There's a big trend in the memory keeping world to do an album in December , with daily records of what your family gets up to in the lead up to Christmas. I believe this trend started with the very talented Ali Edwards. Love the way she encourages us to record our lives.
With the collaboration of Becky Higgins Project Life and Stampin' Up!, we are able to join in on the fun with our very own product range to document YOUR December. We have just released the fabulous Hello December Project Life card kit, accessory kit and matching album. Today some of the girls from the Memory Keeping with Stampin' Up! Project Life FB group have put together some posts to show you how we are starting our albums for December. The idea is that you do as much as the album as possible beforehand, and then just fill in the journalling and add the pictures in December. here is my cover page.
For my cover page I used some of the cards from the card kit, as well as a couple I made my own using the December Wonder Stamp Set and the embellishment pack. You can view all these products in the links at the bottom of the page.
Here's the first couple of daily pages. I am starting each day with a right hand page, and will decide if I just want back and front, or to add extra pages as I go along. I love the cards that are included in the card kit for numbering the days. There are 31 of these, and stacks of printed cork numbers in the accessories kit, enough to make all the numbers 1-31. You can also circle the day of the week.
See those cute little phrase stickers? There are tow sheets of those (half in Cherry Cobbler and White, half in black and white) in the accessory kit. Together with the wood veneer accents, I think these are my favourite bits in the accessory pack (although I am loving those cork numbers too!).
I've done a few other things to get prepared for my album too. I'm a big fan of strip journalling, so I have done up a whole sheet of phrases and titles I expect to use on my album. I've also made some additional flair buttons, using the digital versions of the December Wonder stamp set and Hello December card kit. These are one inch shapes made in MDS and covered with clear epoxy circles. I made them in the colours which coordinate with the kit too, so everything is matchy matchy!
I also made us some additional 3x4 cards using some of the embellishments in the Hello December accessory pack.
I hope that's given you lots of inspiration to get started on your December albums! You can view the full product range in my Stampin' Up! Online Store, and I have also shown the products in more detail in this recent post.
