Elle's Studio + JBS

Hey! I'm back again to share my project featured on the Elle's Studio blog for the Elle's Studio + Jenni Bowlin Studios Blog Hop.

I've only scrapbooked a few photos from our trip to Savannah last Autumn. So I figured the JBS Modern Mercantile would be perfect for photos from the city. Very rustic & vintage. I put together a grid layout with a few of the cards from the cut apart paper. I used some of the letter stickers for the title... I LOVE LOVE LOVE these letters, they are the perfect size & color. I love grey. :) I paired it with some of the tidbits and cut apart tags from the Cameron collection from Elle's Studio. I absolutely love how it turned out & it is definitely going into my stack of favorite layouts ;)

here are some close ups:

sweet little c

I'm back to share another project from my Elle's Studio May Inspiration Gallery. Back in April, Ryan and I went to Serenbe to hangout with his some of his family... well all of the girls of his family... this is our family tradition for when his aunt comes into town, but usually it's just us girls. This time Ryan tagged along with me & my SIL had her baby with her, he's so adorable. We almost never get to see him when they are in town. Ryan & I always seem to be super busy with school, or I've been out of town visiting my dad. But we were determine to see him this time. He's so sweet & totally loved sitting next to Ryan at lunch. I swear by the end of the day I had hundreds of photos of him. I just couldn't stop, who can blame me? 

When I got the photos printed I decided I wanted to make a layout with as many of the photos as I could, so I made a photo collage & had it printed, then cut it apart to use as individual photos for a grid like layout. 

I've never really been great at making grid layouts. But for some reason, Elle's Studio products make me want to make grid layouts. 

This was the first layout I made with the new Cameron collection & by the time I got the photos printed I was dying to break into the collection & use the stamps. Seriously. such a great alphabet stamp set & I think my favorite stamp is the love your ____________ stamp. I can come up with so many things to write in the blank, so I know I will be getting LOTS of use out of it. 

My mom came over not long after I finished the layout & fixed her old sewing machine that I've had for quite a while... I'm still getting used to it, so my sewing isn't the best, but I'm really enjoying adding new textures to my layouts.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you keep coming back :)

Is it really June already???

I can't believe it. Summer is finally here & we've been looking forward to it for quite some time, but it seems like it has come at such a whirlwind speed. We are in full on family mode. Spending tons of time at home, cooking, crafting, playing, and just enjoying the time together. I don't get a lot of time with S&S during the school year, & even though we are driving each other crazy by the end of the summer, I relish the time we get to be together.

What I'm really here to share is a few projects from this month's Elle's Studio Inspiration Gallery. I can't believe this will be my last gallery share. So sad. I've had such an amazing experience being on this Design Team. Elle is so generous and such a wonderful person. If I could recommend anyone to try out for any design team... Elle's Studio would be one.

First off, I have a couple of weeks of project life to share with you. I'm really loving Project Life. My album from last year is one of my favorites and most cherished albums every.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll have more project life spreads, layouts, & even cards to share later this week & next week.
