Elle's Studio May Kits and Add Ons

I have to say like all other months, I am loving the kits and new types of add ons this month.  Here are some screenshots of the products:

Here's the main kit. Gorgeous colors and patterns as always. I love the practical and at the same time beautiful products in these kits.

Here are the awesome add ons. Look at the gold heart puffy stickers and the gold acrylic. They are so fun to use. I used them along with the kraft tags on one of my layouts. They are such a fun combination.

Here are the digitals:

And absolutely new this month are the travelers notebook kit. This is such an awesome kit to document a fun vacation or adventure. I can't wait to use this kit to document one of our trips.
Here is what I was inspired to create this month. I had so much fun creating them. For the first layout, I used photos of my little niece trying read a book and using her dog as a backrest. So cute. Here is the layout:

I chose the pastel colored cards in the main kit to create a grid design with the photos. And I love those puffy heart stickers so much. I used the add on stamp set to stamp the heart with the circle of dots around it. I then used die cuts to embellish the layout. I also cut apart a journal tag from the journal tags set and wrote my journaling on it. If you want to watch a quick two minute hyper lapse video of how this layout came together, you can find it on my YouTube channel here:

Here is my second layout. I really wanted to use the gold acrylic and the gold puffy heart stickers on this one. I also wanted to use the kraft tags as a mat for the photos. I loved mixing up the textures for this layout. I also added some gold Heidi Swapp mist on the background and add some gold thread to each of the tags. Another favorite for me is to write with the white gelly roll pen on the kraft tag.  

This is a layout of my boys having a good time at the zoo when we visited Fort Wayne. Here is another hyper lapse process video that I made and you can see it on my YouTube channel here:

April Kits and Add Ons from Elle's Studio and Noteworthy Collection

Month after Month and year after year, I am blown away by the beautiful products from Elle's Studio. I fall in love with the colorful and well thought out products each month. This month is so very special because Elle's Studio also a launched a very special new collection called Noteworthy. Here is a link to all the new arrivals at Elle's Studio

I first want to share with you the projects that I made with these products.

For the first project, I mostly used the Noteworthy collection. I used both the 12x12 papers and 6x6 papers for the big corner. One of my favorite with every release are the patterns on the 6x6 papers. I also used the puffy stickers from the noteworthy collection. Aren't those butterflies absolutely adorable!?! Just like my niece in this photo. The title has been cut out from one of the 12x12 papers with words on it. It's perfect. The journal mat for the photo is from the 6x6 paper pad. I also used some die cuts at the top and bottom of the layout. The size of this layout is 9x12. Over the past few months, I am limiting myself to 9x12 and 6x8 projects. There is also a very pretty ephemera pack that comes with the noteworthy collection. I used most of the circles from this pack at the bottom of the photo. I stamped the date with the mini date stamp. I love this size. I also stamped at the bottom right corner to balance out the color with stamps from the noteworthy stamp set.

For my second project, I made a pocket page spread. I mainly used the April kit for this spread and supplemented it with the products from the noteworthy collection. Can you believe that my 7 year old loves to read all about the presidents of the United States. He knows so much that it is mind blowing. I have learnt a lot through this experience myself. And I am amazed with what I learn about their lives and the obstacles some of them had to overcome to get where they are. It's all so very inspiring. I am glad that my little boy is reading all this early in his life. Okay that was a digression but I so wanted to document this story and the noteworthy collection along with the April kit was perfect for that. I love all the die cuts and colors in the kit. One of my favorites from the Noteworthy collection are the enamel circle stickers. Also as an add on this month are the wood veneer tabs. I used the reading tab for this project.

Here are the products that were released this month. Make it a point to stop by the Elle's Studio shop:

March Add ons

March Digitals

Here are the projects that I made with these products. This month I used the cut files for both my projects. They are so adorable and awesome.

I went back in time to find photos to make this pocket page about an easter egg hunt in 2007 with my son and his friends. I loved the bunnies in various forms in the products this month so much. They are so cute. I typed on a bunny shaped die cut for my journaling. It was fun. I have punched holes in it to put it in my album. I have used the journal cards and die cuts from the kit and add ons. I also love the stamp and used it to stamp my title. I also made a secondary title with the puffy alpha stickers. I travelled back it time while making this spread and now I look at my 13 year old and wonder how all these years just flew by. How much he has grown.

For this spread, I wanted it to be a rainbow of color. I used two of the cut files, the rainbow and the stars. I filled the rainbow with the gorgeous puffy stickers and backed the cut out stars with a paper from the 6x6 paper stack from the Live Laugh Love collection. I then stamped on labels and stuck them on the top left. In the bottom right I used some die cuts from the kit. With this layout, I wanted to show how colorful and happy our lives are because of this little boy.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects and if you have do leave me a comment as it will make my day! Affiliate link to all the new arrivals at Elle's Studio is here:

February kits from Elle's Studio

Finally it is the reveal time for the Elle's Studio February kits. I love the beautiful colors and amazing add ons in this kit. So far I have made two projects with these kits and stay tuned for more.
Here is the beautiful monthly February kit. I love all the hearts and the the card with the purple flowers.

Here are the digitals. I used the hearts cut file for one of my projects.

Here are the add ons. Love the colors in the puffy stickers. All that wood veneer and chipboard speech bubbles are awesome too! How fun is the stamp set!?! You can create your own cards with it.

And now for the projects that I made. After a few months of mostly making pocket page projects, it was a lot of fun to make scrapbook layouts.
Here is the first layout. I used the cut file and the xoxo 6x6 paper pad for this project.

This is a photo of my cute niece crawling around in the grass at the zoo. There was this lady who was blowing bubbles for her kid. She saw me clicking Anika's photos and started blowing the bubbles in her direction. I love this photo of the cutie. I modified the cut file to cut only half the 12x12 page and backed it with Live Laugh Love and XOXO patterned papers. I then added the gorgeous heart puffy stickers to some of the cut hearts. I also used the Love You die cuts and the die cuts from the February kits to embellish the layout. 

Here is my next layout. I love this photo of my son and his little cousin. He loves her so much. My journaling is a little story about how all of us love her. I used a 6x4 card from the kit and cut a 3x4 card and placed it on either side. I backed the layout with a patterned paper from the family fun collection. I also used the chipboard speech bubbles, die cuts from the kit. I added the puffy stickers all around the photo. They are perfect for this photo.

Hope you enjoyed checking out my projects. You can find the new products at Elle's Studio shop here:
