July already??? This is just plain crazy. The year is seriously flying by. We are having a scorcher of a summer so far here in Zurich and I really hope it lasts – often we get a very warm spell early on and then rain for most of July just in time for my little one’s daycare to close!! Fingers crossed our heat wave lasts, though minus a few degrees for me & my pregnant belly
Today is all about summer for the Elle’s Studio July reveal. This kit is amazing – full of great journaling cards, bright colors and perfect accents. I really enjoyed working with it. I am working on a little 8×8 album to try to get through some of my photos from last year and the kit worked perfectly to help with this summery page. I want to keep this scrapbook super simple – something I can actually finish – so the page was easy & quick.
I used papers from the Let’s Eat collection and created a simple edge with the reverse of the striped paper. I stitched along the paper edge to create some interest. The amazing vellum stars are included in the kit (I adore these!!) and the white acrylic star is part of an add-on that can’t be missed! The colors from the kit coordinate perfectly with the paper from the Let’s Eat collection, so this page came together in a snap!
Next up, a card (shocker, I know!)
The paper is another sheet from the Let’s Eat collection and the border is actually part of that extra bit on 12×12 paper, but I thought it made the perfect border for a card. The vellum star, banner and tag are all from the July kit and the stars are the Acyclic Stars add-on.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, the first 150 kits purchased will receive the “love this” acrylic piece as a free gift and special thank you – this acrylic piece will not be available for purchase separately & let me tell you, it is AMAZING! Elle will keep the product listing updated to reflect when the free gift is no longer available.
So that is all for the July reveal. It is such an amazing kit – hurry up and head over to the Elle’s Studio website so you don’t miss your chance to get the kit & the free gift! And make sure to check out the rest of the design team inspiration!
