December Daily with Echo Park (Season's Greetings)

Hi Everyone – Today I am sharing my "December Daily" album, created using a combination of the Echo Park Season's Greetings paper and digital collections.  First of all I should tell you I had to google to find out what a December Daily was – and then when I saw some of the amazing examples online – I was totally intimidated at the thought of creating one!

What I decided to do was take a little album I had started working on (seen here) and expand it into a Daily Journal.  


December this year is going to be exceptionally busy so I have decided to just have a little space where I can write each day and easily just slot a photograph in when I take one of something special.


To expand my existing book, I created some numbers from the Season’s Greetings Alphas and Borders and added them to each page. To create additional pages I printed some journaling tags from the Season’s Greetings Element Pack.

I decided to create a few fold out pages within the book to allow for a series of photos to be added. This page with the Santa is for Christmas Eve where I hope to get some great photos of the kids leaving snacks for Santa!


At the beginning of the book I have added in a few of my favorite photos from the last couple of years to get me started and to show how the pages fold out.


I hope this shows that a December Daily album can be really simply put together. I see mine as a personal and intimate record of the month – just for me to look at and remember in the future.
Here are a few more pages ready and waiting to go!


I hope this inspires you to create an album for yourself. You can always just make a simple little book and write it it each day.
Check my post here for a tutorial on how to quickly make the journals below using scraps of scrapbook paper and regular copier paper like these shown below using Holly Jolly Christmas.

  4. Looks fantastic!!! LOVE the pattern mix! So many details too! I want to see more close ups. My DD is at a stand still- not sure where I want to go with it- design wise- the photos will be easier so maybe it should just focus on them. ;)
