Hey guys! I’m here with my last December Daily 2016 post I hope you have enjoyed my DD series so far. You can find my previous blog posts on my album, title page & day 1 here, my days 2-8 here, and my days 9-17 here.
Let’s jump right in! I will list supplies at the end.
Day 18 is my obligatory Starbucks spread. I followed Ali’s day 12, and stapled a Starbucks sleeve to a 3×4 paper. I also took photos of the P family, so I stuck in a photo from that shoot as well. The “December Joys” flag on the left is an old Ali Edwards digital brush from years ago.
On Day 19, we had Ruby’s 2 month well check with shots. My poor baby! I hate when they have to get shots! I also included a 3×8 spread on the right, although it kind of blends in with the next day in the photo.
You can see the 3×8 insert in these photos. The girls wanted to hold the baby, so I put the photos of them on the left. On the right, I included stories of the girls’ and how they got to go out with friends.
Day 21 & 22:
On day 21, I talk about doing the majority of my Christmas shopping online, and the pretty wrapping paper I bought at Target. On day 22, my girls had their routine dentist appointments.
The girls decorated a gingerbread house on day 23. They decorated it all by themselves this year, with no help from me. Love this messy & fun tradition!
more day 23:
Ruby turned 2 months, so I included her 2 month photo, and journaled a bit about her on a piece of vellum. I also included a page about the pups. Ah…my heart is full!
Christmas Eve traditions for day 24 spread. We always open gifts with family on Christmas Eve, so there are normally lots of photos. I love the page protector with 12 squares because I can fit so many photos!
Christmas day magic! Santa came, my daughter lost a tooth, and all the kiddos. I bought the blue tag with the gold trees and the image of Santa from TJMaxx.
I always like to document the places our elf has been with a double page, and here is this year’s:
For my last page, I included a photo I took on New Year’s day. I really liked how it tied in the New Year. I think I might make it a new tradition and always end my album with a picture from New Year’s day.
Finally, I add photo cards and other paper memorabilia (like the program to my daughter’s holiday concert) by punching them directly and adding them to my album. I also made another pocket page to house smaller cards (like thank you cards from my girls’ teachers) and added it to the back of my album.
…and my album is finished!
Love this project!
