Scrapbook Christmas… in January! Make Christmas easier by knowing you'll have the important details ready to scrap in January when Christmas is over!

Christmas is a busy time of year. The idea of scrapbooking every day, or capturing all of the special moments seems like a brilliant idea.

It is, but… who has the time? Shopping, wrapping presents, attending Christmas concerts and parties, decorating the house, baking holiday treats… are you worn out just thinking about it all?

And then on top of everything you are supposed to scrapbook it too?

Enough already!

Let’s scrapbook Christmas… in January!

In December you will receive:

  1. Short email prompts for 25 days with your daily mission of the Christmas moment you need to capture, and a link to the class page.
  2.  The daily class page will have more details about capturing the photos and journaling for the day, as well as alternate ideas or different ways to interpret the prompt.
  3. Daily tips help to keep you on track and be sure you are ready to scrapbook your memories in January.

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is the cranberry congealed salad my Mom makes. It sounds disgusting, but it is super yummy! It has cranberries, cool whip, cream cheese, pineapple tidbits and pecans along with a few other ingredients, and it is mixed up and frozen in a muffin tin. My son also loves the “pink Stuff” as he calls it, and he begs for it year round. In fact, for his 15th birthday, he asked for a mini-fridge for his room that would be kept full of the pink stuff all the time!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:11 am

      I’ll admit, I heard the word congealed and my nose wrinkled up a bit! Your description makes it sound much more appetizing! Thanks for hopping and good luck!

  • Carolina 24 November, 2015, 6:43 am

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is the vast array of amazing desserts, of course!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:12 am

      Oh yum! My mom makes the most amazing spiced sugar cookies. I adore them! Best of luck with the contest.

  • Linda Hitt 24 November, 2015, 7:12 am

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is sharing it with family!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:13 am

      I TOTALLY agree. Turkey just isn’t the same without the family to share it with. Good luck with the contest!

  • Bethany DeWitt 24 November, 2015, 7:25 am

    Thanks for the chance to win… hope you have a wonderful holiday season

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:14 am

      Thanks Bethany! I hope you do too. Best of luck with the contest too!

  • Alisha 24 November, 2015, 7:37 am

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is eating all those yummy desserts!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:15 am

      Yum! My brother-in-law always pulls out his chef hat and makes an amazingly decadent dessert at Christmas. Every year it becomes the new family favourite! I can’t wait to see what he comes up with this year! Good luck with the contest.

  • Nancy 24 November, 2015, 8:03 am

    Turkey is always my very favorite! Thanks very much!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:17 am

      You are a girl after my own heart Nancy! Turkey is my fave too! Best of luck with the contest!

  • Angie 24 November, 2015, 8:05 am

    I love ham and sweet potatoes! Thanks for sharing with us.

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:19 am

      Mmmm…. I love sweet potatoes. Funny thing, I’d never had them as a child. The first time I tried them was at my husband’s family Christmas. I loved them from the first bite! Good luck with the contest!

  • Jerrilee Robinson 24 November, 2015, 9:22 am

    Thanks for sharing!! My fave part of Christmas dinner is sharing it with my husband. It is just the two of us (we never had kids) and all our relatives live hours away. So Christmas is our own personal little celebration.

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:24 am

      That sounds so special Jerrilee! 🙂 Best of luck with the contest!

  • Lisa 24 November, 2015, 9:27 am

    Love the idea of scrapping Christmas after all the busy-ness is done. And it gives you something to look forward to in January, when the days can seem a little dreary. Oh, and my favorite part of Christmas dinner has got to be the sweet potato casserole. I mean, it’s a dessert masquerading as a veggie side – who wouldn’t love that? LOL

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 9:30 am

      That’s exactly why I made this class Lisa! I loved the idea of December Daily, but the busy-ness and excitement of Christmas didn’t make it very successful for me. I needed a plan that would let me scrapbook the memories at a time that wasn’t filled with shopping, parties, concerts and so much more!

      And sweet potato casserole… your description nailed it! Mmmmm….

  • Raesha de Ruiter Zylker 24 November, 2015, 9:31 am

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is actually Christmas Eve dinner – we go very traditional with tamales, spanish rice, posole and pinto beans. We’ve adopted this New Mexico tradition since the first year we lived in New Mexico (1986) – When my mother in last still lived here I used to make tamales with her a few days before Christmas. Then on Christmas day we usually do leftovers, but sometimes we have a ham dinner. But I always look forward to Christmas Eve dinner.

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 10:57 pm

      That sounds so delicious Raesha! Good luck!

