Elle's Studio January Tag Kit Reveal!
The Elle's Studio tag kit this month is so lovely- the entire time that I was looking through the tags, I was thinking, 'Geez, I really wish that I was doing Project Life!' because so many of them would be perfect for a Project Life opening page for 2014. However, if you're not dedicated enough for Project Life, like me, you will still love this kit!
Also, don't forget the coordinating stamp this month- quantities are limited, so you'll want to pick one up with your order! The 'love' sentiment will be perfect for Valentine's Day cards!
Now to my layout. I love stars, so the first tag that I picked out was the yellow star tag, which led to this photo of my girl wearing her star sweater on New Year's Day. From there, I started building on the star theme & decided to make the layout about our hopes for the New Year.
Other supplies: American Crafts (cardstock, stitching template, yellow Thickers), Studio Calico (patterned paper, asterisk Thickers, gold sequins- all from Marks & Co. scrapbook kit)
Journaling reads, "Hoping and praying that 2014 is a better year than last for you, Lizzy girl. Less sickness and hospital time, more happy moments with family & friends- that's what we need. Here's to a good year."
I loved the grey & white striped card from the kit & wanted to put my journaling on it, but the sentiment wasn't working for this layout, so I layered that with the star tag & the 'You + Me = Happiness' tag. Oh, I think I could use about 20 of those tags.
The other tags on this layout, 'Hello New Year,' & '#Happy' are also Elle's Studio, but from the 2014 paper collection, another great one to have on hand for your 2014 themed projects! Speaking of 2014, check out my blog in the next few days to see another simple & easy project that I know you'll love.
The January cut files are also fantastic this month. I cut out the heart and the 'love' sentiment on patterned paper with my Silhouette and paired them with the awesome frame from the kit to create this shaker card. The colors make me so very happy & I've got a jump start on my Valentines!
Other supplies: Crate Paper ('xo' patterned paper), Elle's Studio (pink polka-dot paper), American Crafts (teal Thickers), Studio Calico (sequins)
Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget that the price of the kit is $9.99 today only! Happy creating!
