WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages.

Jane's Days 3, 4, & 5

Day 3

Today's number card starts with a golden embossed Uniko stamp with the number mat centred on top of it.

I finished it off with a narrow ribbon. The ribbon is wrapped round and stuck on the back and then a smaller piece of ribbon is tied round it to give the appearance of being knotted. I find it keeps things flatter doing it this way as I always curl up the base paper or have the ribbon too slack if I try to just tie it round.

The journal card has a little cluster at the top made from four different dies and an enamel dew drop sticker. You'll notice on the finished layout the card is slightly different - that's because I forgot to take a photo before I wrote on it, learning the ropes as I go along!

The cluster is on the right hand side and I added a little piece of paper washi tape at the bottom of the journalling.

And here's the finished page:

Day 4

Another stamped image for today's number card, but this time I stamped it onto a scrap of card and die cut it before adhering it to the base paper. It was difficult to get a good clean image on the slightly embossed base paper so this seemed the best way to overcome that problem. 

I simply finished it off by adding a piece of knotted twine - once again using the same method as I explained above.

The journal card is very similar to day one, I simply reversed the colours.

And the completed page:

Day 5

Today's number card uses the same Uniko stamp as day 3, but this time embossed in black. I also added part of the negative die cut left over from day 2 and a couple of adhesive gems.

These five number cards will form the basis of all the rest of my number cards and will be repeated throughout my album.  I like how this give continuity and flow through the album and also means I can get on and prepare them all before things get too hectic.

The journal card is very simple and consists of a piece of washi tape with a little envelope stuck on top. I popped a star paper clip to the flap.

And the completed page:

You'll notice I often add digital elements to my photos and so far they've all been Katie Pertiet designs that I buy from Designer Digitals.
