Elle's Studio "Everyday Moments" with Frosted Designs!

Well hello everyone!!!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!!!  Looks like it's going to be warm and sunny here in Florida :-)

I'm here today with a couple of projects I've made using the new Elle's Studio "Everyday Moments" Collection!!!  I knew as soon as I saw this one that I just had to have it!!  The colors are truly amazing and are really perfect for "Everyday" type photos :-)

"You Are My Sunshine"
Let's Get Sketchy is currently hosting a blog hop with lots of sketches and tons of inspiration!!!  First, I completed a layout using a sketch by Brenshevia for her challenge.  
Here's the sketch:

And here is my layout:

Aren't these papers just adorable?!?  And they are absolutely PERFECT for scrapping my girls, but the collection comes with plenty of blues and greens for "boy" pages as well!!!
I started by using the Heidi Swapp "Hexagon" stencil and various distress inks for my background.  Then, I just layered my papers to follow the sketch, outlining each one with a black sharpie marker.  I also added a thick black line around the photos to simulate a black photo mat!

I used the coordinating Kraft Sticker Letters and Pink Paislee Colorwash letters to create the title "You Are My Sunshine"...

I LOVE adding rosettes to my pages... Especially ones with pictures of my babies!  I cut up thin strips of the 12x12 paper and scored it at every quarter inch.  Then, I just adhered the edges together and push down!  I added one of the resin flowers to the center from the American Crafts Flea Market set in the store to finish my page!

"Time With You"
I also completed a card using this collection using another sketch by Brenshevia.  This one was for Melinda's Challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is the card:

I used Kraft Core cardstock by Coordinations as my base (one of my FAV papers for backgrounds!) and started layering on paper!   I kept everything pretty simple as I have a tendency to over-embellish :-)
I used the coordinating wood veneers by Elle's Studio and used the Tim Holtz paint dauber from last month's kit to add some color.  

I also used the white gel pen from last month's kit to create faux stitching around the grey star paper (this was a requirement for this challenge!).  I finished the card with some red-stitched ribbon and a tiny bow!!!

Last, but certainly not least, is a layout I created a few backs back.  I posted it to our Facebook page here, but decided to share it here in case you haven't stopped by!  
For this one, I used the "Stuck?!" Sketch from last month.  Here's a look:

I really like how this one came out!!!  I used various products from the store to add to the detail of this page!

I started by adding some black Dylusions Mist to my background, by pulling out the spritzer and lightly tapping it in the direction I wanted my splatters.  

I added strips of paper from the collection, various pieces that I fussy cut from the papers, and added a small tag I made and some washi tape behind my photo.  I outlined some things (like my photos and background paper) with a black sharpie, and added ink to the edges of the rest of the papers.  

I added some homemade bling to my page using a template, liquid pearls, and acetate.  

I used my Lindy's Stamp gang mists to add some color to the coordinating Elle's Studio wood veneers and added them to the page!

I finished this page with another handmade rosette, again topped with the Flea Market resin flowers by American Crafts.  

Well gang...  Thanks sooooo much for stopping in today!!!  I hope I've inspired you to create something fabulous with this collection!!!  Have a LUCKY day :-)
