December Daily™ 2012 | Day Four

Before leaving for my trip I made a fold-out insert for my album using three pieces of 4x6 cardstock + washi tape (tape along both sides of the seams where the papers meet).

Along one edge I created a pocket with an page protector (a larger one) to hold some of the word veneer alphabet from the Studio Calico kit (used my sewing machine to create the pocket). I saw someone else do something similar recently via Twitter (creating a home for the wood letters within a page protector but I can't remember who it was - if it was you please let me know). I didn't end up making it tight enough so they have moved around a bit, but I'm going with it (I used the pointed end of a paint brush to slide the letters in the pocket).

On the top I adhered a test cut I did with my Silhouette using the font Bebas and the sentiments "merry and bright" and "peace and love."

Here's what it ended up looking like after I added the photos (I used a Walgreens app on my phone to upload my photos and picked them up at one close to my hotel):

The far right side slips into the page protector and the other two pieces are folded on the outside.

And the other side:
