Time to do some catching up again on this album. Apologies for the poor photography. Not only is it gloomy dark all day here in Leeds but I’ve also had printer issues so the photos I’m printing are not coming out great. Hope to solve that soon.
Here’s a look at day six as it was.
I had a cut down page protector along with a full sized 6 x 8 page with a piece of white card inside the pocket.
I added the story using stamps and a grey ink then moved the number six from the full sized page over to the top of the story card.
I continued the story on the back of the white cardstock and added a few gems. I printed a 5 x 7 photo and added it to a cut down page protector. I used washi tape to seal the bottom cut and added an Avery tab with ‘joy is’ a stamp from the Storytelling with December Daily® class.
On the back I used a photo of my niece and a digital file, again from the Storytelling with December Daily® class. I chose a pale beige colour for the digital print and added a wood veneer star. That tab got three red stars added to this side.
Day seven begins with the pocket page I had sewn into smaller pockets. Here’s what it looked like before.
I added the number seven to a piece of card and wrote a few words about the story for the day.
On the back of that card I stamped a calendar from Tim Holtz. I’ve had that stamp set years and it serves me well every December.
I printed a 6 x 8 photo of my Mum, niece and I and added an embossed stamp ‘we are family’ some white rub-ons and another little wood veneer star.
The back of that is another 6 x 8 photo of christmas lights and our feet. You can’t really see out feet in the photo above. I wanted to document the three of us in a different was and also this shows that my niece had chipped a bone in her foot and so was walking on crutches and had one sock on and one off! Good to capture those little things…..
The digital word brush was again from the Storytelling with December Daily® class. Love that big white type.
I added a kraft envelope into the album for day eight.
I needed to get a few things down on paper and an envelope is a great place to tuck more personal things away into.
But having said that I used the back of the envelope to reiterate again the importance of seeing the joy even on hard days.
Love that red ink, one of Tim Holtz I think fired brick, and again a couple of stamps from the Storytelling class ‘this’ and ‘December’ along with alpha stamps from my stash in two fonts. The word JOY is alpha stickers. Kraft and red be still my heart!
Okay getting there slowly.
