December Daily® 2019 | Stories Seven + Eight

Welcome to Story #7 and #8 for  December Daily® 2019. 

I decided to combine days seven + eight into one post as I worked on them at the same time today. The video below includes details on both pages/stories. 

The page I had originally established for story #7 is getting moved to a different day (need all the kids to be here to take their photos for that story). 

A quick reminder that you can check out my Foundation Pages post to see my starting place for my project his year. 

Here's a look at how this story came together: 

Yesterday was Simon's Eagle Scout Project Day. It was awesome. 

For the story I decided to do a full page photo (on the back of story #6) that shows Simon leading members of his troop. 

On top of the image I added a chipboard star and two Christmas Tokens from Tim Holtz

For my journaling I created a 4.25 x 3 inch journal card and added the plastic "making magic" sentiment on top. I used a puffy gold star along the edge (and repeated that shape on the other side). 

On the back of the journaling card I adhered a photo of Aaron putting up our Christmas lights for story #8. When I put my foundation pages together I embossed all the gold stars on top of the wood #8 using a small star stamp. 

For my journaling I used Illustrator to type inside a circle and adhered it to the back of the 8 (it gets covered up by an image on the back as you'll see below). 

The pleather circle was added when I did my foundation pages originally. 

On the back of the wood #8 I added a photo of one of our cats (George) checking out the new Christmas lights). On top of that photo I added some word phrase stickers/ chipboard pieces

      They were part of the DD collection - sold out quickly.

    I saw where some other commenters were happy to see George. That was my first thought as well! We don't see as much of him as we do Ernie and Sam, so seeing him today was a treat. Such a regal and handsome guy.

    Here is my weekend post for the 6th-8th:

      He's very independent and spends more time away from home ;).
