December Daily™ 2013 Kit Video


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.

    Oh, Ali this is beautiful. I only started to scrap book this year and as I am a federal employee I am currently on furlough. If the government re-opens I will buy your kit, otherwise I need to count pennies. So you do this every year? This is going to be wonderful. Here's hoping that I'm back at work sooner rather than the meantime I am home working on my first project life album. Thank you for putting together such wonderful items.

    Wow, this kit looks even more awesome than I expected seeing the full thing! I'm glad I preordered! I'm going to mostly stick to this kit, along with adding some other bits and pieces that I already have. I can't wait to see the goodies in real life! :)

    So awesome seeing all those goodies, especially since my kits always take a while to arrive here in Australia - your video will keep me going 'til then! Thanks for sharing. This is my fourth year doing DD along with you, but the first time I have taken the plunge and bought the kit - seeing this makes me so glad I did! Looking forward to seeing what you turn that box of goodies into...thanks for being willing to share your stories and creativity with us.

    Love the video and kit..but I choose not to buy a kit for $100 this year besides I still have lots of DecDaily stuff leftover from past kits.Watching your video will help me plan and buy a few more things from Michaels to add to my stash..SNAP simple stories has a 6x8 handbook album similar to this.I will definitely be buying your digital package..always look forward to that.
    By the way I totally loved your Hello story are so amazing.

    This will be my third attempt at December Daily, and my first with the kit.
    Looking at the contents l am SO excited about this project. Thanks so much for giving us a sneak peak.
    Christmas is going to be different this year, because of a number of reasons, and this kit and DD were the first things that have got me excited about holiday season.
    Thanks Ali.

    Thanks for sharing the kit, Ali! :) I've done DD's every year since you've started this tradition, but this will be my first done with the SC kit. So excited! I am loving what I'm seeing and cannot wait until my happy mail arrives! Thanks again!

    I am wondering where to purchase the 'hello forever' journaling stickers? I am really liking them! wondering if they are available outside of the kit?

    Hi Ali,

    It all looks very nice. I must say though, I'm a little bummed it's not one of your designed stamps that's included with the kit this year.
    Can't wait to start on this!

    I have done DD for many years now. And I am reall looking forward to getting this in the mail.
    Saw a comment earlier about making the numbers go longer than the 25th - that would be a great idea. My children spend christmas every other year with me or their dad and we change on december 28 - so to be able to have the numbers for the whole month would be great.
    Cant wait to start this year. Thank you so much for your inspiration Ali.

    Would really like to have just the album. I don't suppose that is available anywhere?

    Hi Ali-
    I was wondering if you were going to be designing new DD pages for us to print this year? If yes, when can we expect them? I have been doing DD for the past 5 years. It is one of my favorite things about the holidays.

    Hi Ali.
    I will be joining in on December Daily for the first time this year. I actually am ready to get organized and to capture memories before it's the middle of December! {yay}
    The kit looks like it includes "a few of my favorite things".
    I'm looking forward to following your process and being inspired by your talent. Thanks!

    Hi Ali. Looking forward to completing December Daily with you this year. This is the fourth year I am doing it with you and the second year that I purchased the kit. Last year I bit the bullet and ordered the kit instead of making my own because I calculated and realized that by the time I source and purchase all my supplies, I was paying close to or more than the price of the kit. Plus, it was tough finding small enough albums or making them on my own. I am finishing up my 2012 album now (got busy and sidetracked once Christmas was over) and will be ready to dive into DD this year. Thanks so much for this project and for continuing to inspire us to record these special memories. Blessings.

    Hi Ali~I'm a newbie to December Daily and super excited about it! My hope is that the DD will assist me in savor ing the moments...small or big! I do have one question-I want to use the silver glitter tape on the cover but am unsure what adhesive to use to assure it will stick well and last. Any advice would be much appreciated! {hope you're having a blast on your trip!}
