December Daily | Days 23-25

Finally finishing up my December Daily album.  It has taken me a lot longer this year.  This is what happens to me though if I don't stay on a schedule.  I fall way behind and take forever to get it done.

The baby is so fun and full of joy always.  Dancing in the disco ball light around the living room.  

I added a glittered Pow paper die cut on top of the full page photo.  I like the crisp look over the blurry photo. 

A few polaroid style photos on right.  I stitched the photos in place on white paper.  I kept red thread in my sewing machine all month long.  Keep it simple where I can.

Too much glare I know.  

 Red and silver, and black and white.  Very graphic spread for my album so far.

I added some photos from the evening of the 23rd on the back.  We went to see more lights.  I cut a large translucent card to fit the pocket.  It adds a nice dimension to an otherwise pretty flat spread. 

I finally added a picture of the tree.  I made it a half page insert.

Ryan took this picture of Lakshman and I which I put on the back.  I had this old and vintage Santa card from my Jenni Bowlin days.  I got this kraft envelope and tag in the mail from Christine, who owns Cocoa Daisy.  It was lovely to get a Christmas present. 

I used Ali Edwards Celebrate December to stamp these sentiments here.  The wood veneer is a gift tag from the Target Dollar Spot.

 Christmas morning!  Finally.  It took me so long to commit to which photos I wanted to use.

 I used a divided squares page to hold lots of extra pictures and some scraps of wrapping paper that was left over.

I lightened my photos quite a bit to get them to work on this smaller scale.  It turned out a lot better than my last divided page I think. 

More wrapping paper and photos on the back.  I made a stack of the paper on the outside and a grid inside. 

I used the main kit's transparency here.  The gold circles look fantastic in the album.  I really love the design she created.

 Elmo!  The baby is obsessed right now.  I used a large laser title and some word strips on top.  This one is a cell phone pic but it enlarged okay.

I printed out one really large pic.  I've always wanted to do this in a mini album and I think I finally had it turn out close to what I saw in my head. I had to crop it and print it on two sheets.  I used a strip of washi on one side and let some patterned paper peek through on the right.

The card is old Jenny Bowlin again.

I am so glad I blogged some Christmas memories.  It made it so easy to add all journaling together in one place. 

 I had to include at least a 4x6 photo of them reading together.

That's a wrap.

So glad it actually closes. Phew.  So, who's ready for January?



  1. I am totally in love with your mini albums and this December Daily in just so awesome!

  2. Beautiful memories. Your pages are so good. Your kids are so cute. I didn't have the guts to take on this project this year. I have done it only once. I am thinking once in three years is good enough!
