December Daily 2019 | Tamara Buckler

Hello again lovely peeps,

I wanted to sneak in one more Christmas share before Christmas becomes a distant memory … and I’ll hope you’ll forgive me because it’s a good one!! It’s my first December Daily (ish)!!

Now, I’m not a big Christmas documenter, and I’m also not great at keeping up with daily things, but after what had been a pretty rough 2019, I needed something to get me in the spirit. A few ideas came together for me, including a mini album I had seen Sue Plumb put together here, and the Photo A Day challenge that I found here, and I combined these to come up with my format. I also didn’t pressure myself to take photos or create layouts daily, and the result was…I actually got it done!!

Now the reason I’m here to share this with you at CUT to YOU is because I used a heap of our Cut Files in the mini album, and I used them in several different ways!

Ahh I love this little guy!! The CUT to YOU gingerbread man. He’s a fave! And I think he looks super cute here as a page divider! I cut him out quite small, and backed him with various papers, including Kraft cardstock for his body, and simply punched a hole in his hand so he could slot into the album. Isn’t he the cutest!?!

Next up I have used the Holly Jolly Christmas Cut File to create a stand alone page. The prompt for this day was ‘red & white’ and I didn’t really have anything, so I thought it was a really good option to make this Cut File a feature using R&W paper for my background.

I have used the Merry Everything Cut File to again created a page divider. I cut this out in white card stock, and then coloured it with a red Sharpie. I have backed it with a kraft cardstock paper, so that it was solid enough to handle being flipped back and forth. Fun!

I have use the gorgeous Candy Cane Cut File to create another feature page. This one is a bit of a spacer to allow for a double page spread on the other side. I used a piece of red patterned paper for the candy cane section, and then used some silver washi tape for the bow.

I have also used the TN Christmas Tree Quad Cut File on two seperate pages. I have cut them into seperate trees, and for the first layout I’ve backed the file with patterned paper and washi and adhered to my page.

On the second page, I have coloured the Cut File with black Posca Pen, and have then simply slid it on to the rings in my album to create a little page divider.

I have created a little bit of a flip through, which I have shared over on my Instagram, pop on over if you want to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by again today, I look forward to sharing again with you next month!

Big Loves,

Tam xo
