December Days album 2015 - Day 18 - 24

Best wishes for the festive season to you Sassy friends!
Wishing you and your loved ones a joyful 2016.

Wrapping up for the year, I would like to share the last few days of my December Album with you.

Day 18: I've cut up a Muffin Break coffee cup and punched it to include it in my album. I love the Aussie Summer elements they have on them, like the festive Cockatoo! Over that I've stuck a Simple Stories frame, used the countdown numbers and a few other stickers and embellies.

Day 18 detail:

Day 19: An Instax Mini 8 was at the top of my Christmas list this year! Such a fun little camera and so easy to include in this size album.

I've used the positive 'love this' die cut left over from Day 9, countdown numbers and a gorgeous tree paperclip.

Our annual family Christmas party is such a fun event, there's lots to jot down! I especially kept that super cute 2x2 'party' Sn@p card aside for this spread.

Day 19 detail

Claus & Co. Bits & Pieces, stickers and Heidi Swapp word jumble stickers

 More day 19:

Fun Claus & Co. Sn@p cardsstickers and expressions stickers
Day 20: My neighbour put on a great show for all of us the other night.

To echo the firework theme, I have Minced this Christmas tag with gold sparkle foil.

More Day 20 detail: Some cute Heidi Swapp chipboard stars, Claus & Co. photo stickers and a glitter star sticker.

Day 21: My little monkey has her fist loose tooth! Very exciting.

Day 21 detail: I've included a left over Pink Paislee clear tag and underneith, popped some black alpha stickers from the Claus & Co. Expressions sticker sheet. There's also a little Claus & Co. tag and bow die cut as well as 'Ho Ho Ho' sticker.

Day 22: Christmas light fun.

 I quite like how the ampersand joined the numbers. I've machine stitched the card for some added detail.

The Santa face lifts up to reveal some journalling.

More Day 22:

As a divider, I've used this cute 4x4 Claus & Co. Sn@p card and added a little decorative edge using Heidi Swapp foil cardstock and a Fiskars edge punch.

Welcome to the bakery!

Day 23 detail: I'm imagining those are the cutest oven gloves hanging on the line ;)

Day 24: One more sleep!!

Day 24 detail: I've created another divider page using the 'Oh What Fun' 6x6 pad. Over that, I've popped a gorgeous 'Believe' die cut which has been cut with the HS glitter paper from the Foil/Glitter pad.

 The cutie pie lights are from Claus & Co. chipboard sticker pack.

It's not Christmas time in this house if we are not eating cold prawns!

 Wishing you good food, good times and many a crafty hour these holidays!

Merry Christmas

Project Life December Daily..

Project Life and December  Daily, mean very similar things to me. It's an opportunity to document the everyday events in our lives as well as those more momentous occasions. Today I want to share with you a PL2015 + DD spread that has only one photo. Yes.  That's right.  Just one photo.  And it's still only the regular 3x4" size too! This week's spread is focusing in on the stories.
To be really honest with you, I needed to step away from the demands of snapping a daily photo for the singular purpose of filling up my December pocket pages. And while I have still taken those said photos, my priority in the last week has been to my family and living the moment during this wonderful season.
If you have a schedule that is anything similar to mine, carving out some crafting therapy can often be the hardest challenge of all. And even though I haven't printed out any of my photos for the last week, I have documented the stories.
One such story is how my youngest lost his first top tooth, but then couldn't put it under his pillow for the tooth fairy because he dropped it down the bathroom plug hole while cleaning it.  He was very upset over this development and with no way to recover the tooth, I asked him to write the tooth fairy a note, explaining what had happened.
To help his letters standout on a Becky Higgins core PL card, I traced over his letters with a sharpie. This way I can stay true to his handwriting sample.
 Our Elf on the Shelf is a regular visitor at Christmastime. This year Elfvis has been adventuring rather than playing hide and seek with my younger boys. I wanted to share a few of his adventures in my PL stories.  Using a journaling Brag Cards from Fancy Pants Designs | Happy Place I've recorded some of his crazy antics.
 I've teamed up the brag cards with the cut apart patterned paper from October Afternoon. Last month I put together a series of filler cards from October Afternoon | Under the Tree, and this week I've finally added some of them to my pocket pages.
 Thanks for visiting here today.  Have a wonderful and safe Christmas - Leanne..x
