December Daily 2014

It is that time of the year again – December, and I am just about to nag everyone about getting the cameras out from hiding. Sometimes that is the ultimate challenge:) I bet every scrapbooker wished December was in July because this month we live in the darkest time of the year. It is dark when we wake up and it is dark when we come home from work. Still we try to get some nice pics as we move through the month of December.

I don`t have much of a plan this year but I have gathered some supplies…

I fell in love with the cute gold stuff this year. Together with all the leftover reds from previous years I guess I will be alright…

I have several choices for album. I have an American Crafts – Album 12×12″ – Desktop Edition – Gold Stripe…

It was so cute that just had to own one 🙂 I have all kinds of page protectors so I can go Project Life style of make 12 x 12 pages, paper or digital.

And who could pass this cuties…

Of course this depends on how many photos I have to work with. I`m always in need of a back up plan – I have a cute red We R Memory Keepers 6 x 8 album that will be perfect if the photos coming in is few.

I don`t think I will be making the album pages every day – but just in case my desk is clean…

Looking back…

In 2008 I joined Shimelle and her Journal Your Christmas class. I made a 6 x 12 album and her input inspired a lot of journaling from my childhood Christmases. So much journaling that I don`t have more to say about that. |  The 2008 album

In 2009 I made a 9 x 6 album. This year was more about the photos because we were so lucky to have lots of snow in December and the kids were cute. Like in 2008 I made my pages every evening. | The 2009 album

In 2010 I never finished a Christmas album. My digital pages was added to the 2010 album and I made a mini album for each kid | The 2010 album

In 2011 I made a 8 x 8 album hybrid style and finished the pages almost every day. | The 2011 album

In 2012 I went hybrid again with Ali Edwards templates downsized to 8 x 8. Love this size. In 2012 I made a lot of the pages digital every day. Then printed and glued in bulks during December. This album was not finished before December 2013 but it is finished and I love it. | The 2012 album

2013 was a busy month so I blogged every day and made the album in January. Not so many photos and even less stories. Just enough for a Project Life mini album and I loved working with this format. | The 2013 album

So many Choices to be made. If you buy  Shimelle`s class you get to joined for free in the upcoming years. She will send you an email every day with a lot of content and lots of inspiring. There is also a forum to join.

You can join Ali Edwards. She also has a beautiful kit for sale.

Not up for so much “work” in December but would like to do some kind of documenting you can join Susannah Conway`s December Reflections 2014. Taking a photo every day during December.

Welcome December – let`s go…

  1. Awesome blog post Elinjane! I love all the styles of your different albums, and thanks for sharing! Looking forward to another year. The gold is stunning. I must remember to pull my PL gold page protectors into the mix, what a great idea!

    Such a great retrospective of all your journals! I’m hoping to complete my first this year, so I love looking at others who’ve completed so many years. Awesome post 🙂
