Scrapbook Sunday: December Daily

1Hi, guys! Scrapbook Sunday is backkkkk. Apologies for the short break. I've been scrapbooking for an upcoming e-course (I'll share a peek at the end of this post!). So thanks for being patient with me and I'll be back next week. With that said, this week I have something AMAZZZING to share with you! Laura's December Daily Album! She did such an incredible job. You'd never believe this is one of her virgin voyages into scrapboooking. Here's what she said about her experience-

"I had known about this challenge for a couple of years now, and although it sounded really fun, I think I was also intimidated by it. I haven’t really done much scrapbooking, so to be honest, I was afraid I wasn’t going to be very good at it. Thankfully, Elsie convinced me to give it a try this year and I’m so glad that she did! I will admit though that this was not an easy challenge for me. I found it tough to take pictures (let alone interesting pictures) on the mundane boring days, I kept forgetting to take pictures at events I wanted to remember, and the whole process of choosing/editing/resizing/printing/cutting the photos took way more time than I was expecting. Once I had all the photos printed though, it was really fun to finally put them together and see the book come to life. I would definitely suggest completing the book in stages throughout the month so it doesn’t all sneak up on you at once at the end. It makes the process a lot more manageable. Overall, I love the end result and I’m so glad that I accepted the challenge this year. It was definitely a lot of work, but I documented so many special moments that I’m sure I’ll brave it all again next year!"

  • LOVE it! Looking forward to the next scrapbook sundays. Your posts inspire me to get creative during the week. xx

  • Yes, this is beautiful! I think this will be a super fun scrapbook to make with my roommates. A good way to start the year off! I would like to do a digital version of this as well to put onto Facebook to share, but Facebook always downsizes my files. How do retain the high quality on my photos when I upload it to Facebook?

    Thank you guys, we are so excited to start our scrapbooking adventure!! 🙂

  • Beautiful!
    I love to hear some tips for photographing our scrapbook albums. We always get a hard time on this.

  • I’m so glad this is back! I hope we get to see Elsie’s too. 🙂

    Laura G – your book is so cool! I love all the sparkle and hits of gold. I hope you will be a part of Elsie’s scrapbook class – you’ve got mad style!!!

  • This is beautiful! I love all the bright colors and the glitter. I’ve never been a big scrapbooker myself either but I also want to try. It’s so important to do something special with our special memories and a scrapbook seems like a good way to remember them!

  • Laura’s book is gorgeous… How fun! I will def have to do December Daily next year. And I can’t wait for the e course! By the way: Elsie, I would LOVE some examples of creative ways to use the products in your line, examples of inks that look cool together, what you’ve done with the collection, etc. I hope that’s in the ecourse or a future Sunday 🙂 Thanks!

  • Would love a supply list for this – that sweater stamp is awesome. Thanks so much!

  • Laura did an awesome job! As someone who has only been doing Project Life for a year, I still find myself intimidated by the process. This just goes to show that little albums like this with pocket pages are a great way to document life, no matter how hard you think it might be to start!!!

  • This is so fun. I think I want to do it. =) So glad I saw it before the month was over.

  • i’m sure you’ve mentioned this before, but where do you get your albums and inserts at?

  • The scrapbooks you show are always so beautiful! One day I want to be able to make something half as gorgeous as your keepsakes. As always, keep it up!

  • I so need to get back into scrapbooking! I love how these pictures are edited with the captions, what was used? This would make it so much easier to throw pictures onto the pages and not be so worried about the embellishing and everything!

  • Such a great album, is that one of the ones that will be on sale at ABM shop?

  • Oh wow! She did a fantastic job!
    I’m extremely impressed.
    I like to scrapbook, but my problem is that I don’t have a camera. I’m limited to taking pictures on my phone and having them developed, so there isn’t really an opportunity for great photos.

  • I’d love to know from where are these folders and page protectors?

    I’ve been looking for alternatives to the project life(BH) system since they’re so poorly available here in Finland/Eu and those look perfect!!

  • Laura, you did a wonderful job…loved the album, so creative and full of life and love!


  • It turned out SO wonderful! I’m so impressed!!
    My problem is the most basic! I can’t figure out how to resize pictures so they don’t print out, taking up an entire sheet of paper.

  • OMG , i Love The Gold and all Sparkling Things on the Book!
    I startet scrapbooking 2 month ago and i Love it an your Post is so inspireing!!

  • I love the scrapbooks that you post in your blog! QuesRion where do you find these albums and materials?

  • Love it! I just finished my first December Daily Album as well. Here’s my blog post if you’re interested.

  • Laura did such a great job… and I can’t wait to see what the e-course is like!!

  • It takes ages to make – but once you have it; woaw.

  • Laura is my cool girl inspiration.

    I LOVE this scrapbook especially the screenshot of the text…such a good idea.

  • I don’t know if this is a silly question, but where do I get all of the supplies!? I can never find the right binder and when I look for page sleeves I can never find ones with all different size photo pockets like Laura’s! Can you do a post just on supplies? Thaaaaanks guys!

  • Gorgeous! I love the mini albums! I’m always just done the big ones, but this year I might have to make the year of the mini;)

  • This is great!! I love all the gold and the letters, too. Laura has beautiful handwritting!

    I hope you guys can cover the editing/printing process for these types of projects, soon. Maybe you have a method that can help us all enjoy the process? 😀

  • very excited about the e course and can’t wait for the messy box…super job laura and I too want to know the supplies used

  • Laura’s album really came out great! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures with us. I can really relate to a lot of the challenges she struggled with – that’s why right now, I usually only do one scrapbook spread per season. Unless there’s a very special event that comes up in there somewhere. Mind you, I have been getting better at taking pictures lately so that might change.

    xx Kathryn

    P.S. Excited for the ecourse!!!!

  • I realized later that the letters on the front are Todd & Laura’s initials, but at first I thought it was an abbreviation for “legit.” As I looked through the pictures of the album, I thought “Love the gold, love the black and white photos, this IS LEGIT!” Lol! So great job all around, Laura.

  • That’s such a beautiful scrapbook! I’m currently working on a travel scrapbook as well as a Project Life one for my university experience so I’m sort of backtracking three years, which is really overwhelming! Can’t wait for more scrapbooking advice 🙂

  • I love the color scheme of Laura’s album. I have the first week of my dec daily album done and this perfect motivation to finks off the album. I can’t wait to get more info on the new e-course.

  • Lovely post! I have started a scrapbook this year and I’ve been loving being able to get all arty and crafty! X

  • This turned out great! Would LOVE to know what album you used. Thinking I could get one for next year. Good job.

  • This is gorgeous! All of my attempts to scrapbook have been complete flops because they end up too complicated. Thus one looks easier since it looks like you have pre-made pages or something. Is there a kit I can buy to do this too?

  • Love it Laura! So sparkly!!

    Elsie, will we see your finished December daily? I’ve been looking forward to it! Also very excited to see you have a scrapbooking ecourse!! And can’t wait for your scrapbook product line, I’m waiting on them before I make an album from my wedding last November.

    Keep up the wonderful work guys. Xx

  • Love it. And I love that size scrap book too! I wish there were better craft stockists in the UK. Well, maybe there are but I am yet to find them!

  • Oh my gosh, Laura! It’s so simple, and clean, and fresh and beautiful! Great job! Can’t believe this is your first DD album!!! <3

  • Love it! I’ve been thinking about scrapbooking for a while now. I think next month I’m gonna give it a try. Please keep posting inspiration like this, it really helps a lot! And if you can, make a post about the different ways to start and what equipment you need. Thanks!

    Xo – Laetitia

  • I love it! May you tell us what album she used and all the numbers and embellishments are from where?
    Thank you

  • wow! it looks really amazing. 🙂 i definitely want to do this this year as well! such a fun way to look back on a lovely month. 🙂
    xo, cheyenne

  • This is SO cute! She did such an amazing job!! It makes me want to start scrapbooking 🙂

    Maybe that could be something to incorporate for this new year!

    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  • What was used for the book and pages? Looks beautiful and I should really attempt this challenge!! Hmmm… Wonder I I have a pic for everyday this year?

  • I just love your style and pinned this for future inspiration! Loving the glitter pages too!

  • Such a fun album! I love the sparkle and the use of text. I’m so excited to see more about your scrapbooking class too, I definitely could use something to boost my skills and confidence so that I can actually tackle my photo backlog.

  • Love seeing this as inspiration for my next scrapbooking project. Would love to know what album she used, as well as the cute date inserts, etc.
