December Daily® 2018 | Day One

Welcome to December Daily® 2018 Day 01. 

This year I did something I have never done before: I ordered, received, addressed, and mailed the vast majority of my holiday cards before December began. 

It's actually what I asked for for my birthday this year in early November. I got the whole crew outside on a day everyone happened to be here, set up my timer on my camera, and took a couple photos of us. From there I brought my camera inside, uploaded the images, picked one, and then ordered my cards. 

And it made me so darn happy. 

Here's how I told the story in my album: 

Some stories call for more than one page and others can be told using one pocket. Today is one of those more-than-one-page days for me - this story ended up including a transparent page, our Christmas card, and an enlarged photo page that holds the story. 

The transparent page with the cork stars was completed in advance of December as part of my Foundation Pages

I use a 6 hole punch to easily punch things to add to my album. 

Minted is who I use for our holiday cards. They have long been a favorite of mine and they run specials from time to time so watch out for those if you haven't ordered cards yet.  

On the edge of our card I added an Avery Index Tab and stamped a couple sentiments from the Let Your Heart Be Light stamp set

To tell the story of our cards this year I took a photo of the cards on my kitchen counter. I left space in my photo above the cards as well as leaving one of the envelopes blank that I could use to hold my story, embellishments, etc. I added my journaling to my photo in Photoshop before printing - for this day I used my Canon MG7720 printer

After printing I used my Mixed Alpha set to stamp "ah yeah" directly onto the photo and then added some wood stars that were an Add On for Stories By The Month™. I also used a  rolling date stamp to add the date at the bottom of the photo. 

IDEA TO TRY 

Take photos with journaling/story in mind. Look for space which can become a home for your words. This can work in so many memory keeping projects and is one of my favorite ways to approach photo taking.

    Oh my gosh on the holiday cards! Go you! I am really pretty clueless with what I want to do this year. I may try to get a pic of my boys. Maybe attempt to see if my puppy will sit still. Who knows?

    This year I am changing it up with our card and sending out New Year's cards. Hoping to have the opportunity to take photos this week to make my final selection and write the sentiment to include.
    Thanks Ali for this cool idea!
