Document December – Day 1 "Real Life"

Hey Scrap Bosses!

I am back with the first spread in my Document December 2019 project. This is one of my favorite projects of the year and I am so glad to share it with you!

December 2019 has proven to be quite challenging, so I am starting this project a little later than I planned. But that’s okay…this is not a sprint and I fully intend on taking my time as I document my December adventures and everything in between.

To see the process video for Day 1, click on the video below. Also, be sure to check out my Document December 2019 YouTube playlist if you are interested in seeing a full review of the products I am using for this project. Photos of this spread are posted below.

Enjoy!

Advent Calendar for a 6 x 8 Layout…Say Whaaaat?! New Scrapbook.com Digital Cut File

Hey friends! I have something really cool to share with you! Scrapbook.com released a new digital cut file bundle called Advent Tree. This cut file is perfect for making custom advent calendars for any project – 12 x 12, 8.5 x 11, and 6 x 8 scrapbook layouts, travelers notebook spreads, cards, and more!

Full Disclosure: I am usually very intimidated by digital cut files like the Advent Tree cut file. Upon first glance, I thought that the process of figuring out how to make this cut file work for a 6×8 spread would be difficult.

Once I figured out my color scheme and overall design, I took the plunge and created an advent calendar for my 6 x 8 Document December album. This was so much fun to make!

Available at www.scrapbook.com.

Two tree layers are included with this cut file bundle – one with a sold tree outline, the other with door openings. The Advent Tree bundle also comes with a set of numbers (1-24), that can be cut and used to number the small doors. I alternated the numbers with small embellishments from my holiday scrapbooking stash.

Inside the small openings, I used a holiday stamp set from Hero Arts that featured tiny Christmas themed icons and phrases.

I am so happy with how this spread turned out! And no worries! I am filming a short tutorial for the Victoria Marie YouTube channel featuring this cut file, so stay tuned!

Document December Prep – What I’m Using and How I am Organizing My Goodies!

The holidays are upon us and like many of you, I am starting to prepare for holiday scrapbooking and storytelling! This year, I am excited to be a Document December guest designer for Elle’s Studio!

The Document December Kit and add ons are amazing! This kit features a variety of elements to include 3×4 and 4×6 pocket cards, die cuts, acrylic embellishments, and puffy stickers.

There are additional stamp sets, pocket cards, and other products that are sold separately and coordinate with the kit. To learn more, click on the product links at the end of the blog post.

In previous years, I have used Ali Edward’s December Daily products and project format. Though I am using the Elle’s Studio Document December products, I am sticking to the December Daily format – documenting daily stories throughout the month of December. I will talk more about my approach to this project in an upcoming video and blog!

To see an overview of the products I am using and how I am organizing my goodies, click on the video below!

Be sure to visit the Elle’s Studio website for more details and to purchase available products. The kit and add ons are going fast so don’t wait!

6×8 Album – SNAP by Simple Stories

The Elle’s Studio Document December Kit is designed to be used with a variety of scrapbook designs – 6×8, 12×12, traveler’s notebook, etc. This year I am using a SNAP by Simple Stories 6×8 album that I purchased from Scrapbook.com.

Inside of the album – WOW!

All of my supplies are organized in a wood container that I bought at Michaels in 2018. I added small metal bins to organize my embellishments, pocket cards, and fibers.

Below are some add on items that coordinate with the Document December Kit. Most of these items are sold separately.

Puffy Alphas
Puffy Stickeres
Label Stickers
Letter Stickers
Stamp Sets

In addition to the Elle’s Studio products, I added items from my stash to include tags, a roller date stamp, twine, and mini envelopes.

Items from my stash

As December draws near, I will add more items to my Document December project supplies, but for now, this is a good start!

Stay tuned for more Document December videos to come. Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Process Video | Loves to Dance

Hey Scrap Bosses!

Here’s a new scrapbook process video for your viewing pleasure! This layout features the Rebekah Kit by Felicity Jane.

To see this spread come together, click on the video below. Links to available products used in this video are posted below as well.

To be honest, I have a ton of unused Felicity Jane kits in my stash! And recently I found my Rebekah Kit, tucked away and out of sight. Upon unearthing this beautiful kit, I knew immediately that I wanted to scrapbook these photos of my daughter on her first day of ballet class.

It’s been four years since she last took a dance class and she was so extremely excited to start! I took dance classes as a young girl and I am excited to share my love of dance with my daughter.

Using pattern paper and heavy white card stock, I created a simple background. Two 4×6 photos were centered to the top of the layout, along with a velum pocket from the kit. Initially, my plan was to tuck hidden journaling in the pocket, but I forgot and added journaling lines instead.

Oops! Happy mistake!

I created a tag using a piece of woodgrain pattern paper from the kit and a We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board and Reinforcer Hole Punch.

Next, I created clusters of embellishments using the Rebekah die cuts and velum hearts. I added stamped elements from the Rebekah stamp set, along with images from older Felicity Jane stamps – Jeana, Chloe, and Jaimee.

The muted colors worked perfectly for this layout – clean, simple, and elegant. I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful. Thanks for stopping by !

Scrapbook Process Video | Favorite Girl

Hey Scrap Bosses!

Time for another fun scrapbook process video! This video features an 8.5 x 11 layout called Favorite Girl. Lately, I have been documenting a lot about my daughter Corinne’s growth and development, her changing preferences, and the fact that she is slowing entering into the preteen years.

Le sigh. Where did the time go?

I love taking the time to curate a collection of stories that captures every milestone and discovery of my little girl. The process is exciting and sad all at the same time.

To see how this layout comes together, click on the video below.

I started this layout be layering coordinating pattern papers from the Home + Made by Jen Hadfield 12 x 12 paper pad. I love the combination of the navy blue and cream strip paper with the yellow and pink pattern papers.

I created small clusters of embellishments using chipboard stickers (Jen Hadfield Home + Made Collection) and foiled puffy stars (Gossamer Blue).

To create an interesting title, I like to use more than one font style (Thickers “Wildflower”).

Because the pattern paper does most of the work on this layout, I kept the embellishing simple.

I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!
