December Daily, Trinity Stamps

December Album with Trinity Stamps

YouTube 12-8

Today I’m on the Trinity Stamps YouTube Channel with day 1 of an annual album I do each December.  The premise of this is to journal & document each day of the Christmas season (Dec 1 until the the 25th).  I have done this project for the last 7 years and I love it.  I’m not entirely sure whose idea this originally belonged to, but 2 creative ladies lead this project in their own way each year.  Ali Edwards does a December Daily and Shimelle Laine does a Journal Your Christmas.

Having done an album for the last 7 years, I have my own way that I tend to make my album.  I am more laid back about documenting each day, often we are so busy that I will just put some Christmas cards from beloved family members in a certain day if there is really nothing Christmas-sy to document.  I also don’t journal as much, and usually let the photos do the “talking” and just a few thoughts written down.

Today I’m showing Day 1 of the album during which my daughter received her Funko Harry Potter Advent Calendar- we were both so excited to get this calendar, so I wanted to document it on Day 1 with the lovely Trinity Stamps stamp set Magical Wizards.  The video shows how I set up my days and how I prepared day 1 of December.

December Daily

Prepping for December Daily 2018


I usually decide at the beginning of October what products I’m going to buy to use in my December Daily.  For anyone not familiar with December Daily, this is a tradition in the scrapbooking community of documenting each day in December leading up to Christmas in a scrapbook album, traveler’s notebook or any kind of journal.  This is hands down my favorite project of the year and I’ve enjoyed documenting our days leading up to Christmas!

This year I’ve decided to largely use the Merry Days Collection from Crate Paper.  Its comforting color palette and illustrations remind me simultaneously of vintage Christmas images (which I collect on Pinterest) and my favorite stationery brand- Rifle Paper.  I’ve made a video of the collection for those that are still waiting to receive their orders so that the color palette and contents can be readily seen.

Do you like the Merry Days Collection?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!  Thanks for stopping by!
