Elle's Studio Exclusive December Kit and Limited Edition Holiday Wood Veneers

…are on sale now! This month is packed with all kinds of paper crafting delights just in time for the holiday season; it is perfect for stocking stuffers, gifts under the tree (the tags in the kit are adorable for gift wrapping), and of course to Celebrate December and document it daily in your December Daily albums!

Here is December's fabulous kit:

I used the kit to not only create a PL spread, but also a mini album made with those adorable photo #hashtag tags, a gift tag, and a card! And, I still have a bunch left over to add to my December Daily!

Weather has not been cooperating lighting wise-so a few of these pics are definitely not optimum, but you get the idea. 

These photos are a collection of pics taken over several holiday seasons and are just little snippets of life documented daily in December; traditions, memories, favorite gifts, recipes, etc.

The card I made with little tags from the kit along with some jute, a Silhouette snowflake cut and a holiday flair/badge from Evalicious (I believe).

And my PL spread which features several of the tags from the kit as well as from the Noel collection:
The orange and blue cute graphics are from a Discover Card mailer that I simply cut to size and added some October Afternoon Daily Flash washi tape to. 

For this tag from the December kit, I simply stamped using the Noel Cheers stamp set ("To: Love:") available in the Elle's Studio shop, adhered a wood veneer snowflake from the limited edition holiday wood veneer sets, and added some jute/hemp. 
I love the simplicity and look of this tag with it's woodgrain accents and that it complemented my Christmas paper and woodland Christmas tree so nicely! :) :)

And then I created several cards, the first of which was super simple and fun to make. (*I ended up adding three wood veneer stars down the left side of the card as an afterthought and at night, so they are not shown here because the lighting was poor). I enjoyed using the Saltwater Confetti paper in a holiday themed way. Super fun to mix it up that way and stretch the various patterned paper collections.

 For this card, I cut out a few triangles and backed them with more patterned paper and then stitched around the perimeter. Then I misted the wood veneer stars with Gold Heidi Swapp Shine and the whole card with Mr. Huey Classic White.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the star and then back it with more patterned paper for dimension.
A little bit of stitching around the sentiments, some, star sequins, and a few pop dots to add dimension. Done!

And...I have nearly finished yet another project using these exclusive die cuts too! I will post it a bit later this week.

Thanks for hanging in there for this lengthy post! I am sad to say my Design Team term has come to an end with Elle's Studio! It has been such a pleasure designing for Elle and I feel so blessed to have been asked to design with her products! Thank you so much Elle! xo

**Just a note that the kit is on sale for a limited time for $9.99. The price goes up after midnight PST tonight to $11.99. The early bird definitely gets the discount worm, so shop early for the best deals and savings!! ;)

Happy Tuesday all!

  1. This was my first visit to your blog, and I. Am. In. LOVE! Beautiful work, and so very clever! Love the cross made from the wood veneer banners, and the cut out triangles with wood stars that magically turned that patterned paper into a forest. :) Also, two thumbs up for using junk mail--totally cute and I heart recycling.


Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate and read everyone of the comments you leave here. :)
