December Daily® 2016 | Order Selection Period Now Open

Ordering for  December Daily® 2016 has officially started. 

EDITED | As many of you experienced this morning we had a major site crash at the launch time due to a crazy amount of people (love you guys and your enthusiasm) that far exceeded our previous numbers attempting to access the site at the same time. At this time, 10am PDT, things seem to be working smoother. I apologize for the inconvenience and frustration and want to profusely thank you for your patience as it got sorted out and our server capacity was increased dramatically. If, during that process, you ended up with multiples of products that you didn't intend to order please start a conversation with my Customer Service team and they will be happy to assist you in sorting out your order. 

To me this December Daily® Order Selection Period has started to become a bit of a marker for the transition from summer to fall (two of the very best seasons in my opinion). My kids all go back to school next week which will be interesting and fun and exciting with our new blended family situation. And Simon is starting high school. For real. Activities are on the calendar and a new normal will slowly begin to take place. 

With that in mind, the holidays will be upon us in the blink of an eye and my goal is to help you start thinking (even from a distance) about how you want to document your December this year. I'll be using a 6x8 album and the main kit for sure with probably a few other things added in along the way (I'm loving the stamp sets this year especially). You don't have to skip Halloween and Thanksgiving and jump right into bringing out your tree and your decor, but I think you know what I mean. 

This Order Selection Period will run from now until the end of September and then we will package up your box and ship it to you in October. If you are signed up for the December Daily® email list you'll receive reminders and updates about shipping along the way. You can sign up for the specific December Daily® newsletter at the bottom of this page. We do not anticipate any shipping delays this year. 

As you'll see below I've included video walkthroughs of the main kit, the coordinating products, and a video sharing some of my favorites from the mini kits for 2016. 

I'm super excited to bring you this selection of December Daily® products this year and am hopeful you'll find something to make documenting your stories in December that much easier and more fun. 

If you have any questions or issues with the order selection process please start a conversation with our Customer Service team.  

Here's a run down (review in case you missed this post) of how it works with images of the products below:

HOW ORDERING WORKS

  1. Add products to your December Daily® box.
  2. Click "Order Box" to start the checkout process. 
  3. Review your order and click "Confirm Selection" At that time your credit card will be charged for the items you added to your box. 
  4. Throughout the month of September you can add more products to your December Daily® box (your card will be charged each time you click "Confirm Selection"). For example if on 9/1 you select my kit + Jasmine's kit, you will be charged for those two kits at that time. If you return on 9/10 and add an album and a stamp set to your box you will be charged for those items at that time. Once shipping begins in October, we'll pack everything up and send it to you. 
  5. The December Daily® box process includes a "Your Shipping" section which will allow you to see how much your current shipping charges are at any time. 
  6. Shipping charges, if they apply to your order, will be charged upon shipment. 

Shipping rates for all items are as follows:

  • Mini Kits: $2 US / $3 CAN / $4 Int'l per kit
  • Main Kit: FREE US / $4 CAN / $7 Int'l per kit
  • Pre-Order Shop Items (dies, stamps, and tab stickers): Free shipping to everyone
  • Albums: $3 US / $4 CAN / $7 Int'l per album

MAIN KIT 2016 / $49.99

Here's a look at my December Daily® kit for 2016

You can see additional images by clicking on the main kit image on the  December Daily® Order Selection page.

When you purchase my main  December Daily® kit during the order selection period (9/1/16- 9/30/16), you will receive a free set of 6x8 hole punched transparencies (while supplies last).

    I will sound like the parent that I am, but no matter how stressful this morning was with the "crash" take care of yourself! Take away the good that obviously everyone loves you and your products and take a deep breath and go take a long nap. PE is nothing to take lightly, as you already know. Design,Inc. and others of your "family of friends" will obviously take care of everything. You take care of yourself! Nap time!

    Omg! Thank you so much for having the cards and papers blank/grid on the back!! The kit looks fantastic!! This is my 6th year doing December Daily and I LOVE it! I purchased the main kit and two mini kits without even looking at the contents, and I know I will be 100% satisfied. :D

    As always, so much thought and talent into another great project. I think this might be my favorite so far. Thank you for all you do to encourage us to document our lives. You and yours are such an inspiration. So wonderful to see you and everyone close to you with such happy faces--no one deserves it more.

