February Kits and Add Ons from Elle's Studio

I love everything that is included in the February kits from Elles Studio. Plus the add ons are just gorgeous. Elles Studio kit goes live every month on the 10th at 8 A.M PST. Elle's Studio monthly kit subscription option is available to those who want to be guaranteed a kit each month, you can lock in the launch day special price of $9.99, and receive FREE (USA) or reduced (International) shipping on anything added to their box each month on the 10th.
Here are some images of the kit and add ons. 


February Kit


February Digitals


February Add Ons


As you can see, the colors are so awesome. Everything goes so well with each of the other elements.  

Now here are my projects. For the first project, I created a 9x12 layout of my son and the stuffed toy that every kid in his preschool class got a chance to take home. And yes, the name of the stuffed elephant happened to be Elle.





For this layout, I used a bunch of cards of cards and die cuts from the feb kit. I also used the digital cut files to cut out the Hello speech bubbles and backed them with a card from the kit. I then stamped the title with the Malia lowercase stamp. I also love those acetate circle hearts from the Feb add ons. The colors are all so pretty.

For my next project, I wanted to make a different type of project instead of a layout. I made an accordion fold album about my younger son. He is such a goofball and such a cutie. I love the current stage he is in so much. He makes us all laugh all the time.

Here are images from the project. The size of each page is slightly larger than 4x3. I tried to stick to a color scheme of yellow, grey and orange. I loved the outcome.

The title page: That wood veneer from the add on is awesome.


First page: I love the stars card from the Feb kit. I stamped the word 'REMEMBER' from thea dd on stamp set. I typed my journaling on the card. The currently word is from the digitals. I changed the color to grey.


Second Page: The speech bubble stickers and wood veneer stars from the Feb add ons are so cute.


Third page: I sure do love me some bulleted journaling. Again using some digitals here and that star again.



Fourth page: I changed the purple colored dialogs to yellow in the digitals to go with my color scheme. I so love this simple page.



Fifth page: Again, typing my journaling on a card from the feb kit and used some die cuts and digitals.


Last Page: How cute is this hearts card fro the Feb kit!?! I stamped the date:, subject: with black ink and typed the date and my son's name.


Here is the completed accordion book. I love the outcome. I also love the grey, orange and yellow colors throughout this project.


I really love how you can extend the use of the kit with the digitals.

18th Anniversary!

Hi Everyone! Today is our 18th marriage anniversary! I can't believe where and how time flies. So it is very fitting that I am up on the Elle's Studio blog with a project celebrating this. The January kit is simply awesome to document this!

For this project, I loved using a whole bunch of digital files - the cut files and the printables. Do check them out.

Here is a peek of the project. Do stop by Elle's Studio for more details on the project.


Below are links to the products used in this project:

Elle's Studio January Kit Projects

I am still not over the fact that Elle asked me to be on the Design team for Elle's Studio. So January Kit went live today. I am working mainly with this kit and extras for these projects. I love how versatile this kit is. It prompted me to create two very different themed projects. 

For the first project, I decided to list my top ten goals for the year 2017. It is very simple layout that conveys the message. I used a large photo of me in the background and stamped the word goals directly on the photo. For not being the best stamper, that is pretty brave for me. I am in love with the Jonah Stamp. I know I am going to be stamping way more and improving this skill this year. I love all the stamps that the Elle's Studio carries. Stay tuned for more projects with stamping. The card on which I wrote my goals is from the January kit and the background striped paper is from the Little Moments collection. Also make sure you get your pack of sequins. The colors coordinate with the kit so well. 




For the second layout, I decided to go way back in time. I am not sure why, but the card that says "You are so very loved" totally reminded me of this photo of my boy when he was about 7 months old. I just absolutely had to use this photo. Over time, I have learnt to ignore that pinks are for girls only. I don't care - I will use pink for boys and blue for girls. I have two boys and these days I seem to be using pinks on their layouts without hesitation :). On this layout I mainly used the cards from the January kit. The wood veneer and the stickers are from the January extras and they all coordinate so well.





Hope you enjoyed both my layouts and will get yourself some of these awesome products. Just remember that Elle's Studio has a subscription option available to those who want to be guaranteed a kit each month, lock in the launch day special price of $9.99, and receive FREE (USA) or reduced (International) shipping on anything added to your box each month on the 10th. Isn't that an awesome deal!?! Below are links and images of the products I used for these layouts!

Design Team Member for Elle's Studio

A very happy new year to you all. I am so happy that the new year is starting off with some great news in my scrapbooking journey. I am so proud to announce today that I will be on the Elle's Studio design team for 2017. I have been a huge fan of Elle's Studio products for a long time, the stamps, the  kits and the collections. I am so looking forward to working with all the lovely products. They work so well with my style of scrapbooking and memory keeping.

I have admired the work of so many of my fellow design team members for so many years. I am pinching myself to believe that I will be really designing alongside them.  I am so grateful for this opportunity.
