December Daily Prep
This is the fourth year I have participated in ‘December Daily’ style album after following Ali Edwards blog. It is my favourite time of year and I love he build up to Christmas as much as the day itself. I favour creating in a 6×8 album but there are so many different ways to document this time of year.
There are so many fantastic cut files available in the shop specifically with this type of memory keeping in mind. Lisa-Jane has expanded the sizes of the cut files this year and has some A4 and Travellers Notebook sizes available too.
I create a few foundation pages to help myself keep up to date through this busy month. So I’m here sharing Day 1 of my album and a few journal cards I’ve made.
I have cut out one of the 3×4 snowflakes cards in grey cardstock but enlarged it to 6×8. I have then painted the snowflakes with light blue Shimmerz paints to give it some sparkle. Then simply backed with a 6×8 sheet of patterned paper from the Crate Paper ‘Merry Days’ paper pad. Finished off with a wood veneer number 1.
This page contains two 3×4 photos and two 3×4 journalling cards. Both cards are old Ali Edwards ones. The first with a fussy cut decorative number from Florileges new Christmas range and the second with a word sticker and journalling about the day. I was fortunate to be on a crafty retreat on the first of December so I have documented that.
Next up is a 6×8 page that will feature further in my journal. I know that on this day I will be documenting the Light a Life service at my local hospice. I have chosen to use the Holly 3×4 card which I again enlarged to 6×8 and this time cut out of kraft cardstock. The holly leaves were then backed with painted green cardstock and red stickles used to add glittery berries. Then backed with another 6×8 sheet of patterned paper ready to add in a photo or two after the event.
Now these are two of my favourite cut files of the whole December release, how cute are those mittens! I cut them out in the 3×4 size from white card stock and simply backed with patterned paper. Simple but so effective! The final touch was to add some clear glittery stickles.
