december daily: days 4 to 7

I have a few more December Daily pages to share today. So far I'm staying caught up, but it is taking a lot of time so I'm not sure how long I can keep this up. If only I wasn't such a slow scrapper it might be easier, but it takes me forever to make every decision even when I try to keep it simple. If I get behind I will just keep going until I'm finished. I am really enjoying this project more than I ever have in years past and I think it's partly because I'm doing one day at a time instead of waiting until after December to start.

Over the weekend I downloaded some printable files from In a Creative Bubble to use in my album. I really love Geralyn Sy's style and her journal cards and embellishments go perfectly with the Ali Edwards kit and Studio Calico products that I'm using. You'll see lots of them starting with day 5. 

Day 4 includes a collage of photos from Alec that he took throughout his first semester in college. I saw one on his phone and when I asked him to send it to me, I was thrilled that he sent every one he had! He texted me the photo of a tree on campus decorated for Christmas on the 4th so I decided to make this spread all pictures from him.

The next spread covers days 5 and 6. Mason had a basketball game on the 5th so I included a photo from the game. I included a December calendar card and stamped a little star over every date he has a game in December. The next day I documented going to McDonald's for breakfast with him before his basketball practice.

Day 7 is all about the Christmas tree that we finally decorated this weekend! I used one of the overlays from the kit, and printed my tree photo to fit the 6x8 pocket.

That's all for now. I'll be back when I have a few more pages done!


  1. I love this. It's exactly the kind of album I am trying to make.

    1. Thanks so much Kate! Good luck with your album and I hope you're having fun with it. :)
