Spring Break Guest | Elise Blaha Cripe


While on vacation this week we've invited a few of our friends to share their favorite layout of all time  +  why it is so special to them. 

Say hello to Elise Blaha Cripe.


This Project Life® spread from May 2013 is probably my favorite spread ever (in over two years of this project).


I dropped my normal "weekly" documentation approach to use photos taken from one morning. The journaling cards came from the words I wrote for this blog post.


It's my favorite because it breaks the normal format, includes some personal journaling and is pleasing to my eye because of the color coordination. Using a bunch of different products that have the same color scheme is always fun for me.

SUPPLIES |  Seafoam core kit, Elise Joy magic, this & house stamps (no longer available), Paislee Press morning card & love heart card, Whitney Rae Paper Hello stamp, Kelly Purkey PL kit (wooden card), Kelly Purkey "rise & shine" sticker, Chic Tags heart tag embellishment.

Design A pocket pages, Fiskars corner rounder, Zig Millenium pen, Rotatrim paper trimmer, Office Depot date stamp, staz-on ink.

All photos were printed at home on my HP Photosmart 2575 printer on Office Depot semi-gloss photo paper

    What a beautiful layout. I love the colors and I like the "breaking the mold" kind of documentation.
