My December Daily album - so far!

I have been asked to upload some pictures of my December Daily album so I can share what I have created to date. For those of you who are not aware, December Daily is a project inspired by Ali Edwards and each year she creates her own album with daily photos of life during the lead up to Christmas. I loved the idea of focussing on a whole month and December has such great opportunities for capturing memories that this year I decided to take the plunge and create my own album.
As I knew this would be a big undertaking, I decided against making the actual album - life really is too short when there are perfectly acceptable A5 lever arch folders available for just over £1 at my local stationers! I made each page 6" x 8" and then changed up some days with envelope pages, pocket pages and tags. I spent a few evenings putting together all of the base pages for the whole month so now all I have to do is print off a few photos and journal for each day. I won't lie, it did take quite some time to put the pages together and I totally get why Ali encourages everyone to start their albums early!! But once I was on a roll I was loving it and now the album is done doing the daily update is a piece of cake. I'm 1/3rd of the way through the album already and it is bulging (which is totally fine by me as I'm a 'more is more' kind of scrapbooker!!), I think I'll just have to look out for a cool vintage belt I can cut apart to create a closure!
If you want to learn a bit more about Ali Edwards' December Daily then check out her blog at where you'll find her daily albumpics and more. Anyways, I'm off to take more pics......!!
