So now that you know what December Daily is and how easy it is to document the holidays, let’s talk about some ideas you can use as fillers for your internal pages. It can’t be all pictures, right?
Here’s 10 ideas for you to include in your album:
- Picture of your Christmas tree or Menorah. Using a bokeh effect makes your picture stand out.
- Chalkboard art, subway art, or some other type of holiday typography.
- Letter to Santa or other artwork by your kids.
- Highlight some of your favorite ornaments. Include any meaning behind the ornament.
- It seems like sequins and confetti are everywhere nowadays. Here are some good examples of how you can incorporate them into your album. Here and Here.
- The kids wish lists. It would be great for them to see what kind of things they wished for when they were younger.
- Lyrics to your favorite holiday song.
- One of your holiday cards that you found interesting. Of course, you can include this after December.
- Your holiday iTunes playlist.
- A transparency such as this one.
Hopefully this will give you some good ideas that you’ll incorporate into your holiday album this year. Remember when I told you yesterday that you should START TODAY with planning your holiday album? Some of the 10 ideas mentioned above can be incorporated into your album TODAY. You don’t have to wait, which means you can spend that extra time with your family. 🙂 And if you missed out on my blog post from yesterday, check it out HERE.
Don’t forget about Deena’s new holiday kit, Hello December, releasing this Friday along with some holiday card templates and Thanksgiving cutting files.
