If you stopped by yesterday, you might have read the part of my post where I decided to create a December Daily this year. I haven't even finished last year's December Daily nor have I started one for this year, but I'm determined not to let these minor details trip me up! ;)
So after I signed off from my post yesterday I grabbed my incomplete 2010 December Daily, the papers and photos and got to work. I knew that if I spent too much time on any one page that I would never finish it so I went real bare bones and simply added the photo, some patterned paper and the date to each page.
It's funny how my memory told me I only had a few pages left to complete. NOT! Anyway, see how simple my pages are? Here are some pretty packages I wrapped for a friend of mine.
Baking day, acting goofy, holding up a rather large piece of peanut brittle. Simple page...just a strip of pretty paper, the photo and date circle. I used October Afternoon papers and made the date circles.
Here's a photo of our tree at night. So much prettier than the picture I posted a couple days ago!
Ah, Christmas eve! We spent the afternoon baking sugar cookies for Santa. Well, we made a few for us too! ;)
Now that the basics are done, I'll be able to make another pass with the title, journaling and a few accents. I've seen a lot of gorgeous December Daily albums out there with lots of fancy designs and accenting. Maybe this year, I'll keep up with it and be able to do something a bit more elaborate, but having done most of last year's album in a day, proves that it doesn't have to be a real time consuming project.
So, are you creating a December Daily? Did you buy a particular kit? The one I photographed here is a small binder style album created with a vintage book. I purchased it on Etsy. Then I picked a Christmas collection of patterned papers I liked and went from there. I'm planning on the same routine this year. I hope you enjoyed seeing my December Daily. :)
