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!

Look at the awesome border that @mysoulscraps stamped under her photo using the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 3 Stamp!

Christmas Canines with Melissa Mann and the December 2017 Kit

The holiday season keeps us busy, but now that celebrations are wrapping up and life is getting back to normal, it is the perfect time to document those special holiday moments while they are still fresh in our minds. Today we have Melissa Mann with us to share a beautiful new layout that records how her furry friends celebrated the season. Let’s see what she created.
 
Good morning, everyone! This is Melissa with you here today and I’m excited to share my very first project created for Elle’s Studio in 2018 using the December 2017 Kit and extras!
 

 
Supplies | December 2017 KitLight Gray Cardstock Alphabet StickersTwinkle Puffy StickersFamily Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Stanley Number StampStanley Alphabet Stamp – Outline
 
The holidays are over and if you are like me, you’ve packed up and put away all the holiday decor; but, if you are also like me, you didn’t get a lot of holiday scrapbooking done in December! I really wanted to scrap these pictures that my brother and I took of our dogs over the holidays! They were just too cute to not share!
 

 
I used the woodgrain pattern from the Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection to create my background frame. That is really the only piece of patterned paper I used; the only other thing I used to bring some color into the layout was with the 3″ x 4″ journaling tags from the December 2017 Kit,. Because the backgrounds of my photos of the dogs were already super busy and colorful, I didn’t want to overwhelm the layout with more patterned paper. The journaling cards worked perfectly and I was able to include my typed journaling on one, and a stapled die cut to the other one.
 

 
My other favorite part of this layout is the title! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Elle’s Studio Stanley Alphabet Stamp! I stamped my title on kraft cardstock, then fussy cut each of the letters and stitched them to my layout. I also included a little more of the kraft in the lower left hand corner using the Stanley Number Stamp to help create balance on layout.
 

 
How are you scrapping your holiday photos? Are you creating traditional layouts, pocket pages or even traveler’s notebooks? I hope this provides a bit of inspiration for your next holiday documentation project!

Handmade Thanks with Daniela Dobson

After the holiday season is over, we have a lot to be thankful for, including people who have shown us kindness. Why not send them a handmade card using the new Thank You products from the Elle’s Studio shop? Today we have Daniela Dobson sharing two beautiful and simple cards that can show someone how grateful you are. Let’s take a look.
 
Welcome to the Elle’s Studio blog today! It’s Daniela here, highlighting the brand new Thank You Stamp and Thank You Puffy Stickers, which are perfect for thanking friends and family after a busy holiday season!
 

 
Supplies | Thank You StampThank You Puffy Stickers, Family Fun Blank Labels, Family Fun Bits and PiecesFamily Fun Puffy Stickers, Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack 
 
I used white cardstock for the base of the cards with patterned paper from the Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack cut slightly smaller than the base for a white border.
 

 
For the first card, I layered darker embellishments from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces and a large heart that I adhered using dimensional adhesive. “A note to say” from the Thank You Stamp was stamped in black ink on white cardstock and cut out to fit above the “I appreciate you so much” Thank You Puffy Sticker.
 

 
For the second card, I used lighter colors in the same style as the first card. I layered the “from the bottom of my heart” Thank You Puffy Sticker over the Family Fun Blank Label at the top, then stamped “thank you” in black in underneath the label.
 

 
Both cards are embellished with twine in matching colors from my stash and a little puffy heart from the Family Fun Puffy Stickers.
 

 
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to create some thank you cards using these great Elle’s Studio products!
 

Documenting Days of Celebration with Suzanna Stein

After the holiday season, there is much to document! Some of the days of celebration are long, and today design team member Suzanna Stein is showing how she uses the Time Stamp to get all of the little details down. Let’s take a look at what she created.
 
Hey there crafty pals! Suzanna here, and I’m so excited to share this project I created highlighting the Time Stamp. I’m a bit behind on my weekly pocket pages, and when I saw the Time Stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to use it for—I paired it with the Family Fun collection for the perfect little set of products to document our Thanksgiving day.
 

Supplies | Time Stamp, Black Puffy Alphabet StickersLetter & Number Stickers — Light Pink, Light Gray Cardstock Alphabet StickersFamily Fun Blank Labels, Family Fun Word Labels, Family Fun Double-Sided Journaling Tags, Family Fun Bits and Pieces, Family Fun Puffy Stickers, Family Fun 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Family Fun 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection
 
I used the different phases of the day (morning, afternoon, evening, etc.) to document our activities throughout the day. Since this is a day I took more photos than I do on an average day, using the Time Stamp is a perfect way to document them!
 

 
For my title card, I did a brief overview of our day, broken down by morning/afternoon/night. I love the way the white pen pops against that wood grain journaling tag from the Family Fun Double-Sided Journaling Tags!
 

 
Our day this year had three main events that I wanted to remember. For those, I used specific times and a journaling tag with three designated spaces. Such a simple way to document, and I know I’ll love looking back at this in the coming years!
 

 
I used various die cuts from the Family Fun Bits and Pieces to embellish my photos and layout. I just love the way this turned out, and the fact that I am able to remember these pieces of the day in order from morning to night.
 
I hope this gave you a few ideas on how to record those days with more photos than normal, or days you’d like to keep track of in more detail! Happy documenting!
 

 
Have you used our Time Stamp on your paper crafting projects? Share your creation on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio so that we can take a look! You may even be featured here on the blog and win a $10 gift certificate to the Elle’s Studio shop!
