Viva Las Vegas Traveler’s Notebook with Heather Leopard

So far, we’ve seen projects using our Let’s Go Traveler’s Notebook Kit that document city breaks, beach holidays, and everything in between! Let’s take a look now at how design team member Heather Leopard is documenting her trip to Last Vegas, in such an awesome way:
 
Hi there. It’s Heather Leopard here with a look at a few pages of a traveler’s notebook I’m creating about a recent trip to Las Vegas with our great friends. I’m using the Let’s Go Traveler’s Notebook Kit, which is perfect for practically any trip you need to document.  I also added in a few extra embellishments from recent monthly kits.
 

 
I wanted to kick off the Vegas vibe by incorporating lots of color and flash on the cover. I stamped “VIVA” on a tag using the Stanley Alphabet Stamp in both the outline and the solid, and then added “Las Vegas” using the navy cardstock alphas in the kit. I also added a few things to glam it up, like the wood veneer stars from the kit and the Gold Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers. Then, I wanted to tease out what happened on the trip so I added the “What Happened?” sticker and trimmed it down to fit on the arrow label.
 

 
The first set of inside pages highlights each of the activities we did while in and around Vegas. This wasn’t your ordinary Vegas trip though. While we did a smidge of gambling, we focused on the shows, the food and the great outdoors.
 

 
Here, you can see the highlights of all the stops we made.  I used the Hazel Alphabet Stamp to stamp the main attractions and the “Favorite Stops” paper in the kit was such a super idea for capturing these highlights.
 

 
I printed a collage of photos from each of the stops as one 4″x6″ photo and placed it on the opposite page. I added the “Oh the places we go” script paper along with leftover paper strips from another pattern and a few embellishments to complete the page.
 

 
This next spread features a few photos I wanted to highlight about the best show I’ve ever seen in Vegas. I chose one photo to highlight on each side of the spread and tucked the rest in a pocket.
 

 
Inside this diagonal pocket holds photos of all the amazingness that was part of the show. I cut the pocket so that the yellows would form a continuous line and help bring both pages together, then topped the paper with various coordinating labels and stickers.
 
I still have tons of photos to add to this traveler’s notebook.  I’ll be sure to post them to my Instagram and do a flip through on my YouTube channel so you can see how the rest of the book came together!

One Product, Three Ways: Everyday Phrases Stamp

One product can be viewed and used so different by our design team members, based on their design style! We know you’ll love how the three designers below, Meghann Andrew, Amanda-jayne Baldwin and Melissa Mann, are using our Everyday Phrases Stamp on their projects! Let’s take a look:
 
MEGHANN | I’ve been putting off documenting my week-intensive photo project for some time, and using the Everyday Phrases Stamp was just what I needed to spark an idea for how I can document this big project easily! I decided to break each day out in a separate color, keeping all of the product monochromatic. I grabbed the Everyday Phrases Stamps with the clear background to create my own custom 3″ x 4″ tags, which will be perfect for adding notes about the day I’m documenting.
 

 
Each tag was stamped with a different phrase in a separate color, creating a pattern at the top portion of the tag. To add more interest to the tags, I topped them with a Vellum Asterisk in the coordinating color.

I’ve already started documenting my week with these fun tags, and I know that using them alongside the monthly kit products and extras in the coordinating color will produce an awesome product!
 

 
AMANDA | I am so excited to be sharing the scrapbook element of this One Product, 3 Ways post! I love using stamps on my layouts! There are just so many awesome techniques you can use to really make your pages extra special!
 

 
Supplies | Everyday Phrases StampJuly 2018 Kit, Vellum and Wood Veneer Asterisks, Wood Veneer PhrasesPuffy Heart Stickers — Summer MixNoteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
Who would’ve thought that stamped words could have such impact! I’ve taken inspiration from the Vellum and Wood Veneer Asterisks in the July release, and repeat stamped in this asterisk style. It is such a fun way to create a background, and make the most of your stamp sets!
 

 
To emphasize the asterisk style, I also layered some of the Vellum and Wood Veneer Asterisks at the stamped asterisk centers. To compliment my seaside photograph, I used inks in sky blue, aquamarine, & cobalt to imitate the ocean. I also only used phrases that best told my story—so kinda forming some journaling too! Repeat stamping is such a fun technique to use to create both card and layout backgrounds! I hope I have inspired you to give this stamping technique a try today!
 

 
MELISSA | Hello, everyone! I created a greeting card using the new Elle’s Studio Everyday Phrases Stamp. I am often challenged by creating cards—I tend to make it much harder than it should be. When I picked this challenge this month to create a card featuring the new stamp set, I wanted to showcase the ENTIRE stamp set.
 

