For this first layout I used several of the new Elle's Studio 8x8 papers, the Owl Love You Forever Sweetheart Tiny Tags, Owl Love You Forever Tiny Tags and the Sweet Stitches Note Tags.
I am in LOVE with the new papers and the whimsical shape of the hearts.
For this layout, I used the Birthday Journaling tags. By stacking three on top of one another I was able to place my title and journaling throughout one line saving me lots of room for a 5x7 photo and some fun layered papers.
And last, but not least, I made this Valentines card:
using two Lovely Vintage Valentine Tiny Tags layered on top of one another. I embossed a piece of Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock and sanded it to reveal the red, punched a heart from the same cardstock and used the color side and added a Studio Calico notion and some ribbon to top it off.
Getting to work with all these Elle's Studio goodies has been such a thrill already and this is only my first month! So I want to share the wealth--Elle sent me a stamp set that I had already purchased a while back so I want one of you to get the new, never before used Sweet Summer Stamp Set:
All you have to do is follow my blog and leave me a comment here and you will be in the running for this super cute and versatile stamp set. (heck I may even throw in some other fun Elle's Studio goodies that I purchased last year!) If you want another entry, go over to the Elle's Studio blog and leave some love there (just be sure to leave me another comment here telling me you did!). I'll leave the giveaway open all week (until Friday January 28th) --the more comments there are, the bigger the prize!
Thanks for stopping by!
