Today I would like to share my Daily December album with you. The Daily December album project was developed by Ali Edwards, one of the most influential scrapbooking personalities in the world. I have been a long time fan of her style and approach.
The concept behind the project is very easy. You simply create an album that will be filled with a picture/story from each day in December. The point is to have the album done BEFORE December so that when the holidays come, you can simply fill it as the days go on. By creating the album in advance, you can work on it every day and not forget the little things that make the season extra special. This project was particularly appealing to me because:
- It is Elias’s first Christmas – and I want to be extra attentive to everything that makes it special.
- I love mini albums
- It encouraged me to use my stash of Christmas products
- I loved Ali’s album last year
Below is a video I made showcasing some of my album, as well as what else I plan to do to make the project work for me.
The foundation of my album was one of those dollar albums from Target (I always buy several when they have them in stock). I painted the covers using ruby paint from Making Memories. I smeared the paint over the Jenni Bowlin numbers as well, as then removed some of it (while it was still wet) with a Magic Eraser. The paper that was not cardstock I mounted on cardstock (from the album) and the cardstock and transparent pages are not mounted to anything.
I really think that the large envelope (featured in the video) filled with some basic embellishments will help me quickly complete the album pages each day in December.
