December is so close I can taste it! Arty’s advent calendar is up, the Christmas cards are mostly written, and the tree is decorated! Even though we did it in November, I had to tell the decorating story in the December Daily album, and this is how it looks…

I was able to repurpose some packaging from a set of Christmas lights I’d purchased, and use a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper with it to make a pocket with a little star-shaped window in it so you can see the baubles peeping through. This was a great way to achieve a see-through element without having to use specially purchased plastic-based products, which I am currently phasing out of my stash in order to make my scrapbooking more sustainable. 



I love those cute little cars on the patterned paper – I thought they were appropriate since this is a new tree, and we were very excite for it to arrive!

All the trim on the photos, and the pom poms on the bottom have made this a very chunky little element, but I love a bulky album full of texture and detail, so I’m pretty happy with that!
