Document December 2022 Inspiration: Week 05

Welcome to our final Document December 2022 Inspiration post! We hope that you have loved documenting your merriest memories this month using our December 2022 kit and add-ons, and have enjoyed seeing how our design team members have created with these products, too. In case you needed one final push to continue working, or wrap up your album, check out these new spreads below!

Diane Dziuban

Diane documented her wrapping paper and pretty tree from the 10th of December using her Document December 2022 Kit and Tiny Christmas Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers and Dark Green Jane Tile Cardstock Alphabet Stickers! Her large photo makes us want to pull out our wrapping paper rolls again!

Junell Kruzel

Junell’s fun family photo is paired with bold patterns on the right from our Twinkle Paper Stack. We thought that her Christmas Day checklist created with ornament stamps from our Christmas Tabs Vol. 2 Stamp was just wonderful, too!

Michelle Flynn

We know that Michelle loves a monochromatic project, and this one in classic red and white is just stunning! We love Michelle’s add-on tag to slip in between her pages using the Attacher Metal Die and her flip-up “Ho, Ho, Ho!” tag!

Wei Wei’s fun spread is graphic and colorful with large icons on the right and a large photo on the left, all accented with patterns from our Twinkle Paper Stack!

Wei Wei Wang

Jennifer McMurtrey

Jennifer’s Christmas morning was documented in such a great way, and we love her shaker page created with the Twinkle Paper Stack, Red and Dark Green Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Red Foil Vellum Numbers and Tiny Christmas Hearts and Stars Puffy Stickers! It’s the perfect page to highlight the start of the day in her album.

Kat Benjamin

Kat documented Christmas Day with numbered journaling and photos, using our White and Dark Green Jane Tile Cardstock Alphabet Stickers and other products from our Document December 2022 Kit. How awesome is it that she incorporated her daughter’s wrapping paper into the spread, too?

Marsha Farris

Have you included yourself in your Document December album? Marsha did, and we love the way she recorded her excitement for a gift using our In The Mail and Christmas Phrases Stamps! What a beautiful spread, and a great reminder to include YOUR joy into this project, too!

Melissa Mann

How fun is this spread that Melissa created? A surprise sighting of Mr. Grinch himself prompted her to stamp a page full of lyrics on the right using our Parker Alphabet Stamp in the perfect color scheme. What a fantastic idea!

Sarah Kee

Sarah’s pretty spread is true to her style with lots of white space on the left, featuring circles cut from our Twinkle Paper Stack and stamped with the Fa La La Stamp, accented with ‘Tis the Season Chipboard Stickers and Red Foil Vellum Numbers. What a fantastic design!

Suzanna Lee

Did you remember to take photographs during your Christmas Eve traditions? Suzanna did, and she documented them here with a fun flip-out detail using the Document December 2022 Kit and add-ons like the ‘Tis the Season Chipboard Stickers, Christmas Phrases Stamp and Fa La La Stamp.

We hope that these projects, and all of our other Document December Inspiration posts this month have kept you going to complete your album. If you’re not there yet, take it one day at a time until you wrap up your album, so that you’ll have the merry and bright memories documented to cherish for years to come!

2022 Month-by-Month with Kat Benjamin

Good morning, friends! It’s Kat here and let me say—I CANNOT believe that 2022 is almost over.  I find myself saying this every year, but the year went by so quickly. I feel like time just keeps speeding up. This is one of the main reasons why I document my family’s memories. I love looking back at our experiences.

When my daughter was one, I began taking a monthly photo of her around the first of each month.  I’ve had so much fun with this and will continue to do it for as long as she is willing to participate. It’s so fun to see how much she changes throughout a year. I decided to take all the monthly photos from 2022 and consolidate them into a fun wrap-up.

Supplies | December 2022 Kit, 2023 Month Die Cuts, Icon Label Cardstock Stickers, Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers – Black, Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers – Fuchsia, Mini Dated Stamp

Because I was putting 12 photos on my layout, I kept my design simple. I went with a basic grid design and added a 2023 Month Die Cut to each photo, as well as a Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Sticker number to further highlight the month. 

I also highlighted a few months with the Icon Label Cardstock Stickers.

Along the bottom of my layout, I added a ripped strip of paper where I used the Mini Dated Stamp to stamp “2022” all over in different colors. I also added my title using the Black Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers.

This layout came together so quickly and I love that I have a page that shows my girl’s growth over the year.  

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year, and make sure to tag us on social in your memory documenting adventures using the #EllesStudio hashtag!

Memory Planner Inspiration with Melissa Mann

Hello, friends! This is Melissa with you here in this last week of December to share a spread in my memory planner. In full transparency, I’m filling in some spots in my planner and this spread is actually from January 2022. However, I found it super easy to use the December kit and add-ons to create this spread in my planner.

Supplies | December 2022 KitLet it Snow Die Cuts, Matte Silver Heart and Star Cardstock Stickers, White and Dark Green Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Snow Much Fun Stamp, December Grid Stamp, Noted Vol. 2 Stamp

The week I was documenting in my planner, I was recovering from Covid19 and it was the week of my niece’s fourth birthday. I knew I wanted to use the 3 x 4-inch “Currently” journaling tag from the December 2022 Kit to capture what the week was like while I was home recovering. I typed in my answers on the journaling tag and pasted that directly onto the right-hand side.

I used the Noted Vol. 2 Stamp quite a bit to create my journaling lines. This the best stamp set for creating blocks of space to hold journaling or embellishments. 

The Let it Snow Die Cuts were perfect for adding extra embellishment to the photos of the things that kept me warm and cozy this month!

I hope you have all had a great holiday season! Make sure to use up those last bits of your December kit and add-ons before a new month begins! Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek at my project!

