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. Maybe you havent made one before and ask 'I cant think what I'd fill a page with everyday?' We'll help with that! Whatever your style we'd love to see it! Here you will find a seasonal blog open from 1st November to 31st January each year. We hope that this will become a wonderful resource of sharing, prompts and inspiration. What is a December Daily? Its a mini-album recording your daily memories capturing the spirit of December. Bring it out with your decorations each year and remember Christmases past. Scroll down on the right side bar and you will find past December Daily albums of each Designer, scroll a little further and you will see the albums categorised into types for easier searching :)

Mandy's Days 25 & 26

 

 Here it is....
the last two days of my December Daily :) 

DAY 25
This is the reverse side of Day 24

The white Christmas trees on the transparency arent covered up as much on this side,
 the trim and doilies are still visable and the matching shaped date tag
which worked well this side too  



Christmas takes up a couple of pages... 
*Note for next year..... make sure I'm in photos!*
(you can see where I've been)
It's not until I scrap my pages that I realise, I'm probably not in many if any of them!

 The trim (which was just from the $1shop) folded in half and sewn along the edge.


The little line of Christmas trees are coloured here and there with a white 'jelly roll' pen. I've found this to be the best in white colouring and journaling there is and I've tried dozens and dozens of brands! Beware though... make sure the pen has 'O8' on the side of it.  It could be branded 'icecream', but dont accidently buy the 'glaze or souffle'  - they are clear or only just white.  I use the '08' jelly roll pen for my art work on other projects too.... LOVE it!

 Glad to use up very very old rubons!! And held my breath it would all stick smoothly (we all know how badly old rubons can go!) 


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

DAY 26 
Green on this side... (all the pages consist of two papers together for extra strength)
Another older basic grey paper :)

A tiny star stamp (on the end of my finger!) was used to stamp all over the photos and paper 
finishing off with some bling!

------------------------------------------------
On the back cover....for the 26th

The front page of our local newspaper had a fabulous photo so used that to finish off 
as we fall into a state of 'holiday-ness' lol!

The background is just a few different Project Life cards cut up, switched around or shortened

 All finished off with some Basic Grey Jovial stickers.

  4. ALWAYS divinely inspiring....those doilies in the transparency. DROOL. ADORE the way you've used the 'swirls' in different places. go you with those rub ons. THANKS for the Gelly roll 'tip'.....it's THE most frustrating thing, finding a decent white pen.... & the newspaper cover. that's not only a classic, but a brill piece of ephemera!!!
