New Issue: Pop-ping the Cork with Elle's Studio

Happy New Year and welcome to Pop-ping the Cork, our very first linky party of the new year, sponsored by Elle's Studio! The design team had a chance to work with the new Hello 2015 collection from Elle's Studio (a perfect way to ring in the new year, don't you think?) so let's take a look at the amazing projects they created to share with you...

Note: Clicking on each design team members' name will take you to their blog where you can see their project in more detail.

So what is Pop-ping the Cork all about? Here are some ideas for the types of projects you could link up.
  • Tell us about your New Year's Eve/Day celebrations, traditions, resolutions, intentions and toasts.
  • Do you participate in One Little Word? What's your word for 2015?
  • Do the children in your life love blowing bubbles (because they sure are fun to pop)?
  • Make colors pop off the page.
  • Use cork embellishments.
  • Do you drink soda (or do you call it pop)? Tell us about your favorite carbonated beverage (because they have pop tops) and/or use a soda cap as an embellishment or even a soda can.
  • When you go to the movies, what's your snack of choice, is it movie popcorn? Do you love it drenched in butter or plain with just a bit of salt?
  • Let's see some baseball pages (as in hit a pop fly)!
  • Have you documented an engagement proposal (as in popping the question)?
  • Are there members of your family you call Pop or Pop Pop?
  • Do you like pop music? What's your favorite song or group?
  • Maybe you've traveled to Ireland and visited County Cork. Actually, any travel pages will do. :)
  • Have you used wine corks to create an "off the page" project?
  • Have you decorated a corkboard? What's on your Pinterest boards?
  • Do you like camping (as in pop up tent)? Have your kids gone to day camp or sleep away camp?
  • Use Elle's Studio products.
