Hello, Elle’s friends. It’s me, Sarah, here on the blog, and today I wanted to show you how to stretch pieces from your August kit and add-ons by using mostly digital files. Have you ever tried the monthly digital files? They are such an awesome way to make the most out of your monthly kits. Best part—they’re affordable and can be used over and over again!
Here’s what I came up with:
Supplies | August 2021 Note to Self Printables, August 2021 Print and Cut Labels, The Great Outdoors Printables, Chipboard Circle Stickers, You Got This Stamp, Monthly and Daily Tabs Stamp, Daily Tabs Stamp, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers
I mostly focused on using the Note to Self Printables.
First off, I cut out four of the 3×4 inch printable tags (note to self, graph paper, pie chart, and days of the week). Then, I added them to the center of my layout to help frame all my pieces.
With the other 3 x 4 inch tags left on the printable (the star and the prize ribbon), I fussy cut out those shapes to create my own embellishments. I cut out the prize ribbon and stamped on “getting things done” from the You Got This Stamp.
Then, I cut out the star shape from the last 3 x 4 inch printable. I layered the circle “this was awesome” printable from the August 2021 Print and Cut Labels to the stop of my star.
To further embellish my layout, I cut out a handful of the labels from the August 2021 Print and Cut Labels and layered them toward the top and bottom of my photos. I didn’t pick any specific labels; I just wanted to create a cluster of them to add more color to my project.
I wanted to create a horizontal element to break up the photos on my layout, so I used more printables from the Note to Self Printables. On that digital file, there are some fun, colorful circles. I cut all of them out and scattered them horizontally across my page.
On this horizontal element, I layered the prize ribbon and star embellishments that I created. Also, to create more dimension to my layout, I added some of those awesome Chipboard Circle Stickers that I had leftover from the August release. Lastly, I stamped some scatted stars using the You Got This Stamp to complete my layout.
And that’s all I have for today! What’d you think? We’d love to see your projects featuring digital files.
