Hi Guys. Thought I’d interrupt my usual weekly layouts with a project I am working on this year. December Daily is a concept created by the amazing Ali Edwards and I have tried to do one of these before but this year I WILL succeed.
Why am I doing December Daily? Well I find Christmas is always VERY full of activities for us and I am not a fan of filling my regular project Life album with hundreds (I know I will take many) of only Christmas related photos. I really like this years December Daily kit from Studio Calico because it is like a small project life album but with extra pretties.
How do I plan to achieve this when I have failed in the past? Well I have followed Ali’s advice and setup some VERY basic foundation pages so that the process of putting it together during December is not too overwhelming, my colour palette is set and so are some of the embellishments. Is till plan to do a little more than just “slip in the photos” but like this I already know where I am headed with that. So I thought it would be nice to share some of my foundation pages so you can see what I mean. Super quick and simple and ‘mostly’ using just the Studio Calico December Daily kit, Ali Edwards Silhouette cuts and bits I already had. I am also sticking to some of Alis design details that she has used in her album this year just to get it done. I have left all the image links in this time so you should be able to click and get a bigger view if you need.
Just a little heads up this post is rather image heavy but there is writing throughout and at the bottom. Hope you don’t mind x
So, what will I fill these pages with? Photos that I intend to take daily during the month of December. I have started a rough list of our usual traditions and things we do in the lead up. Not quite 25 but I know the rest will come. Oh and the list is not beautiful. It’s a REALLY rough scribble as you can see but, it’s a good start….
I still have plenty of kit goodies left. This is after putting the foundation pages together.
So I’ll be posting progress updates throughout December. It’ll be my way of making sure it gets done. You know, now that it’s out there? and you all know I’m doing it….
Hope you enjoyed this post for a change.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks For Dropping In
