Welcome to December Daily® 2016 | Day 11.
Each year when I do this album I always have a goal to make sure that I get myself in the album too. Obviously, there's a whole lot of me in here - thoughts, words/stories, handwriting, product choices, etc. What I'm talking about is literally seeing myself in the album via photos. I am part of the story too. For this shot I just set my camera on a counter in my kitchen and used the self-timer to capture me at the table doing some wrapping. The journaling card to the left tells the full story of the day.
As a reminder, here's what Day 11 looked like as a foundation page:
Obviously not telling a Christmas tree story today but I probably will tomorrow.
Here's a look at what Day 11 turned out looking like:
Today I told the story of a quiet December Saturday of work and wrapping and a bit of shopping and dinner out with Aaron.
I typed up my journaling and printed it onto a digital journal card and paired that with the photo I took of myself (printed with a white border and cut in half to fit the two 3x4 pockets), a fun and colorful pattern card from the Pam Garrison December Daily® Mini Kit (that linked the green on the journal card + the red of the wrapping paper), and an easy check-box journal card from the Jasmine Jones December Daily® kit.
I also used a new ink color (Willamette - one of my new Crafter's Ink colors) that should be available soon.
I used white glitter chipboard stars from the Surprise Story Kit™ to link the two pages together.
The journaling font today is Secret Service Typewriter. I typed up my story in Photoshop using one of the December Daily® Overlays Vol. 3 4x6. I adjusted it just a bit in Photoshop to be able to not punch the holes through the #11 (essentially I moved that layer over just a bit and drew new box to elongate the green box).
Here's a look at it outside of the album:
