December Daily™ 2013 | Day Three


Welcome to December Daily™ 2013 | Day Three.

One thing to remember with this project is that every day doesn't have to be multiple pages. Every day doesn't have to be about holiday stuff either. It can be a single photo or it can be three pages or more of photos. Make it work for your life.

I like taking advantage of the opportunity to take a deep breath with this album - a chance to pause and make sure I'm savoring the season like I intend to throughout the month. Writing helps me to get to that place and you can read my journaling below.

Here's a look at Day Three:


I used one of the 6x8 overlays on top of the enlarged photo of my house as dusk.

Here's what it looked like in Photoshop right before printing:


You can see a tutorial on working with overlays like this one here. This tutorial uses overlays from a couple years ago but the steps and ideas are the same.

After printing I added three of the plastic starburst elements + a sequin + a small gold enamel dot around the page (all from the Studio Calico kit):


I love simple embellishments like this in groups of three. Initially I used a Martha Stewart Glue Pen to adhere the starbursts but the glue ended up showing on the bottom two (because of the dark background). To cover that up I added the sequin with a mini-glue dot and then the gold enamel dot on top.

JOURNALING | So love this season of twinkle lights. The weather report is calling for a possibility of snow. Let it snow. Around here today we are engaged in our regular routines of work and school and planning to put up and decorate our Christmas tree tonight. Anna loved pulling all the Christmas books out of one of the tubs this morning and her first thought when she woke up was where Starlight (the elf) was located and could she please open Day Three of her Lego Advent calendar. I love December mornings. Lots of fun things for my two loves to look forward to when they wake up.  I’m also considering putting up more lights along the roof.
