Jane's Days 18 - 21

Day 18

Another wonderful woodgrain paper from Kaiserkraft Sea Breeezes was chosen as the base for today's page. Three PL cards, a journal card and the number was quickly added on top.

Then I punched some leaves from pearlescent brown card and created a border down the left hand sid I also added some red gems, brown pearls and two strips of the hessian ribbon that I used as the washing line on my cover.

Journalling added and the page was complete.

And here's the photo of almost the whole gang. 

Day 19

 A couple of journalling cards, some ribbon and a stamped Honey Doo Crafts Snowflake Reindeer plus the number was how I began.

Picking up on the reindeer elements I added some wooden snowflakes to the chopped in half card on the left hand side. And plenty of sparkly gems and three word stickers went into the mix too.

Journalling added to complete the page.

Here's the digi photo page for today.

I decided to add extra photos about today and made a transparency shaker page to insert too. 

I die cut some stars and stitched most of the way round the large star, inserted some sequins and then closed the star with more stitching. The smaller stars are floating freely and add to the movement.

Here's how it looks inside my album.

 Here's a clear view of the photo. Have you spotted that pompom fringing that I removed from a page earlier in my album? Waste nothing! And I'm loving how it looks here!

Day 20

So today's page started oh so simply ....

And then got a bit busier with the addition of a stamped bauble, greeting, music notes, some grungy sprinkles and a star and brown pearls .......

.... expect you've guessed - it finally got well and truly layered up. I used washi tape, three almost funny jokes from inside yesterday's crackers - the rest were so bad they didn't get saved - and some bright trios of sparkly gems.

 And look who came to sit on my Christmas tree - think I love the elf hunt as much as he does!

Day 21

Something a bit different for today. I made a background out of ribbon and digi strips and adhered the journal card and number to the middle. This was inspired by Lizzy's page here.

I added the journalling round the edge, just like Lizzy's page. I tried it in black and then went over it in white to make it show up better.

And, a bit like Mandy, now the days are getting fuller my crafting is getting simpler. Not that these precious photos need a lot added, so I'm happy for them to speak for themselves.

As this was such a special day - all three grandchildren together all day - I decided to add a couple of extra photos. I cut a piece of patterned paper slightly larger than the 3x4 photos and attached the photos either side - back to back on to a chevron transparency.

It took a bit of time to rumage through my stash to find sized matched word stickers so that they looked OK on both sides of the transparency. I also added some gems back to back too.
