Welcome to December Daily® 2016 | Day 09.
Today I'm documenting the story of our Christmas card ( printed from Minted) which is super fun and special as it's our first one all together. The sentiment for the title of the card couldn't be more perfect for our 2016.
We had so much fun taking the photos outside on our front porch using my tripod and camera remote (we are a silly bunch) and, as you'll see below, I included some of the out-takes when we took the photos.
We took these on a Sunday morning. I told everyone to grab a winter hat, and "no, you don't have to change out of your PJ's," and grab your favorite book right now, and let's take a Christmas card photo. It's was Aaron's idea (he's full of this kind of stuff) to have everyone holding a book. I'll take credit for the hats. We make a good team.
As a reminder, here's what Day 09 looked like as a foundation page:
Here's a look at what Day 09 turned out looking like (two pages):
On the back of the "8" card from Day 08 I added pattern paper from the Pam Garrison December Daily® Mini Kit and I embossed a Cascade chipboard alpha #9 using Ranger Red Tinsel Embossing Powder (which is awesome if you haven't tried it yet).
We did a short message on the back of the card ( only regret is not adding all the kids names + ages) about how we are all starting a new chapter and how we wish you many awesome stories in the year to come. And that the cats were not pictured.
I trimmed off the far right row of pockets from the 2x2 page protector set and then slipped all my 2x2 out-takes into those pockets (just because I like the different page widths within the album). If you're looking for a 2x2 layered template I did include one in my 6x8 December Stories Layered Template Set Vol. 3 and one in the 4x6 version as well.
Here's a look at the pieces of Day 09 outside of the album:
