December Daily™ 2013 | Day Nine & Studio AE Blog Hop From Technique Tuesday


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.

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