WINNER INFO! email me with your contact info please :)
So, I'm excited to say that I hav LOTS of good stuff - fun photos - and oodles of projects to blog this week - (yay!) - and am going to try to get the blog back on a somewhat regular track. TRY. ;)
Wanted to start the week off with the Elle's Studio projects that I was so lucky to be asked to contribute this month! Elle's tags and embellies are so cute, that it was a pleasure to create Guest Designer pages for their monthly gallery.
So I wanted to share my projects here now, and I also have a very generous give-a-way to offer to my blog readers (at the bottom of this post, so keep reading!), courtesy of Miss Elle herself!!! ;)
My first project is a FAVORITE photo of Evan from our little "farm day" last fall. I love that my mostly-reserved child actually reached out to pet this little baby chicken that was being carried around the coop!!! The Elle's Studio Calendar tag that I used here is one of my favorite tags that they make! There's also some BRAND NEW Studio Calico product used here - Memoir Alpha Stickers, Chipboard Clouds, & Label Stickers - as well as papers & embellies from the new Bella Blvd Fall Collection (I love their bright paper prints!).
My 2nd page gave me a chance to use all of Elle's new Christmas tags to document our 1st annual official "pajama day" from last Christmas! I'm loving the way that aqua + red took shape on this page - who thinks that would be a fabulous christmas color scheme this year?!?! hmmm. More Studio Calico Memoir patterned paper here & also my FAVORITE NEW shade of Mister Huey's - Heirloom Blue... i think my bottle is already half empty?!
...For my Hello Sunshine card I used one of Elle's large journaling tags as a base for the design - along with lots of the new Mister Huey's Calico SHINE splattered on the cardstock behind. The Shine has a really fabulous silvery look to it when it goes on thicker, and a sheerer shimmery look when you mist it finely. LOVE it!
...AND now to the giveaway part of this post. :) Elle is letting me give-a-way one of their new (AND GORGEOUS) project kits this month...
...no shipping restrictions at all - so everyone enter! Also, if you happen to have already purchased the kit, and you are my winner - Elle will refund your money. I'm going to keep the drawing open until Wednesday morning - just leave me a comment on this post before then!
***Here is the info from Elle on the kit: ***
It’s a BIG day over at Elle’s Studio! Along with the launch of all their Halloween, Christmas and Winter items, they’ve also released their second limited edition, Forever Grateful Project Kit is here! Now you can capture those moments you’re most grateful for in 7Gypsies newest photo tray along with buttons, embellishments and more from popular manufactures, and your limited edition Elle’s Studio tags that were made just for this kit!
Some of the Elle’s Studio tags where even made to fit directly into the tray! And don't forget, the limited edition Elle's Studio tags will never be sold or printed again - once this kit is sold out, they are gone! The kit also comes with optional instructions so you can make it just like their Project Kit Coordinator, Jenni Hufford, did. You’ll be able to sit down with a cup of coffee or tea – all you need to grab is your photos, scissors and glue! They’ve provided the rest! This kit works well with all levels of scrapbookers! Bonus: Save the left over exclusive Elle’s Studio Tags to use on your other layouts, cards and more!
Also, with the holidays right around the corner, this would make the perfect gift for moms and dads or grandparents!
Make sure you check out their blog – in a couple days they will be showing what their design team did with this kit!
