Elle's Studio | February Kit + Extras Reveal | Pocket Page
Rainbows always brighten my day after a rain. They are a God wink of His promise to never flood the earth again. Will never forget my Mom teaching me that. Today marks 14 years since her sudden passing. We gave Emma my Mom's name as her middle name to honor and remember the loss of my Mom that ended up giving us the opportunity to become parents. Mom would have loved her. That was a very dark time in my life, and I'm so thankful that God has blessed us with this sweet thing to brighten up my life. So thankful He created color and inspired us to create so many beautiful things inspired by Him. Elle's Studio had me gasping at this Rainbow Acrylic piece WITH a cloud!
I created a pocket page spread including a layout in one of my new favorite sizes of 6x8. Inspired by that amazing rainbow, I used the new Oh Happy Day stamp set journaling lines, turned them to imitate rain, and stamped them in a blue ink across the top of my layout. Then I used the little icon images from that same stamp set to stamp the umbrellas and the sun.
Then I just added some die cuts from the February Kit, the new Wood Veneer Confetti, Little Acrylic Stars, Die Cut Labels, and Real Life Phrase Stickers. Then added my title in the places where there was no rain. LOL Notice the brand new Light Purple Puffy Alphabet Stickers!
You can see in the above picture, I used that same stamp set to do 'the best' ribbon. This is a must-have stamp set in my opinion. There are so many layering possibilities with the little icons, the double-circle stamp and this ribbon are wonderful.
For my 4x6 pockets on the right, I used the tags from the February kit. I stamped the cameras from the Oh Happy Day stamp set in a few rainbow colors to tie in my full-page layout. Stamped the 'moments like this' on white cardstock using the new Happy Heart stamp set from last month, trimmed, foam adhered, and added the acrylic star.
And for this card, that block of color on the left of this grid background did all the work for me. I just added some stamping with Here + Now Stamp, using the little heart from that set to mark off the day of the week, added the date using the Mini Dated stamp set, and then foam adhered a die cut from the February kit.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Need to peek in the Elle's Studio Facebook group and see how everyone is doing and what you are creating!
