December Daily® 2021 | Story 09

Welcome to Story #09 in my December Daily® album for 2021. 

As I'm looking back at this one I can see that I didn't include a number - I'm totally okay with that as it's fairly obvious in the flow of the album itself.

Let's dive into the video: 

And here's a look at the spread in and out of my album: 

Today's story is obviously happening on the back of the pattern vellum from yesterday. Because of that it was really easy to look for a story I could tell that would include more 2.5 inch circle punched images or papers or something along those lines. Each kid received a new ornament when we decorated the tree the other night so this became a fun way to highlight what they picked out/received. 

I created a new circle word art for my title ("new ornaments") and have it available for you to download here. 

To identify each of the ornaments I created a text circle in Illustrator (you can do this in Photoshop too) with their names and then cut them out and adhered them behind each photo so they look like tabs. I adhered them with scotch tape initially and then adhered the entire circle down with foam adhesives. 

On top of each photo I also added a glitter cardstock star with a silver mini brad through the center. 

I decided to add a second page of journaling and format it in a 1/2 circle shape (same as the shape in the Die Cut Paper Pack) that detailed a little more about the ornaments. Nothing fancy with the words. I also added two more silver cardstock stars with brads through the middle. 

Font is Avenir. 

I'm such a fan of these circle grids. I enjoyed doing another one today but I'm ready to move onto something different tomorrow.

    Hiding the pickle is a German Christmas game. We gave a pickle ornament that you hide deep in the branches of the tree and the children see who can spot the pickle first.

      I was just going to share this exact same thing! We have a pickle ornament too. First person to find it on Christmas morning gets a special treat, like getting to open the first present.

      My Mom gave one to the grandsons years ago and they love it. They were just at a friends' Christams party and it was the game of the night - So fun!
