December Daily® 2023 | Story 23

Welcome to Story 23 in my 2023 December Daily® album. 

When I looked back through my photos to identify a story from the 23rd the one main photo I took that day was of Anna + friends hanging around the table. I love that the photo is very representative of the season of life we are in right now. Your current season might be full of little kids and toys or the expectation of kids or the missing of kids or not have anything to do with kids at all. 

Let's dive in: 

Here's the Table Of Contents: 

For today's story I'm continuing to echo some of the design elements I've used earlier in this album: wreaths + circle photos + circle text + velvet ribbon. 

I started with a base of the fun x + o pattern paper and initially planned to simply have the wreath/vellum/tree be an interactive element to reveal my journaling and photo. As I was constructing the page I ended up deciding to add another wreath cut in half and bring in the red velvet ribbon for that awesome pop of red. 

Inside the wreaths that are framing the center wreath I added some pattern vellum + story numbers + a gold chipboard star. 

The wreath with the "so much joy" vellum is stitched to the piece of velvet and attached under the washi tape from my stash. It lifts up to reveal journaling printed on vellum that is attached to a circle photo. 

My photo and journaling circle were punched using a 3.5 Inch punch. I also used a 4 inch circle punch to create the white border around the photo/journaling. 

Around the outside of the page I created a border using old washi tape from my stash. 

I'm also adding in our Christmas card and the "I see you" journaling project I put together for Prep Day this year using the Starbucks bag + pattern vellum on the back.

    Ali I use these thin mini circle Velcro fasteners and they work extremely well. I used them this year as a closure for the cash holders I made and use them frequently in my album pages when I need something to hold my flip ups. Hope this helps.

      was about to suggest velcro since the page is finished and a magnet would be difficult to hide now.
