December Daily 2019


Sneaking this post in before the holiday season officially begins! I think last year was the first time I didn't blog about my December Daily album (an annual project by Ali Edwards that I've been participating in since 2010) as the month progressed. Honestly, it was nice to not have the added work/self-induced stress of photographing, editing, and writing blog posts throughout an already busy month. I'm really in awe of people who do so, especially those who do process videos! I did share lots of December Daily updates on my instagram (all my DD posts can be found under the #gsydecemberdaily hashtag) and this is probably something I'll be doing again this holiday season - more IG posts and less blogging.

I actually finished my 2019 December Daily album in January of this year. It's one of my favorite albums I've completed, so I wanted to share a round-up of my favorite pages. Flipping through this album, some of the things I've particularly enjoyed were:
  • Making sure I used old supplies from my stash along with new stuff. It was fun to go through my supplies before December and rediscover old stuff that would work perfectly for my album.
  • Mixing up page protectors and pages outside of pockets. I still love my pocket pages, but it was fun to do some things outside of pockets as well. I also continue to enjoy mixing up page sizes so that there are different layers in my album.
  • Having the opportunity to get extra creative in this album. When I work on travel albums and Project Life, my focus is more on photos + words + ephemera, but I really enjoy experimenting and getting crafty in my December Daily!
Last year, I used a mix of Crate Paper, the Jolly and Joyful kit I designed for Feed Your Craft (digitals available here), my own printables, and supplies from my stash. If you have any particular questions, just leave a comment down below! :)

My title page was a combination of a 2019 cut file I made and adhered on a 3x8 transparency and a green screen-printed wrapping paper from a local stationery shop.


DD2019 was my 10th December Daily! I wrote a bit about that milestone on this large tag and printed out one of my TN sized printables on a full sheet of vellum for the right side.

I decided to create a customized tag to hold the story of our tree. To add a bit of texture to it, I handstitched a vellum tree to the middle of the tag and I love how that turned out.


This is an example of one of my favorite "outside of the page protector" pages. I found this gold foiled chipboard frame (from a past Crate Paper collection) in my stash and used it on a sheet of patterned vellum.
 
On the back side, I used a black polaroid frame from my stash. This is actually a true polaroid frame but the polaroid photo didn't develop properly, so instead of wasting the polaroid and throwing it away, I cut out the picture and just used the frame with a digital photo I printed out myself.

I documented my holiday playlist last year with a page protector that has the 2" pockets. It was easy to print out little photos of the album covers and slip them in the pockets, and overall it makes for a really bold and graphic page.

This is the other side of that 2" page protector...lots of little photos to document a holiday lights event. I printed another one of my 3x8 printables on vellum and I love the translucent effect. 


This is another example of how I used the 2" page protector pockets. I cut off the last column and I used these 2" pockets to document my holiday watch list. I alternated photos + journaling and used an arrow stamp to indicate which pockets went together as well as a date stamp for noting down when I watched the movie.

I made this custom page protector to house little tags and I love how it turned out. I used a mix of kraft paper and Crate Paper's Snowfall patterned papers for the tags and I printed little photos of details around the house.


The backside of this custom page protector includes more tags (kraft paper + ones from Rifle Paper Co) and photos + journaling. This is definitely one of my favorite pages in my album :)

Very happy when I get a chance to enlarge a favorite photo! I also added an old letterpressed polar bear postcard to match my polar bear ornament photo in the bottom right corner, and there's some extra journaling on the back of that postcard.

Last year, we went on a short family trip to Portland and I was incredibly inspired by Ali Edwards' New York traveler's notebook from a few years ago so I scraplifted her idea. I made my own pocket to hold the traveler's notebook and thankfully it didn't add too much bulk to my album.

My cover of my homemade TN is from a sheet of wrapping paper I picked up in PDX. Added a couple of stamps + stickers + washi tape and called it good :)

Inside the journal, I followed a simple format with a daily summary on the left and six photos from the day on the right. Here are two pages from inside the notebook.


I also lifted Ali's idea at the back of her traveler's notebook and I made a grid to house bits of ephemera for the left side and wrote some thoughts on the trip for the right side.

At the end of my album is one of the patterned papers I designed for Feed Your Craft as well as some extra bits of ephemera and paper I saved throughout the month.

My 2019 December Daily ended up being filled to the brim but I was able to fit everything into one album! 

Hope you enjoyed the little recap and thank you for sticking around! Will you be doing December Daily this year? I'm excited to tackle this project again and I'm using the 6x8 format this year. Happy December, everyone!

  14. Life has not been easy with me after my marriage was broken when my husband filled for a divorced but I thank God for using LORD ZAKUZA who's like a God on Earth to get my broken marriage restored with his powerful spell.

I adhered to every bit of instructions given to me by LORD ZAKUZA for he promised me that he will make me happy and proud and really, all that happened and my husband came back to me with his knees on the ground begging me for forgiveness within 48 hours after I got in touch with him and now we are perfectly bonded again for life. I can boldly say to everyone out there that LORD ZAKUZA spells is really the best and most powerful. I'm forever grateful to him till the end of time.
