w&w sketch + iNSD + Elle's Studio = Julie's layout

Hello again friends,

I'm back, and I have a project to share with you.  Earlier today, I posted this sketch ....


Ready for the results?  Ok - not so fast!  First, here is a pic of the supplies I gathered before making my project.


I think the supplies take me the longest, so I knew from my sketch I needed some circles cut - some from the cameo, some from punches and one from my Cuttlebug.  I also pulled out my Elle's Studio supplies from the Everyday Moments Collection and looked through my stamps to see what supplies would work best.  This isn't all of them, and some are here that I didn't use. I also have a die cut "Easter" that I created with my Cameo, and I also cut some bunnies from this free template from Rebecca at her Simple As That blog.  I like how this project turned out.

Parentville + The Write Stuff: Love Story + The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom

If you didn't already guess, that is the same sweet little Kamilla that I used in my last project, except this is a current picture of her. I can't believe that is the same little girl - she is growing so fast.

I stayed pretty true to the layout, but I added several more elements at the bottom, and I got to use my stash of beautiful sequins (thanks Shay!).  The panel behind the circle photos is not a pattern paper, but a large background stamp called Polka Dot from Stampin' Up!  I have had this for years, and it is definitely a go to stamp.  I used Versamark ink and then embossed with SU! Whisper White EP. I wanted more of the aqua color on the page, so I used my American Crafts glitter tape to accent the panel.  Love the glitter, and love the not waiting for it to dry.  Yea!  The title has a little accent flourish from Parentville that was also stamped and embossed.


Elle's Studio products were very handy for this project.  The pink journaling ticket was just the right size and the cute little label with the heart - it is cut from the bottom strip of a 12x12 page - PERFECT! The poor bunny had no ears in the photo, but he was too cute not to include. And, he brought a little pink to the page. I needed more pink elements, but couldn't find any pink cardstock that I wanted to use, but then I happened upon a small piece of watercolor paper that was already pink!  LOVE MY SCRAP BIN!  I used the pink watercolor piece for three items - a backer to the BIG SMILES and Heart Tab (below) [Heather I'm crediting you with this idea!] and the little bow from The Write Stuff: Leave it to Mom, which was also stamped and embossed and then fussy cut (but it isn't too fussy, I must say - rather easy peasy).  I tucked in a LOVE THIS circle stamped in Hero Arts mid-tone Tide Pool ink from The Write Stuff: Love Story and punched it with a 3/4 inch punch - also easy peasy!  On the grey "love this moment" patterned paper circle, I added an American Crafts foam sticker K for Kamilla and a stamped and embossed heart, also from The Write Stuff: Love Story.  Then, I sprinkled sequins to my heart's content - I don't know if everyone else frets over the placement of these little "gems" but I do, and I don't think I'm great at it, but they do make me happy!


Here is a close up of the top cluster.  The aqua polka dot paper, the striped PP and wood veneer heart tab are all from Elle's Studio, with the addition of the pink watercolor paper, the oh so cute little rabbit die cut and the continuation of the sequins. The project took me longer than it should but I really enjoyed the process.

I really love using The Write Stuff stamp sets and digital cutting files because there are so many items to choose from and they work for many different kinds of projects - cards, scrapbooking, project life, One Little Word, and so much more.  And, in case you didn't know, all of our "The Write Stuff" product collection  is on sale 20% off  TODAY and TOMORROW (May 3-4, 2014).  If you haven't picked these stamps up yet, this is a great time to do that!
