December Daily 2011 | The Foundation Pages, Part Two

Today I'm sharing my second set of December Daily pages for 2011.

You can view my first set here (I highly recommend reading that post before you start on this one).

I added a link widget to the bottom of this post for you to share a link to your foundation pages. I can't wait to start seeing them come together!

You can view all my images so far (shown in the image above) on Flickr.

And just a reminder, to me this album really comes alive in December when the words and the photos are added (and a few more decorations and bits of life). I can't wait for the opportunity to savor the days of December and document those stories again.

DAY TWO

The awesome letterpress number coasters arrived. I've been looking forward to playing with these numbers in my album. These are included with the Studio Calico kit. After finishing my foundation pages I've got three numbers left over that I'll work into my pages during December.

I used my sewing machine to stitch the coaster right on top of the Hambly transparency + ribbon combination.

On the page opposite the Day Two page (I look at them as a spread) I added one of the cool calendar pages that's also included with the kit. These are thick chipboard pages with a place for notes along the bottom. For this one I trimmed off the notes section and used Hero Arts alpha stamps and Jenni Bowlin Cough Syrup ink to add the numbers.

I'm thinking I might just keep that "loose" within the page protector and be able to pull it out and add to it throughout the month. I used a sentiment from my Studio AE November 2011 stamp set along the top (this is the same one I used on the outside of my album cover).

DAY FIVE


December Daily 2011 | Foundation Pages

Five little glittered stars in one pocket (those were from Prima) + a number five coaster.

To trim the 5 I just laid it on my paper trimmer and cut back and forth a few times.

For this one I punched a circle from one of the chipboard calendars, added a chipboard accent (#12) from the Echo Park chipboard set, stamped using the Hero Arts alpha stamps, and stitched in place.

I did have to punch it twice to get it to go all the way through.

A COUPLE NOTES



  • Hambly has added a page to their site with a selection of transparencies that are great for December Daily.


  • PRINTING | I received this message from Stephanie Beeson Bryan via Facebook: Hey Ali! I just wanted to let you know that I contacted Persnickity Prints today about printing your 6x8.5 layered templates for this years DD. They said the print could be uploaded to an 8x10 canvas so it wouldn't try to make you crop the image and that they would even trim to size too. Wow! Thought maybe some of your other followers who are using a print service might find this helpful!! I know I will definitely be using them!!!

  • 12x12 layered templates and 8.5x11 overlays should be available next week at Designer Digitals (not this weekend). I'm hoping to wrap them up this weekend.
