This week I’ve been thinking about next month and working on my 4th December Daily™ album. I ordered Ali’s base kit and got the red 6 x 4 album. (You can still order her goodies and have them for your December projects.)
I was all set to do a 6 x 4 album (because the album is really adorable) but then I also recently acquired a gold Seven Paper Handbook and I’m thinking maybe 6 x 8 is in the cards after all. The album is gorgeous and gold for me feels very holiday.
And all that’s well and good but you know how sometimes you buy an awesome 6 x 8 album and you pop in your 6 x 8 page and it’s just a bit too short to actually fill the page protector? That’s happened to me a few times and every time, I just change the size of my page to 6 x 8-1/4 and I’m good to go.
This year, I will mix in my designs with Ali’s as I’ve done in past years. I created a free template set that includes three different page designs, but in two sizes: regular and tall. If you have an album with those taller pockets, use the tall files. If not, the regular.
The download includes a simple How To PDF for those of you who are new to Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Or, if you’re really feeling adventurous, consider signing up for Digi Basics with Cathy Z.
Of course, you can always email me with questions.
It’s a big week of new releases! Here’s a peek at what’s new in the shop (and on sale for 20% off through next Tuesday!)

Mini December Dates are a set of small sized digital stamps designed to work perfectly with the free 6 x 8 templates. Those dates fit right into the red rectangle on the free templates. Easy peasy.
J-Cards: December Days 01 also match the 6 x 8s and include 31 simple, layered, numbered templates. I plan to work these into my album in December.
J-Card: December Days 02 are simply the 3 x 4 matching card.
And this set features an even stripe plus a few stars patterns.
And yes, I will be incorporating these digital papers into the hybrid stuff I’ll be adding to my album.
Finally, two new 12 x 12 album sets. Say hello to The 12 x 12s.
Each set features the same page margins, designed to work in any printed book. I always worry about those margins being too narrow. These sets offer a lot of options for photos and stories, while ensuring your content won’t get cut off in the binding.
Suffice to say, I was a busy little bee this week.
A few of you have asked if I will be releasing a holiday card design this year. My answer: maybe. If I have one in my brain, it’s gotta happen this weekend or not at all, so stay tuned!
Enjoy the free set and have a great weekend!
