Maybe add your planner page (or at least a photo) as the list?

*If you're playing along with our Challenge individually your challenge is to create a page(s) that has a list. Make sure to include a photo of the person or items or something that's showing on that list so you can tell the story further of the list importance!

Add hearts as embellishments

Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********

Bells and Bows
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ... " oh yes, we're getting into the season with Black Friday and Cyber Monday getting close ,... One of the fun parts of the season for me is all the Bells and Bows! Everywhere you look, there's some sort of bell or bow in all sizes and shapes. What's your favorite?

If you're doing a December Album, your challenge is to add "bells or bows" to your page(s). You can use diecuts, stickers, background papers, stamps ... oh so many choices! This will make a great page for you to add holiday festival or party pictures ...

If you're playing along with our individual challenges, your challenge is to select embellishments for a page that represent "bells and bows". This could be ribbon, twine, material, stickers, diecuts, stamps etc ... For bells you could add "metal embellishments" (like eyelets, brads, ephermera, badge buttons that represent the metal for bells or stamps, diecuts or stickers that are actually bells. You could even use photo's that have bells or bows in them ... let's see how creative you can be ...

Week 3 / Challenge 14
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********

Silverbells ... It's Christmas Time in the City
I just saw on the news tonight that the City Christmas Tree arrived for the annual tree lighting festival. It's a good time every year ... there are so many festivals and fun events ... let's be sure to include them


If you're doing a December Album, it's always fun to have a page(s) that highlight your City, Neighborhood or Town Square Christmas Tree lighting or parade. This one is going to need multiple horizontal photo spots to capture all the action. Let's see what you can come up with

If you're playing along with our individual challenge, scrap a page(s) about your city, town, or neighborhood. It can be a Summer festival, Local highschool event or annual parade. It might even be the Tree lighting Event ... Be a tourist in your own town and show us the photos!

Default Day 15 - Fa-La-La-La-La -- VSBN17NovDec

Week 3 / Challenge 15
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********

Fa-La-La-La-La
How early is too early? haha! I know the great debate about how early is too early for Christmas music always goes around this time of year. For me, I'm ready when the weather gets cold and it's close to Thanksgiving. I love Christmas music ...

If you're doing a December Album, you gotta have page(s) for your favorite Christmas tunes. Maybe you tell the story about "how early is too early" and maybe you just share your favorite but this one will be fun to look back on as you reminisce about music in your life. This one probably needs more journaling space so be sure to save room

If you're playing along with our individual challenge, scrap a page(s) with a Song Title or Lyrics as your Page Title. Find some inspiration for a fun page ... it might even be "Happy Birithday" .... just be sure to hum along as you finish the page ...

** Don't Forget**

If you're playing along with our Individual Challenge Pages, this page should include Star Embellishments, something sparkly and "Star" photos on your page. How you interpret "stars" is up to you. Like the December Daily album, it might be "night stars", "stars" in your life, favorite TV, Movie or Music Stars or Star decorations ...I can't wait to see what you come up with

Default Day 17 - Playful Pets - VSBN17NovDec

Week 3 / Challenge
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********

Playful Pets
I have a little dog and 2 cats. My little dog Bella, although she doesn't love cold, does love to play in the snow,. Too funny! I did buy her a little dog jacket for Christmas though, don't tell her it's wrapped for her to open as she also really loves wrapping paper What would we do without our furry family?

If you're doing a December Album, and you have pets, be sure to create a page(s) for your pet pictures. What'?! Gasp, not taking your dog or cat to see Santa? What about just a story about how much you love having them around. Don't have pets ... stretch your creative muscle on this one. Did you take a carriage ride at the tree trimming festival, go see a live nativity, spot some cardinals in the trees outside ... let's see what you can come up with

If you're playing along with us doing individual page(s), you guessed it, this challenge all about your pets. No matter what season, they're always ready for a hug and a cute photo or 2. Let's see what you come up with

Default Day 18 - Silent Night - EveryDay December

Week 3 / Challenge 18
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********

Silent Night
Oh...it's time for Christmas Carols as well as the fun songs that play on the radio. Christmas Carols for me represent a more reverent, special time and memories. I grew up going to church and there were always special songs associated with this time of year. My kids also enjoyed every Christmas Eve when we would read the Christmas stories ... after all "Twas the Night before Christmas" ....

If you're doing a December Album, use the lyrics from "Silent Night, Holy Night" for a Special Occasion Page. Ideas could be a church service, a page about your Christmas Lights, Time reading stories, a memory of a special occasion.... Make it sparkle, Keep it Simple (CAS) ...

