Elle’s Studio – February 2019

The first month of 2019 done & documented!

It’s February 10th which means that the new kit from Elle’s Studio is available. Here is a look at my first layout that I created using this month’s kit. It’s my monthly 9×12 double pocket page layout summarizing our family stories from January 2019. Activities, artwork and all the members of my family are included on this page.

When I opened the kit, I knew that I wanted to design a page around the colourful 3×4 “Wonderful” card. I used the die cuts as well as the acrylic stars to continue the colour scheme around the layout.

I also used that monthly wood veneer to make a title card. I love that it boldly stands out and plan on using Elle’s veneers for each of my pages moving forward.

Hooray for a cluster of embellishments!

For my second layout this month, I decided to highlight the routine of our weekends. When I am documenting our family lives in a monthly format, m I know that I can’t record every story. I noticed that we had a routine established last month and I decided to document that in this 9 x 12 double pocket page. Also kinda cool? I used watercolour and the Large Jane Alphabet stamp to create that fun “Weekend” Title!!

When I saw the peachy coral card from this month’s kit, along with the grey heart and gold acrylic stars, I knew that I want to make a layout using a peach, black, white, grey and gold colour scheme.

So I choose my photos and I switched them to black and white. I used the peach and grey 3×4 cards to document the smaller stories of the weekends. I event listed all the meals that Aaron has learned how to cook over this past month using that cute knife, spoon and fork journaling card. I also used the Oh Happy Day Stamp on the 3×4 peach card to write a love letter to the weekends. I finished off the layout by creating a visual triangle with the gold acrylic stars.

Elles Studio: October 2018 Release

Oh hello, sweet boy!

It’s the 10th meaning that Elles Studio’s monthly kit and add ons are now on sale! It’s October and I am diving back into making a Traveller’s Notebook; creating a fall gratitude journal which contains some of my most favourite seasonal moments from year’s past. In this layout I am document our 2017 trip to Pingle’s farm to pick pumpkins and what my kiddos enjoyed from the experience.

As always, there are so many great die cuts a part of Elle’s monthly kit. I used them to add layers on my page as well as create a visual triangle.

In other news, I have started stamping on my layouts. I know this is super simple, but I think I am in love! This month, I used Elle’s thankful stamp to create a border on my page.

Major heart eyes for the Trick or Treat wood veneer this month!

For my second layout this month, I created a layout about my daughter’s first Halloween. I have documented this story before in a mini album highlighting Halloween through the years but I wanted to create a 6×8 layout for my girl’s story album. I just love that black plaid journaling card!

I used puffy stars and wood veneer to create a visual triangle around the page. The stars perfectly matched the cards and are a great edition to add some visual interest. Plus the stars matched the colours in my photos perfectly! Win-win!

I don’t know if it’s the change in season, and a new colour palette to work with but, overall, I love documenting fall moments, especially those from Halloween.

Thanks for looking!

Elle’s Studio: Love This Adventure

“Let’s jump in muddle puddles!”

It’s the 10th meaning that Elle’s Studio August kit is now on sale and ready for purchase! This month I was immediately drawn to the blue journaling cards, the new blue Jane stickers as well as white acrylic piece that says “love this”. As soon as I saw that, I knew I wanted to document our recent camping trip on the beach.

Right now, my kids love Peppa Pig, especially the scenes where the family jumps in muddy puddles. I love that my daughter helped my son to sandbar so they could reenact this scene. I love this story and documenting these small every day moments!
