december daily: part two.

Posted on: Tuesday, December 11, 2012

As usual, I have fallen behind with my December Daily. No surprise there.

Luckily, I’ve learned over the years that if I write down the highlights + corresponding photos for each day, I can catch up in no time at all! So here’s a spread from what I completed this afternoon:

LEFT PAGE // I used a journaling card from Kelly’s kit (which my good friend Sarah designed!), a ledger paper from one of Jamaica’s Duly Noted installments, and washi tape from Freckled Fawn. The floral paper is (I think) by Heidi Swapp + I am obsessed with that shade of yellow! If you haven’t already guessed, I am a big believer in making the holidays whatever colors you enjoy! No need to go red + green all the time (unless, of course, that’s your thing!).

RIGHT PAGE // I used a large glassine envelope that I received as the packaging for a gift bag from Urbanic (but you can always find more here). Originally, I was just going to leave the bag as is, but then I decided to place a sheet of hot pink cardstock inside the envelope to give it a little bit more visual interest. (You know I had to sneak some neon in there!) The awesome hexagon overlay behind my photo is from Life Love Paper and the date stamp is from Oh Hello Friend – both ladies run equally fantastic shops! I also used these Amy Tangerine Thickers and my most favorite pen of all time (seriously). Sidenote: To make sure the date stamp didn’t smudge, I used my trusty StazOn black ink pad and let it dry for a few minutes longer than I would have with regular paper. So far, so good.

I have to say, it’s pages like these that make me want to return to this hobby over + over again. I love being able to repurpose things (such as the glassine bag) + find new ways to document my life. Cue the happy scrapbooking feelings…

How are you guys doing? Are you staying up to date or are you falling behind like me?
