Little Moments with special guest Elizabeth Gardner

Today we have another of our favorite scrapbookers here to inspire you with her use of Elle’s Studio products! This girl is colorful, both with her hairstyle and with her projects, and we love everything she creates. Please welcome Elizabeth Gardner to the Elle’s Studio blog!

Every once in a while you come across a collection of papers where you just can’t pick a favorite. You want to use every single one, on the same page. I knew I had to do that with these papers from the Little Moments collection. They have such a gorgeous color palette and I just LOVE how they look all cut up and mixed together!

To achieve this look, I punched patterned paper from the Little Moments 12” x 12” paper collection and 6” x 6” paper stack into squares, then cut those pieces diagonally, mixing them up and using both sides of the paper. I roughed up the edges of the patterned paper just a bit to give the page some texture, then I placed the triangle pieces back into square shapes on my background and sewed diagonally through each one. Boom! I used them all, and they are beautiful!

On the right, I balanced my squares with some tags from the May 2016 exclusive kit, Little Moments bits and pieces, and Little Moments word labels above my journaling.

How great is The Good Life acrylic element as a title on the nice white cardstock background? SO great! I finished off this side with some stars from the Good Stuff puffy stickers and some ink splatters and called my page complete!


Hello there! I’m so excited to be guest designing for Elle’s Studio. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a mom of four, wife to a man I refer to only as “Hottie,” & owner of a velcro dog named Mr. Snicklefritz McGee. I am addicted to playing roller derby and changing my hair color. I’m also a stone cold crafting/art/scrapbooking nerd and am proud of it! I get ridiculously excited over watercolors and scrappy products hot off the presses. I have tried my hand at just about every medium of art but scrapbooking is my constant. It’s my jam. I typically do pocket pages and 12×12 pages… at least 4 a week. So I guess you could say I am one productive nerd! Thanks for having me. It was a pleasure!

You can find more of Elizabeth’s work at her blog, My Scrappy Life, and on her Instagram feed! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome layout, Elizabeth!
