Today's December Daily® story is about the mess.
You know the mess, right? It seems to be all over around here right now - a little bit of holiday and a whole lot of regular life in our family. It's what's real in this moment.
Let's dive in to today's video:
Here are images and additional details:
Today's story home is a foundation page I set up before December. I used two journal cards I created for our Prep Day this year (during one hour Laura Wonsik and I created ten journal cards each using stamps from this year's collection as the jumping off point).
One of these journal cards is a shaker pocket made out of a 3 inch x 4 inch page protector that holds three tags with twine and the other is a journal card with gold embossed/stamped numbers 1-7.
Something I love about this particular foundation page set up is that ANY story could be substituted here. The base is holiday and from there it's up to you to add a story.
On top of the shaker pocket (which also includes a couple embossed circle stamped sentiments + sequins from The Diary Of Belle Rose) I added the glitter cardstock word believe + a puffy Santa + a custom printed phrase "it's a big mess."
On top of two of the tags I added photos of a couple messes around here. These photos were cropped to 1.5 inch x 2.5 inches and adhered onto the stamped tags. On top of the photos I added phrase stickers and added a red embroidery stitch. That little bit of stitching is my favorite.
On the journal card I stamped "it's a mess" using our Redwoods ink + Typewriter Alpha before adding in my journaling. It's what's real around here right now! The little red label is from a Tim Holtz sticker set.
I loved using this piece of vellum as the foundation for these two squares. Along the bottom I added rub ons from Tim Holtz.
