Elle's Studio Guest Designer


I'm so honored to be guest designing for Elle's Studio this month. I've been a big fan of their products for a long. Then I met the Elle! And I became an even bigger fan. She's such a kind, and giving person!

This first layout is about the costumes I create for my kids each year. I've tapered off on the sewing quite a bit, since my two oldest said they were too old to dress up. I do miss seeing them going from house to house trick-or-treating. But can I say that I'm also a bit glad that I don't have to make three costumes anymore? Ha! I know... nice mom... I've been trying to convince my youngest to go as the Lorax this year, but he's having none of it. He wants to be a tree, but "not a Truffula tree. Just a normal tree." I guess he was reading my mind...

That Halloween card was perfect for my journaling. I ran it through my printer, and then I couldn't resist adding one googly eye to the O. So Despicable Me minion, no? (Maybe the littlest could be a minion...)

This next layout is all Fall also. It's about one of last visits we took to our favorite pumpkin patch in Philly. It's this amazing, organic farm with the cutest farmer's market.

I used three 4x6 journaling cards as the base for the photos. For two of those, I trimmed around the "tags", and tucked the photos underneath. It creates the look of layers without adding more bulk.

And I made a card. I cut one of the smaller journaling cards apart to use the pretty stripes. I layered it with another card, and added some adorable Lawn Fawn stamps on top. The chevrons are from one of the cut apart tags. Easy peasy!

Thanks for dropping by. And thanks to Elle's Studio for asking me to guest! Don't forget to drop by their blog for the design team gallery reveal!

I love the bright happy colors of their stuff and REALLY love how you used those cards as photo mats - brillliant (imagine me rolling my "r" there - more fun that way )
