Day 1 - Documenting December | Victoria Calvin

Day 1 - Documenting December | Victoria Calvin

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 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.