Holiday Magic with Kim Chaffin

Hello, friends, and happy holidays! It’s Kim Chaffin here. This is my last time on the blog as part of the Elle’s Studio design team, and I want to take this opportunity to say what an honor it has been to create together with you! I have loved showcasing such fun and beautiful products. Let’s take a look at what I’ve made using the December 2022 Kit and extras.

Supplies | December 2022 KitLet it Snow Die Cuts, In The Mail Stamp

I’ve created a layout to summarize our family’s holiday experiences that occurred in November. I made a grid of eight photos on a 10 x 8-inch page by sizing them each at 2.5 x 4-inches. The facing page features one large 10 x 8-inch photo. 

I love to make a fun title that really makes an impact by embellishing digital words. Here I used a Let it Snow Die Cut snowflake and the “Favorite Time of Year” banner die cut from the December 2022 Kit.

It’s easy to create unity within a layout by repeating elements. I’ve included a banner and snowflake on the facing page for that purpose. The phrase “arrived just in time” from the In The Mail Stamp provided exactly the sentiment I wanted to express my readiness for the holiday season. 

A journaling block was created by adhering a strip cut from a coordinating December Kit pocket tag to the top of my printed words. I rounded the two left corners and placed the right side flush with the right side of my large photograph. 

As I’m placing my embellishments, I often adhere them using pop dots to add dimension. I love the way this layout creates a wrap-up of November festivities. I’ve loved creating with you here, and I look forward to continuing our creative paths together in the future!

Document December 2022 Inspiration: Week 04

We hope that you had a very Merry Christmas, and if you have a lot of memories, and photos! to document, let our talented design team inspire you to get Christmas in your album using your December 2022 kit and add-ons!

Junell Kruzel

Do you collect Christmas books like Junell? We love the way that she recorded her newest additions to her shelf using some of our favorite stamps, like the Lizzy Alphabet and Christmas Phrases Stamp!

Suzanna Lee

The holidays are all about spending time together, and we love the way that Suzanna recorded her family being together again with our Document December products with the ‘Tis the Season Chipboard Stickers and Red Foil Vellum Numbers on this interactive pocket page.

Wei Wei Wang

What a fun spread that Wei Wei created! She used the Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp with the Snow Much Fun Stamp to create a custom background for her photo on the left, then created a fun design on the right using our Twinkle Paper Stack and December Grid Stamp. What a great way to use that label paper!

Sarah Kee

Have you been as busy as Sarah this holiday season? She documented the projects that she has been working on in this fun spread using the December Grid Stamp and Christmas Die Cut Tags! We love the flip-out on the left and the fun way that Sarah used tags on the right!

Michelle Flynn

A colorful tree created this perfect festive page from Michelle, created with our Document December 2022 Kit. What a fun memory from a toddler project to get into your album!

Kat Benjamin

Kat’s photo-focused spread included the date with our Red Foil Vellum Numbers on her full-size photo in a perfect way, and we love the scattering of embellishments that Kat added across the spread using our puffy stickers!

Diane Dziuban

Special ornaments deserve a place in your album, and we love the way that Diane created this interactive page to record the importance of her favorites on this spread using our Twinkle Paper Stack and Six Pop-Up Frames Metal Die. We also love how Diane added the date using the White Cardstock Stencil Number Banner Die Cuts.

Marsha Farris

Do you record the wrapping paper that you use? We love the way that Marsha did that on this spread using the Red Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp, and our Christmas Tabs Vol. 2 Stamp. Marsha’s page is also a great reminder to get yourself in the photo, taking part in holiday tasks, too!

Jen McMurtrey

Jennifer’s holiday decor is certainly worth checking out, and her double-page spread with additional flips here shows it off perfectly! Jen created a custom filler tag using our Fa La La Stamp and Twinkle Paper Stack that she topped with a pretty red ribbon. We also love that she used the Attacher Metal Die to get more photos into this spread.

Melissa Mann

Just like Diane, Melissa also recorded some of her favorite ornaments, and we love that she shared each one in a separate pocket on her spread! She embellished her photos with the ‘Tis the Season Chipboard Stickers along with stickers from the December 2022 Kit, and also added a fun, vellum pocket with a pull-out tag to hold her journaling.

We hope these projects have given you the push you need to finish off your album, whether you finish on the 25th, or go all of the way to the end of the month. Stay tuned for one more edition of this festive post next week, as our team finishes it off in a beautiful way!

Merry Christmas from all of us at Elle’s Studio!

We want to wish you a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Elle’s Studio! We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season celebrating the most magical time of the year!

In the Mail with Sarah Kee

Hello, Elle’s friends. It’s me, Sarah, hosting today’s blog post, and I’m excited to show you how to get extra use out of the In The Mail Stamp.

Here’s what I came up with:

Supplies | December 2022 KitLet it Snow Die Cuts, Matte Silver Heart and Star Cardstock Stickers, In The Mail Stamp, Twinkle Paper Stack

I wanted to document how I always take some time every December to send out our family Christmas cards. As a matter of fact, I always dedicate a full page about it in my Document December book. The In The Mail Stamp worked perfectly for this traveler’s notebook-sized spread. 

I started by creating a colorful border to the left of my page using coordinating ink colors.

To document the story behind our family Christmas cards, I typed up the journaling and added it to the right side of the spread.

I also created a title below the journaling by layering some of the stamps from the In The Mail Stamp.

That’s all I have for today!

So what’d you think of the In The Mail Stamp in action? We’d love to see how you use your stamps on your projects! Join us, and please do share your projects with all of us at our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group or on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio.

And as always, thanks for letting me share my work with all of you!
