Holidaily Walkthrough with Carolee

Hi everyone! Today I'm going to show you the rest of my Holidaily album! You can see the first part of the album by going over to this blog post I made about it


One of the things I really liked doing with this album is full size pictures. I never do these in bigger formats so it's fun to do them here., This was a day of festive coffee drinking for me: a nice cup of coffee in a festive teacup and a Christmas Tree frappuccino! 

This day, I chose to focus on the paper and add lots of snowy elements. We never get snow here in Los Angeles, but I thought this might be a nice day to do that with the bright lights of our lunch place. That burger was really good! I took some of the snowflakes from the die cut pack and added them along with some clusters of sequins to add a snowy look.


This was another place where I wanted to let the picture take the show. It was a great photo of the room with many of my friends in the shot. For this, I just made a little cluster of decoration in the upper right corner with die cuts, paper scraps and some thickers I had in my stash.


This page here is a bit of a weird one because I decided to add a different element to it. I made tags to bring to mind the tags on presents and added them into the notebook. Each of the tags has a picture of one of my dogs in their Christmas collars. On the other side is our stockings hung by the fireplace and a die cut letter to Santa!

This page is about the night out we had for my husband's birthday. We went to a local tiki bar and I had a picture of the amazing decor, so I made that the featured photo. For the left side, I punched green circles from the matching paper and layered them, along with more of those thickers, to decorate up that side.


Next up was Christmas Day which I got to celebrate with lots of friends, including Andrea! Here's a picture of her and I together with the gift I got her. I added the Merry Christmas paper to the right and did a bit of journaling. Easy peasy and lets the photo take the focus.


It's Boxing Day and some friends finally got us to go see Star Wars! With this one, the poster is such a strong red presence that I wanted to keep everything else really simple. Added the red ticket to the poster and a bit of paper to back the photo of our snack and it's good to go!

And finally here we are at New Year's Eve! I can't believe I finished the whole notebook! I hope you enjoyed this look through it. Until next time, happy crafting!
