December Daily 2015—Days 6 & 7

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking26 Comments

Days 6 and 7 are pretty straightforward and borrow a technique directly out of Ali Edwards’ Day 6 page. When I saw her cut a page protector I thought to myself, “Hey, I can do that, too!” Day 6 celebrates our family’s Deer in the Clear tradition and Day 7 was simply a photo I loved with some thoughts about … Read More

I have just a short post about Days 4 & 5. I’m keeping this project pretty simple thus far, which is the way I like it and the reason I’m able to keep up with it. One day, one story. The cool part is that if the story corresponds to the actual day, great. But if it doesn’t, I’m not … Read More

Another day, another entry. Love this project so far! Day Three’s entry is just a photo collage (created by manipulating my free Simple 6 x 8 template set), some words and a simple card using digital papers and a digital stamp. Last year, Aidan started something that she has decided to continue this  year: send your mama some holiday cheer … Read More

Hello Day Two! Today was about simplicity and GOOOOOOOLD! (Said, obviously, in my best Goldmember accent.) Yes, ladies, it’s true. I am MINC-ing it up! I’ve had my Minc for less than a week, but I can see how much fun it’s going to be to put gooooooold on things. Day Two’s story is about rearranging my living room for … Read More

One day done and we are having fun. I always forget how fun it is to just play with stuff. And make stuff. And then see it and be all, “That is some cuuuuuute stuff!” Before I tackled my Day One story, I pulled out one of the 12-pocket page protectors and decided to fill it up with stuff. I used … Read More

Hello December and hello to my fourth year of doing a December Daily™ album project. This year, I’m using a combination of things including Ali’s basic kit, this gold album, my free template set and a host of other little digital goodies here and there from my CZ Design Digitals collection. I created my own spine label using this digital … Read More

December Daily®—The Final Installment

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking12 Comments

My December Daily album is complete. And now it will sit for the last few days of the month along side Volumes 1 and 2. Oh for cute. It’s funny, but the closer I get to December 25 in this process, I’m always ready to be done. Not that I don’t love the project—because I really do—but I’m just ready … Read More

Man I love this time of year. I’m doing very little on the work front, ergo, the lack of blog posts this week. Everything slows down a little. We make cookies. We play games. We drink wine (not all of us in the Zielske family, mind you.) Despite the lack of sun—and I’m not kidding, we haven’t seen the sun … Read More

As of yesterday, the sun still had not come out in Minnesota, so thanks to a bit of Photoshop help, hopefully my pages are lit well enough to see today. I won’t lie: there are days where I am really wondering if I should invest in some studio lights, you know, some big soft boxes for shooting blog stuff. The only problem? … Read More

I’ve been plugging along and really enjoying the process of putting together pages every day. I have a huge crush on the 6 x 8 size. It just seems like there are so many benefits. It’s small. It uses less paper and product. It’s cute. You can mix things up with the different sized page protectors. I’m not telling you … Read More
