Hi everyone this is Sabrina! I had the amazing opportunity to be on the December Daily Creative Team and I worked in the 6x8 green album. I stuffed that album and will definitely need 2 albums next year!
This album was my 11th year doing this project and I continue to enjoy the process of making this album, playing with the products, telling the stories and capturing this magical month. For me, I have learned that spending some time in November looking at your products, playing with them and making prep pages is a vital tool in completing the album. Having between 5 and 10 prep pages really comes in handy for the days where life is busy, I'm short on time or not feeling creative. I also make a list of stories that I like to capture and document during December which helps me to remember all the stories I enjoy scrapbooking in December.
For my album this year I enjoyed a lot of stamping with all the different stamp sets like the botanicals, stars and alphabet stamp sets. I even used the stamp sets to create a custom December themed bookshelf! I also a stamped border with the stamps to document a fun crafty get together and made a list of stamped words to describe movie nights. I found many uses for the stamps and loved all the stories I told using December Daily stamps.
Another tip I would like to share is just remember this is a marathon and not a sprint. At the end of the day delete out the photos you don't need and edit them so they are ready to be printed. Once you have your photos pick a few supplies to build your page and have fun! Try your best to not get overwhelmed with your supplies and maybe pick 1 new product to play with and try another on the next story. Most importantly, remember these are your and your family's stories and they are unique. Your stories are special and shouldn't be compared to anyone else's. Just by documenting your December stories you are making a beautiful and priceless album.
Here are some photos of my December Daily album and I also have a full walk thru video on my Youtube channel if you want to check that out. I appreciate everyone in the community cheering me on my Youtube channel and on my Instagram @mrsscrapandplan. I just treasure this project and look forward to it every year.
Thank you again for taking a look at my project and I hope my tips help you with your documenting your December. Can't wait till next year!