If you're doing individual page(s) for the challenge, we're scrapping all about the night. Let's see those night time photos. Make it sparkle, keep it simple (CAS)

Over the River and Through the Woods
Ready, Set, GO! It's that time of year that traveling by Planes, Trains or Autos is always hectic and chaotic but getting there is worth it! Whether you're off to see Grandma, Aunt Sally Mae or the beaches at a Mexican Resort...it's good times!

If you're doing a December Album, Travel pages will needs lots of photo spots. Let's get creative and figure out a way to "add photos". You could use additional photo flaps, a smaller page protector that holds some extra photos or make your page all photos and add a slide out tab for journaling.

If you're doing individual page(s) challenge, let's "Travel" Back in time and do a Nov or December "Progressive" Page Challenge. After all, those have Lots of stops. It's your choice if you want to do just 1, maybe 3, think about 3 or do all 4 ... Here's the Links to get you started

You've Got Mail
Tis the season for cards, holiday cards! Did you get yours in the mail? I love to send Christmas Cards! Whether they're store bought or handmade, it's fun to send and receive cards this time of year!

If you're doing a December Album, it's always fun to have a page(s) that highlight your favorite Christmas Cards! It might be the card you made to send or a picture (or even part of or the entire card) of one you received. This is your chance to add it to your DD. Be sure to save space to tell the story about the card you chose.



If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, we're going to use "Cards" as our Inspiration. You have multiple choices! Choice #1, Head on over to the SCS Gallery and select a Card for Inspiration as a "sketch" for your page. Choice #2, You could use the card inspiration design as your journaling box or embellishment (a 4x6 space on your page). Choice #3, You could also add a card you received as memorabilia or Choice #4 Use an envelope and "stamps" for the "mail inspiration" on your page

VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********
We Interrupt this Broadcast ...

Since I just watched ... "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" last night, it seemed only fitting that today's challenge be all about those "Holiday Classics". There are so many good ones ...

If you're doing a December Album, these page(s) are great spaces for stories about your Favorite Christmas Shows. It might be a play, a TV Show or a movie but what's most important is the memory it brings,...



If you're playing along with Individual Challenges, let's use the following "Script" to create our Page(s)
1. Use A Border Around Your Page
2. Add Circles for the "dials"
3. Use one of the following words in your title or journaling
- News
- Sports
- Weather
4. Add numbers to Represent your Channels
5. Use Your Remote as inspiration for your embellishments (i.e. buttons, arrows, words ---Play, Last, Pause, Stop, List, Menu etc)

Default Day 23 - Wrap It Up - EveryDay December

Week 4 / Challenge 23
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec


************************************************** ***********
Wrap It Up

If you're like me and it's December 23, you're probably scurrying around trying to find all of your gift "hiding places" and pulling them out to get them wrapped. I like wrapping up all the gifts unless of course I realize last minute I've forgot something I particularly wanted to get someone OR I can't find the presents I did get, haha! It's time to "wrap it up"


If you're doing a December Album, it's time to make your "wrap it up" page. That could be the page for "wrapping gifts" or it just might be the last page in your DD book for the year. Let's add washi tape to this one since we're inspired by wrapping


If you're playing along with the Individual Challenges, our inspiration is "wrapping". Use (Washi) Tape, Ribbon or Twine and at least one Tag on your page(s) for your "inspired wrapping"

Default Day 24 - String the Lights - EveryDay December

Week 4 / Challenge 24

Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec



************************************************** ***********

String the Lights


One of my favorite things about holidays is the "lights" (it's also why I like Las Vegas!). They are so colorful this time of year ... from lights on the neighborhood houses, lights on the Christmas tree to lights at the Candlelight Service at church ... oh so pretty!

If you're doing a December Album, you just have to have a page(s) for the holiday lights. If you're playing along with us in December, today would be Christmas Eve and maybe a perfect time to tell the story about your favorite lights ... gold accents would be great on this page


If you're playing along with us on the Individual Challenges, use the letters in the word "LIGHTS" as inspiration for your page. For instance, you might choose, L = Lines, I = Ink, G = Green, H = Hidden Journaling, T = Three Photos, S = Stamped Title

Default Day 25 - Hello Christmas! - EveryDay December

Week 4 / Challenge 25
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec



************************************************** ***********
Hello Christmas!


TODAY, it's Day #25 which means if you're playing along with us in December ... It's Christmas! Yay! The holiday is finally here. For many of us, it's a special time to give and receive gifts. Both can be so much fun!


If you're playing along with our December Daily Challenges, this maybe your last page of the book as some folks only do 25 pages ... for others, you still have some pages to go as you do all of December. Since it may be your "Christmas" page, let's use square or presents on this page. You could do square photo boxes, a journaling box that looks like a present OR just plan to add pictures of presents. It will be fun to see the stories you tell about the "gifts"


If you're playing along with our "individual challenge", use one of the sketches attached to create your page. It has squares for the photo boxes (both sketches from Pinterest)

...

