Hi friends and welcome back to December Daily 2022! Yes, it is indeed December 01 and I am so excited to begin this month, but I am also over here still making foundation pages! Ha! I could make pages like this over and over again. Lately I have been loving working with digital kits to create hybrid scrapbook pages, and so when Ali Edwards released her 2022 December Daily products, I purchased the Main Kit in digital format. Today I thought I would share how I’ve prepped a few of the items in that kit in order to prep some hybrid pages. If you’d like to see all the posts related to my 2022 December Daily project, check out this link: 2022 December Daily Album. Follow along with my tutorial video below on using Photoshop and the Silhouette to prepare hybrid foundation pages.
I’ve counted up and I think so far I have about 22 foundation pages completed for this year. Since it is the 1st of December, I plan to call it here and begin working on my actual completed pages from here on out. I thought I would share these pages that were shown in the video here as well. This first one was a cut file in the Main Kit, and all I did was overlay the patterned paper in Photoshop, bring it into Silhouette, and cut out the o’s. This will be so easy to pop in photos behind it, add journaling and the day number, maybe add a few embellishments, and call it done. So pretty!
These hand drawn frames are a ton of fun, in the digital kit they are called vellum shipping tags, but I thought they would be cute laid out as a grid pattern. First I printed them onto vellum, which would be so cool as an insert into the album like any other vellum. But I also had the idea to use the tags as frames.
So I also printed them onto white card stock and had the Silhouette cut out the insides of the frames. I made this into a 2-page spread, and then down below you can see the layout with some of the physical die cuts tucked behind the frames. This is a fun play on dimension!
You can also see the puffy stickers I’ve printed and cut, along with some of the plastic words I’ve printed and cut onto vellum. I added a few of the physical die cut embellishments behind the frames so you can kind of get an idea what this page will look like once it’s completed!
And with that, I am ready to roll with December’s pages. How about you? Have you gotten any foundation pages done this year? No worries if you haven’t, the month is only just beginning. I hope you have a wonderful season and lots of fun crafty time this month. I will be sharing my progress as I am able this month, and I hope you are inspired!
