It’s Esther here. December 1st is just a few days away, which means it’s almost time to start your daily #DecemberDBD journaling! (You can learn more about the December Day-By-Day Challenge here.)
Today, I’m here to share some ideas and tips for your #DecemberDBD journal. I recommend trying to add pictures to your pages each day –– from “normal” things like doing the dishes or groceries, and a full/empty fridge. It really doesn’t matter what you take pictures of –– everything you do on a single day is fine. It’s more about documenting each day, whether it’s work, sports, watching tv, cooking diner, babysitting, laundry, etc.
If you find yourself lacking inspiration on a certain day, here’s a list of some themes/ideas that might help:
- Photo of your craft desk/room
- Buy yourself a treat/something you really like to eat and try to make a stunning picture of it to use in your journal
- Your favorite (Christmas) song
- Decorating your tree
- A black & white picture
- Write a letter to Santa and hide it in your journal
- Take pictures of December decorations in your area, or go to a garden centre or decorated shop to take pictures.
- Wrapping presents
- Create a tag
- Your favorite (feel-good) movie
- A selfie
- Your pets or birds and other animals in the garden
- Donate $5 to charity
- Your favorite Facebook group 😉
- Christmas cards you are sending and/or receiving
- Your front door or house
- A recipe
- Hot chocolate or a good cup of tea/coffee
- Your dream house
- Shopping list
- Family tradition(s)
- PJ’s all day –– staycation
- Cleaning a closet or a room
- The sky/the weather today
- The kitchen
- Work moment
- What makes you happy?
- Make a page with paint or watercolor
- News: What’s happening right now –– local or worldwide
- New Years wishes
If you are planning to journal through the full month of December (1–31st) to review the past year, you can also add things like: the best thing that happened last year, the saddest thing that happened last year, milestones, etc.
For our Dutch members there is also Sinterklaas on December 5th –– a great subject for your December-Day-By-Day journal/ planner!
I hope this helps give you a little bit of inspiration as we get ready to document our December! Don’t forget to join us on the ECD Planner Page on Facebook to see other crafters’ planner pages, and to share pictures of your own!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! My family and I went to “Sunny” Southern California earlier this year, and it RAINED. I scrapbooked the results for my special moments planner.
Good morning Crafters, today it is Luciana here, with a new planner spread. I love using the planning system to keep memories and picture and little pieces of my everyday life.
Step 1. create a background page. Use some watercolor as base, and the stamps from the set Pure Spring and the set Patterns 2. Create a texture on the page using the die from the set Planner Patterns and some stripes of washi tapes. Add the hole reinforcers from the set Planner Essentials – 7.
Step 2. Stamp on the White Soft Finish Cardstock the 3 labels from the set Retro Labels, then the sentiments “hello everyday life” from the set Retro Labels Sayings and “for the record” from the set Family. In the empty label I added the name of the baby.
Step 3. Add some embellishments.
Die cut from the White Soft Finish Cardstock:
2 set of Garden Notes – Frosty Fern
2 set of Garden Notes – Eucalyptus Frosty Fern
2 set of labels from the set Planner Essentials – 11

Good morning! I was honored to be asked by Els to create a layout of her granddaughter and her. I will admit, I was slightly nervous to create something for someone else but the photo she provided was so wonderful that it helped design the layout.
To create this layout you will need 2 full sheets of paper (I used ModaScrap Wood Effect paper (the top one) and ModaScap Relax in the Garden. I also used lots of bits and pieces and 1/2 sheets of the relaxing the garden papers. You will also need an edge distresser, brown ink, a few pearls for inside your flowers and of course your wonderful ECD dies.
Step 1 – Trim your top sheet to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 then using a pair of sharp scissors trim a bit of the top sheet in little bit so the bottom sheet will show more then using your distressing tool shred the edges a bit on both papers
Step 3 – Using the smallest shape in the fitted hexagons die set, cut 23 – 25 hexagons. Ink then distress the edges.
Step 4 – Using the Planner Essentials 8 cut one of the large tag and the title and ink and die and ink and distress
Step 5 – Using the stitched circles die cut the second largest circle the ink and distress the edges
Step 6 – Using planner essentials 11 cut one of the tags and 4 of the strips then ink and distress the edges
Step 7 – Cut the top layer of the butterfly flourish and ink the edges
Step 8 – Using the backside of one of the relaxing in garden papers or a piece of off white cardstock die cut 2 leafy branches, then trim them in half so you will now have 4 pieces and ink the edges
Step 9 – Using your left over pieces of paper and your favorite flower dies die cut your flowers – I used, bunch of flowers 3, large flower set, and small flower set. I cut three of each flower and layered each one but you can also just die cut one and leave your flowers flat.
Step 10 – Assemble and enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by
