WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages.

Lizzy's Days 25-31


Oh my gosh. I do believe my life is flashing by in the blinking of my eye!
The month of December is a case in point.
ANYWAYS, I have managed to FINISH my DD!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 25
Christmas Day.
A big one.
And I really 'had' to use colour.
Luckily, the ex-travel book I'm using had 2 plastic sleeves in
the back of it. I always knew they'd come in handy
for Chrissy photos:
Using the Becky Higgins' Project Life App again,
I've created collage style on my 4x6 photo paper,
then cut them down to size.
The writing is added with my Little Moments App.
This is basically what I did for all 4 pages, with some variations.
Here's another example:
This 'freed' me to use a black and white photo on the actual day
for Christmas!
We had it out front of our house:
I've got to the stage where my book is FAT!
So I'm trying NOT to do anymore 'flips'.
Instead, I added a journaling pocket at the bottom
and typed my journaling on vellum.
Got to use up a bit of trim along the top:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Day 26 & 27

This is a very simple spread.
Once more based on my 'thankful' list.
Both days on one page, as it was R & R
time:
A bit of washi; still using up stars too,
& I even used a Christmas 'sparkle' word on Michael's
photo!
I popped both dates together on washi up top:

-----------------------------------------------
Day 28

 I think this is the simplest, or most 'CAS' page I've done.
I used my phone app to write ON the photos,
& simply outlined them with a black marker:

Day 29:

Apart from the fact we're in the middle of a heat wave,
there was not much happening. The 'thankful' prompt
was about a 'surprise'.
Took a bit of thinking.
Once again, simple page, 'cos my book is
really thick now!!!
I'm not sure the Chrissy Bell has much to do with washi or
happy mail. But it looked nice!!!

Day 30

I used 3 small photos. Tilted to fit!
The background paper was already stuck down,
and it was too dominant.
So I added a tag to pop my journaling on.
Used up the silver glitter alphas again:

Day 31

Last day of the month!
And I've gone completely 'CAS'
[Clean And Simple]
Sometimes I think it's as important to show
how you can scrap quick, with no tricks like
flips & other clever things.
'Cos in the end, this is about getting December scrapped!

So, there you have it from me.
I hope you enjoyed going along on my DD journey as
much as I enjoyed making it:)

Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  2. Oh my, your journalling really cracks me up! We don't do New Year's Eve guff either - just too tired and old these days! Love those tilted photos, the inclusion of Happy Mail and the overall chatty, newsy style of your album. Totally fabulous memories to look back on presented in a totally fabulous, fun and sparky way.
