Hello Lovelies and welcome back to Scrappy Christmas In July! I am continuing today in my December Daily album for 2018 and will be sharing my process for Days 16, 17, and 18. If you’d like to see all the videos and posts related to this project, check out this link here: Larkindesign December Daily 2018. You can view my process video for today right here.

Let’s take a closer look at all the fun details of these pages, starting with Day 16. For this day I had photos from our annual trip to Tanglewood, a local lights show held in Bermuda Run, near Winston Salem each year. I have documented this show in different ways throughout the year, but this year was two quick photos and a journal card.

I had four 3×4 pockets to fill with this layout, so I printed one 3×4 photo and added a journal card at the top. The journal card was created with a lined paper as the background, from Felicity Jane. I stamped the All Is Bright (Paislee Press) and added the number tab at the bottom. The number tab is from Sahlin Studio, available at The Lilypad.

The bottom two pockets are one photo that I printed as a full 4×6 photo and cut in half. I didn’t add any embellishments so the photo can simply stand out on its own. So festive and pretty!

Day 17 turned out to be quite fun. I had a simple photo of our grocery list, which was printed as a vertical 4×6 photo that didn’t really fit into any pockets. So I made a little pocket from the black and white polka dot bag I had from my stash. It came from Clique Kits last year. I added a red label and the number 17 to the center of the bag, and also adhered a white snowflake at the fold.

My journaling for Day 17 came about using a tag from Ali Edwards and simply stamping the date, my journaling lines, and adding a little bit of ribbon at the tag. I am loving the simplicity.

When you flip the little bag over, Day 18 is on the facing page. I had a 4×6 pocket and two 3×4 pockets to fill on this page. My photos are more silliness with the Santa hats, this time with my husband Alan. I chose products that are more light-hearted and whimsical to use with these fun photos of us.

Crate Paper Merry Days and Falala have been favorite collections of mine, and this red and green patterned paper is my favorite of all time. I adhered my numbers, which are from Felicity Jane directly to the patterned paper. For my journaling card I used the heart patterned paper from Felicity Jane, using the hearts as my lines. I also adhered a banner from Crate Paper, and a few of the skater puffy stickers for fun!

My photos are printed on a 4×6 canvas and sized down to fit with a fun white space across the bottom. This was a fun little space to play with! I added the gold puffy stickers and a little scalloped border. I love showing the silly side of our relationship and always make a space in my albums every year to express my incredible thankfulness for this awesome husband I have! He and I both absolutely love the holidays and love doing all the activities together. The best part is having these memories documented right here.

December 2018 In A Travelers Notebook | Days 7 to 9 PLUS A Gift For You!!!!!

Hello lovelies, today I am sharing my process video for Days 07-09 in my December Travelers Notebook! You can view my process video below, and I will share a few photos from these days with you as well.

Day 07 was a day I had the back of a patterned paper and the star vellum to begin my layout with. I printed a full page photo, layered journaling and the date (elements from Sahlin Studio Home For the Holidays collection), and I added a simple star + word sentiment onto the vellum. My story was about how we had purchased our tree a week ago and the lights + ornaments sat on the living room floor for days before we could decorate!

Day 08 was the back side of the star vellum and my foundation pages I had created, also using the Home For the Holidays kit. I wrote a little more about our delays in decorating (ha!) and included a photo of the family in the living room, this time with the lights on the tree. I changed out my number so it was the right day. I also added the red felt heart from Ali Edwards and a tiny chipboard piece from Paislee Press.

Day 09 was all about our record snow fall in NC. We had probably over 18″ here, and it was so cold I really didn’t go out in it very much! So I created a photo collage with the Larkindesign Photo Templates I designed. You can still grab those for free via this link here.

This layout included a page protector that I had sewn into my notebook, so for this day I added a gold polka dot vellum. To the vellum I adhered a wreath die cut from Crate Paper, and on the back I added the gold puffy wreath and my number. The bow and number are from Felicity Jane.



I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for supporting Larkindesign and for being part of such an amazing community of creatives. This year has been a learning year for me, filled with lots of hard work behind the scenes, lots of tears, many wonderful friendships, and more determination going forward. I hope you will stay along for the ride, it’s going to be lots of fun.

To thank you I have created a free collection for you to help you tell your own stories from the month of December. This is a Traveler’s Notebook kit, a Embellishment kit, and a small collection of Journal Cards.

December Daily 2018 In A Travelers Notebook | Days 05 & 06

Larkindesign December Daily 2018 In A Travelers Notebook | Days 05 & 06

 

Hello Lovelies! Today I am sharing my Days 05 & 06 in my December Travelers Notebook! I will be sharing Days 03 & 04 very soon with you, as they are part of design team work I am submitting, so look for those days very soon. Of course you can find all of my videos from this project in the December Daily 2018 category. Check out my process video for today’s layouts here.

Day 05 was a somewhat frustrating day where nothing seemed to go right and it would have been easy to beat myself up and quite honestly hate on myself for not being perfect. And then my son missed his bus to get to his match for Academic League and I had the opportunity to show him extra love and compassion. I was reminded how we all need to show ourselves that same compassion when we mess up, and when things happen that are beyond our control. I began this page with one of the Larkindesign Travelers Notebook Photo Templates, which you are welcome to download here for your own projects for free!

These templates make it so easy to type in your story, add a quick photo, and print. I actually used a photo from a few weeks ago, because the day was so crazy there was not much opportunity to take any photos. This is part of making the project work for you, right? Focus on the story and find a photo that supports your story well.

This layout had the star vellum transparency, which I believe is available at Michael’s or AC Moore. I love the back side which is white on white, so I added the number 5 in white on top. That number is from the Ali Edwards 2017 December Daily product offerings. I also added a tiny gold puffy star from Crate Paper Merry Days. The branch and tiny stars at the top of the photo repeat a tiny bit of gold on the layout. When you turn the vellum to the next page, the stars are gold, and the patterned paper is black on white from Merry Days as well. I have layered a Santa on top of the snowglobe/cloche puffy sticker. I love him so much!

Larkindesign December Daily 2018 In A Travelers Notebook | Days 05 & 06Day 06 was super quick and super simple. This is the center of my notebook so I used a full page photo and added a few digital elements before printing. One of the things in our family that brings me incredible joy is the relationship our two boys have. Nick and Addison are the best of friends and thin the world of each other. It always makes my heart skip a bit when I see them walking into their school together, chatting about all the things teenage boys chat about. So I snapped this photo quickly before leaving the drop off lane. I added my text in Photoshop along with the number six from the Sahlin Studio December Days No 04. The word strips are from Home For The Holidays. Once I adhered the layout into the notebook, I remembered I had some white stars from Ali Edwards, so I added those and the layout was complete.
