looks like i’ve committed myself to another photo challenge.
ali edwards’ december daily project is one i’ve wanted to do for years but was always too busy during this special month. this year will be different. this year will be savored. this year will be documented. this year will be enjoyed.
taking a few cues from ali’s prior albums, i decided that i had a ton of supplies to grab from my stash and then made my own templates like she used last year. here is how i am prepping this album so i can just print pictures and journal about the days:
printed my daily sheets on cardstock, 2-up. cut them in half to make each page 8.5 x 5.5.
here is how each layout looks now. i can add more embellishments once i know what pics will go on this. i will also use some 8.5 x 5.5 sheet protectors and stitch them into smaller sections to fit small pics and trinkets i plan to collect. i’ll either use the big blank space on the right for pics or journaling.
the next step will be to punch all the holes and then stitch the sheet protectors.
i worked on putting them together all afternoon during marshall’s nap and in between dinner and baths and trains and a little backyard fun. kinda proud that i finished all 25 days. this means there will be no excuses for not filling this album up with pictures and words. i promise to complete this album before the end of the year. i’m pinky promising myself right now!
i nterested in documenting your december? ali has so many cool posts detailed instructions/suggestions and there’s also a flickr group to grab inspiration from.