 
Supplies | Everyday Phrases Stamp, Shine 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Noteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
I came up with the idea to simply mount the entire sheet on an acrylic block and tape it down. I covered the stamps with a Versamark ink pad and stamped it onto the blue card stock. I then used white embossing powder to set the ink. This created a lovely, customized background for my card!
 

 
There are so many different ways to use this stamp set! I can’t wait to see what you create with it!

Documenting Pool Time Fun with Wendy Antenucci

Hello everyone, it’s Wendy here today to share how I’m documenting one of our favorite activities: pool time! The Pool Time Wood Veneer pieces that were introduced with the July Kit were perfect for our summer stories and that Jump Acrylic piece was the perfect title for an awesome layout!
 

 
Supplies | July 2018 Kit, July Labels, Dark Navy Cardstock Alphabet StickersVellum and Wood Veneer AsterisksWood Veneer PhrasesPool Time Wood Veneer, Puffy Heart Stickers – Summer Mix, Twinkle Puffy StickersJump AcrylicShine 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
My page began with the Jump Acrylic and the “awesome” 3″ x 4″ tag from the July Kit. I knew that these were the perfect pieces for the pictures I had taken of my boy killing our raft. I assembled my pictures in a stair-step fashion leading from the top to the bottom, just like the motion of the pictures. My title block nestled right into the arrangement which made a perfect home for it.
 

 
Once I had established the photo block I am so fond of creating, my next step was to add color and details which I accomplished through the fun 3″ x 4″ tags. Don’t you love those things? You can make a title with the tags, you can journal on your tags, you can add color and layers, and the list goes on!!!
 

 
To bring my layout up a notch, my next design decision was to add some water splashes. I chose a stencil that I had in my stash and some paint to match the “awesome” tag and dabbed on the splashes, finishing with a flick of spray in a darker teal color. The Vellum Asterisks were perfect additions to the splashy theme and I scattered a few more around the area.
 

 
I added three wood veneer pieces from the Wood Veneer Phrases and Pool Time Wood Veneer to form a visual triangle, drawing your eyes around the page and placing the pool floaty in the splash area. The “1-2-3 jump!” die-cut from the July Kit was perfect for adding to the bottom corner.
 

I just love the July Kit with all the special touches and I can’t wait to document more of our summer fun with the kit. Go make some memories so you can use your kit!
 

Welcome July Guest Designer Sabrina Poole!

We are so excited to welcome our July guest designer, Sabrina Poole! Sabrina is an Elle’s Studio subscriber who loves to document using lots of fun details, in full color, in her pockets, traveler’s notebooks, and planners! We know you will love what she has to share with you today, so be sure to check out her bio at the end of the post so that you can find out more about her, and see more of her work! Welcome to the ES blog, Sabrina!
 
Hi everyone! My name is Sabrina Poole and I’m thrilled to be the guest designer for July. This kit includes a wonderful mix of colors perfect for capturing all your summer memories!
 
For my first project I wanted to play with the stamps and pulled out the yellow journaling cards from the kit. I then realized the stamps, yellow cards and the red paper from the Shine 6×6 paper pack worked perfect with some photos of my children splashing in the water.
 

 
Supplies | July 2018 Kit, May 2018 KitJuly LabelsPuffy Heart Stickers — Summer Mix, Wood Veneer Phrases, Pool Time Wood Veneers, Hello Happy Puffy Words, Shine 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Highlight Stamp, Everyday Phrases Stamp
 

 
The asterisk on the “let’s have fun” tag inspired me to use the Highlight Stamp to make my own custom embellishments. I decided to use Susan’s trick of using the back of Elle’s Studio packaging for a place to stamp. I stamped a bunch of the asterisks in yellow and red ink to coordinate with the tags and 6″ x 6″ paper. I then fussy cut them and used a foam dot to add some dimension. I now had my own custom embellishments!
 

 
I then wanted to create two focal cards—one 4″ x 4″ and one 4″ x 6″—with the Shine 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack to tie layout together cohesively. I used the July Labels to stamp some sentiments from the Everyday Phrases Stamp, added a tag from the July 2018 Kit, some veneer pieces from the Pool Time and Wood Veneer Phrases, Puffy Heart Stickers and my custom embellishments. The final touch was using some of the Hello Happy Puffy Words to add boldness and contrast to the cards.
 

 
On the 4″ x 6″ tag, I added a strip of the red paper to give my layers a foundation. The orange heart, from the May 2018 Kit, was also added to ground the smaller puffy heart. With all the fun pieces from the July Kit and extras, the two focal cards have lots of fun layers!
 
