Documenting the Holidays with Cocoa Daisy

Hello, friends!

We hope you are enjoying the holiday season and snapping a few photos along the way. Our Creative Team is busy using the Winter Twilight Collection and the 2021 Christmas Collection to document this month’s festivities. Keep reading to see what they created!

Marsha is still working away on my December album, and the Winter Twilight Collection is perfect for this project!
“I am using a ringed traveler’s notebook for my holiday album this year, so I trimmed one of my favorite patterned papers from the Winter Twilight Simple Dori to serve as a background for the layout. Then, I used label die cuts, label stickers, and chipboard stars from the Winter Twilight Modern Memory Keeping Kit to highlight the plaid design on the paper. I added small puffy stickers and enamel stars to finish off the page.
For the title of my spread, I mixed stamps and puffy alpha stickers from the Winter Twilight Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and the Winter Twilight Modern Memory Keeping Kit along with alpha die cuts from a previous kit.
This layout also includes a flip-up created with my photo and a journaling card from the Modern Memory Keeping Kit. I typed my journaling on clear sticker paper before adding it to the journaling card. This is a quick and easy way to include typed journaling on a pocket card.
I love how this spread turned out using the Winter Twilight Collection! Happy December documenting!”

“Merry Christmas Daisies!! I hope you all had a magical holiday season filled with wonder and light. While I do make a Document December album, I also like to document the season in my love language: 12×12 layouts. I did this festive 12×12 layout using the Winter Twilight Collection and the 2021 Christmas Collection. Let’s see how this came together:
I started by making my background. I took a 12×12 piece of paper from the Winter Twilight 12×12 Paper Kit and used the candy cane paper from the 2021 Christmas Collection to make a strip down the middle. I then stamped using stamps from the Winter Twilight Planner Kit and the 2021 Christmas Collection.
Once the stamping was done, I painted over it with some white acrylic paint from my stash and then embroidered a border down the edge. Once this background was complete, I used a 3×4 card from the Winter twilight modern memory keeping and popped it up in a grid style with my picture.
 I then danced some embellishments from the 2021 Christmas Collection and the Winter Twilight Collection around the page to bring this layout together. I especially love the snowman at the bottom that adds some fun whimsy to this spread. I can’t wait to see how you all document the holidays! Cheers!”
Odessa shares a pocket page spread with all the cozy holiday cheer.
“Obviously, The Winter Twilight Collection is perfect for December Documenting so I used it to quickly put together this page focused on our little cat during the holidays. I used a page with 4-3×4 pockets on one side and I hole punched one of the Winter Twilight Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to go next to it. I just love adding layers like that into my albums.
I kept the photo embellishments simple, a chipboard piece on one and a phrase sticker, and some various stars from the collection. I used a simple card from the Winter Twilight Modern Memory Keeping Kit up in the left corner.
My favourite part of the layout is the journal card at the bottom. I used a mix of handwritten text, phrase stickers, and alpha stickers from the Winter Twilight Collection for my journaling. I love how it looks all mixed up.”
