Hello! I was able to get a few hours of sleep, and now I want to share with you my December daily book kits. I love the idea of a December daily journal to record all of the little details of the holiday season as well as family traditions and memories. However, I wanted to create them with vintage books and vintage ephemera. You know, more of the things I love, and less of what you can find in just any craft store. I also wanted to be sure to create kits that would appeal to a variety of styles or color themes. So this is what I came up with.
This kit is the "Christmas Giving" December daily kit. I have been collecting these little vintage books for over a year. Any time I found one that I could rescue and upcycle I grabbed it. All of the book kits were created with vintage book covers. They're also already gutted, trimmed, and holes are punched for you making them ready to bind. I also have included precut and punched cardstock pages in each kit. So, they're ready to start using and embellishing from the moment you open your kit and bind it with the included binding rings.
Each kit has a packet of new papers to choose from, including copies of vintage wrapping paper, paper doilies, and so much more. Then the kits also contain a packet of vintage papers to choose from including vintage sheet music, vintage paper doilies, vintage tags, (perfect for little journaling spots), vintage Christmas seals, and more! All of the kits have some lovely flocked paper, and vintage wallpapers as well.
And, that's STILL not all that is included! There's also vintage fabric and trims, hand glittered chipboard embellishments, bare chipboard embellishments, and other glittered embellishments! Seriously, they have SO much stuff! I had to tape the boxes closed so that would stay closed.
(All of the above photos are from the Christmas Gvining kit.)
The 2nd set of red book kits are also using vintage book covers and all of the other stuff mentioned above. There are a few differences, but not many. This set is also a bit more petite in size, measuring 4"x6".
Then of course, I had to have a few gold kits, right? I adore gold, ivory, and just a touch of pink together, so that was the inspiration behind these kits. Most of the gold kits are already sold out, but that's ok. I will be happy to make more, so be sure to let me know if your choice is gone and you would like another in this style.
All of the gold kits have basically the same parts to them. There's packets of new papers, and packets of old papers. There's vintage wallpaper and lovely flocked paper. There's also lots of embellishments, doilies, and vintage lace and trims.
The gold kits have some truely beautiful new fine papers as well, such as printed transparencies, glittered papers, textured paper, and more, all in those beautiful shades of gold and ivory, and a touch of pink. The core cardstock pages are a lovely ivory.
You can find the book kits, the ornament kit, and all of the new supplies right here.
Thanks for taking your time to look through all of these photos, and thank you to all that have already been ordering. I appreciate it, I really do.
I will have more project kits soon. It's not even Thanksgiving yet, so there's still plenty of holiday crafting left in me, and I have several plans and ideas for more kits to come.
Much love, Cerri
