Elle's Studio 5th Anniversary

Happy 5th Birthday to Elle's Studio!
I remember the first time I saw an Elle's tag in person - it was at a big crop in 2007 - a friend had just received a shipment. We were all swooning over them - we knew we had to have them! I know I'm a little biased but I really do love these tags & journaling cards. This is a great month to try them if you haven't already be converted! 

In light of the exciting month-long celebration, I've got my third page for this month's Elle's Studio Inspiration Gallery ....although I love working with these colors, I have a very difficult time photographing them. Did you ever notice, some colors are harder to photograph than others? The pictures on this page are iPhone photos  - not the best quality and really difficult to work with color-wise. That's why I tried to keep things neutral:
Used the Studio Calico Daydream Believer kit for this page, and added in that Jenni Bowlin #8 (below):
Here's my small title (the 'eight' was cut from a larger tag):
A close up of the date stamp in action (this one from Staples but there is a great new one from American Crafts available right here). I love date stamps - they are an indispensable item for me. Can't wait to pick up that AC one!
That pink metal ring is ancient (circa 2007!!) Scrapworks. I loved Scrapworks - one of those long-lost manufacturers that I really miss:
If you are feeling the need for more inspiration, check out the gallery over at Elle's Studio. You will not be disappointed - and be sure to stop by the blog this month (especially on the Saturdays!) Elle's got lots up her sleeve for us!