    Oh, today is here at last....I bought your kit before even having a good look at it. Just feeling sorry for the girls in Australia that got up at 1am, as it took me an hour to get into the site...Just a suggestion for next year perhaps: could we get the video overview a day or so before the kit goes live for purchase? Would make for a more satisfying experience for many I'm sure. All the best for more resting Ali!

    I've been eagerly anticipating today and I guess everyone else was too. Quick question, are the cards in the main kit and the mini kit double sided or single sided? Maybe I missed it in a video.

      Jamie, in the main kit they are blank. In the minis it depends on which kit - some are blank and some are decorated. It's funny because one of the minis I don't like most of the cards but I love the backs of them as they are simpler.

    Just checking I may have miss something but are the plastic protector pages part of the main kit like last year or do we have to purchase those separately
    Thankyou

    Hi Ali would the paint bundle and the screens restock? when I was buying it earlier there was something wrong with my cart it wasn't adding properly, then when it did add it got sold out.

      I will absolutely be sharing them here just like I have in all the past years ;). The workshop is more about the overall process vs. any specific products.

    Ali you out done yourself. I missed out of the screen which is a bummer. I hope you bring some back this year if not definitely next year. I hope with all the hiccups with the internet you don't over do it. Your health is too important. I can't wait till Oct when it arrives.

    Hi there - Love love all the releases. I was just wondering if the albums have that sticker on them this year like they did last year? I seem to remember you were annoyed by it as well and said it wasn't meant to be there so i'm guessing they won't. Thanks x

    PS. The kits are really beautiful too!

      Hi - those albums will not be restocked due to the production timeline it takes to have them manufactured.

      Bummer, I had had it in my cart but ran into a snag and then when I came back they were sold out. Thank you so much for responding! Have a great weekend!

    Ali, I had a look at all the videos, and so love the products! Congratulations on a fantastic kit. Your considerateness shines through even in how you design your products. I'm so happy that you included stars and numbers in the main kit this year, will definitely use them. I was a little disappointed that the journal cards contained word art that I already have in digital format (at least I think so), if I must be honest, but LOVE LOOVE everything else.

      Thanks Lize :). Not everyone uses/has access to digital products which is why we used some of those on actual printed cards this year.

    Love the added photos of the back sides of the journaling cards on the mini kits. Is it possible to add similar photos of the front sides of the cards, since from the main photo you really can only see the top card?

    1. AliEdwards says…
      09/02/2016

      Let me see if we can make that happen. We will have unboxing videos available next week where you'll be able to see both sides.

    2. lasteve1 says…
      09/03/2016

      Thanks Ali! I've already picked up the main kit, but I'm on the fence about adding a mini kit as well. This would really help.

    This year and last, there was one particular standout album (the ones with the handwriting on the cover) which was far more lovely than the others, and which sells out immediately, leaving underwhelming choices available on the first ordering day. It would be awesome if there were more of the obvious album-of-choice stocked!

      09/02/2016

      Hi Susan - "far more lovely" is in the eye of the beholder :). We ordered more of that album than last year and, even though it was a repeat design from a previous year, it still ended up being the one to sell out first. I appreciate your feedback and we will be reviewing how things went this year in preparation for next year.

      If only you had a crystal ball.....You can never predict what is going to be the fastest or slowest seller.That's real life business.

      The tone on tone grey Merry album is particularly standout this year.

    4. Wmreale says…
      09/06/2016

      Far more lovely is DEFINITELY in the eye of the beholder as I'm head over heels for the red words album and the grey is actually my LEAST favorite (it's still beautiful but the grey doesn't do anything for me with such a bright kit). The red words match my Week in the Life album from a recent year, and if I remember correctly that album was a HUGE hit that year and I was thrilled to actually get it. Now for Christmas it's the only album left standing. I'm sure there's no way to know what the big seller will be until the day for ordering actually comes.

    Really love your main kit Ali and I had a hard time choosing the album I want because I loved them all but went with the red text album. Maybe for future kits you would consider an embellishments only kit, a paper pack (6x8) and I would love a bigger spine album (my albums are very full).
