December 1 / what we did : drove to our favorite tree lot in town + picked out our Christmas tree.
this one from Ali Edwards. My plan to keep it simple this year will include using a variety of digital elements as well as adding my journaling (especially if it's lengthy) right to the photo before printing.
Studio Calico kit, my pre-made date card, and a wood disc that was in the Cuppa Project Life kit. Seemed like a very appropriate use on this day. I replaced the navy and white twine that came on it with plain white cord. Then I dangled a printable label from a Tim Holtz tiny clip and added that to the cord. The label reads "for the love of real trees." To hold it in place, I machine stitched the top edge with metallic gold thread.
On the 'oh Christmas tree' card, I dabbed a few ink dots along the edge using Hero Arts ink daubers (tide pool and green hills) for a little color + to tie it into this spread. I stapled some woodgrain sequins to the calendar card where the open areas of those certain letters would be - again for some added color + texture.
