December Daily - Part 2...4:39 PM
I am back to share days 2 and 3 of my December Daily album...
Day 2 went over a few pages because it was all about the decorating and I took quite a few photos I wanted to include.
I began the Day 2 documentation with a large photo of our little Sparkle decorating the tree. This is special because this year is her first time decorating the tree - she was too young and destructive the other years! I'm sure you know what I mean ;-) The number '2' is from the gold Thickers in the Polka Dot Creative kit and I've just attached it to a punched out circle from a red paint sample swatch - yep again! I love those paint swatches - you'll be seeing them alot. After-all, they are FREE from Bunnings so it's a very cheap embellishment ;-) I've attached the circle to the page by a washi tape adorned paperclip!
It was the girls and I who decorated the tree through the day while Daddy was at work. The next double page focuses on the decorations and the fun we had with it all.
I really enjoy the look of the page with the photo circles showing some of our fave decorations. I clipped a printed hashtag word that I did myself into the paper clip at the top. I also used the Christmas title box from the stamp set by Kellie Stamps from the kit and also one of the APOCD cherry flair.
I didn't use any embellishments on the other page - just added a border with a black AC precision pen around the edge of the photos incorporating some words in the border as well. I LOVE this look and use it A LOT!!!
The last part of the story for day 2 was putting the bright shining star on top of the tree. Little Sparkle got to do the honours this year, assisted by Daddy of course ;-)
I hand wrote 'And on TOP of the TREE...' onto vellum and attached that next to the photo of our little one and Daddy admiring the handiwork - so cute - and attached it with washi tape to the journal card. A couple of wood veneer stars added some more decoration.
I decided to make a star shaped insert from Christmas patterned paper. I used some Heidi Swapp 'Believe' patterned paper and another piece of paper I had in my stash. To cut out the star I used my star shape cutter from Creative Memories.
I used the Rhonna Designs app on my phone to create the word 'bright' for the title and printed it off, used my circle cutter and attached to the star card. The letters are black glitter Thickers and white chipboard letters.
And that is Day 2.
Day 3 was ALL ABOUT THE LIGHTS.
Daddy got home from work and untangled the lights on the floor before twirling them around the tree and swooped up along the top of the curtain rail. There were many 'oohs' and 'aahs' and 'wows' - and not just from the kids ;-)
I love lights!
Again, I created the text 'Bring on the Lights' using the Rhonna Designs app, printed it off, cut around it with my circle cutter and attached it to a small paper doily and then onto the star. Some clear sequins finish off the sparkle.
Hope you have enjoyed the tour of Day 2 and 3 in my December Daily album :-)
