*BLOG HOP* Elle's Studio Serendipity (& GIVEAWAY!)

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Elle’s Studio is excited to announce the arrival of their new line,
that is perfect for spring, called Serendipity!
This new collection includes 12 x 12 papers, journaling and embellishment tags,
and a stamp, and we’ve put together a blog hop today to celebrate!

For this hop I’ve created a layout using the 12x12 paper called "Chevron",
appropriately titled!  I cut out a piece of the "Lucky" paper for the top as a
header and added couple tags on top of that.

I wanted to create my own bokeh effect on the background paper, so I made
couple masks with scrap cardstock and a few circle punches...
I misted the circles in colors to match the papers and overlapped them a bit.


I stamped on a couple tidbits and snippets with stamp sets from  the You & Me and
Day to Day collections.  I stamped some more circles and connected them with a black pen to 
mimic the cute "stitching" around the tidbits & tags!


I had to add some gold glitter, because gold glitter makes everything better! :)

Serendipity is a wonderful addition to the new collections...they all work together,
but the color wave in Serendipity is bright, springy & still super versatile...
it can be for either gender or non-specific & includes lots of neutrals too!
I gravitate towards more neutral patterns or plain cardstock for the main background
and the wonderful thing about these papers is that most include a bit of each,
some neutral & subtle patterns, and some bolder bits too!

If you are looking for the Serendipity collection online,
you can purchase the entire collection at: 

and of course, at Elle’s Studio. 

{ You’ll also want to check your local scrapbook store, too! }

Elle’s Studio also has a fun surprise for this launch!
They have stocked a special, LIMITED EDITION PACK
that includes two sheets of exclusive printed vellum and 5 fun tag designs that 
would make a great spring mini book and more!
 Once these are sold out, they will not be restocking!
Also, don’t forget that for the entire month of March, Elle’s Studio is celebrating 
their 6th birthday and all orders ship with a free gift!  ( Woot, woot! )

And if all this loveliness hasn't blown your mind yet, there is more...no, really!   
I get to give away my favorite piece of the Serendipity collection 
(& all the new stuff) and I chose...the journaling tabs!  
Serendipity Tabs

There are two different sizes, perfect for Project Life, 
(even though I don't do it) and they are great to cut down for just the 
tab and save the journaling bit, use as a photo mat, or use as the base
for the entire card (as shown HERE on the blog recently!)

Please leave a comment to be entered to win and check back here on

Saturday, March 30th to see if you’ve won.

** Don’t forget the other stops of our hop today! **

At each stop you’ll get to see a fun project that was created just for this hop 
and a chance to win everyone’s favorite part of the Serendipity collection!
