So excited that December is finally here and I can get going on my favourite project. This year my DD will be done primarily using the Studio Calico kit plus extra items from my stash. I will also be using some digital overlays by Ali Edwards that I have bought from DesignerDigitals.
I am going to try to finish each page on the actual day and get a blog post done. I will just be using photos from the iphone to keep it quick and easy on the blog.
The first of December is the day that the Christmas tree goes up in our house (this year it was too much for Paige (4) and we did put some smaller ones up earlier in the week).
My 4 year old painted me a cute Christmas tree that just had to go on this page. The journal card is from the SC kit. I’ve been trying to use my Silhouette Cameo on this project as well, the Christmas tree cut out is one of Ali’s digital files, behind it is a shaker pocket that I made with green tree confetti and a wood veneer. (Note to self: must work harder on the handwriting).
This is a cut down page protector from Becky Higgins. I popped in a couple of the Instagrams that I had taken earlier in the week from when Paige decorated her trees. (I will be using Instagram a lot during December, if you want to follow me I am : shoppershaz)
I made us Christmas pancakes for breakfast – so easy with the cookie cutters but a good tip is to make sure you give them a good spray with oil before pouring in the mixture. The other photo is Paige with her Advent Calendar – this year is the first time that I have had one for her and she seems to really enjoy it.
This page is a sheet of clear acetate with the buttons glued on, one of them ‘escaped’ but I have glued it back down now. Love the transparent look and the photo of the real Christmas tree showing through. I will be putting in a lot of inserts and page dividers throughout the whole album, it was something I did last year too and I think it adds a bit of interest.
This is a 6×8 photo with one of Ali’s overlays. Clean and simple.
Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think.
Happy December Daily!!
