Lizzy Days 21-24

Hullo there! Well Christmas is over & I've got quite a few pages to catch you
up on:)

Day 21:
Today we got a HUGE Christmas basket of goodies delivered.
I immediately ate a YUMMY Fudge cookie.
I wanted to use the card & the cookie pack in my DD.
Here they are:
I backed the heart with some patterned paper,
then created a sort of flip folder with the photo & these
2 pieces of ephemera.
It was not closing too well, so I added a
sticky Velcro fastening to help!
Here it is at each stage of opening.
You can see the Velcro dots below a bit better.
Then the left side opens to reveal
my journaling:
And finally the photo lifts up to see the
note from our family.
I decorated the opposite side:
I must say, I was really pleased with how this
page turned out:)

Day 22:
Nothing tricky on this one. Except I THOUGHT I'd finished
it, then decided to add an extra something!
I have lots of the deer that I've cut on my Brother Scan N Cut,
so added one in here. For no other reason than that I could!
Usual trick of drawing ON my photo!
And the Santa hand was used as if  he was
holding the photo!
I used up some alphabet stickers below, &
once again used a 'V' for an 'A' & the 'Y' was a 'J'. I then added the 'hook'
with a gold pen to create the 'Y'.
The 'Q' is used for the 'O':

Day 23:
 Another 'simple' day. I used a big bell behind the photo,
along with some sequin waste & stapled it together.
Staples are marvellously useful tools!
Can you see what I've added, below? Look on the deer!
I'm really liking the way the number page tabs are working.
I'll do this again :)
And those big stars worked a treat down by the journaling strips:

Day 24
I've noticed the bottom of my book is bulkier than
the top. So on this day, I used layers behind
my photo & popped it on foam up the top of the page to try to
make it more 'even':
Hmmmnnn. It was a lazy day! So out with
my sparkly alphas. Still trying to use 'em up!
 And out with the black marker to outline them again!
My layers consist of WRAPPING PAPER, TISSUE PAPER,
and the silver foil lining from a BUTTER CONTAINER.
No joking!! Pretty cool, huh??!!!!

And I think I'll leave this post here.
Christmas Day deserves space of its own,
since we had 15 here including kidlets!

We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
We'd love to see them!

Cheers for now & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
