Puppy Love with Tessa Buys

Primary colors are always an easy choice. They’re neither masculine or feminine, and can be useful for a variety of subjects. If you’ve seen our June 2017 Kit, you’ll know that it’s full of bright colors, featuring a lot of red, blue and yellow! Today, Tessa Buys is with us to share a page that she started with primary colors, all about puppy love! Let’s see what she made.
Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! I’ve had these adorable photos of my little girl doggy-sitting her cousins’ pet just waiting to be scrapped, but the colors in the pictures were throwing me off… until the June Kit arrived at my door, that is! There were just enough red, blue and yellow elements to compliment my photos, and the kit extras made it possible to customize a title and embellish with more bold colors.

Supplies | June Kit, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Outline, Stanley Alphabet Stamp – Solid, Puffy Heart Stickers, June Labels, Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Live Laugh Love Washi Tape Stickers, Everyday Labels Puffy Stickers – Gray

I used a 4″ x 6″ tag from the kit as a base for my title. I directly stamped my title onto the card, then stamped and fussy-cut a few of the letters to overlay with foam adhesive. I cannot express how much I love these new Stanley alpha stamps! I first used the Stanley solid stamps with gray and yellow ink. Then, I used the outline stamps in black. I was sure to line them up a little bit “off” for a whimsical look.

I am a huge fan of the Puffy Heart Stickers, so I was excited to see a new package that coordinates perfectly with the June kit. I added several primary-colored hearts in a cascade down my page. Hearts = love, even puppy love!

The Live, Laugh, Love Collection has great papers for mixing with primary colors, which is why I chose this gray stripe with a green salvage edge for my background. I love that Elle’s Studio products coordinate so well with each other.

If you’ve got some documenting to do that calls for primary or bold colors, this month’s kit is for you! And nab those stamps, too. You’ll use them again and again. Happy scrapping!
