December Daily Plans and Scrapbook Supplies!

Hi all, and welcome to another Blogmas post!

Today I thought I'd share my December scrapbooking plans, and some of the supplies I intend to use this month. This year, I'm doing things a little differently! To me, my project life albums don't feel finished if I document December elsewhere, so I always include a few pages of Christmassy photos. However, this year I'm going to be making a few mini albums alongside my usual project life pages! I have an 8x8 red album I bought recently from Hobbycraft, and a 4x4 gold album that I've had hanging around for over a year... oops. Both albums are by We R Memory Keepers. I'm intending to use the 8x8 album for December Daily, by making a layout a day of my favourite photo/s from said day. In this album, I intend to stick mostly with traditional Christmassy colours, which I'll touch on later! The 4x4 gold album will be used to make a little "Merry Woofmas" album, of all my favourite festive pictures of my dogs. I've already taken SO many, it's a little embarrassing. I'm not sure what colour scheme I'll go with yet, but so far all my photos have been quite heavy on the red hues of Christmas, so I may end up going traditional in this album too.

You might be wondering why I'm mentioning colour schemes... it's because I have two to choose from! I have all my traditional bits and pieces in reds and greens, and then I have almost the entire Snow and Cocoa collection by Crate Paper, which features more pinks and teals. I absolutely love both options, and I wanted to make use of both this year, but I didn't really want to mix them. Instead, I've separated them into two boxes, and I think I'm going to use the traditional bits for my layout a day album, and the Snow and Cocoa collection for my Project Life pages. You wait though... I'll probably end up mixing them after all!

I hope you've enjoyed hearing my plans for scrapping in December! There'll be lots of process videos and layout shares along the way too, so I hope you'll follow along!

Are you doing December Daily?

Join Me For Blogmas & Vlogmas 2016!

Hello all, and happy December!

So super excited to share that I'm (kind of) doing Vlogmas and Blogmas this year, even though this post is coming a few days late. Behind already, so typical of me! I say "kind of", because I'm doing things a bit differently this year. I intend to upload a video on my youtube channel every day, however, there will be a mix of content. Some days there'll be a vlog (the first of which you can see below) and other days there'll be a craft-related video. I'm hoping that this will mean there's something for everyone to enjoy, and it will give me a bit of variety too. I'm making a few mini albums for December and I'm hoping to share my process with you throughout the month, as well as sharing my usual project life pages. 

As for Blogmas, I'm blogging every day, but on alternate blogs: one day I'll post here, and the next I'll post on my dog blog. Again, I'm hoping this will give me some variety and keep me motivated, and blogging every other day also gives me free days to write spontaneous posts if I feel like it! I hope you'll follow along with me.

I really hope you enjoy, are you doing Vlogmas or Blogmas this year?
