“Inspired By” with Andrea Gray

We love that in the scrapbooking industry, inspiration is everywhere! From Pinterest boards to Instagram accounts and online courses, it is easy to find beautiful pages and projects created by other scrapbookers that might spark your own project. Today on the blog, Andrea Gray is sharing her summer mini album inspired by another mini created by Meghann Andrew and shared just a few weeks ago here on the blog. Let’s see what she made!
 
Hey friends, it’s Andrea! I have a super fun summer mini-album to share and it’s completely inspired by the 3″ x 4″ Summer mini-album that Meghann shared on the blog recently.
 

 
Supplies | Summer Journaling Tags, Summer Stamp, July 2017 Kit, Summer Puffy Stickers, Everyday Circle Stickers, Cork TagsPuffy Heart Stickers, Title Builder Stamp, Title Builder Alphabet Stamp
 
Summer is in full swing and I have accumulated piles of pool photos. I knew I wouldn’t be able to include all of them in my larger pocket pages and knew I had to make this little album to document our summer using the 3″ x 4″ Summer Journaling Tags along with other coordinating tags and embellishments.
 
I pre-planned the cards that would go opposite each photo and strategically punched holes in each as I went along.
 

 
Once all the photos and cards were in place and glued together, I added them to a medium clasp ring. When I add to the album later, I may need to switch it out for a larger ring.
 

 
The next step was to go back through and add all the journaling and embellishments. This was the most fun. Using the Summer Stamp and Summer Puffy Stickers just gave each page a BANG!
 

 
Keeping the decorating simple made this project so quick and easy!
 

 

 
I had a blast making this little album and will be so happy to look back on this as the summer we spent in the pool!

Summer “Camping” Adventures with the July Kit + Extras!

Hey there ES fans! It’s Meghann Andrew with you today. I’m not much of a camper myself—I’d consider myself a “glamper” instead—but when given the opportunity recently to have all of the fun of camping, minus sleeping outside in a tent, I was ALL for it, and I documented the fun with some of the new items in the July release in a pocket page.
 
Supplies | July 2017 Kit, Summer Journaling TagsLove This Life Printables, Love This Life Stamp, Summer Puffy Stickers, Everyday Circle Stickers, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Olivia Alphabet Stamp
 

 
I based the color scheme of my double-sided layout from my favorite tag in the July Kit that I was determined NOT to hoard! The best part is, a similar tag can be found in the Love This Life Printables, so I felt more comfortable with using this lovely 3″ x 4″ tag as a filler, simply topping it with a die-cut heart and the “let’s eat” Summer Puffy Sticker.
 

 
Eating outside next to a bonfire and roasting marshmallows evoke all the best memories of summer for me, and I decided to use the negative space in my 4″ x 6″ photo to add the “love this life” digital image from the Love This Life Printables.
 

 
On the back, I continued the same color scheme. Remember that I said the same beautiful sunset-colored stripe can be found in the Love This Life Printables? Well, I sized it from a 3″ x 4″ tag to a 4″ x 6″ tag, placing it right in the center of my page.
 

 
After printing it out, I topped it with a 3″ x 3″ photo of my dinner, a favorite of ours when we visit the U.K. each summer, and stamped “fish” using the Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Outline and “chips” using the Olivia Alphabet Stamp. I used the Everyday Circle ampersand sticker with some dimensional adhesive and added a few Summer Puffy Stickers to the right. I couldn’t stop without adding “the best” below my title using the Love This Life Stamp.
 

 
The 4″ x 6″ red-stripe tag was cut in half to create a 3″ x 4″ tag, and I added my typed journaling along the side. To embellish it a bit, I added the die-cut star circle from the July 2017 Kit, as well as the “love” and “this” Everyday Circle Stickers to the side with dimensional adhesive.
 
I love that the sunset photo on the bottom right matches the color scheme for this double-sided page, and that I’ve captured so many of my favorite summer foods and memories on one page! Be sure to check out the July shop items to document your summer stories, and use the hashtag #EllesStudio on Instagram when sharing!

Summer Exploring with Melissa Mann

Our new products for summer are perfect for documenting those last-minute adventures before the days get longer and the weather starts to cool down. Today, Melissa Mann is sharing how she documented a summer road-trip in her home state! Let’s see what she made.
 
Good morning, everyone! We are in the throes of full-fledged summer here in hot Florida! I jumped at the chance to create a layout using the Summer Journaling TagsSummer Puffy Stickers, and Summer Stamp to document a few drives around our fair town and of course, the camera is always taken along for the trip.
 

 

 
I printed a few different photos in different sizes that I have taken in our surrounding areas and trimmed them down with a white border. I layered two pieces of patterned paper from the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and then layered a piece of white cardstock on top. I pulled a couple of the 4″ x 6″ tags from the Summer Journaling Tags and played around with layering them with my photos. Once I achieved the look I wanted, I started adhering everything down with my sewing machine using white thread.
 

 
I used one of the 3″ x 4″ tags from the Summer Journaling Tags to type my journaling on; I cut the end of this card off so that I could tuck it in the upper right hand corner of my layout. I slipped the small piece I clipped off the bottom at the bottom of the layout. I placed my title in the lower right hand corner in a little square created by my photos. The Gray Alphabet Puffy Stickers worked perfectly to create a neutral with all of the color on my page.
 

