Ali Edwards Design Inc. | Weblog: My Hybrid December Day by day® Plans |

We’re excited to welcome Shannan again for the second publish in her sequence on working with digitals for December Day by day®! This week she’s sharing her plans for her 2021 album. Let’s dive proper in!

I do not find out about you, however 2021 turned out to be even worse than 2020 (who’d have thought?). Thank goodness for December Day by day.

I am planning to go hybrid this yr, which to me means utilizing digital provides to make a paper mini e-book. My common scrapbooking could be very clear, minimal and purely digital so it feels about proper that I get out some paper, scissors and glue to play a little bit this yr. Nothing too wild, however a bit out of my minimalist consolation zone. If I plug my Silhouette in, you’ll know I’ve gone off the deep finish.

My intention is to make a little bit handmade 4×5 mini e-book that I can add to as a lot or as little as I like and have enjoyable doing it. I received’t name it an album as a result of that’s a bit beneficiant for 2 items of chipboard held collectively by binder rings. Will probably be loads like my 2019 4×4 e-book.

I’m planning to make use of this yr’s December Day by day digitals kits plus some earlier collections, in addition to non-Christmas gadgets for my on a regular basis and summer time tales (which I hope there can be lots of). I’ll make most of my pages in Photoshop Parts and print from residence (on my Epson XP-8500) – mixing in some transparencies and vellum if the printer gods enable it. Pages can be glued again to again.

This received’t be a ‘every day’ album – I’m not even utilizing numbers on my pages this yr. I’d find yourself with 20 pages or 80 pages, it doesn’t matter. I’m going structure-free and transferring away from the 25-stories framework that the majority of my earlier albums have adopted. 

Up to now, I’ve labored on my album every day as a result of I actually loved writing within the second, selecting my story and getting my unfold made. This yr’s extra informal method means I’ll in all probability work on it each few days reasonably than every day.

All through December, I hope to construct my e-book as a set of 4×5 photographs, journal playing cards, patterned papers, stickers, lists, notes and ideas all hole-punched sure collectively. A bit of e-book that celebrates December, Christmas and summer time (which formally begins right here on December 1st).

This e-book can be heavy on photographs and journal playing cards as a result of they simply work so completely with this format. The small measurement and the concept I don’t have to stay to a set quantity of pages means I can add in additional of our day by day.

I’m so wanting ahead to engaged on this little e-book. I’m hoping it will likely be the proper mix of easy and enjoyable. Convey on December!
