Today I’m sharing some pages from my December Daily album for 2016. This year I was able to work on the album here and there in order to complete it on New Year’s day. That’s a first for me. While it’s called a December Daily album (inspired by Ali Edwards), my approach this year was to document 31 stories or memories for the month, no matter the day. They aren’t in any particular order either. I added them how things happened or when I was inspired to capture the story.
Using the December Daily kit from Ali Edwards this year gave me a good start on organizing my album structure. I did not set up base pages like many crafter’s do for this project. I like having the freedom to go with ideas of the moment. This might mean using cards that come in the mail, pieces of ribbon or tags, or in the case of this first day spread, a page from a magazine that makes a nice backdrop (the poinsettia page). I created the short page for the Day 1 number by combining vintage stamps and seals I have in my stash.
I put an accent page or two in the album as well, like this stitched tree and the 2×2 pocket page with different elements.
