New Digital Product Releases | 10.22.11

One new product from me at Designer Digitals this weekend: the 2011 December Daily overlay package.

This year, in addition to the 31 PNG files, I've included both a black and a red PDF file for easy printing (includes crop marks). I'm using the red version. This package is specific to the days and dates of 2011. The page size is 6 inches x 8.5 inches - sized to fit inside the page protectors included with the album kit available through Studio Calico on October 27th (subscribers) and October 28th (non-subscribers).

I'll be showing my foundation pages later this week.

If you'd like more information on how I worked with these last year check out this post which includes a video tutorial and steps for working with these printables in both Elements and Word.


I also wanted to let you know that while I was in Italy some additional new products were added to my collection at Designer Digitals. These include the first half of the digital products used in my Yesterday & Today class (this was a 12-week class offered at Big Picture Classes). I'll be adding the second half of the series soon as well as offering a PDF/book of the actual content from the class. The video presentations and tutorials will be available through Big Picture around the same time as the PDF/book is ready. More info on all that as I get closer to launching the PDF/book.

You can see all the products in my Yesterday & Today collection here.

    I remember this picture from last year Ali and Anna not sitting on Santa's lap. This picture is adorable and priceless. Looking forward to seeing your foundation this week. I've been looking at last year's everyday for the past 5 days, love it!!

    Looking forward to playing along again this year. I find that DD helps me stay focused on the really important things rather than allowing chaos and stress to fill thoughts and memories. Also, these are some of our favorite scrapbooks. Thanks for the inspiration, Ali. And the digital products. I'm definitely a fan of those!

    As soon as I read that you included black and red png files - I said "Yesss!" Every year I struggle to try to "recolor" these things in photoshop and it never looks right - and just takes too much time. So now I can use "right out of the box"

    So excited about doing this again this year! I actually have almost everything bought and ready to go. I was just waiting on the Designer Digitals things from you. Yay! Can't wait to see what you are doing this year. :)

    This is my first year doing DD and I am so excited. However, $80 is a little pricey for the album kit this year. Money is tight since I am now a SAHM. ANyone have any suggestions where I can find an album and sheet protectors that size?

    I can barely contain my excitement for this project. This is my first year and I am so looking forward to capturing the month of December. Can't wait to see your foundation pages. So inspiring! Love seeing everyone's work...I keep pouring over last year's flickr site. Yeah!!!

    Hi Ali,
    I was wondering if the binder is going to be offered by itself or just as part of the kit? Looking forward to DD!!

    Hey Ali! I'm wondering how you print the overlays on the bazzil paper. Do you have a laser printer you're using for this or do you not worry about moisture or am I doing something wrong? I could print them on different paper, but I just love the texture! Thanks!

    Ali, I just purchased the overlays and can't wait. I never seem to have my album ready before December so I never finish it till months later. I will be ready this year! I was wondering what paper do you print the overlays on? Smooth or textured? white or off-White? The true white almost seems too white.

    Lol....last year I really fell off the wagon and never finished it! This year I plan on having it ready before December....maybe that will help! And I really wanted to do it last was the last before all my kids have left the house! My oldest daughter has been gone awhile but daughter # 2 got married and # 3 son graduated and is at college! Empty now what to take photos of? Any other empty nesters doing this?

    I was wondering if there was a company you can upload your finished overlay pages to print. My printer isn't the best so. Trying to decide to just print the template pages & attach the photo's or do it all digitally and find somewhere to print them.

    Any advice/tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    hi Ali, I have all the overlays from last year. is it possible for me to edit them myself to use this year again? I have CS3 and it does not open the png files?

    Hi Ali, I'm hoping to join in with December Daily this year. I have a couple of 5x7 photo albums and would like to use one for this project. I was wondering whether you have any December Daily overlays that would work with this size?

    Hi Ali, sorry to bother you but I have bought the Overlays and really struggling as I have 12x12 card stock and hoping to get 2 6x8 pages per a sheet.

    I just can't figure out how to print it on to the card, I can cut my card to 6x8 ready but it's working out what settings to set so I have the perfect page if that makes sense.

    Last year I ended up hand drawing each of the boxes on to the page which was rather time consuming as I couldn't figure it out lol.

    thank you in advance from Tracey :)

    Hi Ali,
    Yay! December Daily time! I love the clean look of the page overlays from last year. I again purchased for this year. But I would like this year's to be 6 x 8 inches like last years. Is there a way to somehow do that? I have Photoshop on the mac.
    Thank you!

    Does anyone know, can the 6 x 8.5 templates be resized in Photoshop Elements to fit a different page size? I am doing an 8.5 x 11 sheet this year, but would really like to use ALi's templates. Any ideas?

    Hi Ali, Just downloaded the overlays and started resizing and printing so i can do two to a 8.5x11 sheet. i was wondering if you were going to re-do the title page for 2011? i really loved having our family picture on the front page. i also want to thank you for re-using the templates from last year. i love the uniformity! so great!

    Hi Ali,
    I am a little late getting finalised with DD being my first time- just one question- I have printed the red pdf daily pages and wondering- do I trim all sides where the crop lines are or is it best to leave the left side to hole punch?! I have made a wooden cover that has ample side space for the rings.

    Another late starter here....don't know where the time went! lol Are there kits still available? I would really love to use an album!
