December Daily® 2022 | Story 17

Winter Break is underway over here and the house is full of kids lounging + finding cozy ways to hang out and I love it so much!

Today I'm sharing Story 17 in my 2022 December Daily® album and it's a story about cutting holly at a friends farm. 

Let's dive in to the process video: 

Here's a look via images: 

Today's story is built on the back of the tag from Story 16 and includes a full page photo + pattern paper cut down the middle to create an opening. 

Pattern paper is from the Main Kit. 

I used the holly die cut from the die cut bundle to create the "opener" and paired it with a canvas phrase + a glitter star from last year + a metal number brad from Tim Holtz.

Washi tape from the Main Kit is used along the left edge to create a hinge. The other half is added into the album using the rings and isn't attached to the tag. 

And of course I used a bit of embroidery floss to add a bit more red to the canvas phrase. 

On the inside is a fun photo of my friend and I collecting the holly from her amazing holly trees at her family farm. 

On the inside of the flaps I added more pattern paper. 

To tell the story I took a screenshot of our text conversation and sized it to fit. I love telling a story this way - it's a great way to bring in other voices and a bit of technology. 

Along the top I added a tab sticker and another gold star. 

On the other flap I added a circle punched photo of the bundles Kim made to give away to her neighbors. I added a gold star and I also used gold embossing powder on the back of the die cut holly to finish it off. 


Merry, merry my friends.

    Wow! I've never seen holly growing before! We don't have real stuff here in Australia (that I know of!)

    Today I'm sharing a very Aussie Christmas page - all about beaches
