December Daily 2014 // Day 7-Day11

Hello friends! I have more from my December Daily 2014 album today. 🙂

On the back of Day 6 (transparency with photo in the middle) I put some white feathers tied with a silver ribbon. For Day 7 I have a pocket with a few translucent shapes, photo, number card, and my journaling.

For Day 8 you have the back side of the pocket with translucent shapes, a little photo with mini journaling, number card, and this beautiful gray polka dot tree. I also hole punched and added the pamphlet from the evening event we went to.

After flipping the pamphlet, I made a little photo collage from the same evening, brought together by a little gold glitter star sticker in the center.

For Day 9 I added a little glitter chevron pocket from a Studio Calico kit with my journaling inside. The opposite page has the photos from this day.

Day 10 was a special day for me. I remember writing these words on my notecard to save and document later on. It was such a special moment to me that I decided to use the actual card I wrote in that moment… I sliced it up so it would fit in the 4×3 pocket but those feelings come back every time I see and read this card. 🙂

For Day 11 I have (on the right side) 2 letters for each of my children’s names, journaling, and a number card. For the photos, I decided to make a little 1, 2, 3 picture “flip book” to show the progression of the photos. They were just so cute!! I adhered it on the outside of the pocket for easy flipping.

Christmas Already!

Hello! Well Halloween has been over for a few days now and I am already in the Christmas spirit! Yes, I am one of those annoying Christmas people who LOVES cheesy holiday movies, puts my decorations up early, and listens to Christmas music until January is over. So naturally, I have a couple of holiday themed cards to show you today!! I will be breaking down the card I posted yesterday as well as one more card I made with the same theme. Now I am typically a mass photo card person around this time of year so any Christmas cards I make, I will be using alongside of hostess gifts, etc. Let’s dive in! Here’s numero uno: >>

To make this card, I first embossed a tag from a past Studio Calico card kit with brown powder and a Hero Arts woodgrain stamp. I attached a paper pieced holly leaf to it with a bit of twine and set them aside. I used dimensional adhesive to attach a trimmed slice of green textured cardstock to the kraft card base (from Papertrey Ink) and adhered the tag and holly on top of it. I finished it off with a red die cut ornament on the left side and I was finished! I love how this card turned out, I think it is so fun! Onto numero dos! >>

This is a SUPER simple card! To make it I embossed gold woodgrain on the entire PTI kraft card base first. I cut and adhered pieces of solar white cardstock (also from Papertrey Ink) and green textured cardstock together and then onto the card base. And finally, I attached the die cut “JOY” on top with dimensional adhesive. Anddddd… done! SO simple, right?

Well, that’s all I have for you today! Have a wonderful week and I will see you next Tuesday! Happy creating!
