December Daily 2014 - Days 1 and 2

The holidays are here! This year, I am documenting them with a December Daily, a mini scrapbook on how my family celebrates the holidays.

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!
