happy little trees_1

Jen shares, “I was immediately drawn to the Star of Wonder patterned paper, side B. I loved the natural look of the wood and thought it would be the perfect background for my photo. I started by adding some scrapes of white acrylic paint to ground my photo and embellishments. I also used a triangle stencil with my paint to add a graphic, directional element. Keeping with the wood and tree theme, I used lots of wooden embellishments.

happy little trees_2

I built my photo and embellishments around my painted area, intentionally using tags and elements that conveyed the happy, merry feeling I had about my new favorite Christmas decorations.

Supplies used: Merry tag; Star of Wonder patterned paper; 3×4 card from Magical patterned paper; Good cheer bits and pieces, Christmas ephemera pack; November 2014 limited edition kit tags and embellishments.

CELEBRATE DECEMBER WITH CHRISTINE NEWMAN AND MELISSA MANN

CelebrateDecember2014

Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

For sketch Thursday we have two talented designers sharing layouts with us, Christine Newman and Melissa Mann.

Take a look at our sketch for today:

Image 3

Christine shares, “Triangles are one of my favorite shapes right now. I decided to use one of my favorite papers from Good Cheer, “Holiday Quilt”, because the patterns naturally form triangles. This page documents another one of our favorite Christmas traditions, affectionately called “Christmas On the Beach”. Ever since we moved to San Diego 15 years ago, we have spent all but one Christmas at the beach.

ES_ChristineNewman_GoodCheer (1)

I sewed the top triangle onto the page and used the pine sprig from the Merry & Bright Exclusive Stamp set to create a top and bottom border for the page. I also stamped a few snowflakes from Warmest Wishes Exclusive Stamp set and glued some sequins to the middle of the snowflakes. I love how they look on the page.

ES_ChristineNewman_GoodCheer (2)

I used a square photo that fit into the polaroid frame from Good Cheer Bits & Pieces. Then I propped up the photo on foam adhesive so it stands out on the page.

ES_ChristineNewman_GoodCheer (3)

I love how this page came together, and the magical feel of the Good Cheer collection!”ES_ChristineNewman_GoodCheer (4)

Next we have a beautiful layout by Melissa Mann to share using the same sketch.

CelebrateDecember_MelissaMann1I love that even using the same sketch, and the same product, she came up with a totally different look.  Her bright colors and touch of gold is just stunning!

CELEBRATE DECEMBER WITH TRACY ARMSTRONG

CelebrateDecember2014

Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Tracy Armstrong joining us and sharing a fun holiday themed spread in her pocket style album!

Don’t you just love Christmas time? For me it’s all about cozy nights, warm sweaters, hot chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon, rain boots – hey, I do live in Vancouver after all, and of course spending time with family!

tracy.ellesstudio.02

Today I’m going to share a pocket scrapbook spread I created using some of Elle’s Studio’s adorable Christmas products. This past year I’ve scrapbooked in a 6×8 size and it’s been such a fun change from the 12×12 size I did back in 2013.

tracy.ellesstudio.01At the start of each month, I print out a calendar onto a piece of patterned paper. When I first saw the triangle paper from Good Cheer I knew right away that it would be the calendar paper. I loved the traditional red and green mixed with the blue, pink and grey. It totally works!tracy.ellesstudio.03

I used a couple of the journal cards that matched the colours on the left because I like to have everything flow together. The wood veneers from this collection are so, so cute. They were a great addition to the grey 3×4 card.

tracy.ellesstudio.04To add a little something extra to the spread, I created a 4×6 insert using the pie chart card from the December 2014 Kit. I thought it would be cute to break out how I’ve spent my time this year. I used Numbers Stamp to stamp 2014 over the word “day” and the I hand stitched the heart wood veneer directly onto the card.

tracy.ellesstudio.05

Have a wonderful holiday season and I hope you guys enjoyed a peek into my scrapbook! To check out more from my album, feel free to check out my blog, follow me on Instagram and follow me on Pinterest .

CELEBRATE DECEMBER WITH PAIGE EVANS

CelebrateDecember2014

Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Paige Evans joining us with and sharing TWO gorgeous layouts!

