Hey guys!

Long time, no see! I've taken some time away from my blog partly because I needed some time off, and partly because lots of the time it feels like not many people read blogs anymore. 

I have been working on my December Daily album throughout the month, but since I haven't finished the pages in chronological order I haven't been posting them online. I plan to be done with my album within a week or so, and the pages will go up here on my blog during that time as well. I've scheduled pages 6-10 for tomorrow, so come on back Wednesday for some more inspiration!

My intro pages aren't finished yet so I'll be sharing them later in the week. Here is my first spread using a template from the December You Are My Fave mini album kit from Paislee Press. The "December" digi stamp comes from the same kit. The acetate word is from Studio Calico's November documenter kit. All other products come from my stash.

The second spread tells the story of the annual Swedish Christmas TV show known as the "Julkalender", or Christmas Calendar". It's been running every year since 1960! I used another template from the Paislee Press December Album kit to document me and my husbands favorite "julkalender" from when we were kids, and the right side is about the kids' favorite julkalender which is the current one. The printables are from the December Magic digital card kit by One Little Bird. The antlers are from a stamp set sold by Studio Calico last year, and all other products are from my stash.

The printables on the spread of day 3 is from the Wonder set by One Little Bird. I layered some text over the pine star and then printed it on kraft paper. I love the result! The filler page on the left is also printed on kraft paper and is another page from the Paislee Press December album kit.

There haven't been much of this kind of weather this December, which is what my journaling for day 4 is all about. It's been way too warm for my taste! Let it snow digi stamp is from the Merrier kit by Paislee Press. The woodgrain journaling card comes in the Wonder set by One Little Bird. I layered a white rectangle and text over the woodgrain. The other two cards and the banner are cut from a patterned paper by Crate Paper.

I've had lots of fun with my nails this December and day five has my two favorite designs and no journaling. Cards from the December documenter kit by Studio Calico. I used a circle punch on the Santa sticker from this set by Studio Calico. 

Welcome back tomorrow to see the next five pages of my album!



  1. Keeping a bog is much like keeping a diary/journal; mostly one writes for one's own need and pleasure of it. People still read blog ... though it's getting increasingly harder to find time to leave meaningful comments ... Happy New Year to you!

    1. Yes, that's true. Happy New Year to you as well!

  2. Hello

    1. Hi and sorry for the late answer! It's an American Crafts thicker that came in a SC kit in December many years ago. Thank you for visiting my blog!
