December Documented | Daily | Journal

I had forgotten to make "live" my post for the last of the pictures of my December journal.

Today I am sharing pictures of the 19th through the 24th.  I never finished day 25/Christmas day and have not decided if I will continue to the end of the year as my daughter suggested.  I have to decide if I should add them to this journal or to my year round Project Life | Life Documented | Pocket Scrapbook.
But for now here are the pictures of what I have.

Day 19th

I used embossing paste and acrylic paint to add the stars to my journal card.
The two pictures on the left have some gold rub-on stars and sentiment.

Days 20-21st

Day 22nd

Day 23rd
I had previously shared here on my blog the pocket card that I would use on this day using Dilo En Español's stamps.
On the right you can see a peek into Christmas eve through the overlay from Websters Pages.

Christmas Eve
Again the overlay to the left this time and the intro to Christmas Eve.  Lots of detail on this one! 
A doily, Memory Box dies, paste embossing in white (snow) and gold (stars), a stamped image, AC tickers, stickles and some embellishments from the same PP Snow Village collection I have been using through out my Simple Stories album.
 New Tradition -Building gingerbread houses!
Enamel dots, PP SV embellishments and paper, washi tape.

Traditions -Open one gift at midnight  (Andresito got to open one way before that :)  and the girls I think because grandma was there (Me) they got to open mhh two or three :) and then it was time to go to sleep.


And we did not forget to leave the cookies for Santa (not a tradition during my childhood).  I also took a picture of the girls letters to Santa just so I can document which of course I made sure we hid!

There are so many pictures of Christmas that it hard to choose, but hopefully I get around to deciding for at least a couple to add to this album and the rest I can use on traditional scrapbook layouts or on my pocket scrapbook.

Thanks for stopping by!

Que Puntada | DEE Feb Challenge

And this is my 5th entry, I believe, to DEE February Challenge

Challenge: Pinterest pin inspiration from one of DEE's Pinterest boards

This time I actually was inspired by several pins found on the Que Puntada board HERE
where you can find creations by Liz, Yoshira and Abby.



 I really like how this card came out even though I had a little mishap at the end when stamping the stitching around the card.... doesn't it always happen like that? :)
First I lay down all the stamps where I wanted them and "picked" them up with a clear block, inked it and stamped it in one shot.
I die cut the faux stitching with PTI dies.  The heart was die cut with a MFT heart die and "embedded" in the card (cut first in place desired, cut again in red and placed in spot).
I stamped again the spool, the scissors and the tiny heart, hand cut them and added on top of the stamped images.  I wrapped some twine on the spool, note that I kept the stamped needle (I could have added pins or a real needle but decided it to leave it).  All the grey items are colored with a sharpie in metallic silver while the measuring tape and sewing machine where colored with Copics.
Finished it with a few embellishments such as enamel dots, button and a TH brad.
Almost forgot that I added a stitched scalloped edge cut using a MCT die.

Hope you can enter!
