Hey friends I am back with a look at Day 3 and 4 of my December Daily Album! Today you get two for the price of one!
December 3rd was seemingly uneventful. After spending the day shopping for Christmas decorations, my family and I headed to a local community holiday festival. We saw two of the cutest baby reindeer, took pictures in front of a gigantic Christmas tree, and walked around a bit. I love community events and always attend at least 2-3 during the holiday season.
For this spread, I decided to keep things simple. First, I created a B-side to my day two 3×8 journal block using a wood grain pattern paper from the Felicity Jane Joy kit. To this I added a chipboard sticker that reads “Reindeer”. Next, I created a tag from a piece Swiss dot pattern paper. I stamped and embossed a reindeer head from an older December Daily stamp set by Kelly Purkey and added a label sticker under the embossed reindeer head. This sticker is from the 2016 December Daily kit.
On the back of the tag, I added journaling, a stamp that reads “Christmas Cheer” and a small wood veneer star from the Felicity Jane Joy kit.
Lastly, I added a wood veneer “3” to the outside of my photo pocket to complete the spread.
Day 4 was all about decorating our Christmas tree! And yes, that is my daughter wearing a Disney Belle dress and her blanket as a cape. 🙂
To begin, I resized my photo to 6×8 using iPhoto, then printed the photo on 8.5 x 11 photo paper and trimmed the photo down to fit the pocket. To the photo I added a gold chipboard circle sticker that reads “Tree” at the top right of the page protector.
Next, I embellished two of the 3×4 journal cards with a flare button, a wood veneer number “4” and a small star badge – all from the Felicity Jane Joy Kit. To the journal card, I stamped the word “tradition” from an older Ali Edwards stamp set using “Always Artichoke” ink by Stampin’ Up. Lastly, I added a 3×4 journaling card that reads, “Peace Love Joy”.
To the back of the 6×8 page, I added a photo of my finished tree to a piece of black striped velum paper and created a small embellishment cluster with a tag that reads “Merry & Bright”, a scalloped die cut, and three puffy stars.
To add a bit of interest, I cut one panel from a Bath and Body Works holiday bag. To the back of the panel, I created a repetitive stamped design using the Joy Stamp set from Felicity Jane
To see both these spreads come together, head on over to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel! I will be back after December 25th with more videos and photos of my 2017 December Daily album. Until then, have a very Merry Christmas! Thanks for stopping by!
