“Inspired By” with Melissa Mann

We have loved being inspired by our design team in 2018, and have loved seeing what projects have sprung from the inspiration shown in our design team gallery each month! For our final “inspired by” post this year, Melissa Mann is creating something new from a layout created by Tracey Fox. Let’s see what she created:

Good Morning! It’s Melissa here with you, with a brand new layout using the leftover bits and pieces from my December kit. 

My challenge this month was to lift a project from one of my fellow design team members. One of my favorites from November was a layout originally created by Tracey Fox. I LOVED her “Snow Day” layout’s theme and design and decided to lift both! Here’s what her layout looked like:

Here is my “inspired by” layout:

Supplies | December 2018 Kit, December Print and Cut Labels, Cork Tabs, Everyday Puffy Labels, Winter Puffy Stickers, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Wonder and Joy Stamp, Merry and Bright 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Noteworthy 12 x 12 Paper Collection

I pretty much fully copied the design of this layout. I layered a panel of grid patterned paper from the Noteworthy 12 x 12 Paper Collection´╗┐ on the white card stock and then spritzed some black ink on either side of the panel of paper. I stitched this paper down using my sewing machine.

Once the ink dried, I layered some of the Merry and Bright 6 x 6 Paper Stack patterns and a 4″ x 6″ journaling tag from the December 2018 Kit on top of the grid pattern paper and then layered my photo and the three 3″ x 4″ journaling tags on top. I journaled on two of the cards using my typewriter and the other tag was used as a base for the title of my layout.

After I adhered these components down, I layered my embellishments around the layout. I used puffy stickers, label stickers, cork tabs, and various stamped sentiments on December Print and Cut Labels.

I hope you are enjoying this month’s goodies! Remember, that we have an Elle’s Studio Facebook group and we LOVE to see the projects you are creating using our products!
