December Daily® 2016 | Day 04

Welcome to  December Daily® 2016 | Day 04. 

Keeping it simple today with a story about one of my favorite holiday collections that I brought out for the kids (and for me). For a number of years I've been collecting different Christmas/Holiday themed Playmobil sets. My favorites are the  Playmobil Nativity along with other Advent calendars from past years that we've had that include woodland animals and Santas (Christmas On The FarmSanta's WorkshopChristmas Post Office). I love most that these toys get played with in December and then put away to come out again next year. 

Check out the video below for the step-by-step processes for today's story. 

As a reminder, here's what Day 04 looked like as a foundation page: 

And here's a look at what Day 04 turned out looking like:

Here's a rundown of what today includes: 

  • On the back of the messy circle from Day 03 I used the December Daily® 4x6 Silkscreen (cut out the "wonderful magical December moments" from the full 4x6) with my Pendleton (red) paint. Check out the video below for the full process or check out my Simple Guide To Silkscreens.  
  • To decorate the number 4 I used my Cascade Chipboard Alpha + the Christmas Star Stamp Set + my Pendleton Craft Ink (currently sold out individually but still available in the full set). That was then adhered onto a black 3x4 white piece of cardstock. I trimmed off the edge of the "4" chipboard along the right edge. At the top I used a rolling date stamp and then journaled my story using a Precision Pen (writing first and underlining second). 
  • I printed out my 4x6 photo using my Epson PictureMate PM400 (the white border is an option when printing). On top I adhered the rubber "holiday cheer" sentiment (from the Paislee Press December Daily® Mini Kit) using red line tape. One of the things we've learned over the last year is to NOT use glue dots with rubber embellishments - people have found that there is some kind of reaction between the glue dots and the rubber. Red line tape has seemed to work fine of my past projects using rubber embellishments. 

Here's a look at it outside of the album: 

I love the pops of red on the three main pieces of my story.

    Got the same holiday collections and love them as well. Need to get them downstairs, near the fireplace. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great day.

    Our Playmobil Santa is NEVER wearing his hat either! It cracks me up!

    Love this! One question, about this one, and past 2 days: how do you get the circles (and other embellishments) to stay in the pockets? Thanks!

      Morning! Those large messy circles really aren't moving around at all - the page protectors seem to be holding them in place.

    I love to not only watch how you pull the products together but also your thought process on developing the story and combining it with the products. That helps out a lot - at least for me. Thanks Ali.

    Hi Ali. I'm curious why you use don't use the same printer for your 4x6 prints -- the Canon for larger (but could do 4x6) and the Epson for 4x6 (I know the largest is 5x7). I am looking to buy a new photo printer, and I am curious. thanks.

      Mainly because it's been my go-to for a few years now. I purchased the Canon as a more reasonably priced printer to be able to recommend to people participating in these kinds of projects/hybrid scrapbooking (my other printer is a $500 Epson SureColor P400 that prints up to 13x19). If you are only going to get one printer and you want to be able to print 5x7 then I would get the Canon. If you only care about printing 5x7 and smaller then I would go with the PictureMate.
