Mini Album Pages with Special Guest Rory Vaillancourt

We are so excited to welcome Rory Vaillancourt as our guest designer for the month of November! Rory has a beautifully clean and colorful style, and we love how she mixes things up with sizes different than the normal 12” x 12” layouts. Today she’s sharing some pages from her mixed album, which includes her planner, journaling and scrapbook pages! How awesome is that?


A big excited, “hello” to you today!  I am thrilled to be guest designing here at Elle’s Studio this month.  I made a couple of pages for my memory/journal/planner mini album with some of the fantastic products in my box of joy, which included the ‘Tis the Season collection!


I printed and cut my photo into a tag shape. I had a hard time choosing which wood veneer to use, since  I love them all!  I finally settled on my favorite ones from the Autumn Wood Veneers and Autumn Wood Veneers Attachers.  My story is on a second tag under the photo, documenting a perfect fall day.

I continued the layout with this title page.  I cut out the leafy branches out of the awesome wood grain paper from the ‘Tis The Season 12” x 12” paper collection.  I love the wood grain paper alongside the white grid, which also came  from the same collection pack.  I kept the title simple, true to my style, using the Fall Acrylic. The acrylic and wood veneer contrast each other well and make for interesting texture on the page.


My second layout is all about my photo wish list this year.  I took this photo of my daughter a few years ago and want to get back outside with Santa hats and dogs in tow to get some more shots like this.


The Good Cheer Acrylic piece from the ‘Tis The Season collection was just perfect for this layout.


The accompanying page includes the photo wish list.  I did a print and cut of three large tickets and added my top three photos I would like to get this holiday season.  The tickets are topped with three papers from the ‘Tis The Season 6” x 6” paper stack.  The scale of the patterns on the 6” x 6” papers worked beautifully for this and added a splash of colour.  I dangled all the tickets on that fabulous acrylic star from the Large Acrylic Star pack and layered up the Acrylic Christmas Trees at the bottom right to balance everything out. To finish it off, I added a tiny star from the ‘Tis the Season puffy stickers.


I must say, all the ES acrylic pieces are outstanding and match the coordinating ES products to a “T”.  I love adding them to my projects!
