Celebrate December with Jenni Hufford

Welcome to Celebrate December at Elle’s Studio!  The month of December will be packed with holiday inspiration, projects, layouts, and gift ideas from many talented designers.  Be sure to check the Elle’s Studio blog everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today we have Jenni Hufford joining us with a fun December over-view layout.  Jenni currently serves as a blog contributor for Project Life at Elle’s Studio and was on our Design Team in 2010.  Thank you Jenni for joining us for Celebrate December.

One of my favorite pieces from the Be Merry collection is the Be Merry Number Cutouts.    I was inspired to use this cutout as the foundation for December “over-view” layout.

To create this layout, I printed various wallet sized photos and mini sized photos (from Mpix.com) from our favorite December moments in 2011.   I then cropped the photos to fit different spaces within the Be Merry Number Cutout.

One thing I kept in mind while making this layout was to not be so worried about having the actual date match the number (shh! don’t tell).  Looking back, that is NOT what will matter most to me (matching the date with the photo)– it’s sharing the moments and story that is most important.  

If you are not doing a December Daily, this would be a great alternative to document the month of December and all the wonderful events and memories it brings!

    Love your reflection that it’s not about the date matching the photo. Why do we let ourselves get hung up on the little details and never get going. Beautiful pages. Love the baby Jesus!
