December Daily {2015} Days 11-15

Things had been going so well with getting pages done in my album, but after being away for a few days and then the busyness of Christmas, I've found myself unable to make more progress. Hopefully I'll find my groove before too long, but here are the pages I completed earlier in the month.

On the 11th we took advantage of the warmer temperatures and went to the gardens to enjoy the Winter Walk of Lights.

I was fearing that I would run out of time to get Christmas cards made, but in the end it all worked out and I spent time on the 12th writing them all out and getting them in the mail. I included a card in my album and the red bag will hold the names of all of the people I sent cards to. Since there were all of these extra bits in front of my day 12 page, I decided to keep the pockets simple by only adding the large gold letters and my photo.

Still enjoying the unseasonably warm temperatures, I snapped a photo of myself for day 13. Wanting a card that was specific to the weather, I created one in Photoshop Elements with the help of fun knit design.

On the 14th I received a surprise gift from a dear friend. Because the box was so pretty, I took a picture of it and then made a pocket that flips up revealing the gift and my journaling on the underside. I used a small piece of the ribbon from the box as the tab to lift the photo.

Inspiration for day 15 came from a page I had pinned. I've definitely been loving circles lately and you'll see them on another project here shortly. ;)

I'm looking forward to continuing work on my album, but I'm not going to force it. If I can finish up by mid-January, I'll be a happy camper.

This Friday there is a big shop update with several new sets of flair designed by both Brandi and myself along with a couple other surprises. The update will take place at 8am EST and we'll be sharing projects made with the new doodle flair. See you then!

  1. I love the interactive element and how you chose to display the gift you received. I loved your Christmas card! Neat way to remember who you sent them to.

  2. I don't even know where to start because every little bit is fabulous, Elise! Loving the sweet kitty kisses page, the awesome gold foil letters and how you repurposed the ribbon from your gift. So clever and so creative! :)

  3. All of your pages are so lovely.
    Love the page with the gift and then the contents in the pull out…so creative :)

  4. That 'sweater' card you made is awesome....& Love the flip pocket too:) Good on you sticking to this. As you say, it's a busy time of year. I'm sure you'll have it all sorted by mid January!!!

  5. You are cranking out the DD, while I have been ahem avoiding them. Love the interactive gift page, very cute and creative idea and please send our warm weather back to us, I don't like the freezing temps we have been enduring!

  6. These are great! I had to put a pause on my album since we are taking advantage of time better spent with family... I'm looking forward to getting back to my desk soon though!

  7. Swooning over the kitty kisses page. Too sweet. Love all the circle elements. So glad you had some time to play with your album!