It's Bowl Season

Here in the U.S., it's "bowl" season, as in time for College Football to play their championship games... it's what they've worked for all season ... Let the Games Begin!

If you're doing a December Album, you may need a page or 2 for Family Game Time. During the holidays, we're all still competitive, right? Get out the Uno Cards or Monopoly gameboards, haha! You may just have some fun family antics or after dinner photos watching "the big game"
.

If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, let the fun begin with a little competition. Pick a page from the Christmas Scrapbooking Gallery to scraplift! If you're feeling especially inspired, pick more than one

Default Day 27 - Cold Weather Layers - EveryDay December

Week 5 / Challenge 27
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec



************************************************** ***********
Cold Weather Layers

Brrrr....while I love the Holidays, here in the Midwest U.S., December also brings colder temperatures, snow, and ice... all that adds up to well, yuck. Unless you're a kid, than snow is fun. Of course, if you're a winter recreation lover, then this one's for you!

If you're doing a December Album, it's time for "Coats, Hats, Scarves and Mittens" in other word ... layers. Let's create a page(s) that have some additional layers. Maybe they are just for photos, or page flaps needed for extra photos and journaling
.

If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, we're still playing with "layers" ... after all, in cold weather, you can never have too many. For this "Coat, Hat, Scarf, Mittens Challenge" add the following layers to your page (they can simply be photo background layers) --
- Coat -- Add an Embossed Layer
- Hat -- Add a DSP Paper or two Layer
- Scarf -- Add a Layer with a Decorative Edge
- Mittens -- Add a Shaped Layer (i.e. circle, diamond, triangle)

Default Day 28 - If Everyday Could be Christmas - VSBN17NovDec

Week 5 / Challenge 28
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec



************************************************** ***********
"If Every Day Could be Christmas ..."

"...what a wonderful world it would be..." but that's probably only in our minds as it's time to "take down the holiday decor" and finish the returns and pack it all away for next year.

If you're doing a December Album, it's time to "put it all away". There just may be a page or 2 needed for packing it up or the process of returns. Perhaps you have some new decorations to pack up or maybe your hubby like mine complains all the way to the attic and it includes a story or 2 ...


If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, we're wrapping up the VSBN17, it's time for "returns" . For this challenge, do a 2nd page to one of the early challenge pages OR pick one of your fave pages completed and return to it ... as in use the same layout and do it again

We're counting down to the end of the year ... it's almost here. Maybe you're busy making goals and plans for 2018 or maybe you're fondly thinking of all the happy moments of 2017 ...

If you're doing a December Album, this is a good time to add page(s) if you did Advent Calendar Moments or ... you're counting down to end of the month, end of the year... let's see your numbers on these pages
.

If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, the challenge is the countdown! You can do a page with multiple numbers as embellishments or use the Countdown to create your page, i.e. 5 sequins, 4 photos, 3 word title, 2 washi tape strips, 1 dsp

Default Day 30 - Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot - EveryDay December

Week 5 / Challenge 30
Every Day December
VSBN17NovDec



************************************************** ***********
"...Should Old Acquaintance be Forgot..."

"The phrase "for auld lang syne" essentially boils down to "for (the sake of) old times". It's a work which essentially calls for the preservation of our oldest, dearest friendships; perhaps observed in the reflective quality of New Year's Eve itself. A time when people come together to recall past joys and sorrows, specifically those spent in each other's company."

If you're doing a December Album, it's time for creating a page(s) for New Years Eve ... OR another page(s) for the fun time with Friends in the holidays if you're only doing 25 pages in your DD. Make sure you have space for Group Photo


If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, it's time to celebrate our SCS Friendships! Head to your favorites and select a page you've saved to scraplift from one of your SCS scrappy friends. Be sure to mention them in your comments

************************************************** ***********
That's a Wrap

Finish...Done...complete ...Good Bye. Another Year in the Books and our EveryDay December Album is complete and/or we have 31 additional challenges done for 2017! This page is all about Good Bye ...

If you're doing a December Album, perhaps this is the page you write a letter about why you completed a December Album OR this page may just be "Good bye" or the last page of your album. Use your favorite papers and designs to finish this off


If you're playing along with the Individual challenges, create a page that's inspired by these quotes ... all about "Good Bye" or "Hello"...after all, with every ending, there's a beginning.


“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
Brad Paisley

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
Oprah Winfrey

“For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
(Little Gidding)”
T.S. Eliot