Paige says, “Every December Elle’s Studio kicks of the most wonderful time of the year with an entire month filled with festive blog content. I received an huge box full of Elle’s Studio goodies and couldn’t wait to sit down and play with it all! Here are a couple layouts I made with Elle’s Studio supplies:

Christmas 2013 by Paige Evans

CHRISTMAS 2013 by Paige Evans

Description: Goodness knows I love to be inspired by quilts :) With a square punch in hand this layout came together in a jiffy.

Journaling says: This was our first Christmas living abroad in Germany and while we were definitely homesick for our families and traditions we got to make our own family traditions like reading stories nightly and advent calendars!

Christmas 2013 Detail by Paige EvansHow to: Punch 1″ squares from all of the Christmas papers and a few die cuts then trim them into triangles. Starting in the center of a gray cardstock layout base, begin piecing the triangles in a quilt-inspired pattern. Sew over/around each paper diamond. Place a photo in the middle and embellish with a patterned transparency, die cuts, wood veneer, and more as shown. Place alphabet stickers along the side for a title then journal around that diamond with a white pen.

Supplies: Patterned paper, patterned transparency, die cuts, labels, wood veneer, stickers: Elle’s Studio; Cardstock, adhesive: American Crafts; Pen: Uniball Signo; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Square punch: Recollections

Fa La La La La by Paige Evans

FA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA by Paige Evans

Description: I found this photo from last Christmas season when we traveled to Italy and one night we met up with Stephanie Howell and her family. The colors of all our winter gear matched perfectly with these Elle’s Studio Christmas supplies!

Journaling says: The day after Christmas we drove down to Italy! One night we met up with the Howells and ate a delicious dinner. When in Rome, or rather, Vicenza!

Fa La La La La Detail by Paige Evans

How to: Watercolor across a white cardstock background and let it dry (or use a hairdryer to speed up the process). Layer die cuts, tags, sentiments, journaling spots, labels, etc, in color coordinated fashion, down the watercoloring. Die cut “fa la la la la la la la la” from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo then adhere it with pop dots over the die cuts. Tuck a photo under the title and journal on one of the tags. Place alphabet stickers on another tag. Add a few wood veneer shapes around the layout and stamp the date on a tag.

Supplies: Die cuts, journaling spots from November and December exclusive kits, labels, stickers, wood veneer, “fa la la” die cut file: Elle’s Studio; Cardstock, pen, adhesive, date stamp: American Crafts; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo; Ink: StazOn; Watercolors: Studio Calico

CELEBRATE DECEMBER WITH VALERIE BISHOP AND MEGHANN ANDREW

CelebrateDecember2014Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Valerie Bishop and Meghann Andrew sharing instructions on making Christmas tags!

Valerie Bishop has three lovely tags to share today.  She says “I love making tags – it helps me to use up my scraps and I love to layer little bits and pieces on top of each other! I like to use these on gifts to special people in my life. Most of the products I used are from the Good Cheer Collection with a few cut files from November and bits and pieces from the Christmas Ephemera kit. All of the bases are just basic red shipping tags.
067 copy (1024x840)

Valerie shares, “I kept this tag simple. I used a tag and wood veneer piece from the Christmas Ephemera kit and layered it on top of a leaf from a cut file from the October cut file collection.

055 copy (844x1024)

For this tag, I used a tag from the Good Cheer Journaling Tags as the base. I used the Good Cheer – North Pole stamp and then I cut around the edge with a craft knife to layer a snowflake (from the November Digital cut files) and a wood veneer piece also from Good Cheer under it.

061 copy (944x1024)

For the base of this tag, I used a Good Cheer – Blank Label. I swiped watercolor paint across each label, then stamped the “love joy” words from the Warmest Wishes exclusive stamp set onto each box. I used one of the Good Cheer – Bits and Pieces as the title and layered a couple of snowflakes (November cut file) with some scraps from previous projects.”

