{ Documenting with Elle’s Studio }

Hello, I have a blog post today on Elle’s Studio BLOG showcasing our April kit and extras. In March I started creating a Traveler’s Notebook, one for each month, documenting daily events. It’s been a little adjustment. I take plenty of photos, I just need to figure out a better schedule for sitting down and getting it all in the notebook. I make the notebooks myself and I started creating them a few years ago for December Daily and Listers Gotta List.

Here is a spread I am sharing today.

I added a piece of patterned paper to the background from the Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack. I adhered my photo to one of the journaling cards from April 2017 Kit. I created a hinge with a piece of the Live Laugh Love Washi Tape Stickers. Above the photo, I used the “make me happy” stamp from the Sights and Sounds Stamp. I also added the “can’t get enough” die cut to the bottom of the photo so that I can lift it up to reveal what is underneath.

Underneath is another journaling card where I added all the things I am doing currently. This card went perfectly with the “currently” stamp from Live Laugh Love Stamp. It was a pretty quick and easy page. I love creating these little hidden areas for journaling, especially if you run out of the room or want to keep your journaling private.

Let me know if you have any questions about the project or Traveler’s Notebook.

{ Impression Obsession DT challenge – You take the cake }

Hi and welcome to our  Impression Obsession challenge – You take the cake.

Here is a card I created.

Happy birthday by Daniela Dobson

As much as I love fussy cutting, it is really nice to have dies to match all the stamps, including the little, tiny roses that I added around the die cut circle. I am talking about a brand new artist at Impression Obsession: Peggy Jo Ackley and Pink Ink Clear stamps and matching dies. This beautiful set is called Party Cakes and Party Cakes Dies.

I stamped the images on watercolor paper and used my watercolors to color the image, including the tiny roses. The background is stamped with a stamp called Graph Paper, and that is exactly what it looks like. I finally got to use my brand new dies called Scribble Circles. Aren’t they fun? I die cut them from the same watercolor paper where I colored the images so some of the watercolor was left on the background. I love that. “Happy birthday” sentiment is from More Basic Greetings stamp set.

There is a huge 50% off sale going on at Impression Obsession. Make sure you check out the stamps.

Here is one more close up of the image. I added twine to the background card base and some enamel dots I created from Nuvo Crustal Drops. The colors are amazing. For my dimensional adhesive I used my trusty 3D foam squares from Therm O Web.
