On This Day in March with Melissa Morrelli

We have loved the traveler’s notebook spread and mini album that March guest Melissa Morrelli has shared with us this month. Her clean, documentary style works perfectly with ES product! Today, she has another traveler’s notebook spread to share with us, and we know it will inspire you to document a single day in more detail. Let’s see what she created!

Hi friends! It’s Melissa here back to share my final project using the March Kit and extras. Today’s project is another traveler’s notebook spread. As much I appreciate the compact size of a traveler’s notebook, there have been times when I’ve wanted to document more than 1-2 pictures. My go to method for sharing multiple photos in my traveler’s notebook is making a photo strip or grid of some sort with smaller sized photos. 

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, On This Day In March Journaling Tags, Spring Puffy Stickers, The Details Stamp, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack

When creating a photo strip/grid, the first thing I decide on is how many pictures I want to use on my layout. Then I can decide on what size I should print my photos at. For this layout, I wanted to share three photos, so I went ahead and printed my photos at 2.25″ x 2.25″. 

For my background, I used some grid paper. On the right side of my layout, which is where I decided I wanted to place my photos, I backed all three of my photos with the cute floral and green grass looking paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack. Then I moved over to the left side. I typed out my journaling on one of the awesome On This Day In March Journaling Tags. Once I had the placement of my photos and journal tag that I was happy with, I adhered them down to the background. 

To embellish this layout, I knew I wanted to use the “Spring is Here!” Spring Puffy Sticker. I created a little cluster with it, a pink puffy heart and a circle I punched from the cute polka dot paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack. I used mostly puffy stickers to embellish throughout this layout. I also used small scraps of paper and the “It’s My Lucky Day” tab from the March 2019 Kit behind my journaling tag. Then, I grabbed The Details Stamp and added a few of the small phrases throughout the layout. I also used the bolder phrases with the arrows to stamp up against the entire length of my photo strip. 

As a last minute decision, I tore the edges of my paper on the left side (towards the bottom) and right side (towards the top) to add in just a tiny bit more of that super cute polka dot paper. I folded over the ripped edges and stapled them down with my tiny attacher. 

It has be a real pleasure, friends. I hope I’ve inspired you to create something fun this month!

Hello, Elle’s Studio fans! I’m Melissa Morrelli, an obsessed picture taker and story teller. I am so thrilled to be a guest designer this month for Elle’s Studio. My absolute favorite method for documenting my family stories is in a traveler’s notebook—I really appreciate the compact size! My other paper love is making mini albums for special occasions (birthdays, holidays and vacations.) I live in California with my family, my favorite subject to photograph and tell stories about. We are an active family and we love the outdoors (you can always find us where the wild things are!) There’s never a dull moment in my life and there is always a story to tell.

I really hope I have inspired you to make something fun!

Thank you so much for your beautiful projects this month, Melissa! Be sure to follow her Instagram feed, @melissamorrelli, for more mini album and traveler’s notebook inspiration.

“Inspired By” with Suzanna Lee

Have you noticed that there are SO many amazingly talented scrapbookers and memory keepers out there these days? The ladies on the Elle’s Studio design team are no exception! This is Suzanna here today to share with you a scraplift that I did of one of Daniela’s February gallery layouts. It was difficult to choose just one layout! In fact, if I’m honest, I had four layouts initially and narrowed it down to one that truly inspired me and the layout I’m about to share. So inspired that it really IS a scraplift! Here’s Daniela’s layout that inspired me:

Here’s what I created based on her inspirational layout:

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, March Labels, So Awesome Printables, March Print and Cut Labels, Spring Puffy Stickers, Yellow Puffy Alphabet StickersSpringtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, The Details StampLarge Jane Alphabet Stamp – Stripes, Large Jane Number Metal Die

There were several things that grabbed my attention: the lose grid, not symmetrical but still evident; the stamped inner square on the grid background and the thin outer border. I was also drawn by the use of the striped Large Jane Alphabet Stamp for the title and wanted to incorporate that somehow.

Daniela only used a single photo on her page and I really wanted to incorporate two. I could have still used the 3″ x 4″ journaling card of patterned paper that she had with a smaller photo, but I opted to just replace the bottom, right tag with a photo. Daniela also used primarily 3″ x 4″ tags from the main kit, whereas I used just one, from the So Awesome Printables, and the rest is patterned paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack that I cut down to size.

Wanting to personalize the scraplift, I created my own grid background using the The Details Stamp with a hot pink ink. This is not the first time I have used this stamp set for something other than it’s intended purpose–I like to think out of the box and find multiple uses for goodies in my stash. It’s not perfect, but most of the grid is covered and I like the way that the imperfect grid matches the imperfect stamping on our imperfect date. Instead of the polka dot “I” from the Large Jane Alpha Stamp that Daniela used for her inner border, I used two of the phrases with arrows from the The Details Stamp with a coordinating yellow ink.

