Hi everyone, Its Melissa here and I’m back with you today with three days in my December Daily Traveler’s Notebook.  I’m creating my entire 25 Days of December with the beautiful Joyful collection, and keeping it simple is helping me get through the month.

My first day is Day 10, and for this one I had two photos and associated stories to document.  This part of my homemade notebook has a piece of patterned paper sewn in and plain white paper.  I focused on using one of the “Pocket Cards“.

As always I am distressing all of the edges, and outlining with a journaling pen to provide extra details without dimension.

For this page I embellished with a partial fussy cut floral that I cut from one of the papers in the A5 Paper Stack and I added an Accessory Sticker.

Day 11 only had one photo, so I created a large tag using Feeling Festive and some white cardstock to hold my journaling. I embellished with cute Puffy Stickers.

I love all the cute details on the Advent cut aparts! So perfect for numbering my days.

The big tag was a fun addition to a page that needed to be filled in, and I was inspired by a scrappy friend who recently posted a photo of a TN page with a large tag.  I don’t plan the taking of my photos each day, I just try to capture moments.  Sometimes I forget to take more than one.

Day 12 just happened to be last page of my notebook (I’ll be creating volume 2 next) and had Tis’ the Season as the back cover and white cardstock.  I’ve loved using full page photos, and I size and print them at home. I used an App called Print to Size on my phone, and I print them directly to my printer. I mistakenly purchased matt photo paper and was concerned I wouldn’t like it, but I actually love how it looks.

I loved writing directly onto my photo for this page!  The holly is from the Die Cut Ephemera.








Square shaped photos are another of my favourites, and for this one of Brielle with our Christmas Countdown I just had to use the corresponding sticker!  Since the photo shows how many days until the big day I used the space in the sticker to journal.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing three of my pages, I also made a video showing me creating them and it includes a walk through of the previous days!


Thanks for looking

Melissa xx
