Gossamer Blue and Elle's Studio Blog Hop

Welcome to the Gossamer Blue and Elle's Studio Blog Hop!!!



Insert head hanging in shame here, but I have never had the pleasure of working with a Gossamer Blue kit. That doesn't mean I haven't drooled over them though, so, when the opportunity to team up with them presented itself, I was thrilled! Their kits are packed full of the latest and greatest, contain exclusive products and are fabulously coordinated. They have a great mix of embellishments, from stickers to stamps and everything in between, as well as digital files!

I created two scrapbook pages using a combination of the February Main Kit and February Add-On Kit. I seriously had a blast creating and playing with the contents of these kits and have tons left to keep creating with! These two kits contain a fabulous assortment of products including patterned papers and embellishments from the Elle's Studio Love You More collection and an exclusive stamp. One of my favorite things about this kit was the exclusive wood veneer that comes with it. I added several to each of my layouts, and I still have plenty to play with for other projects.

TIP | USING NEGATIVE PIECES ON YOUR SCRAPBOOK PAGE

I have a fun tip to share about these layouts involving the hearts that I cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I knew I was going to cut hearts to create the background for my Love scrapbook page from 5 different papers. Before I cut the hearts out, I cut a 2" x 12" strip from each of the papers and then cut the hearts out of that strip. I loved the negative piece left after I took the hearts so much, that I decided to use those strips on my One And Only layout. This is such a great way to use your scraps! So, before you cut your next images with your electronic cutting machine, think about how you are positioning them on the paper. The negative piece may be just the thing to add a pop of fun to your next project!

Now here's a look at the two scrapbook pages I created using the Gossamer Blue kits and so you can see what I'm talking about with the negative pieces.
