Elle's Studio Pocket Page Process Video #2 with the July 2018 Kit

Hello there! In case you missed it, this is my second post today. You can see my Elle's Studio July 2018 kit reveal post which includes an unboxing video and pocket page process video #1 here

This afternoon I'm here to share the back side of the pocket page layout that I created using the July 2018 kit and add-ons* from Elle's Studio! 

Sticking to essentially the same products that I used on the front side of my layout creates a flow across the two sides of my page, but I added a few fun details that were different from the front. I'd love for you to watch this video to see how the page came together:

Be sure to shop all of the fun products that I used on this page via the gallery below, while supplies last! You won't want to miss having these summery, fun details to add to your projects!

Elle's Studio July 2018 Kit Reveal & Process Video!

Welcome to my blog! I'm so excited that today is the 10th, because that means brand-spankin' new product is available from the Elle's Studio shop! The July 2018 kit and add-ons* do not disappoint, and I know that you'll love using them to document your summer memories as much as I did. How about we take a look at my unboxing video to check out all of the new product?

How about this July kit? Not a stitch of pink to be found, and I love it! It has a lot of energy in this fun color scheme, and awesome graphics and fonts to really make your projects stand out!

The add-ons this month are SO fun! There is so much product here to embellish any project that you'd want to create, you won't really need any other options in your stash!

This month I created two 12" x 12" pocket pages using the new kit and embellishments! The color scheme, you guys, just has me at teal, orange and navy. I can't even handle the awesomeness. Just take a look:

While making my page, I filmed a process video so that you can see how the page came together, and the decisions I made around the new product I was using. Pull up a chair and watch this short video for all of the details:

The July kits are typically the most popular kits of the year, so be sure to grab this one quickly, and don't forget about the awesome add-ons this month that coordinate with the kit. You can shop all of the product I used on this pocket page in the gallery below, and be sure to stop by later today when I'll be sharing the back side of the page, along with another process video!

Elle's Studio June Kit + Add-Ons: At the Museum

In case you missed my first post of the day, the Elle's Studio June 2018 kit and add-ons* were released today! I already shared an 8-1/2" x 11" layout and process video, but for my second project, I wanted to switch things up a bit and document more photos with a 24" x 12" double-page spread!

(*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support of my YouTube feed and this blog!)

This spread records a fun day at the Houston Museum of Natural History with 5 photos, sized at 6" x 4", 3" x 2" and 4" x 4"! I love getting all of these photos on my page together, and the colors in the kit and add-ons this month coordinated perfectly with them!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_AtTheMuseum_03.jpg

I started off the spread with a base of the blue grid found in the Noteworthy paper collection. After I topped that with a clean, white base, I added full 6" x 6" Shine paper stack patterns that coordinated with the colors in my photos. The circles included on the Let's Relax stamp are meant to be for creating ice cream cones, but who says you have to use anything as intended? I made them float across my page from the top left corner to the bottom right, helping your eye move across this wide spread.

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_AtTheMuseum_04.jpg

There's a new girl in the shop. Her name is Chloe, and we are already good friends! The Chloe alphabet stamp is fun and whimsical, and it contrasts perfectly with the font in the Hello Happy puffy words

Two 3" x 4" tags from the June 2018 kit were perfect for adding my typed journaling to, and I love the added texture that the "favorite snapshot" Noteworthy wood veneer piece adds to the page. I layered it on top of one of the June print and cut labels—a new product for Elle! They're so easy to use! 

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_AtTheMuseum_05.jpg

I couldn't finish a layout about the natural history museum without including a few butterflies, chosen from the Noteworthy bits and pieces and puffy stickers! They were the perfect addition to the movement already created on this page by my stamped circles. I also love breaking my title up across the page—it's yet another tactic for making your eye move from the top left to the bottom right of the spread.

Check out all of the supplies that I used to create this layout in the gallery below, which will take you to each product in the Elle's Studio shop:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to grab the new June goodies while supplies last. Happy creating! 

Elle's Studio June 2018 Kit + Add-On Reveal!

Hello there! Summer is quickly approaching, and the June 2018 kit and add-ons* from Elle's Studio will get you ready to document all of your summer memories! Let's take a look at the kit and extras in this short unboxing video: 

(*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support of my YouTube feed and this blog!)

