December Daily Part Three | Ann-Marie Morris
December Daily Part Three | Ann-Marie Morris

PINK PAGE // If this page looks an awful lot like the previous page, then you would be…correct. Ha! Originally, I planned on inserting a different colored paper in the backside of the glassine bag, but I loved the way the hot pink looked so much, I decided to keep it as is. The pink patterned paper on the outside of the bag is actually a postcard I purchased from Cotton + Flax at Renegade and the gold screenprint on top of that is from Life Love Paper. I also bunched up a little bit of this faux-tinsel yarn (I’m obsessed with this stuff!) and secured it to the underside of my photo with a gold paperclip. (Additional supplies: date stamp | StazOn Ink | Sharpie Ballpoint Pen | washi tape | snowflake printable that I designed – link to come!)

TEAL PAGE // First of all, I was so psyched when I saw this free printable on Pinterest (from the new-to-me and super inspiring blog, A Pair of Pairs) because I knew instantly that I wanted to print it on teal vellum for my book! Love when that happens. To preserve as much of the printable design as possible, I kept my embellishments to a minimum: a photo, a few strips of washi + American Crafts Glitter Tape, and my trusty date stamp. Easy enough to finish in less than ten minutes. Just how I like it.

Random sidenote: I feel like I’m always chasing daylight when it comes to photographing my projects these days – I just can’t seem to stay on top of it! And the thing is, I love more nighttime than daytime in the winter, but I have totally been struggling with it over the past few weeks. These photos were shot on the end of the driveway (of all places) with approximately five seconds of natural light to spare – gah! When and where do you shoot your photos?

    I feel your pain, I’m chasing daylight too! I’ve been working a couple of projects lately but when I get back from school/work it’s already dark(ish). It’s so frustrating. Anyway, lovely scrapbooking! I’m in love with that hot pink.

    I LOVE THOSE PAGES! I am doing fun colors like those for my mini Christmas album this year, too. Hope to start it this week, after I take plenty of pics of my fam over the next few days. ;) and thanks for that link of the freebie! I will be sure to use that in my album! ;)
    Merry Christmas!
