I just can’t believe Christmas is less than a week away! Over the weekend I added all the photos I had printed at Sam’s Club to my December Daily album and finished up the additional embellishing. I also got a little ahead with the remainder of the album, planning out exactly what I still need to do and what photos I will take.
What I Have Learned So Far
- Batch photo printing is very time efficient and cost effective.
- Pockets are perfect for hiding messing handwriting on shipping tags!
- I should have made more hand-stamped embellishments beforehand.
- Non-Christmas paper totally works, but I miss that extra ‘sparkle’.
- Traditional December Daily albums are very very thick!
December 2011: Days 1-13
The majority of my supplies are listed in my December Daily Foundation post.
What do you mean by photo batching?
Editing and sending photos to a commercial printer in one activity vs. doing it daily. I could have waited until the end but doing it halfway through and seeing the finished first half gives you a lot of momentum to finish it off!
Oh okay, that makes sense. That’s always how I get mine done. I never ordered them for DD by the day. Not enough hours in the day to do all that!
LOVE it! Maybe I should have done that too. I am waiting. Might have to get a few pages done soon just to see it started! Love your format and photos.
Thanks Dawn! Seeing it come together definitely makes it feel totally worth it.
Am doing one like yours, except that i alter a mini binder and I did choose Xmas papers and tons of non Xmas papers but that match my color scheme. Am loving this project and yes December Daily is real thick!!!
Awesome – can’t wait to see it!
