Here is the awesome April kit:

Here are all the add ons this month:

And of course don't miss out on the digital. It is always so much fun to use them as is or modify them to suit your needs.

Below are all images of the Live Laugh Love collection. There is so much goodness in it.



I love how beautifully the April kit coordinates with the new collection. I mainly used the April kit for this layout and used the papers in background from the collection. I love acrylic words. They are perfect for titles. I also used the digitals from this month here. I resized the a printable that has Fun printed on it and then typed my journaling on it. I then used the bits and pieces to add some phrases. One of the most fun parts of the kit is the wood confetti. It was fun to use them to make different shapes. I made a flower with the diamonds and added and an enamel dot in the center. Hope you like this layout.

I made this layout with a 3x4 journal card from the April kit on which I typed my journaling. I also cut the labels down to 3x4 size and stamped the phrase from the stamp in the April kit with matching colors. The striped paper on top is from the Live Laugh Love collection. I did some zig zag stitching a the border. I also used the digital cut file from this month and backed the circles with 6x6 papers from this new collection. I then added the wood confetti, enamel dots and puffy stickers in those circles for fun. I used the hearts to make butterflies. 

I made this layout entirely with the Live Laugh Love collection. This was already up on the Elle's Studio blog last week. I thought I will share it here too just in case you missed it. I love every element  of this collection. The colors, the designs, the theme and phrases. I love it. You can get the collection here (Affiliate Link)

March kits and add ons from Elle's Studio

Hello Spring!!! That's was the first thought when I saw the March kits from Elle's Studio. I love the colors so very much this month. I think it is especially well suited for boys. Since I have two boys it made me really really happy. Girl moms, you can use the kit too... you will see my fellow design team mates doing it in such a gorgeous way.

Here is an image of the March kit:

I can't express in words how much fun I had creating with these products. I used the main kit, add ons and the digitals to create my projects. I will be sharing two projects here today and my third project will be shared on the Elle's Studio blog at the end of the month.

Here is the first project that I created. I decided to create a 9x12 pocket page layout. I hardly ever do this. It is a great way to go with the Elle's Studio kits. 

This is a layout about my little one being cute and silly. All the cards in the kit are so amazing and versatile. They can be used for so many different types of layouts. My favorite part of this layout is that pocket with sequins. I used the fuse tool to close it shut. All the little elements and details on this layout make my heart happy. One of my favorite add-on is the stamp set this month. Make sure you get it. Here is a close up shot of the journaling that I did.

Now here is the second project. This is a traditional 12x12 layout. 

For the left 1/3rd of the layout, I used a paper from the Sunny Days collection. I cut out my photo in the shape of a star to mimic acrylic stars in the add on. I loved the stars so much that I had use them all on this layout. I also love the colors on the bright vellum Sentiment circles. I used the 'spring' acrylic word as my title and stamped 'BREAK' underneath it with the Jonah alphabet stamp set

If you do plan on buying the kits, it would be great if you went through these links as I will get a commission based on what you buy and thanks in advance for that.

February Kit

February Digitals

February Add Ons

As you can see, the colors are so awesome. Everything goes so well with each of the other elements.  

Now here are my projects. For the first project, I created a 9x12 layout of my son and the stuffed toy that every kid in his preschool class got a chance to take home. And yes, the name of the stuffed elephant happened to be Elle.

For this layout, I used a bunch of cards of cards and die cuts from the feb kit. I also used the digital cut files to cut out the Hello speech bubbles and backed them with a card from the kit. I then stamped the title with the Malia lowercase stamp. I also love those acetate circle hearts from the Feb add ons. The colors are all so pretty.

For my next project, I wanted to make a different type of project instead of a layout. I made an accordion fold album about my younger son. He is such a goofball and such a cutie. I love the current stage he is in so much. He makes us all laugh all the time.

Here are images from the project. The size of each page is slightly larger than 4x3. I tried to stick to a color scheme of yellow, grey and orange. I loved the outcome.

The title page: That wood veneer from the add on is awesome.

First page: I love the stars card from the Feb kit. I stamped the word 'REMEMBER' from thea dd on stamp set. I typed my journaling on the card. The currently word is from the digitals. I changed the color to grey.

Second Page: The speech bubble stickers and wood veneer stars from the Feb add ons are so cute.

Third page: I sure do love me some bulleted journaling. Again using some digitals here and that star again.

Fourth page: I changed the purple colored dialogs to yellow in the digitals to go with my color scheme. I so love this simple page.

Fifth page: Again, typing my journaling on a card from the feb kit and used some die cuts and digitals.

Last Page: How cute is this hearts card fro the Feb kit!?! I stamped the date:, subject: with black ink and typed the date and my son's name.

Here is the completed accordion book. I love the outcome. I also love the grey, orange and yellow colors throughout this project.

I really love how you can extend the use of the kit with the digitals.

18th Anniversary!

Hi Everyone! Today is our 18th marriage anniversary! I can't believe where and how time flies. So it is very fitting that I am up on the Elle's Studio blog with a project celebrating this. The January kit is simply awesome to document this!

For this project, I loved using a whole bunch of digital files - the cut files and the printables. Do check them out.

Here is a peek of the project. Do stop by Elle's Studio for more details on the project.

Below are links to the products used in this project:

Elle's Studio January Kit Projects

I am still not over the fact that Elle asked me to be on the Design team for Elle's Studio. So January Kit went live today. I am working mainly with this kit and extras for these projects. I love how versatile this kit is. It prompted me to create two very different themed projects. 

For the first project, I decided to list my top ten goals for the year 2017. It is very simple layout that conveys the message. I used a large photo of me in the background and stamped the word goals directly on the photo. For not being the best stamper, that is pretty brave for me. I am in love with the Jonah Stamp. I know I am going to be stamping way more and improving this skill this year. I love all the stamps that the Elle's Studio carries. Stay tuned for more projects with stamping. The card on which I wrote my goals is from the January kit and the background striped paper is from the Little Moments collection. Also make sure you get your pack of sequins. The colors coordinate with the kit so well. 

For the second layout, I decided to go way back in time. I am not sure why, but the card that says "You are so very loved" totally reminded me of this photo of my boy when he was about 7 months old. I just absolutely had to use this photo. Over time, I have learnt to ignore that pinks are for girls only. I don't care - I will use pink for boys and blue for girls. I have two boys and these days I seem to be using pinks on their layouts without hesitation :). On this layout I mainly used the cards from the January kit. The wood veneer and the stickers are from the January extras and they all coordinate so well.

Hope you enjoyed both my layouts and will get yourself some of these awesome products. Just remember that Elle's Studio has a subscription option available to those who want to be guaranteed a kit each month, lock in the launch day special price of $9.99, and receive FREE (USA) or reduced (International) shipping on anything added to your box each month on the 10th. Isn't that an awesome deal!?! Below are links and images of the products I used for these layouts!
