Smile Advent 2014 - Day 1 - Documenting December

Welcome to day 1 of the Oscraps Advent Event!
You'd better sit down, because have I got a challenge for you! Not just a single challenge,
but a "real" challenge!

I am doing a documenting december/december daily project for 2014.
Every day of December I will scrap a card/layout so I will end up with a December Album for 2014.
My challenge to you is: JOIN ME!
Don't stop reading, don't be discouraged!
You are still at Oscraps, where we celebrate the Holidays relaxed.

I will come back to this topic to show you my daily card and it would be fun if you scrap at least 1 layout or card. Or even if that is too much, join us in discussing ideas for a december daily project. So you will be excited to start it next year!
I will make a list of all topics and ideas that are posted so we (or I) don't run out of ideas. Together we can motivate each other and keep going.
You can choose your own style for this project,
make it vintage
use journal cards
go artsy
make full photo pages
paper/hybrid scrap
art journal
or just scrap a quote of the day/word of the day.
How about making an advent calendar/gift tag project?
Anything goes as long as you have fun.
I even found a perfect quote online for those of you that do not celebrate the Holidays:
You can upload your layout to the special O-vents gallery.
Or better, if you want to make several pages, create an album in your personal gallery and keep them all together.


In 2012 and 2013 I also made an album with my Documenting December pages.
You can take a look if you want to get an idea of what is possible, 2013 album or 2012 album.
Have you done a similar project and have your pages online, please link us up so we can get some inspiration.

My cover for the daily pages is already finished, here it is,



so, only 31 (or 25 if you prefer) pages to go!




Rules:
Use 100% Oscraps,
upload to special O-Vents gallery before 2015!!

Prize info:
Mr. Random, or Santa himself
will pick two winners for a $5 coupon.

Current December Albums:

Tips to make it easier:

- If you want to include a (P365 style) picture for each day, take your picture, even if you think you will not finish your daily page in time!
You can Always finish your page later, but you can not go back in time to take your picture!

- Recycle! If you have a layout ready that would be perfect for your album, USE IT. Give yourself an easy day!

- Copy a page! When you have two similar page subjects make them a pair (like a double pager)! Just copy your basic design/background and adjust the titlework/ journaling.

- Are you stuck with ideas, just scraplift a page you adore!!

Ideas to scrap/document:

- TO DO List
- Is it that time again?
- A time to record.
- A time to reflect & remember.
- A time to believe

- A time to observe.
- A time to enjoy.
- It’s that time again.
- Hello, December.

- Scrap a Christmas song, or lyrics

Oh Diane, I love your cover page.

I've been a HUGE fan of documenting my December, and for the last 6 years I have followed an online group hosted by Shimelle Laine, an American scrapbooker living in London, called Journal Your Christmas. She really makes us think outside the box, getting us to write about different aspects, not just the day to day "Today I did this" kind of stuff, but much deeper, drawing on memories from years ago. She sends a daily email prompt to get us thinking and focus our minds.

Each year I've created a complete album, mostly digital, and printed them out. Each is different, each is wonderful and I love that I've recorded these things.

After 6 years I feel like I'm rather journaled out (and for those of you that know me and know quite how much write on my pages will be surprised to say the least!) and I wasn't going to do another album this year. Although I completed all my journaling last year as I went along, I lost interest in actually putting the album together, and it languishes on my hard drive only half completed.

But then Shimelle's email arrived this morning and I though maybe..... Then I thought no, really, I promised myself no...... NO...... But maybe..... Just maybe.....

Watch this space!!!

First thing I Always think about when December is showing up on my calendar is Documenting December, and I start collecting ideas and making lists.


So my first page is called: To Do List

Nice one Diane - especially the cup of tea!!


I kind of started, ish!

I wrote a manifesto - the opening entry Shimelle gets us to do every year. I may not continue and I have no idea how or even if I'll scrap it, but I wrote it anyway and I saved a Journaling file!

Here goes:

Is it that time again?
A time to record.
A time to reflect & remember.
A time to believe - in what will probably be the last year of innocence in our household.
A time to observe.
A time to enjoy.
It’s that time again.
Hello, December.


Lets see if I can keep this up.

This is awesome. I'll be keeping an eye on this page. I'm thinking of doing something for next year and I think this will give me some good ideas on documenting life.
