Happy - Technique Tuesday

If you are stamp lover, then this is the perfect stamp set for you.
Love is in the Air Stamp Set with the Sending Love Crafting Dies from Technique Tuesday!
Perfect for Valentines Day!  Yes, that lovely holiday is fast approaching and we all need to get busy!  
I actually just bought red lights to put outside to match my clear lights so it looks less Christmasy.  My husband disagrees.  Oh well, maybe he won't get a V-day card!  lol. 

Who says this Love is in the Air Stamp Set needs to be used on a card though!  
Today, I used it on a 12x12 layout.  

I heat embossed the balloon on several different patterned papers, fussy cut around them, added the punched heart to the center and scattered them around my page!

The LOVE die is from the set called Sending Love Crafting Die.

SEP - Elle's Studio

Morning Elle’s Fans!!!  
I am super excited to be joining Elle's Studio for the 2019 year!  When I received my first box, I was giddy!!  I knew right away, one of my projects this month had to focus of the black and white 'So Loved Shipping Tags' with support of the colorful January Kit and some large Noteworthy papers.  Maybe I’d even use all of the tags!!!  

I didn’t get as far as using up all the tags, but I sure did give it a good try!  In my mind, I was going to create a clothesline of tags with my long photo strip.  So, I started by creating my tag clumps first and laying them on the page until it looked like my vision.  

I wanted to incorporate some of the wood veneer extras too.  I used SEP from the JAN wood Veneer, the Wood Veneer Hearts and the ‘O’s’ from XO Wood Veneer confetti.  I laced them through the twine, between adding tags, and let them dangle.  I wanted some of the wood to stay in place so I used a touch of glue.

To finish off my layout, I added a touch of journaling to a January Label.   Backing it with an Acetate Heart helped anchor the label and finish off the corner. 

Thanks for stopping by to check out my first project as an ES girl!

January Inspiration and NEW Release - Elle's Studio

Just the other day, I shared my first blog project as a designer with Elle's Studio.  
But yesterday, the 10th of the month, there is a whole lotta stuff going on over there!!!  
Each 10th of the month, they do their monthly reveal.  This is where I will share with you, the new kit of the month and add-ons that they make public.  We also share a couple layouts that we create with the new stuff.  I think it is going to be super fun.  

How about a display of the January new release...

Pretty awesome, right?  
They also have some cool Add-on's that coordinate with the main kit.  

Here are my two designs using the newest product.  Below the main photos are close ups.  Thanks for stopping by today!
