December Daily® 2023 | Story 06

Welcome to Story 06 in my December Daily® 2023 album. 

In Story 05 I documented what the kids are loving so today I decided to document three things from me, Aaron, and our dog Betty using the ornament pattern paper and some of the ornament pockets from the Main Kit. 

Let's dive in to the process video: 

For today's Table Of Contents entry I used a Brush Pen:

And here's how this page looks via images: 

The foundation for this story is the ornament pattern paper and three of the ornament pockets from the Main Kit. Inside each of the pockets I added one of the plastic tags and a printed tag with what I'm loving, what Aaron is loving, and what Betty is loving. 

I used ribbon from this year's Trim Pack to hold the plastic tag and my printed journaling together. I use a small glue dot to hold both sides of the ribbon together. 

On top of the ornaments around the outside edges I used POSCA Paint Pens to add the dots. I did individual colors and spread them around the page but you could also do multi-color dots which would have been really fun! 

The little tag sets fit right into the pockets and I added puffy alphas on the top of the pockets for our initials. 

I ran these through the Minc Machine to add the gold foil on top of the text. 

It was fun to think of what Betty might be loving right now. Ha. 

After considering a few different ideas for the other two large ornaments I decided to create a custom title that says "currently loving." I printed that on transparency with a laser printer and then ran it through the Minc Machine to add the gold foil. I used one of the other pocket ornaments as a guide to cut out the ornament shape. 

Download the Currently Loving word art here.

I ended up running that section through the sewing machine but the gold brad works just fine. 

For the story number I cut out one of the white ornaments from the 10x8 transparency paper and stitched it along the top. I also added brads to the top of any ornament visible on the page. On top of the transparency I added gold puffy numbers from the Main Kit.

    Totally guilty of talking to the video while watching. When you were searching for a word, I was literally saying out loud “outcome”! I am super appreciative that you have been experimenting with tools like the fuse tool and the foil on your cutting machine. Now I have some idea what to expect when I try mine out..

    Yay! This is so great! Love the gold foil title, and dots and ornaments. So fun! Loved watching it and laughed at when you said going too far. I do that and then it’s like, how do I fix it?! Thanks for sharing and your joy for the project!

    I’m absolutely talking to you while I’m watching! Mostly, I’m saying, “Wow, that is so cool, Ali!” or “Yes, do that!”.😂

    I mean I really wanted to tell you that you spelt Aaron's name wrong when you were working on your iPad. It sounds silly but I'm sure we've all had those "Ali you..." while watching.

      I know! I saw that when I was watching it back - HA HA HA. At least I didn't use it - it's hard to talk, write, and think at the same time!

      I had several minutes of contemplating that. Like usually it has two A’s but maybe his parents decided that didn’t make sense so they were gonna go to ours instead when they named him! 🤣 And I felt like I would have noticed that earlier if his name was spelled differently!

    I seriously was yelling at my screen stitch the other ornament and add brads to all the ornaments - I am not proud of myself :-(

    Ali, love the page, your use of the tiny tags and how you finished them off with the striped ribbon. So fun! I have to ask though, is Kris Murray considered one of the ‘baby’ Blazers? We had so much fun watching him and his twin brother Keegan play at Iowa.
