Studio AE from Technique Tuesday | November Blog Hop

November Studio AE Layout

Welcome to the November Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop!

This month's stamp set is just in time for the upcoming holiday season. Introducing 25 Moments:

Perfect for documenting your December stories. Not a paper scrapbooker? Check out a similar digital version of this stamp set here: Holiday Word Art Vol.2

Here's a look at my layout:

I took some of my December photos from last year and put them together into a photo collage. The journaling talks a bit about my tradition of doing a December Daily. Seeing that image of my albums from the past few years is getting me really excited to pull them out again (I pack them away with my Christmas decorations, books, etc).

Here's a bit about the process:

I started with a photo collage (I think it was 6x8). I left a border around the edge of about 1/4 inch. Initially I was just planning to do a single page but as I worked through the process I ended up deciding to add the second page with the image of my albums in the basket. Adding that image helped give me a bit more focus on what story I wanted to tell.

I started off with the circle stamp from the set and Stick Candy ink from Jenni Bowlin. I ended up going with Seed Packet (a darker green ink) but you get the idea.

A 1.5 inch circle punch fits this stamp perfectly.

For the second page I stamped this sentiment and punched it using Marvy Uchida's tag punch.

I ended up stitching it right on top of the photo collage. I drew a border, added "twenty-ten" along the bottom, and played with the Smash Date Stamp on the top.

Here you can see that darker green ink. I paired that punched circle with two little buttons from Evalicious.

Stamped this sentiment from the set using Staz On Black Cherry ink.

And lastly I added some holiday word stickers from Girls Paperie.

    I can never imagine being this "crafty" during the holiday's. I am lucky to be able to breathe and function let alone do what you do. Amazing stuff. Always makes me want to come to your house for the holidays.

    Sigh. Love this page and thanks for letting us see your process. I am SO glad I am part of the Technique Tuesday Club! Having an 18 year old and seeing your 25 days albums almost makes me wish I could go back in time so that Nick was just a little kid and I could do the albums....almost!

    Awesome layout! You know, I have yet to scrap last Christmas (and it was my son's first). Just curious, what album does this layout go into? And what brand albums do you use for layouts like is?

      This will go in my 2010 album - an overall family album. I use We R Memory Keepers albums: http://bit.ly/dFo1z5. I mix 12x12 and 8.5x11 albums in there.
