Using our September Course for Inspiration by Toni From

Happy Saturday! It’s hard to believe it’s already the weekend. Do you have any scrapping plans? Do you have a bunch of scrapbook pages, or pocket style pages that you want to catch up on? If any of this is ringing true for you, you should definitely read this blog post today – I have the solution for you.

Elle asked me to play along with the Exclusive September PDF Course this month, and I was more than happy to oblige. Did you know that Elle’s Studio now has a coordinating class to go with each and every monthly kit? You can find out more about the course HERE. I loved this course. The content and product photography were both stunning and informative. Information learned in this class can be used to give you inspiration for the current monthly kit, as well as inspire you in future Elle’s Studio kits and other creative endeavors. I highly recommend making it part of your purchase!

For my project today, I worked on a Project Life spread. I don’t know about you, but I got really behind in pocket scrapbooking over the summer. This course gave me some tips and tricks that really sped up the process for me, and allowed me to make sure I told the important stories.

For the left side of my pocket page layout I used a series of 3×4 photographs and journaling cards. I used three of the journaling cards to tell longer stories. The September Kitteal letter and number stickersLet’s Eat Wood Veneer, Let’s Eat Journaling Tags, and Thankful Journaling Tags worked perfectly for this week.

EllesStudio-ToniPL-02For the right side, I used 3 x 3 pockets and really like how this turned out. I trimmed down some of the 3 x 4 journaling cards by cutting off 1/2 inch from the top and bottom. The pie chart die cut from the September Kit was the perfect embellishment to add on top of a grid card I had in my stash. I used the pie chart as a jumping off point to hi light one key item for every person in our family this week.

I love adding embellishments and stamping to the journaling cards in the monthly kits. For the yellow journaling card (from the September kit), I added a little bit of this and that to make it a graphic statement. I used the Jordan outline and Jordan dots and stripes stamps, the heart die cut from the Exclusive September kit, and teal letter and number stickers. I also used a roller date stamp from my stash and a staple to hold my embellishment group together.

I Love the “(Blank) will always be my fav” tag (from the September kit) and found the perfect thing to use it for. This week in Project Life, marked the first week of school for us and a new super early schedule. (Like Zero Dark Thirty Early.) I found the Coffee Meme the first day of our new schedule on the internet and just screen captured it on my I phone, and later printed it to include this week. The letter and number stickers that spell out “coffee” and the coffee mug wood veneer from the Let’s Eat collection were just perfect for this pocket.

I hope you like what I shared with you today, and that it inspired you to create something with Elle’s Studio products.  I am now ready to do a few more projects inspired by the September Exclusive Course.

We would love to see what you are creating using Elle’s Studio products (both inspired by the course or otherwise.) Please post to our gallery or share via Instagram and tag your creation #ellesstudio.

Have a great weekend!  xoxox,  Toni
