stephanie did, too, and we invite you to join us by linking up your own cardpile photos; OR, if you're still working on cards, share them and leave some love for the ones others are making at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥! we'll leave the "linkfest" post open until christmas eve, to provide maximum inspiration, then we'll be back on new year's day with the first prompt of 2015, and we'd love for you to join us!
with such momentous goings-on, i suspect you can guess the subject of my december daily page for day four, right?
dd04: yepper, the big story of the day is having 48+ unique holiday cards ready to sign and mail by the date that, pre-JINGLE BELLES, i would have been either stressily mass-producing or heading out to hallmark. i know it seems utterly crazy to start up again on january first, but the fact is i *LOVE* making christmas cards and once i got my head around the idea of doing it every single week... (which, admittedly, took me a good six months of the first year that stephanie and i started the JB blog!) ...i realized this works for me!* page-wise, what's been working for me this week is one pic + a title + a few embellies, and this time i used up another transparency scrap when my photo looked too stark on the pink page but too overwhelmed on patterned paper. hoping to branch out a little over the weekend... maybe do a couple of pages with hand lettering or more interesting collaged/stamped backgrounds or something, but otherwise i'm pretty happy with how my pages look so far!
