Hello and welcome to December 10 in my 2016 December Daily album! Today I am sharing the story + photos of going to get our Christmas tree, which always is the official start of the season for me. Have a look at my process!
This is how the layout looked when I completed my foundation pages. The products I am using are courtesy of Tori Bissell and can be downloaded (for free!!!) here: Tori Bissell printables.
This is the layout for the 10th completed!
I began with this enlarged photo which ended up measuring 9x4.5". I used the white space for my journaling, added the rubber embellishment from the Paislee Press mini kit, and added a ribbon tab which was from Target last year.
For the filler card I had created this card using one of the pattern papers included in Tori's collection, and then layered a transparency over top that came from Pinkfresh Studio Oh Joy. The only thing I did to it here was add a tiny washi strip from Amy Tangerine.
My second photo is of our kids while we were making our selection. This photo is one of my traditions - I make a point every year to snap a photo like this so we can compare from year to year. Love this so much!
The middle pocket was created during my foundation stage and features a cut up transparency from Ali Edwards. This transparency was a purchase promotion available to the first people who pre-ordered the main kit way back in September. I know some people have been looking for it, and so that is the story behind. After I cut up the transparency, I layered my embellishments on top of the pocket.
See you back here tomorrow!
