January Kit Greetings with Wendy Antenucci

Our filler and journaling tags featured in each month’s exclusive kit are so versatile for all of your paper crafting projects, and today we have design team member Wendy Antenucci with us to share how she layered up her tags to create beautiful greeting cards! Let’s take a look.
 
How about a few cards today? It’s Wendy here today to share some quick and easy cards that I created with the January kit and add-ons. I love the 3″ x 4″ tags from the kit and use them in all of my creative projects—layouts, pocket pages, cards, anything! Since I have such a love for these tags, it makes sense (to me) to start off a smaller project, such as a card, by choosing fun tags from the January 2018 Kit for the greeting, to set the colors, and add some pattern.
 

 
Supplies | January 2018 Kit, Star Chipboard StickersWood Veneer Love Tags, Hugs and Kisses Puffy StickersFamily Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
The first tag that I used, “kind heart,” was chosen because I loved the simplicity of the tag. Because of the simple design, I chose a red chevron pattern from the Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack to mat my tag onto. I also like to use doilies often as they add a little touch of frill (and I really like them!)
 

 
To add some fun to my card I chose to tie some twine and a Wood Veneer Love Tag onto my card. Tip: To keep the twine from moving all over I taped it down on the back of the tag. I also didn’t want the tag moving so I added a foam square under the tag to hold it in place.
 

 
My next card was created by layering two tags from the January Kit, one 3″ x 4″ and one 4″ x 6″, which I cut down to fit my card. I added a few die cuts from the kit to further dress up the card, but the finishing touches were the Star Chipboard Stickers and the Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers. Did you notice that all of the elements lead your eyes around the card and the saying?
 

 
Who do you need to send a card to today? The January 2018 Kit makes this a simple and easy task, have fun!
 

Documenting Love in Pockets with Andrea Gray

Hello there sweet friends! Today I am sharing some pocket page inspiration using the January Kit + extras! There are so many fun little products in the shop this month that I decided to use the page protector with twelve 2″ x 2″ squares, so I could show them all off!
 

 
Supplies | January 2018 Kit, Love You Die Cuts, Black Cardstock Alphabet StickersHugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Love Tags, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 StampXOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
Since this month’s kit is all about love, the theme of this page is my love for I Love Lucy. I’ve had several little random photos from the show that I wanted to use and this kit was PERFECT for documenting them! The tiny pockets hold the lovely banners, arrows, hearts and die cuts from this month’s new product selection in such a perfect way!
 

 
Simple, white cardstock created the perfect clean backdrop to make black and white photos from the show and colorful embellishment pop against the page, like the fun, patterned banners and die cuts from the January 2018 Kit.
 

 
The “My #1” die cut from the Love You Die Cuts was perfect for this spread, and I paired it with a simple journaling tag from the same pack, which I stamped with “so much goodness” from the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Stamp.
 

 
This small bit of blue pattern in the bottom corner was one piece of a visual triangle of blue color on my spread. I simply topped it with a Hand Drawn Acrylic Heart and the “meant to be” die cut from the January 2018 Kit.
 

 
On the right side of the spread I used 3″ x 4″ journaling tags from the kit as the base for each pocket, as well as my favorite Lucille Ball quote, completed with the “love” puffy sticker from the Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers.
 

 
I had so much fun working with all of the beautiful colors and embellishments new to the shop this month to make this layout!
 

Paper Stack Love with Wendy Antenucci

We are so excited that there is a new 6″ x 6″ paper stack in the shop this month—one that coordinates directly with our January 2018 kit and extras. Today, Wendy Antenucci is joining us to share how layered the fun and colorful 6″ squares with the rest of the new product this month to create a beautiful page about the people she loves most. Let’s see what she made!
 
It’s Wendy here today for my first blog post at Elle’s Studio; I am so excited for the chance to share with all of you! I love 6″ x 6″ paper pads as they lend themselves to layering, they are perfect for cards, just the right size for pockets pages, and so much more! I really love that they give me the freedom to play without cutting into a full piece of paper.
 

 
Supplies | January Kit, Love You Die Cuts, White Cardstock Alphabet Stickers, Letter and Number Stickers — Black, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, You Are Loved Wood Veneer, Enamel DotsXOXO Stamp, XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
Today I had fun layering with the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack! I began my page by picking three 6″ x 6″ squares that I liked together and laid them on my paper. After choosing a photo that would work with the colors and design in my head I trimmed a few of the pieces down so that all the colors and patterns could be seen.
 

 
I begin all of my pages with a “photo block”; in this case it would be my photo and the 6″ x 6″ papers that I layered together. To anchor my photo block I again turned to my XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack for two pieces that would anchor and not overwhelm my otherwise colorful page, and the gray heart “XO” pattern was perfect to add that neutral  element to the background. Using two 6″ x 6″ pages together made it look like a 6″ x 12″ strip of patterned paper.
 

