December Album 2015

December Daily 2015 Days 23 Thru 25!!!

Hello my dear friends and welcome back to Days 23 thru 25 on my blog! I am a complete mixture of joy, excitement, and slight sadness to see this project coming to an end! I finished my December Daily yesterday (December 27th) and literally carried the whole album outside where my husband was working, and cried. I cried because it was done. I cried because I was happy I was done. I cried because I finished it before January 1! I cried because I am so excited to be able to present it to you on my blog.

Ok, so no more tears, just December goodness. First up, the process video for completing these last three days. Then come back to hear how everything came together, ok?

So for Day 23 I decided to use a photo I took of myself reflected in one of our large gold ornaments. The photo really doesn’t have much to do with the story, but I didn’t have a photo that went with the story. That is totally ok. Here is Day 23 as it was created for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Because I had used the brown envelope for the previous day, some changes were made.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

My story for the day was about a lady in the grocery store who stopped us to tell us how wonderful our children were and who asked if they could give them a dollar each because, it was after all, Christmas. This story is relevant since I spoke before in this album about our hard work we have all been putting in to get along better and to create better family dynamics. This was a lovely affirmation to all of us and deserved a place in this album!

So on the back of the envelope I created a gesso’d space for journaling and one of the red stars from the AE Main Kit.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

On the facing page I changed out the journaling cards a bit. I was trying to get the number 23 to pop a bit more, but I’m not sure. Oh well.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

On the photo itself I added the Twinkle word from the Main Kit, and that was all.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Here is the layout in the album, as a whole:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

For Days 24 and 25 I gave myself permission to use more photos in my layouts. I didn’t take endless amounts of photos, but there were several significant parts to the days, and I wanted to document them through more photos. Here is Day 24 as I created it for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Since our evening’s activities centered around the tree, I chose photos of the kids, around the tree.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

My story for Day 24 was really the activities of the evening: we called family meeting and came clean about Santa, and then we all brought all the presents down together, and then instead of leaving cookies for Santa we all got to enjoy those cookies we baked!

I chose one vertical photo of the tree with all the presents underneath, and two photos of the kids in front of the tree.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The tree photo is layered on top of a file transparency from Heidi Swapp (it was part of a mixed media album). For the left side I created a flip-up with journaling underneath.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Here is the layout inside the album:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Day 25 is actually several layouts. I wanted photos of each of us opening presents and I also wanted to include our Christmas morning breakfast.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

I layered the photo of my daughter Natalie on top of the Love Christmas paper from the AE Main Kit because this kid really is Christmas’ biggest fan. She truly does love Christmas, and her face shows it all over!

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The December paper, the 25 numbers, and the transparency they are layered on are all from the Main Kit. On the back of those I added the red diagonal striped star with my journaling written on top.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

I adore the way Natalie’s face peeks above the star! For the right hand side I chose a photo of three of the kids together opening stockings. This year they chose their own stockings, and several of them decided to use their Easter buckets! Because that’s just how we roll in this house….

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

I added a star banner with a word strip stapled to that photo. I added a journaling card with Christmas words layered on top. The polka dot transparency card I left as it was. It is one my favorites this whole album.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

This is what this layout looked like in the original Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

And here it is completed, in the album:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The back of that layout was intended to be the last page. Here is how it looked for Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The brown envelope was used earlier, so I added two more pocket pages to accommodate the photos I wanted to include:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The left side is our daughter Emberlynn opening one of her presents. I added a vellum on the bottom pocket and left the top pocket the same.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

My stamping was pretty messy! When I put the image down on the label, it slid around a bit. So I stamped it again to make it look messy on purpose. No big deal.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The Magic and Joy sentiment were on the back of one of the journaling cards from the Ali Edwards Main Kit. That card is actually quite pretty, but these were cut off because I used the front earlier. It was sitting on my work area and I just thought it would be perfect right there.

On the right side I have photos of myself and our son Addison.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Remember that layout on Day 3 where I was playing in the Target? That was what I was playing with – those light-up talking Star Wars balls. Yeah, that’s Addison’s reaction when he opened his. So priceless. I added the Joy card using a label I had stamped earlier on and I cut one of the wood circles in half. 

