Scrapbooking with Elle's Studio


12 x 12 Layout
 (click on layout for larger view)

Hello friends.  I found some time to scrapbook yesterday!  It's been a month since I've done any crafting and it was so wonderful to just relax and be creative for a change.

I'm loving the trend of "clustering" in scrapbooking.  I recently discovered a company that creates lots of little paper embellishments that are perfect for clustering.  Elle's Studio carries stamps as well and that sealed the deal for me. I LOVE that the sentiments / journaling are versatile and can be used for so many different photo themes.  

There are lots of opportunities to win free stuff over on the blog HERE.  I'm not sure if you are required to use Elle's Studio products in the sketch challenges or not.  It doesn't say you have to. This project is for their April 3 challenge to create a layout "using Elle's Studio tabbed tags as a frame".

There are weekly sketch challenges on Thursday's and other challenges on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday's.

For the layout above I used the following Elle's Studio products :

The Sweet Life Tidbits
The Sweet Life Snippets
The Sweet Life Cutouts
Serendipity 3" Circles
Daily Details stamp set

Washi Tape : My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found 3".    Patterned Paper : Pink Paislee "Portfolio".  
OLD supplies from my stash - Rub-ons by Scenic Route and 7 Gypsies "Fortunes".     Flower : Prima.

Cross your fingers and toes for me .... my wish list is long!

This layout was also designed for the sketch challenge over at Creative Scrapper.

I designed this one using a sketch from Delightful Inspiration.  

I used a stencil, modeling paste and acrylic paint to create the stars in the background.  Most of the embellishments used are stickers.  I did dig out some old chipboard stars as well.  Patterned paper and sticker embellishments are Fancy Pants "Park Bench".  I wish I had some of the other embellishments in this line!!  Love them!  Aren't those little paper bags / tags and buttons too stinken' cute.  But my LSS only had the paper and stickers.  


Mixed Media
I did get my March ATC's done for the 52 card Pick-up Class / group, but haven't had time to post them.  I think I took some step by step photo's so hopefully I will have a tutorial to share as well!

Cards
I'm working on some 10 minute cards for a Take Ten deadline.  So hope to share those soon as well.

Hope you have been finding lots of time to craft!  
hugs, Melisa
