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!
