Scrap-A-Latte - May projects

Today I am going to share three layouts that I made for Scrap-A-Latte with the products they sent to me. I received papers and transparent embellishments from the Little Yellow Bicycle Saturdays collection, Studio Calico tissue ribbons, Jillibean Soup picks, an owl wood embellishment from Kaiser Crafts, a tag from Elle's Studio and some kraft envelopes with tags. I couldn't be more happy with their choice because I picked the same collection for my last DT projects for Scrapbook Express. I loved working with this collection and was happy to make few more layouts.

For my first layout I picked 3 pictures of Eli taken at the coffee shop inside Barnes & Noble store. I layered pieces of tissue ribbon under the pictures and also used the tissue packaging. The flower is made from the scallop tissue paper, a button and two stick pins. I added colorful dots with liquid pearls and stickles to the butterfly wings to bring some color and mimic the colorful M&Ms in the pictures.

Supplies: patterned paper, ClearCut shapes, tags (Little Yellow Bicycle), letter stickers (October Afternoon), tissue strips (Studio Calico), stick pins (Jillibean Soup), button (French General by Jolee's Boutique), liquid pearls, stickles (Ranger Ink)

For my second layout I decided to use 2 pictures of Ella and Eli with their bikes. I was glad to find two bikes in the package of the LYB Clear Cut shapes that matched perfectly the pictures. To make the title, I cut out the word Thankful and the journaling lines from the Elle's Studio tag, rounded the corners and layered them on top of each other. I added small Cosmo Cricket letter stickers to complete the title. 

 Supplies: patterned paper, ClearCut shapes (Little Yellow Bicycle), border punch (Martha Stewart), corner punch (Fiskars), tag (Elle's Studio), letter stickers (Cosmo Cricket), label sticker (Scenic Route), brads (unknown)

I added few brads from my stash and Scenic Route label sticker with the date.

My last layout is unusual for me. It tells a story of Ella's quest to get into the double accelerated math program for the next year. I journaled on two tags and slipped them inside the envelope. I used the notes that she wrote to me during the orientation meeting trying to convince me to sign her up.We were told that the kids will have to spend at least 30 minutes a day on math homework, so she wrote - 30 min, Yay.
I decided to use her own words for the title. The smart owl was a perfect embellishment for this page

Supplies: patterned paper, ClearCut shapes, tags (Little Yellow Bicycle), letter stickers (Doodlebug), owl (Kaiser Crafts), stickles (Ranger Ink)

I already received a new box from Scrap-A-Latte. I was super excited to find products that are new for me. Can't wait to get started on my next projects!
