December Daily 2016

December Daily® season is just around the corner! And Christmas came early for the Digital Creative Team. As part of the creative team, we got early access to this year’s main kit and a mini kit and album of our choosing 🙂

I was so excited to work with the 6×8 Merry Merry album and Liz Tamanaha’s mini kit in addition to this year’s main kit by Ali Edwards. Here’s the video to see what’s included in these amazing kits!!

In all honesty, I have a terrible track record with completing this project. I love Christmas. I love all the beautiful scrapbooking supplies and embellishments. I buy a kit every year. And I’ve got 1 out of 5 albums actually completed. I’m guilty of making it waaaay more complicated than it needs to be and overthinking things.

I started playing with this year’s kits (because who DOESN’T love digging into a box full of new products!)  to figure out how my album might come together. I printed a few photos from last Christmas and within 2 hours, I had 7 days worth of stories pieced together (minus a bit of journaling)!! For me that meant 1) I’ve CLEARLY been making things too complicated and 2) the kits are fantastic (which really should go without saying…but the proof is there).

If this is the kind of project that has caught your attention, here’s a couple of helpful links to check out:

What is December Daily®? It’s an awesome memory keeping project, started by Ali Edwards, to document your December/holiday stories with photos and words. But she can explain this far better than I can 🙂 Check it out here! 

All of this year’s kits (as well as a few items from previous years), stamps, inks and extras are available in Ali Edwards’ online shop.

The kits and stamps will also be available digitally as of October 10th.

If this is your first year taking on this project or you’re just as inspired by Ali as I am, you might be interested in checking out the “Storytelling with December Daily®” workshop. I took the class last year and LOVED the video walk throughs of all her previous albums. They are so awesome! It’s scheduled to begin November 1st and registration will likely open very shortly (with an alumni rate for people who took the class last year).
