Document December Prep Party Week Two with Melissa Mann

Welcome back to our Document December Prep Party for week two! Have you started preparing for our big Document December project yet? If not, today’s post by Melissa Mann will have you itching to start! Let’s take a look at the amazing pages that Melissa has prepped!

Good morning! This is Melissa here with you again with some more prep work that I’ve done for my Document December album. I cannot believe that November is almost over and before we know it, it will be time to start filling our albums up with December memories!

One of the new products that Elle’s Studio released in the Document December products was an awesome giant oversized tag die that you can layer some cut-out words on: the Holiday Tags Metal Die. I cut my tag out on patterned paper from the Wonder Paper Stack. I cut out the word “MERRY” in the middle of the tag and then cut a second tag out using a piece of solid-colored paper from the Cool Solids Paper Stack. I layered these together and then stitched The Merriest Vellum Word Die Cut “CHRISTMAS” on top with my sewing machine. I plan on gluing a picture on the back side of the tag during the month of December. This made a fun addition to my album that isn’t a pocket page!

I also created a couple more 3 x 4 inch filler cards using other metal dies available in the shop. I used the Happy Holidays Metal Die and a piece of vellum to die cut this out, creating a see-through element in my album. 

I used one of the 3 x 4 inch Star Journaling Tags and the Holiday Shapes Metal Die to cut the star in the middle of the tag, then backed this with a patterned paper from the Wonder Paper Stack. I finished off the tag with the “joyful” Holiday Magic Gold Puffy Sticker across the top.

Another fun addition I quickly created was the 3 x 8 inch strip of patterned paper cut from the Wonder Paper Stack. I chose four of the Magical Acetate Circles from the November release and stitched them down with my sewing machine, then placed a small sticker sentiment from the Document December Kit Phrase Sticker Sheet at the bottom. I slipped this inside a 3 x 8 inch page protector. Again, on the back of this, I plan on adding a 3 x 8 inch photo in December, adding another fun and different sized element in my album. 

I hope you are having fun getting your album prepped and ready for the month of December! It will be here before we  know it!
