December Daily · scrapbooking

december daily, days 18 & 19


Onto the backside of the remember pocket from day 17, I adhered a large photo of the Garden Court at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco. It is stunning to behold in any season and the large Christmas trees in the center seem dwarfed by the grandeur of the ceiling. The cork numbers are from my stash, Crate Paper I think, that are no longer available. The gold foil messy circle is from the DD main kit.

On the next page, I put a view from our room at the Westin St. Francis. We hotel hop a lot when we travel to keep our hotel rewards status at a high level. It’s annoying sometimes, but it’s cool seeing lots of different hotels. The journal card and washi strip title is from the Jasmine Jones mini kit and I date stamped in the space there. I was going to put something in the other little box there, but must have forgotten. And a 4×6 photo of my crazy wife, being silly at brunch.

After an early breakfast at Lefty O’Douls, we went to a beautiful Mass at Church of the Advent of Christ the King. So good being surrounded by incense smoke and good music. Then it was off to The Castro for brunch, complete with all you can drink mimosas (hold the OJ). Loved bumming around the City this Sunday.


The next day we got back home. With all the traveling we had been doing, we just HAD to get our Christmas cards out in the mail! I meant to do them before we left for Walt Disney World, but simply ran out of time. I used the December Calendar stamp set to label a card from the Jasmine Jones mini kit plus a rolling date stamp. The star paper is from the main kit that I cut to 3×4 and adhered the chipboard 19 to. I put these with a 4×6 photo of me making sure all the names were correct. I saved an actual Christmas card and used a page protector as a guide for the holes to slip directly into the rings. I ordered these from Minted back in October and I was very happy with them.

Thanks for stopping by!
