Welcome to National (or International for our overseas friends) Scrapbooking Day at Elle’s Studio! We are so excited to have you here! We love that this hobby not only allows us to express ourselves in a creative way, but also document our memories and get our photos printed, while connecting with like-minded people!
First, To help you document your important memories, and celebrate this fun day, we have a free printable for you, our valued customers! Simply stop by our website, put the free printable in your cart and check out! We can’t wait to see the projects you create with it!
We love digital printable and cut files here at Elle’s Studio, so for this special weekend we’ve made all of the digitals in our shop 50% off! You can add these staples to your digital library to create with over and over again on your scrapbook layouts and pocket pages!
Along with sharing our free printable, and giving you a huge discount on our digital printable and cut files, we’ve created five challenges based on design team projects to inspire your creativity this weekend! Use them to document in a scrapbook layout, pocket page or traveler’s notebook using at least one Elle’s Studio product, and you could win one of the three prizes outlined below!
Challenge #1 | Create a column of embellishment, like Melissa Mann did here using our monthly kit and add-ons on the side of her photo. This fun three-dimensional grouping adds so much texture and interest to her page and can easily be re-created with a variety of embellishments!
Challenge #2 | Fill a die-cut negative space! Use your favorite cut file, then cut it out and fill with paper, tags or embellishments, like Nancy Damiano did here! She used our March 2018 Digital Cut File and puffy stickers.
Challenge # 3 | Add mixed-media to your project! Get inspired by the colors from our products and add paint, mist, paste—whatever medium you’d like to your page to give it texture and added color and interest, like Meghann Andrew did on this page created with the January Digital Cut File.
Challenge #4 | Color block you page elements, like design team member Daniela did on this colorful page using the March 2018 Kit and add-ons. This is a great way to add loads of color to your project without making it too overwhelming!
Challenge #5 | Use repetition on your design. We love how Laura Wonsik created movement and interest on this page by using similar photos, repeating horizontal lines using our Everyday Goodness Stickers and small circles stamped with our Noteworthy Stamp. Use repeating elements on your next project to create unity and movement.
Just for creating a project based on one of the challenges above, using at least one Elle’s Studio product (this could even be our free printable!), you could win one of three gift cards: $50 for the grand prize, $25 for second place and $10 for third place. Winners will be selected randomly from the entry posts, so the more projects you create based on the challenges above, the better your chance of winning!
Each project will count as one entry, even if you have included multiple challenges in that project. Please post a comment on this blog post for each project you create including the challenge number and Instagram post or blog post link to your project image.
