Hi Elle’s Studio friends & fans! It’s Amanda here for my first official post as part of the new 2018 Elle’s Studio design team, and boy-oh-boy, am I excited! The January Kit and extras have been nothing short of exceptional, and I just couldn’t wait to create with them! I hope you will feel inspired by the 12″ x 12″ layout I’m sharing with you today.

Supplies | January Kit, Love You Die Cuts, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, Star Chipboard Stickers, Enamel Dots, XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
Oh isn’t this something?! There is nothing like a large, bold title to make your pages ‘pop’! That incredible die cut title, “I Love You More Than All The Stars In The Sky,” is from the Love You Die Cuts, and is a perfect sentiment for my sweet boy!
As my handsome subject is looking to the right, I have used a right alignment on my layout to ensure visual flow and ‘ease on the eye’ from a design aesthetic.
You’ll spy those gorgeous XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack patterns lining the right side of my layout. To give the appearance of a strip of 12 inch paper, I have used the patterns where you don’t really notice the ‘join’ at the 6 inch mark. Stripes and simple patterns are best for this option. I have also distracted away from the paper join by partially covering it with cotton thread from my stash and paper layers from my photo cluster.
And while we’re talking papers, how good is that color combination?!

The mint, red & white background really allows the bold, black title to be a standout feature. To add further emphasis, I applied foam tape to my title, creating dimension & interest.
I use more of the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack patterns to layer beneath my photo, as well as tags, die cuts and labels from the January Kit.

I embellished my photo cluster with Star Chipboard Stickers, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers and “My #1” from the Love You Die Cuts. So many lovely layers and details here!

As my layout is totally inspired by my darling and that title, it seemed only fitting to feature hearts and stars in my background. I took inspiration from Nursery decor, and created a ‘mobile’ look with sewn lines, Enamel Dots, Star Chipboard Stickers and die cut hearts from the January Kit and Love You Die Cuts.

I just love how this turned out! So simple and yet, oh so striking!

Beautiful photo, beautiful products = layout bliss! There you have it—my inspirational layout you to get creating with our January Kit!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
