December Daily® 2014 | Kit Updates

I'm interrupting my Week In The Life™ posting to share some updates on the 2014 December Daily® kit

There are now real-live photos of the products available the kit on the pre-order page and I'm getting super excited to play with these fun holiday products. 

In addition I've got a couple cool announcements: 

1. While supplies last, all pre-orders will include double the original amount of papers. Rather than 20 double-sided papers, you'll get 40 double-sided papers which will allow you to use all the designs. 

2. All international orders will be upgraded to expedited shipping, free of charge. That's pretty awesome. If you are international customer who already paid for expedited shipping we will refund you. Please note that you will still pay the $8 basic international shipping fee but we'll cover the cost to upgrade it to the expedited shipping option ($30). Shipping is free to US addresses.    

3. The 6x8 albums are cloth covered in your choice of red or cream - swatches of those two options should be up on the sale page sometime today (it's in progress). I'll be using the red album this year. If you've already pre-ordered and decided you'd like to change to a different color you can start a conversation with Customer Service and they will take care of you!

Take a look at the full content list and order your kit here. Kits will be shipping mid-November. 

I'll be tackling some foundation pages soon along with releasing some new overlays and templates for 2014.

Here's a closer look at the items: 

Double-sided pattern papers. Again, if you pre-order you'll get two sets so you can use both the front and the back. 

Really awesome TALL gold-foil chipboard alphabet. 

Sticker sheets including a white white alpha, kraft postage stamp and super cool word tabs. 

The kit includes three chipboard pages - this year I plan to mix in some other pages besides the ones in the page protectors. The chipboard pages include a checklist, a calendar + a circle die-cut page that I can't wait to use. 

There are die-cut gold foil labels (in the top image they look black or a very dark red - it's because they are hard to photograph) and plastic words in my handwriting: tradition, twinkle, twentyfive, december, and celebrate. 

A 4x6 stamp set.

Wood veneer numbers that go up to 31 + gold glitter chipboard trees, hearts and stars + 3 rubber banners (like the December Daily® one shown above).

    I tried doing December Daily last year (without buying the kit) and failed miserably. I decided last year that I needed to buy the kit if I wanted this project to work for me. I was prepared to buy one this year and when I saw the pre order come up i just ordered it. Yeah their was a chance that I wouldn't love it but having a finished album in the end was worth it to me. So happy that I LOVE this kit and I can't wait to get started this year

      Expedited shipping means approximately 3-5 business days from the date shipped. Kits will be shipping mid-November (emphasis on early-mid not late-mid).

    The kit looks amazing Ali! This is my first time using a December Daily kit and I'm really excited. Thanks so much for the expedited shipping. That's a big comfort to me in the UK knowing it will arrive in time. I can't wait for it to arrive so I can start playing now!

    This is great news! I have done 5 years of December Daily now, and this is my first year where I have purchased a kit to help me. Now with the news about expedited shipping I may also try pre-assembly of my album for the first time too. I am in New Zealand, so will be great to possibly get this before December 1st! Very excited!

    Hi Ali
    Can you tell us once we start getting our kits and in December will you be opening up the classroom area for December Daily like it has for Week in the Life? It was such a great sharing environment and helped me stay on track with the week and gave me so many ideas and inspiration or photos and moments in our everyday life. It was my first week in the life and this will be my first December Daily.

    I remember doing this when you first started and love that you now have kits. So are there instructions for each page? Are there prompts if you don't buy the kit?

      Hi - this album does not come with instructions although I do share my process both in working with the album before and every day in December. You can view my past posts here to get an idea of what each day on my blog looks like in December.

    Expedited shipping for international orders is a very welcome thing. I live in a capital city in Australia and order my DD on 15 November and it didn't arrived until 29 December. I order the WITL kit on 3 October 2014 and it still hasn't arrived.

    Love it, will you be doing an option without the album? With our dollar a little low atm (Australia) it becomes a bit pricey at this time of year even with the generous offer of expedite shipping OS.

      Hi - we are not doing an option without the album this year. We will definitely consider it for next year.

    Hello Ali, I am thinking about trying this project for the first time. I am not creative and will follow your lead and learn. Have you decided on which album cover you will be choosing? I will choose the one you use as I am not one to know color combinations besides the normal "primary" colors I use with my first grade class. Thank you, John

      I'm using the red (but either are designed to be great for the holiday).

    Is the red album cover a TRUE 'red-red' (like last year's red spine on the album), or, is it appear more like a vintage, burnt "orangey" red? The photo looks like it is more like a vintage red-orange (and not the TRUE 'red-red' like last year's album).

      Hi - it is a warmer red this year (has more orange in it).
