December Daily - A Little Catching Up


I'm back today with a catch-up post to share some a few more pages from my December Daily album.  

The first spread follows the Grinch page I previously shared.  I found a star transparency that I've had for a while and thought it would make a nice divider page in the album.  I cut a 6x8 piece of it, added a tabbed sticker to the side, punched a couple of holes and put it right into the album.




The page underneath is a full 6x8 photo.  I added a digital stamp and journaling using the Letterglow app and I really like how it turned out.



I've also been using some of the pages I pre-made back in November and that has been helping me stay on top of this project.  The next spread is about our Christmas Tree. 



I used one of the pre-made pages on the left, a full-size 6x8 photo on the right and a 3x8 insert between them.


The 3x8 inserts are digital journaling cards from In a Creative Bubble here.  I added some tiny gold stars to the trees on the first card and then wrote the story about this year's tree on the second card.



The next spread is composed of two 6x8 pages.  The left side is a holiday bucket list and the right side has a flip-up pocket with a photo beneath it.


In past years, my December Daily albums have included "to do" lists of chores but this time I've included a "to do" list of fun activities.  This bucket list is available as a free download from Mandy and can be found on her blog "Turquoise Avenue" here.  I matted it on a piece of gray plaid patterned paper and added a couple of puffy asterisks from Felicity Jane.


The opposite page is not in a page protector so that the flip-up piece is easily accessible.  I used a stamp from the Stamp Market on the top of the flip-up and then added a little label under the photo to hold the journaling.


The next spread continues on the back of the one above.  I used a pre-made page on the left - a 6x8 wreath page that I embellished with small gold stars.  The right side has 4 3x4 pockets.

I embellished some of the pockets with chipboard banners and a red puffy heart, all from Elle's Studio.



My final page for today is on the back of the previous page, so there are 4 3x4 pockets on the left.  I paired them with a large tag that was a bonus gift from Ali Edwards during the early ordering period of her December Daily products.  What you see below is actually the back of the tag - I covered it with a pretty woodgrain paper from Elle's Studio.



I added some digital stamps to the photos before I printed them.  I'm again using a couple of the pre-made cards.


I turned another of my pre-made cards into a flip-up, attaching it to the tag with some washi tape.  I first adhered another card to the back so there would be something there when the card was flipped and then placed another card at the bottom to hold my journaling.


So that's what I've put together so far.  Are you making a December Daily this year?  How is it coming along?
