Let It Snow
I jumped at the chance to work ahead on a little December Daily spread using a variety of the papers, cards, tags, and flair, and it was just the thing I needed to tell the story of some holiday traditions and get me even more excited (if that’s possible) for what’s ahead this year.
I love the patterned papers Elise made from the doodles, and wanted to get the most out of each sheet, so I’ve trimmed down the candy cane hearts and will be sprinkling strips of it throughout the album, I just know it.
When I was working on designs for the cards, I couldn’t help but think of some of our traditions, and baked goods is definitely at the top of the list. Using the “Bakes with Love” card to list out some of my husband’s favorites, and using my grandmother’s cards to tuck the recipes in the bottom pocket, I will not only have this memory, but I will never be without the directions to make it a reality.
The full size tree page was so good just on it’s own, but a few enamel dots to make the ornaments pop and a little journaling about my grandmother’s glass ornaments that I display each year, and it’s a fun, easy way to capture a memory.
I cannot tell you how much love went into these designs, or the process of deciding on this little kit, and then, of course, all of Elise’s care when pulling it together and packaging them up, but I can tell you that we were inspired by the incredible talent of everyone who has been supporting our crafty adventures together this year and using what we make to create such awesome work.
I am so grateful for this community and the opportunity to try something new and offer it out into the world. I am so excited to see what’s next!
