Julie's Days 5 and 6

How is your December Daily coming along. Mine is getting there slowly.
 I have some major catching up to do.

Day 5

I tried to create a piece raisin toast as the background using two Tim Holtz distress paints a light and a medium brown in colour. The medium brown went down first in a rough square and once dry, the lighter one was added in patches to represent some butter.  
Then with a brown distress stain, dabbed it over parts of the area to make raisins.
 Some coffee themed stamps from Purple Onion and some printed words to finish it off.

Day 6 
Was a busy day so have two parts to the days events.
Santa visit.
Part 1- left side.

I wanted to get a 3d look to my page so created this one in layers. 
Some stamping and adhered the photo on a black cardstock base, 
this was then placed inside a plastic bag
(recyled embellishment plastic bag packaging which fit perfectly -see above )
 The second layer is on the outside of the plastic bag, with a bit more stamping, 
3d diecuts, some twine and stickers.
In the photo above to the right-  you can see the plastic bag page has been added to a strip of black cardstock punched with two holes to fit the binder rings.

Day 6
Part 1- right side
Three conjoined insert pages.... embellished on the outside.
From the photo below to the left....  is another a strip of black cardstock punched with two holes to fit the binder rings, is adhered to the plastic inserts.

Day 6
Part 2 - Christmas card photo shoot (the reverse side to the above)
 A series of photo cards with sticker layering on the outside of the inserts again.

We would love to see how your December Daily pages are coming along.  
You can share them with us HERE.


  1. Julie, this is wonderful. I love your raisin toast page and also what you have done with that plastic packaging ...... very clever.

  2. Super pages. Loving the raisin toast - sounds delicious. And that looks a seriously pretty Winter Wonderland display at Gateways.

  3. Looks awesome Julie, love that you recycle packaging... always a plus!

  4. Super cute pages :) I'm behind myself seems to happen this time of the year :) Love the way you added more photos to the page :)
