Hi FJ Friends!
Ulli here with a favorite product spotlight on the blog. I decided to take the gorgeous Mari Journaling cards, because I’ve wanted to make a pocket page about the first day of school from our little girl.
For my first double page I used the journaling card with the clouds, the "spring" journaling card and the "Live Life In Full Bloom" journaling card. On the other side I’ve used a 6x8 pocket with a big picture.
I fussy cut a picture of our little girl and glued it on the journaling card with the blue sky and the clouds. This card is so perfect, because the sun was shining on this day and the weather was very warm. Then I stitched with my sewing machine around this card with white thread to make a soft frame and a little eye catcher. For the 6x4 inch pocket I used the sweet and soft Mari Notebook paper and cut it down to 6x4 inches. Then I fussy cut the letters from the Mari "Spring" journaling card. I decorated my landscape picture with the pink Mari designer tab and the Jenny Word Sticker "September". I also used the Kate Word Sticker "Outfit Of The Day". I added the letters from the Mari journaling card around the picture and I also used many other FJ alphabet stickers to add more letters and numbers in different colors and sizes (Tori, Grace, Bailey, Gabby, Essentials Mini, Jill, Julia, Rebekah). I love the playful look of this page with this special technique.
For the big picture I used the Lindsey "Love" Metal Die, the pink graphed journaling card and light blue gingham journaling card to make the big title "Love You". For the other word (You) I’ve used the cute Mari Chipboard Alphabet and added a small pink heart from the Brooke Puffy Shapes on the "o". I added the mint designer tab on the top of the 6x8 picture and added the Jenny Word Sticker "Your Day" there.
For the next 6x8 page I also used a Felicity Jane Metal Die - the "happy" metal die from the Sarah collection - and two Mari journaling cards. I’ve used my die cutting machine to make the word "happy" and I used the lined yellow Mari journaling card for it along with the light blue Gingham journaling card. I added the title "happy day" with the Mari Chipboard Alphabet on the right side of my big picture. Then I added the word sticker "Smiles" on the tab and the light blue chipboard heart.
For the next page I cut two pictures to 3x4 inches. I stitched a frame with my sewing machine around them - also with white thread. Then I added the card with the flowers on the right side above and the colored striped one on the bottom. I used a 1.5 inch circle punch to add a half circle on the top and added the Mari journaling card with the dotted lines in green behind the striped card.
I added the Felicity Jane Heidi stamp "So Proud Of You" on the striped journaling card. Then I worked on some more pictures and some journaling to put into this pocket. I used the Shay Metal Die and punched two pictures into this shape and glued them together. Then I knotted a mint ribbon on this tag. I used also some Jenny Word stickers on one picture to decorate it.
Then I made another tag with the dotted green Mari journaling card and the yellow striped card. I wrote my journaling on the back - because the back of the journaling cards has dotted lines or graphic paper and are perfect to add some handwriting.
I also wanted to add a little time line of this special day and so I’ve used the cute Mari card with the color transition from light pink over orange to pink with the numbers. I cut it a little bit smaller and used my typewriter and typed the times and the actions on it. I didn't need the number 7 and so I cut this part off. Then I put these three additional parts into the pocket with the striped card.
Then I finished off this pocket page with a Lindsey epoxy heart in pink and the Jenny Word Sticker "Just For You".
I hope you like my pocket page and I've inspired you to use the wonderful FJ journaling cards for your memory keeping. I love them so much and they are so perfect to make cute pocket page spreads. You don't need much more and your pockets will be always look classy and perfectly matching.
Thank you for stopping by today.