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The little bird was stuck on the page protector and I wanted to keep him, so I just added a vellum tag embossed with the song. The photo of me was taken by my husband – don’t be too hard on him because the camera’s autofocus is still kaput. It was still important to me to include myself in this day!

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

That is the layout inside the album. I think if you were doing Project Life while creating a December Daily, these photos might be perfect for your Project Life spread for the week of December. But since I stopped my PL back in November, they fit perfectly right here.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

More photos here of my husband and our son opening presents. And then our Christmas breakfast. The journaling card next to Nick’s photo is from the AE kit – I just adore that sweater pattern. I layered a simple clear sticker from Pretty Little Studio on top.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

The pocket beside my husband is simply the back of the vellum tag. I also layered some washi tape on each photo. Iwanted to add something simple to each photo but not be too complicated about it. Those washi strips tie all the photos together!

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

On the right side, I included photos of our Clarice reindeer plates. I’ve been so excited to use them this year – last year I waited and waited to buy them after Christmas when they went on sale. The box came long after the holidays were over, so we put them away until December of this year!

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

I had set aside some of the tags we used for our gifts, and they were perfect for the 2×2 pockets (I can neither confirm nor deny whether I actually bought them specifically because they were 2×2…..). 

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

On the final page I included one last photo of the kids having their breakfast. I guess the sun had finally lit the room because the photo has a blue cast from the tungsten setting! Oh well. I layered the word strips, washi tape, and rubber word strips on top of the photo with a star on top.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Also, more tags.

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Here are these last few layouts inside the album:

December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25
December Daily 2015 Days 23 thru 25

Can you believe that is it?!?! I am amazed that it is done, that it is completed before January is even here. I plan still to create a final walk-thru video of the completed pages and I also want to include a round-up of all the various products and manufacturer’s products I have used. I hope you will come back to see that!

I am so incredibly thankful for you, my dear readers. Thank you for coming to see every day what’s been going on. Thank you for leaving me such lovely feedback. I am so very appreciative of your kindness and of your support of my art. I am looking forward to the new year and new projects, so I hope you will Subscribe down below!

See you soon,

Process Video for December Daily 2015 Days 20 thru 22

Hi there, I cannot believe that this month is done. Our friends In Australia are already finding Santa’s presents and the time is almost up. This album this month has been an amazing journey and I have enjoyed every moment. I am so thankful for you, dear reader, for your views and your Likes and your Shares and your lovely comments! Today I just wanted to post my process video for Days 20-22 and I hope you enjoy.

I want to wish you the most merry holiday. We will be celebrating here at home very quietly and I am thankful for that. I will return a few days after Christmas to show the final three days of this album.

See you soon!

December Daily 2015 Day 22

Hi friends and welcome back! We are so close now to the big day and I am ready and excited. Today I am showing Day 22 in my December Daily, which actually has no photos. I chose to include the kids’ Santa wish lists. Here is the layout as I created it for the Foundation pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 22

Yesterday I had changed out the transparencies and was still good with those, and I took out the page protector so I could place the brown paper envelope instead.

December Daily 2015 Day 22

I took out the number 22 and just adhered it down to the envelope, easy peesy.

December Daily 2015 Day 22

On the left side top pocket I cut down the Oh Joy! card and glued some enamel dots using Glossy Accents to give the snow globe a little dimension.

December Daily 2015 Day 22

On the lower pocket I added a journaling card and a glitter title. I am loving that gold font and have almost used that alphabet up!

December Daily 2015 Day 22
December Daily 2015 Day 22

And here is a final look at the layout outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 22

Just one more day to go. I hope to post my process videos tomorrow for these past three days, and then I plan to take the rest of the week/weekend off from blogging and video-ing so we can enjoy our holiday. I hope you are feeling inspired to go, do, and create!

See you soon,

~Theresa

December Daily 2015 Day 21

Welcome to Day 21 in my December Daily album! For my story today I chose a couple of photos I have taken over the last few days. We have been baking cookies, just a few at a time. I am beginning a new tradition for us as a blended family in which I am hoping we can sit together as a family on Christmas Eve, enjoy our cookies (leave some for Santa, of course), and just enjoy each other’s company.

