December Daily - Tags, Vellum and Envelopes

I've been using quite a few tags in my December Daily this year - they're perfect for journaling, add a little something extra as an embellishment, and are a great size for the smaller dimensions of my album.

This first spread includes two tags. One is a pre-made decorated tag and the other a plain white office-supply variety. There's also another tag from an earlier page peeking out on the left.
The opposite page is a vellum sheet on which I printed a free download from Ali Edwards. I definitely like the way the vellum just slightly obscures the page underneath it.
The full spread looks like this:
When I put together my pages in November, I intentionally added a glassine envelope because it would be a great place to hold any of the lists I usually include in my December Daily every year.  
I wrote my Christmas Eve dinner menu on some white cardstock, added a few stamped details and placed the paper into the envelope.
I used another tag on this last page. I made it out of a scrap of embossed paper, added some twine and slipped it behind my photo so that it pulls out on the left side.
Here's a look at the tag outside of the photo pocket:
My album is starting to get a little chunky - it's a good thing Christmas is just around the corner!


  1. Please tell me the photo of the snowman frame is new! I felt bad for your sadness at not finding one yourself so am hoping that someone gifted you one! That photo of the ceiling hung with ornaments is incredible! How on earth did they DO that? It's magical. Have loved taking your December journey with you this year. xo

    1. That little round wooden ball with the snowman is new. It was a surprise from my mom. She bought it at a fair this fall and had no idea at the time that we wouldn't be going to our usual craft show. I was so happy to get it! And the restaurant ceiling just stopped us in our tracks as soon as we walked in - there had to be thousands of ornaments dangling from individual ribbons. We asked the staff and they said they love how it looks but it takes them a couple days to get them all up.
