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 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.
