October Daily with Carolee

Hello everyone! Have you ever heard of October Daily? How about December Daily? If you've heard of December Daily, it's the same thing: taking photos and scrapping them every day for a month to show what your holiday was like that year. The only difference is that in October Daily's case, it's Halloween instead of a winter holiday.

Today, I've got two pages to share with you. In the past, I'd used pocket pages, but at the beginning of the year, I decided that I was really not a pocket page girl and moved over, almost exclusively, to traveler's notebooks. I love them!


First up is this day where I started my annual October rewatch of all the Harry Potter movies #hufflife For this page, I used some black paper from my stash and circle punches to make the background. Then I layered a tab and picture mat cut from the different sides of Sanderson under an Instax photo of my Instagram story from that time. I used the journaling card and one of the tickets from the cut apart sheet and it was complete! That's one of the things I really love about TNs. They can come together really quickly and with a project like October Daily where you're doing something every day, that's a big advantage!


Next up is this day where, seriously, the highlight of my day was a salad. I know it seems crazy, but that salad was really good! I also plated it on some of my vintage china so that helped add to the prettiness factor. For this page, I again dug into Sanderson (what can I say? I love that paper!) using part of the B side to fill the right page and using a bit of the A side as a photo mat. Then I added some pieces from the ephemera pack around to add a title and a bit of pink. Finally, I found that little cat sticker in my stash so I had to add him! I finished it off with a couple stamps from my stash to get some journaling and the date on there.

As with all of these types of projects, I'm a bit behind so keep an eye on my Instagram to see more as I complete them. Until next time, happy crafting!