 
A few fun pieces from the Love You Die Cuts were the quick and easy finishing touches to my page. Once my page is done, I then like to add in my journaling, usually a few lines with just my handwriting to tell the story. I love the XOXO Stamp, as it has tiny sayings and graphics that add to the details of the page, but don’t take away from the overall design as seen with this phrase and arrow.
 

 
Thanks for joining me today! Be sure to pick up the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack to create a beautiful foundation for your next layout!
 

One Day at a Time in Pockets with Nathalie Leonelli

Are you still wrapping up your weekly or monthly pocket pages from 2017? The January kit and add-ons in the shop are the perfect way to fill in those gaps, like Nathalie Leonelli is doing here today with a new pocket page spread! Let’s take a look at how she has filled her pockets!
 
Hi there! This is Nathalie and I am thrilled to be hosting my first blog post on the Elle’s Studio blog! My latest project is a weekly spread in my 6″ x 12″ album created with the January kit + extras.
 

 
Supplies | January Kit, January LabelsLove You Die Cuts, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, Letter and Number Stickers — White, Black Cardstock Alphabet Stickers, Star Chipboard StickersDated Stamp, Days of the Week Stamp, Stanley Jr. Alphabet Stamp — OutlineTime StampXOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
I absolutely fell in love with the colors in this kit, especially the purple and lavender accents which I paired on my pages with gray tags and finished with touches of red and turquoise.
 
For the title card, I used a patterned paper from the brand new XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, a label from the Love You Die Cuts stamped with the Dated Stamp (already a favorite of mine) and topped with a star from the new Star Chipboard Stickers.
 

 
I also used those awesome stars on my “Currently” card. A “currently” list is a great remedy if you are short on photos!
 

 
See those Black Cardstock Alphabet Stickers? They come in several other colors and I LOVE their quality and their size. I had fun mixing them with the Days of the Week and the Stanley Jr. Alphabet Stamp.
 
Other favorites in this month’s release are the Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers and the January Labels. If, like me, you are using a manual typewriter, type your text on them before cutting the label off the sheet!
 

 
Don’t forget to use foam dots to add dimension and maybe pull out some colorful thread to add texture with some stitching.
 

 

 
I could not be happier with the look of this spread and I am excited to share more with you every month!
 

One Product, Three Ways: Wood Veneer Love Tags

What an exciting reveal it has been! We’ve introduced so many new products to help you complete your papercrafting projects and tell your story. It was hard to choose, but we selected the Wood Veneer Love Tags for our One Product, Three Ways post this month, and Heather Leopard, Candace Perkins and Amanda-jayne Baldwin are here to show us how they inspired them to create! Let’s take a look.

Heather | I decided to use the wood tags like confetti to fill one of the 4″x4″ inserts in my pocket page. While I like using the tags in their natural state, I decided they needed a punch of color. You could choose to paint them entirely. If so, most paint and mist mediums will do the trick. However, if you want to color specific areas, I suggest you avoid using a really wet liquid as that may cause the color to bleed in the grain of the wood. I chose to color the little details of the tags. To accomplish this, I used my watercolor color pencils, without water. I used very sharp pencils and simply colored the sections in that I wanted colored. I used the same technique to color the wood phrase at the bottom of the page.

Candace | Hello Elle’s Studio friends! How fun are the wood veneer tags this month?  I love when I see a product and it inspires project ideas right away, and that is what happened when I saw the Wood Veneer Love Tags this month.  I knew I wanted to create a fun tag layout about daily adventures with my little sidekick.  I started with a full 6″ x 8″ photo of my little guy and me on the left side.  I kept my journaling and embellishments to the right side of the spread.  For my short journaling, I used the journal spots from the Love You Die Cuts.  Now for the fun: embellishments!  I tucked coordinating hearts around my journaling and stitched them down for added interest and texture.  The main attraction of the whole spread, the tags, were my final touch! I added three tags across the spread, tied with embroidery floss and tucked around my journaling spots. I love the final look of the spread with it’s fun, whimsical feel, but most of all I love this moment and memory captured.

Amanda | The January Kit lends itself beautifully to Valentine’s creating,
so here’s the card my Valentine will be receiving—I hope he likes it! I just love the natural look of wood veneer, and the warmth it adds to any project. My card is a simple 4″ x 8″ design, and features patterned paper from the XOXO 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Love You Die Cuts, Enamel Dots, & Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, but it’s those wooden tags that really impress!
 
I’ve arranged the tags in a grid layout, and embellished them with those sweet tiny bows, created from the patterns in the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. Apart from adding dimension & interest, the bows also ‘cover up’ the tops of the wood tags. This means you can mix & match the shapes and sentiments, while keeping a ‘clean’ look. To add texture, the pretty heart paper beneath the tags is stitched into place, as well as the “XOXO” die cut from the Love You Die Cuts.


