If you remember, I was planning on making one for each of my 3 daughters.
I had already made the cover pages.
I had printed out the photos.
So tonight I thought I would get it all done......NOT.
This is all I managed to do tonight.
Make 3 sets of number labels for each page.
I was thinking of stamping the numbers, then I thought of using stickers. But then the best idea came to me.....
The first thing I did was get my daughter Kristy to print up from the computer, the days of the month.
Now if I did it, it would have taken me all day to figure out the size and spacing.
So I know better, and handed it off to Kristy :)
It only took her two tries to figure out the spacing for my punch to fit in between each number.
After punching out all 93 of them, I then inked them all with one of my favourite coloured inks.
After I was content with the inking, I then punched out the background out of this burgundy (even though it looks bright dark pink) cardstock with the scallop oval punch.
Lastly I adhered all the 93 numbers to the fronts of the 93 punched out scallop ovals.
Now this took me most of the night.
Another reason it took me most of the night, is because at first I was going to punch them out with my scallop circle punch. But after punching out 93 scallop circle pieces of cardstock, I came to the conclusion that I think I would like the oval shape better.
I wonder why it takes me so long to finish anything, lol.
I did quickly place each photo and label in the correct sleeve of the album.
Hopefully I will be able to journal and put them together tomorrow.
Onto My Day:
I received a welcoming surprise visit from my girlfriend Deb. I love when my friends visit. But do they always have to show up when my house is a mess and I have to rush to get dressed. Well I guess I would never see them if I waited for that to happen, teehee.
Thank you for your short visit Deb, I always love to see you. Sadly she had to go back to work, so our visit was short
I hope you all have had a creative Friday and enjoy your weekend :)
