Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Nine and the December Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday.

Technique Tuesday offers a monthly stamp club that features a limited edition stamp set designed by me each month. You can check out past stamp sets (some are still available) here.

Say hello to this month's stamp set: Great Memory

Here's a look at how I used one of these stamps in my Day Nine spread:

AE_DD2013_Day9_spread

Day Nine has two pages - one 4-pocket (all 3x4) and one 3-pocket (2, 3x4 and 1, 4x6).

My story today is simply a round up of a few photos from the last few days from around the house - little looks at things happening around here.

Page one includes a title card, a weather print out from my phone and a photo of hot cocoa for the kids.

To create the title card I stamped and embossed using Green Metallic Zing the stamp with the word "life" onto white cardstock. In the rectangle space I added a gold number 9

On each of the photos I added a cut piece from a Project Life 3x4 Grid Card (cut off tops and bottoms of cards to add to each photo) + a starburst + a sequin + a brad + a word cut from the blue word pattern paper (from the Studio Calico kit).

I like repetition.

These weather screenshots are a really fun way to add some "real-life" to your pages. To take a screenshot on an iPhone hold down the circle button and click the power button. The image is then saved to your camera roll.

From there I open the image in Photoshop and crop it to 3x4 (at 300dpi) and place it on a 4x6 canvas with another 3x4 photo before printing on a 4x6 sheet of photo paper using an Epson Picturemate Show. Check out a video tutorial on placing two 3x4 images on a 4x6 canvas here.

The second page features two more 3x4 photos and a transparent 4x6 with "merry & bright" stitched straight across. You can read more about how I set up my foundation pages here (this one was created in advance when I made a bunch of transparent pages all at once).

I set up a chair and a blanket for George to sit by our back window after I filled up the bird feeder. He liked that.

    I also like repetition. I have added the weather screen shot to my list of possibilities for my December Daily album. Love those stamps sets, totally a stamper myself - a stamp set that can be used through to 2018, amazing value!

    Love the green embossing with the gold number. Your cat George so reminds me of my first cat, who passed away many years ago at the age of 16. His sister lived to be 18. By now, we have 6 Greek cats who all adopted us. Even the shy one decided recently that he might as well take his naps inside instead of staying out in the rain and cold LOL.
