Hi! It’s Ashley with a new layout, using the Through the Year collection! This is such fun collection, because it gives you a little bit of all the seasons in one pack. You could easily use this collection, to create a variety of cards, pocket scrapbook pages, or a layout, like I’m sharing today!
I used a mix of the patterned papers and stickers on my layout, and I wanted to create an interactive element on my page, using the coordinating Designer Dies. The File Tab Die Set caught my eye, and I decided to create a mini file folder to add to my page. Here’s a quick tutorial showing how I made the file folder with the Die Set.
1. Start by choosing one of the four file tab dies from the Die Set, and placing it on the November patterned paper. Run your paper and die through your die cutting machine.
2. Once your die is cut, it will look like this. Use your paper trimmer to cut the sides of the paper.
3. Now you can decide where you want to fold your file folder. Then just use a scoreboard or your paper trimmer to score a line and then fold in half.
4. Your finished folder will look like this.
Once your file folder is complete, you can attach it to your layout, and use some of the stickers from the Element Stickers Sheet to decorate it. Now you’ve got a cute folder, for storing your child’s favorite drawings or extra school photos. You can keep your folder closed, by adding a paper clip, which works in perfectly for a school themed layout!

Hi everyone! Lisa with you today to share a Through the Year layout that puts the focus on the Alpha and Element stickers in this collection. There are so many ways to use stickers on your projects.
1. Layer them to create clusters or scenes. Using a mix of shapes and sizes will give the finished cluster or scene some interest.
2. Add dimension with foam adhesive so the resulting look isn't flat.
3. When it comes to sentiment stickers, think about stacking them, one on top of the other.
4. Tuck stickers behind patterned paper or place them beside other elements.
Let's take a look at some of these ideas and how I used them on my layout.
This image shows stickers that have been layered to create a cluster (idea #1) mixed with stickers popped up on foam adhesive (idea #2).
At the top of the page, I used a number of stickers to create a scene (idea #1) and popped a couple with foam adhesive to give them dimension (idea #2).
Here's an angled shot to show you a sticker that's been popped up with foam adhesive.
This last shot shows more layering, using ideas #1 and #2. Just to the left of this cluster, you'll see an example of idea #3 (stacking sentiment stickers). There are other examples of stacking in the bottom left corner of the photo and above the striped paper where the “to do” and “week” stickers are stacked.
Examples of idea #4 can be found on the left side of the page where the “to do” sticker is tucked behind the striped paper and on the right side of the page where I've added the “day” sticker alongside the kraft tag.
I hope you enjoyed getting a look at Through the Year and seeing various ways to use the Element and Alpha Stickers. There are other fun products in this collection that can help enhance your projects. There are Pocket Page Cards in two sizes (3x4 and 4x6) as well as Designer Stamps and Designer Dies, all meant for your day-to-day and seasonal memory keeping.
