Hi guys! Today I am sharing a layout I created using my Felicity Jane kit from July called Kate. This is a mixed media layout using all the good things: gesso, paint splatters, fibers, and all the pretty things from the kit.
Ah the Kate kit is simply exquisite! I had these cute selfies that I took a few weeks ago in the car (my husband was driving, everyone was safe!) and I decided to create a layout about how I don’t really wear make-up that often, even though I do love it.
I cut and layered the patterned papers underneath my photos. There was a great space to the right of the photos for my title, and of course I had to use the glitter alphabet along with the daily die cut!
My journaling is at the top of the page, underneath the tab I created using some of the sheer ribbon (not included in the kit), plus a word strip and a few hearts.
I love Kate and love the emphasis on her eyes, so of course she has a place on my layout as well! She is on the left hand side along with some stamping and puffy hearts.
The doily, sheer ribbon, and pink fabric strips were the only things I used not included in the kit. The fabric is a strip I tore from a fat quarter and then sewed the pleats into. The ribbon and doily are probably from Michael’s or AC Moore.
Thanks for joining me today! How are you using your Felicity Jane kits? I would love to see!
Hi guys! Today I am joining Lea in the Summer Scrappy Challenge! Lea asked me to send her a challenge and she would complete the challenge as part of this Saturday’s festivities! How fun is that! Be sure to check out her channel and all the awesome challenges at her You Tube channel here: ScrapandPlanwithLea.
Also check out the Crafty Channel Surf Facebook Group, where you can submit your layouts and win some AMAZING prizes!!!!
So my challenge to Lea was to take a scrapbook layout and recreate it as a traveler’s notebook layout, or flip it and take a traveler’s notebook layout and recreate it as a scrapbook layout. Check out my process for both of those layouts here!
I was inspired to take a scrapbook layout, a sketch actually from Paper Issues, and create both! This is the sketch I was inspired by.
So in my video today I am creating a scrapbook layout AND a traveler’s notebook layout for you! I am using Pink Paislee’s Summer Lights collection and it is GORGEOUS! Let’s take a look at the scrapbook layout first.
My photo and story are inspired by our recent trip to the NC mountains over the 4th of July weekend. We hiked to Linville Falls, and right as we were leaving to go back to our car, I turned around and saw this gorgeous view of the summer sun peeking through the foliage over the water. It was an amazing photo, and Pink Paislee’s Summer Lights collection seemed perfect for it.
I began the layout with white Bazzill card stock and quickly added paint splotches and splatters around the page where I knew my elements were going. On top of the paint I added my layers of papers, photos, and embellishments.
For my title I used the word die cut and added the holographic alphabet to say Summer Lights, simply borrowing from the collection name!
What I particularly wanted to accomplish with this challenge was to show us how scrapbook layouts can indeed be recreated into traveler’s notebook layouts, and vice versa. These become quick and easy starting points for really awesome layouts!
My traveler’s notebook layout was inspired by this photo of our lillies that have bloomed so gloriously by our mail box. They always bloom late, not until July, compared to other lillies, but as my journaling says, when they do bloom it is amazing!
I feel like I channeled all things Lea of ScrapandPlanwithLea for both of these layouts – she loves using sketches for her layouts, and she also always creates more than one layout whenever she is working with a specific set of products at any given time! So just like I began my layout with white background + paints, I repeated the same here. I then layered photos, papers, and embellishments on top.
One thing I did different than the sketch here was to add washi tape down the center of my notebook. Sketches are great jumping off points, but it is also totally ok to do something different from your original sketch too!
My title for this layout was much more understated, simply using the Gossamer Blue stamp set to create Hello Summer. So very simple and quick. I used the embellishment cluster at the bottom to add my date, and the layout is complete!
Thanks so much for joining me today on the Summer Scrappy Challenge! Be sure to follow along in the Facebook group and share with us what you create as well! One of the give-aways for this challenge is a place in my upcoming class, beginning July 20, called In My Pocket Memory Keeping. Be sure to check it out!
Hi guys! I was inspired to use some of my Summer kit from Felicity Jane to create this layout about having dinner out on our back porch with my family. My panoramic photo was the jumping off point, and the Summer kit gave some great journaling prompts.
I have been inspired lately by this kit and the Lens story kits from Ali Edwards, and particularly this idea of documenting what we see as a journaling prompt and as a photography prompt. I love using the pano feature on my iPhone to capture the space around me, especially when our whole family is together like this!
The Felicity Jane Summer kit was perfect for bringing this layout to life. Lots of pretty colors and the alphabet made a great title, and I always love the florals! I began the layout by painting these floral elements onto my white card stock. Stencil is by Deco Art.
When I created my title I didn’t want the alphabet to get lost against the white background, so I used this frame and backed it with a tiny bit of the pink solid card stock, and then tucked a few embellishments around it.
Above the photo are a few simple paper strips and embellishments. I repeated the strongest pattern, the black and white stripe, both above the photo and at the bottom of the layout to tie the layout all together.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope you will take a few moments this week to take in what is happening around you and capture it!
Hi guys!!!! I am so very excited to share my first layout created using a Felicity Jane kit, Willow! And I am in love! This is another layout in my series called Things I Need to Hear, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
Have a look at the completed layout!
I began with this gorgeous black and white patterned paper as my base, and layered on several coats of gesso to help the embellishments stand out.
I used the delightful triangle stencil that was included in the kit to add a pop of color and also to give my embellishment clusters a home base. There are three clusters which now form the visual triangle around my photo.
The floral die cuts in the kit were so much fun to layer around Willow! My photo is layered on top of patterned papers, and the floral die cuts are layered in between. I also stamped some random flowers around each cluster. There is so much to look at!
My title came about because of this stamped sentiment – my purpose in creating these layouts is to bolster my own self-esteem by reminding myself of things that I need to hear but often don’t get to hear. I hope we will all be our own kind of beautiful today! We all embody beautiful in our own unique ways, and that is awesome!
Hi guys!!! Today I am so excited to start a brand new series on my channel strictly about traditional layouts. You know how sometimes you get products and there’s like 10 or 15 of similar items, and you don’t know what to do with all of them?! I am going to explore those possibilities, and today I have chosen to work with these adorable transparent frames that came in the May 2017 Freckled Fawn kit.
Here is a look at the full layout! I began with a fun photo that Alan and I snapped a few weeks ago as we were heading out to a date night. The photo itself was sized down to fit within the transparent frame, probably about 3×2.
I laid out the frames and speech bubbles onto my cardstock and traced around them, then I sprinkled the paper with some fun watercolor splashes. I then hand stitched all of the transparent elements onto the layout to create homes for my journaling and photo. Each frame also received a fun chipboard embellishment.
I used the Elle’s Studio Live Laugh Love stamp to create lines for my journaling and to add tiny hearts around the page. I also added my title using Freckled Fawn white foam word art and the yellow puffy alphabet set.
And with that the layout was done! Thanks for checking it out!
