Today and for the entire month of December, I am a Guest Designer at One Story Down!!! I am super excited about this and so far I LOVE the store and working with Lauren has been awesome!!!  So head on over and check out all the new products.

Tomorrow I will also begin offering a 31 Days of December Album Free, here on my blog.  This album can be used for any Holi-Day you may celebrate, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza or any other.  Spread the Joy and tell everyone!  Each day I will offer you 1 (2 page) 8 x 8 template to download. Each template comes in a psd and tiff.  Collect all 31 days (a total of 62 pages) and you will have a full album you can cherish of your December Holi-Day moments. There is also a cover page.

Holiday Tape

Over the past couple of years, I have offered free templates to capture your December Stories.  In December of 2010, I created a 6×6 size mini album for the 25 days of Christmas and I added 6 days of numbers for those wanting the full month.  This set is available for sale in my store. It can be used for any year or any holiday.

In December 2011, I offered an 8 x 8 versatile photo, 25 days of Christmas album.  This album gives you the option of using a 1, 2, or a 3 photo layout.  You can see the details HERE  on how to change the template and inspiration from my 2010 album. This set is available for sale in my store, and this set can also be used for any year or any holiday.

I will be making my 31 Days of December Album, a 6 x 6 album.  I like the smaller table top size and decided to continue with this size as I have in the past to keep consistent.

I resampled my 8 x 8 templates down to a 6 x 6 size.  To do this in photoshop, just select “Image” then “Image Size” and change to 6 x 6.  Make sure your “Scale Size” and “Constraint Proportions” are checked.  Just remember you can always resample down to a smaller  size but you don’t want to resample up to a larger size as this can result in poorer image quality.

I have always used the Bo Bunny’s naked Albums. It is available online and at my local scrapbook store!

Here are some great examples of what you can put in your album:

Holiday decorating photos

Holiday Lights

Non-related everyday life photos

Christmas letters to Santa

If you have not done a December Album, let this be your year.  This FREE Template album makes it so simple, easy, and fast.  AND when you have done a page or two, be sure you share your layouts with the rest of us and upload to the Roadside Flickr Group!  Bookmark this blog and come back tomorrow for your first download.
