Celebrate December with Becky Novacek

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.  So, make sure to check the Elle’s Studio blog every day for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Hi Everyone!  It’s Becky Novacek posting today and I’m so excited to be a part of Elle’s Studio Celebrate December!

The layout I made is quite simple but I had a few little details I wanted to experiment with and I think they worked well!

Here’s the layout:

Isn’t the wood beeper cut-out tree awesome?  I love the way the dot paper looks backing it.  The red dot fits perfectly into the star space!
One of the things that I was visualizing for this was a little die-cut sentiment with vintage book paper backing the sentiment.  I used my Silhouette machine to cut the sentiment and used the font “Bebas Neue”.  I really like how the black background paper works as a contrast to the vintage book page.

I also knew I wanted to make a little imperfect vintage banner across the bottom.   I handout imperfect triangles and machines stitched them.

I hope you are documenting all of your holiday happenings and savoring eery minute of this magical season!

Today we are giving away a set of each of our Wood Veneers!  Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win!
