December Daily® 2017 | Workshop Details & Updates

Today I want to give you a heads up about the two December Daily® workshops I'll be offering this year. Check out the details below for when registration opens. 

As always I'll be sharing my foundation pages and my completed pages here on my blog for the actual stories I'll be telling this year. I'll begin sharing my foundation pages (my starting point for this project) in late October. 

Questions? Let me know in the comments!

DECEMBER DAILY® PRODUCT PLAY

This year I'm offering a brand new 3-week workshop experience that will begin on November 1. In this online class we'll be taking a closer look at playing with three specific shapes in December Daily® documentation: hearts, stars, and circles. These are three of my favorite shapes and there are so many different ways you can creatively play with these kinds of products in your project to compliment your stories. We'll also be talking about the specific design concepts that go into working with these shapes which will be useful for you in any projects going forward (repetition, contrast, focal points, etc). I'll be using products from this year's December Daily® collection (including some digital products) but the products are not required. As always I'll be coming at this with storytelling and simple design at the forefront.

COST: $20.00
REGISTRATION: Opens in mid-October. First delivery of class content will be on Wednesday, November 1. 
CONTRIBUTORS: Pam Baldwin, Ingunn Markiewicz, Brandi Kincaid, Laura Wonsik, Jen Schow, and Kelly Ishmael.
INCLUDES: Digital package

STORYTELLING WITH DECEMBER DAILY®

Storytelling With December Daily® is definitely the class to take if you are really looking for a deep-dive into getting to the heart of the matter with this project. If you haven't taken this workshop I highly recommend it as a way to really think through how you might want to approach this project and the stories that are most important to you. I put my whole heart and experience into putting this workshop together that first ran in 2015 and I'm happy to bring it back again as a self-paced workshop (same content as the previous versions of this workshop). 

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

  • Past Perspective: what's worked and not worked for me in past December Daily® projects
  • Specific story ideas for seasonal storytelling that can be incorporated into your own album
  • Photo ideas (because photos are often story sparks)
  • Favorite techniques for including stories in my December Daily® albums (including digital, interactive, etc)
  • Encouragement and inspiration for creating your own personal process that is workable for you

COST: $15.00
REGISTRATION: Opens on November 1. This class will be offered as a self-paced experience which means when you purchase the class all the content will be immediately available to you.
INCLUDES: Digital package that includes PNG and cut files
NOTES:

  • No alumni discount this year.
  • In past years we've included a physical stamp set - we will not be doing that this year which is why the price has been reduced. 
  • I will be doing a walk-through of my 2016 album on my blog and YouTube this year. Albums included in the video walk-throughs in this workshop include all my albums through 2015. 

I'm so looking forward to seeing you guys in these classrooms this year! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my passion with you.

    So excited about the product play class as I have loved the Storytelling class taken before! It's like an extra special treat to prepare for December Daily. Also, thank you so much for making the classes so affordable. Right before the holidays money always gets tight and now I don't have to feel guilty for taking the money to invest in myself!

    Thank you for making the class prices so affordable. Working with a tight budget can be quite tough, and it's really hard to stop purchasing your products.They are so inspirational, beautiful and yet so simple. I love using them to document my son's life. Any chance you'd be promoting a Halloween theme?

      Hi mara218 - we don't have any Halloween products but we will have some Fall/Autumn products coming out next month.

    Ali, I signed up for the Story telling with DD last year. Will I still have the ability to use the class?

      Yes. Once you are in the Ali mafia, you are in for good. I signed up last year too, and I can't fathom a class being revoked.

      You still have the ability to view it now :). It stays in your account and you have access to it indefinitely (or as long as my site is up and running).

    Is it November yet? Just can't wait. And both prices are really generous.

    Does December Daily typically end with Christmas or does it go thru the entire month?

      I end with Christmas Day but some people go through the end of the month or even into January. It's totally up to you and the stories you want to tell.

    Ali I have a question could you tell me in the first picture shown there are some hearts with words on them and I can't seem to find them anywhere could you tell me where I might find them located?
    Looking forward to the classes!

    Looking forward to the "Product Play". Your classes never disappoint, I always learn so much. I'm also interested in seeing what your contributors share with us as well.

    I can't wait for both classes. Will the Product Play class also be self paced?

      All of my classes are technically self-paced - meaning you access the information when you want. The difference with this one - as it's being run for the first time - is that the content will be released once per week vs. having everything available right when it goes live.

    I am working on making my craft room space more taylored to the way "I" create. Just got done sorting products it to hearts, stars and circles last month! How ironic! Thanks for inspiring me to think differently than I could've ever imagined!

    Are the digits packages that will be included in the product play and story telling classes the same? In other word if I participate in both classes, will I get the same digital package? Thanks!

      No. The digital package for the new class (Product Play) will be new.

    If I didn't buy the Main Kit would this class still be relevant?

      Yep - I'm using a variety of products from our release. It will be more about the overall shapes and design ideas for playing with those shapes before telling your stories.
