I’m super excited about December Daily this year and have been very busy prepping for it, it’s possible I have over prepared.
I have been sharing every step of my process on my YouTube Channel, and you can check them all out here – December Daily Playlist.
You can also follow me on Instagram I share a ton of photos about my process there.
As today is December 1st and I would love to share everyday here on this blog I thought it would be good to give you a quick recap of what I have been doing prior to the 1st.
Size and Album: I take a lot of photos and like to include a lot of photos, plus I like products and I like to include products so I knew I needed a large album then the standard 6×8. I have been working with 8×11 recently and really like that size so I decide to make my December Daily album 8×11. I had to make my own album and I made my own divided page protectors.
It was a lot of work but I think it is going to be fun to work in this size. You can check out more about my process in my Album and Page Protectors video, here.
Title Page: It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with my title page and I LOVE the way it turned out. Ali always includes the reason why and I liked that idea but thought it needed more, so I made a who, what, where, when and why page.
You can check out my video explaining more about title page, here.
Foundation Pages: After I finished my title page I spent about 4 hours creating my foundation pages. View a full foundation page walk through and learn more about my process, here.
After I finished all my foundation pages my album was already looking very full and that’s fine with me. I did a lot in my foundation so that my days can come together really quickly.
November 26th: I had planned to not start documenting until December 1st but we put our tree up on the day after Thanksgiving and I wanted to include that.
So there you go, you are caught up on everything that has happened before December 1st and I’m ready to start sharing, hopefully everyday.
