Hi everyone!

Are you loving the fresh summery colours in the Summer Kit as much as I am?  For the layout I'm sharing today I decided to go with a white cardstock background to help the colours really pop. I love that the colours and elements in this kit really do make it so easy to create a fun summer vibe on the page.

Summer by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

I began by adding some bright yellow paint splatters to my white background knowing that I was going to work with a vertical design then added my photo to the centre backed with patterned papers from the kit and some messy thread for extra texture.

Summer by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

Above the photo I stamped 'wander' from the summer stamp set, then added a die cut and chipboard sticker above.

Summer by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

Below the photo I added a line of printed journaling, the 'summer' die cut and stamped 'days like these' from the Summer stamp set.  Under that I used another round chipboard sticker and a little star die cut.

The mix of die cuts, stamps and journaling created the long title down the length of my design.

I've created a process video for this layout too...

I hope I've given you some ideas for mixing your die cuts and stamps for your next title! I'll be back again soon with another project to share.

Hello! Mandy here with you today, and I have another traveler's notebook spread to share, featuring the gorgeous 'Summer' kit! Who else is obsessed with traveler's notebooks right now?! I love creating in mine, and I'm currently using one of my FJ inserts to document photos from our cruise that we took last year.

Here's the page that I created...

Mare Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

We visited the beautiful island of Mare on our cruise, and when we arrived on the island, we were greeted by some of the local people, who were singing and dancing. It was a really lovely welcome, and we had a wonderful day on the island!

I absolutely love the florals in this kit! They are seriously gorgeous! Of course I just had to fussy the ones from the floral patterned paper to use on my page, and I love how bright and vibrant they look!

Mare Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

I added my title to the left hand side of the spread using the 'London' chipboard alphabet stickers (which are available to purchase separately in the Felicity Jane shop). Underneath the title I stamped a row of dots using the stamp set from the 'Summer' kit. I love that this just adds a nice little detail to the page, and separates the title from the journaling. Up in the top left hand corner of the page I added a couple of little banners that I cut out of papers in the kit, and then I layered a die cut flower and a chipboard sticker on top. This little cluster adds a third point of interest on the spread, creating a visual triangle.

I covered the right hand side of the spread with the black and white dot patterned paper, and then added a striped branding strip down the inside edge of the page. I love that all of the patterned papers have something pretty printed on the branding strip, which makes them go even further!

Mare Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

I matted my photo with the coral grid patterned paper, as well as a piece of the aqua solid color paper. I also tucked a small piece of a scalloped branding strip under the bottom edge of the photo. Lastly I added another chipboard sticker to the bottom right hand corner of the photo.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I'll be back next week with another project using the beautiful 'Summer' kit!

It's that time of the year when we travel far (and near) from home to experience all of the best of summer. I was so happy to see a traveler's notebook in this month's kit - perfect for our recent trip to Florida! I decided to focus most of the design in these pages around the stamps included in the Summer Stamp Set. Let's take a look at how stamping + traveler's notebooks are perfect together.

Florida Traveler's Notebook by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

This is the opening page to my notebook. Don't you love that nice, bold black and white stripe on the inside cover? I started this page by using the small starburst in the Summer stamp set to create a fun background. Scattering stamped dots is a great way to add color to your notebook without the bulk of patterned paper. 

Florida Traveler's Notebook by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

I separated the top and bottom halves of the page by using the dotted line  and "what's the plan" stamps. This simple line creates a border between the two photos.

This page contains also cleverly contains the "where" of my trip. If you take a close look at the photo of my drink, you can see the name of the resort. To highlight a main photo like this one, use the corner lines stamp and a sentiment from the Summer Stamp set to frame it out.

Stamped Traveler's Notebook by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane 

Adding a stamped title right in your photo is a great way to not only highlight the subject, but also cuts down on the bulk of sticker alphabets. Remember to use a permanent ink like Versafine when stamping on photo paper.  The same idea was used on the right side with the center, stamped title. The "explore" stamp looks like faux script writing here.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've gotten some tips on how to use stamps in your notebooks. Happy travels!

Oh my goodness did you spy that divine ombre pattern paper in the "Summer" Kit! I think I gasped when I opened my box and it was the first paper I wanted to play with when I started creating! I just love the effect that is created with the pattern paper as it moves from mint to soft pink to yellow,  no other pattern paper was necessary it was the perfect background for my layout.

