elle's studio: november gallery

hi and happy sunday!!

the november gallery is live at elle's studio today!  and that means a new kit is out today too!!

i created a lovely layered layout using the november kit and a few of the november cut files.

the leaves are from the tags in the cut file set.  i just trimmed around the leaf part of the tag and cut those individually.

and i had so much fun playing around with the new noel collection this month.  and those wood veneersā€¦.swoon!  the wood veneers are going fassssst so get yours before they are gone!!

i'm loving white space with a pop of color this month.  the reds just jump right off the page to me!!

here's a look at my favorite layout for this month!  you can see my other project in the design team gallery and i'll post it to my blog later this month!!  :)

i love this photo of my daughter and son picking out a tree last year.  so beautiful and so simple.  
i wanted my photo to be the main focus of my page, so i kept my background very neutral.  i started by layering on a piece of the snowflake patterned paper from the noel collection on one side and then sewed it into place.  then i trimmed a piece of the snowflake vellum (so pretty) and added it to the other side of my card stock.  to add a little more dreaminess to the page, i only sewed three of the sides down and then sprinkled in some of the wood veneer on that side.  then i sewed the top up!!  i love the effect and blur!!  

thanks so much for stopping by today!!  be sure to check out the design team gallery for much more inspiration!  everything is so lovely!
