December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas Part 3

Hello. I am back to show you the last few pages of my December Daily/ Journal Your Christmas Album. Today we are going to start with Day 17 & Day 18. They each have a small pocket with a journaling tag.

For the front of each pocket I started with paper from the AC Merrymint collection. I layered a scallop circle (Wool Wausau paper & Oriental Trading punch) and a 2" circle (Fiskars punch & Becky Higgins Journaling Cards), and 2 presents cut from the Martha Stewart Gifts Deep Edge punch in Silver Wausau paper.

The tags were cut with my Slice and the Basics 1 cartridge. I also added the numbers to the bottom using the Family Treasures punches.

The pockets are also a flap that opens up to reveal a photo mat and additional space for journaling.

Days 19 and 20 are also pocket pages. Day 19 is the smaller pocket with a journaling tag (Slice and Basics 1 cartridge). The back of the pocket is lined with paper from the Merrymint collection and the front of the pocket is lined with more of the Pimiento Wausau paper. The border is punched from the Wool Wausau paper with the Uppercrest punch from Fiskars. The front is decorated with snowflakes from the Martha Stewart Nordic Snowflake punch.

The small white tag under the border was embossed with Versamark Ink, Clear embossing powder, and the Hero Arts Flourish stamp.

The journaling tag was cut with the Slice and Basics 1 cartridge and Family Treasures punches were used to add the '19th' to the bottom of the tag.

Day 20 is a taller pocket with an insert for photos and journaling. I used more of the Bo Bunny Adlib paper for the photo mat. I also added two tags to the corner (Silver Bells paper, Family Treasure punches, Slice, and Mistletoe cartridge).

Day 21 is another pocket page with two tags for journaling or small photos. I lined the back of the pocket with the Bo Bunny Adlib paper. The front is decorated with the Silver Wausau paper, Martha Stewart Skyland Snowflake Deep Edge punch, and the  word family that was cut with my Slice and the Mistletoe cartridge.

The tags were cut with my Slice and Bascis 1 cartridge. On the first tag I punched the '21st' with my Family Treasures punches and on the second one I stamped a sentiment from the Good Cheer stamp set by Ali Edwards in Aspen Mist Ink.

This pocket page is also a flap that opens to reveal the page for Day 22. I used the Pimiento Wausau paper to create a photo mat on the left side of the page.

I decorated the bottom of the page with a die cut from the Spellbinders Labels 4 dies, a 2" circle (Fiskars), and another die cut from the Spellbinders Contemporary Hearts Shapeabilities.

I made the right side of the page into a pocket to hold my journaling tags (Family Treasures punches, Silver Wausau paper, Slice, and Basics 1 cartridge).

The front of the pocket was made with the Martha Stewart Gifts Deep Edge punch. I added paper from Wausau and Echo Park, punched snowflakes, and a sentiment from the Hero Arts Holiday Sayings stamp set in Aspen Mist ink.

Day 23 is a flap with a pocket that opens to the side. The top of the flap is covered in snowflakes from various punches and diecut shapes cut with my Slice.

I added a journaling tag to the pocket made from the Silver Bells Echo Park paper and cut with my Slice and the Basics 1 cartridge.

If you lift the flap you find a photomat (Bo Bunny Adlib paper) and a snowflake element layered with a 2" circle punch (Fiskars) and a die cut from the Spellbinders Contemporary Hearts Die.

Behind the flap is a pocket with a journaling tag (Slice and Basics 1 cartridge) for Day 24. The pocket is lined with paper from the AC Merrymint collection.

Day 25 is the last pocket page with an insert for photos and journaling (Silver Bells paper). I added 2 tags (Silver Bells paper, Family treasures punches, Slice, and Mistletoe cartridge) to the top corner.

The final page for my album is for Day 26. I created another band to go across the page using the Pimiento Wausau paper and the Bo Bunny Adlib paper. I added a die cut snowflake cut from the Silver Wausau paper using my Slice and Mistletoe cartridge.

I also added a small tag with a strip of paper that was accordian folded and held closed with some red Jillbean Soup twine.

Each section of the folded strip can hold a small a small frame die cut from the Quickutz instant photo die if I decide to use them.

This is the final photo of my album showing the last page and the inside of the back cover.

This is my first time putting together a December Daily album. It is also the first year I am doing Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class and thought it would be fun to combine the two projects into one. I had a lot of fun putting this together and I like having all the pocket pages in this album. It will be quick and easy to add photos and journaling to my pages. If you made it through all 3 posts, lol, I hope you enjoyed taking a look through my album. I am also going to leave you with a list of supplies I used in my album. I went through my craftroom and used things I already had in my stash to create my album. Some of them are newer products, but a few were much older products and may be hard to find. The Family Treasures punches I used to add numbers to my tags and pages are ones I have had in my stash for over 10 years!