I love the color combinations in the March Kit, and rather than the two tone single color that Daniela used, I opted to incorporate more of the colors found in the kit with a focus on the yellow, green and pink. I found that this really made the blue in the photos pop.

Have you been inspired by any of the design teams projects this month? Have you been so inspired that it has inspired you to incorporate an element of that design into your own, or scraplift the page altogether? We would love to see how our projects have inspired you. Be sure to share on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio so that we can find your design team inspired projects! Thanks for stopping in today! 

Easter Greetings Using the March Kit with Steph Grimes

Even though friends and family may not be close enough to spend your Easter celebrations together, you can still send a piece of yourself to them by creating a handmade card! Today, design team member Steph Grimes is sharing two lovely cards that she created using her leftovers from her March Kit and add-ons, and we know they will make you want to pull out your stash to create today!

Hi all! This is Steph and I’m here to share something with you that you haven’t seen from me yet—cards! What you may not know is that for years I was an avid card maker, which is where my love for stamping came from. Today I’m sharing two Easter greeting cards I made using the March Kit and extras.  

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, Jane Alphabet Stickers – White, Spring Puffy Stickers, White Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Little Acrylic Bunnies, Wood Veneer Easter Eggs, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Title Builder Stamp

Making these cards was a great way to use some of the papers from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack because they are the perfect size for cards, and the patterns are perfect for spring celebrations. I also loved using some of the kit pieces I had leftover from other projects and some of my scraps to embellish these cards.

For my first card, the greeting came to me first. As I was eyeing those adorable Little Acrylic Bunnies, the phrase “Hop Hop Hooray” popped into my head and I knew that had to be the greeting on the card. To create the card, I used a white cardstock base to create a card that is 4.25” x 5.5”. On top, I layered the multi-colored polka dot paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack trimmed to 4” x 5.25”. Across the top, I used the yellow polka dot paper from the paper stack to add a border cut to full width and punched at the bottom with a scalloped border punch. I then chose a purple journaling tag from the March 2019 Kit and trimmed it down a bit to hold my greeting.

Once I had the base of the card ready, I decided how I wanted to embellish it. I cut apart a tag from the March Kit to have some labels to add. Each label then became a home for one of the Little Acrylic Bunnies in a complementary color. Before adhering everything down, I used some scraps from tags and papers from the kit to create three little banners to tuck under the purple journaling tag. The final step was to add my clever greeting. I used a mix of the White and Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers to spell out the words front and center. Then, for an additional pop of color, I added a small star puffy sticker and small heart puffy sticker from the Spring Puffy Stickers.

The base of my second card is also white cardstock trimmed to 4.25” x 5.5” and uses the monochromatic purple paper from the Springtime stack as the background. I was really inspired by the journaling tag in the March kit that features the large bunny, so I cut out the bunny from the tag to make a template. Then, I traced that bunny onto the back of the tiny floral pattern paper in the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack and cut it out so I had a patterned bunny to bring a little more interest than the plain white. This is also a great way to extend your products and make them go a little further. I added a small red heart puffy sticker from the Spring Puffy Stickers as a tail on my bunny. Then, I cut a circle from the yellow polka dot paper using a die and added a Wood Veneer Easter Egg (my favorite item in this month’s release!) and another puffy heart to finish off the little grouping on this card.

I used a photo corner punch to punch the yellow polka dot paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack and a scalloped border punch to punch a strip of striped paper from the stack as well. For my greeting on this card, I stamped the word “happy” from the Title Builder Stamp and heat embossed it with white embossing powder to add some additional dimension and interest, then added the word “Easter” using the white Jane Alphabet Stickers.

I am excited to deliver these cards to loved ones on Easter and bring a little more joy to their day! Making cards is a great way to use every last little bit of your kit, leftover items, and scraps you may have. I hope you are inspired to use your March kit and extras to make some Easter or spring greeting cards for your loved ones!   

Documenting a Day in Depth with Sabrina Poole

When was the last time that you documented a day of your life in depth so that you could have all of those tiny details of your life recorded? Design team member Sabrina Poole did that with the help of our On This Day In March Journaling Tags, in a brand new, lovely spring pocket page that she’s sharing with us today. Let’s take a look!

Hi. This is Sabrina! I hope you are having good Friday. Today I wanted to share with you how I used one of the new products that came out this month, the On This Day In March Journaling Tags. I focused on journaling all of the moments of my day using these cards.

