WELCOME TO DECEMBER DAILY 2010.
Even with all the preparation leading up to today I still can't really believe we are underway again.
For the first page in this album, just like in 2009, I chose to write a bit about our Advent calendars. Simon and Anna were both super excited to find new Advent calendars on the table. This is one of the things I love seeing in my December Daily from year to year - the repetition of traditions.
With the addition of the cover page (free download offered yesterday - grab it here) I decided to include a new transparent page (the star page - you can see it in the before image at the bottom of this post - is still the first page in the album) using a silver script transparency from Hambly. The "1" on top of the transparency is from The Girl's Paperie.
Before printing the 6x8 photo page (2, 4x6 photos on a 6x8 canvas) I added a Christmas twill across the middle.
The second page features a piece of packaging I cut out from the Playmobil Advent Calendar. This one had extra packaging vs. the Lego package - I would have cut that one up too if I could!
Using a sheet of cardstock that was twice as tall as the Playmobile packaging I created a "lift-up" page to include more room for journaling by folding it in half and adhering the Playmobile packaging to the front.
Here's what it looked like after I added my journaling.
I stitched around the inside to give a bit more of a "home" for the words and stamped a simple title using the Basic Uppercase letter stamps from Hero Arts. The little image of the Lego Advent Calendar was printed from Lego.com.
Here's a look at the before image:
