily 2014.

With these bits. 
Doesn't look like much of an album does it?

Some papers and some chipboard..............

Oh! And one of these......

That's right! I'm making my album from scratch, very much like I used to do with all my previous December Daily's (except last year when I used a pre-made album)

I decided again to make my own album for the challenge, but also to have the shape and size that I wanted. The store brought ones are great, but I wanted to see if I could do it AND tailor it to my
needs and wants in an album. Plus, I found some awesome red timber paper to make a 'door' looking album.  It all fell into place and perfect to just make my own.

These are the main yummy goodies I will be playing with in my album.
I'm going to try and stick with the Gold, Kraft, White and touches of red with jute/twine and natural timber patterns. 

With some pre-made cards that I will alter/embellish (maybe) and cards cut down from the
Teresa Collins, Bo Bunny and Kaisercraft papers.

My papers, stickers, cards and pocket pages are all kept in this tub, all in the one place.
It's easier to find and work from.

 And embellishments, tape, sequins and ink pads are kept in this bowl for quick access.

 I can't wait to get started!!!!
