Weekly Favorites with Guest Designer Jen Wong

How do you document your most favorite moments of the year? A layout, or a pocket page? That process can be time-consuming, so why not try to create a simple traveler’s notebook spread for each special memory? That’s what guest designer Jen Wong is sharing with us today, created using the new digitals from our shop! Let’s see how it came together.
Hi crafty friends! I’m excited to be back on the Elle’s Studio blog to share my second project with you using the September add-ons. One of the projects I’m working on this year is documenting a favorite memory every week in a traveler’s notebook. For my second project, I documented my favorite moment from Week 32: enjoying a picnic at the beach and watching the sunset with my family.

I love that Elle’s Studio offers coordinating digital files to completely customize your projects. The flexibility of digital files and the ability to use them over and over again makes them 100% worth it to me!
I selected several different shapes and sizes from the September Print and Cut Labels to use in my spread, changing a few of the colors to match the muted colors in my photos.

I also used a few of the images from the September 2018 Digital Cut File. I placed the dinner plate PNG image directly on one of the labels, which was easier than trying to mask the image out from the stamp set. I also resized the “Yum” and “Good Eats” images, printed them out, and used them as die cuts on the pages.
Having the digital files makes it easy to add journaling too, since I can directly add the text to the label before printing it out.

After printing and cutting out all of my labels and elements, I arranged them on the pages. I used the Right Now Stamp to add “On The Menu” and “Favorite Part” on a couple of the labels. I also used the Jane Alphabet Stamp to add a title to the long label.

Although I tend to keep my notebook spreads on the flat side (so I can eventually close the notebook!), I couldn’t resist adhering several of the cute puffy hearts from the Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers.
Thanks for checking out my project and I can’t wait to see what you are making with your latest Elle’s Studio goodies!

I’m Jen Wong and I live in San Diego with my family. I started scrapbooking several years ago as a way to document the traveling I was doing in mini albums. When my daughter was born, my desire to pair stories and photos together only intensified, and I started creating on a regular basis so I wouldn’t forget everything as the time flew by! I love how this hobby lets me tell the stories behind the photos and remember the everyday moments.
When I’m not playing with paper, I can be found developing software, swimming in the ocean, running up the trails, and spending time with my family. You can find more of my work on Instagram and on my blog!
Stay tuned for one more project from Jen coming to the blog next week! Until then, be sure to see what other favorite memories she has documented in her traveler’s notebook by following her Instagram feed!
