I am following the general idea of December documentation popularized by Ali Edwards and am going to try to keep it simple. I am using a 6 x 8 inch "Daily Flash" album from October Afternoon with a mix of 6 x 8 pages and pocket pages.
This is Day 1:
Here's Day 2:
As you can see, the first 2 pages are simply embellished 6 x 8 pages. Day 3 will be a pocket page and will include a journaling card.
I am purposely documenting 25 days of December but not specific dates. In other words, a particular day, such as Day 2, may or may not represent what happened on Dec. 2. Each day represents a December tradition or a part of our daily lives that month.
I have done this project only once before - in December 2011 - with a more elaborate approach. That year, I made a double-page spread for each day and I documented what really happened on that specific day. For me, being bound to a particular date made creating the album more difficult as I could not plan pages in advance.
Making a double-page spread for each date also doubled the work.
So far, I am really liking this new, streamlined approach!
