Elle's Studio Reveal | January 2019 Kit and Extras
The January 2019 Elle's Studio kit is filled with lots of wonderful tags/cards to use to document about love, the new year, and everyday live. Elle's Studio always has the right amount of color and neutrals to accommodate any style as well. This is definitely enough to work with, but check out the add-ons available!
To complement the January Kit, there's a huge assortment of pattern paper, more tags/cards, stickers, vellum stars/hearts, wood chips....well, I think you can see it is quite a bit of beautiful new items to add-on!
Since I am documenting for myself again after two years of being exclusive, I gave it a lot of thought. I love the Travelers Notebook format, but I also love a variety of ways to create while still telling the stories of my life and my family's lives. So for this first project, I am using a 6x8 pocket style format going back to 2015. I have this year documented, but I have a different perspective now and want to re-tell the stories from this year.
First, I picked a story I wanted to tell, then based on the colors from those photos and the overall theme, I picked some of the tags/cards from the January 2019 kit.
I filled the pockets with the photos and tags/cards next, then typed my journaling on the On This Day tag/card. There is a January tag in the January Kit. But there is also On This Day Monthly Journaling Tags as well as more On This Day January Journaling Tags available. These are great for documenting. I used the Mini Dated Stamp to add the date.
Then I start to add some of the items from the January Kit and the add-ons to this first tag. The Yes To This is from the January kit and the label is from the new January Blank Label Stickers. Can't get enough of the Acetate Die Cut Hearts & Stars. I layered that under the label and die cut, then added some of the new puffy hearts from the Sweetheart Puffy Stickers.
This is the next tag I add to with the help of the new Happy Heart Stamp set, the Here + Now Stamp set, and the Happiness Found Stickers. Everything helped to tell more of the story, add color, and add texture.
I had to use that Mr. Handsome from the Sweetheart Puffy Stickers with one of the January Kit die cuts on this photo of my husband thinking I wanted a picture of him and not our daughter. LOL
I am looking forward to re-documenting this year, as well as documenting out of chronological order. This memory stands out more being on a full spread all on its own. I love looking back and making sure this special time is documented and focused on. More to come later! Hope you enjoy the January Kit and all of the Add-Ons! Would love to see what you get and how you use them!
