Today I got a peek at "Your December Story" (that's the December class thought by Debbie Hodge) and I'm giving away a free pass to the class!!
As I told you earlier this month, I am doing a December Daily type of album this year again and since it is my 4th year of doing it, it has become a little repetitive so I wanted to mix things up a bit this year!!
I checked out lesson 1 of Debbie Hodge's Your December Story this weekend, and I LOVED it!
Your December Story is shaped around the Hero's Journey
This December, like Dorothy dropped into Oz or Alice tumbled into Wonderland, you will receive a call to adventure. You will move from the ordinary world into a one of magic and tests as the holiday season arrives.
Many of the most-loved and best remembered stories play out in a story form described by Joseph Campbell as "the hero's journey." This class has prompts and page ideas for visual storytelling that have you telling Your December Journey, from the heralds, to the challenges, mentors, special tools and the return to the known world and what you take forward.
This is what I think of the class and how it inspired me
The lesson came with 20 prompts, lots of ideas of stories that could be told right now, even before December has arrived, different ways of telling each of the stories, layout design ideas and even ideas for possible titles!
After answering the prompts (it took me about 20 minutes to do that) I started going through the lesson and I had to stop several times to jot ideas down. My head was spinning!! In a (very) good way!! :)
Since it's still very early in November, I tried to limit myself to two pages of my story "leading to December". I'm pretty pleased with my pages which are setting the tone and helping the reader to embark IN THE STORY with me. Here are my first two pages:
My second page is all about welcoming the Spirit of Christmas into our lives. Lesson 1 invites you to look around and see what is already there, at this time of the year. I was pleased that I could include all these moments in my album. In my classic December Daily album, I would have probably left them out. Sadly.
And Santa is already sitting at the mall, waiting for us and waving and chanting Ho!Ho!Ho!
(you can go here to check the front page of my album and to check the supplies I am using)
I am definitely in the spirit of Christmas and I am ready to document our December story in a new way and in a more global way than just documenting one moment a day. Are you in?! :)

**FREE Die cut and Printable files
While working on my December album, I wanted to try my hand at making some customized files and I came up with a couple of die cut files that will work perfectly with your Silhouette:
And some overlays for your photos (or you could print them onto card stock or patterned papers):
It is likely that I will make more and share them as I go, but for now you can get these for free. All I ask is that you become a member of my blog. When it's done, send me an e-mail: mariepierre_c(at)hotmail(dot)com.
Write "Die cut files" in the subject line and I'll send them to you shortly after per e-mail.
If you are already a member and want the files, send me an e-mail and I'll be happy to send them your way!! :)
If you register to "your December story" using my link
Click here to visit Get It Scrapped.
I'll have a bonus file for you which is the title of the class in a cut file. Just send me an e-mail. If you already registered through me and want the file, send me an e-mail too! :)
And on that, I thank you so much for stopping by!!
Make sure you add my blog address to your Feedly or that you become a member of the blog to follow me on my December journey and to know when I'll share more cut files. I still have no concrete plans, but I'm pretty sure I'll get to play more with my Silhouette during the month of December when I do so, you'll know it first! :)
