And here I am with the December Spread. Since I was very much behind on Project Life throughout the 3 months or so prior, I thought it might be fun to make an effort to do something every day for December.
Since I love Advent anyway and there is actually a lot to record around this time of year it seemed the perfect month to do it! Hence the December Daily.
On this spread I seemed to have a pretty good balance of pictures and journaling - wish that would always work out that well. The only thing that is maybe different, is the journaling behind the doily. It folds open when you pull out the card to reveal all the journaling.
As you can see I finally used up the rest of the journaling cards I made way back when. I wrote about them here.
Love it when the kiddos contribute drawings or their stories!
A cutout filler card I cut with the Silhouette.
On this next spread I have actually a lot of journaling going on, but it’s mostly hidden behind the photos. All of them pull out and either have a card type layout that folds open or have a long piece of paper taped to the back to reveal the journaling, which is then folded up accordion style.
At the bottom left I sewed a vellum pocket on the card with some silver thread. The folded up paper that tucks inside the vellum pocket, lists the gifts each of us got for Christmas!
As you can see, I’m still missing the journaling to summarize Christmas Day events. I have written a fair bit about it already in other places of the album, but I wanted this as a quick summary.
And I’m also still missing some journaling here, as well as a photograph.
And this is pretty much December, once I caught up on the two missing items and journaling the New Year’s Eve photos.
Why am I showing you unfinished spreads? Because one of my next posts will be about catching up with Project Life. From mildly behind to totally, overwhelmingly behind!Pin It
