I have had this photo of my husband and I on our 10th wedding anniversary for a few years now and I when I was searching for photos to coordinate with the Caroline kit this photo really spoke to me.
I wanted a soft romantic feel to my layout, but not too girly since it was about my husband too, so I decided to use the pretty floral pattern paper from the Caroline kit as a base for my layout and then trimmed about an inch from two sides of the plain pink pattern paper from the kit to add over the top.
Since it was a celebration I added that large bow using strips from the multicolored pattern paper from the Caroline kit and then scattered some of the silicone charms, die cuts and other embellies around my photo.
To create my bow I trimmed two pieces of the striped pattern paper approx 11/2 inch wide. I trimmed one piece to fit the width of the pink paper and cut notches in each end. The second piece I cut two pieces approx 3 inches long and formed a loop and stapled the loop closed. I then adhered the loops under my photo to create the illusion of a large bow. I love the effect this creates!
Using a large circle punch I punched one of the 3x4 journalling cards into a circle and then ran it through my typewriter. I trimmed a little from the bottom and adhered it to the bottom of my page.
To complete my layout I sewed a small garland string using my machine under my photo and "hung" elements ( including the silicone charms, die cuts and bow) to the string. I love the softness this brings to my layout.
Thanks for joining me today. Don't be afraid to change up some of the elements in your kit to suit the theme of your layout. It really will make all the difference in providing cohesiveness and a sense of coordination!
Enjoy your day!
Are you enjoying the gorgeous Caroline Kit as much as I am? Today I have a layout to share with you using a variety of the pretty papers from the kit.
I used my Silhouette and the 'Impact' font on my computer to create the letters for my title and cut it out onto white cardstock.
I then cut a selection of my favourite papers and positioned them behind each cut out letter to create my colourful title.
I cut a large piece of the blue patterned paper, adhered it to the top half of the cardstock then stitched a border around the edge and zig zag stitch across the middle with my sewing machine.
My photo was added next along with this sweet sticker and flair. I stamped the date onto a small tag to tuck under the flair with some messy thread for added texture.
At the bottom of my page I added a label with a silicone charm and hearts, a cardstock banner, then I stamped 'happy times' to finish the page.
Thanks for joining me on the blog today! I hope I've given you a little inspiration and a few ideas for your next project. I've also created a process video for this layout if you'd like a peek...
Welcome back to the Felicity Jane blog. Today I want to share a new layout I created with the Caroline kit. I love that I can mix it up a little and use some of the elements for a more masculine feel.
I based my layout on the black and white stripe pattern paper from the Caroline kit and then used a piece of white cardstock from my stash to form a base for the rest of my layout. Next I grabbed some of the pattern papers from the Caroline kit that coordinated with my photo and used a two and half inch circle punch to cut out 9 circles. I then adhered them circles in a grid design to form a photo mat.
Next I layered on my photo and embellishments in and around the photo. I grounded the circles by adding the puffy stickers, flair, Silicone Charms and title over the top and also over the edges of some of the circles. This ensures things are not just floating on the page.
Finally I used my typewriter to add my journalling card. I loved the "dots" and the "documented" 4x6 cards from the Caroline kit so I trimmed the documented card to fit on top of the dots card and adhered them together.
Thanks for joining me today, Ill be back in a few days to share another fun layout using the Caroline kit.
Hi everyone! Mandy back with you today to share another traveler’s notebook spread that I created using the stunning Caroline kit! I’m totally loving the different colour combinations within the kit, and this time I decided to focus on the bright and bold colours!
I documented a photo of my youngest daughter having fun jumping on our trampoline! We had quite a few weeks of rain last month, so when the sun finally came out we were both happy to be able to get outside and enjoy some fresh air!
I covered the left hand side of the spread with the fun multi-colored geometric patterned paper. I then matted one of the 3x4 journaling cards on the navy grid paper, and layered another one of the journaling cards behind. I wrote my journaling onto the card and then added one of the cute silicone charms that says ‘my happy place’ to the top. This was the perfect phrase for this page, because being outside really does make her happy! I also added one of the pretty flowers from the die cut shapes pack to the bottom right hand corner of the journaling card.
I adhered a vertical strip of the navy grid pattern paper to the right hand side of the spread, which provides a nice contrast to the bright colours on the opposite page. I added some layers of pattern paper behind my photo and then popped this on the right hand page overlapping the navy pattern paper. I also tucked a die cut tag behind the photo as well. At the bottom of the page I added one of the stickers from the cut apart sheet, and this helps to bring some of the colours and pattern from the left hand side of the spread, across to the right.
