December Daily® 2023 | Story 03

Welcome to December Daily® 2023 Story 03. 

Simon stopped by yesterday for some assistance with a film project he's working on so I took it as an opportunity to take a photo and tell a little story about him right now. 

STORY IDEA: Combine a present + past December photo to illustrate the passage of time.

Here's how this page come together: 

Table of contents for Story 03: 

Today I used a Micron Pen for my Table Of Contents entry. 

And let's take a look at how this story was documented: 

Full page photo foundations continue to be one of my favorite ways to document my stories. This photo was sized 11 inches wide x 8.25 inches tall.

On top of the photo I added one of the window cards to hold my words and a second photo of Simon back in 2007. On the outside of the window card I added a chipboard star and gold puffy numbers. 

Both the journaling block and the secondary photo are 3 inches x 3 inches. It was so fun to look back at my first December Daily® and find this photo of Simon + Santa to pair with the grown-up photo of him now. 

I also added a couple more puffy numbers on top of the 2007 photo to designate the date. 

These window cards are such a great way to create a little home for photos and words. Last one I used one on top of a pattern paper and I love the simplicity of that one too. 

As I'm looking at that now I love how I added the tab sticker along the top. I might add something similar to today's story too.

    I love this story of Simon and happy to see him and that he’s doing so well!! I remember that older photo of him too. Such a neat idea to add a past photo to present one.

    I have looked for the tutorial about building the window cars using the digitals from Kelly that you
    Mentioned in your video but I can’t find it anywhere. I know I have seen it.

      They are included in the digital download (within the folder with the templates). It's not a video tutorial.

    Also I ordered these star Brad’s on Amazon a few years ago in case you’re still looking for them. (Not an affiliate link, just FYI 😃)

    I love this video. I'm just hanging out working on my album while you craft and talk too. This page of Simon came out great! I still have younger ones at home, so I can't even imagine what it's like having an older child out of the house. So nice that he just pops on by!
