December Daily™ 2012 | Day Four

Before leaving for my trip I made a fold-out insert for my album using three pieces of 4x6 cardstock + washi tape (tape along both sides of the seams where the papers meet).

Along one edge I created a pocket with an page protector (a larger one) to hold some of the word veneer alphabet from the Studio Calico kit (used my sewing machine to create the pocket). I saw someone else do something similar recently via Twitter (creating a home for the wood letters within a page protector but I can't remember who it was - if it was you please let me know). I didn't end up making it tight enough so they have moved around a bit, but I'm going with it (I used the pointed end of a paint brush to slide the letters in the pocket).

On the top I adhered a test cut I did with my Silhouette using the font Bebas and the sentiments "merry and bright" and "peace and love."

Here's what it ended up looking like after I added the photos (I used a Walgreens app on my phone to upload my photos and picked them up at one close to my hotel):

The far right side slips into the page protector and the other two pieces are folded on the outside.

And the other side:

    That fold out page is amazing! Isn't NYC incredible this time of year. I was planning to be there at this time but it didn't quite work out so I am living vicariously through you!

    Love your day 4! Great idea using the wood veneers in a sewed little page protector pocket. Have to remember that when I hopefully get a sewing machine from santa this year ;)

    I have a young friend that works at the Apple Store in NY! Her name is Danielle. One day maybe I will make it up there. Love the fold out page and the cut out words. I wonder if you could cut that wood veneer paper from Creative Imaginations with an electronic cutter? Might have to try that.

    This is such a neat idea to solving where to put extra pictures. I'm trying to figure out where your journaling card goes? Thanks for sharing this!

      It goes on the left side and the fold-out is on the right side.

    Ali~ if you have time, walk through the fashion district and pop in and out of the trims, buttons, and fabrics stores. Great inspiration and a total color/texture/energy buzz. ;0
