Since my goal was to show you how to “kill your kit” I decided to rely almost exclusively on my leftover tags from the May 2021 Kit for this project. They didn’t really work as-is for my design, so instead I cut them up. Can you guess how many tags I used?
I cut six tags! These are the different ways I used them:

Hello friends! It’s Jen today with a project focusing on something I think we all adore… scrapbooking! Last weekend I had the opportunity to share my love of crafting with a local Girl Scout troop, and we had a lovely time creating a layout together. Originally, it was just going to be the girls who participated, but the mothers joined in as well. It was such a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.
To create the background, I used the plus sign cluster from the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 6 Stamp in several colors. I created several clusters in red, pink, and purple; and followed that with green and blue circles.
It was easy to create each of them simultaneously by cutting the patterned papers down to size and placing them on the mat accordingly before sending them through the Silhouette.
With each of the cut files ready to use, I began placing everything on the layout starting with the scalloped circle, photo, and journaling tag. I love having the option to change the digital files to suit my needs and created the wavy circle by using the offset function. It is fun to see what I can do and challenge myself to learn new things.
Rather than use the digital files to create more circles, I used a one-inch punch to make the smaller shapes and layered them with die cuts from the May Kit.

Hi, Elle’s friends! It’s me, Sarah, on the blog, and I can’t believe we are already in June. Where did half the year go?!
Today, I’m happy to share my latest layout with you. It’s focused on combining the two yellow alphabet stickers from the May release. Have you seen them yet?! I love that they are so bright and cheery.
I tend to use letter stickers as titles for my projects, but I wanted to try something different this time around. I wanted to incorporate both the Jane Tile and Parker Acetate Alphabet Stickers as a part of my journaling for this layout. I thought it would be a fun look, and I’m glad I did because I love the way it turned out!
For my layout title, I didn’t want to use any of the alphabet stickers and confuse it with my journaling. Instead, I used the Happy Place Wood Venee that was released last month. It made for such an easy way to add a title to my layout.
Lastly, have you all seen the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers?! These have easily become one of my favorite ways to embellish my layouts. I love that they’re basic and easy enough to add to any project. They have adhesive backs, so no need to use any type of glue or tape runner with them. They come in a variety of colors, but the last release was fun warm tones that go perfectly with the yellow alphabet stickers.
And that’s a wrap! That’s all I have for today. What’d you think? We’d love to see you using those awesome yellow Jane tiles and Parker acetate stickers on your projects. Join us, and please do share your projects with all of us at our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group or on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio.
And as always, thanks for reading and letting me share my work with all of you. It’s always a blast to create with Elle’s Studio products!
Hello crafty friends! Nicole here and today I’m sharing just how versatile the May 2021 kit and add-ons are for documenting Father’s Day memories! The navy, teal and red really caught my eye for this spread and were the foundation colors that I ran with to document the love and kindness of my husband and the time he spends with our two boys!
For the right side of my spread, I used the blue star and red heart tags from the May 2021 Kit to highlight the photos of my boys with their dad. I added a small label and a puffy element to each of these tags and that was it. I really wanted the design on these two cards to stand out the most.
For a few final details, I embellished the “love & kindness” card with a small amount of stamping, a notes flag, and a scalloped border from the Wood Veneer Borders. For my journaling, I trimmed down the “To-Do” tag and added another tag to bring in more of the darker blue on that side of my spread. I added a bullet list documenting each of the events the pictures were showing with a heart stamp noting they were “checked” off the list. I also added a few final details with another flag, puffy heart and another banner wood veneer, but this time, I stamped a sentiment on it to give it a little something more.
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope you’ve been inspired to document all of your Father’s Day moments using our May 2021 kit and add-ons!
With this being all about Dad, I was inspired to use the scalloped circles from the May 2021 Cut Files that feature ‘the best’ and a star in the center. That inspiration led me to create a circle photo using Photoshop Elements and the cookie cutter tool. I placed the circles and photo on the page, creating a triangle, and then I started stamping using the From Sketch to Finish Vol 6 Stamp and three different colors to create a festive background at the top.
I stamped the stitched lines vertically and then used the small star circle to finish my festive background. To continue with this look and feel, I also added dots from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers.
To break up the vertical design of my festive confetti look at the top, I added horizontal lines using the large lines image from the From Sketch to Finish Vol 6 Stamp in the same three ink colors. Next, I layered the start border cut file over these stamped lines. To create more horizontal lines, I use various sizes of the Good Times Paper Stack striped patterned paper, creating a blocked effect under part of the cut out stars, photo, the ‘Love You’ Knockout Words Metal Die, and a piece by itself on the right. This same pattern paper was used as the scalloped cut out circles to create more color while keeping it simple.
Hello Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Wei Wei here to share two Father’s Day cards created with the May 2021 kit and add-ons. I know that there are some Mother’s Day theme tags in the May kit, but I hope to inspire you to take some time to create a couple of cards for the fathers and grandfathers in your life.
For the first card, I showcased an assortment of die cuts. First, I chose blue patterned paper from the Good Times Paper Stack as my card base. I also used Layered Card Metal Die to cut a piece of cross patterned paper just smaller than the card base.

Now that our newest sketch class, From Sketch to Finish Vol. 6, has been released, we’re sharing how our design team has been inspired by it over the next few weeks! Today, we’re kicking this fun new blog feature off with TWO of our team members, Nicole Kerr and Melissa Mann, who are sharing different takes on sketch 9 from the class! Let’s take a look at what they created!
Hello everyone! It’s Nicole here and today I’m super excited to be sharing a project using sketch 9 from From Sketch to Finish Vol. 6. These sketches are so good and this is definitely one of my favs! I absolutely love working with sketches and I love how versatile they can be to not only give a jumping off point for layouts, but also travelers notebook pages. For this sketch, I transformed it to use on a TN layout as opposed to a scrapbook page as originally intended:
When I look at this sketch, I see three main components. First, the large title that is right aligned. Second, I see two vertical lines of stamping. Lastly, the square photo spots. When I laid out my notebook pages, I made sure that these three elements were prominent.
The title was easy to carryover on the left side of the spread, accenting that right alignment with vertical stamping. The right side of my spread I used for the square photos and a journaling spot. Because a TN is smaller than a traditional layout, I used the numbered spaces provided in the sketch for my journaling, which I added using the From Sketch to Finish Vol. 6 Stamp. Instead of using the stars with numbers to tie the two areas together, I kept the same theme with hearts, but used descriptive words on the banners that described the photos that they were on. This sketch was easy to use in my traveler’s notebook, and I can’t wait to try out the others using this format, too!
This is Melissa here with you today and I’m excited to be on the blog with Nicole to share our take on sketch 9 from From Sketch to Finish Vol. 6. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew that it would be a great one to lift. I loved the grid design and the long title!
I stamped some of the borders from the new Fun with Borders Stamp down the length of my layout. I knew I wanted to layer my title on top of the stamped borders. I created the grid of boxes to the right hand side using patterned paper from the Good Times Paper Stack.
We can’t wait to see what YOU create! Share how any of our new sketches in the class inspire you to create by posting your project in our Elle’s Studio Facebook Group or by posting on Instagram using the hashtag #EllesStudio!
