Howdy everyone, Layle here to share with you how I plan on documenting my December this year.
I'm using the 6x8 SN@P! Holiday Binder + lots of goodies from the Classic Christmas collection. The Holiday Binder is so great for documenting a busy month like December because it has 2" rings which provides much needed extra room for everything that happens during the month!
I'll be documenting each day of the month in December through Christmas day, inspired by Ali Edwards and her December Daily concept. This will be the 9th consecutive year I've participated and it's something I look forward to ever year. Even better, when I pull the past years' albums out for the holidays, our 2 teenage boys love looking through them!
I've learned over the years that the best way to ensure success for me - success being to make it through entire month! - is by creating the base of my album ahead of time. That way once December 1st hits, I'm ready to go. Each night (or the following day), I take a few minutes to document a memory or story from the day and add photos.
I love mixing different size pocket pages in my albums, it really helps to break things up and provides a lot of different pockets for me to add little treasures and photos from the month.
A key to my album this is year are the Classic Christmas gold foil Pocket Pieces. With numbers 1-25, it makes it really easy, and pretty!
The Classic Christmas SN@P! Pages are a fun addition to the project, like the snowman snow globe below.
One of my favorite products to use in these projecs is washi tape; here I've used it to simply cover the edge of the pocket page and then repunch the holes. Such an easy trick that really adds a pop! The candy cane stripe in this Classic Christmas Washi matches the spine on the Holiday album - gotta love that!
So there you have it, all set up and ready to go to document the season. Wish me luck! ;) If you want to follow along as I make my way through the month, adding a memory each day, Ill be sharing photos on my Instagram account here.
Wishing you & your family a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
