December A Day Photo Fun

My planning for the December A Day photo project has been on my schedule for months, BUT, I am one of those procrastinator types. Along comes my friend and mentor, Michelle Snyder with an AWESOME photo activity plan already done!! And she said I could use it!! Yea, another thing off my list -- so here it is!

Starting today, December the 1st and each day after, I will follow the activities sheet and take a photo BUT that is not all. I am using the White Pines Picture My Life cards, they are WONDERFUL for this project as they have a card for each day -- AND journaling cards, which is what my BUT was about, I plan on journaling the photo - a photo without a story is just a photo. I want to share with my grands the why of the photo.

These Picture My Life cards and page protectors will be stored in the beautiful red floral D Ring album, which I think goes great with Christmas and each year I can add to this album, making it a work in progress!!

I will share more about how I am progressing and more products that I am using to take it up a notch.

For quick reference I put a photo of the Activities on the inside title page - cool layouts, we made these at a recent Close To My Heart event --I LOVE CTMH!!

I would love to hear how you are making this December a memorable one!!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
