Similar to past years when a kit has been available, I'll be using pieces of the kit in addition to supplementing with products I have here at home and creating printable/digital products available through Designer Digitals. You do not need to have the kit to participate in December Daily™. There have been requests in years past for a kit option so I'm excited to be partnering with Studio Calico to fill that need for those who are interested in purchasing a group of supplies from one retailer.
The thing I'm most excited about this year is that the Studio Calico kit will include an album. (It's actually a jumping up and down kind of excitement.)
Many of you who played along last year (or in past years) have known the struggle of finding/making an album to fit all the pages we create over the 25 days (and even more than 25 for some of you). American Crafts has created an exclusive chipboard binder album that is 3 inches thick - perfect for holding all the good stuff that goes into this album.
The binder measures 9 inches wide x 9.5 inches tall and has a 3-inch spine. Inside the album you'll find 25 page protectors that hold 8.5 x 6 inch pages. In the image above you can see the size of my 2010 album placed inside this new ring binder album.
I'm super excited to see how people decided to decorate this album. So many possibilities on the outside, the inside, and in how you choose to work with (or without) the page protectors.
I'll be updating the December Daily™ printable pages to fit these page protectors and changing the dates for 2011. My hope is to have those available through Designer Digitals either this weekend or next.
Kits will go on sale to Studio Calico subscribers on October 27th at 12:00pm EST and to non-subscribers on October 28th at 12:00am EST.
My hope is to get all my foundation pages completed this week and be ready to share with you next week. Getting all the foundation pages done in advance has always been a big part of enjoying this project during December.
