Document December Prep Week Two: How To Get Organized For This Project

I am so excited to be a guest designer for Elle's Studio and create projects to Document December 2019. For week two, I am sharing some easy organization tips to help you play in your December albums.




I made a distressed toolbox into a farmhouse caddy to hold all of my Document December supplies for embellishing pages. The front sections store my die cuts and shapes as well as stickers, acrylic and wood veneer and the large back section stores puffy stickers and stamps. Having everything divided by type helps me locate it quickly. Keeping my supplies out and easily accessible helps the project along with a dedicated place for everything. 




The second container holds all the base supplies: 6″ x 8″ paper, 4″ x 6″, and 3″ x 4″ tags from the Document December 2019 Kit. I divided the 3″ x 4″ tags into two sections: journaling tags on the right and filler cards on the left. I divided up the cards based on the way my mind works, and the way I use these supplies. 




With my containers gathered together, I can play with the Document December products from left to right. First, my 6″ x 8″ album with pocket pages inside, then the container of base pages, then the tool caddy of embellishments. Having the products out and visible helps me to stay on track. You could also add a notebook to track things you want to journal, or note that in your planner like I do!



Thank you for joining me today, and I hope this organizational idea helps you.

Crate Paper Memorydex Cards in a Farmhouse Style Box: Gratitude

Hello friends! Have you enjoyed seeing a farmhouse trend in DIY creations? I have been so inspired by the farmhouse trend, and made some new Memorydex Style cards for my Farmhouse Dollar Store DIY Memorydex Dupe! 



I used the dies from Heidi Swapp to cut the Heritage line from Crate Paper for the background. Then added on heritage cupboard, die cuts, and some Washi tape from Crate Paper.



So, here is the card in my Farmhouse Style Dollar Store DIY Memorydex Dupe! I will link a video below where I make the box.

Prepping for Document December: Farmhouse Style Tool Caddy

Hello friends! I have a new DIY craft with a Farmhouse style! This time, I am prepping my Elle's Studio supplies for the Document December 2019 album. 



I made a DIY Farmhouse style sign for the caddy with a free font from dafont.com, and added a buffalo check ribbon and some Dollar Tree winter picks. 



I have the stamps from www.shopellesstudio.com in the back, die cuts on the left, stickers in the center, and acrylic words and wood veneer on the right. This way, all the embellishments for my album will be easy to flip through, and won't get lost on a desktop. 



Look here for supplies to make this project:
tool caddy: Michaels 
Document December Kit: document-december-2019-kit
Ribbon: Michaels 
winter picks: Dollar Tree
