December Daily

I have finished my album but I just haven't had a chance to photograph all the pages. Here are some more that I have done

Day 18

The first page is just of me having fun in the garden in the snow.

How it looks in the album with the gorgeous Fancy Pants flocked transparency.

The left hand page is again a compilation of more images of that day. On the left I have used the packaging from the bingo cards to make a a strip of festive words - it was just the right size. The paper is Basic Grey and is topped with a Jenny Bowlin ticket.

Day 19

The left hand page is one of the kids sledging on the sand dunes - a totally surreal experience! I added an old Basicgrey rub-on.

Here's a better look at the photo. Notice all the Christmas trees in the background.

The right hand side is a compilation. I added a rub-on by Basicgrey and an embellishment by American Crafts.

Day 20

The left hand side is a photo of some of the wrapping paper I used this year.

I haven't added in a transparency to this page yet, but I'm thinking something red!

The left hand side is the compilation of photos and I used a piece of the actual paper along the bottom topped with a lovely K & Co. Embellishment.

Day 21

This is the photo I used for the right hand side. I wrote directly onto the photo and added a hand drawn frame with a white gel pen. It was of the icicles hanging from our conservatory.

How it looks in the album.

On the left I added the journalling together with some Love Elsie paper and matching embellishments.

I hope you like my album, it really feels as though it's coming together now.

December Daily

More photos of my December Daily - I am so close to finishing it now .... hopefully tomorrow!

Day 14

Today's photo is of some new tops that I bought for work. As I haven't worked in such a long time I absolutely nothing to wear so I had a little shopping trip. I haven't been clothes shopping in such a long time and I really enjoyed myself so I thought I would record it in today's page. The embellishment is by American Crafts and I didn't really think that I would be able to use an embellishment which included grey but this page was perfect for it.

How it looks in the album. I added in a label to the page.

I added a second label to the right hand page as the colour just looked so festive and I had lots of embellishments to match it!

Day 15

This photo is of my Christmas plates. I bought them ages ago and they come out every year on the 1st December.

This is how the album looks in the album. (oops - that's the toe of my slipper in the corner!)

The second page is made up of a Christmas card that the kids designed in school and was professionally printed. It was the perfect size for this page. I punched out their names on the verse of the card and stapled it directly to the page protector. The ribbon is old stash by Junkitz.

Day 16

This is just a snap I took at bedtime. I drew a frame and wrote directly onto the photo.

How it looks in the album with the laminated lace cardstock.

On the other page there are two more photos and some digital papers. On one I added a 'your story' layer from Ali Edwards Yesterday and Today class and on the other an epoxy embellishment by Love Elsie and a Basic Grey rub-on. The other embellishments are from Love Elsie and the paper is Basic Grey. I am determined to use up my old stash!

Day 17

This is my daughter on her way to a sleep over at her friends - hence the suitcase. We had just had a few snow flurries up until this point which was about 6pm.

How it looks in the album. The 'transparency' is a page divider with nik naks added in to it. I added the journaling to a separate page (by Making Memories) and slotted it right into the album.

The second page is of our street later on in the evening - covered in snow. It looked beautiful and I think the orange tinge from the street light adds to the atmosphere. I added a Basicgrey rub-on and a Bazzill half the edge embellishment as well as an old KI Memories word sticker.

December Daily

Here are more pages from my December Daily.

Day 11

My second eldest daughter was 8 and this photo was taken at her party. I love this photo of her to which I added some text in Photoshop. The second page was journaling

Here is how it looks in the album. The transparency is a laminated KI Memories lace paper.

Day 12

For her birthday she got a pink Christmas tree together with pink lights and decorations - bet you can't guess what her favourite colour is!

I added the journalling to a simple card and added that directly into the album. The right hand side of the album consisted of more photo embellished with paper from Fancy Pants and Love Elsie Noel chipboard buttons.

Day 13

This photo is of our tree to which I added some simple text. I'm thinking I may use this image for some Christmas cards next year.

The second page was journalling decorated with some scrap paper from Basic Grey, stickers by 7gypsies and a large ornament sticker from American Crafts. I love the simplicity of this page.

Will post more soon!
