Yet another year has come to pass and I’ve managed to add another album to my December Daily collection. Yay!
This year, I was set to:
- use up as much stash I could
- use as many supplies as I have
- keep it simple like 2014
I ended up with the foundation pages set up similar to the finished albums I made from the early years. I did have every intention of doing this album in the evenings, but with so many things suddenly happening at work and with kids’ schedule, I ended up working on some pages bit by bit.
I diligently wrote notes or journal entries in my Day One app to ensure I remember the stories of each day. I then transferred these entries and printed onto paper/cardstock which is then re-adjusted before printing and affixing onto the foundation pages.
I added a couple 12-pocket 6×8 page protectors for some days. Putting inside as many different ephemeras as I can…
I love this oversized wood veneer (my only new addition to my Christmas embellishments). I added (a very old, probably outdated) embossing glitter powder to add some texture to the ‘cheer’ wood veneer.
Playing with mini alpha stickers to fill up the page.
Finally getting a chance to use this acrylic word that comes with my Story Kit last year. I need to stop hoarding these!
And I found this little treasure – journal card – that was part of a swap from a couple years ago. I love that this happens to be made by one of my IG friends @mickeyminnieme!
Ended up adding an extra 6×8 page protector for Day 24.
And again, made use of the acrylic word from the November Story Kit.
Made use of the free printable journal card for my journaling.
And the acrylic word and chipboard sticker from the March Story Kit were the perfect embellishments to finish off this page.
Once again, this album ended up thicker than what I had anticipated. I think it was because of the chipboard dividers that was included in the album my sister gave me. Still quite happy with using up hoarded ephemera and embellishments for this album. Can’t wait to do this album again in 2016.
Thanks for reading.
