The card above is designed to hold some journaling about all of the fun things we do on my kids' December school holidays as a family. I knew I'd probably have a lot to say, so I thought I'd write my journaling on a note and tuck it into a vellum envelope (I removed the envelope's flap) instead of trying to cram it all onto one 6x4 inch journaling card. Again, I made it using a piece of chalkboard-look paper from the Simple Stories December Documented range as a base before layering some red striped cardstock (cut from a 6x8 inch page that came with my Sn@p album), a gold tag from a Studio Calico Project Life kit, and a gold glitter number 8. Later I noticed that this spread was in fact number 7 in my album, NOT number 8, so since taking my pics I have changed the number on the tag. Oh well, no harm done :)
The right hand page of this spread will document photos that again, will be predominantly blue/aqua-based water action shots, so I wanted to avoid using aqua on this side of the layout. I'm anticipating that these photos will also be quite busy, so I wanted to include some filler cards that didn't have too many embellishments on them. I used two cards from the new Simple Stories Snap 3x4 Christmas pack. An old piece of pink and red dotty ribbon, a couple of gold stars, a chalkboard-look border sticker (also by Simple Storeis) and some sequins did the trick. I love how adding those few extra little bits and pieces to the plain cards makes them look that little more Christmassy :)
If you are new to my blog and my December Daily album, I have posted some info in a previous blog post HERE regarding what album I am using and how I went about putting together my own kit for my album. You can also see my completed album foundation pages to date HERE, and find some ideas for what to document in your own December Daily album HERE.
Thanks for popping by today! I'll be back in the next couple of days to share my other completed foundation page in my December Daily album with you...provided this flu of mine gets better, not worse ;)
See you soon :) xx
