We love that the Elle’s Studio monthly kit and add-ons allow you to get as creative as you want in your time—either pop some coordinating tags and die cuts into a pocket and call it a day, or spend more time to stamp, die cut and embellish! Today, design team member Marsha Farris is showing us how we can get a bit creative using some of our newest products, and document your memories in a beautiful way! Let’s take a look!
Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha, and I’m excited to be back to share a new traveler’s notebook layout. For my project today, I used the April 2020 Kit and extras to create a spread documenting a fun family weekend.
Supplies | April 2020 Kit, Basic Grid Journaling Tags, Life Right Now Stickers, Lovely Puffy Stickers, Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Spring Wood Veneers, Good Times Wood Veneer, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, Springtime Tabs Stamp, Everyday Tabs Metal Die
As soon as I saw the new Springtime Tabs Stamp, I knew I wanted to use it in a big way on my layout. To begin the spread, I used the “good times” sentiment stamp from the stamp set along with some light gray ink to stamp a repeat pattern diagonally across the Good Times Wood Veneer. I love how this adds interest to the already amazing wood veneer!
Next, I chose a few journaling tags from the April Kit, along with papers from the Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, and used the Everyday Tabs Metal Die to cut out lots of tabs. I also stamped some tabs from the Springtime Tabs Stamp and cut them out using the die. Then, I stamped several sentiments from the set onto the tabs. I used die cuts from the April Kit and stickers from the Lovely Puffy Stickers and Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers to embellish the tabs.
I began assembling my layout by adding the tab pieces across the top and bottom edge of a white cardstock base, layering them so that the sentiments were visible and the colors were spread around the page. I added my photo and layered stickers from the Lovely Puffy Stickers and Life Right Now Stickers to the edge of the photo.
Below the photo, I added the Good Times Wood Veneer to serve as the title and embellished with a puffy heart from the Lovely Puffy Stickers.
For the left side of the spread, I used a pocket page with two 3″ x 4″ pockets. I added another one of the tab pieces to the top of a Basic Grid Journaling Tag. Next, I added a wood veneer piece from the Spring Wood Veneers and handwrote my journaling. For the final pocket, I used a tag from the April Kit and embellished it with another tab and a sentiment sticker from the Lovely Puffy Stickers.
I love how this layout turned out using the versatile Springtime Tabs Stamp, along with the gorgeous April 2020 kit and add-ons. I hope I have inspired you to get crafty using your new Elle’s Studio supplies!