I loved working with real stamps, putting together my own focal tags with the awesome kit pieces and using the bold yellow tags in this month’s kit! The whole spread was so fun to put together!
 

Hey. My name is Sabrina Poole and I live near Sacramento with my hubby and two children. Life is busy and chaotic in the best of ways. It makes documenting, creating and scrapbooking easy! I have been documenting since I started college (nearly 14 years ago!) and I continue to document even though my format has changed. I’ve always been drawn to how documenting with colorful products leads to life being preserved in a beautiful, memorable way.
 
Right now I document mostly hybrid and use digital products to make projects come to life. I always have several projects going at once and love my crafty time. I post most of my projects on Instagram and am just now starting my YouTube channel. So excited!
 
Sabrina will be sharing two more projects with us this month, using the July Kit and add-ons! Until then, see what she’s creating on her Instagram account

Use Your Scraps with Tracey Fox

With a new, exclusive kit releasing tomorrow, now is the time to use up your June Kit before your next box hits your doorstep! Tracey Fox is sharing a brand new layout below, and we know you’ll love how she made use of her die cut sheets to create something fun and new! Let’s see what she created:
 
Hi everyone! Today, I’m sharing a layout I made using just the leftover bits from my June 2018 Kit. I had already made three other layouts using the kit, but rather than file the kit’s leftovers away into my stash, I was excited to accept the challenge to see if I could make another page using just the kit and extras. This involved getting creative with my scraps!
 

 
Supplies | June 2018 Kit, Summer Wood Veneer FramesHello Happy Puffy Words, Bright Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, Shine AcrylicLet’s Relax StampHazel Alphabet StampNoteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
I love the die cut sheets that come in every monthly kit, but I had already used up nearly all of the die cuts by the time I got to this page. To stretch the die cut sheets even further and create more embellishments for my page, I grabbed my precision scissors and fussy cut out the colorful frames around the punched-out cuts. I arranged and adhered these on a black cardstock background, and I just love the contrast and how the colors pop on the page!
 

 
I filled in the arrangement of these bits with the few die cuts I did have left and some hearts punched from the patterns of the remaining tags in the kit. Since the die cut that said “summer” didn’t work for the subject of my layout, I turned it over and stamped on the white side using the Hazel Alphabet Stamp. I added my journaling to the white area on the rainbow 4″ x 6″ tag from the kit, cut it out, and adhered it to the top of the page. I then paired the rainbow portion of the tag with another 3″ x 4″ tag to create a mat for one of my photos.
 

 
For my other photo, I happened to have one of the Summer Wood Veneer Frames left. The words that were on it didn’t work for this layout, so I turned it over, painted it white, and glued the Shine Acrylic to it. I was so glad I still had the word “you” left from my well-used sheet of the Hello Happy Puffy Words, so I was able to complete the title “you shine.”
 

 
The Elle’s Studio monthly kits and extras are so versatile that I highly recommend becoming a monthly subscriber! It’s so fun to get playful with the current month’s kit and to try to use up every bit before the next one arrives! Thanks for stopping by today. I can’t wait to see how you use your scraps.

Getting Creative with the Chloe Alphabet Stamp and Nancy Damiano

We love our newest alphabet in the shop, the Chloe Alphabet Stamp! This fun font, in a perfect size for layouts, pocket pages or traveler’s notebooks, can be used for any kind of project! Today Nancy Damiano is sharing how she created a layout background using these awesome alpha stamps, and is sharing how easy it is to recreate for your own vacation documentation! Let’s take a look:
 
Hey there Elle’s Studio fans! It’s Nancy here today with a look at the Chloe Alphabet Stamp. I love the whimsical and bold look of this font, and have used it for several titles. Let’s do something a little bit different today and create a background pattern that can be customized for all of your summertime travels.
 

 
Supplies | Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers, Chloe Alphabet Stamp, Let’s Go Travelers’ Notebook Kit, Noteworthy Bits and PiecesNoteworthy 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
Start by using a ruler to lightly sketch out lines that are approximately 1” in width. This will help to keep the lines of stamped text perfectly straight. Use the Chloe Alphabet Stamp and black ink to stamp your destination word repeatedly all over the background.
 

 
To add a little bit of color and texture to the background, place a tiny puffy heart in the center of all (or most) of the x’s in the text. You could also use enamel dots or puffy stars to highlight one letter.
 

 
A small, stacked heart sewn in the center adds an interesting embellishment without overpowering the photo. Keep in mind that the bold background needs to be balanced out with smaller, subtle embellishments.
 

 
Get creative and customize this design for your story. Stamp the repeated text in perfectly stacked rows, in shapes or on a staggered diagonal. The Chloe Alphabet Stamp is both versatile and fun!
