December Daily® 2015 | Day Sixteen

Welcome to  December Daily® 2015 | Day 16. 

Today I'm sharing my Christmas card and including a couple of photos of me working on them along with an idea for embellishing one of the white chipboard trees. 

Here's a look at Day 16 from my  foundation pages post

And here's a look at how Day 16 with my story included: 

As you'll hear me explain in the video, I took out the 2x2 pocket page because I had just used the other one and want to save that one for a day with a story that will fit it better than the one I wanted to tell today. As always, making it work for me just like you should make it work for you

I took this photo of myself by setting my camera on my kitchen counter and setting the self-timer. The top photo shows how I wrote the family's last name large. The "16" was already cut to fit the 2x2 pocket page so I decided to just put that out and use it on my main 4x6 photo. When adding my journaling in Photoshop I saved space for the "16" to fit in the corner. 

In the top right pocket I used three different sticker sheets (that I've been using throughout my album) right on top of one of the white wood veneer trees from the  Main Kit (tree pattern paper is also from the Main Kit). I used scissors and an xacto knife to trim the edges. I love how that turned out. So fun

My card this year is from  Minted. I've used them for the last few years and have always been really happy with the quality. 

To add it to my album I simply used my Crop A Dile to punch holes. I left the back blank. I might add something to it for Day 17 or I might just leave it as it is. 

The quote I added to the top in red is from Denis Waitley and says, " Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude." It's a quote I hand-wrote earlier this year as part of my #givesunday series which you can download here

Here's a look at the spread outside the album:

    Love that card. Have heard great things about Minted but mostly I love the fun summer-y photo for a holiday card. I always feel like our cards HAVE to be wintry but hey – why not send some sunshine-y cheer instead?

    As always, LOVE.

    "Love the power of words to connect people together." I love that, and it's so true, isn't it? And the Christmas tree shape with the word stickers is so awesome and clever. That did turn out great. Michelle t. ETA... hoping you feeling better soon, like today.
