I'm sharing some more details of a mini album I have featured in this issue. It's true.  I never finished my December Daily last year.  That's because I just finished it last month!!  Last Decemeber I focused on the journaling, which was important for me, and I did pretty good at.  Yes, there were a few days I missed, but considering what a crazy time of year it is PLUS we moved on Dec. 17 after living with my parents for 6 months, it was a LOT!  So I am happy to share my finished album with you today!





I posted how I created my jouraling pages last year.  You can read about it HERE.










The cover I covered with paper, splattered some gold mist, cut a circle from a transparency (with the reindeer on it), and layered some die cut snowflakes and other little embellishments.








For the inside pages, I used the Fancy Pants Brag Book pages that hold two 4x6 photos.  If I had portrait oriented photos, I simply added them to a piece of 5x7 patterened paper and embellished it.  I added these pages inbetween the photo sleeves and other jorunaling pages.  I just went along and embellished each page with some die cuts, stickers, washi tape, chipboard, and more!  So here are some of the pages:

















Thanks for stopping by today on this blog hop!  Hop along the blogs below, leaving a comment on each, then back to the Paper Haus blog!

What a lovely book to document your memories in! Love the deer and the Sparkaliscious DEC on the cover! I really love the kraft paper! It makes it look well loved right from the start! TFS!

Beautiful album. the cover is great - love the deer. I never think to use 1/2 sheets for photos so every page isn't exactly the same - add more interest with various size pages. thanks for sharing a fantastic memory

What a lovely journal. I am truly horrid at keeping journals or dailies. I lack the discipline. Maybe I'll make one this year and save it for next :)

I love love love your album. I must come back and study it carefully! I love how you've kept the kraft color on all the pages with white ink so that any picture matches. I have struggled with purple snow suits and red and green paper for far too long! Thanks for a wonderful idea. Your album is fantastic! TFS. Wishing you and yours all the very best this holiday season! :)

What a lovely Christmas/December album. I wish I had done more of this when our children were young. I really didn't start until I got Grandchildren. I would love to have those innocent memories to look back on. Thanks for sharing.

Really love how you've focused on the journalling, it's all those little things and details that disappear from memory the fastest. This sure is a beauty of a book!! xoxo

Way cool!!

Your album is fabulous! I think as long as you keep plugging along, the doing is more important than finishing on everyone else's deadline. After all, scrapbooking is supposed to be fun!

Fantastic album. I'm totally in awe of anyone who can produce wonderful journals like this. I don't seem to get enough time (even a year wouldn't be enough)
