December Daily :: 2011

Hello December Daily.  I welcome you with open arms.  I am more than excited about you this year — mainly because it is an important year for new family traditions.  I look forward to telling a story a day, documenting the joy and magic of the holiday season as a family of three.

Here’s a look at my foundation pages:

December Daily 01 :: Once again, I decided to follow Ali‘s simple design — a 3″ x 8.5″ transparency for each day (with some baseball card sheet protectors in the mix) and her 2011 December Daily digital overlays.  I am trying to keep it real simple this year because this sweet little boy keeps me busy.

December Daily 02 :: Love the extra large numbers in the Studio Calico kit.

December Daily 03 :: Love what Ali did with day three so I decided to do the same with the flowers from the kit.

December Daily 06 :: Joy came from an LL Bean catalog.

December Daily 10 :: Corrugated letters are from Jillibean soup.

December Daily 12 :: Borrowed this idea from Ali too.  Love the letter stamps — I got the set a long time ago — not sure who makes them but they are the perfect size for this!

December Daily 17 :: the piece of canvas came from an earlier December Daily album.  I found a strip of it in my stash and stamped the number right on it with Momento ink in black.

December Daily 20 :: I may have to switch the red star out with a blue one for Hanukkah on this day.

So far, it looks pretty plain — and simple.

I cannot wait to add photos and tell stories of our December — our first holiday season together as a family.
