After spending quite a bit of time just staring at my December Daily album, umming and ahhing about how to begin, I finally did.
For the top half of my title page I wrote 'December is...' statements, which I printed on vellum. I cut the word 'December' on my Silhouette but hand cut the letters of 'Merry' from patterned paper, for a casual, not perfect look.
I used the Silhouette Printable Gold Foil for the 'December' and the star, which doesn't photograph well but has a lovely shine. It was my first time using it and I'm a fan.
On December 1st I went shopping in the city with my friend Nicole, an annual Christmas tradition. We queued to see the Myer Christmas windows, bought presents for myself as well as others and played the kid's Christmas activity in City Square. That's where we took our photo with Dancer. ;) It was a great day.
I had trouble deciding how to include the journaling in the top pocket, trying a few variations before I ended up with this. I don't love it, but I'll forget that soon enough.
One day done, 30 to go. ;)
