Wrap it Up Week: with Aimee Mertell

Let’s continue Wrap it Up Week with a traditional holiday memory: cookie baking! Although we do it every year, this memory would be missed if it were not in our album, so today design team member Aimee Mertell is here to share the sweet spread that she created to record this fun holiday tradition, using one of her favorite Document December add-ons!

Hey there Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Aimee on the blog today for Wrap It Up week—a week where we are picking up past holiday projects that we may have left unfinished or filling in any blank spaces in our albums using the newest Document December release! I chose to document some cookie decorating photos from December of 2019. Let’s take a look!

I don’t know about you, but I love documenting a story each day in the month of December and giving them their own album, but it can be a big undertaking! I was looking through my 2019 album and realized I never told the story of our sugar cookie decorating. I knew that I wanted to wrap this story up and that Elle’s Studio products would be a perfect fit— especially the Cookies and Milk Cardstock Stickers

I set about making a 6 x 8 inch double page spread by first laying out my photos and then filling in the blanks with 3x 4 inch tags from the Document December Kit. I decided to keep to pinks and reds and chose my tags accordingly.

I used a page protector that had a 3 x 8 inch space and rather than using it for my journaling, I decided to make it a focal point. I used stickers from the Cookies and Milk Cardstock Stickers to build a fun cluster as well as a title! Bring on the sprinkles! How perfect are these stickers for documenting holiday baking? They’re my absolute

Next, I typed up my journaling about how we love this cookie decorating tradition—even if it’s a bit messy! Voila! There you have it! I’ve wrapped up my 2019 album and I couldn’t be more pleased! Remember— it doesn’t have to be overly-complicated or over-embellished to still pack a punch and get your stories told. I hope this inspires you to dig out a long-forgotten holiday project and get to work before you pull out all the stops documenting the current season! Enjoy!
