Our July kit with special guest Jamie Waters

By now, you should have had some time to play with your July kit, and we hope you are in love with the bright, fun colors, which coordinate so perfectly with the Sunny Days collection. Today, we’re excited to share another project by Jamie Waters – an amazing layout that captures the joy of summer using Sunny Days and the July exclusives. Let’s take a look:

Sometimes when you have great product sitting on your desk, you just have to use as much of it as you can on a layout- especially when you have a standout photo to document that requires no words at all.

EllesStudio-JamieWaters-06Supplies | Sunny Days 12” x 12” paper collection, Sunny Days 6” x 6” paper stack, Sunny Days bits and pieces, Sunny Days word labels, Sunny Days puffy stickers, Documented stamp, Noteworthy stamp, Shine Bright stamp, Star Circle acrylics, vellum hearts, acrylic stars- summer mix  

This gorgeous photo, printed in black and white became the perfect central focus for a radiation of embellishment, with just a few supplies! By cutting apart elements from the ‘More Sunshine’ 12” x 12” paper, mixing in the Sunny Days bits and pieces and adding strips of 6” x 6” patterned paper, an entire background can be filled, using the ‘More Stars’ sunburst background paper as a guide.

To add varying texture, a few acrylic stars and vellum hearts filled in spaces between the paper elements, which all emanated from this summery photo.


EllesStudio-JamieWatersI took a break from scrapbooking after a very consistent 10 years. After 3 years of my hiatus, I longed for the craft and the process. My children who were once young when I used to scrapbook are now teenagers- I have a 10 year old, a 15 year old, a 17 year old and a 21 year old. We recently got our family’s first puppy whom we all adore to pieces! I teach at Big Picture Classes and Studio Calico. I contribute at the Paislee Press and Kelly Purkey teams each month. I love good food that I don’t have to cook, pretty design and paper, naps, romcoms and perfect 75 degree days.
