Hi there! Today is the 10th, and it's a very exciting day for me, not only because it is reveal day for the August exclusive kit, but also because today is the day we are debuting the new Exclusive Kit Mini Course to coordinate with the kits, and as I am the new Classroom Coordinator for Elle's, it is a big day for me!
Each month, we will be asking three different contributors to give you extra inspiration using the kit on a scrapbook layout, cards and a double pocket page spread. Once purchased, for a bargain price of $4.99, you will receive a link via email to download the course, allowing you to print or view on your tablet! The class will only be available until August 31, 2015, so be sure to purchase at the same time as your kit! This month's contributors are amazing, and I'm sure you will be inspired to put your kit to use once you have seen their projects!
I'm extremely proud of our first month's course, and I can't wait to share the contributors we have coming up for the next few months! Now on to the kit…
This month, I created two layouts to share with you today. I also have some cards on the way, which will be featured later in the month on the Elle's Studio blog.
My first layout, Enchanted Rock, features the softer side of the kit. Along with the kit, I used my favorite paper from the Sycamore Lane collection, along with the grey and white stripe from the Let's Eat collection paper pack. The "awesome" vellum piece from the kit was perfect for layering over the negative space in my photo, and I cut out the mountain range from a 3" x 4" card from the kit to layer on top of another tag and stitch to make it seem more like a custom embellishment than a tag.
I also loved adding little sayings and trees from the "Oh, No!" stamp set around my layout.
My second layout is my first 8-1/2" x 11" layout in years, and I couldn't love it more! The photos that I took from a recent trip to Tom + Chee, a Cincinnati-based tomato soup and grilled cheese shop, coordinated perfectly with this kit. To the kit, I added papers from the Let's Eat collection pack. The striped triangle pieces in the corners came from the "Here We Go" printables.
