Elle's Studio is rockin The Paperlife and the Holidays this Year!!!








OK you Paperlifers, have I got a treat for you this week! Its Elle from Elle's Studio. One of my fave manufacturers. What you see above is examples from her creative Paperlife. I love them all but that summer album is just stunning! Her stuff is just so clean and classy, pretty much timeless and, to cute to boot! I am a big fan. You have probably seen her stuff used by the fabulous Ali Edwards and I know I am getting these from Elle for my Ali inspired December Daily this year:

You can check Ali's project out here: http://aliedwards.typepad.com/_a_/december-daily-album-2008.html How perfect these daily tags be? And when I saw what she has done for this Halloween and Christmas, I called her right up and begged her to be in the spotlight so I could share her with you all. She graciously agreed and went above and beyond to do it ........wait till you see her giveaway!(hang on that will be after you get to know this cool lady) So, I will step back and share Elle's Paperlife and let you get to know this cool lady behind the fabulous scrapbook company Elle's Studio!

Elle introduce us and tell us how Elle's Studio came into existence?

Hello! I’m Elle from Elle’s Studio, LLC. I started Elle’s Studio in early 2007 when I couldn’t find the things I was looking for at our local scrapbook store. I had been a Graphic Designer for quite awhile so I turned to my computer to create the things I needed. My friends started asking where I got them and after making tags for them and family they encouraged me to start selling them!

We are really excited about the future of Elle’s Studio and are really focusing on inspiration! We’ve added a new section to our site called “Projects” and have some fun things in store that will be coming soon! We are also planning on putting together a design team for 2010. We’ll be making an announcement about this in October!

Our home on the web is located here http://www.shopellesstudio.com/ and we love to have you visit and get inspiration from us anytime as well as shop our awesome products!

Ok Elle, so where you get your inspiration for these fabulous treasures you make?

Inspiration seems to be everywhere now days! I love reading all the scrapbooking blogs out there and seeing everyone’s scrapbooking creations! Flickr is a constant source of eye candy. Vintage books and current magazines are a huge favorite, too! I also love reading style blogs like Creature Comforts, Decor8, and Modish. I try to get through my blog list at least once a week to see what is new out there, but my list is getting longer and longer so it’s getting harder to keep up! Here is a list of my regular inspirational haunts:

Flickr http://www.flickr.com/
Creature Comforts http://www.creaturecomforts.typepad.com/
Decor8 http://decor8blog.com/
Modish http://www.modish.typepad.com/

Ok so we at The Paperlife want to know a little about how you design or come up with your designs for Elle.

I usually start with thinking of a subject or theme and brainstorm on it for a couple of days. Then, I sketch it out on paper and transfer it to a digital design on the computer. The design usually goes through a ton of revisions before it is finalized.

Elle inquiring minds want to know what are your top 3 favorite products from Elle's Studio and why?

Since Christmas is my favorite time of the year, I’ll have to go with items from our new holiday line… but it’s hard to narrow it down to just three :) I think our Gingerbread Dress-Up Doll is going to get a ton of use for making gift tags and cards from me this year. I also can’t wait to create a December mini with our number cut outs! And, I’m really in love with vintage things right now, so the Vintage Snowflake Circles are a big favorite, too! Here are pictures of my favorites and links to where you can get them:

Gingerbread dress up doll http://www.shopellesstudio.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=314
Number cut outs http://www.shopellesstudio.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=308

Vintage snowflakes http://www.shopellesstudio.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=307


So Elle do you still scrap? and if so tell us a little about that like who do you scrap? where do you scrap? why do you scrap?

I do! I don’t have any kids, but I do have a dog, which I consider my baby :) A lot of my scrapbooking ends up being about her or my family (mom, dad, sister and her husband). I tend to scrapbook moments that have memories that I never want to forget. I love looking back at the pages and being able to fall right back into that moment. We recently did a mini book workshop for summer at our blog and I’m loving all the memories it holds! I can’t wait to start on one for the holiday season! I’m a really, REALLY messy scrapbooker! I love spreading everything out and diving in, so my scrapbooking tends to be in large chunks of time. I’ll usually scrapbook for 2 to 4 days straight and then put everything away. I try to bring it all back out again every two to three weeks and get a couple pages done each time. Every time I pull it back out I find something new and end up getting inspired all over again!

Right now I’m working on my Christmas cards! Last year I received some homemade ones and they meant so much to me. So, this year I have challenged myself to make all my own cards! Getting an early start on this project was really important since the holiday season gets so busy!
(The sampling of Elle's work is at the top of the post. It should be here but, blogger decided to be difficult and won't let me move them! Sorry about that.)
See more of Elle's work on her blog located here:

and link directly to that fun summer album I am totally in love with here:

Thanks for sharing, I just love that you enjoy this hobby as much as the customers you design the products for!

Now on to Elle's fantastic giveaway for you:

We have two giveaways for the Paperlife readers! A Christmas set and a Halloween set!! So we will have not one but two winners this week. How does that sound?? Here are pictures of both of the collections and you can always go to the Elle's Studio site to get better individual looks at the pieces.



Elle, these are just a must have for Halloween and Christmas "graphically, cute, and classic" I say and so versatile, all of the pieces can be used to accent many lines of paper on the market because the are so classic! Thank you so much for sharing your Paperlife with all of us. It is so fun to meet the people behind our favorite products and see that you truly live a Paperlife too! I hope you are rested up because, I have a feeling you are gonna be busy filling orders with all of this yummy stuff this holiday season! keep up the good work my friend you knocked it out of the park for us this release!!


OK so you want one of these I know, I know!! Well leave your comment here about your favorite item from the Elle's Studio release, and go ahead and ask Elle a question you might have about her Paperlife. Maybe we can get her to answer some this weekend. And like every other week here at The Paperlife, we will be drawing for the two giveaways (how cool is that!) at Midnight CST Sunday night so get it in before then. And spread the word, there are 2 giveaways going maybe you and a friend you send here will both win!


Thanks everybody, hope your Labor Day was fun and relaxing. It was here and I got all of my spring bulbs planted so, I am hoping for a beautiful Spring next year (if I planted them deep enough). Until we talk again this weekend, do what I am doing this week for sure, and go make a beautiful mess of your Paperlife!!

Hugs,


Amy