Lastly I added three of the cute little puffy hexagon stickers to the top right hand corner of the page.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
Welcome back to the Felicity Jane blog.
Today I want to share my newest layout using the pretty Caroline kit.
I adored the soft florals and pretty Silicone Charms and Die Cuts that made it easy to create a feminine layout about my bestie.
I trimmed two of the pattern papers from the Paper Add-On kit in half and adhered them to a piece of cardstock from my stash. This is my "go to" design technique, its so quick but creates such an effective look.
I then added my photo which I had backed with another of the papers from the Paper Add- On kit just slightly off center. I then added one of the 3x4 cut journalling cards to the left of the photo to balance the design.
I scattered my title and embellishments using the Silicone Charms, Die Cut Shapes, Bitty Puffy Stickers and flair in and around the photo. I so adore the dimension the silicone charms create.
For my journalling I used another of the 3x4 journalling cards and added some stamping from the exclusive Caroline Stamp kit to the top of the card and then hand wrote my journalling below it. I then tucked my journalling behind my photo which I adhered to leave a pocket for the 3x4 card.
I'll be back soon with another layout using the Caroline Kit.
Enjoy your day
Hello Felicity Jane friends! I am so happy to be guest designing for this month with the beautiful Caroline kit. When I saw the colors in the kit and the beautiful journal cards I knew that I wanted to use them to document week 14 in my Project Life album. The colors are the perfect match for our outdoor adventure photos along with the everyday photos.
One of my favorite things about the FJ products is their versatility. As a mom of all boys it is often hard for me to find kits that I can customize to meet our familiy's memory keeping needs. With FJ I can always count on classic designs and colors that easily coordinate with all my photos.
I always start my spread with a title card. Every year I choose the same weekly title card to use all year long to keep consistancy through the whole album. I added the date to the title card with some mint ink that coordinated perfectly with the kit colors. I also added a puffy heart between the dates to bring in a little more color.
I spread the journal cards evenly across my spread to find balance in both color and design.
To embellish the 4x6 cards in the spread I used the stamp set and stamped sentiments in staz on ink. Again, to repeat the colors in the spread and bring added attention to the stamping I added the puffy arrows.
For the "Smile" filler card I punched out the sentiment from the sticker sheet with a 1" inch circle punch and then lifted it up with a few foam squares.
I loved that I could use the stamp set with a "best friends" theme and use it in a new way. All you have to do is step outside the box and think about how these sentiments could apply to different situations.
I love the simple beauty of this card next to the flowers. So pretty!
I needed one more spot for journaling so I simply sent the photo through my typewriter and added it right to the front of the photo.
I just adore the final spread! It was such a pleasure working with the beautiful Caroline kit this month! I adore how the colors in the kit play perfectly with my photos and how I was able to step outside the box and use a "best friends" kit to tell our family's everyday and adventure stories.
Thanks so much for having me! Now go out and make some memories to document!
Hi friends! Mandy here with you today to share a layout that I created using the beautiful Caroline kit!
This kit was perfect for documenting this gorgeous photo of my eldest daughter! I often find selfies like this one that she's taken on my phone, and I love it! All the more photos for me to scrap!
I started my page off by matting my white cardstock background on the aqua & white pinstripe patterned paper. I then cut a large triangle out of the coral sketchy dot paper and adhered it to the bottom left hand corner of the page. I added a smaller triangle of the same paper in the top right hand corner. This gives the page a diagonal flow, drawing the viewer's eye back down to the photo rather than wandering off the page.
Under the left hand side of the photo, I tucked one of the pretty die cut tags, as well as a flower that I fussy cut from the large floral patterned paper. I completed the cluster with a flair button, and one of the cute hearts from the packet of silicone charms.
The die cut word 'smile' was the perfect title for this layout! I added some foam tape underneath it to give it some extra dimension, and I love how this looks! You can also see here that I tucked another fussy cut flower underneath the right hand side of the photo.
On the top right hand corner of the photo I added one of the little banners from the die cut pack, as well as a second banner that I made out of one of the strips on the sticker sheet. I finished them off with a gorgeous white leatherette bow from the kit. How sweet are these bows?!!
