December Daily in progress

This weekend I got to dig in to my December Daily project. I've tried to get a few photos but between being without my regular camera and the dark evenings we've got now it's proving a difficult task!I tried my best anyway. Here's what I've got so far.
I decided ages ago on a 6x4 inch format because I had lots of blank postcards I wanted to use as pages. I've supplimented the postcard pages with pieces of cardstock, (doubled up to make them thicker) and acetate pieces.
The cover is made with a Hambly transparancy as the base the piece of kraft cardstock is a blank page I've left behind it. The full pile of goodies I used is on an earlier post bellow. I've mixed up supplies I already had with a few new purchases.

I'm keeping most of the pages quite simple because I've got a small format so I need to leave plenty of room for a photo and some journalling or maybe just one or the other.

Here's one of the postcard pages. I'm going to use the space on the left for a photo then the lines on the right for the journalling. The little postmark stamps worked out just right for the stamp space in the top corner. I've used my date stamp, (it's just one of those from the office supply stores) alongside it to date the pages.

I dug out my Smash book stash, some of the things like the note pages make fun little journalling prompts to fill in.

I'm adding some little kind of divider pages in between each of the daily pages. Some with little reminder like the one above, (time to make cards) then there's the little 'days to go' pages like the one below.

Wow Leo, I just love mini albums and this Christmas one is gorgeous. I so want to make one of these in the lead up to Christmas but not sure I'll find the time. You've inspired me so I might have a go!! :)
