Introducing the Avery Elle Design Team

June 26, 2012



I am so excited to introduce the Avery Elle Design Team to you.  I have been a long time admirer of their work and it is such an honor having these talented ladies representing our products. Here they are in no particular order.



Yainea is a spanish computer engineer that loves creating all kind of things.  Her blog, http://mypaperjourney.blogspot.com/, is a journey through the paper crafts world.  I adore her clean and simple style and I know that you will too!




I absolutely love Heather's ability to mix patterns, paper piece and sew on cards.  She creates some seriously cute stuff.  Visiting her blog, http://parkermolly.blogspot.com/, to see her latest creations is always a treat. 

"My name is  Heather Campbell.  I have been blessed in my life with a loving husband who I've been married to for just over 6 years now and two children, Parker & Molly.  I'm also a full-time Manufacturing Engineer for one the world's top aerospace manufacturing companies.  I absolutely love my job but needed a creative outlet and something for myself, aside from the cooking, cleaning, bathing children, etc...  Somewhere along the line, I stumbled into stamping.  It's been the perfect compliment to my life and I have absolutely loved the friendships gained."



Melania Deasy

Melania is an amazing paper crafter.  We have been lucky enough to have her as a guest designer before and she has won our challenge multiple times.  Her work is just gorgeous and I know that we are in for a treat having her join our already amazing team!
"Hi, I'm a happy mom that loves art very much. I love photography, design and making cards. "


I have been looking to add someone to the team that enjoys scrapbooking and when I saw Maska's work I knew that she would be a perfect fit for us. You can check out all of her amazing creations on her blog, http://www.lescreademaska.com/.  I just love her use of texture and layers.  You are sure to enjoy her work as much as I do.

"Hello everybody.  My name is Emmanuelle (maska on the web). I'm french woman 30 years old and I live near Paris with my man, Anthony and our two lovely cats; Terreur ( Terror) and Dirty.  I have a little brother named Pablo, that is 19 years younger than me! We have a very special relationship, and that's him who is the most often on my layouts.  I have been scrapbooking for 6 years. I'm kind of a freestyle scrapbooker, I love spot , watercolor, a looot of stamp, and my layouts a little crazy."


I am such a fan of Caryn's work.  Her gorgeous cards are a delight and I love browsing her blog, http://glittermesilly.com/ for inspriration!


"I'm Caryn and besides being a lover of all things inky and stampy I am a mum to 5 gorgeous kids and also run the family property business!  Originally a "wee Scottish lassie", I now live on the Wirral (near Liverpool) where I love to spend as much time with my family and friends as I can.  Don't ask me to describe my card-making style - it changes with the weather!!!!"


Katie Gehring

Katie is an amazingly talented paper crafter.  I have been a huge fan of her work ever since I first came across it.  Her projects are always executed to perfection and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us!!

"Hello!  My name is Katie and I live in Northeast Ohio with my husband, our two lively and creative daughters, four cats and countless antique automobiles.  By day, I work in the Human Resources department of a large bank, and by night, I am a paper engineer, DIY enthusiast and all around crafty gal.  I started scrapbooking in 2001 and decided to try my hand at stamping a few years later.  Little did I know that stamping would take my crafty passion, enthusiasm, and stash of supplies to a whole new level! I love to try new things and try to do something creative each and every day.  I am honored to be a part of the Avery Elle team! "


Karolyn Loncon 

Karolyn is always on trend with the latest and greatest gorgeous projects!  I know that we are all in for a treat!!



"I’m a retired Legal Assistant, married to Garry since 1980, and mom to Amy (newly married to Joe) and Ashley (married to Blake and the mother to my grandsons, Brecken and Brenner.)  I’m blessed to live in Issaquah, Washington in the summer, and Chandler, Arizona in the winter – the best of both worlds!  I love all things paper crafting, but especially stamping and card-making.  I love to laugh, shop, travel, and play BINGO (don’t judge!  LOL)  I would describe my personal crafting style as a mix of clean and simple, graphic, and a bit of fun and cute thrown in for good measure."


Amy was an AEI♥U Challenge member and I just adore her work!  Her projects are so cute and fun! I can't wait to see what she has in store for us!


