Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 04.
Today I'm telling the story of Simon coming back home and being super excited to catch up on his Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar. His enthusiasm is always contagious.
To create a home for my story today I used on the layered templates included with the December Daily® 6x8 Layered Template Set Vol 4. Want to learn more about using digital products in paper projects? Check out my Hybrid Workshop for an awesome introduction to working with my digital projects to create layouts and projects that combine both physical and digital products.
I love the some days can be super "crafty" and others can simply focus on the words and photos. Do what works best for you and the season you are living in right now.
As a reminder, here is what I had in my album for Day 04:
And here's a look at what I ended up with for Day 04:
I used one of the layered templates included in the December Daily® 6x8 Layered Template Set Vol. 4 to create the base of my layout. I first cropped my photo to the size of the page protectors (the outside dimensions = 6.75 x 8.25) and then adjusted the layered template in Photoshop by making the white box a bit larger and making the line a little longer to accommodate the additional width (originally the templates are sized to 6x8). I considered using the word art that was originally included with this layered template but decided to keep the focus more on the photo.
Font used for journaling is Sentinel.
On top of the photo I added three things: (1) a large white number 4 from this sticker sheet + a gold foil circle ("this moment") from the Main Kit + a very small red felt heart from the Main Kit.
Font size here is 9pt.
