December Daily™ 2011 | Day Eleven

Welcome to December Daily™ 2011 | Day Eleven.

We are in full Christmas swing around here with many of our favorite traditions (and a few new ones) seeming to happen all at once - seeing Santa, getting the tree, decorating the tree, writing letters. It's such good stuff.

For me it usually means lots of photos. And lots of full-page photos in the context of this album.

Right now, that's what I want most.

Along the bottom of my first page photo I added word art from my Messy Little Christmas set (that's another one that would likely work great with the Silhouette).

Simple journaling up along the top.

I definitely had more photos I wanted to include today so I ended up printing out two that were 4 inches x 8.5 inches, adhering them back to back, and then stitching them to the transparent overlay I'd already put together for Day 11.

Here's a look at the two photos:

And then stitching them to the transparent insert:

I stapled the photo to the ribbon/transparency at the top and the bottom before running it through the sewing machine (trying to keep it in place).

At the top of each of the photos I added an embellishment from the My Minds Eye Lost And Found Christmas chipboard set (cut off the circle part of the "E").

Here's the other side in the album and a close up on the chipboard embellishment:

The second page of the spread is a collage of photos from tree-decorating.

I love the mix of close-up and entire-room shots.

Just a few small embellishments added here - word stickers and kraft stars.