The fun June 2018 kit, which was created by collaborating with Geralyn Sy of In a Creative Bubble, is summery, graphic and contains the perfect amount of fresh color for your projects! 

EllesStudio_June_2018_Kit.jpg

The add-ons will complement any project you create, with an awesome mix of stamps, embellishment, labels and a new paper stack! 

EllesStudio_June2018_AddOns.jpg

From left to right, you can find: the Let's Relax stamp, Shine acrylic, June blank label stickers, Summer wood veneer frames, Hello Happy puffy words, Shine 6" x 6" paper stack, Chloe alphabet stamp, Jane alphabet stickers — white, bright hand-drawn acrylic hearts

I just had to search through my summer memories to find the perfect photos for this kit, and when I found two photos of my daughter running into the ocean waves, I knew I had to document them with the new supplies!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_BeachFunInTheSun_01.jpg

How awesome is this kit when paired with the Noteworthy collection? I couldn't love this layout more: the movement, the fun, graphic design and those awesome stamps! YES!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_BeachFunInTheSun_02.jpg

The awesome Hello Happy puffy words are perfect to recolor with an oil-based paint or marker, like the Sharpie oil-based markers that I used here. I also love how the Jane alphabet stickers pair with the puffy words to create the perfect title!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_BeachFunInTheSun_03.jpg

This awesome striped pattern appears in the June kit, as well as in the Shine 6" x 6" paper stack! It was perfect for customizing with the "summer vibes" phrase from the Let's Relax stamp! Don't forget to add the bright hand-drawn acrylic hearts to your cart to add a different texture to your page.

Take a look at how this quick and easy layout came together in this process video:

Check back here in just a couple of hours when I will be sharing a new 24" x 12" double page spread featuring the June 2018 kit and add-ons! Until then, click the links in the gallery below to shop all of the fun product that I used on my "Beach Fun in the Sun" layout:

Elle's Studio May 2018 Kit + Add-Ons: Girly Fun

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GirlyFUN_04.jpg

Hi there! I'm having so much fun creating with the May 2018 kit and add-ons* from Elle's Studio, and I created a girly, blinged-up layout to prove it! When I saw the colors in the kit, I immediately thought of a photo of my daughter and oldest Goddaughter playing dress up, complete with makeup!

(*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support of my YouTube feed and this blog!)

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GirlyFUN_01.jpg

This 8-1/2" x 11" layout came together easily, and my favorite part, the BIG title was created with a mix of the Title Builder Vol. 2 stamp and the wood veneer fun word!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GirlyFUN_05.jpg

I used every single bit of the 4" x 6" yellow tag from the May 2018 kit—I cut the word "sunshine" from the middle to use on my "Good Times in the Sunshine" layout, then I used the bottom half, here, to house my typed journaling and title, then added the top part above my photo. That big space at the bottom here was just perfect for stamping "perfectly girly" using the Title Builder Vol. 2 stamp. Just a little trick: The word "girl" is included in the stamp, so I added the "y" from the word "boy" to use the word "girly" in my title! I love how versatile this stamp set it for creating fabulous titles!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GirlyFUN_02.jpg

Now, how about this wood veneer fun word? It's natural wood, so you can use it as-is, or paint it, spray it; or do what I did here and bling it up using gold shapes and dots puffy stickers, the new spring mix puffy heart stickers, and pearls and bling from your stash! I backed this word with another favorite 4" x 6" tag from the May kit—the tiny, colorful polka dot tag. It added the perfect amount of color behind the word.

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GirlyFUN_03.jpg

With all of that bling at the bottom, I had to balance out the top of the layout a bit with some product! The amazing Hello stamp has a fun label that you can add your own phrases and dashed lines to, to create your own custom design! I stamped that and added the word "hello" to the center, then used the bottom corner to stamp my date. To the left of that, I added the purple "fav" die-cut clip from the May kit, then stamped the cute heart with dotted circle from the Hello stamp behind. Below that, I added the "play all day" sticker from the Play All Day phrase stickers (which are almost sold out, so grab them fast!) for another layer. I love this little grouping of product! 

I hope you love this layout as much as I do, in all of its girly glory! Be sure to pick up the products I used to create it before they're gone from the shop forever, by clicking the gallery links below. Thanks for reading and happy weekend creating!

Elle's Studio Let's Go Traveler's Notebook Kit!

