Welcome to December Daily® 2015 | Day 02.
Today in the process video you'll get to see me change my mind and adjust course mid-way resulting in a Photoshop tutorial included below about how to adjust the December Stories Vol. 2 6x8 layered templates to 3x4. All in a days work. Ha. If you are interested in why I make the choices I make I highly encourage you to check out the process videos where I speak a lot freer than I do in these posts.
As a reminder, here's what Day 02 looked like as a foundation page:
And here's a look at what Day 02 turned out looking like after adding a photo and words and a few other things:
Today's story is about taking Anna to pick out a toy for Toys For Tots. Her school was collecting toys and she was very emphatic that it was what we needed to do (Go Anna Go) so we did it.
The photo was taken using my iPhone and printed with my Epson PictureMate PM400 here at home.
I like real-life shots like this that show her size compared with a bunch of things in the store. I also added a cardstock sticker right to the center of the photo and added a hard-to-see transparent sticker that says "holly jolly" on the back of the sticker from Day 01.
The second page for today includes four pockets. Inside the top left pocket is a "be of good cheer" card from the Cheer Story Kit™ + a transparent "tis the season circle" that was included with a Studio Calico kit last month. The embossed #2 was part of my Foundation Pages (super fun to emboss on those large chipboard letters). The journaling (which is the place where I changed my mind - you can see it in the video below) card includes a gold-embossed stamped title "I love this because" from the Holiday Circles stamp set. In the fourth pocket I ended up cutting up the "stuff" card from the Main Kit, attaching it to a piece of gold star vellum, and then adding a perforated phrase strip from the Cheer Story Kit™ to finish it off.
Something else to note on the journaling here is that I framed it as a short letter/note to Anna.
Here's a look at it outside of the album:
