Monthly Kit Tags Four Ways with Patricia Roebuck!

Hello, Elle Studio friends! Recently, the May 2020 kit and extras got me inspired to create a project about my love of scrapbooking! In this post, I’ll be sharing four different ways to make the most of your leftover monthly kit tags. I’ll also show you how the Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer piece that I painted didn’t work for a previous project, but seemed to fall right into place for this one. Let’s get started!    

Supplies | May 2020 KitCrafty Stickers, Icon Chipboard StickersPuffy Heart Stickers, Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer, Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack, Currently Icon Stamp, Typewriter Alphabet Stamp

I just loved that Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer, and decided to paint it, but it didn’t work with the project I intended to use it on. I had backed it with a May 2020 Kit tag, giving it a vintage distressed look. It fit my eclectic style as well as my love of scrapbooking. With that piece in mind, I printed a large photo to adhere that piece to first.

The next thing I did was create circles from two May Kit tags using circle dies.  From the first tag, these circles gave me customizable ways to add them as a die cut with the scissor image, and a smaller image with the stamped camera.  For the second tag, I created a larger circle with the I {HEART} image to go on the right.  To finish this left side, I created a cluster on my large photo using the tags cut in circles along with Crafty Stickers, May Kit die cuts, and Icon Chipboard Stickers.

To continue the circle design from the left side, I used the same circle dies to die cut circles from two more photos. I used the coral Flourish 6 x 8.5 Paper Stack pattern as my background, then added the circle cut tag in the center, clustered my circle photos, more Crafty Stickers, May Kit die cuts, and Icon Chipboard Stickers. Using foam adhesive gave me more of the layered look I wanted.  I love how the scissors tuck under the circles!

The next May Kit tag I used had journaling lines and arrows. I added my typed journaling to the tag, trimmed each rectangle out and adhered, then added Puffy Heart Stickers to repeat those colors from the arrows to the left side of the tag.

I wanted to document how long I had been scrapbooking. The Typewriter Alphabet Stamp gave me the look I wanted by stamping the dates at the bottom of the page in black ink.

In all I used four May 2020 Kit tags: two cut as circles, one cut in strips for journaling, and one torn and adhered behind the Hello Sunshine Wood Veneer, giving me so many different looks! Now, pull out your unused May 2020 Kit tags and large embellishments that didn’t get used on another project and see what inspiration hits you for your next project!
