Hello Lovelies and Happy December to you all! The first of this month is always one of the best days of the year because I am so excited to begin documenting, photographing, and experiencing all the magic of this season. To inspire you today I have two layouts in my December Traveler’s Notebook! You can see the process video here.
I often read and see where artists wonder if they can include events and memories outside of December in their December Daily albums, and the answer is absolutely YES! These are two layouts I am including that happened in November. Make this project work for you and include anything you wish.
I wanted to be sure and include at least one photo of me and my husband, Alan, in the beginning pages, since we weren’t in the family photo already. These two photos were taken in early November. This page was a foundation page I had already created for Sahlin Studio, so finishing it up was a breeze.
Really all I had to do was print out my photos and add a bit of journaling. I also covered up the number, since this day isn’t going to need a number. I had a great vertical space for photos on this layout, so I placed two square photos into a canvas in Photoshop and printed them as one collage. I added very simple journaling onto the label as well.
In November we also went to see The Grinch movie, which is always a holiday favorite. It just had to be included! I had two photos, one square and one horizontal, so I placed them on the layout opposite of each other and then filled in spaces around. I took cues from The Grinch song and stamped 25s onto the right hand side for a background. I have used a journaling card from Paislee Press layered with a chipboard piece on top of a square photo. Natalie wanted to pose with her Grinch face, how cute!!
For the right side I created my title using a second number stamp set plus Studio Calico alphabet stickers. The space in between title and photo were perfect for my journaling.
Thank you so much for joining me today! Happy December to you!
