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.

Larkindesign Scrappy Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 16 Through 18!!!

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.

Larkindesign Scrappy Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 16 Through 18!!!

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.

Larkindesign Scrappy Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 16 Through 18!!!

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.

Larkindesign Scrappy Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 16 Through 18!!!

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!

Larkindesign Scrappy Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 16 Through 18!!!

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.

Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

 

Hello Lovelies! I am here today with another layout from my 2018 December Daily album for Days 14 and 15. If you’d like to see all the posts in this series I invite you to check it all out here: Larkindesign December Daily 2018. Here is my full process video for today’s layout.

 

Let’s take a closer look at these fun pages in my 2018 December Daily album!

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

 

For Day 14 I had a photo of our Christmas tree. This is a detail photo that is taken from my perspective on the living room sofa. I love the twinkle of the lights and the detail captured in this photo! I have chosen to use products from Felicity Jane in this layout. These are kits from the past two or three years, Holly, Joy, and Hello Christmas.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

My photo is a bit dark and dramatic, so it was important to me to keep the rest of the layout light, while still incorporating the black and white theme I have going. For my photo I layered a green branch with a red chipboard circle.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

Underneath the photo is a 4×6 journal card that I created with the black and white floral. I adhered a graph paper 3×4 card and the Holly girl on top, and then added my journaling. I also stamped the magic and the stars as well.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

Here you can see how I added my date: I cut the star transparency in half and then layered a shipping tag on top. I stamped the day number and added the 14 with the puffy stickers, and tied a little bow using red twine.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

On the back I added the number 15, and then attached both tags with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

Day 15 was just a few photos of my wearing my favorite Santa hat, the pink one. I have continued the black and white with red and a bit of green as well here.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

For this page I had (4) 3×4 pockets, so I decided to use two of the photos and two journal cards, alternating. I chose the pretty wreath here at the top and added a tiny rubber word strip at the bottom. I added a simple chipboard banner to the top of my photo here as well.

Larkindesign Crafty Christmas In July | December Daily 2018 Days 14 and 15!!!!

I used the diagonal stripe card for my journaling below. I layered the silver heart and the  label on top of the stripe for a bit of embellishing, so simple. I then added a tiny half circle chipboard to the bottom of my second photo.

These layouts bring me so much joy every year! I am so very happy to share them with you and thank you for joining me! See you again soon!

December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

Hello Lovelies and welcome back to my December Daily Summer Series! Today I am so excited to participate in a YouTube Hop called the Crafty Christmas In July Hop, which is hosted by the every fabulous Heather Little. There are so many amazing ladies participating and I hope you will check out all of them through the links provided below. Each crafty lady will be sharing one layout per week throughout the month, and today I am sharing a layout from my December Daily 2018 for Days 12 and 13. Check out all the posts for this project here: Larkindesign December Daily 2018.

I am so excited to continue in my December Daily album and am starting to get a good feel for how the album is coming together. There is definitely a red, black, and white theme going! Let’s have a good look!

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

Days 12 and 13 are both included on the same layout, so it makes sense to complete the layouts at one time and that helps to make them flow visually. This is one definite advantage of creating your album after the fact! I had a 3.5x.3×5 photo for Day 12, and a 4×6 photo for Day 13, and that left a few pockets to fill.

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

I also wanted to add a divider in between these two pages, so the two days will feel like their own page in the album. I chose the red 3×8 transparency from last year’s December Daily add-ons from Ali Edwards and used that transparency as a home for the day numbers. You can see the tiny woodgrain 12 at the top!

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

For this side I had (2) 3×4 pockets, so I am repeated the red with the hexagon rubber shape, I am including the rose gold with the handwritten December card, and I used a black and white card as a filler as well. This is the color palette for this page and I am loving keeping it very small.

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

For the bottom 4×6 pocket I began with the photo and layered it on top of a 4×6 red card. I needed a bit of space for journaling, so I cut up one of the Paislee Press journal cards to fit in the space left by the photo. I added a bit of journaling about how giant the snow piles were in the Target parking lot! I also clipped a little heart paper clip from Felicity Jane and added a red banner to my photo.

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

My story for Day 13 is about the stockings we put together every year. I absolutely love the stockings we do every year, filled with so much candy and treats and little fun finds! I photographed the giant heap of supplies we had bought before we wrapped it all and used this as my photo for this day.

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

You can see the Number 13 at the top, on the back of the transparency. This number is from Sahlin Studio. She does an amazing pack of digital number sets every year so if you are looking for some great options for numbers, go check them out at The Lilypad!

Larkindesign December Daily Days 12 and 13 | Crafty Christmas In July YouTube Hop!!!

I kept the photo very simple and only added the Crate Paper banner in the center of the photo. For my 4×6 pocket I used the geometric wreath card from Paislee Press. This is one of my favorites from all of the product released last year! I added the Santa chipboard inside the wreath, and stamped lines across the bottom for my journaling.

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

Hello everyone! Today is epic – four days jam packed into one video so you are going to want to grab a cup of something delicious and settle in. I am sharing the last four days of my 2017 December Daily album!

I have sooo many photos to share, so I will just add those below without much chit chat. 

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

Above are the foundation pages for Days 22 and 23. All products from Felicity Jane but the black and white sequins (Teresa Collins); cork trees (Freckled Fawn). The stories for these days are about going to the movie Father Figures for date night, and my mother’s plate rack and the cookie bar I set up for the kids.

Day 24.

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

All products from Ali Edwards and Paislee Press. Photo template is my own. The story for this day is about how we have the kids bring all the gifts downstairs all together. It’s so much fun and they get so excited seeing them all, looking for their names, and just having the best time!

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25


And lastly, Day 25.

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25
Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

I always plan for more than one page for Christmas Day. I know that I will want to include photos of each one of us, plus the tree, plus any other photos that tell a story. My first foundation page features product from the Larkindecember collection still available in the shop. The second page uses Sahlin Studio Making Spirits Bright collection.

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

I added a transparency from Ali Edwards here, with a couple of the Snow & Cocoa snowflakes attached. I also reprinted the photo template with this year’s tree!

Larkindecember | December Daily 2017 Days 22-25

The last few pages are of us opening presents and I tell the stories of how it seemed that everyone got something that was fur this year, and how several who shall remain unnamed got aggressive with opening their presents! All in good fun! Product from Sahlin Studio and Larkindesign.

On the very last page I included my own photo and a reflection once again that, while all the fun and excitement is over, the best remains, which is joy, peace, laughter, and love. Thank you all so MUCH for joining me on this journey! I will return for a full walk through video in a few days, so look for that!
