Snapshot of an Awesome Day Layout by Jen Schow

Today we get to see how this layout by Jen Schow came together, using our new products for July, from start to finish in a process video! We love how she combined our Title Builder products with our new acrylic piece and Stanley alphabet stamps from our shop – showing us that we can mix and match our shop items with our Title Builder products to give us endless title options!

I love the bright and fun colors included in this month’s kit. I chose a few of my favorite journaling tags, some summer photos, and some of the new Title Builder stamps (I’ve been itching to use them) and went to work on this simple layout!

Supplies | July 2017 Kit, Wood Veneer Cameras, July Labels, Snapshot Acrylic, Title Builder Alphabet Stamp, Title Builder Stamp, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Solid, Live Laugh Love 12 x 12 paper.

I love that you can easily combine the Title Builder stamps with all of the products that come out each month, and I used the “Snapshot” acrylic piece here.


Labels are so versatile and one of my favorite ways to use them is to leave them in a strip and journal inside each label. I went for list-style story here, so it was perfect!


I added a few embellishments, some doodled lines, and some patterned paper from the Live Laugh Love collection to complete this bright page. If you want to see just how it all came together, I have a process video for you below!

Capturing this little adventure with Melissa Mann

We are having so much fun seeing the awesome titles everyone has been creating with our new Title Builder products! Our Title Builder Stamp, Alphabet Stamp, Wood Veneer and Acrylic are perfect for perfecting your scrapbook layout and pocket page titles, and today Melissa is with us to show how she put these Title Builder products to use on her newest layout!

I was super excited to make a project this month using the new Title Builder products! The products are super fabulous! I am a HUGE fan of single word stamps in large fonts and love how much I will be able to incorporate this stamp set into my layouts, cards, and for my Project Life album.

I created a new layout using the “Live Laugh Love” paper collection and many pieces of the July 2017 kit and add-on’s.  I used a lot of linear lines while creating this layout – I think it helps to lead the eye across and helps the title pop a little more.  I also used a lot of layers in three groups on this project: the top part of the layout has the pictures layered against patterned paper, 3×4 journal cards, and lots of tags and other bits.

Supplies | Title Builder Stamp, Title Builder Acrylic, Title Builder Wood Veneer, July 2017 Kit, Everyday Circle Stickers, AM PM Journaling Tags, Cork Tags, Summer Puffy Stickers, and Live Laugh Love 12 x 12 Paper.

The middle section has some layering using the longer strips of paper with a layer of stitching and then circles cut from the 12 x 12 paper are adhered using foam dots. And finally, the title has a good bit of layering with the stitching and sub-title that is stamped underneath the main title. Each section reduces the layering  just slightly to lead the eye down the page.

We would love to see the projects that you are creating using the new Title Builder products and the July 2017 Kit + add-on’s! Be sure to share your creation on Instagram, using the hashtag #EllesStudio for a chance to be featured here on our blog, and win a gift certificate to the shop!

One Product, Three Ways: Cork Tags

Our new Cork Tags are large enough to be used as an element that stands out on all kinds of projects! Today we have Allie, Maggie, and Nancy sharing how they each used the Cork Tags on their projects! Let’s take a look at what they created.

Allie Stewart | I wanted to create an anchor for my page, and the Cork Tags were perfect for this. I used the July cut file to cut tags from patterned paper in the same size as the cork. I layered them at slight angles on the left edge of my page to create a focal border. I used paint, gelatos, and a stencil to create a coordinating background, and added my paper and embellishments. I finished off the page with the Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers, July labels, and Puffy Star Stickers!

My favorite part of the page is the “Hello” stamped on the Summer Cork Tag with the Title Builder Stamp. The cork is a perfect surface for stamping, and it takes ink beautifully.

Maggie Massey | These Cork Tags are so fun! I just love embellishments that feature the negative of a design – I think it creates the perfect opportunity to customize with different backgrounds and that’s just what I did with these pocket filler tags.

To create the “LOVE” tag, I laid down one of the washi stickers from the Live Laugh Love Collection on a tag from the July 2017 Kit, trimmed down the cork tag a bit, and simply adhered the tag over the washi. A few more little embellishments and a quick stamp from the Love this Life Stamp and this 3 x 4 inch tag was done!

The “SUMMER” tag was completed in pretty much the same way, but instead of washi tape, I adhered one of the die cut banner strips from the July Kit behind my cork tag.

And finally, to create the “TODAY” tag, I cut the word “life” from a 3×4 inch tag in the July Kit and adhered that to the larger 4×6 tag that was also found in the July Kit. Then I trimmed down the cork tags and placed that on top, along with a few other embellishments from the July Kit and Love this Life Stamp.

Nancy Damiano | This is a clean and simple design with an interesting twist. I began with a white card base, bordered with a beautiful strip of paper from the 6×6 Live Laugh Love paper pad. Next, a white rectangle was cut to the size of the cork tag. The word “today” was traced on that sheet of cardstock as a placement guide for the enamel dots. A variety of enamel dots in different sizes and shades were used to create a pebbled look. Next, I glued down the cork tag over the white cardstock with the enamel dots peeking through perfectly. To finish off the card, I used the simple stamped sentiment “more of this” just under the tag and a blue die cut from the July 2017 Kit. This was a fun and simple card to create!

We can’t wait to see how you use the new Cork Tags! Be sure to share your creation on Instagram, using the hashtag #EllesStudio for a chance to be featured here on our blog, and win a gift certificate to the shop!

Summer mini album with Michelle Wedertz

Today Michelle Wedertz is here to share that our journaling tags aren’t just for pocket pages! She has created an amazing mini album with the new Summer journaling tags, and we are thrilled to share it with you today!

When I received the Summer journaling tags in the mail, I instantly knew that I wanted to make a mini-album with them to document a recent day spent at a nearby water park. Even though these tags would work perfectly in a pocket page spread or a layout, I had been craving a different kind of a project and I thought this would fit the bill!


When I pulled together my supplies for this quick album, I went straight for the 6×6 paper pack from the Live Laugh Love collection and the cool Dated stamp. These two items are what I call “staple items” because they really go well with anything and help to create a solid foundation for my photos. The colors in the Live Laugh Love collection are also a perfect match to the Summer journaling tags! These few ingredients were really all that I needed to put the album together.

Supplies | Summer Journaling Tags, Summer Puffy Stickers (available July 10th),  Live Laugh Love 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Dated Stamp, Black Puffy Stickers, and Fun Outdoors Wood Veneers.

So there you have it, a quick and easy project that you can easily finish in one sitting!

Documenting Summer with Jennifer Chapin

We are excited to share with you today how Jennifer Chapin used our new summer products combined with our Live Laugh Love collection to create this fun layout!

Hi everyone! Jen here, and today I am sharing a layout I created using some of the Summer products available in the shop. I started by printing my photo directly on to the background of my page; this one is sized at 8.5×11. I have been loving that size lately!

Supplies | Summer Journaling Tags, Summer Stamp, Summer Acrylic Shapes, Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ paper, Live Laugh Love Washi Tape, Live Laugh Love Enamel Dots, and Tiny Star Stickers.

After my photo was printed, I used some papers from the Live Laugh Love collection to embellish the top and bottom, then stitched through those. I layered on some of the Summer journaling cards as well as the acrylic sun shape. I also had fun using the Summer stamp set!

After adding a few enamel dots and star stickers, along with my journaling, the layout was complete. This is a quick way to scrapbook a large photo that will have a big impact on your page. Thanks for stopping by the blog today and have a great week!
