December Daily with “Seasons” (Winter)

Alexandra Morein

Hello dear G45ers!

Can you believe that it is already that time of the year, when we are in search of presents and agonizing over every detail of making these magical holidays perfect?


I have never had a “December Daily” book (or album), but this year I thought I'd give it a try. I created a notebook with cardstock pages in two colors (white and craft), added a couple of pockets to the inside front and back covers, embellished some of the pages of the notebook too, all that using one of the recent collections - Seasons. I really wanted to cut into those papers, but since we have just stepped into winter, I left the rest of the seasons’ sheets for later :)


Now I will be writing down what we did on each day of December 2017 and will add pictures of some memorable moments. From the small fussy cut elements, I created stickers and placed them into the pocket on the inside back cover. This way I can easily access them when I feel like I need to add more interest to a certain page in my December Daily.


May your holidays be special and creative with Graphic 45!” ~Alexandra

The Kraft sets off the that gorgeous colors and patterns. Nice!

Love this. Where did you get the "Delight in the Little Things" tag? That is a variation of one of my favorite sayings, which is, "Celebrate the small things. It may be all you get!"

Alexandra Morein:

Hi Judy! The sentiment on this tag is made with the stamp from a really old set by Whimsy Stamps and it was called "everyday sayings notables 4". I don't think it is available anywhere now. here is the link for you to view how it looked like:
