December Daily – Days 21 – 31

December Daily 2013

 

It is more than time to wrap this lovely Album and say good bye to Christmas time.

Our tree was up until two days ago. We never left it so long but it was specially beautiful and still very green until a week ago. The kids were sad, they wanted the tree to stay but it was time to say good bye. As it was time to finally finish my December Daily Album. So, here it is:

December 25th: Our Christmas Story this year. As I wanted to write a lot I did another vellum page and typed the journaling. I did it several times in this years Album and seriously love it.

More treasures from Christmas day: the Cards that the Kids did for us, the gift tags, scraps of wrapping paper.

Here I decided to call it good and finish the Album but… I always go until the 31rd and while I was taking the Pictures of the “finished” Album with pages until December 25th I decided to write at least a Little something until the 31rd. It just did not felt “complete” to me.

So, here it is:

December 26th and 27th: We visited my husband’s family on the 26th and decided to paint the living room + kitchen. It was a last Minute decision, we just bought the Color and my husband started painting.

 

December Daily 2013

 

December 27th – 31rd: More painting and more painting. Kids doing crafts while we were working. Ready just on time for our friends to arrive to spend New Years Eve with us.

Closed the Album with a Picture from our tree.

Welcome to the days 16 – 22 of my 2013 December Daily Album. To see all the previous pages just use the menu “December Daily 2013” on the right sidebar.

Day 16 includes a drawing of my Little Girl. I had to cut it down to include in the Album but I think it is ok. It is so cute! Love the stamp that came with the Cuppa scrapbook kit.

On the 17th I decided to print a photo the same size as my book page for a different look. We haven’t had sunshine for what feels like weeks and that day the sky and the light was amazing.

It was a cold, but beautiful sunny day and I did lot of walk.

In the Spirit of making, I sew two new “Molchi” Monsters. One for the Little Girl and one for my husband’s Godson. The pattern for the sweet Monster¬† is available on Etsy.

It cracks me up that¬†my kids call their monsters¬†“Molchi”, “Molcho” and “Milchi” LOL

December Daily – Days 11 – 15

December Daily - Day 11

 

My December Daily Album is almost ready and I will keep sharing the pages as I know that lot of scrappers out there are also working on their albums.

 

December Daily - Day 11

 

A little explanation about the numbers: here in Germany we write the dates in the Format DD/MM/YY so, the December 11th, 2013 was the 11.12.13. Pretty cool ūüôā I used¬†these beautiful numbers from Basic Grey which were part of the “Rome” add on kit at Studio Calico.¬†For the next page I choice a vellum base, just felt right for me like this.
December Daily - Day 14

 

Day 12 was about finally having sent all the letters to Santa. I made a copy of the letters and tucked in this red envelope. I still have few of the Wood veneer trees on my store and they are a favorite of mine. The cute snowman stamp is Hero Arts.

On December 13th both girls won in the draw of their classes Advent calendars. I sew a pocket for their cards and added the Pictures of their gifts + Story in the next spread.

The next day I followed the Inspiration of Ali Edwards and added a list of things I am grateful for. This is something I want to do every year from now. I kept the page very simple with a doilie, a die cut amd a Wood veneer bird.

On day 15 I snapped this Picture of my oldest daughter playing the e-piano with the Little turtle “Schildo”. The Kids just love the turtles and they got a lot of personality and skills. I love their Imagination so much.

December Daily – Days 5 & 8 – 10

So I got to fill the day 5 of my December Daily Album with a Holiday-ish story.

My oldest daughter is a really good Music Player. She plays the flute like an angel and is learning to play the piano. She is so quick learning, she gets a partiture on one day and in the next days she can play it without looking in the book and without mistakes. She keeps everything in her head and it is pretty amazing.

I typed the journaling in Vellum and added a simple badge (from the Snowman set)

And I added a second Picture to day 6, showing some of the chocolate that the kids got from Nikolaus.

And them comes the pages I already shared with you, day 6 and day 7.

The Day 7 page is a clear Hambly overlay, I still have a bunch of them and love them so much! beautiful texture and adds so much for a Project.

The next page is about a new acquisition, this beautiful little tree from the Erzgebirge. It is very special and all handmade.

Day 10 is about the outer space that the Kids build under the boy’s bed. They have been playing Lego star wars like a crazy since the boy decided he wants another space ship for Christmas.

Day 5 and I already forgot to take photos. A busy day, with lots of things that did not went as planned. I’ll write about it in the Project life spread, I am not sure about what to do here in the DD Album, so lets skip it today. Keep on moving.

Day 6 and the Nikolaus was here. And in the School. And in Kindergarten. And even in the Handball practice. The Kids are Swimming in chocolate. Lucky three.

December Daily 2013

I am documenting the Holiday Season again in 2013.

This is going to be my 5th December Daily Album – you can see the previous Album using the menu on the right side.

After much thought I decided to go really simple this year. I’ve done very detailed albums with tons of pictures and journaling during the past years but in 2013 there will be a simple approach with a photo a day and just few lines of journaling. I am still doing Project life and will be working on the December spreads + December Daily this month. The PL album will hold the details and all the stories. The DD is going to be just for fun and¬†to put out with the Christmas decorations in¬†the years to come.

Dezember heißt : December Daily Zeit! Es ist bereits schon meinen 5. Dezember Daily Season und ich freue mich total!

Ich werde dieses Jahr nicht viel schreiben, da ich auch Projekt Life mache und will nicht alles doppelt haben. Dieses Album soll einfach was sch√∂nes, kleines, f√ľr die Kinder zu genie√üen.

 

December Daily 2013

 

My Album is made of chipboard, covered with vintage book pages and painted White with acrylic paint. I did it the same way as I did last year, a tutorial is already here.

I added¬†some lace, extra paper and modeling paste¬†so it has a beautiful¬†texture. I decided to go¬†white with pops of color this year. I am already loving how the looks ūüôā

 

Mein Album habe ich selbstgemacht, mit Karton, Buch-Seiten und wei√üe Acryl Farbe. Es ist eigentlich baugleich mit letztes Jahr Album, eine Anleitung daf√ľr gibt’s hier.
