I had tons of fun creating December 11th in my December Daily album. I decided to add a tag and a large photo – two of my favourite things! I also mixed black, white and gold and it seriously makes me so happy the way it turned out.
The first thing I did was open up illustrator to size my photo correctly. I believe the photo is 5×8 while the tag is 5 1/8 by 10. This is a Tim Holtz Distress Mixed Media tag by the way – which I purchase over at Simon Says Stamp. I trimmed down the tag to make it so it was 8.5 inches long… it’s a bit taller than the page protectors, but I like how it pops up above them a little.
The first thing I did was trim down this acetate divider from Ali Edwards – it came in last year’s December Daily kit. I’ve really wanted to use it for awhile and I feel like I finally found the perfect excuse. I cut off about 1 inch on the right hand side so it would line up perfectly with the tag.
The next step in my process was to add my journaling. So I grabbed out some two labels, stapled them together and added my journaling. I don’t know what it is, but I love the look of two labels like that… it just looks so pretty to me. To finish off this page I grabbed some gold glitter stars from Freckled Fawn and a few enamel dots from my stash.
I love how bright, cheery and happy this page is! Not to mention the adorable chalkboard outside of my favourite bakery – “All you need is love and Christmas cookies”.
I do have a process video if you’d like to check that out. You can find it here
