Oh my goodness, I could probably burst with excitement for this month and all the creative goodness that comes with it. There is no doubt that December Daily is my favorite project of the year, something I prepare for almost all year long, something I talk about all year long, and something I look to be inspired for every day. You’ve chosen to look here today for your own inspiration, and for that my heart could burst three times. Thank you for being here and for following along.
I have my Day 01 ready to show you! This post will be short and simple, there is no video, and most days this month will probably look like this. I plan, however, to create process videos in batches – my plan is to try to post a process video every three days or so, and group the days together. But let’s get on with the good stuff. Here is Day 1 as I created it for the foundation pages.
I left myself some options here: I could use one photo layered on top of the vellum stars where the December 1 tag is, or I could add a page in there if it turned out to be a photo heavy day. It turned out to be a photo heavy day because we attended the Wilmington, NC Flotilla!
So I decided to layer a photo over the vellum like my original plan, and then I moved the transparency from the opening of the album to this day so it could accommodate more photos and the story of the day.
I created a flip-out page using Ali Edwards Digital Template No. 2 and dropped three photos into their spaces. I left one space open so I could add the journal card from One Little Bird. To separate each element I added silver glitter tape that is from Ali Edwards Spark Story Kit. My journaling reads as follows:
Above the journaling I used the star screenprint that came in the Main Kit.
On the fold-out photo on the top I added a simple star clip and stamped Joy is December.
On the other side I added some stamping to the diagonal stripe card and a banner from One Little Bird.
And for the photo of the sky I added a gold title, the tag, and an wooden anchor that I had in my stash.
Nothing very complicated, although this is a photo heavy layout (5 photos in all) and I did include a lengthy journaling piece. Today just happened to turn out that way, but tomorrow may be very simple and short. I hope you enjoyed today’s layout, and please hit Subscribe so you can see the rest of the album right in your inbox!
See you soon!
**December Daily is the brainchild of creative genius Ali Edwards, and is a process of preserving the memories of December within a daily album by creating one layout per day. More of this project, and links to purchase the kits used in this layout, plus the digital templates, can be found here.
Some of the products I have used in this layout are, sadly, no longer available, but should still be attributed. They are: the star shaped paper clip (Two Peas in a Bucket), Ho Ho Ho file tab (Jillibean Soup), and the wood anchor I believe is Teresa Collins.
