Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Five.
Yesterday the kids got an email from my Mom that I just loved and knew immediately I would use it for my story/journaling today. I knew it all day until I was finally able to work on it at 9pm last night. It's not my favorite time to make stuff but once I got into it I was so happy to have the story recorded for the day (and since Simon doesn't have school today he got to stay up and keep my company).
Bring on the sparkly gold!
Here's a look at Day Five:
Day Five includes 3, 3x4 pockets and a strip of vellum for my journaling (size is 4 x 8.5). The font is Remington Noiseless.
Just a shot of it outside the album. I was photographing this late at night again and it helped to take the elements out of the page protectors to reduce the glare.
I liked balancing the long journaling with the photo my Mom included in the email and two decorative 3x4 cards.
I love including other people's voices in my projects: emails, letters, stuff the kids write down, etc.
This journaling was printed on Worldwin vellum. Why vellum? Why not. This one is not as transparent as some vellum I've used in the past but it was what I had on hand and adds a nice change in texture in the album.
Along the edge I added an Avery label - partly just to counter the curl that was happening with the vellum and partly because I so love those labels.
Here I used the "December" stamp from the Studio Calico kit with black Memento ink (love that ink) on top of one of the printable labels. The big heart was cut from a digital file (December Daily™ 3x4 Sentiment Boxes) when I made my foundation pages - it's actually an "extra" but came in handy here. The 5 is from a set of American Crafts 25 Days Gold Foil Chipboard numbers - these don't look great on the product preview online but are awesome in person.
I used my Brother sewing machine to stitch these in place.
Hope you have a great day!
