December Daily 2009 : Day 15

DAY FIFTEEN

15_DD_!

I love these envelopes from Paper Source. Here's what I have tucked inside: 

15_DD_folded 
Lovely red pattern paper is from Jenni Bowlin's December kit. Red glitter star is from Prima. Circle 15 is from Every Jot And Tittle

Inside Day 15 is a sheet I printed out and folded featuring bits of visual inspiration I have been keeping track of on Tumblr – most of it happens to be season right now.

At first I slipped it all the way inside the envelope but then decided that I liked the look of it with the inside peeking out (and the star was in just the right place).

    Love your use of simple red and white papers void of busy patterns.

    I love that you included “inspiration”!! I may have to lift your idea! I have a computer folder where I keep inspirational photos from here and there. I’m certain there are a few that show your work. They’re grouped according to seasons. It would be fun to have them in my album to inspire me next year as I read and reread my 2009 December Daily!!

    This is really really cool. I would never have thought of using an envelope that way. Thanks so much for all the holiday inspiration!

    I have an envelope reserved for after Christmas that I plan to place grocery receipts, cost of day-to-day living things (cell phones, gas, milk, cars, newspaper, satellite). I think this will be interesting to look on years from now. I also used one for our letters to Santa which is one of my favorite days so far!

    I am so in love with layouts that incorporate envelopes. And the things you stuff in yours are always surprising, and never fail to inspire.

    Ali, tumblr looks awesome and putting your bits there is so cool. I made an account but it looks nothing like your page…any quick hints to keep it simple and just load pics there like that?

    I’ve been following your posts and work for a while now and I thank you for sharing your creativity with so many of us who enjoy it and need it. This post led me to tumblr. I opened an acct this morning and hope to follow one of your suggestions which was to create a blog to capture those moments (in words) I hope to scrapbook later. Great idea! I have two boys and a full time job. Balancing my husband’s offset schedule against mine leaves very little time to remember what we did when I took that picture,esp when I scrap it a month later! Thanks again!
