Do you know Ella?

That is, Ella Publishing.

You really must go visit and then sign up for their free newsletter. You get the insider scoop on new products, projects and upcoming e-books. And speaking of e-books, those are books in an electronic format that you download to your computer. You can keep them on your hard drive or print them out, which is what I prefer. There's just something about holding paper in my hands. I love it. Guess that's why I'm not a full-on digital scrapper.

The gals at Ella will even share with you cute and inventive ways to store your e-books if you decide to print them. Just look at the left sidebar while you're on the e-books page! And while you're on the e-books page, be sure to download their FREE Super Sampler. It contains 34 tips, ideas and insights. What a bargain.

And I also wanted to share this...I am one of Liz's Loves over at Ella today. How cool is that? This little album started out as one of those brag books we all used to carry with photos of our newborns. Remember them? I took out the plastic sleeves on each side and used the right side to slip this three section mini journal that I made with my Bind-it-All. On the left side, I slip in coupons.

Here's a pic, but go over to the Ella blog to read the story and see the rest of the projects featured.

Didn't you just adore those other {Liz's Loves} for June? I found them to be so inspiring. I'm especially drawn to the "favorites" sprocket-shaped mini album by Nathalie...I guess because it's for a boy and it's harder to find masculine-inspired ideas and products.
