Welcome to December Daily® 2015 | Day 08.
Part of making your own magic includes setting stuff up in order to have it actually happen. In my foundation pages I used the "Let's read a Christmas story" card from the Emily Ley mini kit as a reminder to make it happen - which wasn't too hard since I knew it was something we would do anyway, but I bet you get the idea.
Also, check out my fun 12 Days Of Giving information below to see how you can download free holiday word art as a gift from me to you.
Here's a look at Day 08 from my foundation pages post (in that post I talk about how I embossed the number 8 using a star stamp and white embossing powder):
And here's how it ended up looking with the story and photo:
I moved things around this time by removing the 4-pocket page protector and just using the back of Day 07. This story fit just fine in these three pockets along with the addition of the flip up card.
PS: I can't wait to play with Day 09. Circles here we come.
Something I've done the last few years is include flip-ups and/or flip-outs to make space for my stories or additional photos. We talked more about this in the Storytelling With December Daily® workshop (which is still open in case you wanted to dive in to that content) - it's a simple and easy way to make sure you don't skimp on the words. Washi tape for the win.
The "A" and the "6" are from an old Studio Calico kit - no idea which one it was (if you know feel free to mention it in the comments). They are plastic rectangles and I've been holding on to the alphabet & numbers waiting for a good reason to use them. Today was the day. Love the red. The "A" is for Anna and the "6" is because that's how old she is right now.
Here's a look at it outside the album:
