December Daily® 2019 | Story Six

Welcome to Story #6 for  December Daily® 2019. 

One of the things on my list of stuff I wanted to do in my album this year was to incorporate a photo that spread across both pages. Obviously in a 4x6 album that's going to be a very horizontal image so I had started thinking about what kinds of images I might want to use. When I was out on my walk this morning I took a photo of the grey fog happening down my street. It fit my mood and I decided to see if I could make it work for my story today. 

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: 

I cropped my photo to 14 inches wide x 4.25 inches tall and printed it using my Epson XP15000 on 13x19 photo paper. I cut it in half, punched holes, and then rounded the outside edges using the half-circle page as a template. 

I added "cozy & quiet" using the gold alphabet in the Main Kit

I cut down the 2x2 pocket page protector so it just included two pockets - the top already included the gold alpha spelling out "six" from my foundation pages. To fill the second pocket I copied and pasted my journaling from my Instagram post and then printed it out (I used Photoshop to create the black background and white text). I added an Avery Index Tab and filled the inside with a strip of star transparency

For the space behind the tiny story for today I found a quote about simplicity and printed/cropped it to fit. 

Because I essentially added a new page into the album I also need to do something on the other side of the first half of the photo. 

I went with pattern paper from the Paislee Press Mini Kit paired with a chipboard circle from the Advent calendar and a metal circle "story of this day" that was a recent add on offered to kit subscribers (still available if you are a kit subscriber).

    Oh Ali. I love the simplicity of the album so far this year. Just gorgeous. And again a reminder to tell the stories, big and small, and ENJOY the process. Thanks again for what you do.

      You might be able to use some of it - or fix the parts where the pocket has been left un-useable (like using a fuse tool or stitching).

    LOVE the transparency in the Avery Index Tab. Fabulous idea. I will have to steal that!

    Hello Ali, I was wondering the same thing as vriggs, what typewriter font are you using for your journaling? I am finally doing DD this year. I have followed your blog, bought product and stamps for years but actually took your advise to heart this year. one story per day so I won't feel overwhelmed. I'll actually have perhaps two stories some days but I feel the most relaxed in years and hope to actually finish an album this year. Thanks for the inspiration.
