December Daily Days 1-9

Friday, December 9, 2016

Happy holidays!! Today I'm talkin' all about my December Daily for 2016. If you are not familiar with the "December Daily" - might I suggest a quick stop at Ali Edwards' blog?:  :)

My cover page is a picture of our Christmas tree with Rachel the cat all cozy underneath. There are so many different stories I wanted to tell about this photo so I typed a bunch of journaling, printed it on a card, and tucked it behind the photo. I print my large 6x8 photos at home, but the quality isn't top notch so all the other pictures are printed at Rossman.

So chunky already and we're only 8 days in! Ack! Has anyone ever filled 2 albums for one year??? This is the biggest December album I've made and I'm really loving the larger format - more photos, bigger photos, more journaling, bigger everything!

I made a few Christmasy things here and there throughout November and am having fun figuring out how to incorporate them into my December Daily - like the stitched "JOYFUL" card. I didn't even mean for it to perfectly match Jane's sweater, how serendipitous :)

I saw this photo reel idea for sharing favorite holiday movies by @dawnnikolpl on the December Daily facebook page! Cute!!

It was actually really easy to pierce holes through the cover with a piercing needle to make the string art star! Give it a go :)

  1. You are AMAZING!! This looks FANTASTIC so far! LOVING that stitching and the reel ... GENIUS!!!! I only have days 1-3 done so far, I have to pick up photos from Walgreens today to work on 4-8 --- I am going a little simpler this year, I am using a Simple Stories SNAP! album ... thought it might be easier with the inserts :)
