If you find yourself in communities of Project Life lovers then I am sure you have heard of December Daily.  For those not in the know, December Daily is the idea of doing a Project Life or scrapbook album for the month of December with a page dedicated to each day.  Because we have so many big events in December its great to just sit down and put it all into one album.  My take on December Daily focuses less of pages for each day, and more on the time from Thanksgiving to New Years.  For me, this will include our family thanksgiving, 2 birthdays, my anniversary, a bridal shower, holiday parties, a cruise, my nephew’s 1st Christmas, New Year’s, and my friend’s wedding on January 2nd.  Wow, just writing that all out is reminding me how busy this season really is!  Anyways,  I use 6x8in albums for my project life scrapbooks and I have purchased an additional 6×8 album for this project.  Heidi Swapp and Project Life have teamed up for a great line of products this year and I found my album at Joann’s from their holiday line.  Although I don’t plan to make a page for each day, I do want to use a number set to mark the day of the month the activities on the page are from. I picked up the MAMBI sticks Joy to the World set which includes  the numbers 1-25 for the christmas countdown.  So I won’t use all 25 numbers, but it will be a nice way to travel through December.  I will make a few cute date embellishments to denote the end of November and the few days of January that will be covered.  Of course, I have the entire month to work on this so who knows what changes I may make, but I am very excited to do my first Holiday Album. The embellishments on the left (Chipboard letters, christmas stickers and lights/candy canes are from the Target Dollar Spot, and the washi tape is just from my personal collection.  The silver letter stickers and the mambi small embellishments were also purchased earlier this year.




Instead of purchasing Project Life or other branded cards for my album I decided to just cut down scrapbook pages to fit my pockets.  Here are some that I grabbed on sale.  My Joann’s had a great selection of Christmas open stock paper as well as super cute embellishments and accessories.  I hadn’t been in there in awhile and didn’t realize how great their scrapbook section was.  I am looking forward to getting back over there.


Are you doing a December Daily album?  What album and supplies are you using?  Do you have a better idea?  Share in the comments!
