Jane's Days 15, 16, 17 & 18

Day 15

Another page needing some adaptation as I wanted to include several landscape photos. I used a page protector with two 3" x 4" pockets at the top and one 4" x 6" pocket at the bottom as the base. Then I cut up a 12" x 12" page protector into individual 6" x 4" pockets. I attached two of them on top of my base protector and machine stitched them together to give stability.

I made an extra large journalling card to slip into one of the pockets, managing to pick off the circle & star embellishmentstack from the pre-prepared card.

Here's how it looks when open (above) and closed (below).

Day 16

 This page includes the back of that 6" x 4" bottom pocket. I simply added my journalling card and a quotation card side by side with a little repositional glue to keep them in place.

Day 17

Today I made a stamped transparency for one of the pockets.

I used staz-on ink to stamp part of the bauble stamp from Honey Doo Crafts. I then added some sequins and gems to both sides of the transparency.

I added the golden tree on the photo to cover the faces of a couple of folks who I couldn't avoid including in the shot.

 Day 18

 A simple straightforward page showing the back of yesterday's stamped transparency pocket - love how it looks peeping through to day 16's number card. I added a strip of ribbon to the number card and doodled with my gold glitter pen on the journal card.

I hope everyone is going well with their December Dailys.  We would love to see your progress.
Hope to see your 2015 pages!
 And you can link your pre-planning or stash photos up

  1. Gorgeous pages, Jane. LOVE the transparency you have created for the pocket........just fabulous. The Tea House in the Woods sounds wonderful.

    1. Thanks Deb. Trying to be creative within the constraints of my album choice!

  2. Love it when I see scrappy things altered - your adding the 6x4 pockets is really cool! AND the stamped transparency - awesome! It really adds a wonderful point of difference especially looking through to the other pages! Gotta love that! (my fave!)

    1. Thanks Mandy. I like to change things up a bit and surprise myself now and then.

  3. The transparency is cool. The 'booklet' you created fabulous....& you have me a giggle with pulling off stuff offa your pre-prepared page. Tell me about it!!!!

  4. Thanks Lizzy. I'm always pulling stuff off, do you do that too?
