December Daily® 2017 – Day One to Day Three

Hello and welcome to the first few days of this December Daily® album.

I added an intention page at the front of the album. I wasn’t going to but so many thoughts were rattling around in my mind I thought it was better to get them out and down on paper, plus I know I will be thankful that I did in years to come.

As I said the other day I have been embracing the gold and I used some new alphabet stickers on this page mixed with two washi tapes and the writing done on my vintage type writer. Typing on that machine is always imperfect but I am ok with that. (I typed remember at least twice and misspelled every time!)

I did move that twelve pocket page to further along in the month.

Also having a little issue with my photo printer so the colours are off in these first pages. I intend to fix it and re-print the images.

For day one I used a photo of my feet on our snowy lawn. This is a large picture and not contained in a page protector as it is the reverse of the intention page. I added the story to the photo before printing. When I re-print I’ll reduce the size of the font on the writing and I’ll also add a number one off to one side of the image.

Here is what day two and three looked like.

I removed one of the page protectors and had day two on the right side of the album opposite day one. I also used some velum to hold the number tag and added handwritten journalling to a plain white card adhered to a card from the One Little Bird mini kit I got in the sale. The ‘today’s’ stamp is from an Ali Edwards set and the ‘stories’ is from a Kelly Purkey one.

So day three moved to the left of the next page and contains the story of our girls crafting afternoon.

The three circle was cut down so it fit behind the circle for day two and I hand wrote a little label and adhered it to the 4 x 6 photo along with a star brad.

Simple and done!

On to the next….

    Mel you are off to a great start. I don’t have a home photo printer but I am remembering to capture the story of the day, this year I don’t want to play catchup on that part of DD. Here on the blog your Day 1 photo looks blue which is a perfect reflection of the snow, it gave me a feeling of chilly snow.
