Welcome to December Daily® 2015 | Day Six.
I love including other voices in my album - today I'm doing that in the form of an email from my Mom that I formatted to fit on the back of the tag from Day 05.
In the video today I show you my step-by-steps as well as how to use the joy/stars silkscreen + paint that was included with the Main Kit and how I'm using the Fuse Tool for closing off some of my page protector pockets.
Here's a look at Day 06 from my foundation pages post:
And here's a look at Day 06 after including my story and making other adjustments:
As I mentioned above, the story for Day 06 is an email from my Mom that I received in the morning. I loved how she talked about some of the things she's thankful for (a nice addition after my own list of thankfulness for Day 05).
I copied and pasted the body of my Mom's email into an Illustrator file (you can use Photoshop, Word, etc) keeping in mind that the tag was 4 inches wide x 8 inches tall. The font is Remington Noiseless. After printing I used Super Sticky Red Tape to adhere the letter to the back of the tag and trimmed off the excess cardstock from around the edges.
To get the silver stars on the tag I used the silkscreen + the silver paint from the Main Kit (watch the video for a tutorial on how to use the screens). On top I added a metal-rimmed circle tag that I had put together when I did my foundation pages. I cut it in half using scissors from Tim Holtz.
At the top I used some great red + white twill ribbon from Paper Source to finish off the tag.
I decided to cut the 2 inch x 2 inch pocket page down to one strip of four pockets. I added a silver glitter star from the Main Kit and then added an Avery Indext Tab along the edge with stamped sentiments from the Holiday Circles stamp set.
Here's a look at the pages outside the album:
Think about the different ways that you could include another person's voice in your album. Emails, notes, things children bring home from school, stories you ask someone else to write, etc.
