December Daily® 2017 | Day 02

Welcome to  December Daily® 2017 | Day 02. 

Today I decided to tell a short story about how December has started quietly around her (kids have been with their other parents for the last few days). I knew I probably wanted to build something on top of the large tag I used in Day 01 so I ended up creating a flip-open card that includes a photo of one of our cats and the "weekend stories" journal card from the Main Kit. More details below. 

Remember, this project doesn't have to take a ton of time and you don't have to try to include everything you did on any particular day. Pick one story - it might be long or it might be short - and tell it. 

Here's a look at my Day 02: 

I paired a chipboard circle from the December Daily® Chipboard Bundle with one of the cork numbers from the Main Kit on the outside of the card. 

As a reminder, here is what I had in my album for my Foundation Page:

I'm loving the option to work outside the page protectors and using what is "there" for that day. 

I used some of the printed masking tape to create the "flip-open" part of the card. I added strips of tape to both the outside and the inside (cutting down the star masking tape to just two strips of stars) of the cards to keep them together. 

Right behind the chipboard piece I added a "love" perforated phrase to the adhesive portion that was showing through to the other side. I added my story directly to the journaling card and called it good.

    Love the simplicity of this day’s insert. Really drives home the notion that December Daily doesn’t have to be so hard. After hearing you on the Scrap Gals podcast I decided that my December Daily this year would just be a handwritten journal of daily thoughts and small stories mixed with whatever ephemera and occasional small photo feels right. I really loved in the podcast how you were trying to refocus folks on the true meaning of December Daily and giving everyone permission to do what felt right to them. I’m also LOVING these videos that show your thought process and creation “live”. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    I have been wondering whether I should include our pets somehow and last night as I was putting some lights up on the tree and the cats thought they were a toy for them I decided I would. Then I saw this and my mind was definitely made up. Here is my day 2 http://www.petracorcoran.com/december-daily-2017-day-2/

    Hello Ali,
    my day 2 is also ready and on my blog: http://smartiswelten.blogspot.com/2017/12/december-daily-day-2-eng.html
    It's a bit longer than planned, but the day was too awesome to make it short.
