December Daily 2014: Title Page and Day 1

I love Christmas. I skipped out on making a December Daily Album last year and I really wish I hadn't. I knew I would make one this year, even if it took me well past December to finish it. That being said, I have officially started it!
In the past I documented everything we did every day for my album. This year I wanted to be more subject based. This format makes it easy for those days we really don't do anything! 

I am going to try and keep up this year, but at the same time I don't want to rush it. There are stories I want to document and I want to be sure to take my time and get my thoughts down. I also have a 10 month old I'm keeping up with! This makes EVERYTHING a challenge!

I am using Teresa Collins Candy Cane Lane and Tinsel and Company for the album this year. I love that they can be used alone or mixed together. I am keeping the design very simple this year so that the emphasis is on the photographs and the stories. 

Title Page

I used a clear acetate sheet for the title page. I wanted it to stand out but give a glimpse of the next page as well. The wreath is a cut file from the Silhouette store. The alpha stickers are Tinsel and Company.

Day 1

For this page I used photos from our Christmas photo shoot. I wanted to dedicate a page to her 1st Christmas. The trees are actually the triangle banner stickers upside down, the center one is just paper cut larger. The writing is with a gold sharpie and the wood veneer number is from Teresa Collins Something Wonderful collection that's been embossed with gold embossing powder. 

Thanks for stopping by!