Here is Day 21 as it was for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 21

Because I had worked with the Pretty Little Studio transparency on Day 20, I decided to repeat that element across the page.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

I chose some photos that had been taken at different times on different days, some were taken by me on my phone, and others were taken by my husband on his phone. I alternated photo/transparency across the layout to bring repetition and unity.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

I moved the number 21 to the left side. I added a few stamped elements to the photos, and another circle tag from Pretty Little Studio on top of the transparency.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

On the right hand side the same alternating photos/transparency, plus journaling in a flip-up pocket.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

 

The top photo flips up to reveal the journaling for the day. I used one of the pages from the logbook that was part of the Main Kit while supplies lasted. Definitely worth buying the kits early to get one!

December Daily 2015 Day 21

My journaling spilled over to the back side too.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

The bottom pocket is actually 4×6, but I treated it like it was two 3×4’s to keep consistency. The transparency is slightly wider than 3×4, so I adhered it to the photo by that overlap.

December Daily 2015 Day 21

It was important for me, with this layout, to document how far our family has come. We have been a blended family for 4 years, and when we began this journey no one told me it would take 2-5 years for the rough parts to begin to smooth out. No one could have prepared me for the intense emotions that joining two families would bring, to each and every one of us.

Part of the reason I participate in December Daily projects every year is because I want to record the journey we are on. Not just to say, look here’s what we did, but to process and discuss and reflect on the significance of the events as they happen. This story today could have just been photos and journaling that just said here we are baking cookies, but I took time to process exactly why these photos were significant.

We weren’t just baking cookies. We actually spent some time together starting a new tradition of togetherness, and we actually got along. No hard feelings came along, no attitudes, no anger or hostility. I cannot tell you how hard each and every one of us has worked to be able to do that, and that work has been messy, at times nasty, and sometimes the worst of humanity.

Of course we still have miles to go. More to process. More difficult feelings to work through. More paths to follow. But this month, in this album, I am celebrating the progress we have made. I wrote the other day how these are the Christmases our children will talk about for the rest of their lives. I’m so happy that those conversations will be merry and bright.

Here is one more look at the layout outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 21

I hope that you, as you are documenting your own family events and photos, will also take time to explore why the photos are significant to you and your family. I hope you are inspired to go, do, and create today.

See you soon,

~Theresa

December Daily 2015 Day 20

Hi there, welcome to Day 20 in my December Daily album 2015! The day’s story was really when three of our kids decided together to play a game of Monopoly. The fourth one didn’t want to play with them and did not want to be included in the photo, but later on she joined them at the table just to hang out. I consider these moments some of the most important ones for them, and so this story is about that. Here is Day 20 as it originally was created for the Foundation pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 20

I absolutely love everything about this layout. I did make a few changes to fit the story.

December Daily 2015 Day 20

On the left hand side I added my photo, plus a round metal tag stamped with the December Memories sentiment from Ali Edwards’ stamp set. 

December Daily 2015 Day 20
December Daily 2015 Day 20

I added the banner from the Main Kit on top of a label from Pretty Little Studio. The banners and flair on top of the photo are from Pretty Little Studio as well.

December Daily 2015 Day 20

On the right side I decided to switch out the transparency from the Main Kit and replaced it with a transparency from Pretty Little Studio. I layered a Santa on top.

December Daily 2015 Day 20

I honestly adore how I ended up cutting the 20 apart so it would fit in the pockets. I may repeat this technique more often in future Project Life and December Daily albums!

December Daily 2015 Day 20

That star icon from the One Little Bird Kit is one of my favorite icons in the entire December Daily collections that were offered. I wanted to use that star as the backdrop/lines for my journaling, so I did just that and added a tiny banner plus a heart in the corner.

Here is a look at the layout outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 20

This project is amazing, and you are wonderful for following along and supporting me along the way. I hope you are also feeling the magic and the inspiration to go, do and create!

See you soon!

December Daily 2015 Day 19

Hi there and welcome to Day 19! It is flying by fast, so hang on. I’ve got a process video today for Days 17-19 and I hope you enjoy.

