Halloween Treats with Maggie Massey

It doesn’t take much effort to make someone’s day, and using the new Halloween goodies found in the shop, a thoughtful and easy gift for a neighbor or friend is just a few minutes away! Today Maggie Massey is showing us just how simple gift-giving can be! 
 
Hey hey everyone! It’s Maggie here with a look at a fun little Halloween treat bag I put together using the Happy Halloween Journaling Tags, some patterned paper from the Family Fun Collection & the darn adorable Halloween Puffy Stickers!

I love creating little treat & gift bags to give to neighbors and friends during the holidays—it’s the perfect way to say “thank you,” “I’m thinking of you,” or “you’re the best for bringing my garbage bins in last Wednesday!”
 
I started by creating the bag itself using the Family Fun 12×12 Patterned Paper, and then I got down to the fun stuff. I layered up some of my favorite Happy Halloween Journaling Tags, which I had rounded the corners with a punch, punched a hole in the tops, and added a bit of ribbon. It could not have been easier!
 

 
I knew I wanted to add some of those awesome Halloween Puffy Stickers to my project, but I also wanted to do something a little different with them.
 

 
I chose my favorites and adhered them to a piece of white cardstock. Then I cut around each of them using small, sharp scissors. Next, I used a small sewing needle and some thread and sewed each little candy piece to a length of baker’s twine.
 

 
I wound the baker’s twine around my ribbon to create a fun tassel of puffy shapes and added some candy corn to the inside of my bag (my favorite!) and the goodie bag was done!
 

 
Now I just need to make a few more and I’ll be all set with little treats to hand out all October long.

Good Times with Mixed Media and Guest Vicki Boutin

We are excited to welcome Vicki Boutin back today to share another beautiful layout that combines our October exclusives, Family Fun collection and her signature mixed-media style. Let’s take a look at what she created for us this week!
 
I am super excited to be back again with my second project for October! I decided I wanted to create another scrapbook layout with a mix of the October Kit and add-ons, along with the Family Fun collection.

Vicki Boutin Mixed-Media Supplies | Set Two Art Crayons
 
I started with a mixed media background using my Vicki Boutin Art Crayons.
 

 
I used a simple “drag” technique with an old gift card.  Add the crayon to the card, add water with a paintbrush and drag the card across the page.  I also rubbed some of the crayon without water on the page.  This is a fun and easy way to add a little paint to your projects.  
 

 
Here is a closer look at the painted background.
 

 
I didn’t want to cover up the pretty painted background so, I cut a few leaves and an arrow using cut files and my Silhouette.  I love how the leaves add height, pattern and visual interest!  I stamped “hello” from the Days of the Week Stamp to tie in the orange.
 

 
The title is layered with the “good times” Family Fun Bits and Pieces, Family Fun Puffy Stickers and an October Label. Don’t forget foam squares!  I love 3D foam adhesive!
 

 
This page came together quite easily and it combines my loves: mixed media, patterns, color, good photos and great PRODUCT!  Love my Elle’s Studio!!!

 

Vicki Boutin has been paper crafting and documenting life with her husband and son and daughter since 2001.  She aspires to find time to create something everyday and she loves to play with paper, pocket scrapping, altered art, card making, stamping and photography. Layers and layers of inks, paints, stencils and stamps with a sprinkle of something shiny all culminate to create what Vicki likes to refer to as ECLECTIC FUNK. If it has layers, lots of color and it was fun to make than that’s where you will find this mixed media paper crafter!

Check back next week, when Vicki will share her last project with us as the October guest designer, but until then, you can find her on her YouTube channel, where she shares mixed-media techniques using her products!

A Thankful List with Jen Schow

We often think of autumnal pages in warm hues of orange, yellow and red, but today Jen Schow is showing us just how beautiful and perfect an unlikely color scheme can be. Plus, she has a process video to share with us. Let’s take a look at what she created!
 
Hey there! It’s Jen here to share another layout + process video with you using the October kit and coordinating extras. Autumn is by far my favorite season and I always like to create some sort of list of things I’m thankful for. The new products this month made that super easy!
 

 
Supplies: October 2017 Kit, So Cozy Stamp, Wood Veneer Leaves, Thankful Acrylic, Puffy Heart StickersFamily Fun 12 x 12 Paper Collection, Family Fun 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Title Builder Stamp
 
I don’t know about you, but I find myself taking photos of trees and leaves all the time, but not all of them necessarily have a story to go with them. A “thankful” or “currently” list is a great place to get photos like that used up, like I did here.
 

