Creative Cork Tab Cards with Wendy Antenucci

One of our newest products in the shop is our Cork Tabs! These little, neutral tabs include fun words that can be used on any project—from planner pages to layouts! Today, Wendy Antenucci found a great way to use them, and she’s here to share her latest projects with us!
 
Cute Cork Tabs, who would have ever thought?! I had so much fun figuring out ways to use these tabs!
 

 
Supplies | December 2018 Kit, December Blank Label StickersCork TabsMerry and Bright 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Acrylic Christmas Trees, Noteworthy 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Noteworthy Puffy Stickers, Wonder and Joy Stamp
 
My first thought was to use the tabs to create a saying on my card. I chose to house my sentiment on a doily with a combination of the “note to self” die cut from the December 2018 Kit, Cork Tabs, and a stamped December Blank Label Sticker using the “a fresh start” phrase from the Wonder and Joy Stamp. A couple of sweet Noteworthy Puffy Sticker butterflies finished off this sunny card.
 

 
My next inspiration came while dreaming of paper crafting at night! I chose to combine the tabs to create a large star embellishment—which led me to create a New Year themed card—the perfect opportunity to use the “hello New Year” tag from the December 2018 Kit! A few gold acrylic stars from the Acrylic Christmas Trees and a wonky hand cut border were the finishing touches to this card.
 

 
What fun ways did you find to use your cork tabs? The sky is the limit!
 

Profound Words in Pockets with Andrea Gray

When was the last time you documenting something profound about your own life? Today, design team member Andrea Gray is with us in her final blog post as a DT member, and she’s inspiring us to look at our year and document the goals or things that we want to change. Let’s take a look: 
 
Hiya friends! I have to start out with a big thank you to Elle’s Studio for having me as part of the design team for the past two years! I have loved every project and every minute on this team and with so many talented creators. Making projects that YOU can take to your desk and execute has always been my goal and I hope I have done that for you. I am stepping away from the team to pursue some big dreams and this will be my last project for the blog, but don’t think I won’t still be creating with these goodies—hashtag Elle’s Studio for life!
 
So let’s get on with this pocket page, shall we? I am still pretty behind in my life album, so I grabbed some non-Christmas specific tags for this pocket page about guarding my time. Let’s dive in!
 

 
Supplies | December 2018 Kit, Document December 2018 Kit, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers
 
I started out with this quote that I used to announce I was stopping the podcast I had started in the beginning of the year. It was a profound quote and I wanted to make a page all about this decision. The “YES” tab on the teal card was the perfect place for the square quote. Attaching the “note to self” die cut was a great addition and adds contrast to this card. And of course, the “CHECKLIST” card acted as a place where I could make some actual goals for myself regarding this topic!
 

 
My goal with pocket pages is always to find color balance among the cards. This little corner shot displays this practice perfectly. Light, dark, striped, patterned—all from the December 2018 Kit and all working together!
 

 
The boldest part of the page is this statement card. I used a label from the kit hanging from the top, with a die cut slipped underneath and Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers to make a title. I love combining different pieces like this to make titles!
 

 
Here’s how it all came together in the end, complete with a selfie and a fun collection of colors! Thanks again so much for supporting this team and this company over the years, we all love creating and are so glad you’re here!
 

 
Have a super crafty week!
 

 
We have loved having you on the team inspiring us for these past two years, Andrea, and we wish you all of the best for your plans ahead in 2019!

Digital Cut File Perfection with Daniela

Digital cut files are always great to have on hand—they’re the perfect way to add a word or die-cut shape in just the color or pattern you need for a project. Today, design team member Daniela is showing us a show-stopping new layout that she created using our November 2018 Digital Cut File that we know you will love! Let’s take a look:
 
Hi crafty friends, it’s Daniela again and I’m thrilled to be sharing another layout today focusing on the November 2018 Digital Cut File. I’m a huge fan of Elle’s cut files and I use them every month. Using cut files offers so many possibilities and the files Elle’s Studio offers are always a great addition to the kit and other products.
I decided to cut lots of leafy branches from different 6″ x 6″ papers from the Noteworthy collection and arranged them under a paper circle to create a big display for my picture.
 
This is how my layout turned out:
 

Supplies | November 2018 Digital Cut File, Jane Alphabet Stickers – BlackPuffy Heart Stickers – Spring Mix, Noteworthy Puffy StickersNoteworthy Epoxy Stickers, Noteworthy Wood VeneersNoteworthy 6 x 6 Paper StackNoteworthy 12 x 12 Paper CollectionAll The Details Stamp
 
I made use of the cut file in two different ways. Sometimes I only cut the outer lines of the shape and sometimes I cut it with the blanks. This way, the arrangement of the branches becomes more interesting because there is more variety. Before placing everything on the cardstock, I applied some color splashes in yellow, pink and blue. I also added some of the Noteworthy Epoxy Stickers because I love the mix of different textures. The stamped phrases added in black ink from the All The Details Stamp add more details to the page and build a nice contrast to the bright colors.
 

 
All the elements of the page are overlapping somehow. I love building clusters— that’s my favorite style of scrapping. The picture is joined to all the elements with the Noteworthy Puffy Stickers, which create the title of my page. The picture of my daughter is one of my favorites taken last summer. She is wearing her favorite shirt and glasses and is so happy about her outfit that she got out of the closet herself. If you take a closer look at the picture, you can see that all the colors I used for the branches occur in my girly’s shirt as well.
 

 
The branches are only adhered to the cardstock on one end, the one that is under the paper circle. This way, a kind of 3D effect is created because the other end doesn’t lie flat on the paper, but stands up a bit. The Noteworthy Wood Veneer tab even adds more dimension to the page as well as the Noteworthy Epoxy Stickers.
 

 
All in all, I really like how this layout turned out because it conveys the cheerful mood my daughter was in when the picture was taken. Hopefully, you feel inspired to use the November 2018 Digital Cut File yourself! I’d be happy to see what you create, so don’t forget to tag #EllesStudio on social media when sharing your work.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
