Hello December. Hello December Daily® we are so happy to be embarking on this project once more. Today I’d like to share the 1st and 2nd.
A reminder of what I’d put together in advance. A two pocket page with a Tim Holtz metal number and some fantastic star paper that I bought at a local craft shop.
I moved the paper up to the top pocket and added a punched glittered paper circle behind the tag. That red glitter paper has shown up in these albums for years. I adore it.
The story is about giving my Mum an advent calendar with tea light candles inside each door. The gift of light as I say on the card. I was pretty pleased with this gift and hope to cheer her December a little. It also reminded me, as I wrote the story out, that I too need to look for the light so I added that on the journal card as well. I love that I have that photo of her hands close up. She’d hate it but I find it quite lovely. Her rings and the way she holds her hands. Love it!
And the second of December. A stamped 2 and some patterned paper.
This was one of those funny little stories and the fact that the big stamped title rhymes is a bonus. Ali has used this look on some of her past pages and I like it a lot.
I added a coffee sleeve that I got earlier on in the season (they’ve run out of these now) and wrote the story above and below the sleeve. A wooden star and label with the word ‘traditions’ stamped from this set finished off the page.
So we are off!
