December Daily® 2018 | Day Eleven

Welcome to December Daily® Day 11! 

Today I'm telling the story of my book club get together last night - it was so fun to get together with everyone in our Christmas PJ's and chat and hang out and talk about reading  The Alice Network

One of the things on my list to do in my album this year was print a photo on  vellum. You'll read more about that below and can see more in the video overview

Also, I've added a digital download for you today that includes the " Book Club Love"  heart you see in my spread today and the reverse heart image. 

Download this file here.

Here's a look at how I added this story to my album: 

This spread includes the back of a 3-pocket page protector and a sheet of printed vellum with a Silhouette cut heart on top. 

I used gold star brads on top of the "so great" card and added a chipboard heart on top of my photo. 

I ended up using the digital version of the Main Kit to print out my journal card. 

Printing photos on vellum is easy and fun. I edited my photo in Photoshop (changing it to black and white and then using the clone tool to extend the length of the floor in front of us - the image size is the same as the page protectors) and printed it on Strathmore Ink Jet Translucent Vellum using my Canon Pixma MG7720.

On top of the vellum photo I used my Silhouette to cut out the "book club love" heart (available via the download above) and added a star brad and the number 11 (gold numbers from the Main Kit).

    Love this! I was just directed to your day 11 to look at the thicker vellum you used since my was curling. Thanks! I will need to get some of this for my stash. Believe it or not I am still using vellum I bought a decade ago :0
