2013 December Daily: Week 2

Happy Tuesday! I usually post my completed Project Life layouts during this time, but since I've opted out of doing PL this month, I'm sharing my December Daily. This year I carried on my love for Project Life with a pocket style album ;)

Today I'll be sharing Week 2 of my December Daily, but here is Week 1 in case you missed it. I also have my 2012 DD here on my blog if you're looking for more inspiration!

Now onto Days 7 - 13....

2013 DD: Day 7 - Netflix

For this page I used a December calendar card and printable journal card from my DD collection. I thought "outside the box" and chose not use a photograph. Instead I added a snippet of our instant queue on Netflix, captured on our laptop. Those same everyday life moments that I love documenting in Project Life, had to be applied to my December Daily, too :) The only embellishment I added to this layout is the daily number tag.

2013 DD: Day - Pinspired [Left Page]

I mixed up my cards a bit for the left page. First is a handmade card using holiday paper from Studio Calico. It holds a wallet-size instagram photo of one of my favorite handmade decorations inspired by Pinterest. Next is a fun free printable from my Project Life stash. It may not be Christmas themed, but the colors and design works perfectly here! Last is a red Pebbles inc. journal card for the day's details.

2013 DD: Day 8 - Where We Stand [Right Page]

I made Day 8 two pages because I thought I would have more photos specifically for my "Pinspired Crafts." Instead, a day of running errands gave me a great photo op with my daughter. I loved the pic so much that I had to include it to our December Daily! The 4x4 instagram photo fits perfectly into the theme of the foundation pages. For the long, slender pocket on the left, I added some tall birch tree cardstock stickers from "Winter Wonderland" by TPC Studio. It looks great with the outdoorsy photo titled "Where We Stand" and the Christmas bird image on the 4x4 filler card. I used more Studio Calico and other holiday paper to create the cards on this page. The daily number tag completes it.

"Special Delivery"
2013 DD: Day 9 - Special Delivery

For the cards on this page I used some fun holiday cardstock that was gifted to me by a friend. One holds a 4x4 instapic of our batch of addressed Christmas cards. The other has the daily number tag and a printable banner from my collection. I made the 4x4 journaling card using Kraft cardstock and my favorite pens. For the silver frame around the card I used a metallic paint marker, and for the journaling I used my white gel pen.

DAY 10
"A Warm Drink"
2013 DD: Day 10 - A Warm Drink

First I have a printable filler card, followed by a handmade card using more Studio Calico holiday paper. It holds a wallet-size instagram photo of my eco-cup of hot chocolate sitting next to my DD and Filofax. To embellish that card, I used the daily number tag, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, and cardstock stickers by Cosmo Cricket. For the journal card I have another free printable that I mounted onto Kraft cardstock. Green argyle tape layered with narrow red washi adds the finishing touch.

DAY 11
2013 DD: Day 11 - Create

This is probably my favorite layout from the week... mostly because of the pink! I used another printable freebie for my journaling, and made the next card with pretty pink Recollections holiday paper and a Heidi Swapp printable element. I have even more pink in the 4x6 card made from textured cardstock by Bazzill. It holds a couple of wallet-size instagram photos capturing our "Art Day." I embellished it with a "Sleigh Ride" brad by Crate Paper and a large sequin that came with last year's Studio Calico DD Kit. I also used glittery "Sunrise" thickers, and finished the card with a daily number tag.

DAY 12
"Hello Santa"
2013 DD: Day 12 - Hello Santa

I mixed up the cards a bit here, too. First I have a handmade card using Studio Calico holiday paper. It has a wallet-size photo of our daughter with Santa, that I edited in instagram. The only embellishments I added was the daily number tag, and a wooden silver heart that a friend gave me last Christmas. Next is a quote that I printed on Kraft cardstock. I used a red Pebbles inc. journal card to document the details.

DAY 13
"From Grandma"
2013 DD: Day 13 - From Grandma

For the first card I have a freebie that I backed with Kraft cardstock. Following that is a handmade card using more Studio Calico holiday paper. It holds another wallet-size instagram photo of a lovely care package sent to us by my Grandma. I also added some gold and white Dear Lizzy alphabet stickers and the daily number tag. Lastly, I have a printable journal card that was a bit on the small size, so I mounted it onto some Christmas cardstock by Recollections.
