I am very excited to be completing a December Daily album this year! I first found out about December Daily on the website of Ali Edwards, the originator. Last year I tried to do one; I even made my album and everything, but I lacked the discipline to take enough photos to finish it.
This year, I have joined the Studio Calico class 25 Days led by Maggie Holmes. I am really excited because I am already on a creative high with my Big Picture Classes Process class led by Catherine Davis.
So I am READY to go with this year's December Daily. Maggie Holmes will be using the SC December Daily kit by Ali Edwards, however it was a little out of my price range so I opted to buy my own album and use supplies from my stash...of which I have plenty.
In addition, the SC class came with a bonus kit that I was blessed enough to have signed up for the class in time to receive one (they only had a limited supply of kits). That means I will also have these supplies plus my stash of Christmas supplies that I didn't use last year. I would like to share my bonus kit and all the goodies that came in it!!
In my next few posts I will show my inspiration board for December and also (once I receive my album in the mail) my beginning stages for trying to plan out my December Daily 2013 album!
This my first SC class and the kit came so cutely packaged, with all of the kit items in this awesome little cloth sack.
Of course I had an awesome time laying everything out. I could hardly wait to get home from work to examine my package!
This is an overview of what everything looked like straight out of the bag.
The kit came with nine 3x4 inch Project Life cards, I only showed the front, but each had a back as well with space for journaling. The ninth card was a blank white card that I did not show here.
Also, I got this extra sweet "DECEMBER" wood veneer (see it there in the middle). I'm already thinking of ways I'm going to treat and alter it for my album. :)
There are also 4x6 double-sided cards and green alpha stickers as well.
I cannot believe that I now have glitter tape, washi tape, and striped ribbon!
American Crafts ribbon
There is a Marcy Penner Hello Forever "2013" badge here. Her badges are always awesome and I have had them in previous SC kits. Check out here website here.
Lastly, but definitely not least, is a wonderful stamp set!
And that ladies and gentlemen is my Bonus Kit. Which I love!!
Next I will be posting a few different things, all getting ready for our Christmas season including my December bulletin board, my choices for my December Daily album, and some other supplies I purchased for my album.
