It’s done! I am so thrilled to have it complete and I’m happy with how it turned out. Here’s some sneak peaks of it:
It’s been rainy and cloudy here today so it’s making it hard to take good pics. Hopefully tomorrow will be sunny so I can get some fab pics 🙂
Just one more day until December! I’m super excited to get started on my December daily album. I remember last year loving it. The process that worked best for me was everyday writing down what I had done that day and what stories I wanted to share. After that I printed out my pictures. If had time that night I added them to the book otherwise I had everything ready so I could add them easily the next day.

Thank you everyone for your sweet comments about my album 🙂
Dum, dum, dum….here it is. Finally got it put together! There are a few things I need to finish up, but I still love it. (to see the pictures bigger just click on them)
It’s about 8 1/2 X 11 and I used my bind-it-all to bind it. This size worked well for me. It allowed me to add many pictures to the pages if I needed to. There are a few things I will do different next time. When I oringinally put this together I added all the numbers to the pages ahead of time. Next time I will wait until I’m making it to do that. There we days I alotted a lot of space for but didn’t need it and then other days the opposite. Next Christmas I will for sure do it again!
This week I have had some time to actually make stuff. It’s so wonderful and exciting! My list of pages and mini book ideas is about a mile long so it feels really good to get some things accomplished. But first I have to tell you about an exciting find. You know Micheal’s fabulous dollar section? They have these cute Christmas chipboard books! They had Christmas trees, Santa hats, stars, mittens, gingerbread men, angels and I think snowmen. How perfect! My plan is to make a banner with some of them. I’ll show you once I start making it.
Recently on Ali Edwards blog she was talking about her yearly project called December Daily. She makes an album ahead of time that way she can scrapbook about her day easily and quickly. She starts December 1st and goes through Christmas day (one page pre day). I thought this was a great idea and this year I am doing it. I’ve gathered my materials and started making the book.
I used an old Starbucks bag for the cover (I knew I would need it one day) and most of the pages inside are using Basic Grey Christmas papers. As I do each page in I will post it. The chipboard books would be great in it too.
This book has inspired me to keep daily notes. Not that I will scrapbook everyday of my life but I am trying to document more of the everyday and not just special occasions.
