December Daily Days 11-15


Annnnnd enter the days of concerts, elves, fudge making (totally on board with this bit) and a visit to the big man Santa. We're getting closer and closer to the big day and the kids excitement is starting to boil over, however bed time is easier as I may be using the excuse ' if you go to bed early that means Santa can come sooner'... this however has its limitations - tis not 15yr old proofed.



DAY 11- ELVES AND A DRUM CONCERT

Drum music, stars (just a few) and a flip out journal page on a 6x8 pocket page with 2 6x4 sections. Had to do a little cutting and fusing to make the flip out page work, and look, still not 100% sure it does actually work, but looks like it does in the photos so I'll take that :)

DAY -12 ITS ALL ABOUT THE FUDGE

Using a 6x8 photo cut to fit 3x4 pockets on one side, with journalling and finding a finger poker culprit on the back. I love these 6x8 grid ideas, however cutting the photos always makes me a tad jittery, which really wouldn't happen if I just took the time to measure properly and not guess...

DAY 13 - THE BIG MAN HIMSELF

Ok, so based on this photo, have realised I need to go back and add a date onto the red card tab - whoops, my bad - will most likely get round to this next year! On a plus, the kids met Santa and apart from the 15yr old all were super happy to do so... I felt the layout was lacking just a little something so I added a white dot transparency sheet over the top of the photo with the 13 on it, happier now!

DAY 14 - STARS & DONUTS

Worked with a gold and neutral color palette on a 6x8 grid sheet I cut in half. I'll be honest, I actually thought I forgot to take a photo today, so when I came across this little photo I was stoked and slightly hungry again...

DAY 15 - COKE & TAGS

Tags have been a bit of thing this year for me, mainly because it's been a great way to use up some scrap bits I had lying around and I also love them so its really a win win all round. Using a 6x8 backing for a pocket page, I stapled a cut 'merry' card for the tags to slip into. I think my fav part of this is the vellum stars I added to the 'Hodge' coke bottle - mind you finding a Coke bottle with 'Hodge' on it is just down right cool on its own.