Aloha Layout by Kim Jeffress | @FelicityJane

The only extra piece I needed was that super fun glasses  cut file that I found in the Silhouette store. I cut it out at 12 inches wide on some white cardstock and laid it over the center of my page. I trimmed a small border from the edges of my pattern paper and laid it over some white cardstock to form a base for my layout also.

Aloha Layout by Kim Jeffress | @FelicityJaneI then added my photo above the glasses cut file tucking part of the photo under the top of the frame. I added a small piece of the Summer Grid  washi  to hold my photo down. Next  I added my title right on top of the cut file with the fun Summer Puffy Stickers following the shape of the rounded glass shape and finished with the Summer Flair!

Aloha Layout by Kim Jeffress | @FelicityJane

I then went through the Summer Die Cut shapes and Chipboard Stickers and found pieces that coordinated with the mint, pink and yellow in my layout. I placed them in and around the photo and cut file adding some with adhesive and some with pop dots for dimension and shadow.

Aloha Layout by Kim Jeffress | @FelicityJaneLast I  grabbed the Summer Clear stamps and chose some Mint, pink and yellow ink from my stash and added stamping also in and around the other embellishments to help tell my story.

Aloha Layout by Kim Jeffress | @FelicityJaneI just love the dimension that is created with the stickers and chipboard shapes. I love how my eye travels up and down the layout following the lines created by the embellishments and stamping. Most of all I love that I have another family memory recorded in my scrapbook! After all that is why we are all here!

Till next time!

Hello! Hope you're all having a great weekend! Anita here and today I'm sharing my weekly planner spread using the Summer kit.

June Weekly Planner Spread by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

There are lots of fun items in this month's kit but I especially love the grid washi tape and used it as the starting point for my spread. I placed it across both pages to section off areas in my planner. The top section was set aside for appointments/events and the bottom section was created for a list of things I needed to complete during the week. I added various die cuts across the spread to designate my appointments and events and used a few die cuts as decorative elements too. I also used the puffy alphabet stickers (included in the kit) to highlight a fun concert we had on the calendar this week.

June Weekly Planner Spread by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

I knew I didn't need a lot of space under "Monday" so it was the perfect place to add the die cut of sweet Summer as one of the main decorative elements for the week. To the right of Summer, I used some small black square stickers (from the black cardstock alphabet sticker set in the shop) as bullets for my To Do items this week.

June Weekly Planner Spread by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

The right side of the spread includes additional die cuts, some used for functional purposes and some used as decor.

June Weekly Planner Spread by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

There are so many ways to incorporate items from Felicity Jane's monthly kits into your planner. I hope this example provides you with some inspiration and helps spark ideas on how you can incorporate your kit supplies into your planners too!

Hi everyone!

Mandy here today to share a traveler's notebook spread that I created using the absolutely beautiful 'Summer' kit! I love everything about this kit... the colours, the florals, the travel themed embellishments... it is definitely one of my all time faves! And how fantastic that it includes a beautiful Felicity Jane traveler's notebook insert!

With all of the travel themed embellishments, I knew that the 'Summer' kit would be perfect for documenting a photo from the cruise that we took last year in my traveler's notebook!

Noumea Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

One of the islands that we stopped at on our cruise was Noumea. Unfortunately it was raining on the day that we visited, but we still enjoyed exploring, and made the mos of our day there!

Noumea Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

On the left hand side of the spread, I adhered the 3x4 journaling card that has the map of the world on it, and I matted it with the dark coral grid patterned paper. I added my title straight onto the journaling card using the beautiful puffy alphabet stickers from the kit. Next I added a couple of the die cut shapes, including the 'today' tab, and the geo marker which is pointing to where Noumea is on the map.

Noumea Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

I also added my journaling to the left hand side of the spread, and finished the page off by stamping the word 'explore' at the top of the page in yellow ink, and 'wander' at the bottom of the page in black ink. How awesome is the 'Summer' stamp set for documenting vacation pics!

Noumea Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

I covered the right hand side of the spread with the aqua stripe patterned paper, and then added a strip of the grey grid washi tape at the top of the page, as well as a chipboard sticker.

