I gave up on the idea of doing a daily December album long ago. I love the concept, I just have trouble sticking to the level of commitment it takes during one of the busiest times of they year! This mini takes the best of the daily documentation idea and makes it a do-able project for me.
I compiled an album of favorites - family portraits, daily activities, decorations and traditions. Not a daily account of the season, but a mish mash of what makes a Damiano family Christmas!
I started the album with my favorite holiday photo of our family from a few years ago. A clear pocket with some star confetti makes the perfect accent. I've mixed the patterns throughout the mini album alternating in between the Oh Deer and Hello Christmas collections.
A few photos from daily life and funny things that I find around the house. Here I highlighted some of my son's playthings. Something you would (hopefully) find around the holidays!
A wreath transparency page adds a nice subtle design to these pages. A view of our tree and documenting ordinary life (watching Christmas specials) is a great way to tell the story of our holidays.
If you put some forethought into where lettering is placed you can create this double layer page. On the top, the "joy" is a beautiful transparency page.
Underneath is a large photo (the same size as the transparency) with an interesting title. Layering flat stickers and an acrylic word (Christmas) gives both the photo and words a nice pop of design interest.
Remember to include photos of home decor and places you return to year after year. Here the pockets were kept simple, highlighting the photos.
All of the holiday stories will be stored in the various envelopes and pockets in the kit. I love these little pockets of goodness!
I hope you've enjoyed a peek into my "not so daily" December album. It's still a work in progress, but I'm having fun documenting all of the little and big moments in this holiday season!
