As usual, I have fallen behind with my December Daily. No surprise there.

Luckily, I’ve learned over the years that if I write down the highlights + corresponding photos for each day, I can catch up in no time at all! So here’s a spread from what I completed this afternoon:

LEFT PAGE // I used a journaling card from Kelly’s kit (which my good friend Sarah designed!), a ledger paper from one of Jamaica’s Duly Noted installments, and washi tape from Freckled Fawn. The floral paper is (I think) by Heidi Swapp + I am obsessed with that shade of yellow! If you haven’t already guessed, I am a big believer in making the holidays whatever colors you enjoy! No need to go red + green all the time (unless, of course, that’s your thing!).

RIGHT PAGE // I used a large glassine envelope that I received as the packaging for a gift bag from Urbanic (but you can always find more here). Originally, I was just going to leave the bag as is, but then I decided to place a sheet of hot pink cardstock inside the envelope to give it a little bit more visual interest. (You know I had to sneak some neon in there!) The awesome hexagon overlay behind my photo is from Life Love Paper and the date stamp is from Oh Hello Friend – both ladies run equally fantastic shops! I also used these Amy Tangerine Thickers and my most favorite pen of all time (seriously). Sidenote: To make sure the date stamp didn’t smudge, I used my trusty StazOn black ink pad and let it dry for a few minutes longer than I would have with regular paper. So far, so good.

I have to say, it’s pages like these that make me want to return to this hobby over + over again. I love being able to repurpose things (such as the glassine bag) + find new ways to document my life. Cue the happy scrapbooking feelings…

How are you guys doing? Are you staying up to date or are you falling behind like me?

    I’m so far behind but that’s just how I roll. Except I’ve somehow miraculously managed to keep up-to-date with Project Life. Not that I didn’t have some weekends holed up in my office for 8+ hours catching up. Love the “non-traditional” colors you are using.

      keeping up with project life is HUGE! i totally fell off the bandwagon in the middle of the year, but i’m thinking about giving it another shot in 2013 (;