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, March Labels, Tiny Everyday Label Stickers, Hazel Alphabet Stickers – Gray, On This Day In March Journaling Tags, Spring Puffy Stickers, White Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Puffy Icon Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers – Summer Mix, Puffy Heart Stickers – Spring Mix, Wood Veneer Speech Bubbles, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Noteworthy 6 x 6 Paper Stack

I started this spread by making a fun title card using the teal and green speech bubble card from the March 2019 Kit. I then grabbed the pink striped paper from the Noteworthy 6 x 6 Paper Stack, a striped blue paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, the Hazel Alphabet Stickers and the new White Puffy Alphabet Stickers to build the title card. Here is the finished card and I love how it really ties in all the colors I planned on using with the spread. 

The On This Day In March Journaling Tags are awesome for doing a type of more in-depth documenting of the day and that is what I decided to do for my 9″ x 12″ spread. My kids and I were outside on a Sunday afternoon when the sun had finally come out and I took a bunch of pictures. Since I had so many pictures, I decided that documenting this fun and sunny afternoon would be perfect with these cards.

I added a lot of details about the day and I used the March Kit blue tag die cut to make a tab for two of the tags so you could flip over the tags to read more journaling on the back. I finished my story on the back of one of the tags and on the other, added another little story with a photo. 

After my journaling was added my title card was built, the embellishing came next. I used a variety of products to decorate my page and also add in more journaling. I used the March Labels to add some snippets of journaling on a few cards. Puffy stickers added a great pop of color and the Wood Veneer Speech Bubbles added in some extra dimension.  

I hope this page and the awesome On This Day In March Journaling Tags help you to document some more of those everyday stories. They are a great addition to memory keeping. Thank you so much for reading! 

Simple Easter Treats or Place Cards with Jess Forster

Easter is right around the corner, and if you’re hosting a gathering, your to-do list is long! Why not get your table decor out of the way and create some cute treat bags that also double as place cards? Jess Forster is with us today to show us how easily they can come together, and your guests will never know! Let’s take a look!

Hi friends! Happy first day of spring! This year my sister and I taking over hosting duties from my mom for our family Easter celebration. I am excited but also a little nervous! Although Easter is three weeks away, I have already started planning the menu and the table decor. Specifically, I made these little treat bags that double, not only as sweet dessert for both kids and adults, but also serve as a place card! Super cute, these bags are easy to make and only require three supplies. Have a look!

Supplies | Tiny Blank Label Stickers, Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack

I selected the multi striped pattern paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, and I just love the pastel colours with the change of season. Swoon! Using my handy dandy paper trimmer, I cut 2″ x 3″ strips of paper and then cut a triangle on the bottom of one end. I did this 8 times as we have 8 guests coming for dinner.

From there I added small details to the banners. Using the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, I placed the first letter of the guests’ name onto the Tiny Blank Label Stickers. I just love these type of delicate touches to any place setting or treat bag. 

Next, I filled wax paper bags that I picked up from my local craft store with Cadbury Mini Eggs. For fun, I placed the blue, green, yellow and pink eggs in a ombre pattern. This was perhaps the longest part of the crafting process, but the real test was trying not to eat all the mini eggs! Ha! Finally, once the bags were filled, I simply stapled the banner on to the treat bags. One job complete!

These quick & easy Easter treat bags came together in no time which is good as I now have to research the best way to cook a ham! Happy crafting!! Happy Spring!

Documenting “The Details” with Tracey Fox

Our March stamp, The Details Stamp, includes an array of stamps that help you get your stories on your project or add tiny labels or punched die cuts for embellishment! Today, Tracey Fox has taken this fun stamp set to the next level with a new scrapbook layout that we know you will love! Let’s see what she created!

Hi there! I’m so excited to share this colorful layout that I made using The Details Stamp that was released this month. It’s such a versatile set that lets you document the main highlights of an event or story with ease. 

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, Tiny Everyday Label Stickers, Spring Puffy Stickers, Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Wood Veneer Speech Bubbles, The Details Stamp, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I knew immediately that I wanted to play with the circle stamps in the set. The sentiments and icons are so cute, and they perfectly fit the story of my day at the state fair with my best friend! I decided to stamp them in lots of colors in a repeating pattern to make my own patterned paper.

To help me line the stamps up neatly, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut a grid of small circles into a piece of cardstock I could use as a template for my stamping. 

Next, I focused on the “Who, What, Where, When, Why” stamp in the set. I stamped it on white cardstock, which I matted onto a yellow tag from the March 2019 Kit, and I placed it at the center of a grid of photos I arranged showing details from our trip to the fair. I used the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers to fill in the blocks with my simple journaling. I love how this stamp can be used on so many different types of projects—layouts, pocket cards, traveler’s notebooks, planners, and mini-books—to capture the important details of just about any event or story.

I adhered my photo grid down the center of the layout with a couple of patterned layers using the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and a tag from the March Kit. Then, I added a few simple embellishments from the March kit die cuts, the Spring Puffy Stickers, the Wood Veneer Speech Bubbles, and the Tiny Everyday Label Stickers. I also added a few of the tiny word stamps from the stamp sets around my areas of embellishment. 

