I always forget how fun it is to just play with stuff. And make stuff. And then see it and be all, “That is some cuuuuuute stuff!”
Before I tackled my Day One story, I pulled out one of the 12-pocket page protectors and decided to fill it up with stuff. I used some of the December Daily kit wood pieces and filled in with my own little 2 x 2 card creations, all which use various CZ Design Digital products.
Here’s the front:
Here’s the back:
And if you’d like to know how to make your own squares in Photoshop, here is a tutorial to show you how to create a whole mess of 2 x 2 inch printable squares for your own mini pockets (or really, any pockets, as this tutorial applies to all sizes of cards.)
Now for the Day One entry. I decided to use a story from the weekend, as my girl was still in town for her Thanksgiving break.
And no, you’re eyes are not deceiving you, it’s true. I MINC’ED it up, people!
That’s right. I am now the proud owner of a Minc mini.
I’ve been wanting one for a while and when I realized that I was going to use a gold album for this year’s project, I figured now was as good a time as any.
My plan for now is to create day cards similar to the ones I made last year and I’ll foil them all with gold.
I have a laser printer and so far, the quality and the gold coverage is excellent. Sure, I can occasionally see a little speck of black peek through, but maybe I need to try a hotter setting on the Minc. For now, it’s all systems go!
So that’s my Day One. I am going to be telling at least one more story for today from the end of November. Sometimes you just gotta play with the timeline and make it work.
Note: I’m hoping to upload a free striped numbers card file for any reader who wants to play! Look for that file coming tomorrow.