Noumea Traveler's Notebook Spread by Mandy Melville | @FelicityJane

I LOVE the die cut shapes in this kit, and I used a few of them to embellish around my photo. First I tucked the black frame behind my photo, and then I layered a couple of the die cuts on the bottom right hand corner of the photo. Lastly I added a chipboard arrow underneath the photo.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today, and I hope that I've inspired you to create a page in your traveler's notebook, if you haven't already! I'll be back next week with another project to share with you using the beautiful 'Summer' kit!

Let's have some fun with design today! There are certain basic layout shapes that I tend to gravitate towards over and over. The diagonal cascade is one of my very favorites. I decided to combine it with some of my favorite bits from the Summer Kit to create this layout about a weekend trip to the shore my and husband and I took.

Adventure by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

I pulled out one of my favorite neutral papers from the Summer Kit - this blue watercolor wash is a perfect background for a busy design. Next, I placed the two photos on opposite corners and began to build out from there.

The first layer includes all the large pieces - the photos, journaling card, frame, map card and hotel die cut. To begin the diagonal cascade, I used the hotel die cut as a grounding spot for the lower left corner. I sprinkled a few circle die cuts, chipboard pieces, stars and a flower die cut down to the lower left edge. A tiny big of stamped text adds some words (repeated in the journaling) and more of a punch of black.

Adventure by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

To continue the cascade, I ran it through the chipboard frame using a large hello die cut and chipboard bits to pull the design into the upper right. A scattering of stars, stamped starburst and a small flag finish off the diagonal cascade of embellishments.

Adventure by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

Last up is the title. A simple, clean font that fits in just in between the diagonal design. It gives the eye a place to rest and underlines the photo. Perfect! Creating on a diagonal is that simple. Just keep building layers in one direction and scatter small and larger pieces across your page. It's amazing how many times I've used this technique, yet every page looks distinctive. 

Adventure by @nancydamiano | @felicityjane

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope the diagonal cascade gives you a starting point the next time you sit down to create with your Felicity Jane kit!

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to be back on the blog today to share my first layout using the gorgeous Summer Kit! The colours in this kit are just so fresh and pretty...and even though it's summer themed it really is so versatile.  This layout is about my daughter's new love for baking!

Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJaneI chose three papers to use for this design.  The red grid reminded me of being in the kitchen and was a fun contrast against the blue stripe, black polka dot and white cardstock.

Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

I created a cluster at the top left corner of the first photo using die cuts and a plain white tag to help draw the eye then continued the design diagonally down the page.

 Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

I wrapped my title around the bottom corner of the second photo using the puffy grid alphas then added the chipboard piece to separate the words and to add another black element to the page.

Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

I added some strip journaling and machine stitching, then some stars and a die cut label with the date for more little pops of colour.

Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

Some phrase and corner stamps from the Summer Stamp Set along with some paint splatters were the finishing touches on my page.

Little Baker by Sheree Forcier |@FelicityJane

Thank you for joining me here today!  I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I put this page together. I can't wait to share my next project with you too!

Hey friends! Anita here today to share a layout I made using this month's Summer kit and subscriber cut file.

Maui Love by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

I love this arrow cut file so much! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use it for a layout. I was also really drawn to the chipboard stickers, especially the circles, and noticed there were nine arrows in the cut file and nine chipboard circles. Immediately an idea was born! I knew I wanted to put one circle in each arrow and wanted to pair it with a photo from Maui. The theme of the chipboard circles were a perfect match for our beach vacation photos and the colors were perfect too!

Maui Love by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

I cut the arrows on my Silhouette Cameo and made sure to resize the file to ensure I had enough room to house the circles. I then chose this gorgeous patterned paper as my background and laid the cut file on the left side so that the arrows would point to my photo. A vertical photo was the best choice for the space remaining on the right so I found and printed one from our last trip to Maui. Once the foundation of my page was set, I began embellishing with additional chipboard pieces and added my title to the top. As a last step, I typed and printed some journaling and added it underneath the photo. Below are close-ups of both the title and journaling.

Maui Love by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

 

Maui Love by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

All of the pieces in this month's kit (along with the subscriber cut file) came together so beautifully and I'm so happy with the final result. Here's another look at the entire layout:

Maui Love by Anita Patel | @FelicityJane

Hope this gives you some ideas on how you can incorporate the subscriber cut file along with pieces of the kit into your projects this month. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
