December Daily Blog Hop!

Although Christmas is months away from now, I can't help but get excited thinking about this special time of year and of course, how I'll document the month of December. I've put together a December Daily book for the past three years now, and I'm excited to make a new one this year using Studio Calico's December Daily kit

Right now, my plan is to continue to do Project Life in December and use that for everyday stuff, while all holiday-related moments will go in my December Daily. So it won't actually be a 'daily' book, but rather, a compilation of holiday moments during the Christmas season. The thought of it makes me happy :)

Studio Calico's December Daily kit is all kinds of beautiful and I can't wait to use it for this year's mini-book! Here's a bit more about it: 

This year’s kit pairs a modern mix of red, aqua and green with natural woodgrains and the elegant glint of gold accents. We’ve curated the very best holiday designs and paired them with classic pieces from a variety of manufacturers including Studio Calico, Life.Love.Paper, Crate Paper, My Mind’s Eye, Hello Forever, Rachel Gresham, Jennifer Johner and Tim & Beck. This kit is built around an exclusive Handbook album, and you’ll receive a 6x8in paper pad that features 12 double sided papers (two of each design!) and a collection of journaling cards to fill in the pockets. An exclusive 4x6in stamp set from Elise Blaha Cripe and Studio Calico will let you track everything from the date, to who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. We’ve also included embellishments like a veneer alphabet, ultra thin washi tape, chipboard shapes, and ribbons to help you bring your own style to each page.

Don't the sneaks of the kit look lovely? 

As for some more random thoughts about December Daily, I know there are two things I want to include for sure:

1) confetti/shaker pockets (sequins + wood veneer! my favorites)
2) bokeh photos of my Christmas tree/Christmas lights.

Coincidentally, these two things were side by side in my DD last year :) I love how festive the loose sequins look in my book and I love photographing bokeh! #bluronpurpose y'all ;)

Studio Calico's December Daily kit is now available for pre-order and will begin shipping early October. Make sure to stop by Studio Calico's blog to see who else is participating in the hop! Thanks for visiting today :)
