December Daily ~ Week 1

I just finished up week one of my December Daily album. Thankfully, most of the work is done so it's just a matter of choosing and printing pictures and adding embellishments for the most part. I'm *so* glad I finished this book ahead of time!

Plus, it's been raining all day ~ perfect for catching up on some scrappin' (and making Christmas cookies but I'll save that for another post!)

I added some new Stampin' Up! striped ribbon and jingle bells. It makes me happy every time I pick up the album when the bells jingle!

So here's what I've finished so far:

I redid this page because, well, I just didn't like the first one I did. Too plain. Honestly, I think I just wasn't in a creative mood when I started. I kept looking at the page and it bugged me so I just did it over. I added a little Jenni Bowlin Christmas bingo tag and put the journaling on the backside. Still haven't figured out what I'm going to do with the left side. I think I may add our Christmas card in that spot (once I finish them that is!)

Day 2 is pretty simple. I added a cute ribbon bow to the "2" tag.

Day 3 is all about our Christmas lights outside. I cut a trading card page down to size and it fits 2 mini photos perfectly.

Day 4 I added a tag for journaling

Day 5 has another Jenni Bowlin bingo card, this time a bigger one. Photos are on the backside of the card along with an additional page for photos & journaling.

Day 6 is one of my favorites ~ Making Memories snowflake vellum. *Love* it!! I kept the page simple so I didn't hide the snowflakes in the vellum.

Added another cropped trading card page for additional photos. Photos are 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".

And that's it! I'm working on Days 8,9 & 10 so I'll have that to share soon :)

Your album looks great! I'm having so much fun creating mine too. It's so neat to see how someone else's looks.

LOVE IT! I sooo wanted to do this but just ran out of time! That sounds like a good excuse right? It definitely couldn't be because I am going to sleep every night at 7:30! :)