So my story for Day 19 was our adventure to see the Christmas lights at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. Here is Day 19 as I created it for my Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 19

I decided to add a photo insert with journaling on the back.

December Daily 2015 Day 19
December Daily 2015 Day 19
December Daily 2015 Day 19

On the left side, which is the back of Day 18, I added a photo of one of the arches directly to the page protector, and layered my glittered title on top.

December Daily 2015 Day 19

For the photo insert, I chose a photo of one of the inflatable nutcrackers and then I layered one of the digital brushes from the Ali Edwards Storytelling set on top.

December Daily 2015 Day 19

Here is the journaling on the back, which is really just a little write up about why I love Christmas lights so much!

December Daily 2015 Day 19

On the right facing side I really didn’t do much. I had one more pocket to fill, so I stapled in some starburst sequins, and called it done. In case you are wondering, the number 19 is sewn over top of the patterned paper to create a pocket. I added gold circle confetti to echo the gold circles on the patterned paper.

December Daily 2015 Day 19

The top pockets on this side hold one of the Ali Edwards transparencies with a snowflake layered on top. I love it so much!

December Daily 2015 Day 19

Here is the layout inside the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 19
December Daily 2015 Day 19

I just love how this day turned out and I especially love how quickly it came together, since the foundation pages were so well done. My album is getting quite thick – I am both relieved that the month is winding down, but also almost sad to see it end! Still a ton to do though, so time to go, do and create.

See you soon,

~Theresa

Fly-by posting today with Day 18 of my December Daily. I’ll be back tomorrow hopefully with process video and Day 19 for you!

Day 18 in the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 18
December Daily 2015 Day 18

I did the most simple layout about wrapping gifts with my husband.

December Daily 2015 Day 18

I added two photos, one of my husband (this photo I’ve done in past albums, of him in our bedroom wrapping. I love the lighted wreath above our bed and it’s just a very romantic setting to me.) The other is of our gifts. I don’t have tags yet, so we just have sticky notes on them for now.

December Daily 2015 Day 18
December Daily 2015 Day 18

On the right side I only added a label with a stamp.

December Daily 2015 Day 18

I can’t for the life of my figure out why I have that one random white star beside the Be Joyful banner! but oh well. There it is.

December Daily 2015 Day 18
December Daily 2015 Day 18

And here is the layout outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 18

I hope you’re having a fantastic pre-Christmas weekend! Thanks so much for being here! Now go, do and create!!!

See you soon,

December Daily 2015 Day 17 Plus a Video for Days 14 Thru 16!

Hi there, it’s another lovely December day and we are moving right along. I almost feel a slight panic when I see the 17th of December on my calendar – there’s still so much left to do! I have caught up on the process videos and have Days 14 thru 16 for you to see right here. Then stay tuned to see Day 17, ok?

Alright, now for Day 17. Here is the layout as I created it for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 17

And here it is completed and in the album!

December Daily 2015 Day 17

We had Nick’s first National Academic League competition, and no photos were allowed. No worries, though, because it was still a great opportunity afterwards, to get a photo of the three of them. Natalie was sick so she wasn’t able to go with us. That is ok. I placed the photo on top of the transparency and added the two banners plus another gold star.

December Daily 2015 Day 17

I absolutely love these silver stars and they are perfect layered with the little tiny seventeen chipboard word.

December Daily 2015 Day 17

For the right hand side I used the top card for journaling. I love the messy lines (Ali Edwards uses those a lot in her layouts and they are so easy to create).

December Daily 2015 Day 17

I took out the vellum card so I could add some of the word strips to make a sentence. I also added another strip of washi tape across the bottom, just to make it more cohesive (maybe? I dunno….).

December Daily 2015 Day 17

The other two pockets I left alone. I am so happy for all the work I put into the foundation pages, so that completing the actual days is so very simple.

December Daily 2015 Day 17

Here is one more look at the overall layout, outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 17

I am loving this project so much, and am so thankful that you are following along with me. Now go, do, and create! I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 18!