I am so excited to introduce you to the Let's Go traveler's notebook kit*—one that Elle and I collaborated on when we were together earlier in the year. We loved creating this fun travel-themed kit, and I know you will love creating with it, just like I did! (*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support of my YouTube feed and this blog!)

Getting the physical kit in my hands was such an awesome moment for me, and creating with it was even more special! I decided to document a trip that we took to Seattle last fall, in my new gold dot Webster's Pages traveler's notebook, which is so gorgeous! I love that teal interior!

I kept the title page on the front of my insert quite simple, adding a 3" x 4" photo of my family and my favorite "location" stamp included in the kit, which I stamped with the Stanley Jr. solid and outline stamps.

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_SeattleTN_02.jpg

On the first page, I added another 3" x 4" photo with typed journaling above to the "oh the places we go" paper. I love that all of the colors in the kit are on this fun page. I also used the Adventure puffy stickers in my notebook—they work perfectly with the Let's Go kit

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_SeattleTN_03.jpg

This spread uses the same piece of paper, halved between the two pages. I love those tags included in the kit—they're perfect for adding journaling to my notebook!

Want to see how these pages came together? Watch my process video, which includes an unboxing of the kit itself! 

Be sure to grab the Let's Go traveler's notebook kit while supplies last! It's perfect for documenting adventures big and small!

Check out all of the beautiful colors included in this May 2018 kit! I especially love the yellow and greens added this month! The 4" x 6" tags are my favorite, and I've used all of them on the projects that I'm sharing here on the blog this week!

In addition to the kit, there are some fabulous new add-ons this month—ones that will make your projects: whether layouts, pocket pages or traveler's notebooks, truly shine!

EllesStudio_May2018_Add-Ons-2.jpg

EllesStudioMay2018Digitals.jpg

I started out with the kit by creating a new 8-1/2" x 11" layout with a big, favorite photo, and a BIG title! I couldn't love it more:

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_GoodTimes_01.jpg

Check out how this page came together in a quick process video! Grab a cuppa and take a look:

I have another project to share in a few hours—one that's a first for me: a traveler's notebook with the new Let's Go traveler's notebook kit! Until then, check out the products that I used in this video by shopping the gallery below:

EllesStudio_May2018_TitleBuilderVol2Bundle.jpg

I LOVE creating titles! Not only coming up with clever titles, but also choosing the product to make them! When I launched my class, Terrific Titles, at Big Picture Classes, I wanted to create a product that made title building easier, and that's when I paired with Elle's Studio to bring you the original Title Builder products! Now, Title Builder Volume 2 will add even more title possibilities to your stash! Watch this introduction video to see what you can create with this fun product!

I had so much fun creating with these new products last week! I quickly and easily made three simple projects, with beautiful and poignant titles! I love how easily they come together with these Title Builder products! 

EllesStudio_May2018_MeghannAndrew_ThisSweetGirl_05.jpg

Title Builder has been designed to work as a series of a 6" x 8" stamp, acrylic and wood veneer which you can get in a specially-priced bundle for 15% off the retail cost, or you can buy each piece individually. 

EllesStudio_TitleBuilderVol2_PDFsneak.jpg

With your purchase of the Title Builder Vol. 2 stamp or the bundle, you will also receive a PDF via email with over 100 title combinations that you can create with the stamp only! Add on the words from the acrylic, wood veneer or alphas from your own stash, and the possibilities are endless!

I can not wait to see what you create with these fun, new products! Be sure to tag me, @meghannandrew on Instagram, or simply use the hashtag #EllesStudio if you order, when your box arrives, or when you create with Title Builder Volume 2

Elle's Studio April Kit + Noteworthy REVEAL!

What an exciting day it is at Elle's Studio! Not only do we have a new kit and add-ons available in the shop, but a new collection, called Noteworthy! I have two different unboxing videos available to show you all of the new goodies! 

How fun are all of these new products! I was in heaven this month creating with all of these beautiful, new supplies:

The April kit is just fantastic. I love all of the beautiful colors and easy-to-use sentiments! 

EllesStudio_April2018_Add-Ons.jpg

Hello add-ons! They coordinate perfectly with the kit, as well as the new Noteworthy collection! From left to right you have: Everyday Goodness stickers, acrylic stars, Currently stamp, April labels, Adventure puffy stickers, Adventure acrylic, yellow puffy alphabet stickers, Mini Dated stamp, banner stickers, Currently wood veneer tabs and vellum sentiments

Let's not forget about the Noteworthy collection

This beautiful collection is available in a bundle with everything you see above, specially priced, and comes with free goodies! You can also purchase each element of the collection separately.  