 
I combined the Thankful Acrylic with “this is my” from the Title Builder Stamp and my handwriting to create my title. I love when several elements come together like that.
 

 
I used the yellow plus sign tag from the October Kit as a jumping off point for my journaling and combined fall-ish things I was thankful for, like crisp air + cool sheets. It was a fun way to do a list and with plus signs being so trendy, it’s a great way to play off of that motif.
 

 
I finished with some Puffy Heart Stickers and a die cut heart from the kit, those gorgeous Wood Veneer Leaves, and a little paint splatter. I think that by adding in the yellow and woodgrain with all the blue, it gives the layout that cozy feel while still having a fresh look.
 
If you want to see how it all came together, check out my process video below!
 

Documenting Tasty Treats with Andrea Gray

Don’t forget to treat yourself every once in a while, and when you do, document it! That’s what Andrea Gray is doing today in her traveler’s notebook with the October 2017 Kit and add-ons. Let’s take a look at her page.
 
Hey friends!! I’m pretty sure we all have that treat we love so much. The one that you crave and savor each bite. Well those are the kinds of treats I not only like to enjoy, but I love to document those too!

 
Supplies | October 2017 Kit, So Cozy Stamp, October Labels, Live Laugh Love Wood Veneers, Family Fun CutoutsFamily Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
There’s a lot of green in the October 2017 Kit, so I took that as a sign to document a fave treat—mint chip brownie Larabar! I started with a piece of dark woodgrain paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection as the base and grabbed all the red and green dies cuts and labels from the kit and exclusive add-ons!
 

 
I turned the LIKE/DISLIKE journaling tag sideways (who says it has to be only one way?) then added my photo in the white space.
 

 
To add some color and fun to the bottom, I stamped the LOVE stamp twice without re-inking, overlapping the impression, then fussy cut them with some white cardstock around the edges. I love layers of stamps and labels!
 

 
I hope you’ve enjoyed this page and I hope you take this opportunity to photograph and document your favorite treat!

One Product, Three Ways: So Cozy Leaves and Wood Veneer Leaves

With so many new, fun products in the shop for the month of October, it was hard to choose just one… so we didn’t! We love the way that the leaves on the So Cozy stamp pair with the Wood Veneer Leaves that we challenged three designers, Laura Hager, Jamie Leija and Alissa Fast to pair these two products up on their projects. Let’s see what they created!

Supplies | October 2017 Kit, So Cozy Stamp, Wood Veneer Leaves, April Labels, October Labels, Autumn SequinsFamily Fun Blank Labels, Live Laugh Love Small Blank LabelsLetter and Number Stickers – Yellow, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Solid, Dated Stamp

Laura Hager | I was so excited about the autumn-themed products this month, but one of the downsides of living in Phoenix is missing out on the seasons changing. The leaves in the So Cozy Stamp and Wood Veneer Leaves are so cute and, luckily, so versatile! I might not get to experience the changing of the leaves, but it’s finally getting cool enough to plant my garden! My fiancé and I have been working hard to get the yard ready to enjoy in time for the cooler weather. I made this page to document that. I loved playing around with the leaf stamps.

To create a collage of leaves, I used two different colors of ink. To get even more variation, I stamped-off by inking up the stamp and then lightly stamping on a scrap piece of paper, then on to the tag. This ended up creating four different colors. I used the Stanley Alphabet Stamp to add text to the middle card, then I used a bunch of different labels to add captions to my photos. Lastly, I added some of the wood leaves to the page. I love how many different themes you can document with the leaf stamps and wood veneers. They are perfect for fall, spring or summer!

Jamie Leija | The awesome leaves on the So Cozy Stamp and Wood Veneer Leaves were perfect to pair alongside these photos from my day on the Great Wall of China. 

That day, the leaves were just changing from green to orange and yellow. I backed my photos onto the green patterned paper from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection to help them stand out. Then, I tucked the Wood Veneer Leaves  underneath and fussy-cut stamped leaves from the So Cozy Stamp under the photo mat. Splashing gold mist and adding in puffy dots from the Halloween Puffy Stickers helped add texture and dimension to the embellishment clusters.

Supplies | So Cozy Stamp, Wood Veneer Leaves

Alissa Fast | I love when Elle creates stamps and wood veneer to work together and these leaves are no exception. On the tag, I stamped the leaves from the So Cozy Stamp first, to create a cool layered effect under the Wood Veneer Leaves

When making tags, as cards, for my friends and family, I always like to coordinate a glassine bag to hold the tag and potential gift card. Here, I added the same washi tape to the bag as I did the tag before adhering the wood veneer leaf. A little stain or watercolors, washi tape and these stamps and veneer is all it took to create a super fun little gift that the recipient will love.

