This year I am teaching a class with eleven other scrapbookers for Big Picture called December Duos. You can read more about the online workshop here but the gist is 12 days of inspiration for photo taking and documenting your Christmas season. The theme focuses on capturing pairs (light & dark, red & green, warm & cold, etc.).
I designed a few layouts in advance using older photos to serve as inspiration for the class, but I am also one of the five teachers that will be building an album in "real-time" this year and sharing via a video chat on January 2. I am excited to have this course as motivation to work on my album and I am so far am enjoying the paired theme. I so admire what Ali does with December Daily™ every year. Her albums are just gorgeous and you can follow along with her progress here. Yet, every year I lose steam on the "daily" documentation so this pairing thing may work out better for me.
I'm using a Basic Grey capture album, some Basic Grey pocket pages and then a slew of products (linked at the bottom of this post). I can't describe how much I've loved playing with the pockets in this album and thinking about photos to take this season (extra fun with the addition of the kiddo).
Throughout this post are a few peeks of my "real-time" 2013 album so far. I'll be working on it throughout the season then finishing it up right after Christmas in order to share via video with the December Duos students. If you're interested in signing up for the workshop, you can read more and do so here. And through 12/10/2013 you can save $5 OFF the class by using promo code DECDUO.
Thanks for taking a peek!
