Document December with Cocoa Daisy Kits

How has everyone been?  I am trying to keep up with everyone on Instagram, Facebook, and at Cocoa Daisy.  But I will admit that I have been a busy little elf in getting ready to teach a Document December class at Cocoa Daisy.  Videoing, write-ups, editing...and some computer dilemmas just enough to slow the process down, but I worked around it and so in love with my album, and what I will be sharing in class.

 I hope you have had a chance to pick up one of the Christmas kits Cocoa Daisy is offering. There is a Main KitAdd-On (Sold Out)Day in the Life, and a Stamp Set.

Here is a video showing you the the contents of the kits.  CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

With the purchase of a Christmas kit, you will be part of a class I will be teaching starting December 1st.  You will receive a password to enter a separate forum for discussions, daily inspiration, and the class content.  The gallery will be visible to everyone.  The class is a great way to work together and support each other with excitement, motivation, and help you have a completed album by the end of December.  Not to mention, working with fresh new, gorgeous products.  The Pink Paislee album is part of the main kit.
This year I decided to work ahead and create base pages.

Here is a video showing you my pages.  CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO

And here are a few photos of the base pages.  I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed working with these kits so far.  The kits are packed.  You will have plenty to work with and make documenting December easy to put together.

And last photo to show you that the size of the Pink Paislee album was perfect to fit all of my pages.  All I have left to add are the photos and journaling, and I still have room.

Hope to see you in class and cannot wait to be inspired by everyone!

Elle's Studio November Gallery and Kit Reveal

Time for another Elle's Studio kit reveal and Inspiration Gallery!  The kits always seem to get better and I do love the holiday kits!

I used the November kit along with the Number Pennant cut files for this layout.  I love when a layout comes out how you wanted it too!

I used the kit here as well for my Project Life spread.

And then last, I did a couple of tags using the tags cut files.  
This tag uses the Christmas Ephemera kit (the wood veneer).

 This tag uses the Winter Ephemera kit (the wood veneer).  Both tags use the Warmest Wishes stamp.

Be sure to stop by Elle's Studio Inspiration Gallery for a complete list of supplies and more ideas on using the kits and new collections!

October Afternoon | Sketch and Color Challenge

Hello!!  I have two layouts to share that went up on the October Afternoon blog this month.

This first was based on a simple sketch I created.
Sketches are not my strong point, but I love sketches to just get you started.  Melanie Blackburn joined me with the sketch and she and I both went in different directions with it.  You can see what she did here.
I loved the added stamping to the chipboard clouds...will have to do that again, love the look it gave.
For my vertical lines from the sketch, I went with journaling cards to add lots of journaling behind this snapshot of my daughter busy literally unloading her brain after a day of school.
And then yesterday, I joined Emily Spahn with her challenge of using warm or cool colors.  The first layout is definitely warm and cozy, where this one is cooler.  I did cheat and use some yellow green.
I just came down with an ear infection and did my best to get this done.  Selecting the colors and basic design helped me get it done and then get some rest.  I covered cardstock with the days of the week washi tape and punched a large circle, using the other part to the right by the photo.
 I think this is one of my favorite color combos.  I used some of my new Dina Wakley paints I picked up recently.  The aqua paint was perfect here and there.
Thanks as always for stopping by!  Please stop by the October blog to see what Emily created!
