Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! I get lots of questions about how I use Felicity Jane products to document photos of my boys since the products are usually pretty feminine (which I love!), so I thought I’d share a layout using the Hope Collection in a more masculine way. Be sure to check out the process video at the end of the post!
I started with an 8.5x11 piece of solid cardstock and layered some branding strips and strips of patterned paper to the bottom. I chose a few of the papers that didn’t really have any pink and used some nesting circle dies to cut a variety of sized circles. I chose to stitch around these before adhering them down but I also stitched a circle directly onto the layout.
I wanted to carry the circle theme throughout the layout so I grabbed a few of the buttons and some Brie Chipboard Flair, which are an absolute favorite of mine and added those to the page as well.
I don’t always add layers behind my photos but I did on this layout to help the photos stand out from the rest of the layout.
I typically hide my journaling but I decided to just type out some simple journaling about the day and add it under the photo of Ayden. The story behind this day is one of those memories that I know that they will keep with them and that is one of the many reasons why I love to scrapbook.
The title is a mix of the Hope alphas and a chipboard sticker from the Bailey Collection. The cluster of circles in the bottom right corner weren’t originally grouped that way but an accident with my paper piercer made it necessary to save the layout (you can see the disaster in my process video LOL).
That’s it! I love that the kits offer enough neutral patterns and muted colors that I can piece together a more masculine project or I can go all out with fussy cut florals and everything girly for something more feminine. The Hope Kit is sold out but you can still purchase pieces from the collection individually so head on over to the shop and grab some goodies and get to crafting!
Until next time!
