December Daily 2015—Catching Up

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking5 Comments

I’ve fallen a bit off the daily path of making December Daily album entries, but today I’ll share a few of the pages to date. I’m really keeping it simple. There’s not a lot of crafty magic going on here, just a bit of digital know-how and some Minc action. (Yes, I am having way too much fun with the … Read More

A few thoughts on December Daily

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life43 Comments

Sometimes I get ideas when I walk. And I’m not talking about when I walk on the treadmill, or go around the lake by my house for exercise. Those walks include Netflix and podcasts. (I’ll let you figure out what goes with what.) I’m talking about the walking I try to do every morning while I wait for the coffee to … Read More

December Daily 2015—Day 8

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking5 Comments

Yesterday’s entry was all about Dan going down to visit our daughter on her campus in Southern Minnesota. Because it’s only about an hour away, it’s pretty easy to get down for a visit. I asked them one favor: get a photo of the two of you. They complied. Here’s a look at the full spread for Day 8. I … Read More

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

December Daily 2015—Day 3

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
