Day 1 - Documenting December | Victoria CalvinDec 04, 2017
Hello my friends! It is that time of year where many of us are starting to document our December memories. This will be my fourth year completing a December album specifically dedicated to all of the experiences, events, and happenings that occur in my life during this month. To be honest, I was on the fence about taking on this project. Then I saw the new Felicity Jane Joy Kit and well...my decision was made! This kit is truly amazing!
To begin my album, I used a 4x8 punched card with the heading "Christmas Wish List" - I will use this insert to document all of the happenings, events, and activities that I wish to do over the holiday season. To add a bit of interest, I stamped a tree from the Joy stamp set in Always Artichoke, and created a tab using my tab punch and the olive green solid card stock from the kit. To the tab, I added the word sticker "December" from the Joy Sticker set.
Next, I inserted a small pocket (from my stash) and created a tag for journaling. To the pocket, I added a buffalo check die cut and a Joy chipboard button. To the tag, I added a black and white stripe ribbon that was included in the kit, stamped the sentiment "The Story" to the bottom of the tag, and adhere a tiny wood veneer tree to add a bit of interest and dimension.
Lastly, to the pocket page, I added a photo and a piece of the patterned velum from the kit. To the photo I stamped the sentiment "Dear Santa" from the Joy stamp set. And to the bottom pocket, I adhered a small doily and a wood veneer number "1" to represent Day 1 of my album.
