I’m Ready for the Holiday!
I can’t believe the holiday season is upon us. Thanksgiving is in five days and I see Christmas energy swelling all around me, with some of the neighbors decorating their homes and retailers running gift ads for a month already. I am so excited that today I finished the foundation pages for my first-ever December Daily Album. I am officially ready for the holiday!
Following many other scrapbookers online, I learned about the December Daily Album this year, inspired by Ali Edwards. There are some amazing kits out there for this project, and if you spend some time on Pinterest you’ll find some beautiful examples of what people create for their December Daily Album. I collected a few on my Pinterest Board to keep for inspiration as I work on the album during the month.
I decided to combine a few things I already had in my stash to do the project this year. A couple of weeks ago, I got started on the album when I met my sister-in-law for a girls weekend of nothing but scrapbooking! Yes, its quite a treat that we get to do that. We drink tons of coffee, stay up too late and usually get so much done. This time we even took a jaunt from Orlando to St. Petersburg, FL to the amazing Whim So Doodle scrapbook store.
After catching up on my Project Life pages, I started my December Daily album. I’m using a red Simple Stories binder and the Magical paper line from Studio Calico as my core materials. I varied my interior pages using full size pages, 4×6 pockets and the multi-pocket pages just to give myself some options since I have no idea what photos I’ll have, what memorabilia I’ll find along the way, or what stories I’ll have to tell. I don’t usually set up a book without images or materials so it was different to set up a book this way. But I am truly inspired now about taking photos and already having a “structure” together to capture the holiday this year.
Below are are a few of my cards or pages that I did in my album. Are you doing a December Daily album? Comment below with a link so I can see your pages!
