Celebrate December with Elle’s Studio


For the whole month of December, Elle’s Studio blog is having a “Celebrate December” event.  Every day there are new projects on their blog created by the Celebrate December guests, as well as chances to win awesome prizes!

I’m honored that Jenni and Elle invited me to take part in this wonderful Celebrate December event.  My first layout was on their blog this past Thursday, using the sketch they provided. 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.


Supplies:  Good Cheer collection, Christmas Ephemera Pack, Letters & Numbers Stickers – Red, Merry & Bright Exclusive Stamp, Warmest Wishes Exclusive Stamp, November Digital Cut Files.

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.


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.


I love how this page came together, and the magical feel of the Good Cheer collection!


My second layout and a holiday card was featured on the Elle’s Studio blog on Saturday.  You all know that one of my favorite holiday movies is “Elf”. Todd and I have watched it every year for a long time. A few years ago, we decided to have an “Elf” movie watching party at our house with our friends. It has become an annual tradition that we all look forward to!


Supplies:  Good Cheer collection, November 2014 Kit, Holiday Tags Digital Cut File, Letters & Numbers Stickers – Red, Letters & Numbers Stickers – White, November Digital Cut File.

I used a lot of papers, wood veneers, stamps, alpha stickers, and diecuts from the Good Cheer collection. Love this festive collection with awesome patterns & colors to scrap the holidays! I used a lot of alpha stickers and cut-out words to spell out one of my favorite quotes from the movie.


I also used the red alpha stickers for my title, right above the photo. I laid out my alphas on vellum, then I stapled the title onto the vellum backing my photo. Those Good Cheer wood veneers were perfect for the middle of the cut-out snowflakes!


I cut out a couple of tags using the Holiday Tags Digital Cut Files. The “Fa la la la la” from the Good Cheer – North Pole Stamp set was totally perfect for my theme.



Next I made a simple card I from Good Cheer Wood Veneers, Bits & Pieces, and the November 2014 kit. Elle’s journal cards and tags make holiday card-making super-easy!


I loved creating with the wonderful Good Cheer collection and the holiday-themed November kit! The exclusive stamp sets are all amazing too! Documenting holiday traditions is one of my favorite things to do, and Elle’s Studio goodies made it easy and fun!