I'm going to show you two projects that I created today, and save my favorite for later this week! First off, I used the April 2018 kit and Noteworthy collection to create a "wonderful" page about a wonderful day spent with my little family in the U.K., created with just a few products from the new release:

MeghannAndrew_WonderfulDay_01.jpg

I loved creating this border of banners using Noteworthy paper, tags from the new kit and stickers! How great is the new Mini Dated stamp, too? It's the perfect size for any place on a project! 

My next layout was created using Noteworthy only, and it records a very special moment in my daughter's life: the day she met her most favorite Disney character.

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_Favorite_01.jpg
EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_Favorite_03.jpg

I really can't choose a favorite product in this collection. From the stamp, to the puffy stickers and paper... it's all fabulous! 

Be sure to pick up the newest April 2018 kit at its introductory day price of $9.99 while supplies last, and don't forget to grab a Noteworthy bundle while they're in the shop! Happy shopping, and happy creating with these beautiful products! 

Elle's Studio March 2018 Reveal: Hello Easter

Hello! I'm here to share my second layout created with the March 2018 Kit and add-ons from Elle's Studio, which released today. To see all of the new product that was released today, as well as my first layout and process video, go to my previous reveal blog post

Easter is a big theme in this month's kit, and the beautiful colors in the kit were a perfect match to my daughter's dress that she wore for an Easter egg hunt at her school last year.

"Hello Easter" supplies | March 2018 Kit, Happy Day printables, Big Moment phrase stickers, vellum and wood veneer bunnies, little acrylic heartsHappy Moments stamp, Title Builder stampLive Laugh Love puffy stickers, XOXO 6" x 6" Paper StackFamily Fun 12" x 12" Paper Collection

How cute are these vellum bunnies? I love their fun, bright colors! I used them to flank my photos and draw attention to them. The Live Laugh Love puffy stickers flowers were also perfect to peek out from behind my photos.

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_HelloEaster_05.jpg

My title is often my favorite part of a layout, and this one is no exception! I used the word "hello" from the Title Builder stamp and layered it with the word "Easter" from this month's Happy Moments stamp. I love that beautiful handwritten font!  

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_HelloEaster_04.jpg

To the right of the title, I added the "love this so much" circle die-cut from the Happy Day printables. The "big smiles" Big Moment phrase sticker matched the pink paper from the XOXO 6" x 6" Paper Stack perfectly, and a flower from the Live Laugh Love puffy stickers finished off the grouping. To add a tiny bit of yellow and some texture to my paper strips, I used the dots border from the Happy Moments stamp. I love all of the fun sayings, patterns and images on this stamp!

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_HelloEaster_02.jpg

Be sure to check out all of the product I used on this layout while supplies last, and happy creating!

With all of the gorgeous color in this month's kit, I was inspired to document a photo full of colorful balloons, from our most recent trip to Disneyland.

Elle's Studio February Kit: The Best of 2017

There was something so inspiring about the Elle's Studio February digital cut files, and as soon as I saw the camera die-cut, I was inspired to repeat it over and over on an 8-1/2" x 11" layout to tell the best stories of 2017. (*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support of my YouTube feed and this blog!) 

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_TheBestof2017_01.jpg

Supplies | February 2018 kit, February digital cut files, February blank label stickers, wood veneer icons, shapes and dots puffy stickers, 2017 small black acrylic, All the Details stamp, Title Builder stamp, Icon stamp, XOXO 6" x 6" paper stack, Live Laugh Love 6" x 6" paper stack, Family Fun 6" x 6" paper stack, Family Fun 12" x 12" paper collection

I wanted to create a 2017 wrap-up layout to add to the end of my 2017 album, and when I got my colorful, die-cut patterned paper cameras on the page, created with the February digital cut files I wasn't left with much room for journaling. I racked my brain to figure out how I could make it work, then realized that I could change the die-cut file to add a journaling spot behind each camera, that would wrap up the highlights of each month from 2017. 

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_TheBestof2017_04.jpg

Adding the journaling behind my photos made this layout interactive—definitely one to pull of of the sleeve in your scrapbook album. I love how colorful the cameras are against that clean, white background, and I tried to coordinate the colors in my photos with the patterned paper colors to make them pop off the page. 

