We're thrilled to welcome December Daily® Creative Team member Ashley Horton! Today, Ashley will be sharing a few of the amazing foundation pages she's put together for this year's album.
This is my second year doing Foundation Pages for my December Daily album. I loved it last year, because I found that it makes my process so much simpler, once I start documenting my photos on December 1st. Today, I'm sharing some of the pages I've worked on to go in my 2021 album.
One of my favorite products from this year's release is the fun Canvas Pockets. I spent a lot of time thinking about how I wanted to use them, and I came up with a fun idea to document some of the days that we will be out of town during December. I took two of the two tag pockets and one of the full size pockets and overlapped them, so I could stitch them together on my sewing machine. Then I used this year's number stamp and inks to stamp the coordinating numbers on each pocket. The tags inside the pockets will be perfect for adding a photo and my journaling.
Last year, we started the tradition of picking out an ornament for each one of us. I knew this 10x8 grid paper would be a great way to document those photos. I used the Window Cards in some of the squares, and placed each of our initials on the front of it. On the inside I can add the name of the ornament that each of us chose.
When I was thinking about how I wanted to document the ceramic tree that belonged to my grandparents, I decided to tell the story from the past, present and future perspective. I used a mix of the 10x8 papers to create pockets and cut the words "past", "present" and "future" on my Cameo. I attached each of the words to the top of the pockets. Then I printed one of the large digital tags, so I could have three of them to place in each pocket, so I could add my journaling to the back of each one.
I always love to include a page about our favorite Christmas movies in my December Daily. This year, I loved the transparent photo strips and thought they would be perfect for a movie themed page. I love that Ali and I had the same idea for this product! We both put it together with one of the 4x8 papers and stitched the photo strips together, to create our full sized page.
I hope you've found some inspiration for your pages, this year!
