Last January 2018, the Evia Lifestyle Center in Muntinlupa City held a series of workshops to introduce their customers to new crafts and hobbies to help them jumpstart the new year.    For the Crafted Memories segment, I came in to share tips and techniques I have learned as an avid fan of journaling and scrapbooking.

We brought in stamps, stickers, patterned papers, journaling cards, ephemeras and many more that the guests used to decorate their journals and scrapbooks.

Crafting is such a wonderful opportunity for parent and child bonding.  I was happy to see a lot of moms crafting with their kids.

December Daily

I first heard about December Daily from Ali Edwards.   It’s about creatively “documenting the 25 days leading up to Christmas. ”    Every year, she and chosen designers come up with several kits for documenting the season.  Kit contents include scrapbook cards, stickers, ephemeras and more.  Instead of buying new Christmas themed kits, I decided to just shop within my own stash.  I was surprised to find that I had Christmas themed items from years before.

For this project, I mainly used stickers from Claus & Co. made by Simple Stories, scrapbook cards from Project Life and Simple Stories and Christmas themed stamp sets from Hero Arts.

I started by making my own Christmas themed prompts then searching over Pinterest for other prompt ideas.  On the last week of November, I started prepping the pages of my journal so that when the actual day comes, I will only just write.  Sometimes I wrote in lists.

Sometimes in paragraphs.

Some of the prompts I chose were embarrassing to share in public, so I decided to share them #beforethepen instead. 🙂

I really enjoyed making this Christmas project.  It felt really good to be reminiscing about my past Christmases as well as celebrating this current season.  Hope that you can try doing this simple project next season.
