I am hereby dubbing my December Daily mini-album Project #8 in my quest to do 12 new-to-me projects in 2012.
Yes, I’ve done plenty of mini-albums in the past. Yes, I did December Daily last year.
But this time is different…this time I used a kit!
I’m just splitting hairs, I know, but it’s getting down to the wire, and I’m counting this because it’s something I haven’t done before. I tried once, but I hated the kit with a fire-y passion and ended up recycling what I could (as in, actually putting it into the recycling bin) and tossing the rest of it. So this time is different and it counts.
I purchased the Simple Holiday kit from Simple Scrapper
. It isn’t one of those kits that comes in an overlarge box and ends being almost too much product…and it isn’t quite a ‘bare bones’ kit that you get as a take-and-make…it’s just right
Here are my foundation pages:
This kit was great! Jennifer of Simple Scrapper
selected fantastic products, pre-punched the pages, and put them all in a semi-random order, how awesome is that? The slowest part of my mini-album process is selecting the papers and I usually make them all different sizes, but this year I’m going to stick with all 6×6 pages.
I added the kraft covers using a thin chipboard, two of the papers in the stack are from last year’s selection (I wanted to have a tie between the two), the kraft tags, the silver and black thickers are from my own stash, the doillies and black polka dot tape are from the little kit one -neutrals

Just like last year, I’ll take 1 Instax Mini photo a day through Christmas. The photos may not have anything to do with the holidays, it may just end up being a photo of my cubicle or a photo of the sky outside…but it will be done. Because I’m not much of a journaler, I’m going to need some help in that department, so I’m going to try and follow along with Annette Haring of This & That
Annette is going a 30 Days of Lists-style approach to her December Daily, and I think the prompts rock! She even created simple printables
in case you want to add them to your foundation pages.
Are you doing December Daily?
Do you like to use kits rather than collect your supplies on your own?
This is the eighth project in my quest to complete twelve new-to-me projects this year. My goal is to try different ways to be creative that are not for profit but will benefit me in some way. 12 Projects. 1 Year.
Project 1: Paint Chip Display
