My Printed December Daily Album

Apparently I don't have a problem remembering that it's 2012 and not 2011! My problem is that I was just so ready for 2012 that I made my December Daily 2011 "In Quotes" album with this front page:


Yup, that's right and I didn't even notice it until I opened up the package and was flipping through it and then I realized it! Oh and this isn't the first time this has happened. Look closely at this poster and find the mistake.

Do you see it! Apparently it's 2102. I'm WAY into the future here.

Thankfully I saved the .psd and I can just switch out the numbers for my December Daily album and it only cost $6.00. So I think I'll just re-do the cover and order another one or I could just keep it the way it is and get a good laugh each Christmas. As far as the calendar poster template.....well, I didn't realize my mistake until the mom opened her gift on Christmas day! Everyone had a good laugh.

I was so excited to show you all my finished book and I thought about waiting until I got my corrected book but what's the difference, right? Either way it will turn out that same, just a different number.

I decided to go with Mixbook because they were  the one place I could find that offered a 4x6 softcover book like this and it was pretty cheap. So I decided to go with it.

Uploading my photos and arranging my book on their website was super easy. It probably took me about 20-30 minutes. It took about one week to receive my book once I ordered it.

Here's the finished product.
Book made with Magical Christmas by Jady Day Studio & Flergs.


You can see a tiny white edge. When I reviewed the book online I did not see that. It's on a couple of the pages.

The green color looks a little bright here but in real life it actually looks just like the paper I used in the digital scrapbook kit. My photo editing skills still need some work.


I would say that the overall quality is what I was expecting for $6.99. While it may not last for generations to come it should last a good while and I'll keep the .jpg images of my book so that I can print it out again if I want to.

Well, that's my 2011, oh I mean 2012 December Daily Album!!! Guess I'm a whole year ahead of schedule.

LOL! That looks like something I would do! Oh well, easily fixed. I love your printed book and I think it looks great even with the wrong date!

I LOVE it! It's a gorgeous keepsake, and a priceless mistake. I would definitely keep it- or maybe just print another one and keep them together. Thanks for the inspiration. I plan on doing something similar.

Happy 2013!;)

I spelled my own name wrong on our christmas car, and forgot the paragraph about my 2nd son in our christmas letter :)

So glad I'm not the only one who makes mistakes like this!
