August Scrap Challenge with Mary-Ann Maldonado

Our September Kit reveal is only one day away, so why not get some inspiration from design team member Mary-Ann Maldonado to combine colors and textures to not only create something fantastic this weekend, but also use up what you have left of your August 2019 Kit and extras! Let’s take a look at what she created!

Hello Elle’s Studio fans! Today, I am going to use up most of my scraps from my August 2019 Kit and add-ons! If you are a kit subscriber, you know there is not usually much left after we get done creating all of the cards, layouts, pocket pages and more that we can with the monthly kit! My challenge was to create a layout with what I did have left and here is what I came up with:

Supplies | August 2019 Kit, August 2019 Digital Cut Files, Be Yourself Phrase Stickers, Back to School Puffy Stickers, Makes Me Smile Cork Circles, Days of the Week Wood VeneersTGIF Wood Veneers, Acrylic Sunglasses, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I started by cutting the “Fun Times” design from the August 2019 Digital Cut Files twice and layered them together on my Noteworthy Paper Collection base, adding a subtle shape to the background to create interest and mix patterns!

Next, I scattered the Makes Me Smile Cork Circles and the Days of the Week Wood Veneers around the circle. Spacing them out into a triangle forces the eye around the page and also creates balance.

To continue on the radial axis that I started with the cut file, I combined die cuts from the August 2019 Kit, Be Yourself Phrase Stickers, colorful Back to School Puffy Stickers, TGIF Wood Veneers, and sunny Acrylic Sunglasses to add different textures and dimension.  I placed these around in a circle around the pinked circle cut file, adding dimensional adhesive to some of the elements. It is so fun to combine all of these textures and colors!

To use of what I had left in my kit, I even cut my journaling tags! These cute and colorful pencils came from one of the 4″ x 6″ tags from the August 2019 Kit, and they worked perfectly on this page instead of being unused in my stash!

I highly recommend combining all of the fabulous textures and coordinated colors from the August 2019 Kit and add-ons to create something special before your September 2019 Kit arrives!
