Saying Goodbye to the May Kit with Nathalie Leonelli

Hello Elle’s Studio fans, it’s Nathalie back with you today to show you how I have used some of my May 2021 kit and add-on leftovers to create a new spread in my notebook.

Since my goal was to show you how to “kill your kit” I decided to rely almost exclusively on my leftover tags from the May 2021 Kit for this project. They didn’t really work as-is for my design, so instead I cut them up. Can you guess how many tags I used?

I cut six tags! These are the different ways I used them:

  • Color block accents next to my photos
  • As layers under my photos
  • Photo corners
  • A mat for a photo
  • Photo captions
  • Date strip
  • Title embellishment

To bring in texture and more details, I added a few matching puffy stickers from the Puffy Banners and Border Stickers and the Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Sticker packs along with a couple of die-cuts from the kit.

I love cutting my tags to use them outside of pockets and as you can imagine, the possibilities are endless when you think of them as paper scraps.

I will conclude with one last tip: for the sake of uniformity, select two or three colors for your project and cut only those portions from all your leftover tags!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to have inspired you to try finishing up that May 2021 kit and add-ons before the June box shows up on your doorstep!
