..:: december daily :: days 5 & 6 ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with a layout and process video for you. This might seem strange, but stick with me! I am using sloth flair in my December Daily album!  Here is a look at Days 5 and 6 in my album.

Day 6 is all about my sloth wrapping paper!  I have loved sloths for years, but apparently they are really popular right now -- and they are everywhere!  So, I was super excited to fine sloth Christmas wrapping paper for this year!  So, I thought I might as well use that sloth flair, right? Especially since Day 5 is about being so tired I went to bed with my daughter at 8:30. That's also sloth-ish, right? So, I added another sloth flair for that page! here is a closer look at Day 5.


I added my typed journaling below my photo and did some stitching around the photo. On Day 6 I used a big photo and kept it pretty simple with flair , a number, and a couple of enamel dots.


For my journaling on Day 6 I made a little pocket (between pages 6-7) to add my journaling on a tag that I made using my manual die cutting machine.

Here are a couple of close ups of the awesome flair from the Sloth Love Flair Set.


This two-day spread came together quickly and I love the 'non-Christmas" flair on this page! I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

You can find process videos of my title page, and days 1-4 right here. Thank you so much for stopping by! I will see you again soon! XO o.g.

Hi friends! I am up on The Cut Shoppe blog today with Days 3 & 4 of my December Daily 2018. Here is a look at this two page spread:

For Day 3 I used the "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out Kid" from the Merry Movies cut file. 

I cut the file using white card stock and then I backed it with patterned paper. I used the same paper to back the file that is on my other page -- this helped tie the two pages together. 

For my journaling I did journal strips on Day 3 and tucked a tag behind my phone on Day 4. I have really enjoyed adding more of the story to this project!

I am using a lot of papers and embellishments from Crate Paper's Merry Days collection that I received in my Clique Kits Holiday Hipster Kit.  I have also added embellishments from Color Cast Designs throughout this project.  This is such a fun project! So far I have made a process video of each day as I go. I am adding them to this playlist if you'd like to see more.

So, of course, I made video of my process for this spread, if that's something that suits your fancy!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you again soon! XO o.g.

Hello friends! I am up on the The Cut Shoppe blog today my first Holiday layout of the season!  However, it's not really a holiday layout it's about friendship and coffee -- featuring the red cups that we all know and love!

I used a couple of different files included in the Jave Script cut file. I also had my Silhouette cameo cut hole so I could stitch around the title -- and while I was at it -- I used the Silhouette software to write my journaling. I used the sketch pen feature of the Cameo to write right on the layout!  Here are some close ups:

I used some older Elle's Studio from my stash, the red card is an exclusive card from Clique Kits, and that lovely flair is from a set  called Donut Love 2 from {a flair for buttons}!

I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you again soon! :-) XO o.g.
