Love, Elsie Blog Focus: Day 3

Good morning, everyone! Today's Tip for using Love, Elsie papers? Look for a theme that relates to your photos. My example:
I had this awesome Love, Elsie ladybug paper, which I felt accented my photos pretty well, and carried out my theme. To keep the layout looking current and fresh, I pulled out a bold red chevron paper from Basic Grey's PB&J collection, and used washi in my layering of embellishments on the corners. I used lettering stickers in a very curly font, because I felt it contrasted nicely with the chevron paper, while mimicking the flight of a ladybug. I scattered a few glittery star stickers across the page as well.

The embellishments:

I was kind of proud of myself for using some ancient Stickopotamus stickers in my embellishment clusters, as well...

So try this technique out on some of your older papers, as well! Love, Elsie has many papers that will work like this; travel themed for exploring/traveling pages, music note paper that would work well for concerts and musicals, school/notebook/doodle-y type papers that would go well with back to school,  school project and award photos, and so on. If you try out any of my ideas with your old stash-post pictures and link up in the comments! I would love to see!
