December Daily | Days 16 & 17

 Day 16 and still loving this project.  This was the day of Ryan's office party.  I wanted to make a mini layout type spread, with lots of layers and strips. 
 I used the other half of the washi strip on this Santa photo.  Our third for the month but only the second one to make it in to the album, hee.
 I think I have mentioned how much I love these DD cards from Neela, but my favorite is day 2.  I scraplifted her look here, with the same pink label and sequins. 

A look at my day 17 spread.  I still need to add the journaling, but I love how it is coming together.

Here is the spread with the journaling added in.  I have to tell you that getting this letter from the Postmaster about Santa basically made his year. Happiest mail ever. 

The AE die cut fills one pocket and still looks pretty cute from the back.  I felt kinda mean doing it, but I snipped the letter from the postmaster apart to fit in the page protector.  I then snipped off the return address on the envelope from the postmaster.  I added my journaling directly on top of the letter, mostly because it was easy and it was something different for me.  I realized that I have a lot of happy mail stamps, so I felt I had to use at least one here.  Probably not entirely necessary.

 I added a picture of Avinash hard at work on a color book.  The wood veneer is from Elle's studio.  I was playing around with depth of field in the photo and I like the way putting a heavier embellishment in the foreground really emphasizing that aspect of the photo.

 This page covers our trip to Trail of Lights that evening.   The KP sticker fit the rectangle on this AE journaling card perfectly.  Just snippets of journaling really, not the play by play account of our evening, but the highlights.   The best photo of the night made it's way into the album.  I added a filler card from the SC kit, with another wood veneer from Elle's Studio, and a die cut kraft card from Paislee Press. 

I used a printable tag from Ali Edwards as a mini insert (you can see how I used this tag set before here).  The kraft piece is self-adhesive and comes from the Target handbook meant for holiday cards.  I cut out the mail label, addressed to Avinash and with a Santa stamp from the post office, and pasted it on the back.  Not showing that part for obvious reasons..

Thanks for visiting! In my etsy shop, in addition to my washi tape samplers I added a holiday set as well.  This set is cool because it comes with red and gold glitter twine and glitter ribbon.  Check out the Christmas washi tape sampler here.  I really had fun with the colors here, lots of red, green, silver and gold with pops of teal, chalkboard and lime. Every order from now until the end of December also comes with a free gift. Use code WASHI for 10% off any order or code RAINBOWS for free domestic shipping
