{ Elle's Studio May Projects }

It's that time again. Elle's Studio Inspiration gallery is up! I loved playing with the new A Sweet Summer Collection. Here are my projects.

A Sweet Summer collection goes perfectly with this paper from Little Yellow Bicycle that I used for my background. I used Sweet Summer Mini Papers, Sweet Summer Flash Card, Sweet Summer Scallops, Sweet Summer Note Tags, Sweet Sumer Tiny Tags and Sweet Summer stamps. I love all these colors together. I layered October Afternoon paper over Sweet Summer polka dot Mini Paper to create the large banner.

I stamped the flowers on the Sweet Summer Mini Papers and used my exacto knife to cut out the middle parts. I added some buttons and crepe paper streamer that I sprayed with Shimmerz.

My second layout is about Alex's Summer favorites. I had such a hard time choosing a photo. I have too many and I couldn't decide. The background paper arrived in a box from Cards Magazine. The collection is called About A Girl by Fancy Pants Designs...hehehe. I added yellow and white paint to the background.

I used Sweet Summer Candy Shop tag, Sweet Summer Note tags, Sweet Summer journaling tags, Sweet Summer Scallops and Sweet Summer Tiny Tags. These Sassafras Lass banner stickers are really sticky and sometimes I am not sure where I want the sticker. I add baby powder to the back. That way I can play around and when I am ready I use glue dots to stick it down. Here, I used my sewing machine to stitch it to the background.
I painted the edges of Heidi Swapp butterfly and added a flower and a button to the center. I added a little banner to a Journaling Circle tag.

I used Sweet Summer Mini Papers for this card background and the leaves. The flower is nested over a Birthday Journaling tag and I stamped the sentiment on Vintage Baby Label Cut Out.
I added my crepe paper ruffle, crepe flower that I made and my crinkled ribbon.

Have a great weekend.
