Planning December Daily®


Here we are again at this wonderful time of year when I get to make my most favourite album and document the magic of December.

As I have in previous years, I’ve been pondering my inspirational pins, leafing through past albums and looking at the supplies list in Ali’s kit for a hint on the trends this year.

I have been a bit stumped for a cover design. I so easily fall back on the same old same old because I like what I like and nothing has been jumping out at me. So even though I’ve done it before I think I’ll go back to kraft coloured card stock and white. I just can’t help it.


I could tell you right now that some of the stories will be about the advent gifts, the eggnog latte, the wrapping, the putting up the tree and the twinkle lights. I do worry about repetition but mostly I know that tradition is one of the beauties of this project. And I know that without a doubt there will be something new.

Here is a little list of things I want to remember to use/incorporate this year –

  • see through pockets filled with glitter and sequins
  • teeny banners along the tops of pages
  • type on photos before printing (especially white type)
  • full page photos
  • use the idea prompts I’ve ‘pinned’ to help capture the magic
  • have fun!

And just look at that amazing collection of albums. When I first embarked on this project I could not have imagined the joy I have had from doing it December since or the wonderful gift those albums give each time I pick the up.


If you are on the fence about joining in, don’t be. Jump with both feet and in a couple of years you’ll have a mantle full of goodness too.

  • Your December Daily albums have been beautiful & a source of inspiration. I spent the afternoon sorting through all my Christmas papers, stickers & assorted accessories, I won’t be buying the kit! I am also getting very excited to start on this project. My Christmastide season starts on Sunday November 23rd – Stir Up Sunday with the baking of the Christmas cake & pudding. Oh what fun ahead of us. With all the smaller albums & pocket pages available, it has never been easier to create.

  • I now follow you every day, I found you thru your posts on Ali’s December daily site. Love your dog and love of color purple. Can’t wait to start this year and see what you come up with.
