Edit: I've updated this blog post to provide the direct link for the kit + a few more details. Enjoy!
It's what a lot of us have been waiting for....the Gossamer Blue 2013 December Memories Kit. The photo below shows the kit in it's entirety. It's a big one, friends, jam packed full of wonderful holiday supplies to create your own December Daily type album.
Details: The kit is up for sale early today to Gossamer Blue subscribers. Remaining kits will be up for sale tomorrow at 12:00 Noon PST. The price for the kit is $99.95. A complete kit description and more details + additional photos of the cut files and printables will be available at the Gossamer Blue site tomorrow. There will be a class for this kit that begins on November 1st. Kits did sell out last year so I advise not to wait too long if you're interested this year. Kits start shipping on Monday, October 14th.
We all want plenty of alphabets in our holiday kit, right? You get 5 total alphabets with this year's December Memories Kit. Two red, one gold shimmer, one aqua and one chalkboard. Woohoo!
Totally cruddy photo here below because these were spread out on my countertop with poor lighting. But a very important factor.....the kit comes with numbers from 1-25. I know this is a big question with holiday album kits. You can see at the bottom left, there are lots of other little blank accents where you can finish off the month to 31 if you want to. I will be stitching over these as they're nice and flat.
These four alphabets all have numbers too so you can easily finish off the numbers with kit contents.
I worked with Lori and Elle from Elle's Studio to design the stamp set for this year's kit. Great quality stamps and there a lot of images packed into this set. My favorite part is the label at the top. You can stamp one of these right onto a journaling card...or perhaps stamp them onto cardstock ahead of time and trim them out.....then you can fill in the left square with the "DAY #" stamp and add numbers. In the event section you can write or type your daily activity. All of the stamps in the row with the star fit into the left square of the label. A regular office supply date stamp fits into the "DATE" section. Fun stuff.
Okay folks, there you have it. The whole kit and caboodle. I've shown you the entire kit contents so you know exactly what you'll be receiving when your kit arrives. You. will. love. it. You will.
My plan this year: I'll be doing a blog post soon in which I explain why I'm doing a separate mini album this year vs having my entire DD in my Project Life album like I did last year. Just some food for thought. I plan to make my page inserts in advance as much as possible and then for the rest of the kit, I plan to use the items for my regular Project Life so it will have a little holiday feel also....and the rest of the kit will be used for cards and packaging.
Be sure to check the Gossamer Blue site out starting tomorrow for updates on the kit, the pricing, how the class will work, etc. I'm so excited now for December. I hope you'll join us!
