Aloha!! It's Hannah here with you today. Can you believe it's almost December already!! I admit I am trying to hurry and finish my last year's December Daily. It was the first year I didn't finish it. I am determined to get as much done before December starts so I can then focus on this year's December Daily.
Today I am using the Clique Kits Clique Into the Holidays Kit. This kit is perfect for documenting those precious December Memories.
I am currently working on Day 7 in my December Daily album. I am using a 4 ring album I bought in the Clique Store last year. I bought it in the spring and saved it. for many of the pockets I used the journaling 3X4 cards from the pattern papers. They are so cute. If you have little kids or love cute cuddly animals this is perfect. The 7th last year was so cold, the temperature dipped below freezing which is odd for where I live.
I used the tag and a Brr die cut to add my date on the page. In this album I am not using all the same numbers which makes it easy to use numbers that match the papers I am using for that day.
I love how by layering a few pieces you have made a homemade journaling card that matches your whole spread. Even when mixing different types of products.
I mixed patterns and used the border strips to add interest and tie the papers together. I love the hint of gold on the date sticker. I used a gold journaling pen on the other card so there was more gold throughout the spread. I really think when using pockets it helps tie them together when you use similar elements on other pockets.
I layered patterned paper and the border strip under my photo. I only added a few similar stickers and die cuts to give the photo breathing room.
I really like to keep my December Daily spread fairly simple. There are so many pages that it really doesn't need much. Like adding a brrr sticker to my weather app photo. also using a photo like this it tells the story of the day but also gives me insight for the rest of the week.
I really love the way this gold pen adds some pizzazz to my card without adding a lot of bulk.
Here is a look at the rest of my spread. Nice and simple but it still has lots of texture and color. By using my Clique into the Holidays Kit it really made it easy to put together this spread.
You could also add the Clique into the Holidays printables in your album for simple fun and easy cards. You could even add your journaling in Photoshop before printing them off.
I hope you all make sure you share your holiday scrapping in our Facebook Group. This could also give you some extra ideas for things to do in your own holiday album or layouts.
Have an Inspired Day!!!
