Today I’m sharing days 11-17 of my December Daily. You can read more about my approach to this project and the supplies I’ll be using in this previous post.
For day 11 I created an insert to give me some extra room to add a photo. I made the insert by folding one of the 6x8 papers from the Jasmine Jones kit in half then punching holes to put it directly into my album. I kept the rest of the day simple with a numbered card from the Ashley G kit, some plain journaling and some wrapping paper and pattered paper in the bottom three square pockets.
Day 12 I was feeling a bit ba hum bug as I still getting over a cold and the weather was cold and damp so it seemed appropriate to use the ba hum bug card from the Jasmine Jones kit! To the two photos I added a stamped label and a chipboard piece. I used a journal card from the Cheer Story kit and added some more journaling along with the numbered card for the day to the back of the insert.
The rest of the week was very busy with work so I kept days 13 - 17 very simple. On day 13 I used a stamp from Kellie Stamps ‘Magic’ set for my journaling. I used another of Kellie’s Stamps along with a Clearly Kelly stamp to make the ‘Where’s the food’ card to document our lack of planning for our Christmas Day meal.
Day 14 was a busy day of running errands. I used the ‘around here’ digital file from Ali Edwards for my journaling card. My photo for today was of my walk home to document how dark it is at this time of year.
Day 15 was all about me counting down the days until my holiday leave starts and for the days to get longer (and lighter). I used the ‘December’ and ‘counting down the days’ from the December Daily class stamp set along with a patterned stamp from the Jasmine Jones stamp set. On the photo for the day I used the ‘I’m only a morning person on the December 25th’ stamp from Kellie Stamps ‘Grinch’ set and some alpha’s to record the time.
For day 16 I wanted to include some journaling about our lives right now and my feelings about it. As this was quite personal I decided to make this hidden journaling and used a envelope from my stash. I used a die to cut the hole attachers and to embellish it I added the numbered card for the day and used some black glitter tape to attach it.
On day 17 my story was the tradition of me documenting the different stamps we get on our Christmas cards, which I’ve been doing for the last few years. I make sure we keep all the envelopes we receive and then pick out my favourite stamps or those with interesting postal marks to make a page in my album. For the journal card I used another stamp from Kellie Stamps ‘Magic’ set.
