I have been scrapping for 8 years and the main thing I have noticed with my layouts is the lack of journalling I use to journal and record every little detail. Last year while I was looking at Ali Edwards Blog I came across her Days of December Album I was inspired by this album so much so that I did it and i have to say I have I really enjoyed it. This album got me out of my comfort zone and made me start journalling. Everyday I made sure I did a Christmas activity with my children we did everything from Making gingerbread men, choc royal plum puddings, candy cane reindeer's, visited the Myers Christmas Windows, Christmas Carols I even tried two attempts to make a gingerbread house and failed the list goes on and on.

The best part about this album is that you use all different brands of Christmas papers and embellishments and seeing all of the new Christmas products that Bumble Bee are bringing in I will be defiantly doing it again this year. I love mixing the old and new products. Last years album I covered in my favorite patchwork fabric, and what was suppose to be 1 page per day sometimes ended into be 2 pages per day but I have to say that I love my album and so do the children they love reading about last years Christmas adventure as they call it.

Bumble bee Crafts have a great range of albums that can be used for this inspiring project
The Krafts Albums and Noteworthy Albums are perfect for personalizing your own cover, The flocked mini albums would add that elegant touch to Christmas. I think my pick this year will be the NEW Making Memories Mistletoe embroidered felt ring binder

We would love you to take up the Ali Edwards Days of December album with us and you can even showcase your creations here on the Bumble Bee Blog. I will be starting preparing mine soon last year I prepared my pages prior to December which made it easier to just add my photos. My tip to you is keep a journal of what you did each day it makes it easier to journal in your album.

Here are some link to some beautiful Christmas goodies that Bumble Bee will be getting in soon, also check our there clearance section because you can get some old Christmas stock that will be perfect for this project. This is the felt ring binder from making Memories Making Memories Di-Cut Mini-albums Making Memories Kraft Albums Flocked mini-albums

Here are some links to the inspiring Ali Edwards books

The most important link is to Ali Edwards Days of December Album I hope you are as excited about this project as I was when I started doing it last year
