Note to Self: Planning for December Memories | Tiffany JuliaNov 24, 2020
Tiffany here with a monthly setup in my Note to Self binder using the gorgeous Coco Kit. I took the monthly calendar divider from the kit and set it up to be where I will document the month of December in my 2020 album. I've been using the lovely blush pink scalloped binder as a yearly 6x8 scrapbook. This year however, I've decided to do a fun little minibook for my December Daily. At the same time, I still want to have some December memories in my yearly album, so I thought including a little calendar of memories for the month would be the perfect way to add that in my album.
The calendar divider that comes with the Coco kit was perfect for this! So I've set it up using the Coco puffy stickers, adding the itty bitty numbers to my calendar and using the "December" puffy sticker on the side. Once I dated my calendar, I had some fun embellishing it using the baubles from the die cut pack, along with some star pieces and puffy stickers.
On the bottom right of the calendar, I covered the remaining boxes with an ombre of pink paper, which I cut from the extra paper strip that came in the paper pack. Then I embellished it with one of the labels from the kit, which I stamped "cozy memories" on to. I layered another bauble and star on top of that too. I then filled in the box for Christmas with the "Ho Ho Ho" die cut and a few puffy stars from the Brooke kit. I did the same for New Years Eve, except I used the Lola Mini Puffy Alphas to write out "New Years Eve." I finished the month off by adding a bow paperclip, which I made from the little bow that came in the assorted trim pack.
Once I had my monthly calendar prepped, I created a little 3x8 bookmark to sit in front of it in my album. I used the 3x8 cards and layered a white doily that came in the paper pack, along with the Coco girl die cut. I slipped that card into one of the 3x8 page protectors and then added a few of the gold foiled chipboard stars on top. I added a black and white striped bow from the Bailey kit, which I glued to a paperclip, at the top of the bookmark.
Lastly, I embellished the front of the swiss dot cardstock divider with the Taylor alphas and the black jumbo cardstock alphas to spell out "The last of 2020."
