We Go Together Like… with Junell Kruzel

Happy 2022! How’s the new year going so far for you? It’s Junell on the blog today and so far this year is going well for me! The January 2022 kit and add-ons are divine as usual! I just can’t get over how happy the colors in this kit make me! So cheerful and energetic—making me just want to jump into scrapbooking the new year! Let’s get started!

Supplies | January 2022 Kit, Love Notes Die Cuts, Gray Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers, Love You Paper Stack, Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp, Large Heart Jane Number Stamp, Love You Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die

I started this layout the way I start most of my layouts, by looking through the Love You Paper Stack and finding the colors and patterns that I’m drawn to. I love the paper with all the colorful rectangles and then chose a few more papers that coordinated. 

Once I had my papers down in a pleasing way and selected my photos, I took a look through the tags from the January 2022 Kit and thought it would be fun to use the “we go together like…” tag. I put it on the opposite side of my photo along with the teal heart tag to create a balance in colors. There’s teal on the left and on the right now. 

I used the Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp and the plus sign from the Large Heart Jane Number Stamp to create the title and used the Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die to cut them out. I wanted the title to go across the photo and added the plus sign on top of the actual photo to make your eye go all the way across. 

I typed out my journaling (which I somehow managed to make relate to mac & cheese!), cut it into strips, and adhered it.

The really fun part for me was going through all the bits and pieces that came with the kit and all the extras to embellish and make the layout come to life! I did some fussy cutting of tags and ruffled the edges of some die cuts. I don’t like things looking too flat and one-dimensional. I also added a few stamped phrases using the Love You Stamp. This layout was simple, but quite fun to make!

Thank you for reading! I encourage you to share in the Elle’s Studio Facebook group what you made with this month’s kit! It’s so fun to see everyone’s creations and how the products are used in different ways!
