Five on Friday with Marsha Farris

Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha, and I’m excited to be here today sharing a fun and colorful traveler’s notebook layout for Five on Friday! It was quite a challenge to use only five products from the May 2021 kit and add-ons because there are so many amazing goodies in this month’s release!

Supplies: May 2021 Cut Files, Puffy Banners and Border Stickers, Cork Words, Good Times Paper Stack, Fun with Borders Stamp

To begin the project, I resized “this” from the May 2021 Cut Files to serve as the title for my layout and cut it out with my digital die-cutting machine and white cardstock. Using cut files is such a great way to stretch your supplies and make a big impact on your layout! I chose to back the cut file with a striped patterned paper from the Good Times Paper Stack. I backed each letter separately, so all of the colors were represented.  One of the Cork Words was perfect to complete the title.

I used a heart from the May 2021 Cut Files and patterned paper from the Good Times Paper Stack to cut out a few hearts to use on the spread.  I layered Puffy Banners and Border Stickers over the heart and used stamps from the Fun with Borders Stamp to add journaling lines and detail stamping to both clusters on the page.

For the other side of the layout, I printed my photo at 5 x 8.25 inches to fit as a full page in the album. I love using photo enlargements in my traveler’s notebook.  It is the perfect way to feature a favorite photo! On the negative space at the top of the photo, I layered the “good times” Cork Word over one of the hearts I created earlier using the cut file.  I embellished the page simply with the Fun with Borders Stamp and a sticker from the Puffy Banners and Border Stickers.

I  hope you are inspired to play along with Five on Friday! Join in by selecting only five products to use on your next project! Be sure to share with us using the hashtag #EllesStudio on Instagram or in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group. We can’t wait to see what you create!
