I’m ready. Supplies are gathered. Most of them are things left over from last year’s project: doillies, kraft, glitter and shimmery papers. They still appeal to me so why not put them to work again?
I’m using this 6×8 binder. I like this size – not too big (I have storage issues) but big enough to hold things like holiday cards.
Neutral color palette. Woodgrain, whites, shimmer and glitter.
I’m also using the kit in my shop, using the layered templates to put together my photo pages and printing the patterned papers as I go along.
The complete supplies list for my 2012 December Daily Album.
1. glue pen (martha stewart) 2. mist sprays (mister huey calico white and dark calico) 3. bronze glitter (martha stewart) 4. papers from december you have my fave (paislee press) 5. press cards no. 18 (paislee press) 6. 6×8 Simple Stories Binder 7. stardream quartz paper (paper source) 8.

I have a pretty good idea of the things I want to include in this year’s album.
Handwritten Dear Santa Letters.
Our Holiday Card.
And lastly, I made a list of holiday related things I want to photograph in December.
I’m setting a simple goal to take a photo a day. That’s it. No expectations to print out photos or assemble pages or even to edit photos as I go. If I find extra time to work on the actual album pages throughout the month, I will. But I’m fine with not tackling the pages until after the holidays. Last year I finished my album in April. Later is better than never.
What about you? Are you embarking on the December Daily journey?
