December 6: I spent the day at the annual Big Design Market with a friend, browsing for Christmas presents. I later discovered that my Mum was there, at the same time, too. Lunch was a couple of tacos from the Taco Truck outside, and the gastronomic splurge of the day, a raspberry flavoured macaroon. Yum.
For the left side I created an informal grid of business cards and labels. I collected many from interesting stalls during the day but ended up just using those associated with my purchases.
On the right side I included a full page photo, with journaling and digital element added before printing. I took a white foam board into my backyard, arranging some of my purchases for an overhead photo. I knew I wanted to include that journaling so made sure to include some white space in the arrangement for that.

December 7: This page was inspired by a Story Starter from Simple Scrapper's Membership collection, and the design based on a sketch template to be released in January. The original sketch template was intended for a 8.5x11 layout, but I love how easy it was to scale down.
The stamped and embossed sentiment is from the Magic Story Sparks kit by Ali Edwards. The journaling is stamped, letter by letter, with a little set of wood block stamps. I bought them at a stationary shop on a whim a few years ago, but they've turned out to be one of my most used supplied.
