I had so much fun working on my December Daily album over the weekend. But, I always have fun starting my December Daily albums. Finishing...well, that's a whole other story.
But this year will be different. I have a game plan.
Take one photo a day.
I feel like one photo a day is pretty low maintenance. There's something to be said for setting the bar low. I know this is something I can accomplish and with so much going on this month, I would hate for this project to become a stressful experience. Plus, if I miss a day, I can always ask Ray to send me a photo he's taken. Between the two of us, we're bound to have at least one photo.
Follow a formula.
For every 2-page spread in my album, I will include at least one 6"x8" page protector. My plan is to include one full page photo and pair it with a few journal cards on the opposite page. I know this won't be possible If I have a landscape oriented photo, or if I have a small photo, so I've already started to make some 6"x8" foundation pages for these scenarios (I'll be sharing them in my next post). But for the most part, the full page photo configuration will be my go-to.
Share My progress.
Which brings me to my manifesto! For my first December Daily post, I shared my supplies, organization, and album cover. Today, I'd like to show you the layers that make up my title page/manifesto. My hope is that regularly sharing my process will help me stay on track.
Originally, I was going to have a separate title page and manifesto, but I fell in love with this beautiful script by the lovely Jen Kinkade.
I also really like how all these different layers look when you open up the album cover.
I am a receipt hoarder. So I'll definitely have ephemera to store in the handy vellum envelopes that came in the December Memories kit.
Tomorrow I'll be sharing some of the foundation pages I've already made. I'm SUPER excited about them, so I hope you'll stop by!
