It’s quite often that we design products that work together, but maybe none so perfectly as our new Currently Icon Journaling Tags and Currently Icon Stamp! Let’s take a look at how design team member Marsha Farris used this perfect pair to create a fantastic traveler’s notebook spread to record current favorites!
Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha, and I’m excited to be sharing a project today using the bright and colorful May 2020 Kit and add-ons. For my traveler’s notebook layout, I decided to document my youngest son’s current favorites. He is growing and changing so much these days, and I wanted to capture some of the things he’s loving right now.

Using the Currently Icon Stamp and the Currently Icon Journaling Tags, I followed a simple formula. First, I stamped the word “favorite,” along with an icon from the stamp set, onto each tag. Next, I added photos to represent each favorite—some were my own photos and others were images I printed from online sources. I stamped the date using the Mini Dated Stamp and added handwritten journaling onto the other blank area on the tags. I kept the embellishing really simple using circle stickers from the Icon Chipboard Stickers and stars from the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers. Finally, I used a punch and ribbon from my stash to complete the tags.
I trimmed patterned paper from the Flourish Paper Stack to fit as a full page in my album. Using vellum, I created a simple pocket and attached it to the page with machine stitching. This pocket was perfect for holding my journaling tags!
For the left side of the spread, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to fit in the album and layered another patterned paper from the Flourish Paper Stack onto it. I added my photo and embellished using a circle die cut label from the May 2020 Kit, an Icon Chipboard Sticker, and a Puffy Heart Sticker. I also did a bit more stamping using the Currently Icon Stamp onto a label from the May Label Stickers.
The Currently Icon Journaling Tags and Currently Icon Stamp were perfect for documenting this story of current favorites. Be sure to check out these goodies, along with the other new Elle’s Studio May kit and add-ons! We can’t wait to see what you create!
