Jane's Days 10 -13

Day 10

Today's page started with another of those gorgeous Wonky Tonk stamps - this time a penny farthing bicycle loaded with presents and few dangly accent stamps from the same set.

And then it got coloured and washi taped and arrowed!

And here's my tags! I'm sharing how I made them on my blog today - here. The digital elements are from the Katie Pertiet Antibes collection, Ali Edwards Cozy Christmas and ep Merry Little Christmas.

Day 11

I took a quote card from Simple Stories Mistletoe Kisses and matted it onto a PL card - love this quote, love the film too! The tree  is also from the Simple Stories collection.

I stamped and die cut the bauble and tied a ribbon bow to it, added some word strips and, of course, dazzled up the tree with gems and pearls. Oops and spot that handwriting squidgy moment! All part of the daily journalling process and I'm happy to embrace it as part of who I am.

I'm loving the addition of some blue to the banner, makes it so much brighter. The digital elements are from Katie Pertiet Antibes and Ali Edwards Christmas Star & Cozy Christmas.

Day 12

Another quote and a word from the Simple Stories Mistletoe Kisses collection and a gorgeous shiny embossed background paper from Kaisercraft's Sea Breeze pad got my page off to a great start..

A few little additions - a holly sprig, some washi tape and pearl gems and the journalling to complete this page.

I used a journal card from Katie Pertiet's Antibes collection for the stripy panel down the side of the photograph by rotating it round and hiding the bits I didn't want to be seen under the photo. I often use this trick in my paper crafting too, although I would be thrifty and trim off the unused part for use on another occasion.

 Day 13

The stamp I used as a starting point for today's page was a magazine freebie - always a good source of extra stash and I'm a bit mean really as I only buy magazines when I want the giveaways!

I created the quote card using Photoshop Elements and then matted it onto the woodgrain Bloom & Grow paper - the same as my cover -  and added a card snowflake from Mistletoe Kisses.

Apart from one sticker and the inevitable sparkly gems I decided to leave this page fairly unadorned - it is pretty full on with the stamping anyway! And apologies about the photo colours being so different, they were taken at different times of the day, but the ones below on the finished page are the closest to real life.

Today's photo includes more journalling as well as a very smug selfie - you need to read it to find out why! The digital elaments are from Katie Pertiet Antibes with the writing on the little button adapted to something more relevant and Ali Edwards Cozy Christmas with the colour of the text changed to brown. The font for the journalling is also Ali Edwards.

I'm happy to say I'm keeping on track with my December album. How about you? We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us below:
