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:

November Studio AE Layout

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.

    Love seeing some of your Christmas layout (outside of your Dec Daily). I needed some of this inspiration. I can never motivate myself to do Christmas layouts outside of my Dec Daily.

    The "eye chart" stamp is out of sight(pardon the pun).
    Thanks for the chance to win some great things. Lisa S.
