December album (progress)

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I love Ali Edwards’ December Daily project and I love making the holiday season *special* by giving it its own album.

My December album is only barely started, but I thought you might like to see the so-far progress.

Just a reminder, I am NOT doing a daily album. My husband and I barely saw each other in December, we didn’t even put up any decorations at all. We didn’t even watch any Christmas movies until December 23, so the *daily* aspect wasn’t really working.

“Title” page. Notice that I’m still missing a family photo. I have a big order of photos to order this weekend to fill in these gaps.

The 2014 I made pretty easily in Photoshop. It’s the Tw Cen MT Ultra typeface that is in my Lemon and Raspberry logo.

December  007

First spread will be about #HPDec (I still need to add the journaling). I *love* this new edition of HP books and I love these photos and I love Kristin’s HP journaling cards!

Harry Potter + Mint M&Ms is basically the best way to begin the holiday season.

December  008

Next spread will include a 4×6 journaling card (not yet there) about our lack-of-holiday decor. We pulled it all out on November 28, and put the wreath on the front door (next photo) …. and that is literally it. I want to write all about it so I gave myself plenty of room.

The photo of the tinsely trees (with Fang smelling them) is a 5×7 with holes punched directly in it. No page protectors.

December  009

The picture of our front door is (again) the only holiday decor we put up.

I’m going to add a little bit of journaling on top of the other photos — the top 2 of lovely fall-ish leaves, the bottom 4×6 is of my husband’s recording studio which *officially* opened for clients in December. (yea, he’s kind of amazing. I’m so proud)

December  010

This next spread is …. I’m not 100% sure what I want to put in these 3×4 pockets, but I do love the coffee stamp from Kellie Stamps. The 4×6 photos are from a weekday morning when I went with my mother-in-law to help her pick out her Christmas tree. Family tradition.

December  011

This is the next spread…. the left side is mostly set (without journaling), but more photos and journaling will likely go before the right side (with the card numbered 13).

Number stamps, “watching” stamp and gold ink are from rukristin papercrafts. Washi tape is Freckled Fawn.

December  012

I’ve got much more to add — a Starbucks sleeve that you can probably see peaking out, a receipt from my husband’s work Christmas party, holiday cards, wrapping paper and some other stuff.

I’m hoping to get the rest of the book finished in the next couple weeks (I’ll take it through December 29 when we got to see Andrew’s brother from Chicago).

If you’re interested, you can check out this earlier post for more supplies and links.

I’d love to see a link to your December album, if you want to leave a link!