I knew that I had to include Caroline on my layout because something about her reminds me of my daughter! I think it's her sprinkling of freckles and her gorgeous long hair. Also her pose makes me think that she's sweet, but also a little bit sassy, just like my gorgeous girl! I'm so glad that I found a spot for her on this page!
Up in the top right hand corner of the layout I created a little cluster that includes a die cut label as well as one of the cute phrases from the silicone charms pack, and a little fussy cut flower.
To finish the layout off I added a couple more of the silicone hearts and a little bit of stamping using one of the stamps from the kit. Lastly I added my journaling and the date.
Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today! I'll be back next week to share another project using the lovely Caroline kit!
Hello! Anita here today to share a new weekly planner spread I created with this month's Caroline kit. Each week, I try to set up my planner spread to have space for appointments, lists, tracking and decorations! I love how this month's kit has some new items that are very planner friendly. For example, the strips of patterned stickers on the cut-apart sheet, the die-cuts and the bitty puffy stickers are all perfect. Love, love, love!!!
I used my favorite A5 vertical planner inserts from the shop (now on sale for 50% off!) as the base for my spread and then cut out the strips of patterned stickers from the cut-apart sheet to use as borders for my pages. I also cut some of them into very thin strips so I could use them to divide my days into different sections.
I then added the white alphabet stickers at the top to designate the month and stamped the dates across the week using my favorite planner stamp set from the Felicity Jane shop. For decoration, I added a few die-cuts and that sweet and sassy girl, Caroline!
The bitty puffy stickers in this month's kit are perfect for designating events throughout the week. They add a little bit of dimension but not too much so they're very planner friendly. I used the little hexagons for appointments and the banners for birthdays. Such a fun, colorful addition to my pages this week!
I also used some stamps from my stash along the bottom of each day to create an area where I can keep track of how many steps I'm walking and how much water I'm drinking. You can use a section like this to track any of your current goals or interests.
Here's a closer look at the left and right pages:
Are you using your Felicity Jane kits in your planner? If so, please share your work! It's fun to see how others use similar products to track their daily activities. Hope you found some fun ideas above to use in your projects. Have a great weekend and happy planning!

Hey there Felicity fans, Nancy here with a closer look at the Caroline kit. This month I challenged myself to making a creative background. I started with this photo of my son snorkeling in the Bahamas. It immediately sparked the idea of bubbles and circles!
I used an electronic die cutting machine to cut out circles in 1-3/4", 3/4" and 1/4" sizes. I think I used just about every single patterned in the Caroline kit. I love it that much! By scattering them through the design, there is plenty of color and movement - perfect for my story.
To give the circles a little lift (and interest), I cut out an extra circle. Next I folded it in half and adhere just one side to an existing circle on the layout. Fluff a bit, and you have a floating 3-D bubble. I love how the shape and texture ties in to my snorkeling theme.
To ground the photo, I used a pink and white patterned paper from the kit. I love how subtle this design is. Perfect for allowing my journaling to shine through. A rubber charm title and heart draw the eye to the words. I tucked the title "BLOOP" just under the photo vertically to really highlight the area. I want the eye to always go back to my photo, despite the beautiful background!
Creating unique backgrounds is a fun way to get creative and tell a story. The Caroline kit is super versatile. I love that I was able to add my own theme and background. Bloop!
Hey friends, Andrea here and I am going to share a traveler's notebook page about something that is deeply important to me! FOOD!
This quote and photo come across my instagram feed and knew I had to use it in my notebook! But when the Caroline kit for April arrived I couldn't believe how perfectly the colors coordinated with the lady's blouse and apron!
I matted the photo on a piece of solid paper from the kit to separate it from the white page and then tucked the top part of a tag behind it for color and dimension. And I basically want to use that teeny floral patterned paper on EVERYTHING! Isn't is darling?
The alphas this month are GORGEOUS and so striking so I used a slang spelling for the word SERIOUSLY for 2 reasons: 1) I like to document current trends and kids and memes are all about making up shorter versions of words and 2) I couldn't actually fit the whole entire word across the page so it was a perfect solution!
To balance out the title, I used a label of the same color from the die cut pack and wrote in my "subtitle". Instead of drawing a heart or writing out the word LOVE, I decided to use one of the tiny rubber hearts to add dimension and color! Isn't it the cutest!?!?
Overall I think I having fun in your memory keeping is top priority and there are no rules as to how sarcastic or humorous you can be. So I say "Go for it!" and be silly and funny even though we are very serious about our love of delicious paper products!
Until next month, Friends!
