December in Pockets with LeeAnne Jones

jHello, everyone! It’s LeeAnne here, with a pumpkin-spice latte in my hands but the twinkle lights and merry music of Christmas on my mind. I’m back on the blog today to show how I used the Elle’s Studio November kit and add-ons to document family life in December 2021.

The November 2022 Kit includes items that will take you smoothly from fall to winter. There are tags and die cuts with autumnal colors and sentiments, and there are Christmas-themed elements, too. I was able to create both a November and a December pocket page with one kit!

The bold, striped 4 x 6-inch journaling tag makes for a straightforward title card. I was less sure about the alpha style, but eventually settled on using minty green paper, which would tie in other elements on the page, like the naughty/nice journal tag and the frame sticker just below the title. The Medium Jane Alphabet Metal Die created an equally bold month name for the tag, and I embellished with kit die cuts and gold stickers.

Confession: An earlier iteration of this journaling tag had about a dozen gold stars added to it. It was… whoa! I had to edit myself! Haha! But I love those Matte Gold Heart and Star Stickers. There are so many in the pack—and in several sizes. And I love this tag, too: a lovely, graphic “breather” for the page design. No photo, no journaling—just mood!

Speaking of wonderful tags, this naughty/nice one was another favorite from the kit. There’s plenty of room to journal a few December memories, and the sliding scale is a fun touch. I wish I had some “naughty” kid moments to document this year, but they were pretty sweet. I used a gold star for the slider at first, but I swapped it out at the last minute for the puffy red one from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, which makes it pop a bit more.

Well, that’s it for this time! I hope this layout inspires you to document your December memories with Elle’s Studio goodies. When you do, share on Instagram with the hashtag #ellesstudio or in our Facebook group! We can’t wait to see!