See you soon,

~Theresa

December Daily 2015 Day 16

Hi friends, it’s Day 16 here on the blog for my December Daily series! I just want to thank you for checking things out and for following along every day. I hope you are having a fantastic December and that you are leaving here feeling inspired. Just a note as we approach the final few days before the big day, that I am planning to continue posting daily until the 24th, but will probably be spacing out process videos every 3 days. Don’t worry, everything will still be video’ed and presented here! But tomorrow is the last day of school for our kiddos and that means my creative time will be a bit shorter. After the 24th I plan to take the 25th and 26th off from video-ing and scrapbooking, then I will return for one final December Daily post to wrap it all up.

Alright, so here is Day 16 as I created it for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

I could not wait to add a photo to the top of the transparency, and my daughter Natalie wrote a great little story that goes perfectly there:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

This girl absolutely loves Christmas. She gets so excited about all the things related to Christmas – the presents, the tree, the ornaments – she loves it all. Her story was about her tree she drew, and I love her black moon that, to her, proves everyone was asleep:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

The bottom half of the page is a transparency with printed words from the Ali Edwards Main Kit, which has been cut down and layered on top of a clear transparency so the photo would have a home. The gold stripe washi tape holds it in place, and the silver star lets us know it is Day 16.

December Daily 2015 Day 16

On the other side I included a close-up of her holding the drawing and the story. She had made a little book, and I really wanted to put the whole booklet in the December Daily album, but she was adamant that I could only take pictures of it. Ha.

December Daily 2015 Day 16

I love her drawing so much, and since she had included her special black moon, I added the stars via another transparency on top. That transparency is housed in a flip pocket by Simple Stories so it can be opened and the drawing seen without:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

Above her drawing I added one of the white wooden trees in the Main Kit, and I stamped words plus added the silver glitter tape to each tier. A star on top and it’s perfect:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

And here is a final look at the layout outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 16

I love these stories and I love when our children become involved with the December Daily process! This girl especially loves to see what I’ve created each day. I hope you are loving it too, now go, do and create!

See you soon,

~Theresa

December Daily 2015 Day 15

Hi there, welcome to Day 15 in my December Daily series! Today I chose to highlight our daughter Emberlynn by showing an event that she participated in at her school. This event, a dance performance, actually happened a few weeks ago, but I think it was a highlight of her year and she doesn’t really have anything going on in the month of December. So this was a great opportunity to create a layout about her.

 

**A note about these photos: I am highly sensitive to the issues going on in our schools this week, and it breaks my heart that schools are under attack in the name of fear. These photos show children that attend my daughter’s school, and in the interest of privacy and security, I have blurred faces and the name of the school. Thank you for understanding the importance of this matter.

Here is Day 15 as it was created for the Foundation Pages:

December Daily 2015 Day 15

Here is the completed layout, in the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 15

Because the number 15 was sort of fading out, I decided to back it with a simple patterned paper. I also changed out the journaling card, because I wanted more space to journal.

December Daily 2015 Day 15

For the photo, I layered it on top of the Let it Shine card and added a few silver stars. I also lightly stamped stars onto the photo itself, although they are very light and hard to see.

December Daily 2015 Day 15

For the left side, I added a couple of labels and journaled on top of them.

December Daily 2015 Day 15
December Daily 2015 Day 15

Here is one more of the layout, outside of the album:

December Daily 2015 Day 15

Thank you so much for following along every day! I hope you are feeling inspired to go, do, and create.

**December Daily is the creative brainchild of scrapbooking genius Ali Edwards, and is a process of documenting December memories by photographing and writing stories each day. To learn more about this project, and find links to shop for products, please visit her website here.

Several items used in this layout were part of kits that I ordered throughout the year from Gossamer Blue. The label with the black border and the silver glitter stars are those items. Also, some of the items I have used are, sadly, no longer available. They are the gold letters used to spell Shine (they are Basic Grey), and the label with the red border (Jillibean Soup).

This website is affiliated with Amazon.com, and for that reason I try to post links to available products on Amazon to help you with your own scrapbook shopping. When you click and purchase products through these links, you support this website (and our family!), and for that I thank you kindly!
