December Daily™ 2013 Kit Video

602957_10151890044043360_1087756935_n

Today I'm sharing a video overview of the contents of the December Daily™ kit from Studio Calico.

I'm super excited to get going on this project - always one of my most favorite each year! I plan to put my album together later this month and will share my process as I go.

VIDEO DISCLAIMER | If you've ordered this kit and prefer to be surprised when you open the kit box don't watch the video below!

EDITED TO ADD: The blue tape I show in this video was mistakenly added to my kit - it is not actually included with the December Daily™ kit. The kit does include silver glitter ribbon (along with gold). Also included in this kit is a set of enamel dots that were left out of my box before shipping. I apologize for any confusion that might have caused.

If you want more information on creating a December Daily™ album or would like to see examples from past year's check out my December Daily™ page.

      I've lived in Shanghai, China for almost 4 years, and am so excited you get to visit this part of the world! You will LOVE it! I almost want to go scout out Yu Gardens the day you go just to meet you. ;-) Have a great time!!

      The China kit is for people who are going on the Scrapmap trip to China in November. http://www.scrapmap.com/tours/china_1113.html

      Those should ship out next week Catherine :).

      Thanks for answering. I had forgotten about that. How exciting! My daughter is from Hubei province. Will you be going anywhere near there? We plan to do a heritage trip at some point.

    Thanks so much for doing this! This is my absolute favorite project to do all year long. All my DD albums (I've been doing this along with you since 2006) sit in a basket in our living room all year long. My kids just love looking through them at sporadic times during the year :) I've tried putting them away and only putting them out during the holidays but my kids protest every time - LOL. I'm super excited for the DD kit and can't wait to get started!

    This video was so fun to watch! I can't wait to get my kit! I enjoyed using your kit from last year so much too. The box the kit comes in is really awesome to keep everything for the kit together! Thank you SO much for doing this video!

      Studio Calico will offer a class this year. I'll just be sharing on my blog like I have in past years.

    Ali,
    Is the green light, not a "Christmas" green? Is there blue too?

    Can't wait!!!! Thanks for sharing!

      Which part are you talking about? There is definitely a lighter green and a lighter blue included.

    This will be my 4th attempt to do Dec Daily. I ordered the kit this year so I hope I follow through and complete it.

    I have always enjoyed your DDs, I hope I have one completed this year!

    Big fan of DDs and you.

    I can't wait to see what you do with the kit this year. How much outside product do you think you will be using in addition to the kit?

      I'm wondering this too...I've been afraid to try this project in the past (figuring I wouldn't keep up with it and actually finish it) but if I knew that the whole thing could be done with JUST what's in the kit that would be enticing...

    2. Ali says…
      10/03/2013

      Probably not much - I will be creating overlays and other digital elements that can be printed and added to photos or printed as printables just like in the past. So most likely the other things I'll use are some white cardstock. Plus basics like ink and pens and embossing powder. I'll also probably add in a few of my Technique Tuesday stamps (or I might use those in Project Life/on other projects).

    So excited for DD this year! And the kit is beautiful! I know you said you'd be showing us your base pages, but will you do some videos of how you put them together? I love watching your process on how your pages come together. Thanks!

    I think I love the packaging as much as the kit itself. Can't wait for mine to arrive.

    Love that kit. WOW. Gorgeous. Since you do more of a daily life for your December Daily vs. just focused on Christmas, do you still do your project life album? Do they overlap, do you try and tell different stories in each or just whatever works?

    Looking forward to seeing what you put together!

      10/03/2013

      Yes - I still do both. There's always more than one story each day. I'm planning a post where I show both of mine from last year as a comparison. You can see both already in my archives: http://aliedwards.com/december-daily and http://aliedwards.com/projects/365-project-life

    AWE.. I love it, Cant wait! Thank you so much for sharing! I love that they are using the Project Life kit magnetic boxes to store it in. Makes it easier to put away when you aren't working on it.

    Ali, I know there is a digital stamp set, but will you be doing the date overlays like last year?

      Yes! Coming later this month most likely.

    Wow beautiful kit! I love the album and the paper pack. This is the first year I will be doing December Daily...so excited! I was planning to buy the kit, but the $100 price tag took me by surprise. I think next year I am just going to set aside $10 a month for the kit. Seems easier to handle when you do a little planning. :) Thanks! Can't wait to follow you along and see what you do.