We can’t wait to see what you create with these fun leaves from the So Cozy Stamp and Wood Veneer Leaves! Be sure to share your project on Instagram with the hashtag #EllesStudio so that we can see you work! You could be featured here on the blog and win a gift certificate to the shop just for posting!

Mixed Media and the October Exclusives with Guest Designer Vicki Boutin!

We are over-the-moon excited to welcome our October guest designer, and one of our favorite creatives, Vicki Boutin, to the Elle’s Studio blog today! Vicki is going to spend the next three weeks with us sharing projects with our new October exclusive kit, add-ons and Family Fun collection, in her signature, beautiful mixed-media style. We can’t wait to show you her project today! Without further ado, let’s welcome Vicki!

Hey there! It’s Vicki here and I am so excited to be back as a guest designer for Elle’s Studio! I am a HUGE fan and love creating with Elle’s Studio’s colorful and graphic designs.

The new October 2017 Kit and add-ons are fabulous! I combined the stamps, stickers and journaling tags to create this fun layout with watercoloring techniques.

I planned this layout around the beautiful leaf stamps from the So Cozy Stamp and the Thankful Acrylic title. I knew I wanted to add color and a focal point for the title.

I painted a white sheet of cardstock with watercolor using Art Crayons from my collection, then stamped the leaves in black and cut them out. To create the background for the leaves, I scribbled on the “Saturday” stamp from the Days of the Week Stamp with a blue Art Crayon, misted it with water and stamped the repeated pattern. The circle “love” and “play” words from the So Cozy Stamp and tiny circles from the Halloween Puffy Stickers make perfect embellishments!

I knew I wanted to use white cardstock for the base of my page and I was worried that the Thankful Acrylic title would get lost. Solution: I added Texture Paste through a stencil and added watercolor on top! I love how this turned out! I secured the title with some twine stitches.

Here is a closer look…

The rest of the layout came together with layered journaling tags from the October 2017 Kit, a mat of patterned paper from the 12″ x 12″ Family Fun Paper Collection and die cuts.

These Vellum Speech Bubbles are the best! The color is so saturated and they add the perfect “pop” on the page!

This kit and the add-ons do not disappoint! Great big, bold designs that work perfectly with a kiss of mixed media! Love it!

Pattern Play with Family Fun and Nancy Damiano

Patterned paper is typically what we begin with when we create a layout, and today DT member Nancy Damiano is illustrating how beautiful your layout can be when the Family Fun collection patterns are front and center on your layout design! Let’s take a look at what she created.
 

 
Supplies | Thankful Sticker Labels, Family Fun Bits and Pieces, Family Fun Puffy Stickers, Family Fun Stamp, Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
Hey there Elle’s Studio fans, it’s Nancy here today with a look at the Family Fun collection. This collection has a beautiful, bold palette with family themes that can be used for many different types of pages. My favorite part though, is the patterned paper. On this layout I used as many different ones as I could! Let’s get started with a bold patterned base of wide, colorful stripes from the 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection!
 

 
The center of the layout is a nice clean slate of white which allows the patterns to shine! The title word, “together,” from the Family Fun Puffy Stickers is layered across the photos and onto some of the patterned circles. This ties the design together.
 

 
The center of the layout is filled with patterned circles from the 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack punched to 2-1/2”, 1-3/4”, 1” and 1/4” sizes. Some of the circles are layered by cutting two different patterns and combining them in one circle. Two Family Fun Puffy Stickers with the sayings, “the best part,” and “there’s no place like home,” were also used to highlight these circles. The circles are scattered through the center, creating an eclectic look. The smallest 1/4” circles were embellished with tiny enamel dots, giving them weight and adding texture to the layout.
 

 
The journaling was printed onto white cardstock and adhered onto a die cut tag from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces, which was placed on a slight diagonal from the title and label sticker subtitle. This makes it look as if the words are cascading down the design.
 

 
This is a bold and colorful layout filled with delicious, colorful pattern! Try bits and pieces of the Family Fun patterned papers to tell your favorite stories!
 
Be sure to share how you’re using the Family Fun patterned papers with us by using the hashtag #EllesStudio on Instagram! Your project could be highlighted here on our blog and you could win a $10 gift certificate to the shop, just for sharing!
