{ Elle's Studio April Projects }

Elle's Studio April Inspiration gallery is up an full of beautiful creations. While you are there check out the new items including A Sweet Summer collection.

Here are my projects for this month.
This layout just came together in a flash. I wanted to use the cute photos of Alex in the rain playing with my umbrella.  The background paper is Fancy Pants Designs, filled with adorable clouds. I sprayed a touch of Grape Escape and Sunset Strip Vibez on the background. The large April calendar tag is from 2010 Vintage Calendar set. You get all 12 in the set and each month is a different color.
I sprayed white crepe paper with Grape Escape Vibez and I added Sassafras Lass Banner sticker over the top. I tucked Vintage Spring Flash Cards (umbrella and rain) under the paper and pinned Date and Place tag over the top with Making Memories pin.
I love how all the colors fit perfectly together. That is why I love these tags so much, they are so versatile. I used Chic Note tag for my journaling.

How about a pink layout??? This one is fun and all for me! The photos are from our visit to the Dallas Arboretum. I used My Mind's Eye paper for the background. I layered the photos over Making Memories journaling note that I stamped with Cover-a-card Medallion stamp that was left over from another project. I love those Vintage Flash cards, they come with so many different words on them. This one was left over from Spring Flash Cards.
My flower is made from layers of pink crepe paper over Granny's Doily circle tag. The butterfly fabric brad is from The Paper Studio. I used another little Sassafras Lass banner and layered it over Vintage Spring Flash card. I added little Magenta Shimmerz paint dots to the foam letters and I stamped some larger dots on the background.
The blue flower is made out of crinkled ribbon that I made. I sprayed it with Blue Jeans Vibez and then painted the top with Angel Wings Shimmerz paint. I ruffled pink crepe paper under Granny's Doily Circle tag. I love using Helmar adhesive to adhere crepe paper. I added some sparkle stickers to a Chic Date Tag and my journaling is on a Chic Journaling tag.

My last little project is my garden journal. I had so much fun making this. We planted a garden last week, our first, so I need to record everything.
It has five, fun pages filled with little goodies.
I will come back with another post to show you all the fun details and how I made this little album.
