December Daily™ 2012 | Day Sixteen + Day Seventeen

Combining Days Sixteen and Seventeen today for a couple reasons:

(1) I was a day behind. Hello December.

(2) I used a Martha Stewart Crafts Punch All Over the Page Starry Sky Punch with two journal card pages back to back and it made sense to show it all together.

Here's Day Sixteen:

Always have to include something about the Advent Calendars - a much loved tradition in our house. This year we have the Star Wars Lego calendar and the Playmobile Princess Wedding set.

Vellum arrows and the tabbed piece of paper (pattern was on the other side) are from the Studio Calico December Daily™ kit. Letter stickers are from Crate Paper.

And you can guarantee that I'm pretty happy that my Paperwhites are close to blooming.

One of my recent purchases is this Martha Stewart Crafts Punch All Over the Page Starry Sky Punch. I wanted to use it in this project and I wanted to use it to create a see-through section.

The solution was to line up two 4x6 journal cards back to back and punch through them. Love it. Here's the front side:

And the back side. I didn't adhere these two cards together, just punched them at the same time to get the correct location.

Here's Day Seventeen:

This quotation was just too darn funny to pass up.

"Celebrate This" white glitter banner is from KI Memories.

This is what she was singing on the way to school. I added the text in Photoshop before printing. That great sequin star is from Heidi Swapp.

Here's a link of all my days so far for 2012:

    I absolutely love what you did with the punch! Also, the quote, perfectly magical. I have a three year old daughter and I think our daughters would get along quite nicely. ;-)

    I love that you have included that story. Kids are so SURE at this age. My son (when he was about this age) said "Mommy? Why is there soap in the sleigh?" Not knowing what he meant I asked him to elaborate - tell me more. He replied "You know 'Dashing thru the snow, in a one horse 'soap and sleigh'......" :)

    I really am loving how you have made your 4x6 album this year. Gives me some ideas for next year since it looks like its so much easier to keep up with.

    My first thought when I had seen this page is did Anna mean the foul smells coming from the garbage can. I thought wow, she's very smart! Not that your garbage is stinky, but a very cute memory page to have for years later. One of my favorites so far!

    Oh the singing! I remember my son singing Away in a Manger, and starting the second verse with "the cattle are lonely, . . . " so much fun to remember! That's what daily memory keeping is all about!
