December Daily® 2023 | Story 19

Welcome to Story 19 in my 2023 December Daily® album. 

When I played around with foundation pages prior to December one of the things I set aside was this plastic nutcracker, the red/white envelope, and the vellum tags from the Main Kit. I didn't identify a specific story to tell during December but left it open to whatever might come up. I decided to play with that today to document some of the text messages and screenshots I've taken/received over the last week or so. Taking screenshots of family text message chains, kids social accounts, emails, etc are a great way to show the technology of our time and bring in some other voices from your life. 

Let's take a look at the process video: 

Here's the Table of Contents for this story: 

The red/white envelope was included with this year's  envelope bundle. I knew that I wanted to use the nutcracker on the outside of the envelope and when I realized that one of the die cut labels would fit under his arms I was so excited. I used Maco Sticker Paper again for the title and then added gold puffy numbers on top between his arms. 

For my story I gathered up a collection of screenshots and printed them either 2.5 inches x 5.5 inches or 3 inches x 5.5 inches. The vellum tags are from the Main Kit and the paper tags are from the pattern paper pack ( digital version available). Initially I envisioned that the screenshots would fill up the entire space on the bottom of the tags but most of them ended up with a border that I actually like even better. 

I didn't back my tags with anything but you could totally add more photos, screenshots, or pattern paper. 

I used red line tape to adhere the nutcracker to the envelope. 

I added eyelets to the holes at the top of each tag and used ribbons from this year's  Trim Pack

    Hi Ali, these are great, do you just take a screenshot of these text messages? Wondering how you get so much in one image? Thanks

    Oh how I love this! Can’t wait to begin working on my project after the 25th - this is a definite scrap-lift for me!
