December Day in the Life Pocket Spread by Megan

Hi everyone! It’s Megan and I’m excited to share my December 2017 Day in the Life spread with you!

I still have a few more to make, but I finished documenting Day in the Life monthly in 2017! I’ve been doing this monthly since 2013 and change up the day that I record monthly each year. 2017 I did it on the first, this year the random number generator determined it will be on the 10th.

The December 2017 Freckled Fawn Kit and journal cards were perfect for this spared!

I decided to use a repetitive layout for this spread so it would come together quickly. I used two Design P (all 4×4 square) pocket page protectors and alternated photos (some full 4×4, some with 2×2 photo collages) with journaling cards.

Since the journaling cards are 3×4, I used 4×4 cardstock and framed two sides of them with washi tape, adhering the cards in the middle. I love the plus pattern that the cards make on the pages!

I kept the embellishing to a minimum on most of the spread, since there’s a lot going on with all of those patterns and that awesome shiny glitter washi, but I did have some fun with the title card!

I used the word “December” from the vellum stickers to start and wrote “Day in the Life” with the red puffy alpha stickers. I used the tiny rhinestone heart stickers to separate the words, since they were close together and needed a bit more of a visual break. Lastly I added a cardstock diecut so I could include the date.

For the rest of the spread, I added a cardstock diecut to the center of each of the photo collages to finish off with embellishing.

Other than starting my family’s Ornament a Day project, Christmas celebrating was not in full swing around here on December 1. I wanted the spread to feel wintery, but not Christmasy, so I left out the green from the kit. The kit is much more versatile if you stick with including red OR green for non-Christmas layouts.

Are you planning on doing Day in the Life this year? Ali has three days planned for 2018–I highly recommend it!
