December Daily® – Day Nine to Day Fifteen

Here we go with a few more days.

As a reminder day nine looked like this in my foundation pages. It was a four pocket page.

I went with a combination of two photos, one of Buddy and one of my Christmas play list,  a print out of some lyrics and a 3×4 journal card. The story that goes with the lyrics. I had made that journal card earlier in the month and used a musical notes stamp. I thought that music would feature at some point in December and it turned out to be perfect for this story. Love that gold embossed look.

Day ten is a no photo page. This also uses a couple of pre-made 3 x 4 cards both in gold and tells the story of how I went to a carol service at a local church. I added the programme from the service into the album too.

The star card was made using gold leaf that I have had in my stash for years and the other card used a polka dot stamp that I gold embossed.

Day eleven was originally a 3 pocket page, two 4×4 and a 2×4. However, I had a 6×8 photo for day twelve so decided to lay out day eleven as if it was inside the original style page protector but was actually just adhered to the back of the day Twelve enlarged photo.

Here is that large photo for day twelve. I typed up the journaling onto the photograph in photoshop before I printed. I found that it printed ok too. Still having issues with darker pictures but not sold on the quality of the local photo place. I going to try printing at home and just work with the darker images. Not ideal but better than not completing the project as I go.

I adore the enlarged pictures and white type.

You can see day thirteen in the image above. Another no photo page and using a spotty transparency with thirteen added to that.

I used a 5×7 envelope wrote a few words on a sheet of paper and popped them inside. I added a stamped image and the gold large arrow paperclip to the outside of the envelope.

Here is what day fourteen looked like originally.

I moved the page protector to the right of the envelope and put that kraft and gold star card a little further on in the album.

‘Tradition’ is hand written with a gold sharpie, the number is a stamp and the black negative circle is punched from black velvet effect paper. The photo is a selfie of me and the advent calendar.

Here is what day fifteen looked like in the foundation pages.

But was now a three pocket page. I found a 3×4 journal card that said around the house and felt like it was a good time to document some of the festive scenes around here.

The right page is a cut down 4 pocket page. I added some letter stickers to two of the photos and a label to the 4×6. A few star brads completed this spread.

And there we are caught up a little bit more.
