I hope you had a lovely holiday! We had a simple family-centered time and I'm so thankful for a little break for all of us.
I'm back today with stories 21 and 22 in my 2022 December Daily® project.
I'm sharing these two together because they came together at the same time as I was planning out Story 21.

Let's dive in:
Here are some still images:
I took this photo earlier in the month and have been waiting to add it in to my project. While I love seeing trees lit up and twinkling I also really like seeing them in the daylight.
I decided to pair this full page photo with a 3x8 transparency + the tree die cut.
Along the outside edge I added some washi tape from my stash to cover up the fact that this photo was a bit smaller than the previous page.
I love having journaling that talks about basic details of the season like this - I will totally enjoy reading this back again to myself next year.
To go along with my full page photo I used one of the 3x8 transparencies as a home for story 21 and for story 22 on the back. I sized my text boxes to 2.25 inches x 6.5 inches tall which left some room to peek through the transparency to the next page.
At the top of my journaling I added a canvas strip with a red stitch on top.
I cut off the holes from the tree die cut and then ran it through my sewing machine to attach the tree to the transparency. Along the outside edge I added a tab sticker and then adhered the chipboard 21 using rolling adhesive.
Before stitching the tree to the transparency I added the photo to the back and trimmed it out to the same shape. The photo I printed was 3 inches wide x 8.25 inches tall.
Along with the journaling I added the "22" using numbers from the Main Kit and hole punched our Christmas card to add it to the album.
I also added another one of those plastic glitter stars from my stash.