EllesStudio_MeghannAndrew_TheBestof2017_05.jpg

The 2017 small black acrylic was the perfect start to my title, and using it in black created the perfect amount of contrast I needed on this page to keep it graphic and bold. 

I loved creating this layout, and I filmed a process video while doing it! In it, you can see how I modified the camera die-cut to add my journaling behind my patterned paper cameras in Silhouette Studio software. I hope you can grab a cuppa (or—who are we kidding—a glass of wine) and have a watch!

You can find all of the product that I used on this layout in the Elle's Studio shop by clicking on the gallery images below. Thanks for your support and happy creating!

For my second layout created with the new January 2018 kit and add-ons*, I wanted to focus on some fitness goals I have for 2018, and filling in the "GOALS" tag from the January 2018 kit was the perfect way to start my page. (*All product links contained in this post are affiliate links.

I was completely inspired by the Twinkle Puffy Stickers to create an oversized, colorfully decorated tree on my layout to document this colorful celebration of Christmas in Hawaii. 

MeleKalikimaka_02_BLOG.jpg

I absolutely had to use the lyrics to one of my favorite Christmas songs by Bing Crosby, Mele Kalikimaka, for my title. You can see how this layout came together in the following process video!

My favorite part of reveal each month, the add-ons, will embellish your pages perfectly! This month, we have the November labels, Pure Joy stamp, puffy alphabet stickers in both red and green, wood veneer hearts and stars, Santa acrylic, cork circles, Christmas puffy heart stickers, Giving Thanks puffy stickers, Everyday banner stickers and wood veneer snowflakes.

But, the most exciting part about this release are the new Stanley Jr. alphabet stamps, which come in both a solid and outline.

I had to use these little guys as soon as my package arrived, and I created a fun, 8-1/2" x 11" Christmas layout about the best Santa Claus my daughter met in Disneyland last year.

I started my layout by creating the amazing buffalo check pattern along the left side of the page with the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Stamp. I'm certain that I will use this stamp often this year! I topped that with two patterns from the Family Fun 12" x 12" Paper Collection  and added the star die cut and "remember the magic" tag from the November 2017 Kit

My title was created with a mix of both the Stanley Alphabet and Stanley Jr. Alphabet stamps, in both the solid and outline, flanking the Santa Acrylic. I love the way those colorful letters pop alongside the white acrylic. I also created a Mickey head on top of one of the November Labels by using a Cork Circle and two circles cut from a tag in the November 2017 Kit

At the top, I backed my photo with one of my favorite tags from the kit this month, the multi-colored stripe, which I punched on each color with a small star punch. I also stamped the word "highlight" from the Pure Joy Stamp onto a tag from the kit and added the date. Some Family Fun Puffy Stickers scattered about finished off the page nicely. 

Want to see how I created this layout step-by-step? Watch the process video below! In it you will see how I stamped the buffalo check pattern (and covered up the unevenness with strips of paper!), how my title came together using the new Stanley Jr. alphabet stamps, and how I stamped a partial image withe the Pure Joy Stamp.

Thanks so much for watching and stopping by! This kit is sure to be a hit, so be sure to grab yours, along with the coordinating extras while they're still available in the shop and only $9.99 today! Stay tuned for my second project, a double-page layout, coming to the blog tomorrow! 

Documenting October with Elle's Studio October Kit + Add-Ons

Hi there! The Elle's Studio October 2017 kit and add-ons went live yesterday, and I shared a new layout and process video with you, but today, I'm switching things up a bit and showing you just how perfect the ES products can be in pockets! I documented our October 2016, and this kit was just made for my photos. (*All product links are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support!)

At the beginning of the page, we were headed back from a road trip to the mountains. The "life in photos" die-cut circle from the October kit was perfect for dressing up this yellow tag from the Favorite Season printable, and I also added a stamped "love" circle from the So Cozy stamp and a green "x" from the Summer Puffy Stickers. I'm still using them on my layouts! Below that, I added the "notes from this" phrase from the So Cozy stamp, then a piece of chipboard from my stash below.

October usually means racing for us, as we go to the Austin Grand Prix each year here in Texas. I loved the way that the diagonal striped 4" x 6" tag from the October kit pointed directly to my "F1 Grand Prix" journaling tag. I also added the "play" stamped circle from the So Cozy stamp in the top corner, to add a little bit of orange.

