Going For a Stamped Background with Suzanna Lee

Hiya scrappy peeps! It’s Suzanna here today! What are your feelings about stamps and stamping on your projects? I find that there tend to be two camps: you are either a stamper and aren’t phased by stamping on projects or you are terrified that you might horrifically ruin the project you have put a ton of time and effort into. Which are you? I’m hoping that by the end of this blog post, you will find that you TOO can stamp on your projects and that, truly, it is DO-ABLE, especially with Elle’s Studio stamps. They are so versatile and user friendly!

Supplies | July 2019 Kit, Shine Die Cuts, 4th of July Puffy Stickers, You Are My Sunshine Stamp

The whole background of this layout was created with stamps from the You Are My Sunshine Stamp which was released this month. Just stamps! It’s simple. But it’s incredibly effective, don’t you think?

I used two shades of blue ink with the line of stars at the top, left of the layout. As I moved down the page, I also tried to move gradually across the page, creating a diagonal line from top left to bottom right. The idea was to mimic the American flag. The red and white stripes are the polka dotted stamp, stamped twice, side by side. I used a ruler to help keep things lined up, you can’t see the seams on the bottom two rows. There is a definite learning curve to the process, which you can see in the upper stripes. I knew I was going to cover these with the photo, so I wasn’t worried.

My original intent has been to keep the elements on the top left of the layout blue, and those on the bottom right red. However, I really preferred having the sprinkling of both stamped and puffy stars (from the 4th of July Puffy Stickers) as a mix. The brightness of intermingled color moves you eye along that diagonal line better.

I also stamped “enjoying this” and “life is good” from the You Are My Sunshine Stamp amongst the red and white stripes. This added a series of subtitles to the page.

Bits and pieces from the July 2019 Kit and the Shine Die Cuts surround the photo. This is a combo swimming and 4th of July layout in that it’s a photo of my son in a donut eating contest on the morning of July 4th. When you have to get up early on a holiday and go to practice, you better believe there needs to be fun involved or these teenagers will have no part of it!

So? What do you think? Do you think you can do it; stamp on your project? If it’s the background and you’re stamping first, it’s completely doable! Go for it! I believe in you! Thanks for stopping in today!

Best Picture Ever Documented with Daniela

Our new Title Builder Vol. 3 products can be combined with any products from our included in our latest July release to create something truly special, and design team member Daniela is with us to share how easily it can be done, on a funny, colorful layout. Let’s see what she created!

Hi friends! It’s Daniela with you to share a new layout today! I had the pleasure to play with the new Title Builder products and I can tell you, this set is so, so fun! Again, we not only have the best words and phrases in this set, but also wood veneers and acrylics available in the Title Builder Vol. 3 Bundle. I love the many possibilities that this bundle offers because you can combine all the words in so many different ways!

For my layout I picked a picture that always makes me laugh. It shows my daughter after getting home from the New Year’s Eve party we had at our friends’ house. We got home at about 2 am. My daughter has never been up so late before, and she had such a good time and was so proud that she managed to not fall asleep before the turn of the year. She even stayed awake on the drive home. When we got home, I just took off me shoes and turned around to see my daughter sleeping on the stairs. The little pea must have been so exhausted that she fell asleep right away! I took a picture of her before taking her to bed. This is such a fun memory and the picture is one of my favorites, so I wanted to highlight it on a layout. This is how it turned out:

Supplies | Title Builder Vol. 3 Bundle, July 2019 Kit, Magical Memories Acetate Die Cuts, Magical Memories Acrylic Hearts and Stars, Pink Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I created a big title that covers the middle of the cardstock in a line with the center of this line lined up with the photo mat. I love combining different textures, so I used the Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp, the Acrylic and the Wood Veneer (all available in the Bundle) together and added some shiny acrylics and Acetate Die Cuts from the Magical Memories collection.

Some color splashes here and there and black drops attenuate the strict composition. To have a balanced page, I only used purple/pink and turquoise pieces for this page. I also stamped “good life” from the Title Builder Vol. 3 Stamp in the same tone of purple as the little tab that is placed under the picture.

