Page preparation! Oh yes this is so important to a like-to-get-ahead person like me! So I started by making my numbers.
All the outside and inner mats were die cut using the three colours I've chosen for this year.
The numbers were created digitally, printed and punched.
Bit of a production line going on here, one set of colours at a time.
Numbers all prepped and time to move on to the pages. I cut thirty-one 6" x 6" squares from patterned paper and popped them into the page protectors. I'd like to say randomly, but couldn't quite do that, so they went in a brown, green, turquoise order and the numbers were popped in as well.
Some days got extra bits popped in too - just in case you know - so terrified I may forget to use something if I leave it in my stash pile!
But of course I couldn't leave it there and actually laid the foundations for a few pages when I know life is going to get particularly hectic - got a few family birthdays in December.
And I'm thinking my pages are going to be a very comfortable mix of digital bits, paper bits and stamping.
One last thing to share before I say good-bye. I've decided to challenge myself to take a photo as my grown up kind of Advent calendar and I plan - could all go pear shaped - to share each day on instagram. If you'd like to join in with me that would be wonderful - please use #janesadventchallenge and we'll countdown to Christmas together!
In the meantime, we'd love you to share all your process and December Dailys with us
We'd love to see them!
