Story 16 in my 2022 December Daily® album is about celebrating Elliott's + Audrey's December birthdays.
Let's dive in to the process video:
Here's a look at my story via images:
In the video for this story I mention how much I love full page photos and how once I start bringing them in it's almost hard to stop. I love them so much.
For today's story I selected a photo I took after our birthday dinner celebration as we were all saying goodbye before going our separate ways. I had turned around and saw everyone interacting with one another and I snapped one photo - this was what I got. This is so us and I love capturing the interactions and am 100% here for imperfect photos.
I paired the full page photo with a fun, festive tag page.
On top of my full page photo I added one of the felt circle pockets. On top of the journaling circle I stapled a 1 and 6 from the Numbers Scrapbook Kit. I also added another sticker tab along the outside edge to encourage the reader to pull out the circle.
I added a vellum quote strip to the top of the vellum pocket in the same way I did on my Reason Why page.
On the back of the circle I added our selfie shot. That circle is 3 inches wide. Based on the way we were situated on the photo I added a bit of text on black along the edge.
On the second page - one of the die cut papers - I had added the rubber tags and a puffy Santa when I was creating my foundation pages. To that initial design I cut out the wreath circles from one of the 6x8 transparent pages and added journaling circles on top that are 1.5 inches.
I love the look of pairing those tag shapes with the wreath circles.
I added a red/white ribbon to the tag page (the ribbon was on a gift from a friend so I don't have a source for it).
