December Daily, some foundation pages…..

Hi there!!

Well, today I am here to share with you some of my foundation pages for our 2nd December Daily album using mostly supplies from the main, red add on and teal add on kits from Michelle over at The Stamp Spot. Michelle is slowing introducing all of her Documenting December DT members and my shares are also up for today over on the store blog! 

For a more in depth view of all my goodies head on over here to see my stash!

But without further ado here are the few pages I have prepped in advance.

I will add before I share photos however that I have not done a great deal of sticking etc as I really don’t know what each day is going to entail! I have had a brain storm this morning for a few more pages however and hope to get to these this week! 

I plan on finding a story each day and documenting that. Not all will be Christmas specific. Real life still happens and as a Project Lifer I try to keep it honest and tell the stories that happen. Things like the last day at 3 year old Kindy, a friend’s child’s birthday and a couple of girl’s nights out appeared in our DD last year and I plan to stay true to that same idea this year.

Enough of my blabbering now though and onto the paper and pretty things!!

First up, an overview of what our DD will look like:


I sat with my diary, my album, post it notes and couple of pens one night and got a very rough idea of what was happening and when. Obviously, the backs of each page will be the following day. I know I can work with that system because that is how I PL 😉


This is our day one spread. On the left will be a 6×8 photo I think of our tree, one of my most fave things about Christmas!! And that little card will get attached somewhere on top of the photo. A filler (love this from the kit!!), a spot for journalling and 2 photo’s. Pretty sure one of those photo’s will be the return of our Elf on the Shelf, Pixie.


Obviously, our day 3 😉 I have yet to attach the 3×4 card to the vellum, thinking I will stitch it on with teal thread but will wait until I decide what I will do with day 4. Either a collage of 2 portrait pics (if our cards this year are that way oriented) or an actual card if they are landscape.


Possibly our day 8…. The number is not stuck down as yet. This and the back and front of a full 6×8 page will be dedicated to our Santa photo’s this year. I love Santa, the magic of believing and seeing (hopefully!!) my boys face’s light up when they see him. The white card is for journalling, the filler and hopefully a 6×4 of either both boys with Santa or maybe even me with Santa 😉 Never too old for a photo with the big guy in red!! The 6×8 page will be my big guy on the front and my little guy on the back. Possibly full 6×8 photo’s, possibly mini layouts….


Again, number is not stuck down!! This page will be used for Letter to Santa. A nice big bag attached to the back of the page will fit in photo copied letters to Santa (I copied our letters last year and so love them!!) and printed on matte photo paper. I have teamed this with a Simple Stories 4×4 page protector for either 2 photo’s (more than likely!) or photo’s and journalling.



Last and by all means not least I have put this little 3×4 card together for the day we will head out to see our local light spectacular that we discovered last year. Can’t wait!!

Well, that is it for me! I am hoping to keep up this year and get something done every day and if you embarking on your own DD journey enjoy it 🙂