 
Wow! What inspiring projects from our talented team members! Be sure to check out the fabulous Wood Veneer Love Tags in our shop while supplies last! 
 

Die Cut Love with January Guest Adrienne Alvis

We are so excited to welcome our first guest for 2018, the talented Adrienne Alvis to the Elle’s Studio blog! We always love her use of color, along with the perfect mix of embellishment. Let’s see what she created with the January Kit + extras to share with us today!
 
Hello! My name is Adrienne Alvis. I’m so excited to be a guest here at Elle’s Studio and share my work with all of you! I was really inspired by the awesome sentiment die cut from the Love You Die Cuts and created my entire page design around it!
 

 
Supplies | January Kit, Love You Die Cuts, Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers, Star Chipboard Stickers, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
I used a piece of kraft cardstock for my background paper and placed the “I Love You More Than All The Stars In The Sky” die cut next to the photo of my husband and I, which I layered on top of the striped patterned paper from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack.
 

 
Next, I visually balanced out my design by using two more patterned paper pieces from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack and cut them to fill in the white space under my photo and the sentiment die cut piece. Since I love to layer and create embellishment clusters, I utilized the space on the patterned paper pieces under my photo for just that.
 

 
I placed several die cut and Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts and tags from the Love You Die Cut on the patterned paper squares and I also used some of the leftover pieces from the striped patterned paper that I layered under my photo to create a pocket to house my journaling card, which I sewed onto the page.
 

 
I simply placed the piece of patterned paper onto my page and used my sewing machine to stitch around three sides of it to create a little pocket. This is a great way to add texture to your page while hiding some of your private journaling!
 
I also included several of the Star Chipboard and Hugs and Kisses Puffy Stickers to add some dimension and color pop to my design. I love how the softer colors from the XOXO 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack look paired with the pops of black and white!
 

 
I was born and raised in Southern Illinois and grew up around my family’s farm. My mother was always sewing, making crafts, and taking craft classes, but I didn’t discover my crafty side until after I had my youngest son, almost 11 years ago. I started creating traditional layouts, but soon found a love for making cards, mini albums, home decor projects, and pocket page albums. I am currently designing for Pinkfresh Studio and have been on many other design teams over the past few years. I’ve been married to my husband for almost 12 years now, and we have three beautiful and spirited kiddos, Garrison (15), Jubal (10), and Avery (8). Of course, my children are my main source of scrappy subject matter and I love how documenting their every move and milestone helps satisfy my creative urges. Other than paper-crafting, I have a full-time job as a LuLaRoe fashion consultant and in my spare time I like to read, run, watch movies in bed, listen to music, travel, and work on DIY home projects. You can find more of my projects on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and my blog, Paper Fab.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to leave Adrienne some love and stop by her social media accounts for more inspiration. You can see more of her projects, featuring the newest Elle’s Studio project, here on the blog next week!

Gender Neutral “Thank You” Cards with Meghann Andrew

Are you stuck in a rut when it comes to creating cards? Meghann Andrew is here to show us how she switched things up and created two “thank you” cards in a different style using our Thank You Stamp and Thank You Puffy Stickers.
 
When I sit down to create “thank you” cards, I typically make them feminine, with flowers, pink and red hues and small, feminine details. So, my ready-to-go card stash is filled with “thank you” greetings for my girlfriends, but not so much for my neighbor who helped us out with our house, or my dad, who gave us a night of babysitting so that we could have a kid-free date night.
 
I pulled out my Thank You Stamp and Thank You Puffy Stickers, along with the Family Fun collection and got to work to create some gender-neutral thank you cards that can be sent to anyone I need to show gratitude to.
 

 
Supplies | Thank You StampThank You Puffy StickersTwinkle Puffy Stickers, Hello Winter ChipboardFamily Fun CutoutsFamily Fun Bits and PiecesFamily Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack
 
The first card I created was inspired by the lovely, colorful pennants in the Family Fun  Bits and Pieces.
 

 
I wanted to use these pennants to create a banner on my card, and decided that the “thanks” puffy sticker word would be perfect hanging from the banner, too. My sewing machine easily sewed through those letters. On the bottom banner, I also hung an orange label from the Family Fun Cutouts that I stamped “for being you” from the Thank You Stamp onto. I love that I can use the puffy stickers with the stamp so easily together to create the perfect sentiment.
 
My second card was inspired by circles!
 

 
I punched three circles of differing sizes from my 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of green paper from the Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, then simply turned those pieces around to show the large grid pattern underneath. This became the perfect place to stamp my large “thank you” sentiment from the Thank You Stamp in dark blue ink. On the third, smallest circle, I added the “you are incredible” Thank You Puffy Sticker, then embellished with another circle from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces, Twinkle Puffy Stickers and pieces from the Hello Winter Chipboard.
 

 
I hope these creations will inspire you to try out a new card style today, using the awesome Thank You Stamp and Thank You Puffy Stickers to show your gratitude!
