I have loved working with the April 2019 Kit* from Elle’s Studio, and now that the kit is released, I finally get to share the beautiful products, and the projects that I created with them, with you! In case you missed it, I shared my first layout and process video, Go See Do Adventure, earlier this week. Today I’m sharing a completely different layout that celebrates motherhood, with a photo of me and my girl from last Easter.

I loved this photo that we took together before service last Easter, and I wanted a pretty, springy feel for this layout to go along with it. I started by wanting to create a clean, but springy background for my layout, with lots of pretty color! The Wander Stamp was the perfect product to use to create a custom background of flowers. After backing my photo with yellow and purple papers from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, I paired that grouping with the striped journaling tag from the April Kit and then backed my 8” x 10.5” white cardstock sheet with an 8-1/2” x 11” striped patterned paper from the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. These elements created my color scheme, and I used the same colors to stamp pink, mulberry, purple and yellow flowers emanating from my matted photo. I also added some of the petals to get movement and make the flowers seem like they were frozen in motion.
Now it was time to add a bit more extra embellishment! For a different texture to my stamped flowers, I grabbed the gorgeous Butterflies and Flowers and Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers to add among the petals. The butterflies came in handy too! I added them to add even more movement, and drew dashed lines behind them using my favorite Elle’s Studio Sharpie pen. I also added a few drops of gold metallic spray, and a few black enamel dots for some contrast to all of that color.
This photo, and now this layout, makes me so happy, and it was so fun to create with the April 2019 products from Elle’s Studio!
