Elle's Studio | August Gallery

The first gallery is up over at Elle's Studio for the new design team. The gallery is loaded with inspiration, and Jill Sprott is the guest designer this month.

Matt sold his motorcycle. There was definitely some mixed feelings about it, but I think he's okay with it now. It belonged to his father first and was passed down to him on his 18th birthday. It's been a lot of work over the years. I designed the background in Illustrator and then imported it into Silhouette Studio. The design was cut into the white cardstock and then the white cardstock was backed with various strips of patterned paper. I put the Elle's Studio tags in my vintage Remington typewriter for the journaling.

Elle's Studio tags: Lil' Snippet This Week & Summer Lovin' Cutouts
other supplies: cardstock (American Crafts), patterned paper (October Afternoon, Pink Paislee, & Crate Paper), alpha stickers (American Crafts & Prima), mist (Studio Calico), background cut with Silhouette SD (design by me)

This one uses my favorite family vacation photo from last year. We stayed with friends in Boise, Idaho. The Mister works for Youth Dynamics, and we got to go rafting with them down the Payette River (no, Lucas did not go rafting with us—the Misses stayed on the bank and watched him for us). I used a "handmade" circle template and stuck with an analogous color scheme. I love the mix of alpha stickers too.

other supplies: colored pencils, mist (Studio Calico), white card stock (American Crafts), stamp (Studio Calico/Hero Arts), badge (Evalicious), alpha stickers (Sassafras & Basic Grey), circle stencil (cut with Silhouette SD)

I've been loving photo enlargements lately if you haven't noticed. Back to the Silhouette with this one. I used the font Bullpen and made a mask and misted with Mister Huey. That "sunshine, it's hot" tag is one of my favorites.

other supplies: card stock (American Crafts), brown alpha (American Crafts), mist (Studio Calico), "play" font (Bullpen) cut with SilhouetteSD, date stamp, sewing machine, & vintage typewriter

I took one stamp and repeated it across the width of the card for this one. Then I got out my Copic markers and filled in some of the white spaces.