 I was happy to get myself in this page, too, sporting my favorite driver, Lewis Hamilton's gear. The next tag's background was created with a piece of the Family Fun 6" x 6" Paper Stack, and was perfect for the "being together tag" from the October Kit, an acrylic heart from the Stars and Hearts Mixed Acrylic and a the heart Vellum Speech Bubble.

How awesome is this little frame included in the So Cozy stamp? I stamped the frame, then "so cozy" inside of the frame before cutting it out and adhering it directly to my photo with dimensional adhesive. It was the perfect saying for this photo!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! The new products in the Elle's Studio shop this month are just perfect, and with them I created one of my favorite pocket pages to date! Later, I'll be sharing how I'm doubling this page up with another layout to finish off the month. Until then, be sure to shop these supplies from the gallery below before they're sold out of the shop! Happy creating! 

Elle's Studio October Reveal!

It's amazing that October is already here, and since it is the 10th, I'm sharing another amazing Elle's Studio kit with you! I thought this month I'd share the kit contents and add-ons in video form, so grab a cuppa and watch this quick run-though of all of the new product available in the shop! (*All product links are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale! Thanks for your continued support!) 

The first project I created with the new goodies had to use the Wood Veneer Leaves and the leaves included in the So Cozy Stamp! I loved creating a colorful, stamped wreath around my circular photo using the leaves from the stamp, as well as the Stanley Alphabet Outline, and accenting with tags from the October Kit and the "I love autumn" Vellum Speech Bubble

The layout turned out exactly as I had hoped, and I'd love to share how it all came together with you in this process video! 

Stay turned until tomorrow, when I will share a 12" x 12" pocket page layout that I created, using the new October Kit and add-ons! Until then, happy creating! 

All of the product that I used on the layout can be found in the Elle's Studio shop:

September Pocket Pages Using the New Elle's Studio Kit!

There are so many project possibilities available with the new September Kit from Elle's Studio! Yesterday, I shared an 8-1/2" x 11" layout, and today, I wanted to show you a double pocket page spread that I created, documenting September 2016. When I create my pages, I carry the same color scheme across a double page spread, and for this layout I chose dark blue, light blue, yellow and orange. (*All product links are affiliate links.

Supplies | September 2017 Kit, Sweater Weather PrintablesDate Night Stamp, Wood Veneer Borders, Thankful Sticker Labels, Autumn Sequins, Happy Birthday Stickers (balloons), Acrylic Summer Shapes (glasses), Foodie Journaling TagsFamily Fun Journaling Tags, Family Fun Bits and Pieces, Family Fun Acrylic Shapes ( blue heart), Family Fun Stamp, Olivia Alphabet Stamp, Dated Stamp, Title Builder Stamp, Happy Birthday Stamp

I love all of the energy in this page, and I really kept the embellishment to a minimum, but it doesn't appear so! On the left side, I used the blue 4" x 6" tag from the new Family Fun Journaling Tags to top my spread, stamping "SEP" over and over in blue ink using the Dated Stamp

The embellishment I used on this side was only the Date Night StampThankful Sticker LabelsWood Veneer Borders and die-cuts from the kit.

I also had to use one of the new Foodie Journaling Tags to document a favorite lunch spot! 

Sept2016PocketPages_Closeup2.jpg

On the right side of the page, I used the Sweater Weather Printables to create a customized 4" x 6" tag for the top of the spread. By taking a 3" x 4" tag from the digital file, duplicating it and mirroring it on a 4" x 6" page, then re-colored it to match my spread.

The entire process only took about three minutes, and I created a tag that works perfectly for this spread! Because a birthday photo was next to the tag, I added the balloons from the Happy Birthday Stickers and Happy Birthday Stamp, along with some Autumn Sequins. I carried the "SEP" title from the left side and added "story" using the Title Builder Stamp

On this side, just like on the left, I used very little embellishment— mainly stamps and die-cuts from the September kit. On this journaling tag placed next to a photo of my new goddaughter, I added "I love being your" and "mother" from the Family Fun Stamp, and added "god" using the Olivia Alphabet Stamp, along with a Family Fun Acrylic Shape heart.

This page came together quickly and easily because the September Kit coordinates so well with the new Family Fun collection. Check out all of the new product in the Elle's Studio shop today to help you document your September memories!
