You may have already heard about December Daily started by Ali Edwards. It is a way to document each day of December in an album to look back on in years to come to see a real life documentation of your and your family.
I have never joined in with December Daily before as I thought that I had nothing interesting to record each day during the month of December. I thought that the content would be too boring or competitive but there must be one thing each day worth documenting. Simple pleasures and real life and a real window into our lives.
One of my team recently did an Inspiration Station at our team event and focussed on Project Life and she inspired me (thanks Karin) to make an album this year and honestly it was far easier than I thought.
So here is the official line from Ali Edwards – About December Daily®
December Daily® is a December mini-album project that documents the 25 days leading up to Christmas. The simple goal is to capture the spirit of December via one story per day.
Over the last seven years this project has become one of the highlights of my year and a beautiful community of memory keepers has come together to share their December stories with one another. It’s an awesome way to document and celebrate the season.
So in a couple of hours I had completed all the prep and made the core of my album. Now all I need to do it take a photo of our activities each day in December, print them off and decorate/finish off once the holiday is complete.
I have not scrapbooked in a while and I am super excited that this has got me inspired again. I love it because it is simple and not overwhelming and for once in my life I am ahead of the game and organised and it only took a few supplies and 2 hours!
So let me show you my interpretation of the December Daily using Project Life by Stampin’ Up!
These are the supplies I used (and nothing else) and they are listed at the bottom of this post if you wish to purchase them and join in the fun too!
And here is the cover of my album. I am going to print out my favourite photo to measure 6×9″ and add it to the cover and decorate the photo.
Can you also see the post it note telling me how many photo’s I need and what size. It will be so easy to order them after Christmas to finish my album. When they arrive I will simply slide them into the pockets and finish with my final embellishments and journalling.
So who is joining me?
