When was the last time you went through an entire, normal day in your life and documented every activity that you did? Our April guest designer, Rachel O’Neal did that on a new layout using our latest products, and she’s back to share it with us today! Let’s take a look.
Hello friends! I’m back again and ready to share my second layout with you using the Elle’s Studio April Kit and extras! I was inspired to use the journaling tags to create a layout about what a Tuesday looks like for us.
Supplies | April 2019 Kit, On This Day In March Journaling Tags, Hazel Alphabet Stickers – White, Puffy Icon Stickers, Spring Puffy Stickers, Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Love This Wood Veneer, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Mini Dated Stamp
My base is a piece of bright white 12″ x 12″ cardstock. I chose six journaling tags–five from the April Kit and one from the On This Day In March Journaling Tags. Since I have a plain white background, I decided to add a second layer underneath the tags, using papers from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack. I love having these paper stacks on hand because they are always so versatile!
Now it was time to start filling out all the details of our day. I started with breakfast because that’s a pretty important start to the day, right?! I used the white Hazel Alphabet Stickers for the titles on each card. I loved using these across the tops of each card because they added cohesion to the whole layout. I journaled a couple of short sentences and then used the Mini Dated Stamp to document the day.
All of my photos are small at 2″ x 2″—the perfect size for documenting each part of our day and including them on each tag. Tip: I use the app PicFrame on my phone to create a 4″ x 6″ inch photo collage. This allows me to print all four of the photos on one regular size 4″ x 6″ photo.
After breakfast we hit the gym and then went on to piano and school. One of my favorite embellishments that I used were the Puffy Icon Stickers. These bright-colored, round stickers come with so many symbols that represent parts of our day—tea (or coffee mug) and music notes in particular.
At 12 PM it’s lunch so I decided to use the “love this” wood veneer because making it to lunch time is pretty great! Once I filled out each journaling tag. I arranged them grid style towards the bottom of the page making sure I had enough room for my large title.
I started my title with the Large Jane Alphabet Stamp. I took my favorite patterned paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack–a gorgeous ombre teal with grid lines–and stamped the word TUESDAY out. I let the ink dry for a couple minutes and then fussy cut the letters for my tile with small, sharp scissors. I used tape runner to adhere them above my journaling tags. Then I used the Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers to finish the title. Last, but definitely not least, I added my favorite embellishment above the title—the puffy rainbow sticker from the Spring Puffy Stickers.
I hope I’ve inspired you to use these Elle’s Studio products in a new and fun way. Thank you for stopping by today!
