December Daily 2017 ~ Get It Done! YT Series Day Thirteen ~ Day 25 ~ Part One

Hello, hello!! So, today, after a very late night last night, I was way low on time so I got done what I could which was not a lot but it is some and I am happy I didn’t miss a day!

So, today is part one of our Christmas Day celebrations! Pretty simple yet effective page and I just LOVE that acetate <3<3<3

December Days 1, 2 and 3

Hi hi!!!

Well, it is officially the 3rd December in my little part of the world and I am officially “behind” but hey, life happens! As the title suggests, I’m bringing you days 1, 2 and 3 in one shot and voila, up to date!!

So, if you missed it, I am using the gorgeous, full to the brim Documenting December kit from The Stamp Spot. You can see my share of the kit and the start of the album over here and you can purchase the kit here.

So, since I have been really slow off the mark this year I will also share the couple of foundation pages I have put together!

First up is our cover page

I used those big gold alphas from my stash. Other than that, the “december” I stamped using one of the stamp sets available from Ali Edwards and my sewing machine everything is from the kit. LOVE this colour scheme! So pretty and NOT wintery at all!!

Also, the only other page I prepped is a “cover” page for the 25th πŸ™‚ I love how this turned out! Again, everything apart from the acetate and the sewing is from the kit. I just used a Martha Stewart border punch along the edge.

So, straight into it!

Day One – Left page

The very few embellies are all from the kit.

Day One – Right page

One of the girls that was on the DT with me very kindly shared some of the extra papers from the Ali Edwards kits she purchased so that ornament has been fussy cut from one of those. The gold thickers that spell tree and the green chippy tree and the stamping are the only bits not part of the kit. I punched the scallop circle from one of the papers and just trimmed down one of the sides of that super cute pink foiled card that Michelle included in the kit.

And both Day One pages together in the album

Day Two – A one pager πŸ™‚

I’m not sure who loves the antics of our elf Pixie more, the boys or hubby and I!!

Day Three – Another one pager πŸ™‚

The journalling sums it up – that’s the story I chose for today and I’m surprised I managed to find another Christmas story, that’s 3 in a row!!

And Day Two and Three in the album together

So, that’s it for me for today!

Planning on “being on track” from here on out but, heck, life happens and I have my tray with all my goodies ready to go on my CLEAN desk!!

Check this out, this was before (and a BIG part of WHY I hadn’t got started yet)

And after…

So, Happy December and enjoy making and recording all of those special memories that this time of year brings!




December Daily Days 1-4 with Heidi Swapp yummies!

Hello there!!

Firstly, thank you so much for taking the time to drop by and take a peek at my creation!! I think this post is going to be photo heavy too, FYI πŸ˜‰

So, as I shared a few posts ago I decided ages ago that I was going to use the Heidi Swapp Believe mini album for my DD this year – I figured if I had zero time to get anything done at least the base pages were done and all I would need to do would be add photos and journalling πŸ™‚

I gotta say, the gorgeousness of this album has made me want to play, play and play!!

Without further ado here you go with the cover:

So, I have used some bits and pieces from my stash but have also used some Believe banners, Believe ephemera and some washi (the gold – love this!!) from Freckled Fawn. I have used my own handwriting along with my silhouette and printer to do the Sweetman and used Heidi Swapp colour magic letters for the December and gorgeous gold glittery thickers for the 2013. So happy with how this turned out!!Β 

And just a close up of the bottom corner πŸ™‚

Onto the inside! I have seriously had so much fun putting this together!!

This is the 1st page you open up to and I love this pic of my little family!
We had a family shoot done pretty recently by the lovely Nadine over at Nadine Stanford PhotographyΒ and I am so happy with the shots and the way the turned out in general!

This is the 1st page after the 1st tag – another GORGEOUS pic – this time of my handsome littlest men. Thank you Nadine!! More Heidi ephemera and some paper from the 6×6 paper pad πŸ™‚

I haven’t done a heap with these 2 tags as yet. I have used my tiny attacher to attach a couple of vellum tags!
On the left hand side tag there is a little card I played with in PSE and when I went to stick it down the red was SO. BOLD. I used some scraps of vellum as a little banner flap over the top to soften it up a bit.
And here is the card in digi form πŸ™‚ The image is from Sweet Shoppe DesignsΒ from their December Daily Digi Kit and the words are Ali Edwards from one of the Christmas PSD templates found here.

Here is the transperency with some Believe banners and again that gorgeous washi from Freckled Fawn.

And our Day One πŸ™‚
All about decorating in this house. We did also have my husband’s work Christmas family day but the tree won out! I have photographed 3 balls that represented our colour scheme this year – totally inspired by Heidi’s Believe range πŸ˜‰ And also, one of my most favourite little decorations – a little Eeyore in a ball catching a snowflake on his little nose.

Day Two.
We went and saw a friend of ours who’s little boy was celebrating his 2nd birthday πŸ™‚ We also got to enjoy some of the left over cake (his party was the day before but we missed it) which both of my boys LOVED! Again, more Believe ephemera, some gold glitter thickers and also some of Heidi’s glitter buzz words, oh, and more washi!!

Day Three.
A pretty ordinary Tuesday morning here but on a drive I turned around to see my 2 favourite little guys holding hands. A-DORABLE!! I edited the pic in an app called Pic FX – turned it black and white and added the tiny heart bokeh effect. I have to say, I am in LOVE with this page!! In love! More washi and also some from Glitz designs, the tiny black hearts. Some gold and natural coloured twine, some Believe 6×6 paper and the LOVE came from Maggie Holmes Flea Market ephemera pack. The banner is a little flap and I have added some kraft coloured card under to complete my journalling.

Day Four.
We had a Kindy orientation morning for my biggest boy on this day. So my sister came over and watched Hunter for me while Jacob and I headed off to school. He had an absolute ball and he is so so so looking forward to starting Kindy next year! So, today, Believe ephemera, some vellum from my stash, a PL 3×4 journalling card, some Believe 12×12 scraps of paper and the frame is from CTMH spritzed with Heidi’s Chartreuse Colour Shine.

Oh, I forgot to mention, the day numbers (the little stars from the ephemera pack) are a perfect fit for the Epiphany tools star tool!! Love!!

Thank you for stopping by and I would love to read some of your thoughts!!

If your DD’ing this year I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am and I am planning a catch up over the next few days!!
