Day one of December Daily.
Due to commitments we were unable to maintain the tradition of putting up our tree on the 1st of December this year but there was still plenty of Christmas excitement in the air.
I didn’t want to start photos right next to my intentions. I was considering a divider but that has made my albums really thick in the past so I continued this star theme and just slipped in a complete 6×8 page with a little washi across the bottom. Simple and clean.
I delved into my old leftovers and created tis ’tis the season’ page on the flip side of the star. Next to that my photos and stories of December 1 begin.
The “tis the season” is a silhouette cut of an old Ali Edwards file I had. These boxed files are an absolute classic and a go to for me each December. I cut it out of some POW glitter paper. It’s the best glitter paper with the silhouette in my opinion.
Here I used the Ali Edwards Digital files for 2015. You can purchase these here and change colours, change size if need be. I do it using Photoshop Elements. Then just a chipboard glitter star and a little thin washi and it was complete.
The final page of day 1 is here. A little story about how my kids pull together and make sure no one misses out. I cut one of the wood veneer stars form the Ali Edwards Main kit in 2 and stuck it on. I would recommend cutting it with a craft knife or some Tim Holtz tonic scissors. I tried normal craft scissors at first and hence why the star is a little crushed. I could not bare to throw it away so I used it that way anyway. I call it “character” LOL

So, Day one is complete and ended up being 2 pages with 3 photos. Yes I am done early today. This was opportunistic for me and will not be the norm for future DD pages 🙂
