A “Currents” List in Icons with Aimee Mertell

Hey there Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Aimee back again with a travelers notebook layout! I was so inspired by all the icons in the Icon Tab Stamp to make a, “currently” page. So let’s get started! 

Supplies | February 2022 KitLedger Die Cut Tags, Life Captured Stickers, Icon Tab Stamp, Currently Stamp, Pattern Block Stamp, Mini Dated Stamp

As you can see the Icon Tab Stamp has the perfect icons for documenting your “currently” list! I chose watching, listening, eating, enjoying, reading and creating, but there are many more possibilities to choose from. 

I wanted the icons to have some more color— I could have used markers or colored pencils to shade or color the icons, but I opted to use the opposite or flat side of the stamps to leave a colorful, wonky background behind my chosen icons. This was a super fun and new to me technique and I am totally loving it! 

I stamped my icons, typed up my journaling and then focused on my title for this page. I used the Pattern Block Stamp to add a light grid pattern and then stamped my title on top using the Currently Stamp. On the opposite side, I laid down my selfie and layered the Ledger Die Cut Tags below. I love how these tied into the grid pattern behind my title! 

I used the February 2022 Kit die cut stars and labels and the Life Captured Stickers speech bubbles to embellish all around for a super colorful look. I dated my layout using the Mini Dated Stamp and there you have it—my completed “currently” layout! I love looking back on these types of pages to get a glimpse at what I was doing at a particular time in my life. 

I hope this inspires you to create a page about your current favorites or allows you to look at the Icon Tab Stamp in a new way— the possibilities are really endless! Until next time, happy creating!
