Welcome to Story #25 in my December Daily® album for 2021.
I'm super excited to be wrapping up my album with today's look at the last few stories in my album this year. I'm working on a full walk-though of all the pages in my album to share soon.
I also really loved giving myself a bit of extra time to finish this up. Sometimes I find myself rushing through these last few stories and this year I felt like I gave myself more space + time to not be in a hurry and I love my result.
Thank you so much for being a part of this project in 2021!
Let's dive into the video:
And here's a look at how it all turned out:
One of the notes I wrote to myself when I was working on my foundation pages a few months ago was to use this grid pattern paper to hold photos/words/embellishments from either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. I'm so glad I jotted that down on a sticky note to remind myself!
I gathered up a collection of photos from Christmas Day and cropped them to 2 inches wide x 1.75 inches tall.
On top of the photos I added a plastic piece cut to the same size as the photo. Using washi tape I created a flip up and cut the label circle stickers in half and added them on top. On top of the 1/2 circles I used a Slick Writer to add a little detail.
I also created little journal boxes in photoshop with a red border and added those in between/around my photos + their flip ups. Under the 1/2 circle stickers I added a puffy heart from a past sticker sheet (Evening Story Kit I think).
The next page is a piece of Grafix Plastic with the felt 2 + 5 on top. I stitched those two together when I was playing with my foundation pages and then stitched them (in the same spot) onto the Grafix Sheet. On to of the 25 I added another one of the banners from one of the sheets of pattern paper.
On the back of the felt 25 I added a Tim Holtz Rub On and one of the sliver glitter stars.
The next page features a full page photo that Aaron took of all of us on Christmas morning. I printed that one 11 inches wide x 7 inches tall and then cut a strip of the Merry Christmas pattern paper to add along the bottom. I ran that through my sewing machine to add the zig zag red stitching before adding on the Christmas puffy sticker from the Main Kit.
I got the snow I was wishing for during the night on Christmas and I was so filled with joy! After our Christmas Day photo I adhered the red pattern paper to the back of the photo and added a 3.5 inch circle photo of me celebrating the snow.
On top of the photo I added another of the banners from one of the pattern papers using foam adhesive squares. I love this page.
This year I decided to end my album with one of my favorite pattern papers + a little message: Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. So thankful for our family and for this past holiday season and for all of you who shared your stories this year. Thank you for being a part of this community!
