Chevron Inspiration with Allie Stewart

Inspiration is everywhere, and today Allie Stewart is showing us how she created an amazing background design on a scrapbook layout based on a 3″ x 4″ tag from our upcoming April 2017 kit. Look closely and you may see a few sneaks for what is to come on April 10th, including our new Live Laugh Love collection!

Hello there! Today I have a fun new layout to share using the BRAND NEW Live Laugh Love collection! I love all the colors and patterns, and couldn’t wait to dig in.


 
Supplies | Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Collection Pack, Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Live Laugh Love Cutouts, Live Laugh Love Bits & Pieces, Live Laugh Love Acrylic

The background for this page was inspired by a journaling tag in the upcoming April Exclusive kit! I loved the rainbow chevron, and recreated it on my layout using a diamond shaped punch and patterns from both the 12″ x 12″ and 6″ x 6″ papers. The arrangement of colors was based exactly on the journaling card.


 
Next, I used modeling paste and heart stencil to add a bit of mixed media to the page. One thing I love about the Elle’s Studio acrylics is how easy they make page titles! It takes all the work out of coming up with a title, and having to align individual letters. I embellished around the photo with Live Laugh Love Cutouts and the Bits & Pieces, and finished off with some puffy stickers!


 
I loved creating with Live Laugh Love, and I can’t wait to make many more projects using this beautiful collection! Be sure to pick up your own stash of these lovely products when they hit the shop on April 10th at 8am PST!

Using Smaller Patterns with Melissa Mann

Are you a 12″ x 12″ scrapbooker and have no clue what to do with the 6″ x 6″ paper stacks that are available with our collections? Today, Melissa Mann is sharing a perfect project to put those smaller patterns to work, and we know you will be inspired! Let’s take a look.

Good Morning, you guys! It’s spring time here on the Gulf Coast of Florida and the new paper collection, “Live Laugh Love,” by Elle’s Studio is a fabulous choice for capturing all those spring time memories. I plan on capturing some photos of the new garden my husband is installing in our front yard this spring, but in the meantime, I created this layout using a picture of my hubby from a lunch date we had at Texas Roadhouse last November.


 
Supplles (all available on April 10th) | Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Live Laugh Love Journaling Tags, Live Laugh Love Bits and Pieces, Live Laugh Love Word Labels, Live Laugh Love Washi Stickers, Live Laugh Love Enamel Dots, Live Laugh Love Stamp
 
I ALWAYS forget about the cute 6″ x 6″ paper stacks that are available with each collection. This time, I was determined to put it to good use and used it exclusively for this layout! The smaller designs on the 6″ x 6″ sheets of paper are a good fit when punching out small designs such as the circles that travel the length of my layout.


 
I punched out a variety of 1″ and 1-1/2″ circles from the 6″ x 6″ paper stack and placed them down the length of my layout in a slight diagonal line- some were cut in half and placed on the edges, and some were placed on top of other circles using foam dots. I wanted the appearance that the circles were breaking through the white card stock.


 
I used one of the Live Laugh Love 3″ x 4″ journaling tags for my typed journaling. I typed on the bottom half, and then cut the top part of the card and placed it on the opposite side underneath my picture.

I can’t wait to see what you create with the new “Live Laugh Love” collection, which will be available in the ES shop on April 10th, along with our April kit reveal! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

An Easter Treat with Maggie Massey

It’s April, which means Easter is almost here! We wanted to make sure that you didn’t miss the new Easter products that hit the shop last month, so a few of our DT members will be highlighting them this week! First up, we have Maggie Massey, who created the perfect Easter treat to grace anyone’s Easter basket!

Hello, hello everyone! Happy April!

Easter falls later in the spring again this year and I am sooo happy about that! Not only does that mean the weather here in the midwest may be a little less cold & rainy, but it also means I’ll have more time to get some fun projects done for friends & family.

I’ve already got a jump on this year’s treats and I have Elle’s Easter items to thank for it! I found some adorable egg cartons at Target (for just $1!) and I thought they’d be perfect for holding some paper eggs & candy!


 
I got to work cutting some “eggs” out of a few of my favorite patterned papers in the new Live, Laugh, Love Collection.

Then I filled the eggs with some candy, popped them into the cartons, and done! So easy… and so adorable!


 
Next, I wrapped up the cartons with some baker’s twine and added a tag created with the 3″ x 4″ bunny tag in the March 2017 Kit. It was so simple to create, and I love it!


 
This “tag” was created with the Happy Easter Acrylic and it is my favorite!


 
We will be dropping off our little care packages with some friends and neighbors during the kids’ Spring Break next week…and I’m so excited for their recipients to open them!


 
Supplies | Easter Stickers, Happy Easter Acrylic, Spring & Flowers Acrylic, March 2017 Kit, Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection (coming soon to the Elle’s Studio shop!)

Maybe we’ll even leave a few little candy-filled paper eggs around here- you know…for safe-keeping.

Thank you so much for taking a look! And Happy Easter!

Little Words Required with Neela Nalam

We are so excited to be highlighting projects using our new Live Laugh Love collection this month, and to start things off, we have a beautiful layout by Neela Nalam. Sometimes, there are very few words we can use to describe incredible moments in our lives, and Neela shows us below how we can let the product do the talking for us. Let’s take a look.

Hi everyone! This is Neela here and I am so excited to be kicking off a new month of projects using the new Live Laugh Love collection. Let me just tell you that every piece in this collection is so well thought out and every element coordinates so well together.


 
Supplies | Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Live Laugh Love Cutouts, Live Laugh Love Word Labels, Live Laugh Love Journaling Tags, Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers, Live Laugh Love Bits and Pieces, Live Laugh Love Wood Veneers, Live Laugh Love Stamp

I wanted to keep this layout simple and let the collection do all the talking. In fact, this may be one of the very few projects where I haven’t done any journaling. The bits and pieces in the collection say it all. I love when it all becomes so easy.

I backed the photo with journaling tags and three patterned papers from the 6″ x 6″ paper stack. The designs and colors are simply amazing. When I turned this around to glue it onto the 12″ x 12″ wood grain paper, I hated to hide the other side as the patterns and colors are simply awesome on that side too. I then cut out corners from a 12″ x 12″ patterned paper to add to my woodgrain paper and I stitched them down. The handwritten pattern and the red/pink pattern are from the same paper.


 
I added the bits and pieces, tags and word labels all around my photo. I love this photo of the kids and myself hanging out at a cafe in Prague. Whenever I see photos of me with the boys, I need to remind myself to make sure I have more of these. I also stamped the phrase “live laugh love” onto a label. I used wood veneer pieces and puffy stickers to add dimension to the layout. Last but not least, I added enamel dots in a visual triangle.


 
To say I adore this collection is an understatement and can’t wait to make a whole bunch of awesome projects with it.

Make sure you get your own Live Laugh Love supplies as soon as they are available in the Elle’s Studio shop on April 10th at 8am PST!
