I Finally Started December Daily 2021! Story #1: What We Love and Hate About Christmas

It’s never too late to start a holiday scrapbooking project, amiright? LOL!

Today, on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I am sharing the first story in my December Daily 2021 album, What We Love and Hate About Christmas.

This year, I am taking a slightly different approach to my DD project. Instead of focusing on my everyday life activities during the month of December, I am creating an album that features a collection of stories – current, past, random musings, experiences, and everything in between, based around the holiday season. After 8 years of doing this project, I felt that I needed a different focus; something that didn’t feel daunting or stressful.

I am not sure how many stories will be included in this year’s album, but whatever that number is, it will be enough!

Supplies Used: All of the materials I am using this year are from the Ali Edwards December Daily 2021 Main Kit along with a few add-ons from this year’s collection, and my DD stash from previous years. To see a walkthrough of the supplies I’m using, check out this recorded YouTube Livestream!

My album begins with a simple semi-circle insert, accented with layered poinsettias, an orange, cork and chipboard stars, and a December Stories charm. I usually begin my DD album with a Reason Why entry, but I decided against that for this year’s project (hence, making slight changes). Instead, I jumped right into my first story.

For the first story, I wanted to focus on including the voices of my family members in this project – my mom, daughter, and spouse. I asked them to tell me what they love and hate about the holiday season. I also took everyone’s headshots and included their ages with their journaling.
On the back of the semi-circle insert, I used a felt stitched number, a gold rimmed tag, a glitter star, and black and white twine. I love how the tag, star, and twine come together to form a charm that dangles from the felt number!

The circle insert on the right side of the spread is the perfect element for my photos! For added texture, I adhered cork circles that serve as the anchor for my title. To accent the page, I created a layered row of embellishments – felt heart, chipboard circles, small metal hearts, and cork trees.
The back of the spread features the journaling and more embellishments – heart leatherette tag and a wood veneer house complete this page!

To see this spread come together, head on over to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel. I will continue to share my December Daily project and holiday story ideas for weeks to come!

Thanks for stopping by!
