I am currently working on my foundation pages of this year's December Daily Album. I'm going with lots of black + gold + pops of color this year. I am breaking it into two parts, and sharing December 1 - 13 with you today.
My goal is to have all my foundation pages in place by December 1 so that I can simply print out a photo and/or add journaling each day until Christmas.
I just want to mention that these foundation pages are just that - something for me to start with, build upon, adjust as needed. In fact, while I am writing this post, I already see things that I would like to rearrange. Nothing here is set in stone.
Also, I'd like to add that it's easy to overthink this project.
There are so many options and inspiration is everywhere - I think that it's important to get your stories documented, in whatever form that feels right for you. At the end of the day, simply having a place to hold all of your December memories will be a gift for years to come.
I included a calendar last year, and I loved the ability to add an overview of all the activities from our month.
I designed another calendar for this December and I plan to add all of our parties/musicals/festivities so that we can look back and see what December looked like for us in 2015.
If you would like to do the same, here is a free 6x8 December 2015 free printable. I included the PDF, JPG, and PNG (in case you'd like to match the color to your own album).
Here's what December 1 - 13 looks like so far. I included product links at the end of the post.
I loved using Heidi Swapp's "You are Here" silk screen print over one of the transparencies from Ali's kit.
I am currently working on my foundation pages for December 14 - 25, which I will update soon.
You can see my December 2014 album here.
