Every month is different—even with our habits and schedules, different seasons and events make our lives look different from week to week, so why not record them in a monthly format? That’s what design team member Nathalie Leonelli is doing with 9″ x 12″ pocket pages, and she has her latest one to share with us today, created using the May monthly kit and extras. Let’s take a look!
Hello, this is Nathalie and I am back today to share a new 9″ x 12″ pocket page created with the fabulous May 2020 Kit, several stamp sets and other extras!
Supplies | May 2020 Kit, Eat Sleep Repeat Printables, Currently Icon Journaling Tags, May Labels, Icon Chipboard Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers, Acrylic Stars, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, Currently Icon Stamp, Typewriter Alphabet Stamp, Springtime Tabs Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp — Stripes, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp — Outline, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die
My favorite way to build a cohesive pocket page is, first, to balance journaling tags and photos, and second, to select two main colors with touches of a third one to complement. I was very attracted by all the different blues in the new release and they looked great with the fuchsia tags.
Don’t you love how the black stamping pops against them? I had a lot of fun using my stamps here, my new favorite being the Typewriter Alphabet Stamp. It is just the perfect size for pocket pages! And it goes great with the Large Jane Alphabet Stamp, as you can see on my title tag.
Like many of you, I am typically more of a typed journaling kind of scrapbooker, but I found that all the stamped words were better matched with handwriting. The switch felt even more natural as all the journaling was personal reflections (with prompts from the 30 Days of Lists class).
Before calling it done, and because stamping is great, but can still feel a little flat, I’d recommend thinking about dimension when adding final embellishments to your page. The new Icon Chipboard Stickers are perfect for that, as well as the Puffy Heart Stickers and Acrylic Stars.
I hope to have inspired you to have some fun with your May goodies and your collection of Elle’s Studio stamps! Make sure to come back tomorrow for an awesome tutorial by Jess Forster!
