Elle's Studio March Kit Reveal!

The March kit and add-ons* are now live in the Elle’s Studio shop, and I have a brand new unboxing video to show you all of the new goodies! Take a look:

How about a look at the beautiful, springy March 2019 kit?! These tags and die cuts will have you documenting your springtime memories in a beautiful way, whether you are recording everyday life, or special holiday events!

Don’t forget about these amazing add-ons to embellish your projects! From beautiful new patterns to yummy chocolate bunnies, you’ll want to add a few of these to your projects this month!

I started out by creating some Easter cards this month! I could not resist using the wonderful Easter wood veneer or acrylic pieces, and I had a great time with all of the patterns in the Springtime 6 x 6 paper stack!

Fun, right? I also created a new pocket page spread, all about my daughter’s favorite spring pastime: egg hunting! I love the happy day that this project documents, and the March kit and extras were perfect to pull it all together in my album.

Zoo Crew with the Elle's Studio January Products

Yesterday I shared the newest kit release* from Elle’s Studio, along with an 8-1/2” x 11” layout, and today I’m switching gears to share an event-based, 7” x 12” pocket page layout, all about a colorful trip to the Houston Zoo with our besties. The colors of the kiddo’s bright coats on this cold day were perfect for using alongside this kit—no black and white photos needed here!

On the front of the page, I created a title using the outline and solid Jane Alphabet Stamps—the largest that Elle has ever released. I love that they coordinate with the “XO” tag in the January kit, found at the base of my page. These are definitely my new favorite alphabet stamps and I love that they are large enough to use on layouts, but still great for pockets, too! The black and white polka dot puffy alphas were great for finishing off my title against the larger alphas.

This tag was created using the Love You printables—the tag was originally 3” x 4” and I stretched it to 4” x 4”. I love that you can make anything work with digital files! I simply added the “today was good” Happiness Found sticker, an acetate heart die cut and a wood veneer heart to embellish my main journaling tag.

I kept the same colorful hues on the back of the layout, matching the tags to the coordinating photos by the most bold color in the photo. Not much more journaling was required, so I keep to mainly pretty filler tags.

My favorite pocket on the back was created with the heart 4” x 6” tag from the January kit. From there I added “wild girls” using the black and white polka dot puffy alphas and “you are the best” with the Happy Heart stamp. Since three girlies enjoyed this day, I added three hearts: a die-cut circle heart from the January kit, a red acetate heart die cut and a solid wood veneer heart.

I love this spread, and the day that it records! Be sure to grab these supplies while they last in the Elle’s Studio shop, via the links in the gallery below. Thanks so much for reading, and happy creating!

Elle's Studio September 2018 Kit: A Day at the Ballpark Pocket Page + Process Video

Hello! I'm so excited to have the new September 2018 kit and extras from Elle's Studio on my desk this month, and when I saw the new Go Team journaling tags, stamp and wood veneer, that released as extras with the kit, I knew that I needed to document my family's yearly trip to a Cincinnati Reds baseball game, and I did that with a new pocket page:

This Design J pocket page is one of my favorites, and I had documented a fun day visiting the U.S.S. Midway with it before—it's one of my favorite pocket pages that I've created this year. I decided to not re-invent the wheel, so I used the exact same photo/tag layout that I used for that page on this one. It helped me to complete this page faster, and know exactly where I would place my photos and journaling tags.

The highlight of this page for me is the title tag with the cutest baseball bat wood veneer piece, and the photo of my daughter with the female mascot, Rosie, next to it.

I could not resist stamping a border of those cute baseballs from the Go Team stamp with water-based markers so that the stitching could be red! It's all in the details, right?

Another fun detail that I added was the red bakers twine knots on this "we won" wood veneer piece from the Go Team wood veneer. It only took an extra minute, and I love the way it looks at the top of my photo. 

You can see how all of these elements came together in my quick process video! In it, I'll show you how to create that baseball border, how I messed up while stamping my title tag (real life!), and how I put just the right amount of embellishment around my pages.

Thanks so much for watching and stopping by my blog today! I hope you're as excited about the new September release from Elle's Studio as much as I am! Be sure to grab up these goodies before they're gone—the August kit sold out weeks ago, so don't delay! You can also see all of the product that I used to create this pocket page in the shoppable gallery below. Happy creating!
