CelebrateDecember2014Welcome 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 visit Elle’s Studio everyday for prizes, giveaways, and inspiration!

Today Christine Newman is sharing a festive layout and card with us!

Christine shares, “One of my favorite holiday movies is “Elf”. My husband Todd and I have watched it every year for a long time. A few years ago, we decided to have an “Elf” movie watching party at our house with our friends. It has become an annual tradition that we all look forward to!

I used a lot of papers, wood veneers, stamps, alpha stickers, and diecuts from the Good Cheer collection. Love this festive collection with awesome patterns & colors to scrap the holidays! I used a lot of alpha stickers and cut-out words to spell out one of my favorite quotes from the movie.

I also used the red alpha stickers for my title, right above the photo. I laid out my alphas on vellum, then I stapled the title onto the vellum backing my photo. Those Good Cheer wood veneers were perfect for the middle of the cut-out snowflakes!

I cut out a couple of tags using the Holiday Tags Digital Cut Files. The “Fa la la la la” from the Good Cheer – North Pole Stamp set was totally perfect for my theme.

Next I made a simple card I from Good Cheer Wood Veneers, Bits & Pieces, and the November 2014 kit. Elle’s journal cards and tags make holiday card-making super-easy!


I loved creating with the wonderful Good Cheer collection and the holiday-themed November kit! The exclusive stamp sets are all amazing too! Documenting holiday traditions is one of my favorite things to do, and Elle’s Studio goodies made it easy and fun! Thank you so much for having me for this year’s Celebrate December!”
