HI!!!! I'm baaaack!
I have a quick post of my December Daily cover and reason page.
If you've never heard of December Daily then you're probably not alone. It was started by the incredible Ali Edwards. The gist of it is you record what's happening in December each day. A very quick and easy layout about the day. It can be holiday related or just about life in general during December or your life at that point.
The big deal about it is you record your life. It doesn't have to be fancy and it doesn't have to take hours. You just have to record it. So...just do it. Grab an album, some holiday themed papers and embellishments and some pictures and go to town.
Write down your stories. Don't be afraid. Just do it. Don't worry that it isn't enough. Just you writing it down is enough. In 10 years nobody is going to care if you used this cute embellishment or that. They'll be excited there is a picture and a story.
So do it. Document your December. :)
Yes...I'm being my bossy Type A self. Sorry...well, no, I'm not sorry. Not sorry for trying to encourage you to write down your history. I can't be sorry about that. I can be sorry about being bossy. It's the passion for my hobby that makes me this bossy. :)
Anywho, here we go! I'll try and post everyday but I can't promise this. As all of you know December is busy and sometimes I just won't be able to get to it but I can promise to post as often as I can. :)
Here is my front page!
I love it. It's bold and simple. My fav. I perused a lot of pinterest pages and facebook posts for inspiration and this is the result.
I picked a word that I wanted to focus on during December. JOY. Joy of the season. Joy on the faces of my loved ones. Joy. Joy. Joy.
I can't speak for everyone but I know that the holidays can bring upon a lot of stress. I know it can for me. I want to make sure that I focus on the happiness of the season not all the running around.
For this page I used Ali's basic December Daily Kit from 2015 (joy, & rubber sign) and 2014(2015 wood #s) and paper from the One Little Bird add-on kit. I also stamped and embossed some white stars using a couple of her kits. I'm loving the gold I decided to add to the wood numbers (2014 kit).
Next up "my reason why"
I got some inspiration from a pinterest post. I wish I could remember who it was but I loved her approach and mirrored by page to hers.
Note: It's okay to take inspiration from others or to even flat out copy what they did (unless you are making money from your creations, then it's not okay, that's plagarism). Using inspiration can save you time. You don't have to think up the entire concept. You can take something existing and work with it.
