|These are just a few of my favorite days (pages) so far!!
Above, I used an old piece of sheet music, misted it with Caramel Apple Mist, to make it look even older. As a result, the edges always roll up from being damp. I love that effect!!! The Santa is a gift tag. He fit perfectly with the theme of my December Daily.
On day 3, the Santa is a 3D sticker that I placed inside a frame that I cut using my Cricut Expression.
If you aren’t familiar with a December Daily, let me explain! It is a Scrapbook/Journal made PRIOR to December. The idea was created by Ali Edwards (she is amazing!). You pre-make a page for each day of December. That way, when the holidays are underway, and you are stressed by the hustle & bustle, it will be much easier to simply insert a picture from that day, or journal about it.
Last year was my first time that I participated in creating a DD. I made one mistake. I tried to “scrapbook” each page ahead of time. I used titles and themes for each page. Yes, they were Christmas-themed, but it made it more difficult, because if the page was themed with “Christmas Lights” and I didn’t end up doing anything on that day of December that had anything to do with lights, then it seemed to mess up my page. In other words, I detailed it TOO much when I made the page.
SO, (if that makes sense), this year, I am attempting to remember the “less is more” theory. That way, when it comes to that particular day of December, I will be able to title the page using what fits.
If you’ve never tried it…give it a whirl! You won’t be disappointed!
