I have always liked the idea of creating a December Daily mini album. I have admired all the albums posted on blogs, Facebook and Instagram. So much inspiration! I am amazed that some people actually are able to create a page each day even with the insanity of the holiday season.
This January, I printed all my Christmas photos and then found this Document December album by Heidi Swapp on clearance (such a great buy).
This is a kit that includes the album, pages, alphas and ephemera. I decided to use the photos I already printed to create a "December Not Daily" album. It was a lot of work but I feel that an album like this really captures the spirit of the season with more photos and journaling.
I think, I'm hooked! I just need to figure out how to scrap next December, daily or not. I learnt a lot about creating this type of album and hope to use this information for next year!
Note to self, take more vertical photos they fit better in an album that is approximately 6X8 inches. Always adhere your alphas even if they are stickers.
How do you guys capture your holiday memories?

Happy February! Here is a card I made for my grandmother. I used a simple box card file and just filled it up with love! Now we shall see what Canada Post thinks about this card and what my postage will be. Eek! *Update* Postage was $1.90 within Canada.
Have a "love"ly day!
