This 2017 year will be my 4th year to do December Daily (by ali edwards) I have been doing a mishmash of whatever i liked the looks of BUT this year im thinking greens but I need ideas and input on how to actually choose a color theme and if green is a good idea !! I like green and the paper im hoping to get here is perfect (2 sets are greenish) so what am i missing how do i know if this is the way to go ? i plan on purchasing some things here in November so I need to know before the 3rd of November !! THank you for reading -- last year i did pastels and it looked awesome !!! thanks
I like to change up the color scheme on my Christmas albums as well.
I'd check out the store here for ideas looking at Christmas paper collections. You can also take a look at displays in stores and wrapping papers for ideas on color schemes.
I saw a Christmas paper collection at a LSS last weekend that had greens and blues with silver. It was very pretty.
I typically buy a paper pack so I know the colors coordinate and I will use it up. If a whole pack is not in the budget, get a few sheets and coordinate them with solids.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

You like green. It's a Christmasy color. You like the paper. I don't think you're missing anything; those are exactly how you know this is the way to go.
Ok-- thanks u guys for helping me to see i was already there i mean I see what yall are saying -- I tend to love real light like pastels and real dark colors and this green pack here (2) have both i believe !!!
Yall take care and ill try and figure out how to upload with my new phone !!!!
I think a monochromatic book can look really awesome and clean! The nice thing with the green is if you do accents with wood plank paper or gold, silver or white it will all go nicely!
You can never go wrong with what inspires you!
Greens are great but i think im going pastels bc i like them much more and i have selected (from sb.com) a pink binder 6x8 album (so cute) cant wait till Christmas !!
I saw something today at starbucks --
the anticipation is all the fun (something like that ) it really hit home with me it was on a box up ahead of where we were sitting !!! yes i had a coffee drink -- caramel pecan latte (good) but next time im going back for the traditinal pumpkin spice latte !!
I am doing a hybrid on the theme of December Daily. Mine will be a Blessing Book for Thanksgiving tied into the Any Thing Goes Monthly Challenge here as well as a challenge on SCS that has a daily "theme" to interpret anyway you want and work into the pages, like
making a list
Gratitude, blessed, grateful
time for trees
Those you can often do for both holidays....
Then on Thanksgiving I will have family members writing their thoughts observations and I will be in charge of the picture taking. The plan is to have a book each year to look back thru each year.
This is my first year making one.
