I must say I had a little bit of a hard time taking pictures of my prep work. I'm using all of the transparent 3X4 cards included in the kit, paired with some pre-made, transparent numbered snowflakes that I posted on Instagram a few weeks back. It didn't come out very pretty in the pictures but I can envision what the end result will be.
I'm trying to take a better approach this year as well. Last year I thought I could journal every day, take some pictures every day and send them off to be printed, then on my days off, bring it all together. Not a strong plan coming from the girl that shoots from the hip on most days. Also, everyone came down with the stomach flu for days at the beginning of December, which didn't make for great stories. This year, I'm trying to stick with one story per day, use these handy dandy prompts, and journal each day using the Momento App. I also purchased a bunch of digital stamps and overlays from Designer Digitals from Cathy Zielske and Ali Edwards. Super excited about them!
So here is my prep work so far. Excuse the bad photos. I'm still trying to master that camera of mine.
Cover. I kept it simple with some light gold paint from Martha Stewart. The snowflake is a wood ornament from Michaels.
Page one. My gentle reminder not to get caught up in the stress that people feel during this holiday season. It is so not worth it and I try hard to keep things lighthearted during December.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
*please note, I just looked at this on my phone and the photos look very distorted.*