  • Karyn Allen 24 November, 2015, 9:49 am

    This class is reason enough alone to get the bundle…great idea. Thanks for the opportunity to win the Bundle. I love the simplicity of our Christmas dinner – Ham with Cherry Sauce, Rolls, Potatoes and Buttered Peas. At Thanksgiving I go all out with baking, making, etc., etc., etc. Christmas is nice since it is simple in comparison (I don’t make the Ham!)

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 10:59 pm

      Oh my gosh Karyn, I’m so thrilled that you would say that! I really do love this class and I’m so happy it will be part of the bundle this year!

      A simple Christmas dinner does sound nice after going all out for Thanksgiving! Good luck with the draw!

  • Libby Wiers 24 November, 2015, 9:50 am

    We don’t always have the same thing for Christmas dinner, depends on who is hosting. But we almost always have carrot casserole, whatever else we are eating. Family tradition for every holiday or gathering… Yours is a great class which would bear repeating!

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 11:00 pm

      I hope you’ll join in again Libby! It will be available to all of the alums for free to play along!

  • Candy Mills 24 November, 2015, 9:59 am

    My favourite part of Christmas Dinner is having my family around me…

  • Sharlene Piscitelli 24 November, 2015, 10:16 am

    Thanks for the awesome sneak peek! The bundle looks amazing!

  • Amber 24 November, 2015, 10:42 am

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is my mother’s mac and cheese. It is really good with lots of cheese add in. I look forward to this side dish all year.

  • Jenny McGee 24 November, 2015, 10:56 am

    My fave part of Christmas dinner is the family and friends gathered. The magical feeling of Christmas. And of course, yummy desserts at the end.

  • LeeAnn 24 November, 2015, 12:20 pm

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is the sweet potatoes, just plain old baked in the skin sweet potatoes with butter and brown sugar! Yum! Plus the old fashioned bone in ham!

  • Jessal 24 November, 2015, 1:35 pm

    Thank you for sharing!

  • Ruth Reaves 24 November, 2015, 1:50 pm

    My favorite part of the meal is the dressing, it’s my mother- in- laws recipe which I Have now passed down to my daughters.

  • Valerie 24 November, 2015, 2:01 pm

    This year, I want to take advantage even more of December.
    Make full of decorations myself. And for the Christmas Eve, my favorite moment is the tasting of the foie gras with some champagne.
    I am French for nothing! Lol

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 11:09 pm

      Ooh là là! Trés délicieux!

      The goal of the Scrapbook Christmas in January class is to help you capture the special moments so you are free to scrap them in January. Hopefully it will help you capture the magic of the Christmas season!

      Bon chance!

  • Michelle/ShelA 24 November, 2015, 2:44 pm

    Thank you for inspiring us to capture the memories before they are gone!

  • heather 24 November, 2015, 3:31 pm

    My favorite part of Christmas dinner is the Christmas cake that my mom makes as well as the trifle.

  • Annette 24 November, 2015, 3:43 pm

    Christmas dinners are not the same since both of our parents are gone now.
    We both come from large families and everyone seems to have a new tradition to follow. We do try to get together at least once over Christmas and it is so much fun to see all the brothers and sisters. My favorite part is being with my family!!

  • Kathy Thisted 24 November, 2015, 3:55 pm

    Love the dec in jan idea! My favorite part of the meal is the turkey with cranberry jelly Yum!

  • amelia 24 November, 2015, 4:15 pm

    my fav part of Christmas dinner is the people I share it with. and the leftovers (=not having to cook for a few days!!)

  • Hearher 24 November, 2015, 5:15 pm

    My favourite part of dinner is who is around the table. My Family!!!

  • lisa lee 24 November, 2015, 5:59 pm

    Thank you! My favorite part of Christmas dinner is the laughter!

  • Pat 24 November, 2015, 6:32 pm

    The best part of Christmas is the grandchildren. Some of the comments and moments are so precious.
    Thanks for the reminders for some of the simple but important things in our lives and the importance of recording them.

  • Tina C 24 November, 2015, 7:55 pm

    Why eating it of course 🙂 Our dinner is usually a light one with ham, usually squash and a couple of Christmas cookies for dessert 🙂 We are emptynesters so it’s just the 2 of us so no big deal 🙂

    • Alice. 24 November, 2015, 11:10 pm

      Oh Tina, that is the perfect answer! Lol!

      Good luck!

  • joAnn 24 November, 2015, 8:25 pm

    my favorite part of Christmas dinner is the feeling of love when the entire family is there

  • Kathy Martin 24 November, 2015, 8:48 pm

    My favorite part of Christmas is the magic that happens.

  • Wendy 24 November, 2015, 9:29 pm

  • Susan Best 25 November, 2015, 11:05 am
