Documenting December 2014 {Days 13-18}

I've only been able to work on my December Daily album in short spurts, but as long as I have it completed by the end of January, I'll be a happy camper. I also don't mind that there will be some overlap between this album, my Project Life pages, my Adventure mini, and possibly some 12"x12" layouts. I wind up recording different details, so if there is an event or photo that is duplicated, I don't mind the redundancy.

Day 13 -hosted brunch for our parents and took selfies with mine
technique - stitched journaling boxes

Day 14 -mailed my holiday cards
technique - scraplifted this lovely layout by Allie Trumpower

Day 15 - flying to Chicago to see my sister
technique - printed my photo on a muslin bag as well as heat embossed a stamped image

Day 16 - hiking in the cold and rain
technique - mixed font, long title

Day 17 - Festival of Lights in Peoria
technique - a very apprehensive first use of Dylusions sprays and water with heat embossed images

Day 18 - a short stop at the North Pole Toledo Zoo
technique - vellum embossed and punched (thanks, Leslie for the reminder to use my embossing folders!)

***Feel free to visit my gallery if you'd like to flip through my album page by page. Last years December Daily is there as well and all relating blog posts can be found here.***


  1. The smartphone conversation with your mom made me chuckle, Elise. So cute! I love how you keep the continuity of the number banners on all of the pages, yet try different techniques. I just love how this is coming out!

  2. Such lovely pages.
    I love the North Pole page :)
    I realize that I document the same memories in different albums. I kept telling myself not to do this..but I will take your advice and not worry about it :)

  3. Love the selfies page! And I've never thought to emboss vellum... I will definitely have to try that!!

  4. Very fun pages! I love how you used different techniques throughout!

  5. Love all of your techniques! Especially the stitched conversation strips.

  6. You are plugging away nicely, I need to get crack-a-lackin on mine. I love how you are doing these pages as mini layouts, and enjoying all your various techniques.


Thank you so much for taking your time to comment, I truly appreciate all your kind words!
