I have to admit, I loved using the different elements to complete my title.
I didn’t want to go too embellishment heavy, as I really wanted my title to stand out. Therefore, I only added very small clusters using the cute die cuts from the November 2021 and Document December 2021 kits. I also added a dark green Chipboard Tree Sticker to match the left side of my spread.
The stamped gold little stars from the A Merry Moment Stamp added the perfect finishing touch for my spread.
Hey there Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Aimee back on the blog today focusing on the new Monthly Numbers Stamp that was released in November. I really wanted to showcase how versatile this stamp set is, so I challenged myself to use it on a traveler’s notebook layout rather than using it on a layout or in a memory planner, which is what generally comes to mind when thinking about monthly number stamps. Let’s check it out!
I started out this spread by creating my own 3 x 4 inch filler tag using the Monthly Numbers Stamp. I chose a beautiful grey ink from Catherine Pooler called Twilight and the circular November stamp out of the set. I began stamping in a diagonal fashion until the card was full—making sure I was also stamping off the edge of the tag for a cohesive look. Next, I wanted to fill in the circles I just stamped with some words from the stamp set. I chose Fav, Fun and 2021 and stamped them inside the circles using Catherine Pooler Hot Tub, which I think is a beautiful match to the kit colors.
I adorned my freshly made tag with a die cut from the November 2021 Kit, a phrase sticker from the Holiday Fun Stickers and Puffy Star Stickers. Again, I found more opportunities to use the Monthly Numbers Stamp by simply stamping the month onto the top of a tabbed journaling tag as well as using it in place of a roller date stamp by adding the date that my photo was taken on the left side of the page near my photos.
To keep with my theme, I pulled out the Acetate Months from my stash and machine stitched “November” alongside my photo booth style photo collage. I simply love the interest this brings to the spread. Now, I needed more color on the page, so I grabbed embellishments that would mirror the colors on the filler tag that I created earlier. I chose a large pink heart from the Full of Joy Chipboard Stickers and layered the Holiday Fun Stickers on top. Snuggle love indeed! I brought in pops of blue with die cuts from the November Kit and popped them up on foam dots for added dimension.
So what do you think? Are monthly number and date stamps just for planners, or would you consider using them on a layout? I had so much fun creating my own pocket tags and I could have created an entire background, too! The sky is the limit with the Monthly Numbers Stamp and I truly hope I inspired you to look at your stamp sets in a brand new way today. Catch you next time!
Welcome to December friends!

Let’s take a look at all of the wonderful pages and pockets that our team has been crafting this week with our Document December products!
Nicole also used our Dec 2021 Cork to start off her album, with a layered tag feature on the inside of the cover. Opposite, Nicole created a stunning feature to cover her December calendar using elements from the Document December Kit. What a beautiful spread!
We love interactive elements in our album, and this page by Michelle featuring an accordion tag element has us so excited! We love that Michelle added a title in using our Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest products, too!
This spread by Patricia takes a different spin on the use of colour, and we love that Patricia coordinated the large stars stamped with the Holiday Shapes Stamp to her daughter’s t-shirt, tying the two sides together perfectly.
Check out this fun calendar that Marsha created using stamps, stickers and die cuts from our Document December collection! This is one beautiful way to fill in your December calendar!
Jackie created a little peek-a-boo page to start off her album, using our Dec 2021 Cork, the fun Santa’s Favorite Chipboard Stickers from our Document December Kit and the Wonder Paper Stack. She even documented her advent candle, adding a page to start off her album!
For starters, have you tried the digital files yet? There’s digital cut files, digital labels, and even printables—something for any kind of craft project!

The top tag was created with plain, white cardstock trimmed smaller than 3 x 4 inches and layered over a Wonder Paper Stack pattern trimmed to 3 x 4 inches to create a frame. I used this tag to add my title, using the chipboard stickers, stamp and vellum die cuts together!

Hi Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Katarina back with you again with some fresh inspiration! The holidays are approaching, and it’s time to create pretty holiday cards! I had the best products to make them: the newest Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp with coordinating products and the beautiful Wonder Paper Stack. I created two Christmas cards— let’s have a look.
I wanted to create an interesting background for my cards and use the latest Title Builder stamp at the same time. I chose the “fa la la” stamp from the Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp and repeat stamped it on a piece of white cardstock using Versamark embossing ink. Next, I used white embossing powder and my heat gun to make my stamps ink resistant. Then, I combined various hues of Distress Oxide inks and a blending brush to create two different backgrounds. I loved the result!
Today we are excited to welcome back our November guest designer, Emma Kate to the blog! Emma is showing us how to create a spectacular and festive layout today, using only a few elements from our shop along with some mixed media fun! Let’s see what she created!
Hey Elle’s Studio friends, I’m back to share with you a festive 12 x 12 inch layout using the awesome Wonder Paper Stack and some mixed media goodness. Each pattern design was so beautiful I just had to use them all!
I began by sketching out a Christmas tree shape to create a template, then I fussy cut 13 Christmas trees as odd numbers are more visually appealing. I then got to work on my background by firstly prepping my white cardstock with clear gesso.
When the gesso was completely dry, I used the packaging technique along with Distress Oxide Sprays in complimentary colours to create my base. Furthermore, I randomly stamped, in black ink, stars from the A Merry Moment Stamp using second and third generation stamping to add depth to my background.
Next, I arranged my photos and Christmas trees and when I was happy with the placement I adhered them to my page using wet glue. When adhering my Christmas trees, I only used a tiny amount of glue as I wanted to machine stitch along the centre of each tree then fold up each side to add dimension to my layout.
To finish my layout, I added the ‘Good Times’ red heart from the Full of Joy Chipboard Stickers along with my journalling before I mounted my entire page onto grey cardstock to balance the grey tones of my photos. I absolutely love this time of year and all of the Elle’s Studio goodies are just perfect for documenting those magical moments!
Let me introduce myself! My name is Emma, “createwithemmakate” is my social media name and is where you can find all my scrapbooking ventures. I live in Bristol, in the United Kingdom, with my partner Joe and 5 year old little girl, Bea. During the day I work full-time as a Senior Science Technician but at night after I’ve put Bea to bed I like to relax by being creative.
Documenting my memories using paper crafts is such a joy for me, I feel like I have a picture book of Bea’s life which I absolutely love. Also eagerly awaiting the latest scrapbooking collection is always fun, knowing that you have more supplies than you will ever need but just cant resist that patterned paper that you don’t have or those super cute puffy stickers that you absolutely can’t live without. And the best thing about all of that, every scrapbooker understands the madness!
Welcome to week three of our Document December Prep Party! Today we’re hearing from design team member Marsha Farris who is organized, but doesn’t create much in advance. Maybe you’re the same? Let’s take a look at what products Marsha is pairing and what she has been creating using our Document December 2021 collection!
Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! This is Marsha, and I’m excited to share a few things I’ve done to prep my Document December album! I love documenting my holiday memories, and by doing a little prep work and planning before the month begins, the process is so much easier during the busy days of December.
I organize all of my Document December supplies in a divided desk organizer, along with a few small containers for the smaller bits and pieces. This keeps all of the products together and easy to find while I’m crafting. I added a bit of holiday fun to the organizer by embellishing a Star Journaling Tag with a sticker and die cut from the Document December Kit and stars from the Christmas Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers.
Next, I added die cut vellum stars created with the My Star Metal Die. The Christmas Puffy Alphabet Stickers were perfect for including the initial on each envelope. Then, I adhered the envelopes onto a trimmed patterned paper and punched holes along the edge to hold this page in the album. Now the envelopes are ready for my boys’ Christmas wish lists!