 
I used the Summer Stamp and Love This Life Stamp to add detail around my layout and lastly, I used the awesome Summer Puffy Stickers and Everyday Circle Stickers in various places around my photos!

Sports Memories with Jill Sprott

Did you participate in a sport as a child that influenced the person you are today? Jill Sprott did, and she’s documenting a photo and her experience with soccer on a beautiful, introspective layout that she created using the July Kit and add-ons. Let’s see what she created.
 
With its bright, summery colors and bold designs, the July Kit from Elle’s Studio is ideal for sporty, outdoorsy pages, especially when paired with patterns from the Live Laugh Love collection.
 

 
Supplies | July 2017 Kit; Wood Veneer Cameras; Snapshot Acrylic; Cork Tags; Everyday Circle Stickers; AM PM Journaling Tags; Live Laugh Love 6 x 6 Paper Stack; Live Laugh Love 12 x 12 Paper Collection; Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers; Acrylic Stars – Spring Mix
 
Although it’s been nearly three decades since I last played a sport, my memories of playing soccer on multiple teams throughout my childhood are still very fresh in my mind. Even though I come from a soccer-obsessed family, the only photographic proof of that obsession is found in old albums featuring awkwardly-posed photos (like this one, taken during a drought in the mid-80s, which explains the lack of green grass and the reason that the photo works oddly well alongside the cork accent and woodgrain paper).
 

 
I usually prefer using candids on my scrapbook layouts, but this photo deserves attention nonetheless, as it brings to mind so many memories, which I documented here in list form. The journaling is prompted by the “Remember When” tag from the July 2017 Kit — in fact, those two words start off the list, with the word “when” repeating at the beginning of each phrase, and a question mark ending the list of recollections.
 

 
The title, which combines the Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers and the Snapshot Acrylic, does not just add dimension to the page, but also functions meaningfully in two ways — the page contains a literal snapshot of me, but the journaling also serves as a snapshot of my experience participating in a sport that transformed my childhood and no doubt influenced the person I am today.
 

Summer Pocket Pages with Alissa Fast

Hello! It’s Alissa here today, with another pocket page using the Summer Mini Collection. I love pocket pages and paper crafting in pocket pages is so much fun! I think it’s because I treat each pocket like a little page in a mini book. This little summer collection is perfect for a summer pocket page to document your summer days!
 

 
Supplies | Summer Journaling TagsSummer StampJuly 2017 KitLittle Acrylic StarsGray Puffy Alphabet StickersEveryday Circle Stickers
 
The Summer Journaling Tags include the perfect set of tags for all of your summer fun. My favorite summer activity is going to the fair. I used a couple 3″ x 4″ tags for the title and a design element. Elle’s tags are perfect just the way they are if you’re crunched for time or like a more simplistic look to your pages.
 

 
I added a few items from the July 2017 Kit to the tags and photos for added interest.
 

 
I stamped “dear summer” from the Summer Stamp and highlighted it with a brush pen to make it stand out from my journaling a bit more on the tag.
 

 

 
I adhered the acrylic stars on the outside of the page protector, which saves the lumpy, bumpy bulk inside the pocket.
 
Now, I challenge you to create a pocket page, or a regular page, using the Summer Journaling Tags and Summer Stamp. You’ll love the results!

Have a great day!

Documenting Your Own Adventures with Candace Perkins

Are you going on an adventure this summer? Maybe you’re hopping on a plane, or going on a long road trip. Or, you’re planning a stay-cation to relax and unwind? Don’t forget to document yourself in those memories! Candace Perkins is with us today to share how she did just that using the Title Builder collection and Travelogue Journaling Tags! Let’s take a look.
 
Hello again friends! It’s Candace back with you to share a fun project using the new Title Builder collection. I adore this new collection! It is perfect to combine words and phrases to create titles with interest and impact.
 

 
Supplies | July Kit, Everyday Circle Stickers, Title Builder Acrylic, Title Builder Wood Veneer, Title Builder Alphabet Stamp, Vellum Sentiments, Live Laugh Love Wood Veneers, Travelogue Journaling Tags
 
For my two-page spread, I started with a photo enlargement on the left side at 6″ x 8″. I wanted the spread’s title to stand out against the photo so I made the photo black and white and mixed the Title Builder Acrylic and Title Builder Wood Veneer elements.
 

 
On the right side of the spread I used circles as the main design idea. I punched 3″ and 2″ circles out of various tags from the Travelogue Journaling Tags. To balance the colors in the circles I added a few other circle embellishments like stickers, wood veneer, vellum shapes and die cuts. To stick with the circle theme, I typed my journaling in Photoshop inside a 2″ circle. For a little more interest I to popped up various circles on the page with dimensional adhesive.
 

 

 
I love that my husband snapped this picture of me and that I decided to be brave enough to tell the story: my story. I need to be better at telling my stories, I know that someday my kids will want to see me in the pages of our family scrapbook.
 
Have a beautiful day & tell YOUR stories!
