December Daily 2010 - days 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31

Oh man it took some motivation to get this post up.
I love Christmas. I really do. But right around this time I am so Christmas'ed out. January is also one of the busiest times for my business too, so I can always find an excuse or four not to finish this project up.

But it's done.

Hallelujah, it's done.

Here is day 24,
I think everyone needs a goofy picture of their kid in a glass ornament.

Here is day 25 - I have lots of content on this day,
This year's holiday Starbucks card and a handmade card from Roman.
This page is similar to my day 23, I had so many great pictures I put a "flap" on the first one so I could add two more,
and the journaling is hidden under a flap as well,

Here is day 26, 
Not a lot going on on this day. Planning and packing.

Here is day 27,
The journaling is a bit hard to read so I did a close-up here,
I wanted to keep the embellishments really simple so the focus would be on the pictures. It was such a beautiful drive.

Here is day 28 (with some areas blurred out to protect privacy),
If you're ever in the area, Cashmere, Washington has some great antique shopping.

Here is day 29 (also with some areas blurred out for privacy),

Here is day 30 (again with some areas blurred out to protect privacy),
We had a lot of people at my in-law's house for dinner so the kids made place cards. I made sure to take ours home to use them for the journaling on this page.

And here is day 31,
This last page is adhered to a same-size, hole punched acrylic sheet for stability.

And that is all she wrote!  Some things I learned from this year's project:

- While the acrylic sheet in the middle looked cool, it added way too much space
- I really, really like the 8x6 size
- I love December Daily

Thanks for sticking with me during this project!  I'll be doing it again next year and in the meantime I know that I'll have a project or twelve to blog about.


  1. WOW - you are one determined scrapper! I love how simple you make this look. I've wanted to start scrapbooking - but it looks so difficult with all those embellishments/stickers/numbers/letters, etc!! I'm used to just sticking photos in little plastic sleeves in a photo album (which I haven't done for 7 years since the purchase of a digital camera!) I'm looking forward to seeing your projects for 2011. Glad to have found you :)

  2. Thank you Laurie! And in my opinion, even sticking photos in plastic sleeves is scrapbooking =0)

  3. Gorgeous!! I hope I can get in gear early enough next year to do a traditional album - love the mixture of elements and depth to your pages. :)

    Oh, and thanks for the tip about the photo books. Hopefully my next one will go together easier!

  4. I found that having the pages done ahead of time was really crucial for me this year. I'm going to try and simplify things even further for next year...but we'll see how that goes lol. Thanks so much for your comment!
