There's An Elf on Our Shelf!

It's Louise here with a few pages to share using the Studio Calico Wonderland Collection.
This year we jumped on the Elf on the Shelf band waggon. My boys loved waking up each morning to see where in the house Buddy the Elf was, and more importantly what he had been up to! Just our luck we got a mischievous elf!
I took photos each day of our elf, planning to record his adventures using Instagram photos. So far I've managed to scrap half of the photos.
I used these fab number stamps from Elle's Studio on each page. They are simple and bold in design, and just the right size to be used with a 1 inch circle punch.
On the first page introducing Buddy the Elf, I also used the Studio Calico Star Mask with some white acrylic paint. The Wonderland alphas worked perfectly with the mini stickers from the collection pack to create the title.
I stamped the number 1 with red ink then used a wet glue to carefully cover the design before adding a thick layer of extra fine glitter
 The stamps also work well with embossing powder.

As you can see from the 14 days of elf mischief I have recorded so far, the Wonderland papers are really versatile. I still have so much of the collection pack left that I'll easily be able to finish the little album. I'll share those with you soon.
Thanks for looking.
