I know you may or may not be ready to hear it folks, but December is approaching and I, for one, like to embrace the holiday season fully. I especially love documenting it too. I know, I know – it can be stressful to document during the holiday season! And that’s where we come in!

If you’re familiar with Ali Edwards you might also be familiar with her project {December Daily}.

The idea is that you document your stories during the holiday season. It’s a great opportunity to keep track of traditions from year to year, package all of your holiday activities into one great book or just a cool mini album to make.

The best part of this project is that you can prepare your album ahead of time, usually during the month of November, so that you can easily add photos + words during December. This, of course, makes the process of documenting the holidays even easier! It’s a great way to capture all those details of the holiday preparations and the season in one place without the added pressure of scrapbooking them when you are burnt out from all the festivities in January!

I’ve completed 6 December Daily Albums over the years and like Ali, I’ve always used a mini album for my project. I love the smaller size in particular because it’s truly manageable, and The Paperie will have {a selection of album choices} coming in November!

The cool thing about December Daily is that you can prep your pages using a kit – even pre-making layouts so that all that’s left to do is simply add pictures afterwards. In the past I’ve added dates & simple embellishments ahead of time so I only have to add my pictures, journaling and a few extra bits and bobs after the fact, making this a very manageable project.

I know the idea of documenting a story & picture each day might be daunting but it truly is a worthwhile activity. It’s one of the first things I go looking for when pulling out the holiday decor. I love to look through these albums and reminisce about the changes over the years.

Now, keep in mind that this doesn’t have to be all or nothing project either. This is a project you make all your own so you can choose to tell 12 stories in your album, or document from December 1st – 25th or go right through the holiday season & into New Year’s. I’ve done all of the above based on my mood and free time each year. You could also treat this like a project life album for December and simply use the divided page protectors, adding them to your PL album.

We are making it even easier to work on your DD album this year by offering our own exclusive December Daily kit filled with some amazing goodies including some bits and bobs from our own resident silhouette guru, Mary Ann. Having everything in one place, coordinated and ready to go makes this process a whole lot easier. The Paperie’s December Daily kit is a lovely collection of product, you might even choose to use your kit for your holiday layouts & cards!
