Christmas with Elle’s Studio – Pt.1 | Jackie Ashton
Hi crafter, Jackie here with my first blogpost for December using the lovely Elle’s Studio Christmas collection.
I must confess that I really lovely Christmas, I love it all, the decorations, seeing the lights and all the fantastic decorations around this time of year. I know that this year will be different, but I’m still planning on making it as jolly as possible and enjoying it the best I can.
Elle’s Studio products are lovely to work with and getting my photographs scrapped from past years just makes it more enjoyable.
I’ve kept both of my layout very simple.
It’s a Wrap …
Each year me and James have a little Christmas and Birthday photoshoot in our garden, so after taking some Christmas photos we threw our hats down to take some birthday ones and when I looked they were perfectly placed on one of the tubs – like Santa had said he’s finished for the season.
So I started the layout by using a 4.5 x 8 inch piece of patterned paper and added it to the middle of my cardstock, and then added a banner piece to either side.
I added some journalling to one of the Daily December tags, and added the tag to the right side of my photograph – adding 3D foam under both my photograph and journalling card to add some dimension.
Using Elle’s Studio – Holiday Seal stamps, I added these images to the bottom of the page.
For the title I used the red dipped alphabet stickers.
For my 2nd layout, I did use a metal die for this, but the layout can be done without the die. Each patterned measures approximately 8 x 3 inches, and as the patterned paper in this collection are single sided I added a corresponding patterned paper to the insides of 3 of the matts. And added a tab details to the other matts.
After I decided which photographs I wanted to use, I then added an aperture to 3 of the matts, so that I could add my photographs underneath.
I then arrange my matts on my cardstock.
I stamped direct onto the patterned paper using Elle’s Studio Grateful stamp set and added a wood veneer phase.
I love this fun collection, its so easy to work with.
Don’t forget to share your layouts over on our Facebook group we would love to see them.
Till next time
