Has this been the fastest December in history? Or is that just what happens with each successive year in middle age and beyond?
I have a few more pages to share today but first, Santa came to my house little early this year. He was so thoughtful! I was so surprised! (Note: in this scenario, I am Santa and the only surprise was that I apparently have NO clue how to plug anything in because I tried to and there was zero power. And then I called The North Pole B+H Photo Video to request an exchange.) That said, here's what he brought me:
Oh for cute! Yes, the PhotoMate Charm arrived on my doorstep last night, and after Dan showed me how electrical plugs work, I was up and running. I decided to get a small printer for two reasons:
1. My main photo printer doesn't print 4 x 6 photos anymore and hasn't for about a year or more. (Read about all of the things I use in crafty tech life here.)
2. Ali said it was awesome. And as you may or may not know, Ali doesn't front.
So far, I am in love and I've only printed out three photos, including the two in the bottom two pockets on the right side of this spread.
It's quick, quiet enough and the color quality is excellent.
It also does such a great job printing borders on things. This will go into the album when I put together yesterday's page. Note: I added a thin outline inside the photo, too.
Note No. 2: Aidan hates this photo.
Look at that symmetrical border. Anal retentive scrapbookers UNITE!
Here's the previous page. Note: I used a Holiday Story Card on top of Aidan's photo, but deleted the text that comes in the overlay and added my own text box.
I still love my kraft cut out cards.
If anything, the Silhouette is my favorite Christmas crafting tool of all time. Amen. (Learn how to make cards like this here.)
