I made my base pages for my December album a few weeks ago. I made the base pages so that each day it will take less time to get the stories down. This morning I finally took time to sit down and quickly make my first couple pages for the first few days of December. I am only telling one or two stories for each day. Probably one. Maybe more if I have more. I’m kind on a picture taking lull (sometimes that happens and I don’t pick up my camera much for various reasons. Uninspired, feeling self conscious about over sharing, just plain busy, etc) so i don’t have a ton of pictures from the first few days. But I have enough to tell one story each day and that is all that I am wanting. More is okay too.

I only added one picture (that is from Instagram) and a small piece of cute green glitter washi tape. The rest was all done ahead of time.

Supplies: Wooden Letter 1 : Studio Calico; Washi Tape: Willow Washi; 4×6 Grid Card: Becky Higgins; Patterned Paper: DCWV & 3-D sticker both from Michael’s;


I added journalling into the Studio Calico card and then the two pictures of the kids enjoying the pancakes.

Added in a page about the advent calendar I went with this year. A simple one of lunch bags with these tags from my friend Rebecca printed off and taped on the front. Then a page with the the kids biggest wishes. I obviously guessed for Norah! 🙂
