December Daily® 2018 | Day Twelve

Welcome to  December Daily® 2018 Day 12. 

On the 12th day of the 12th month Elliott turned 12. A "golden birthday" for a kid who is truly a kind, fun, special kid - I am so thankful I get to be a part of his life and it was so great to get to take him to New York earlier this month (more on that adventure soon). For my story today I wrote a little note to him in the reverse shape of the heart I used yesterday (I printed that note twice and added it to the bulletin board in his bedroom). 

Here's a look at how I celebrated him in my album: 

I used my  Epson PictureMate PM400 to print the 5x7 photo - you'll hear me say in the video that the reason I chose that size is because I'm out of my other sizes of photo paper. Ha. Make do with what you have is how I'm working today. 

I moved my original 12 chipboard from the embellishment tree I created in  December Daily® Product Play 2 to this day and will use that tree for my story tomorrow. 

My journaling is a little note to Elliott that was added to the back of yesterday's  vellum printed photo. In yesterday's post I included a digital package with the book club heart and the reverse of the heart to be able to adhere the same shape on the back of the vellum. 

To create this I hand-wrote the message, scanned it in using Illustrator, traced the design and then reversed the colors to get the white type on the black heart. I did something similar in my album last year here.

Along the outside edge of the photo I added an Avery Index Tab and used a stamp from my Brave Stamp Set (available in my shop).

    I love that you *had* to print a 5x7 photo - the tree for day 13 peeks through on the right, and varying the sizes of the pages makes the album more interesting! Happy Birthday Elliot!

    Happy Birthday Elliot!
    I love that you printed it 5x7. I think having the different sizing makes it more interesting. It is like you often say ... sometimes constraints help us to be more creative.
