December Daily Flip Through

Happy Holidays Crafty Friends!  I am so excited and I feel so accomplished for completing my December Daily 2018.  I told myself to be satisfied with complete rather than perfect.  In the end, I am smitten with my album and how wonderful it is.  I used a majority of the Snow and Cocoa line from Crate Paper that was released 2 years ago.  Last year I had a newborn baby and thought I would be able to scrap.  Turns out I had no time.  Opening weeks of motherhood are the toughest.

Valentina's first birthday party was actually on the first of December.  It was a baby Frida themed party and it was the perfect opening layout and story for Day 1.

I liked the cohesiveness of my pink numbers cut out from pink glitter card stock and embellishments from the Snow and Cocoa line.

Day 6 we took Valentina to see Santa and that was a hilarious experience.  She loved the snow and the trees but as soon as she saw the main guy she lost her marbles within seconds.  Im glad the photographer snapped the initial photo seconds before she started hysterical crying.

My love for Starbucks runs deep all year round.  But when the holiday designs come out, I become obsessed.  Took each pattern of Starbucks cup and made them into PL cards and circle punched a bunch to remember all the beautiful colors for Day 7.

Paige Evans has some beautiful cut files to use year round and her holiday gingerbread house was no exception.  Used it in a 6x8 pockets and it became a resting spot to my next story of our matching jammie tradition.  Each year we all get a pair.  Now we get to include Valentina in it as well.  

How I love my sister, let me count the ways.  Day 10, ten things I love about my sister.  She comes and visits multiple times this year to help me with the baby.  I love her more and more as we grow up.  Snow and Cocoa and FaLaLa chipboard pieces here and a felt mint snowflake from Michaels.

We took our holiday card photos on Day 11 and my sister was the photographer.  An older Heidi Swapp wood veneer and embellishments from the FaLaLa collection from Crate Paper.  We printed our holiday cards this year from Staples. 

Loving my Zoe who is aging like fine wine.  She had a vet checkup on Day 15 and she is healthy and just aging with some arthritis pain.  She has never liked going to the vet and she hides in the office every single time.  But she looks so darn cute in her holiday sweater.

Last year memories to this year.  Valentina was such a tiny little baby.  I love documenting life and going back to visit it like this. 

Pinterest fail on Day 18.  I tried making red hand print ornaments for my family and it was an epic fail but I kept my practice runs and will write about her tiny hands.  But my baby sitter did the ornament just right.  

Stripes of patterned paper to make my fun Christmas Tree and I finally got around to telling the story of my tree on Day 22. 

My inspiration for Day 25 was from Ali Edwards and her tag layout.  All elements from Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa or FaLaLa.  I love the tags to show our day.  Below you will find my YT flip through video.  Thank you so much for joining me.  Till next project.
