December Daily™ 2011 | Day Five (+ Layered Template Video Tutorial)

Welcome to December Daily™ 2011 | Day Five.

One of my favorite themes for December Daily™ is an "Around The House" spread with photos of decorations. It would be fun to see just this page compared with past years to see what's changed and what's remained the same.

For my story today I used one of the templates in my December Daily™ Layered Template 6x8.5 package paired with an enlarged photo and journaling on the second page.

(Sorry about the color quality of these images - it's challenging to get the colors correct when I photograph them in the evenings.)

Here's a look at the page created using one of the layered templates:

I put together a quick (12 minute) tutorial about my process for working with these layered templates (specifically this set but the information can be used for working with any layered templates).

Here's what the first page looked like before printing:

The white digital cardstock I used in the background is from this set: Michaela Solids.

After printing out the layered template I added the letters for JOY using American Crafts Hollyday Elf Thickers. The little black stars are some older Jenni Bowlin rub ons (came in a package that had arrows with words on the inside and the stars were between the arrow + word combos).

Here's a look at at the second page:

That "peace" tag was from my Christmas stash. I'm thinking it was from Ormolu?

Pattern paper strip along the bottom is American Crafts Hollyday Red Suit with Glitter Accents.

Between these two pages is a divided page protector insert.

In the top two pockets I added a piece of transparency with a Jenni Bowlin arrow rub on and a button from Evalicious.

The outline stars (found in my Silhouette library - thinking they came with it?) were cut with the Silhouette.

I chose not to do anything on the back of the pieces in this divided page protector.

Here's a look at the pages inside the album:
