Phenomenon “December Daily” originates from the U.S., Naturally. But I wonder if many Danish women also have long found out how to make Christmas a diary or a book, where they collect Christmas inspiration.
See also our beautiful article about Recipe books this month.
To jeg, Marie and Didde from the creative team wanted to do anyway Dec. diaries this year, we will guide you through our journey in creating our minialbums.Dagbøgerne are different and yet with a twist of new colors and not necessarily with Christmas elves and men. It has again become fashionable to make Christmas books here and get our take on these.
We start with Marie, who have made a great mini album, and made clear siderne, one for each day in December.Marie tells:
I start to find paper, decorations, etc., I provide an atmosphere of the album I'm going to do. It is not sure I'm using right things and there will probably also more, but it is a start and inspiration.
On the front is glued a large paper doily on. Above the, a layer of red crepe, which are clipped together in one long strip and then clipped into a circle on top Doily.
Ovenpå crepe, there are even a doily, Then a glitter star actually decorations and finally a wooden star.
My Christmas album is for 1.-24. december. I do not have such high ambitions. The main thing is just that you get a tiny bit of Christmas cheer, when you look in the album. I make a list where I write down what happened each day, and so do I take my. 1. picture every day. It can be of family fun, Christmas decorations, sne, gifts, juleguf etc.
When I have time, I can still remember what happened the different days and what I want to write and put in the book.
The pages are all 15×15 cm, and I've glued them together 2 and 2. The pattern paper, but none of it is actually Christmas paper. I have kept me in red, light brown and green colors, so you get a Christmas mood yet.
I also collect stickers, garnish, stempler mv. I'm going to use for the album. Then I have it in a box, so it's ready when I just need to put today's image into.
The pictures are also a reminder of, what I've been thinking I want to use, if i can use it for something else and not get put in the box.
Didde Ifversen, our relatively new and very talented designer has also jumped on Dec. wave. Didde has been sposoreret a nice package from Love2Scrap, and several of the papers and especially Christmas decorations you can find at Love2scrap.
The album is called 30 Days of Ho h oho - it starts at 1. Sunday of Advent and ends at the third day of Christmas. I have used many different kinds of paper, gizmos and cots. I have spent a little from sponsorship package also - especially chip boards and stickers from Love2scrap. A page with a homemade overlay: transparent with frosting film for windows.
It made room for text and images. And so Didde also Christmas ready with help from Love2scrap.
My own book gets into even a glimpse into. Due to the acute lack of time, but a great desire that this year will be year, where I have documented Christmas, I cheated and bought me a fantastic December Daily, who had gathered for me. It was purchased from Evalicious.
I've even added a few pieces of paper and alphabet from Love2scrap. Color theme is so white, turquoise and with a few Christmas colors, red and green in flash.
Letters and decorations from Love2scrap.
