elle's studio: design team gallery - july

the design team gallery at elle's studio is live today and it is just amazing!  i'm still pinching myself that i'm a part of this amazing team.

i had so much fun playing around with all of the elle's studios collections, especially the newest collections...cameron and saltwater.

and guess what??  i also got my hands on the lovely july kit which goes on sale today!!  every month on the 10th, elle's studio launches a new kit for a special price of $9.99 on launch day (at 12:01am on the 11th it goes up to $11.99). don't miss it - it's exclusive to elle's studio and they have a limited stock on hand, once they sell out they will not be restocking!

here is a look at the awesome july kit....

i used the july kit to create a layout, as well as a project life spread.  the kit is just so versatile and fun!  grab yours today!  you don't want to miss it!

here is a look at my projects...

and here are two additional layouts i created using the cameron and saltwater collections...

i knew i wanted to include these two photos of my daughter on a page and the lovely colors from the saltwater collection went perfect with the greens and whites from my photos.  i used several different papers, tags and journaling cards as my base layers.  then i finished my layout with some soft embellishments and my journaling typed with my typewriter.

this layout was totally inspired by the sheet of cutouts from the saltwater collection.  i originally had planned to keep them together as they were, but then decided to cut them out at the last minute.  i love how the design is still there, but the space between each tags adds a little texture and movement.  i included three photos of our beach trip last year in the space of several of the tags.  i just love how this one turned out!!
