A Document December Kit Layout with Jen Chapin

Hi everyone! It’s Jen here, and today I am sharing a quick layout I created with the Document December 2017 Kit. I love the mixture of paper, journaling tags and embellishment included in this kit—it really is perfect for any kind of holiday documentation you could choose.
 

 
Supplies | Document December Kit, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
I had some photos from last year that I wanted to scrapbook, and I decided to print them at 3″ x 4″ so that I could easily pair them with journaling tags from the kit.
 

 
I arranged my photos in a three-photo by two-photo grid, then added a few journaling tags to the page. I did some quick handwritten journaling, then added some wood veneer stars and other stickers to the page.
 

 
I placed the title directly on top of my grid, using the beautiful puffy stickers from the kit, as well as a chipboard tree and large wood veneer star. In just a few minutes I created a cute layout, which was simple and easy with this great kit!
 
I hope you and yours have a very merry holiday season. Have a great week!

Documenting Time with Daniela Dobson

Our newest stamp, the Time Stamp, records any important time that you want to document on your project, and it coordinates with two other popular stamp sets in our shop—Dated and Days of the Week Stamp! Today, Daniela Dobson is with is to share a layout that uses all three to document a weekly occurrence in her household! Let’s see what she made. 
 
Welcome to the Elle’s Studio blog today! It’s Daniela here, highlighting the brand new Time Stamp, along with the Dated and Days of the Week Stamps—which coordinate so perfectly!

I started by layering tags, patterned paper and stamping on the left side of the page. I used Time, Dated and Days of the Week Stamps by documenting the time and days my son has basketball practice, using black ink for all my stamping. I added a star from the Holiday Plans Stamp between the 2017/2018 years, stamped with the Dated Stamp.
 

 
For the title, I used the Winter Wood Veneer Words and red letter stickers from the Document December Kit.
 

 
To finish the page, I added strips of washi from my stash and scattered Twinkle Puffy Stickers and Little Acrylic Stars across the page.

Creating Texture with Melissa Mann

There are many ways to create texture on your layout, and today Melissa Mann is sharing how she used product from our newest exclusive kit and Family Fun collection to create a fun, dimensional page. Let’s take a look!
 
Good morning! This is Melissa with you and I’m sharing a new project I created using the December 2017 Kit and add-ons!
 

 
Supplies | December 2017 Kit, December 2017 Labels, Hello Winter Chipboard, Twinkle Puffy Stickers, First Things First Stamp, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
One of the things I love most about the Elle’s Studio monthly kits is that even if they are partially themed for a certain holiday or moment, you can still create everyday layouts or cards with them. The kits are chock full of goodies that can be used for capturing the everyday moments of life. While this month was filled with themed items for Christmas and the New Year, I was still able to create a project that was not holiday themed in the least!
 

 
I love layers and texture in my projects and I created a ton of that with some super-duper distressing of the pattern paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection that is found at the top and bottom of my layout.
 

 
I had a lot of fun layering strips of pattern paper and stitching it down, wrinkling it up, tearing it up, and I only broke one needle on my sewing machine during the process! Don’t be afraid to “rough” up your projects – I love doing this with paper that is two sided, because you get even more “layers”!
 
Thanks for stopping by this morning and taking a peek!

One Product, Three Ways: Monthly Puffy Stickers

With all of the new product in the shop this month, it was hard to choose just one for our One Product, Three Ways, but with a new year looming, we wanted to highlight the versatile Monthly Puffy Stickers. Today Candace, Maggie and Meghann are showing us three fabulous projects you can create using these awesome stickers. Let’s take a look.
 

 
Supplies | December 2017 KitMonthly Puffy Stickers, Monthly Wood Veneer Tabs, Monthly Journaling Tags, Twinkle Puffy StickersWinter Chipboard, Wood Veneer Clips
 
Candace | I chose to use the fun Monthly Puffy Stickers to create a desktop calendar to easily document the fun highlights of 2018! To create transparency, I layered the stickers over vellum so the calendar behind could still be seen.
 

 
To add a little more color to the flip calendar I added various pieces of chipboard, stickers and wood veneers.
 
To create a place to add journaling or photos each month to highlight our special family moments and memories, I cut down the Monthly Journaling Tags to fit into the desktop calendar and give me space just for this!
 

 
Supplies | December 2017 KitMonthly Puffy StickersWinter Chipboard, Winter Wood Veneer Words, Time Stamp
 
Maggie | I used the Monthly Puffy Stickers to help highlight my new projects for each month in 2018. I used some bright, beautiful Sharpies to color them, and then I got to work setting up my Goal Tracker. I’m all for keeping things really simple (I find that it helps me stay on course), so all I did to prepare my pages was add the month, spaces for my 3 biggest goals, and a few blank pages to jot down how I’m doing. 
 

 
I’ve already got my January projects written down. Who knows? Maybe I’ll even get a jump start on them in the next few weeks! Thanks so much for taking a look.
 
Meghann | I used a Sharpie product, just like Maggie, but I chose to color the Monthly Puffy Stickers with a Sharpie oil-based gold paint pen. By using a neutral metallic hue, I can standardize 4″ x 6″ month markers for all of my monthly pocket page spreads in 2018! 
 
Next, I opened the Love This Printables digital file, and chose the buffalo check 3″ x 4″ tag. I resized it to 4″ x 6″ in Photoshop Elements, then desaturated the color 100% to give me a beautiful gray—a great neutral to use throughout the year that should work for any spread that I create.
 

 
Supplies | Love This PrintablesMonthly Puffy Stickers, Title Builder Stamp
 
I printed twelve total 4″ x 6″ tags—three per page on a heavy-duty smooth, white cardstock. Before adhering my gold metallic Monthly Puffy Stickers on the right side above the pattern, I stamped “hello” and ” documenting” on the left in gray ink using the versatile Title Builder Stamp. Since January kicks off a new year, I also added “2018” to my first tag. I can’t wait to use these in my 2018 pocket page documentation!
 
Did you add the Monthly Puffy Stickers to your basket this month? We can’t wait to see how you use them in your memory-keeping and documentation! Be sure to post on Instagram and use the hashtag #EllesStudio so that we can take a look!
