Hi there and welcome to our new home right here! I’m so excited to be starting in a fresh place and I hope you enjoy the new look.
All my previous posts are still available at blogher.com, and can be found here. Feel free to browse around at my previous December albums and Project Life layouts! Also in the future I will be uploading my December albums from previous years into the gallery here.
I have been working almost obsessively (ok, really obsessively!) on my foundation pages for December Daily. This is a yearly tradition that I follow to document our December memories, a tradition created and inspired by Ali Edwards. I have been doing this project for about seven years now, and the albums I have created definitely rank as favorites in our house.
A big part of this project involves assembling and completing the foundation pages in advance, so that during the month of December you only have to add photos and journaling. This year my album was created using a set of subway numbers I found at a local shop.
The size of these subway numbers presented a few challenges in creating this album. Their size was awkward: 5 1/2″ wide by 5″ tall. Certainly not typical scrapbook sizes! I will share more on that journey later, but suffice to say this is actually my second album I’ve created and the first one did not work out (not to worry, it is being re-purposed and will be another project I will post for you soon!). But at any rate, I decided in the end that these numbers could be cut down to fit in ordinary pocket pages and so be it.
I’m so happy with how these foundation pages turned out and cannot wait for December to get here already! I completely love the kits and products I have chosen. The album itself is from Simple Stories. I am working on the video that shows how I treated that album to create what you see in these photos!
The products and kits I have chosen to use (mostly!) are as follows:
Ali Edwards December Daily Main Kit
Simple Stories Teal Chevron Burlap 6×8 Snap! Album
October Afternoon Under the Tree Collection
I hope you have enjoyed these sneak peeks into my December album as it is right now. Stay tuned for so much more fun to come – videos, how-to’s, and of course photos that I hope will inspire you to create your own! As always, please feel free to share your own December album in the Comments section. And I hope you will Subscribe via the button below so you can follow along in my creative journey.
See you soon!