The main elements on this page are those created with the Title Builder Vol. 3 Bundle. I only used a small amount of paper: one tag from the July Kit, and a paper heart fussy cut from another tag. I also added stripes cut from the Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack and the manufacturer strip from one of the papers in the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection.

I hope you like the way I used the newest products in the Elle’s Studio shop and I can’t wait to spot exciting titles created with the Title Builder Vol. 3 Bundle on social media! Have a great day!

Fun Times and Magical Memories with Tracey Fox

With all of the colors, patterns and embellishments found in the Magical Memories collection, it’s easy to coordinate your paper craft project to your favorite Disney character, which is exactly what Tracey Fox did on the layout she’s sharing with us today! Let’s take a look!

As a big theme park fan and Disney lover, I just adore the Magical Memories collection so much! I used lots of the items from the collection to create this page about meeting Donald Duck on my latest trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Supplies | Magical Memories Journaling Tags, Magical Memories Phrase Stickers, Magical Memories Acetate Die Cuts, Magical Memories Puffy Stickers, Magical Memories So Much Fun Wood Veneers, Magical Memories Acrylic Hearts and Stars, Magical Memories Fun Times Acrylic, Magical Memories Stamp, Cerulean Blue Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection

I laid out the initial design for my layout by putting three small photos of our meet-and-greet with Donald together to resemble a photo strip, adding a larger photo to the side. I knew right away that I wanted to use the collection’s Fun Times Acrylic, and I used it along with the the Cerulean Blue and Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers to build my title above and below the larger photo. A couple of the colorful Magical Memories Acetate Die Cuts worked perfectly behind the white acrylic piece to make sure it was readable against the my white cardstock background.

My favorite part of this layout design is the curve of embellishments I added to encircle my photos. There are so many fun embellishments in the Magical Memories collection that I had no trouble selecting an array of varying blue, yellow, and wood items from the Magical Memories Puffy Stickers, Acetate Die Cuts, Acrylic Hearts and Stars, and the So Much Fun Wood Veneers. I loved using the wood veneer shapes to build a Mickey head on my page, because I’m making sure to add a “hidden” Mickey on every layout in my Disney album. The teeny, tiny asterisk stamps from the Magical Memories Stamp provided a lovely touch of “pixie dust” around the circle.  

I balanced out the other side of the layout with some 12 inch strips of coordinating papers from the Noteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, a cute scallop acetate piece, and some sentiment stamps from the Magical Memories Stamp. The final touch on the layout was the most perfect phrase from the Magical Memories Phrase Stickers that says “hugs for my favorite character!” As much as I love the Disney characters, Donald really is my favorite, so I am so glad that this collection so perfectly helped me scrap these great photos.

Thanks for stopping by today and for checking out my layout! What magical memories are you documenting using the awesome Magical Memories collection? I hope you’ll share them in the Elle’s Studio Facebook Group so we can take a look!

Sunshine Greeting Cards with Mary-Ann Maldonado

You don’t always need a reason to send a card. Just receiving something handmade in the mail is enough to brighten someone’s day, and the cards that Mary-Ann Maldonado is sharing with us today are sure to do just that! Let’s take a look!

Hello Elle’s Studio fans! Man, do I love making cards; especially with the goodies from the monthly kit and extras. I typically make several with my left overs each month to mail. I adore mixing colors and creating layers with different patterned papers and topping them with fun embellishment!

Today I’m sharing two different cards created with the SAME July 2019 Kit and extras, but they turned out completely DIFFERENT!  

Supplies | “You are my sunshine” card: July 2019 Kit, July LabelsShine Die Cuts, Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack; “Sunshine” card: July 2019 Kit, Shine Die Cuts, Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Sunshine Gold Acrylic


I have been trying to use the monthly labels differently each month. Last month, I added them as they are behind my photo as a base. On this card using the July Labels, I cut the sheet in rows. I backed every other color strip with foam for dimension for a different, fun and colorful way to use the labels!

