Small Moments Remembered with Jody Compton

Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Jody today, sharing a project created with the new January 2021 kit and add-ons . I love the colors in the kit this month, especially the pink and teal!

I wanted to document a quick snapshot of my best friend, her sister and mother who has passed. This helps me to remember to document all the pictures no matter how small a moment may be.

I started out my project by adding texture to the background—white cardstock that I sent through my cutting machine, cutting the January 2021 Cut Files heart six times. My picture nicely tucked into the corner of the top cut file. I backed each of the openings with the XOXO Paper Stack, making sure to use a mix of solids and prints.  

I used the lovely grey patterned paper from the XOXO Paper Stack to add a simple layer behind my photo.  I also added the rainbow heart sticker from the True Love Stickers as a layer along with a yellow heart from the January Kit and two scraps of patterned paper.  

I wanted to fill in some of the black space in the photo.  I decided to use one of the phrase stickers from the True Love Stickers on the bottom left.  I also added a few more die cuts from this month’s kit.  

Next, I used the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers for my title. A simple “Miss You” was all it needed. Curving it to match the cut file is a fun way to make your eyes move across the page.

The layout had a little too much white space, so I decided to use one of the 4″ x 6″ tags to add to the corners of the layout to give it more color.  Lastly, I added a small cluster of die cuts.  I added foam to the back of the teal banner and black heart for dimension.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you’ve been inspired to create! Remember when using Elle’s Studio products to use the hashtag #EllesStudio when posting to social media so we are sure to see your amazing work!
