{ Elle's Studio January Projects }

Here are my January projects for Elle's Studio. I love the new XOXO Valentine's line in the store. For the first layout I used the new XOXO Journaling Strips. They are long and perfect for journaling or as a background for a photo. I love this photo of Alex in the park. His favorite letter was "O" this Summer and I wanted to focus on that in this layout! I matted the photo on XOXO Paper. Other tags used: XOXO Journaling tags, XOXO Sweet word circle tags, 2009 Calendar tag, Scalloped Journaling circle tag and Helmar adhesive. Funny that both of my layouts are on a die cut patterned paper. Totally by accident. I layered a photo of Alex on these fun tags called Prompts, Patterns and Journaling tags. I repeated the circle design with Chic Note tags and Love Note circle tags for the trees. At the top I layered three Peppermint Journaling Tags. I cut them in half since only the tops are showing. That way I can use the other half on another project or two. I added a Vintage Fall Flash card to the right of the photo and Photograph Note tag for my journaling. For the card I used Peppermint Journaling tag and Vintage Love Flash card. I cut the Peppermint tag in half to make it look longer behind the Vintage tag. I cut the flowers from patterned paper and hand stitched the stems. For this fun little calendar I used Mocha Divine, Tropical and Ballet (Dotted Swiss) XOXO Bazzill paper that coordinates perfectly with our XOXO Valentine's line. The 2010 Calendar tags are adhered to XOXO Journaling Strips. There are three months on each page. The sides are tied with a ribbon. When June is over the ribbon unties and the calendar is flipped to the inside where there are the last six months. Let me know if you have any questions and I can take more photos. More details and a full Design Team gallery can be seen HERE.

***Elle is having a charitable auction for Haiti relief. She has put together a box full of 100+ products and the highest bidder takes it all!
