Perfect Paper Crafting and Elle's Studio Blog Hop!!


Hello everyone!  Welcome to Perfect Paper Crafting and Elle's Studio Blog Hop!  I am so excited to share what I've made but before I do, I want to mention what the prizes are.  Elle's Studio is generously giving away the entire Serendipity and Day to Day lines to one winner.  Perfect Paper Crafting will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to their online store to one winner.  All you have to do is leave a comment on each blog on the hop to be eligible for the prizes.  You have until Friday, April 19th at Midnight PST to leave your comments.  Good luck! 

Here is the blog hop list:
Eva Uyeunten (ME!)

I made 3 projects for this hop!  So hopefully you'll stick with me.  Elle's Studio is a new company to me and I already love their products!  I didn't know what I wanted to make since I haven't scrapbooked in a while and I felt all rusty but it was so easy to put these projects together because everything is so well coordinated.

I made this mini scrapbook first and bound it with my Cinch.  I love it!  I used all the 4x6 journaling tags and tabs from the Serendipity line.  I added some 4x6 cardstock as well for extra pages.  I just so happen to have some 4x6 chipboard lying around for the covers and so everything came together easily.  I wrapped the edges of my covers with washi tape before decorating them.  And I even used the cute packaging from the products (in pink above) as a mat.

I'll share a couple of pages.  I also had some Instagram style photos lying around so I trimmed them to look more like Polaroids and then matted them with my Perfect Layers rulers.  I stamped that fun sentiment which is also from Elle's Studio.  I like the quality of their clear stamps!  And everything is so nice and matching! 

Here is another page.  I haven't added any personal journaling yet.  I thought I could throw it into my purse and add my journaling while I'm waiting for the kids at school.

So after I made the first book, I thought I'd make a second one with the products from the You & Me line.  I used one of the tags for the cover and matted that with the Perfect Layers rulers.  This was so fast and simple too since I used the journaling tags and tabs as my pages.  All I have to do is add my photos.

Here is the inside of how I bound the smaller tags/tabs into the books.  I love how these little books came out and I can't wait to make more for every occasion like birthdays and Halloween and Christmas.  I'm so excited!

And because I like to make cards, I made a card.  Elle's Studio had the cutest papers, tags and sentiments.  I just used one of the 4x6 journaling tags as the front of my card.

I added this cute stamp from The Greeting Farm that I matted with my rulers.  The sentiment below the stamped image I cut out from that little perforated strip of the 12x12 paper.

Okay, I don't want to keep you here any longer so you can continue on with the hop.  Next up is Keri Babbitt.

Thank you for stopping by!

Wow! Just adorable! I've used the cinch at my local scrapbook store before and I really like it! I just don't think I'd use it that much. I like how you spaced out the connectors. And how you added the smaller index cards in with the larger pages! Very very cute! :)
