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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
