Elle's Studio Kit & a giveaway!

{reported by Shelley Haganman}

I was so happy to get my hands on this August 2013 Limited Edition Kit from Elle's Studio. I have seen her products in stores and admired them on fellow scrapper's layouts and projects and now I had some of my own. Elle's Studio is owned and operated by Elle herself. She opened her business in 2007. Elle's Studio "specializes in journaling and embellishment tags-our goal is to make journaling fun!" All products in Elle's store are also made here in the USA. You can see more about Elle's products on her company website and her blog! Elle's Studio also has a message board and a gallery to visit to connect with others! Every Thursday there is a new sketch for those who like a challenge! Elle has and has had some great designers on her DT that are bound to inspire! Let's take a look at this August Limited Edition kit. 

Ease of use:  Well right off that bat I can tell you that the items from this kit are extremely easy to use. They are all cut and ready to apply to a page or project. There was only one piece that required you to cut them apart if you so choose. If you are doing Project Life many of these pieces are the right size to just slip into your pages. That's wonderful for those who like to have items that are ready to go! 

Usefulness: While all the items in this kit are paper products I will have to say the thickness and weight were perfect! Not too thick and or flimsy. Very easy to manipulate and cut. The colors and graphics are very nice! Everything was only printed on one side. Not a big deal but for those doing PL double sided is kind of nice. Fun wording and phrases as well. A well coordinated kit!

Cost effectiveness:  August Kit includes:
3) 4x6 tags
2) tabbed tags 3x4
6) 3x4 tags
2) 3x4 frames
10) die cuts
1 sheet of label tags (4 tags) = about .47 per item (kit is $11.99)
I will be honest...I think that's a little high. On launch day you can get the kit for $9.99 (.39 each)

What I liked: I love the colors, the graphics, and that the product is ready to use and pre-cut! I love how they are coordinated but not all the same print! I like the variety of shapes and sizes of the elements. I love that you get a great combination of items to add to your project without feeling overwhelmed by the product!

What I didn't like: Maybe the price unless you can get it on launch! 

What I made:

 I used some of the 6x4 tags and cut them to fit into the mini frames. Then I added one of the diecuts (star) to that. I love that the cards can be used for PL but can also be altered for other uses!

Where and how much: 
Elle's Studio Kit
Elle's Studio
MRSP: $11.99 ($9.99 on launch day)
Available at: Elle's Studio website

Overall I think this line of product is just adorable and really offers some cute ways to incorporate your journaling into your project. I loved the colors and graphics. Very fun and happy! Two thumbs up for Elle's Studio August 2013 Limited Edition Kit!

I have a limited supply of Elle's products due to the same issue you mentioned in your review. What I do have...I love. So much, I find it hard to "use" I'm hoarding them for "just the right" time..LOL!!

Thanks for the chance.

Although I haven't bought one of Elle's monthly kits (yet), I've bought plenty of items from them, including stamps and limited edition kits that they've offered. They've got great products, great customer service - just a wonderful example of a small business done good! I'd highly recommend their products to anyone. :)

Looks like a fun set of tags and cards. I don't do any kind of pocket scrapbooking at the moment, but it looks like these bits and pieces would be great for regular layouts.
