Joy and Wonder with the December Digital Files and Patricia Roebuck

Digital designs stretch your supplies and allow you to get creative on your projects, creating bespoke elements for any project! That’s what Patricia Roebuck is showing us today, on a new traveler’s notebook spread that she’s created to document joy and wonder from her December. Let’s take a look!

Hello and Happy New Year Elle’s Studio friends! The holidays may be over, but we still have memories to document! Today I am going to share how I used the December digital cut and printable files to make a quick entry into my traveler’s notebook, creating a title to stand out from patterned paper layers and journaling to work within my design. 

Supplies | December 2019 Cut Files, Wonderful Life Printables, Holiday Puffy Stickers, Gold Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, ‘Tis the Season 6 x 6 Paper Stack

I started by cutting out the “wonder” and “joy” words from the December 2019 Cut Files from the ‘Tis the Season 6 x 6 Paper Stack, choosing solid patterned paper colors. Next, I cut out the ampersand from the December Cut Files from more ‘Tis the Season paper, but used the negative cut to create layers with the patterns, trimming it to form a banner.  This helps the ampersand, “wonder” and “joy” words stand out more, the solid papers standing out from the patterned paper and white background.

On the right side, I cut the frame from the December 2019 Cut Files with the ‘Tis the Season 6 x 6 Paper Stack and backed it with patterned paper for the holly leaves to stand out. For the berries, I used the Gold Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers for more dimension and texture.

On the right side, I cut the frame cut file from the dotted mint pattern, then layered patterned paper and the photo under it to create a fun, layered look.

That frame grouping set the design for my journaling. The Wonderful Life Printables provide a great way to add lots of journaling in a small space, allowing me to work journaling into my design. I made one of the three labels a tad bigger than the other, and when adhering, kept to that tilting design to cascade down my page. I finished with the Holiday Puffy Stickers, tilting them as well, and the Gold Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers to finish this quick entry!

If you have not used the Elle’s Studio coordinating monthly digital elements, I hope this gives you an idea for how to incorporate them into your next project. Cutting the titles in solid colors helped to stand out against my layered patterned paper banner. The frame on the right created a great way to add more patterned paper layers along with my photo. Adding journaling to fit within my design and not taking away from it was my favorite way to use these digitals. I hope you give these ideas a try!
