I think we can all agree that Hayley Stewart did an amazing job with the December kit. Here is her last share. Thanks Hayley for all your inspiration!
I had so many bits and pieces left that I really liked and wanted to use so I put together a few cards that I can use for my Project Life or for my December Daily.
Annelie I just loved this kit, I felt like I could just go on and on and on. It was brilliant and I had so much fun with it.
Thanks for having me!
Hi everyone! You have hopefully received the colourful January kit by now! Unfortunately this month’s GDT has not! But luckily, Hayley has more to share from the December kit. She totally amazed me with her creativity with this kit, here is another LO for you to be inspired by!
I love these Elle’s Studio papers, I really adore papers with text, it’s one of my things. So I cut some strips of varying widths and lined them up until I found something I liked. That first one is the retail strip from one of the papers which I just had to use. I knew I wanted to use this photo but actually include another picture and my journaling somewhere so when I adhered my photo I only stuck the three sides – instant pocket!
I changed the colour of my birds by pushing them into my red distress ink pad. I also adjusted the colour of my title and journal block with distress ink as it was just too white to go with these cream based papers.
While we are waiting for the January kit to arrive to Crazy Monday HQ, let’s get inspired from Hayley yet again. She truly has done wonders with the December Kit!
I loved this giant chevron so much I had to use it again,it worked so well with the text paper.
The October Afternoon labels had “to and from” at one end which was cute but not what I needed for this page as I wanted to journal on them.
So I tucked the end with the “to and from” under the photo and used the remained that was peeking out for my writing.
I popped the occasional one up with foam adhesive so it wouldn’t be completely flat.
I then finished off with the chipboard pieces, how appropriate that the mouse with the red bauble considering that my daughter is holding one that is identical!
When I have a bunch of pictures of the same thing I like to scatter them around the page and then put the details, title,
journaling etc in the middle. I popped the occasional photo up on foam to give it a little dimension as most of
my other elements were flat. I finished the page off with a strip of the gold paper top and bottom and a few gems to bring it all together.
Didn’t I tell you Hayley has SMASHED this kit with loads of inspirational stuff… Here’s another LO for you all!
This page has more of a grid style layout which is very much me. I start with the photos, figure out how much space they will take up and see what bits and pieces I have that will compliment it. I started with the Christmas day flag and went from there. I finished it off with a bit of stitching.
Hayley is back with more inspiration, and there is loads more to come. Enjoy!
I had so many ideas for the doilies that came in the kit… I decided to make one into a confetti shaker.
I made the confetti with the chic tags gold and white dot paper and added the music note veneers. I used the plastic wrapper from the chic tags to contain them and then I sewed them inside. One of my favourite things in the kit is the little tags that came on the retail strip of the elle’s studio and chictags papers. They are an awesome bonus. I used the family time and merry and bright on top of the doily.
I wanted to make a confetti/sequin type scatter with the tiny gems. The great thing with that is you just scatter them and glue them down, no fussing with placement they look best exactly as they fall. I was excited to use the chic tags transparent tags and made a loose design down the side of the page and then nestled my title and story between them.
