For the past several years I have participated in Ali Edwards' December Daily project and this year is no different...in that I am participating. What is different is 1) I am using a 4 x 6 album, a much smaller format than I typically create, and 2) I am creating an album using physical product plus digital. Basically, this will be a hybrid project with mixed physical product and printed photos and digitally created pages.
This is a huge step outside my comfort zone as for the last 10+ years I have been memory keeping completely digital (printing all of my created pages as photographs and inserting them into scrapbooking albums.
However, I'm jumping in heart first! And, even amidst life's changes and challenges and tears I'm taking back the season and doing what my heart wants. My heart wants to celebrate December.
I intentionally chose 4 x 6 because it was less daunting for this first year doing December Daily traditionally, using physical product. I had such fun receiving the product in the mail over these past several months and begin planning pages with an eye for 'what can I do with physical product?' and 'what is realistic?'
For my first story of December I am telling the story of these Noonday ornaments I've missed out on the past couple of years because I procrastinated but when they were released this year I ordered without hesitation.
I added a printed tag insert, front...
...and back, because recently I met the founder and owner of Noonday and it was simply a joy to meet her and she is real and a delight.
I love the simplicity of the pages and thrilled with how they turned out.
