More and Less with Nathalie Leonelli

Hello friends! This is Nathalie and I am very excited to be back on the design team for another year! I have never really been big on New Year’s resolutions but I was recently inspired by an illustrator on Instagram to write a “More, Keep On and Less” list which I documented in a traveler’s notebook. I used the January 2022 kit and add-ons to create my photo-less spread.

Supplies | January 2022 KitLove Notes Die Cuts, Gray Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Light Pink Cardstock Label Stickers, Light Teal Cardstock Label Stickers, Love You Paper Stack, Warm Solids Paper Stack, Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp, Currently Stamp, Love You Stamp, Monthly Numbers Stamp, Currently Metal Die, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die

Before working on my list, I made the title with the new Large Heart Jane Alphabet, stamped on a grey paper from the Warm Solids Paper Stack. I also introduced brightly-colored borders using a sheet from the Love You Paper Stack.

From the start, I knew I was going to type my list on the Light Pink Cardstock Label Stickers and since I wanted to visually differentiate the ‘More’ from the ‘Less’, I found the same stickers in Light Teal for the opposite page. 

I loved the positive inclusion of the “Keep on” list in my inspiration piece and typed mine on the “this year I plan to” tag from the January Kit.

To finish, I added a bit more stamping, in black for contrast, including the Currently Stamp (which is free to all of our monthly kit subscribers!) on top of a circle from the Love Notes Die Cuts. It fills a blank space at the bottom and helps balance the two pages.

I didn’t know I would love this as much as I do! It is easier to remind myself of all these good intentions with a positive spread like this. I hope you will give it a try!

Best wishes to all of you for 2022!