062 copy (924x1024)

Meghann Andrews has three beautiful tags to share with us,   She shares, “I love creating layouts, but every once in a while, I need to create something on a smaller scale. I usually choose to create tags, and with Christmas around the corner you can never have a shortage of cute tags to dress up an otherwise plain gift.”

The addition of teal and pink to traditional red and green colors in your Christmas décor and gift-wrap adds a whimsical touch. Here’s how this tag came together:

  1. Start with the teal snowflake card from the Good Cheer journaling tags and cut the top corners off, 15mm from the sides and 20mm from the top. Adhere the edge of a white doily to the top of the card and trim. Adhere the manufacturers strip from the Merry Christmas patterned paper to the top over the doily and trim. Punch a hole at the center.
  2. Cut out the pink and the teal labels from the Good Cheer blank labels. Adhere the teal to the pink, slightly askew. Cut a piece of teal glitter tape to fit the inside of the teal label. Adhere both to the left center of the card.
  3. Color in the North Pole stamp with water based stamping markers in pink, red and teal. Stamp onto smooth cardstock and cut out. Using dimensional adhesive, adhere to the center of the blank labels.
  4. Cover the snowflakes from the Good Cheer wood veneers with a watermark inkpad and cover with white embossing powder. Emboss with a heat gun. Adhere to the tag. Add three white enamel dots to the card.

Tag 3_ES blog

If you’re like me, you like more neutral, natural Christmas décor and gift-wrap. This card would be a lovely accent on a kraft wrapped box or bag. To create this beautiful, woodsy tag:

  1. Cut a bracketed tag shape using a thin die or digital die-cutting machine from the Star of Wonder paper. Using the Good Cheer Merry Christmas stamp, stamp ‘merrry & happy’ all over the woodgrain using a medium brown stamp pad.
  2. Cut the ‘joy’ pinked circle from the November digital cut file from textured white cardstock. Using a circle template that fits the inside of the pinked circle, poke a hole with a paper piercer at every 1/16”. In your digital die-cut software, delete the word ‘joy’ and the stars from the pinked circle and cut again from brown glitter paper. Adhere the white die-cut to the brown die-cut using dimensional adhesive, but leaving the bottom un-adhered.
  3. Cut the antlers from the November digital cut file out of the Ever After paper. Adhere with the black side up to the back of the ‘joy’ die-cut.
  4. Die-cut the evergreen branch from the Good Cheer digital cut file out of green cardstock 4 times. Cut apart, arrange in a wreath on the back of the ‘joy’ die-cut circle and adhere.
  5. Cut out the ‘create wonder’ cutout from the Good Cheer cutouts. Adhere to the base of the tag.
  6. Wrap a piece of bakers twine twice around the bottom third of the tag. Tie in a knot. Put a jingle bell on each leg and then tie in another knot to secure. Adhere the ‘joy’ die-cut to the center of the tag. Slide the baker’s twine in between the white and the brown layer on the die-cut. Adhere the bottom of the layers of your die-cut with dimensional adhesive.
  7. Put a piece of natural ribbon through the hole at the top and secure with a mini-staple. Adhere gold metal dots around the green wreath.

Tag 1_ES blogIf you’re a Christmas color purist, you don’t tend to stray from red and green. Here’s how I created this traditional tag:

  1. Cut a tag from white cardstock using a wafer-thin die or die-cutting machine. Trim 1” off the bottom and cut with a border punch. Using a gold pen, draw gold stitches 1/8” from the edges.
  2. Adhere a 2” piece of Merry Christmas patterned paper to the bottom of the white tag and round the bottom corners.
  3. Stamp the snowflakes from the Warmest Wishes stamp onto the white cardstock with a watermark stamp pad. Top with white embossing powder and emboss with a heat gun.
  4. Using the Good Cheer digital cut file, cut the hand drawn circle from the North Pole patterned paper. Adhere to the white card.
  5. Cut the Good Cheer digital cut file evergreen branch out twice from gold glitter paper. Cut apart and adhere pieces to the center of the hand drawn circle.
  6. Using a backstitch, hand stitch around the ‘joy’ die-cut from the Good Cheer Bit & Pieces pack. Using dimensional adhesive, adhere to the center of the hand drawn circle.
  7. Tie a piece of ribbon at the intersection of the white cardstock and red patterned paper. Adhere red enamel dots to the gold evergreen branches.

