Elle's Studio December Reveal

It's December 10 -- time for the reveal of the monthly kit and extras at Elle's Studio!
Did you notice the new chipboard shapes? More, please! I used a few of them, plus the "Counting Steps" stamp set and one of the wood veneer words on the following page: 

Yes, there is a lot of green here. 'Tis the season, right? 
Actually, this isn't a Christmas page at all. It's more of a year-ender, the kind of page that comes about when I start thinking about where I am and where I hope to be. I love my life, but that doesn't mean I can't still have goals -- in fact, I have goals precisely because I love my life and want to make the most of it. 

I began the layout by painting a sheet of cardstock with various hues of green and aqua. I then stamped the word "goals" in a large circle using green and white ink. I hand-cut the cardstock into large circle and then used watermark ink and embossing powder over parts of it.  Then I added my journaling over that and stitched around the circle multiple times.  

Be sure to check out the blogs of the other team members as well as the Elle's Studio blog, for more project ideas.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I agree - goals are always good! Lovely page; your painted piece reminds me of the world and the idea that anything is possible.
