Hi everyone! I'm here today with my first full reveal of some of the stuff I've been working on for my first ever, December Daily! Today's spread is one of 3 introduction spreads that I hope to keep a tradition in my future December Daily's. I wanted to interview my kids each year to see how their thoughts, views, handwriting, and tastes change through the years as I begin the tradition of keeping track each December.
For this spread, I used American Crafts, Hollyday along with a few elements from Chap. The color theme of my DD is red, white, cream, silver, grey, kraft and black. These are also the colors that I prefer to decorate my home with for the holidays, so it seamed the natural progression to do the same for my very first December Daily!
I absolutely LOVE the reds silvers and greys in this collection. With the splashes of glitter here and there it is just perfection for the holidays. I really love how these came together. The only thing missing?
I need to get a couple of mini candy canes to have coming out of these adorable silver vellum envelopes!! Aren't they just the cutest?! I love them!
I'm really excited about how this is coming together! I have to admit, though, after seeing so many people's "finished" bases, I was feeling a little bummed that I wasn't doing it "right". But then I got to thinking - it's not about right or wrong ways of putting it together, it's about how I'm documenting our December! I really love how Ali Edwards (the creative mind behind the first DD's) puts her daily's together - I'm just not sure if mine will come together exactly the same. We'll see!
Are you making a DD? If so, I'd love to hear your experience with them. Are you following a certain "template" or are you winging it like I am? I must be honest, the idea seemed daunting last year for me to try, but I'm so glad that I dove in head first and "made" myself do it by purchasing the Ali Edwards December Daily kit from Studio Calico, last month. I think if I hadn't I wouldn't be doing it now, and I'm already excited about what I've documented already! Later this week I'll be sharing a couple more intro spreads, and I hope you join me! It should be fun!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a super spectacular day! :D
