Elle's Studio August Kit Reveal!!


Such a fun and fabulous kit - perfect for those school days - and so much more!! And isn't that tent cut file the cutest?? I need to dig up some camping photos to scrap so that I can use it!!
Here are the projects I made using the kit, the Shine Collection and the cut files that are available this month:
I used some the tags from the kit to layer around my picture. I used one of the Shine stamps to stamp a saying inside one of the tags. I handstitched around the sun extending the rays out and I punched lots of 1" circles from my Shine scraps and made fed them through my sewing machine to make a garland which a layered across the bottom of my layout.
For this project I used the negative from one of the cut files available this month(the pink chevrons) and then used several of the tags from this month's kit to layer across my page.
My last project is a card that I made using one of the Washi Tape stamps . I stamped across the card base making rainbow stripes and then I used Glossy Accents on each dot (it did take forever) to give it some texture and shine. I layered one of the tags from this month's kit on top for my sentiment and used some wood veneer hearts from the Love You More Collection to finish.
Elle is also offering a Free Shipping Special!! When you purchase the Shine Bundle, your whole order will ship for free!! But, it's only available today only - on the 10th of August - so order today!!

I used one of the cut files to make my title and the Exclusive Foodie Mini kit, wood veneers and stamp set. I used the stamp set to stamp the letters of my title after i cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo.
I used products from the Shine Collection, the June Kit and the exclusive wood veneer title piece which I stamped then painted over. I heat embossed the popsicle pieces to give them some yummy color. I also used one the cutfiles (the piechart) to make accents on my layout.
I used products from the Shine Collection for this! This line is my all time favorite summer line I've ever worked with!! The colors and designs are so fun and are perfect to document all my summer photos!!

Sketch Challenge at Elle's Studio .....

Today is Sketch Thursday over on the Elle's Studio Blog and I made a layout using the sketch for the blog post
It features my favorite kitty ever - my Gremlin boy. Oh how I love that cat! He's not an outside cat, but sometimes I'll take him onto the front porch and he'll walk up and down the porch rails. He really is a fraidy cat and would never jump off the porch!! He likes to look around and feel the sun on him for about 2 minutes then he's ready to come back in.
I used products from the new Elle's Studio Collection Shine which will be shipping out to lss and internet stores soon! It is a fun, bright and gorgeous collection with tons of wood veneer pieces and some very cool stamps. I used two of the stamps on this layout - the black dots and the blue arrow border which is from the Washi  Stamp Set - my favorite set ever!! And I'm not even really a stamper!
Here's the sketch
I turned it on it's side and them for the squares I first drew
 them, then watercolored them, then stitched each individual square. Then I started the layering. This layout turned out way different than I first pictured - but that ALWAYS happens to me! I love the way it turned out - and it truly is my own version of the sketch!! LOL
You should join in this week - all you need to do is use the sketch, use some Elle's Studio product (it doesn't have to be all ES, just a bit will be fine), upload your layout to the ES Gallery here and link it up in the original blog post here and you could win a $10 gift certificate to be used in the Elle's Studio store!
 I can't wait to see your projects!! :)
