March pocket pages | Julie KinneeveaukApr 19, 2016
The March kit contained some amazingly adaptable pocket page cards, so while I was anxiously awaiting the new April kit, I was secretly happy to have some extra time to play with "Tuesday".
I feel like I need to write a disclaimer, here. If you're looking for awesome techniques to try out with your kit, I definitely refer you to some of the other Creative Team member's posts. Several of those girls rock my mind with their creative minds and fun, fresh ideas. I'm much more of a practical, functional scrapper that is content just to combine some photos with paper and journaling and I share my ideas hoping that maybe I'll encourage someone who's new to scrapbooking or also prefers a simpler approach.
I thought I'd walk you through each card and explain just how SIMPLE these were to create. It doesn't have to be overwhelming. I want to show how well-equipped each kit is, and share that by simply adding these few supplies above to the March Felicity Jane kit, I was able to create a fun spread for my 6x8 album.
I loved this "3" card, and would be fine including it by itself, but thought it'd be fun to specify what the 3 stood for on my page (3rd month of the year, March). I used this awesome stamp set (sneak alert), and stamped using my Versafine ink pad onto the label which was included in the cut-apart sheet this month. To adhere, I simply stapled it on using my personalized gold mini stapler (found in the Felicity Jane shop).
This card features an on-the-fly not-so-great photo, so I had no problem writing directly on the photo and covering up the white space. I simply added the "Tuesday" label from the cut-apart sheet and stamped the date directly on the photo in the top corner. I'd recommend a "Slick Writer" type pen when writing directly on smooth surfaces like this photo paper. (not pictured).
By now, you're probably picking up on a theme, lol... add a cut-apart label... But they're so versatile it's crazy not to! :) Here instead of stamping, I used the awesome Felicity Jane alpha stickers across the label, then dug through my older kit stash and found these enamel dots to add on the sides. Doesn't get much easier, does it? :)
I love cards that save room for my journaling, so simply stamped this sentiment from the monthly stamp set, added the date stamp and jotted down my thoughts about hiking in the snow and my gratitude for friends who make me do it. :)
The last page came together quickly by adding a couple of stamped images (again from the kit) and a couple strips of the thin washi tape. Each card is so plain by itself, but when they're grouped together, it creates a nice story.
My hope is that if you've purchased a Felicity Jane kit, you realize you have the tools to pull your memories together! A monthly kit has all the materials you need to help you slide your memories into pockets, and they're designed beautifully so you'll enjoy looking back on them for many years to come! I hope this example sparks a feeling of "I can do this" and you're rushing off to dig through the Tuesday kit for one last time before April's Chloe arrives! :)
