Hello December 2016

Published by under cards | Oct 12 2016

One of my favourite projects of the year is coming up – my annual Hello December album.

Hello December 2016 Album

What is a Hello December album?

Sometimes called a ‘December Daily’, Hello December is a 6″x8″ album where you record the everyday happenings, fun family activities, and festive celebrations throughout December. Hello December is the suite of products Stampin’ Up! produces to make this whole process simple, easy, coordinated and fun.

Preparing the album

With mine, I prepare the album beforehand (usually during November) and then fill it with the photos as the moments happen throughout December.

Printing the photos

I usually take the photos on my phone, then every couple of days throughout December I print them out at home.

Many places like Big W and Kmart have print kiosks now, so it’s not usually an issue to print out the photos as you go. Don’t think about it too much. Just print out the photos and cut them down with your paper trimmer if needed when you get home.

Journalling

Even for those of us who don’t like writing a lot in our albums, it’s important to record the little details. If you’re anything like me, you’ll convince yourself you won’t forget but by the next day you can’t remember what you did or even what you had for dinner!

The easiest thing I found is to write a little note to myself in the Notes app on my phone.  It might be just a little quote from the kids that I want to remember, or maybe a record of times and dates, or just some fun activities. Record these things as they happen and you won’t have to spend one minute trying to remember while you’re pulling it all together.

Hello December by Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! offers an awesome Project Life range called Hello December, and they’ve been bringing out a new one each year. This makes it soooo easy to create the album and fill it with pretty cards, places for journalling (recording the who, what, when and where) and even embellishments to make it really your own.

Want to learn more?

Check out this awesome video with Donna from Stampin’ Up!. She explains it all so well.

Here is the link to the template that Donna mentioned in the video: Hello December Project Life Page Layout Template

And another video here which shows you more about the products available in this collection.

Get started

For your convenience, here are all the products used in the video. To learn more about each of them, just click on the picture and a link will take you to the item in my store.

Order your 2016 album supplies from my online store, and I’ll be happy to email you more ideas and photos of how I embellish my album this year.

I feel passionate about this project, and I know the value in recording these memories and moments as they happen. Life changes so quickly, especially if you have young children or grandchildren. But for every one of us, no matter our stage in life, we’ll never have these days again. Our life next year will be different. Don’t underestimate the value in recording the ‘little things’ as well as the big events.

Contact Simone to set up your own Hello December album or order online.

Happy stamping,
