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'!

Mandy's Page Preparations


There's just a couple of alterations needed to make this Dylusions Journal work really well with the added December photos and embellishments.

There is 94 pages if counting backs and fronts of each one - so too many for a December Daily. Removing a middle pages from each signature brought down that count, missed a couple but took out ten. And now it leaves space for the filling of photos/paint/embellies!

Just a slip of the knife underneath the stitching (got to be REALLY careful not to cut the thread!)

And a little tug, it comes away well

I dont tend to do a lot of preparation on each page before December 1st, though a good splash of paint on the black pages certainly is an idea  :) 

Totally love glitter paper... might stick to die cut numbers :) 

And probably will add a diecut word or two :)

Ooooh and lastly,  got my hands on these fabulous and somewhat whimsical stamps.
Just have to have a good think about how/where to use them!!

Not long now until the 1st of December!
The Christmas decorations will come out, and my past December Dailys will soon be placed on the coffee table again.   I love how each one is so different and how each one becomes such a laugh and chat with friends and family.   So happy another one will be making its way among the mix!
 If you want another peek at my December Daily stash...HERE
Or how the cover was created HERE
In the meantime, we'd love you to share all your process and December Dailys with us
