Hello, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Nathalie here to share a pocket page created with the December 2020 kit and add-ons. I will also show you how I have played with this month’s printables!
This page, which will be the last one in my family album, is a look back at this year inspired by the two ‘2020’ tags from the kit. I love how tags with journaling prompts can help you tell your story, so I sat down with them and took a moment to reflect.
I considered the black bold ‘2020’ in those tags, the colors in my photos and decided to create a monochromatic page. I got the idea of switching some of the Good Cheer Printables to black and white. It was very easy using only Microsoft Word. Note: You will not get the same effect if you just print your color tags to black and white.
First, import the tags you have chosen into a Word document. Then, click on each one, go to the “Picture Format” tab on the top bar, open the drop-down menu of the “Color” icon and select the black and white one option. That’s it! And I love the result!
And what goes well with black? Stamping, of course! I combined the two new sets, Happiness & Cheer and My Star on my title tag, even stamping on selected chipboard letters from the Joyful Chipboard Stickers.
I don’t consider myself a hybrid scrapbooker, but playing with the Good Cheer Printables like this was simple and fun so I’ll probably do it again! I hope you will try this technique too!
Happy Holidays! May your 2021 be filled with joy and good health!
