December Daily Page 5


The papers I used for Page 5 were a bit more vintagy looking so it has quite a different look to the earlier pages. Page 5 covers December 21st to 24th which is only 4 days there was plenty to fill them finishing on Christmas Eve with my darling Granddaughter sprinkling her reindeer food on the lawn! Looking at it now I may have to go back and change that second card along the bottom because the colour is glaringly out of place, not sure how I missed that! I still have to get photos printed for Christmas Day but luckily Digitalmax has a 9 c print deal until Jan 28th.

December Daily Page 4


9 Cute mini layouts and 3 journaling cards for December 16th  to 20th –  lots of writing for this page on lovely decorated journal cards.

3 Clever Tips:

  • Take a screen shot of a text conversation, especially if you don’t have a photo for that moment
  • Stamp a label or two to stick out behind a photo to write your journaling on
  • Didn’t get a photo of you baking? Then add a photo of your cup of tea and treats when you are ready to eat them!

December Daily Page 3


Here we are with Days 11-15! I used those cute little trees from Watercolor Christmas down the bottom too. These little mini layouts (pocket Page cards) are a great way to use up those scraps that often get thrown away.

A few ways I have used them:

  • punched circles and other shapes
  • banners
  • strips
  • tags
  • fussy cutting ( the church in the top right corner)

Daily in December ….. Maybe

OK this is the year! I have watched a heap of Youtube videos on December Daily and similar Christmas/December documenting projects over the last while and so this year I’m going to give it a go.

I decided to do it as a section in my usual scrapbook using pocket pages rather than a separate album as most fold seem to do. I’m trying to keep it simple and achievable. I’ve made up some “foundation pages” which I can add photos and stories straight to. The first page has a 4X6 intro card as well. Here the pages I have set up so check back over the next few weeks and see how I’m getting on with this challenge.

I have used a Designer Series Paper pack from the Seasonal Catalogue called Merry Little Christmas plus lots of leftover bits from retired Christmas packs. The two stamp sets I have used so far are Merry Mice from the Annual Catalogue and Watercolour Christmas from the Seasonal catalogue

Rebirth of the Scrapper in Daffyscrapper

It soooo long since I have done any scrapbooking. I was a scrapbooker long before I took up stamping and card making but somehow along the way I lost my scrappy mojo. I’m happy to say I have done 13 pages over the last fortnight. The first ones were painfully slow to do as I strived to regain my mojo and create a page. I’ve even had a go at a Project Life Pocket page double layout which I will share later in the week. But here for you today is this page. Nice and simple to start with : )
