December Daily® 2018 | Day Fourteen

Happy December Daily® Day 14!

Today I gave myself permission to play with something I've never used before - a Minc foiling machine. I used it to get white foil on a laser transparency using some word art you can download below. 

It's one of the things that I always love about this project: the opportunity to play on the days when I have a little more time. 

Here's a look at how it all ended up (lots of trial and error can be seen in my video overview below): 

Today's story includes a 6x8 photo, a laser transparency ran through my Minc machine, journaling cut out on top and a few gold star brads keeping it all together with the page protector. 

I created my journaling in Photoshop and printed it out on photo paper before cutting out each individual section and adhering it on top of the transparency. 

Here's the word art download for you:

I ended up attaching the transparency to the outside of the page protector using gold star brads

I love how this one turned out and I love the process of how it all evolved from what I thought I would do in the beginning and how it all came together in the end. 

On the bottom (on top of the page protector) I added some of the gold numbers from the Main Kit

    Love this page and sentiment!! My house is a total mess. I am sort of forcing myself not to worry about it too much for my own mental health.

    Here is my current DD page, just a normal day at the library.

    Love this idea, Ali. Thanks for the word art.
    How heavy are these transparencies? It's one of my favorite things to use, but most I see are thin. I like them with a bit of weight. Can you use them with your Canon printer? I have the same one..
    Thanks!

      Ink jet transparencies are different than laser printer transparencies. The one I used here is just for laser printers (this is what makes it work with the Minc machine). I have an ink jet transparency that I use for the Canon (just search amazon for either ink jet or laser printer transparencies). Neither are as thick as the transparencies we manufacture and sell here.

    Love watching you play and figure things out. Those star brads were an awesome idea. Gotta try that!

    I love this one! It came out so good. I’m going to create the same look with sticker vinyl. 🤗

    hi, Ali, I watched this before Christmas, and just came back to it looking for the font name for the journaling. I thought you named it, or even linked it, but I cannot find it. Did I miss it? Thank you for the great pages and the wonderful kits!
