December Daily: Day 1

Happy December! Today marks the first day of the first 25 days of Christmas, as well as the first day for our enteries into our December Daily albums.

The boys opened their very first box on their advent calenders. This is their first year doing the calenders, last year they were too little to really be able to do it.

They loved the little treats inside-- of course, they wanted to open day 2, day 3, day 4, etc. But, I explained one little box per day! :) I really think this is gonna be a INCREDIBLE project. So far, I've really enjoyed it.

Can't wait for more days to come.

Quick Digital Layout

Took these pictures of my boys just before bedtime, decided to make a quick digital layout of them since they look so cute in them :) I need to get a few more lo's done for the the "family 09'" album.. this will be one of the ones going into that album.

Digital elements are various kits from Summer Driggs. I don't remember where I got the rusty star elements from?! (I've had them for quite a while!)

Project Life by Becky Higgins

Without any hesitation, I purchased the Project Life kit (by Becky Higgins) last week. I've really enjoyed the Project 365 (the kit similar to this that sold at the beginning of this year) It's really gotten me in the habit of photographing more. I love the look of the new kit. The colors, designs, etc. To find out more information about this, you can visit here.

The estimated time to receive the kit is sometime after New Years. :) It's quite a ways away, but truely worth the wait!

I highly recommend getting this if your new to scrapbooking, been scrapbooking for a long time or just because you want a easy, fun, and creative way to review your life in a years time.

December Daily Pages 1-10

As mentioned it my previous post, here are pages 1-10 of my December Daily album. Patterned papers are from the Christmas stack last year at Joann's, and also American Crafts.
I bought a 12x12 sheet of transparency at my local scrapbook store. Cut it in half, punched holes to fit album, added a snowflake rub-on and then a number sticker.

December Daily 2009

Today, I finished my December Daily album! I'm really excited about this project, it's the first time I've done it. Ali Edwards came up with this idea a few years ago and you can get more details on it along with pictures of her albums on her blog.

The idea of this whole project, is to document each day from December 1st until Christmas day. The 25 days of Christmas. During the month of November you put the album together so that it is ready come December 1st. Less work for you later--basic principle.

Here is the front of the album!
I used the Bo Bunny 9x9 bare naked binder. Covered it with patterened paper from last years Christmas Stack (purchased at Joann's) Added some ribbon, then the number and wording is from Creative Imaginations. All the numbers throughout the book were used from this company. Cardstock stickers, coordinating numbers, I figured it was perfect for this album!
More pics to come. All 25 pages :)

Peachy Cheap Package

Just received my package in the mail from Peachy Cheap. I ordered this kit a couple weeks ago. It's the KI Memories Mega Holiday Kit, it was offered on their site a while back. I just LOVE all of it. It was a great deal! Packaged perfectly! I highly recommend ordering from them.

Visit their site to see their daily deal. Peachy Cheap

(copied from their site) The kit includes over 2,159 pieces in Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentines Day themes. The kit contains almost 4lbs of paper alone (113 sheets). It includes double-sided patterned papers, double sided cardstock, cardstock alpha and accent stickers, domed epoxy alphas, designer paper clips, glitter brads, letter sequins, heart and star rhinestones, printed ribbon, and rub-ons.