Color color color! Pattern pattern pattern! Mix it up! It all goes together if you just give it a try!  I don’t think there is a project I create that doesn’t have color or foam tape for dimension.  I also used foam behind the sentiment from the Shine Die Cuts.

For this fun card, I mixed colors and patterns again. The 4″ x 6″ journaling tags in the July 2019 Kit create the perfect base to a card. On this card, I trimmed down the yellow polka dot journaling tag to create a banner.

Apparently my theme for these cards is sunshine! I added the Sunshine Gold Acrylic with a thin line of wet glue. What more does a project need?  Just a touch of patterned paper, layered heart die cuts and a big ‘ole’ acrylic! Sometimes, when you finish a project, you just need something a little extra.  I decided on a touch of twine. It was too late to wrap it around the banner, so I pierced through the entire front of the card and threaded the twine through, tying it in a bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you create some sunshine greetings to make someone’s day with your July Kit and extras!

Patriotic Pockets with Sabrina Poole

Most of us just celebrated the 4th of July, and maybe you have a collection of photos on your phone or DSLR of picnics, patriotic decorations and fireworks! How will you document them? Today Sabrina Poole is with us to share how she documented her holiday, and we know that it will inspire you to use your July Kit and add-ons to do the same! Let’s take a look!

Hey everyone! This is Sabrina and I am so excited to show you my patriotic 4th of July spread, and I hope it inspires you to document your festive holiday photos, too!

Supplies | July 2019 Kit, 4th of July Journaling Tags, Shine Die Cuts, 4th of July Puffy Stickers, You Are My Sunshine Stamp, Everyday Phrases Vol. 2 Stamp

I documented our summer 2018 adventures in a 9″ x 12″ album and I knew that the 4th of July holiday needed a double page spread. I picked out lots of firework photos and also made sure to include photos throughout the day from all the activities. Fireworks photos are easy to come by, but capturing little things from the day are just as important as well—like my daughter jumping for joy with the sparklers, or my husband so happy with his bag of fireworks.

Once I had all my photos printed, I got out the special 4th of July Journaling Tags and 4th of July Puffy Stickers—the foundation for my spread. The first tag I chose was the July 4th 4″ x 6″ tag because that made for a perfect title! I then stamped some black stars from You Are My Sunshine Stamp and added 4th of July Puffy Stickers with one matted on a red label from the Shine Die Cuts.

My next step was to build, or add fun details to my various 3″ x 4″ tags. I added more 4th of July Puffy Stickers, stapled on die cuts from the July Kit, and the Shine Die Cuts and added stamped sentiments. I loved using the various 4th of July themed products to add to my journaling tags. Not only did it make my tags more personalized, but it creates great movement around the spread. 

For my main journaling spot, I used the colorful star label tag from the 4th of July Journaling Tags and documented some favorite parts of the day. I also added a red banner from the 4th of July Puffy Stickers and the “documented” die cut from the July Kit

Overall, this was such an awesome and challenging (in a good way!) spread to put together. I tend to forget to document this holiday, but these new Elle’s Studio products helped make documenting it easy! I hope this project and the Elle’s Studio goodies help you document your 4th of July memories!

Creative Ways to Use Your Stamps with Steph Grimes

Stamping is such a great technique to create custom embellishments, sayings, titles and more on your projects, and Steph Grimes is here to share some ideas on how to get creative with them! We know you’ll love these ideas, as well as the patriotic project that she’s sharing using our July 2019 Kit and extras!

Hi everyone! It’s Steph here and I’d like to share a layout with you that uses the new July 2019 Kit and extras. For this project, I had this adorable photo of my pup and our “nephew pup” Benny in their patriotic hats from 4th of July. I was really inspired by one of the 3” x 4” tags in the July 2019 Kit that had a few star banners running across it and had the idea to replicate this with the line of stars stamp from the You Are My Sunshine Stamp. That was the starting point for this layout, and it lead me to think of all the ways I could use the stamps on this layout. Today I’d like to share a few of those ideas with you!

