December Daily® 2018 | Day Four

Welcome to December Daily® 2018 Day 4. 

Today my story is about getting ready to head out on our trip to New York City. It includes a photo of me working, a card from the Main Kit, journaling and another flip up - this time using vellum (I got inspired by seeing a stamped vellum page from Virginie - a member of the December Daily® Facebook Group). 

My process video today is a great example of ways you can make this project super simple and ways that you can build on that simplicity to play more when you have time. 

Just a heads up that I will be traveling through December 9th and will begin posting again here to my blog when I return. I'll be documenting my trip with the traveler's notebook I set up - you can see that in my Foundation Pages - and will share that and get back to regular posting for this project when I return home. You can follow along with how I document during my trip via the @decemberdaily Instagram account

Here's a look at how I tackled Day Four: 

I started out with a super simple idea to simply tell the story of getting ready to head out on our trip. For me that means getting all my work squared away and helping the boys get packed. 

As I was working on my page I decided to add another flip up using vellumjumbo alpha stamps

As you'll see in the video below, I created this flip up and wasn't thinking about the fact that this side of the page protector isn't open. To fix that issue I used a craft knife and cut a slit in the page protector (making sure to keep the side seams in place) to be able to use a flip through on this side. 

On top of the vellum I also added some of the small gold stars from the Glitter Star Sequin Bundle using a glue pen

PS // Sorry for the lighting in the video today. I had a small window to get it done and the morning light was not ideal.

    Great page! Instead of cutting the page protector, I think I would just glue the journaling card to the outside of the page protector and the vellum page could easily flip. 😀

      Yes! I do this all the time with Red-Line tape! They are still "holding strong" after a few years.

      That is a brilliant idea. I've had the same dilemma of the opening being on the "wrong" side, and never thought to just glue the card on top. Thank you!

    My favorite thing about your page today Ali, is how lovely it was to follow your journey to find a finished vellum-stamped flip solution. Thank you for sharing! Also, have a fabulous adventure in NYC! I’ve yet to visit there myself, and I would imagine December will be simply magical there.
