December Daily® 2017 | Day 10

Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 10. 

For my story today I played with two enlarged photos and cut them into 2 inch x 2 inch squares to fit in the 12 pocket page protector. Sometimes with these small pockets I enjoy slipping in a bunch of embellishments or photos from around the house or pieces cut from things that have come into the house recently (packaging, etc) but this time I decided to go with full page photos chopped into a bunch of squares. 

Here's what Day 10 looked like when I did my  Foundation Pages

And here is what I ended up creating: 

First I decided to staple the tree transparency to the back of the Day 9 pocket page. This enabled me to feel totally fine about moving on to the next page protector vs. feeling like I needed to fill in the pockets behind Day 9. I moved the story tag (waiting for kids to come home to have them fill these out) between the tree transparency and the 2 inch x 2 inch pocket page. 

For Day 10 I decided to print two 6 inch x 8 inch pages and cut them up into 2 inch x 2 inch squares for both the front and the back of the page protector. You can see this process in my video overview below. 

I removed one square of the photos and added the cork "10." I also added word/phrase stickers that related to the activities we had going on yesterday. I trimmed these stickers to have less blank space around each word. 

On the back side I added my second photo (one of the cozy blankets on my unmade bed) and ended up typing up just a few words and printing them on vellum and slipping it inside the pocket on top of a part of the larger photo. 

Font is  Remington Noiseless. 

Here's a look at the front and back of Day 10 outside the album: 

Bring on the simple!

    Completely inspired and scraplifting this idea as well!!! Especially since I have a 2x2 page protector as my day 10 as well. I was actually planning to recycle my same idea I do every year and cut wrapping paper samples into 2x2 squares because I like to see the paper I used but this is such a fresh idea! Every year I lift 2 or 3 ideas from you and copy them and this is the first for the year. Ha!

    Hi Ali, these pages and stories are darling! I have a question, are the 6x8 photos enlarged from a landscape or portrait orientation? I took a horizontal (landscape orientation) of the outside of my home to make is 6x8 but I lose a lot of the content of photo? Then I took a photo again and oriented the camera to be portrait and I still lose a lot of content of photo unless I back up really far. How do you do it? Thank you

    I love the 'cozy' feel of the picture of your bed, especially since your theme is 'cozy' this year. I'm going to try this.
    Enjoy your day, Sharon

But I can’t get it to print 6x8. It’s really doing my head in because I JUST WANT TO START ALREADY. LOL.

    Love how you split your big photos into the little pockets. Where is your plaid wrapping paper from?