Celebrate December with Melissa Stinson

CelebrateDecember2014Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Melissa Stinson with us sharing a peek into her Project Life album! Here’s what Melissa has to say:
EllesStudio-DSC_0175
Even though this particular week in my Project Life album fell in November, I was able to squeeze lots of great Elle’s Studio Christmas items onto it! We always have one week right before Thanksgiving that’s filled with Christmas events we attend early, and often there are more holiday related photos on it than some of the early December weeks!

As a scrapbooker who’s going all-digital next year, I’m thrilled that Elle has started to release monthly digital files along with her kits! Though I’ll be using the PNG files from the digital items on my layouts next year, for my 2014 physical album I’ve been printing out the included PDFs.

EllesStudio-DSC_3677
A really fun way to get a different look from a printable is to try it out on different types of paper. I printed the same file out on both kraft and vellum in the photo above, and you can see how different they look! These files are also perfect for use with the Silhouette’s Print and Cut feature, though I find that I’m more likely to use them (and keep up with them!) if I simply print the sheet out and then cut just what I need by hand.

EllesStudio-DSC_3687
With so many dark photos on my pages, I wanted to keep the rest of the spread light. I used lots of neutrals, including woodgrain and gray star papers from the Good Cheer collection and a selection of journaling cards with white backgrounds from the November and December monthly kits and add-ons. Most of the color on the pages comes from the die cuts included in both those kits and the Good Cheer Tidbits package. Lots of pink, aqua, red, and green going on here!

EllesStudio-DSC_3688

The end of the year is a great time to evaluate your Project Life process and decide if you want to change anything up for the next year. In 2013 I typed almost all of my journaling, mixed round and square corners on cards and photos, and used white borders on all of my photos. For 2014 I went back to hand-writing in my album, chose to round all the corners on my photos and journaling cards, and decided that I’d leave full-pocket photos border-less while adding a bit of white around pictures that are layered on cards to help them stand out more. If you’re tired of a certain part of your process, the size of your album, or the frequency of your layouts, the start of a new year is the perfect time to do something new!

CELEBRATE DECEMBER WITH PATRICIA ROEBUCK AND DANIELA DOBSON

CelebrateDecember2014Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio! The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers. So make sure to visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Patricia Roebuck and Daniela Dobson with us sharing beautiful holiday cards!

Patricia shares “There is something so special about giving a handmade card to friends, loved ones, and people in your community.  I gave each card it’s own little personality.
Patricia_CardThe Joy card, I altered the Good Cheer Evergreen Cut File to have three strands coming down, then added swirls of gold thread.  Using the evergreen stamp from the Merry and Bright Stamp Set, I curved it along my card, which made a great place to add “Merry Christmas” from the Good Cheer- Merry Christmas Stamp Set.   Patricia_Card-2I added a little more of a homemade look to the card with the patches of pattern paper along the edges.  And warmest wishes, greets you with the beautiful woodgrain, blues, and a snowman, dotted with snowflakes stamped in brown for a cozy feel.

Patricia_Card-3

Each card has a little extra glimmer added to it with Zig Wing of Stella Brush.”

Daniela also created three beautiful cards.  She shares, “For the Merry Christmas card, I wanted to use the two cut files from the Good Cheer Digital Cut File : the circle, and the tree.  The tree I cut two times, once in white cardstock and once in glitter cardstock.  I layered them using 3D foam adhesive.

Merry Christmas by Daniela Dobson

The snowflakes from the November Digital Cut Files were perfect with these papers as I created the Warmest Wishes card.  I layered two of them, different sizes, with 3D foam adhesive.Warmest wishes by Daniela Dobson

As I was playing around and arranging elements for the Merry and Happy card, I saw a pocket for a gift card.  I trimmed one of the journaling tags, punched a circle at the top for the opening and sewed it onto a journaling tag.  It is perfect for a gift card or money.”

Merry and happy  by Daniela Dobson
