us {a scrapbook layout using elle's studio}

I was recently lucky enough to win some goodies from an Elle's Studio blog hop. I've been interested in Elle's Studio products for some time but I'm one of those people that need to see something in person before I buy it.

I was super excited when my package of goodies came in the mail. {Just days after I won-those ladies at Elle's are totally on top of things-I was VERY impressed!} I immediately feel in love with everything I received:
Pieces of Life Note Tags
Handmade Layers Date/Place Strips
Owl Love You Forever Scallop Circle Tags

And the other day I had the perfect layout to use two of the three products on. I started this layout as a make and take at Archivers but immediately did the sewing incorrectly {it's supposed to be on opposite corners}. Being the rebel I am, I left it the way I did it and brought it home. :) The imperfection made me remember a photo I had of our little family that wasn't perfect but that was so "us".
 I grabbed it and got to work.

Can I just tell you how much I love these scallop circle tags? So sticking cute. And the colors matched my layout perfectly. Love that my journaling becomes a design element.

And here's the other Elle's product-the Handmade Layers Date/Place tag-looks perfect at the top of the kraft cardstock!

Lots of scallopy goodness in this layout!!
I loved my Elle's goodies so much, I placed my first order this weekend. I have a feeling it won't be my last. :)

Supplies: Cardstock-CTMH, Kraft Cardstock-The Paper Company, Patterned Paper-Echo Park, We R Memory Keepers, Buttons-CTMH, Twine-We R Memory Keepers, Sewing Template-Sew Easy by We R Memory Keepers, Journal Tags-Elle's Studio
