Hello crafty friends! It’s Wei Wei here. I am thrilled to be sharing my newest layouts in my memory planner. I love that I can record the big and little stories of my family’s life. This week I am recording the start of October here in Taiwan, little plants, coffee, and family fun. I’m going to show how to come up with my planner with Elle’s Studio November kit and extras, so check out how easy it is below!

I began the layout by stamping the month with the Large Star Jane Alphabet Stamp on the Grid Journaling Tags. I just LOVE this stamp! It is such fun and works well with so many different types of projects. Then, I stamped the dates using the Mini Dated Extras Stamp and gray Date Label Cardstock Sticker. The rad banner from The Merriest Chipboard Stickers with a stamped phrase made my title more interesting.
The photos were layered with the journaling tags from the November 2021 Kit. I arranged them on the page, according to the date they were taken. The little circle Monthly Numbers Stamp are so adorable and perfect for marking the date.
Adding a flip-up is a good way to save space for documentation, keeping the layout clean and clear. I created the flip-up with tags from the November 2021 Kit.
On the right side, I adhered my photos in a grid design.
For embellishment, I added the Holiday Fun Stickers, Red Cardstock Label Stickers, Puffy Heart and Star Stickers, and The Merriest Vellum Die Cut to my layout. These adorable stickers and die cuts were perfect for highlighting the layouts.
I also added the A Merry Moment Stamp and red Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers on the blank space for additional journaling.
I always love using tags on my projects. I find they’re a great way to get a design started and the perfect place to house embellishment, journaling and/or photo.
For my layout, I made a tag insert using the Holiday Tags Metal Die, Monthly Highlights Paper Stack and pink Grid Journaling Tag as a space for the subtitle and a cluster of embellishments. It also helped balance all that photos and embellishments because the tones and colors of both sides of my planner were different.
I stamped with the Title Builder Vol. 5 The Merriest Stamp and added a few embellishments by adding the black Full of Joy Chipboard Sticker, Magical Acetate Circle and the little Gold Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers.
I also created a little tag with Nesting Tags Metal Die and stamped with the Noted Vol. 3 Stamp.
For the back side, I added a title trimmed from the Monthly Highlights Paper Stack and stamped with A Merry Moment Stamp, Home Sewn Stitches Stamp as well as the Weekend Stamp.
I hope I have given you some ideas for using the 2021 November kit and extras in your memory planner!
