December Memories 2013 with GB

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Now that it's over it's time to start thinking about the next holiday that's right around the corner...Christmas!!!  And that means it's December Daily time again, which truly is an amazing way to document the entire month of December instead of just one day.  This will be my third year creating a DD and I did it a little differently this time.

I used Gossamer Blue's December Memories kit and was a class contributor so I had to create my base pages ahead of time.  I'm a "work around the photos" type of scrapper so that was something very new and different for me to do :)  I created my base pages back in October and now that November is almost over I'm so thankful that much of it is already complete!

Base Pages:

Since I've been doing a Project Life album this year, I've decided to keep going about it the same way for December (just the normal everyday stuff and photos for those spreads).  My December Memories album will consist of more holiday-inspired events and photos.  I don't plan on making it chronological...just documenting our month however it works out as we go along.  

As you can see, I slipped photo placeholders into some of the dividers to help me keep a visual image of each page.

I added in several kraft baggies to hold ephemera and other holiday treasures I might collect throughout the month.  I also plan on doing some extra embellishing after I place my photos in their sleeves each day.

I left an empty 6x8 sleeve in the back of my album for the holiday cards that I will receive.  They usually don't take up much space and are easier to keep track of when they are in my December Memories album.

I will be sharing my December Memories pages on my blog on Saturday or Sunday each week throughout the month so I hope you'll stop in to see how it all comes together!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
