Welcome to December Daily® 2016 | Day 15.
A big freezing rain/ice storm caused all kinds of havoc around here yesterday and today. Katie's power was out for over 24 hours - luckily at this point we still have it here. Schools are closed so the kids were loving it. I was going to do a story about gratitude today but I think I'll leave that for another day so I can include this photo of some of our trees encased in ice. Beautiful, but man it can really cause damage.
Here are a few shots around my house/yard:
As a reminder, here's what Day 15 looked like as a foundation page:
Obviously I'm still moving things around - totally okay with that on my end.
Here's a look at what Day 15 turned out looking like:
I decided to go with a black and white photo of the trees along a portion of our back fence (photo sized to the full size of the page protectors + printed on my Canon Pixma MG7720). I took a photo with a lot of sky knowing I could create a home for my journaling in that space. I also measured the size of that transparent label from the Paislee Press December Daily® Mini Kit and drew a box in Photoshop that was the same size and then aligned my journaling box next to it. The font I'm using for journaling today is Sentinel.
On top of the transparent label I used the white letter stickers from the Main Kit and ended up with a mix of upper and lower case. A Tiny Attacher was used to staple it in place.
I used the "15" chipboard from the Main Kit and added some Ranger Snowflake Tinsel Embossing Powder on top. Additional accents include a phrase sticker from Tim Holtz and a small silver star from a past Story Kit™.
Here's a look at it outside of the album:
In the video you'll see that I also ordered and tested out a different hole punch (Power Punch) vs. the Crop A Dile. Mine ended up having some kind of yellow rusty liquid come off of it while I was punching the hole - not what I wanted to have happen. I also found it hard to see where the hole was going to be punched (even though I hold my Crop A Dile in a way that makes it harder to see too). I'm not sure about that tool yet - I tried to wipe off the yellow rusty part with a cloth but it still ended up coming out again on the next hole I punched. I'll likely test it out a few more times. You can see the size difference of the holes on my page above - the bottom hole is the new tool vs. the Crop A Dile that I've been using.
