Hi Elle’s friends! It’s Wei Wei here, and I’m happy to be here to share my layout using the September 2021 kit and add-ons! This kit is full of so many beautiful colors and patterns—perfect for documenting fall memories! Let’s take a look!
Supplies | September 2021 Kit, Autumn Die Cuts, Banner Stickers, Gray Cardstock Basic Shape Stickers, Gray Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Autumn Puffy Hearts, Gold Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Banners, Wood Veneer Leaves, Thankful Paper Stack, Home Sewn Stitches Stamp (click “noiify me”), Thankful Stamp, Layered Card Metal Die
I began by making paper frames. First I grabbed two beautiful papers from the Thankful Paper Stack and cut out the frames with Layered Card Metal Die.
Then, I placed my frames across the white page and attached them with adhesive.
I placed my photo in the middle and layered it with the yellow, stitched September 2021 Kit journaling tag. The gorgeous Autumn Die Cuts are my favorite add-on this month. They were perfect for my photo and made it so easy to create a beautiful layout. I creased the autumn leaves. I love the texture and dimension this simple step adds. Then, I arranged clusters of leaves on top and bottom of my photo.
To balance my layout, I added the cluster of leaves onto the upper left and the lower left corner. The cluster of leaves above the upper left corner consisted of Autumn Die Cuts and Wood Veneer Leaves. I also added the little heart circle label and red banner, also from Autumn Die Cuts.
The journaling boxes around the outer frame edges were trimmed from the September Kit “feeling, thinking, embracing” journaling tag, which gave me spaces for my journaling. I stamped phrases from the Thankful Stamp as well.
Then, I added some stitched stamping from the Home Sewn Stitches Stamp on the edges and corners, varying the type of stitch stamps for interest. I also filled in the empty spaces between the frames using the same stamp to get more texture. To finish my layout, I used the Gray Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers to build my title “autumn”.
That’s all I have for today. We’d love to see how you use those September kit and add-ons. Join the Elle’s Studio Facebook Group where you can add your projects to the discussion board, or share on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio!
