December Daily {2015} Days 21-25

Well, it's still winter and our temperatures are letting us know it, so I hope you'll be okay with me sharing two more posts about my 2015 December Daily.

Like I mentioned in my last DD post, I moved towards simpler pages, but I was still enjoying creating my own elements in Photoshop Elements and varying my pocket pages. For the 21st, I added type to my photo and then printed it on white cardstock. Not needing a full 6x8 to accompany my picture, I cut down a pocket page in order to have a 3x8 page.

On the 22nd, our monthly Sister Date was extra special since my sister was home to join us. I used a few more large gold chipboard letters, but since there is only one of each letter, I'll have to find creative ways to use the rest up.

Work returned to normal on the 23rd now that my travels were over.

On the 24th I baked some holiday cookies and had my sister help me with the decorating. I joked that everything was snow covered because we filled the tops of all the sugar cookies with white glacé icing.

The 25th was a quiet Christmas day for us with a delicious dinner at my parent's house.

I'll be back next week with my last DD post and then I can share a new project for 2016 that helped motivate me to get this mini alum completed. Hope you have a fantastic weekend ahead!

  1. I was just thinking how I really need to get my DD done. I just don't seem to have time coming up hopefully soon after. I love your dates and how you make your own embellishments in PS. You are so talented Elise. Your pages look great!

  2. Looking gooood!! Love the sequins in the bottom there & I REALLY Like the idea of cutting down the pages if you want/can:) AND thanks for your kind comments on mine...but I still like yours better!!! Giggles:):)

  3. Hi Elise, your album is lovely, I truly enjoyed "paging" thru it with you. Your photos are amazing, as well as your choices for embellishments, cards, and patterned paper. Love that wood type one especially. You're a favorite crafter of mine, so it's kinda cool to see these little glimpses of life. Michelle t ps...looking forward to hearing about your new project. I'm sure it's super inspiring, like you are.

  4. I love how all of your pages turn out.
    I especially love the Home for the Holiday's page...looks like it should be in a magazine..beautiful.

  5. Well done! I never even though about cutting a 6x8 page in half! That's brilliant and I will keep that idea in mind ;)


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