December Daily… part two

Like I mentioned yesterday I had reached my limit of blogging time, according to Lola, so today I am adding the rest. Like I also mentioned yesterday, I had too much fun printing on all sorts of things!
Today I am sharing the printed doily and the printed glassine bag, as well as some more pictures printed on patterned paper. I’m loving my Studio Calico kit and can not wait until my album comes in the mail so I can put it all together.

This is a fabric paper page- I am obsessed with this design. I added a tag with random punched holes then weaved some twine through it and tied a little knot. Also layered book paper, a sticker I stamped on then a glitter star and a brad. The photo of Collin and Lola under the twinkling lights at Riverwoods.
The right page next to the chevron stripe you will find a bag with the journaling printed on it. I also layered some paper, felt, wood banner, paper, book paper, glitter star. Inside are some Jenni Bowlin tickets with some notes on them and photos of family.


The page on the left has a glassine envie with a “MERRY” title, journaling tag inside, cutest wood button, lolli paper flower, gold doily, some of my Dear Lizzy tape and a book paper stamp.


The right page is a transparency, photo printed on a doily and a journaling page sewed together on the left edge. I was so happy that the doily turned out so cute… and that I didn’t destroy my printer. heehee Yesterday I mentioned that I should do a little tutorial about how to print on so many different mediums with confidence.
I added a grouping of embellies on the front of the swirl transparency including a stickers, ticket, Evalicious button & Tim Holtz game spinner.

I printed two pictures of Collin on patterned paper adding a transparency between them. The right page I added journaling above my title and then a pocket for a journaling tag. He really is cooler than Santa!
lol This photo of our Christmas tree warrior cracks me up!

    OMG LOVE…I am a bit confused though. So you don’t have your studio Calico kit yet…So you are just making your own pages to then put into the kit when it arrives? Sorry if thats a dumb question…I checked out the kit (just could not swing that price right now) but anyways I guess I thought it all came IN the kit to make the Dec. Daily?? No matter your girlies are SO adorable:)
