A Look At Elle’s Studio (And A Giveaway!)

‘Tis the season for love, and I’m happy to bring you a review of a lovely line of paper products that inspire love and happiness in my crafting.

Last year I discovered a shop called Elle’s Studio. They specialize in unique journaling papers, but also have digital files, stamps, mini papers, tags, and other sweet paper goods available. I have had excellent experience with the quality of their products and customer service, so when Elle asked me if I’d like to review their latest release here on Scrapbook Update, I accepted happily.

I always look forward to what they’ll release next, and this was no disappointment. This new release is focused heavily on love and Valentine’s, but what I really love is that so many of the products will translate to other subjects and multiple craft projects as well. They pulled in a lot of turquoise (2010’s hot color) to go along with the pinks and red, and I really like how playful and fun the line is.

Elle’s Studio releases product about four times a year, and have been in business since 2007 when Elle started the company. When asked about her company’s beginnings she said:

I couldn’t find special journaling papers for my layouts, so I started making my own. After making some for family and friends they started encouraging me to start selling them online. Over this last year we have expanded our lines to be complete lines with mini papers, die cuts, stamps and more!

I started out by making a fun wrapper for a chocolate bar. I wrapped a sheet of cut outs around the bar, then secured with a tulle bow and valentine tag. A quick way to make a little gift extra special.

Another fun item are these coupons, and can see so many uses for these from handwritten gift certificates to card insert to making a bouquet or arrangement full of them to give.

I taped a number of tags and things onto thin wood skewers and arranged them in a little cup. This idea would be wonderful to add into a fresh or silk flower arrangement as well. I can’t wait to fill out all the details and surprise a loved one.

Something I appreciate with the products is that they have some signature pieces like these flash cards that they release in new themes with each release. I also like how well their stamps and digital products coordinate and work with their paper products.

Beyond Valentines, this line will be quite useful in my everyday scrapbooking as well. I paired up some of the die cuts and papers with a border stamp in this layout.

I cut out a paper heart and placed it in the center of the page as a mask and spritzed glimmer mist before removing the heart. I also stamped one of the border stamps around the edge of my heart in addition to glittering the inner edge.

page supplies: Elle’s Studio paper, flashcardjournaling paper, and stamp; Core’dinations cardstock, Basic Grey bling, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Martha Stewart Glitter and Butterfly Punch, Jenni Bowlin felt butterfly, K&Co brad

I hope you’ve enjoyed my look at this new release from Elle’s Studio. Something I really appreciate about this company is that they not only release cute products and have great service, but they are also active online. I follow their blog where you’ll find occasional free downloads and ideas galore. In addition to their main website, you can find Elle’s Studio on facebook, twitter, and etsy.