"Hello!  My name is Amy Kolling.  I live in Topeka, Kansas with my 2 ornery kids and sweet hubby.  Beside my crafty resume, I work full time as a Dialysis RN at one of the largest clinics within the company.  I started scrapbooking nearly 20 years ago with layouts using my wedding photos.  Once I found stamping (via a Stampin' Up friend), I became a die-hard cardmaker . . . there was just something about all the matchy ink and papers that had me hook, line, and sinker!  I would not be where I am today without the amazing stamping community of friends that have encouraged me from the very beginning.  I am a CAS, with a few layers, kind of stamper but like to try all sorts of techniques that may or may not take me out of my comfort zone."

We are so excited to have Ashley Marcu on the team.  Her creations are oh so cute, fun and fabulous!  It is going to be a treat to see what she comes up with each and every week.

"Hello! My name is Ashley Marcu and I live in the Seattle area with my husband and 3 energetic kids. I started this fun, addicting, joy filled hobby 9 years ago and haven't looked back! I have had the privilege of being published in magazines, working on awesome design teams and even started teaching last year at a local stamp store. I'm a Mom on the go and I love fitting in time to craft every day! I love color, layers and all things cute!"

Elena lives in Montreal, Canada, with her husband and 3 kids. She started crafting for something to do when her babes were napping, and now that they are a bit older, they enjoy stamping and coloring along with her.

Introducing Avery Elle Grosgrain Ribbon

We searched high and low to find our 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.  It is of the highest quality and coordinates with our premium heavy card stock line - both made in the USA.  We offer our ribbon as shown in the picture below...  Each is a cut of 5 yards and retails for $2.50.  



Here are a few pictures of some of the collection.



Avery Elle Heavy Card Stock

June 13, 2012

 Avery Elle is proud to introduce our Heavy Card Stock collection. Our colored card stock is 100 lbs, nice and thick and comes in so many beautiful colors.  It is also acid / chlorine free.  Our premium heavy card stock comes from a mill in the United States that is known to be the best in the letterpress and graphic design industry.  We offer coordinating 5/8" grosgrain ribbon for all of our colored card stock.  We currently have 9 colors in our line that you can check out below.


I have had a few customers ask me if I know of any coordinating inks.  I have listed the inks that I think compliment the card stock beautifully.  Please note that while some of these are exact matches, others are slightly lighter or darker.  I am a fan of pigment inks, so all of the inks I have listed are from what I have on hand.  As we get more customer input, I will create a file that I will attach on the side of this blog with the latest "matches".

Aquamarine Card Stock - VersaMagic: Turquoise Gem
Celery Card Stock - VersaMagic: Aloe Vera or Tea Leaves
Kraft Card Stock - VersaMagic: Wheat or Gingerbread
Lemon Grass - VersaMagic: Tea Leaves
Pixie - VersaMagic: Pixie Dust
Raspberry - Colorbox: Razzleberry

Stay tuned tomorrow for more pictures of our Framed Fonts stamp set as well as our grosgrain ribbon!



Blossoms & Blooms

 Blossoms & Blooms is another new 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp set in our store this month.  When I set out to illustrate this set, I wasn't even thinking about florals.  Sometimes you just have to go with what pours out onto the page. 
This cute stamp set gives owners the option to mix and match the stems, blooms and leaves.  Also included is a border stamp that can be used as a bold lace print or decorative embellishment.  Blossom & Blooms retails for $15.  Measurements: Largest Bloom - 2" x 1"; Smallest Bloom - 1" x 3/8"; Border - 1/2" x 5 1/2"; Sentiment - 1" x 1/2"

Avery Elle is Open

June 11, 2012

Hi everyone!  Jamie here.  I am so excited to announce that Avery Elle is open for business.  Avery Elle carries high quality clear photopolymer stamps that I design and illustrate myself. We tested every major manufacturer to find what we consider to be the best clear photopolymer stamps in the industry.  We find our clear stamps require little conditioning, stamp smoother and crisper using various ink types.  We also carry 110lb Ultra Smooth Pure White heavy card stock and 100 lb. colored heavy card stock with coordinating 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. Our acid/chlorine free premium heavy card stock comes from a mill in the United States that is known to be the best in the letterpress and graphic design industry.  Even better, all of our stamps, card stock and ribbon are made right here in the USA!  

We are a small corporation located in Southern California and have plans to expand our card stock and ribbon color collection and add some exciting new product lines in the future so stay tuned!  Customer Service is very important to us at Avery Elle.  We truly value each and every customer and want you to have an outstanding experience purchasing and using our products.

Stay tuned this week for some fun projects and product introductions!  We have 4 clear photopolymer stamps sets and 9 fun card stock colors that coordinate with our 5/8" grosgrain ribbon colors being released this month!  You can see our new release at www.averyelle.com .
