December Daily® 2020 | Story Twenty-Five

Welcome to my 25th and final story in my 2020 December Daily® album. 

Today I'm wrapping up this project and am feeling so thankful to all of you who told stories along side me this season. Whether you are also finishing up or just starting to play in your album or somewhere in between, thank you for your support of this project that has become a way to experience December for so many of us. 

In 2020 I really loved working outside the page protectors. That was the right choice for me personally and I savored the playing alongside the storytelling. It's such a good reminder for all of us that there isn't a right or a wrong way to approach these kinds of projects. We can do different things from year to year to get our stories told. 

If you are just learning about this project now, welcome! Each year we launch a new product collection in the beginning of September to support this project. Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates throughout the year at the bottom of my home page here

Let's dive in and take a look how this came together:

Now let's take a closer look via images:

My Christmas Day storytelling starts with one of the pages I put together for Product Play 4/foundation pages that includes a 3x8 transparency with transparent circles on top paired with two 3x4 journal cards (stitched together with my sewing machine). I added a bit of handwritten journaling on top of the card and a white chipboard star. My journaling talks about how our chaos + joy was in the evening vs. the morning this year. 

On the back of the journal cards I added a printed journal strip that holds the story I wanted to tell about our Christmas Day. I also added another white chipboard star to the back of one of the transparent circles. 

It was really a good day. 

A big messy Christmas Day photo is always a favorite. All my people diving in and chattering and laughing. 

Onto my photo I added "the best gift" which was word art included in the digital package in Product Play 4. I also added a sub heading and two white chipboard stars. 

On the back of my enlarged Christmas Day photo I added a photo from the 26th with some of the freebie word art you can download here

Along the outside of my album spine I used some of the black puffy numbers to add the year. 

Nice + thick! Totally celebrating that I was able to keep it closed on my shelf! I love that some people spread this project out into multiple albums in order to be able to add as much as thy want throughout the month. I like to stick with one album if possible and I'm so glad I was able to do that even when working outside the page protectors this year. 

Again, thank you so much for being a part of this community! I hope to tell stories alongside you in another project in 2021.

    I've had a look through the prep day digitals and I can't find the 'best gift' digital. Are you able to point me to the hour or folder that it's in please? Thanks as always for your inspiration.

      They were in Product Play 4 (not the Prep Day).

      Doh! That would be why. Found it, thanks!

    Wonderful pages to end a wonderful album! Thanks for the inspiration. It was my first year doing DD...and it has already become a favorite project! Wondering of you will ever be sharing that dance photo that Aaron gifted you? Sounds so fun!

    So good! Need to think of messy Christmas day photo for next year!
    I laughed when I read the story of your gift from Aaron and tried to imagine you both with the look of the 90s.
    Thank you very much for this project, sharing, inspiration...
    Here's my story 25:
