Documenting December {The Supplies}


I had to seriously contemplate whether I would do a daily December album or not. Like many, I do Project Life, so was there really a need to document December in it's own way?

Being true to my personality, I made a list, a list of various things that happen in my December that I would want to capture. And you know what? There is plenty that I want to capture and record as we count down the remainder of 2013. So I did what anyone else would do in my position, I went shopping!


I bought quite a bit of the October Afternoon {Silent Night} collection and some bits from Fancy Pants {Merry Little Christmas}. I also bought a few sheets from Heidi Swapp {Believe}, Echo Park  {'tis the Season}, and Simple Stories {December Documented} to incorporate some chalkboard elements. Lastly, October Afternoon just released {Daily Flash} and I had to get a few sheets from the Eggnog line.

I already had a green 6"x8" Sn@p! binder on hand, and while I would love to have these pages outside of protectors, I worry about them holding up over the years, so I'm going to use the full page ones. I made all of my foundation pages and this time I'll be numbering each day, so I made those as well.


The cover of my album isn't done yet and of course there will be washi tapes and sequins added to this kit. At the last minute I bought a few more October Afternoon {Silent Night} bits, because how can you pass up 50% off your order?!

How do you document your December? Share with me throughout the month because I'd love to see!

  2. Looks like you're off to a great start. I think you'll have a lot of fun with those supplies!
    I've never done a DD and I don't do PL, so I document our Dec with regular 12x12 pages.
    Have fun creating!
