Day with >> Els

Hi, Els here today. We were about half way through December by the time I decided to start a December Daily album. I have to admit that receiving the beautiful Peachy Christmas papers pulled me in. Today I’d like to share the first part of my album with you. For the title page I used the negative from the deer die-cut I used for the cover. I backed it up with that beautiful red pattern and added some gold glitter Thickers.

For my first double spread, I used an enlargement of a picture of our Christmas tree on the left, and then the day by day documenting starts. The die-cuts sheet of the Peachy Christmas collection with the filler cards came in very handy.

Along with the day 6 filler card, I used a strip of red arrows I trimmed off from one of the manufacturers strips. All of the papers of the Peachy Christmas collection have these arrows, I could not just throw them in the garbage.

Most of my spreads are kept really simple, so almost all attention goes to the pictures. For day 8, the day we put up the tree, I have a double spread.

I’m up to day 10 now in my album. I absolutely loved working with these papers for my DD album. I especially enjoy the pop of red I can add to my spreads, without going too bold.

I’m still working on the rest of this album and will surely share the rest of it on my blog in the near future. I hope you enjoyed this part so far.

Els, DT Studio Tekturek
