Today we welcome Lorilei Murphy back to the blog to share her final guest post with us, and she’s sharing a secret: her favorite new product released this month! Can you guess what it is? Take a look at the beautiful new traveler’s notebook spread that she is sharing below, and we think you’ll figure it out!
Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Lorilei here today with my final guest post for April. I adore guesting with Elle’s Studio and love every project I come up with! Thank you for having me this month!
I got out my traveller’s notebook this week and printed a large photo for the right side of my spread. I am not kidding when I say that I LOVE the Typewriter Alphabet Stamp! It is a fantastic size, it includes numbers, upper and lower case and punctuation. I can see myself reaching for this stamp over and over!
Since I wanted to feature the stamp, I got the idea to stamp a word scramble/word find on the page using the Typewriter Alphabet Stamp. I figured out that I could start with “happy spring” and then just fill in letters to complete the page. I stamped “happy spring’ using multiple colours of ink so it would stand out on the page. I used black ink for the rest of the letters; the page worked out pretty good without planning!
Next, I picked out the gorgeous, fun flowers from the Beautiful Day Die Cuts to embellish the spread. I decided to add clusters in three areas around the spread for a nice balance. I added a big daisy, small single flowers and leaves to each cluster. I did hand-cut a few extra leaves from the green paper found in the Flourish Paper Stack.
I added two phrases from the Springtime Tabs Stamp onto a blue label from the April Print and Cut Labels for just a bit of journaling. A sprinkle of tiny hearts from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers finished off my clusters and page! I love how this spread turned out! Thank you for checking out my project today! I hope you might be inspired to have fun with this incredible stamp set and gorgeous April kit and add-ons!