Finally, I used my home-made circle stencil to trace a few of circle stamps with my trusty Elle’s Studio black pen. I like how it added some interest to the patterned stamping and echoed the black outlines on the journaling boxes in the center of the page. Thanks so much for taking a look today! I’m already excited to put this stamp set to use to tell more of my stories.

An Easter Mini Album with Melissa Morrelli

Our guest designer Melissa Morrelli inspired us last week with a beautiful traveler’s notebook spread, and this week, she’s switching things up to share a fun mini album that’s easy to put together in just minutes using only paper! We know you’ll want to create your own after you see her post. Let’s take a look!

Hi Friends! It’s Melissa and I’m back today to share another style of project that I’m also very fond of. Today I’m sharing a mini album documenting Easters past. 

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, Tiny Everyday Label Stickers, Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, White Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Spring Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Easter Eggs, Chocolate Acrylic Bunnies, The Details Stamp, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack

To get this project started, I got my mini album assembled.  Assembling the album is really where the majority of the time goes into doing this type of project and it really is quite simple to assemble. Just follow these simple steps that I found from fellow scrapbooker, Enza Gudor:

  • For the cover, use a 11.75” x 4.25” piece of white cardstock. Score at 4” and 4.25”, then again at 3.25” and 3.5” after rotating it 180 degrees.
  • Cut the inside sheets at 4″ x 8″, score in the middle and fold. Adhere these sheets of paper back to back and adhere to the inside of the front and back covers of the mini album.
  • For a bit of a change, use vellum and transparency for your pages and stitch your papers onto the the spine of your album. I will warn you, the clear transparency paper is stiff and made it a bit of a challenge to keep the book open by itself, especially while trying to photograph, but the transparency did not compromise turning the pages in the album at all. 

To be able keep my album closed, I attached some thin ribbon to the outside cover of my album (small, front cover and back cover) using double sided tape. Then, I created some pockets on the inside of my album (to the larger front cover and back cover) by stitching on a small piece of paper with my sewing machine. Lastly, I covered my album (all three sides) with cute paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, which is the perfect size for a project this size! I embellished the small, front cover with one of the super cute Wood Veneer Easter Eggs and I titled my album “Easter” using the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers

I printed quite a few of my favorite Easter pictures of my kids and family. To keep things simple, I printed all my photos at 2.25 x 2.25″. Another reason this project came together so quickly is the use of the coordinating March kit and extras. Using these supplies took all the guess work out of coordinating my supplies!

Using paper from the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack and tags from the March 2019 Kit, I just added a few layers behind all of my pictures to add in fun colors to my black and white photos. After getting all my pictures and paper layers glued into the album, I went back and started embellishing with more wood veneer pieces, those yummy looking Chocolate Acrylic Bunnies, Spring Puffy Stickers, Tiny Everyday Label Stickers and phrases from The Details Stamp. I love the addition of the vellum and clear transparencies in the album and how the embellishments on them stand out. 

The addition of the pockets on the inside and back cover of the album gives me more space to add more stories for Easters to come! I hope this project has inspired you to get your Easter stories documented, too!

Hello, Elle’s Studio fans! I’m Melissa Morrelli, an obsessed picture taker and story teller. I am so thrilled to be a guest designer this month for Elle’s Studio.

Everyday Adventures Documented with Ashley Laura

Even the smallest spring adventures, like a trip to the zoo, a walk in the park or a bike ride can be documented in such a lovely way using our March kit and extras. Design team member Ashley Laura is with us today to share just how perfectly you can put a traveler’s notebook spread together using our newest products, and record a fun memory, too!

Hey everyone! I’m so glad to be back using the beautiful March kit and extras! I am loving this month’s color scheme, and I had the perfect picture to match all of the amazing sentiments in this month’s kit. I created a quick traveler’s notebook page documenting a photo of my daughter at the zoo. This was one of the first spring days in Texas and we decided to get out of the house for an adventure!

Supplies | March 2019 Kit, March Labels, Tiny Everyday Label Stickers, Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, The Details Stamp

I’m obsessed with The Details Stamp, so I decided to create a quick background using stamps from the set and different ink colors that complimented the color scheme for this month.

Before I cut-apart the March Labels, I stuck the full sheet into my typewriter so that I could type onto each section. Once I cut them apart, I offset them underneath my photo. I also added a couple of the March Kit die cuts around those labels. 

The photo could have stood alone without any extra layering but I couldn’t wait to use the more of the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, so I decided to layer up some patterns behind my photo. 

I’d love to see how you all create your own patterned paper! Grab your Elle’s Studio stamps and share your take on a background!
