December Daily™ 2013 | Day Six


Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Six.

Seriously awesome snow day here. Snow is not something that happens every year so when it does everything pretty much stops.

This year it snowed all day. It’s snowing as I type up this post.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Here’s my Day Six:


I decided to do a single enlarged photo (measures 7.25 x 8.5) of Anna out in the backyard. I actually took a bunch of photos today that I’m considering adding to the back – lots of what was happening around the house. I might do that tomorrow.


On top of the photo I added “bring on the snow” which was cut with the Silhouette using vellum and stitched onto the photo.


Around the outside edge of the photo I used the thin washi tape from the Studio Calico kit. I added journaling around the edge as well.

    Totally did not think to add this size photo – need to think outside the page protector! Snow… all day… sounds magical.

    30 years on and I still miss snow in December. This is awesome. Love the tongue hanging out. My favourite bit!

    Fantastic photo and I can imagine if it doesn’t happen every year when it does it must really feel like Christmas hence the song “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas”. Here in Australia it’s about 32 degrees 98 F so snow is not something I think of at Christmas time. Mind you in Victoria outside of Melbourne in the mountains it snowed last week but in the same week it was 32-36 degrees (90-96 F). Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

    I bet you just couldn’t wait to do this! Perfect photo, and what you’ve done is so lovely. I hope that snow makes it over the mountains to us! :-)

    Adorable photo of Anna with her tongue out. Going to need to remember the silhouette cut with vellum – love the look.

    My Day 6 looks a little similar with the enlarged photo and snow.

    Love it! Great picture with all the white and the pop of red from her in addition to the just plain cuteness of her catching snowflakes. :)

    Wow! Love the snow. We missed the snow by 30 miles. It snowed from Olympia on down I5 south. Great layout today.

    Loved seeing your photos on Instragram yesterday. Having moved from Salem OR, I know what you mean about the snow! :-)

    I am really liking that Washi tape.

    Christine said…

    I’m loving the washi tape edges on the photos. Definitely going to try that. Thanks for a new idea.

    Love this photo!!!!

    I really like the idea of using washi tape to border the pics. An idea that will work for many a LO, not just holiday time.

    Do you print on matte photo paper or glossy? Also how do the pictures hold up compared to printing at a costco or shutter fly? Just wondering if you have noticed any fading in past years?

    Both my friend and I have your December Daily™ 2013 6×8 Journal Cards And Overlays (EL465204) and the December Daily™ 2013 4×6 Journal Cards and Overlays (EL676843).

    The problem is that we can’t use them as overlays over photos (as you did in day 3 of your December Daily). The frame and date are merged with the background and there’s no way of separating them). I have used your overlays before a number of times and this has never happened before. I think the problem is that they are downloaded only as png or pdf files.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Your page is absolutely gorgeous (as always)!! And I am jealous of your snow…here in NY where we should have some, we barely got any + haven’t had any stick.

    I just realized I just received as a gift the same sewing machine that you linked, and I am trying to learn how to use it on layouts (I used to sew, so I know the basics for using it on fabric). I was wondering if you have any problems sewing over embellishments + what types of things you can and can’t sew over? I’ve seen people sew on all sorts of things [i.e. wood veneers] but I’m scared it will break the needle/not fit under the foot. Do you have any tips? Thanks!!

    Love the journalling round the photo. What is the best pen for this?

    Wow, so cute :)
    I love the title right over the picture, and the stitching adds just a nice little extra touch :)