Supplies | July 2019 Kit, 4th of July Puffy Stickers, You Are My Sunshine Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – OutlineLarge Jane Alphabet Stamp – Stars, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – Solid, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die

1.  Mix and Match and Layer Them Up

One way to use your stamps to create interesting looks and effects is to mix and match and layer them together. Here, I used the Large Jane Alphabet Stamps (solid, outline, and stars) to create a visually interesting title. I used multiple colors that matched my layout to create each letter in the title, but I also could have used one or two colors only and achieved a totally different look! The Large Jane Alphabet Stamps lend themselves perfectly to this creative use of stamps, especially with so many awesome coordinating sets, but I also did some stamp layering along the edge of the layout with the “enjoying this” phrase from the You Are My Sunshine Stamp. What stamps do you have in your stash that you can mix and match and layer to create new unique looks?

2.  Try Second and Third Generation Stamping

This technique is a great way to add a little interest to your layout! Multi-generation stamping is when you ink your stamp and stamp it once, then stamp it again multiple times without re-inking. The effect is that each time you stamp the image or words show up lighter and lighter. I love to use this technique with sentiment and phrase stamps to really drive home a message. BONUS: I also mixed this technique with the first and did my multi-generation stamping layered on top of a graphic stamped image!

3.  Reconfigure Your Stamps

I’ve been stamping for a long time (about 18 years!) and stamp manufacturing has come a long way in that time! When I first started stamping, stamps were all rubber, mounted on wood blocks, and this technique was simply not possible with wood-mounted stamps. However, many stamps now are manufactured as clear acrylic stamps which makes it easy as pie to reconfigure and manipulate your stamps to create new looks.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I was inspired by the tag in the July Kit with the star banners running across it. I wanted to recreate this look on my page, but didn’t want to fussy-cut those stars out of the tag. The You Are My Sunshine Stamp includes an awesome straight line of stars that I knew I could manipulate to make my banners. When I mounted the clear stamp to my clear stamping block, I just bent it into a curved shape, like so:

This allowed me to stamp my banners just as I wanted to and when I was finished, I put my stamp back into the envelope as it was originally! For other ways to reconfigure your stamps, you can add multiple stamps to a single block or cut stamps apart and use them separately to create new images. This last method is definitely permanent, so it’s not my favorite option, but if you’re brave, go for it!

What are your favorite ways to use stamps? I hope you will try some of these techniques on your upcoming projects and share on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio to let us know how it goes!

Punching Out Fun with Ashley Laura

Our July reveal is tomorrow, but have you had a chance to use all of the last bits and pieces from your June kit and add-ons? Don’t fret! Just grab a few punches and get to work with the inspiration that design team member Ashley is sharing with us today!

Hey everyone! It’s Ashley here with fun project focusing on using up those scraps from your June kit and extras. One of my go-to ideas for using up scraps is pulling out my tools! I decided to create a 12″ x 12″ layout, and mainly focus on using some of my favorite punches. 

Supplies | June 2019 Kit, Summer Phrase StickersSummer Puffy Stickers, Summer Wood Veneers, Magical Memories Journaling Tags, Magical Memories 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Magical Memories Puffy Stickers, Magical Memories Fun Times Acrylic

You may love the patterns and color schemes of the pocket tags included in the monthly kits, but sometimes we have an overflow after we’ve completed our pocket projects. I love to cut these up and use them in unconventional ways. This “Soak Up the Sun” 4″ x 6″ tag from the June Kit was the perfect card to punch out a square to have my photo peeking through!

I also love to cut pieces from tags that could serve as an anchor for journaling. The “summer playlist” 3″ x 4″ tag included several journaling spots to create a list. I simply typed on the orange labels and cut them out to add the details of this day around my layout. 


One of my favorite tools is the circle punch. Oh my beloved! They’ve been around for a while, but for me, they’ll never get old. I used this punch on several patterns from the Magical Memories 6 x 6 Paper Stack and tags in the June Kit to add some fun little movement around the page. I also cut a few smaller icons from the tags to tuck around the larger circles.

For those of you who have tons of journaling tags and patterned papers and you’re unsure of how to use them, go ahead and get out those forgotten tools to create something new!

Show us how you used your June kit and extras in your projects! Post on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio, or in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group !
