2015 December Daily Part 2

Last week I gave you a sneak peek at some of my December Daily album pages, and today I'm going to give you the details on what I used and how it all came together.

This year, I ordered a Pink Paislee album that was designed to be used for December Daily, a Pink Paislee Yuletide 6x6 paper pad, and American Crafts Fitzgerald Thickers in glittery gold.

Because I had taken most of my December Daily pictures on my phone and posted them to Instagram (days 1-23), I simply printed out the Instagram photos I wanted through the Walgreens photo app. Then, I kept things simple to get each picture on its appropriate page.

My Xyron really came in handy for adhering smaller embellishments.
What I like about this album is that it has pre-printed pages with space for journaling and even Christmas memories prompts, such as favorite Christmas songs!

I did have to remove a page or two from the end of this album. It had enough pages for 31 days, the number of days in December, but I just didn't take pictures for every single day, especially once we got past December 27. No worries! It was very easy to do, and I made it work.

This wasn't the fastest December Daily I've ever created (I think last year's album takes the cake for that), but I'm pleased that I was able to get it finished before the end of January.

Are you still working on your December Daily album? Maybe you're a real go-getter, and you're already starting to think about your album for THIS Christmas! I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
