Spring Break Wanderings with Suzanna Lee

It’s that time of year—spring break time! Whether you hit the beach, do a city break, or stay at home for some R&R, our Wander Stamp has a ton of illustrations and phrases on it to help you document your adventures! Let’s take a look at how design team member Suzanna Lee used it to create a new layout!

Happy spring Elle’s Studio fans! Did you go away for spring break or enjoy a leisurely staycation? We did a whirlwind visit out to the opposite coast. This is Suzanna here today to share with you a “summary” page of our spring break week with this month’s aptly named featured stamp, Wander, as the highlight of the layout.

Can you believe that there is one and ONLY one piece of patterned paper used in the creation of this layout! Pretty amazing given the explosion of color in the layout! The remainder of the layout is comprised of stamped images and labels! Oh, and literally, the largest block of journaling I have ever put on a layout. I was pretty proud of myself for that, AND six photos.

I didn’t even use half of the stamps in the Wander Stamp, but I sure felt like I used a lot of them! The monthly stamps are such great value for money when you look at all the options and possibilities—so much versatility in the available uses! This is just one option: stamping directly on the page. I toyed with stamping the smaller sized butterflies, fussy cutting them and then layering them on the larger butterflies. The only reason I didn’t was because then I wouldn’t have a place to put the awesome Days of the Week Phrase Stickers.

The words “wander” and “explore” were great subtitles for our spring break week and could be used in many other ways. You could do as I did and incorporate the stamped word into a title, or stamp repeatedly to create a background. There are so many great uses for these stamps, the sky is the limit! I stamped the words in black at the bottom of the page to tie the bottom of the layout to the black and white photos at the top of the layout, creating some balance.

I hope you are inspired to check out the Wander Stamp released this month with the April kit and extras. If you have purchased it and used it, do be sure to share your creations so we can see how you have used this amazing stamp set! If you would like, I have a process video showing you how this layout came together over on my personal YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping in today!
