Elle's Studio December Kit and Gallery

I can't believe this is my last post for Elle's Studio.  It has been a wonderful year...Elle is so wonderful, her products are amazing, so thankful to have designed for her.

Onto a new month and a new kit!  
I love the colors in the December kit...soft, bold, and neutral.  

Here's what I did with it.  Used the Good Cheer collection with the kit.  Emma for her very first Christmas with us.  She was 17 mos.  
I used the December cut files on this as well.  Just merged the tree and Joy together with a long skinny rectangle.

And used the transparency from the kit here on the card.  I stamped with white and brown StazOn.

For my Project Life, I used a mix of the September and October kits...since I am still in Fall for my spreads.

This is one of my favorite spreads.  Why?  I think because I used smaller photos than I normally do.  I needed to conserve my photo paper, so to make the best of it, I had to print my photos on less paper.
This cork mat is sold out now, but you can still get the cut file for it here.
I included my daughter's book fair wishlist AND receipt...LOL  She had a little fun shopping.  So you can see I am a little behind, but I still got all the details in for the week.  Things like her list and receipt, I tuck into my album (I put dates on the backs of anything not dated), so when it is time to do the spread, I pull the dates for that week and decide if I will add it to my spread or just journal about it.
And then I have been using my planner...I've fallen off of it being pretty since it has been a little busy...but I write down everything going on...so I pull the week and can see what I need to add.  It is WORKING!  So glad I don't miss any little thing.

For more details of products I used and more inspiration from Design Team, head over to the Inspiration gallery...grab the kit today while it is $9.99.

Cocoa Daisy "Monterey Bay" December Kits

I LOVE how Cocoa Daisy went with a non-themed kit for December.  It is called Monterey Bay.  Take me there, please!  The colors are amazing and can be used for December memories.   Gorgeous right?!

I am doing the Document December with the Cocoa Daisy kit and class...but I did manage to do a Day in the Life spread.  I used the Main Kit and the Day in the Life kit.  This is a week in September and the kit couldn't have been more perfect for this week.  I did use the sneaker stamp from the November kit.  Had too...perfect.

I also got the floral stamp, from the design on patterned paper from September...I couldn't get enough of that flower.  The stamp is a must have!
I used it partially on two cards, and love the effect it gave.  It is also on the 4x6 card with the stamped sneakers and circles above on left side.
The acrylic houses that Cocoa Daisy did for the main kit, are so adorable!
The pineapple stamp...how perfect for these photos.  But I love pineapples too...means welcome.  This came with Day in the Life and is sold out. 
Grab the kits that are left while you can.  Have a great day.

Document December with Cocoa Daisy Kits

How has everyone been?  I am trying to keep up with everyone on Instagram, Facebook, and at Cocoa Daisy.  But I will admit that I have been a busy little elf in getting ready to teach a Document December class at Cocoa Daisy.  Videoing, write-ups, editing...and some computer dilemmas just enough to slow the process down, but I worked around it and so in love with my album, and what I will be sharing in class.

 I hope you have had a chance to pick up one of the Christmas kits Cocoa Daisy is offering. There is a Main KitAdd-On (Sold Out)Day in the Life, and a Stamp Set.

Here is a video showing you the the contents of the kits.  CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

With the purchase of a Christmas kit, you will be part of a class I will be teaching starting December 1st.  You will receive a password to enter a separate forum for discussions, daily inspiration, and the class content.  The gallery will be visible to everyone.  The class is a great way to work together and support each other with excitement, motivation, and help you have a completed album by the end of December.  Not to mention, working with fresh new, gorgeous products.  The Pink Paislee album is part of the main kit.
This year I decided to work ahead and create base pages.

Here is a video showing you my pages.  CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

And here are a few photos of the base pages.  I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed working with these kits so far.  The kits are packed.  You will have plenty to work with and make documenting December easy to put together.

And last photo to show you that the size of the Pink Paislee album was perfect to fit all of my pages.  All I have left to add are the photos and journaling, and I still have room.

Hope to see you in class and cannot wait to be inspired by everyone!

Elle's Studio November Gallery and Kit Reveal

Time for another Elle's Studio kit reveal and Inspiration Gallery!  The kits always seem to get better and better...plus I do love the holiday kits!

I used the November kit along with the Number Pennant cut files for this layout.  I love when a layout comes out how you wanted it too!

I used the kit here as well for my Project Life spread.


And then last, I did a couple of tags using the tags cut files.  
This tag uses the Christmas Ephemera kit (the wood veneer).

 This tag uses the Winter Ephemera kit (the wood veneer).  Both tags use the Warmest Wishes stamp.

Be sure to stop by Elle's Studio Inspiration Gallery for a complete list of supplies and more ideas on using the kits and new collections!
