Each month, I'm blown away by the great variety and USEFULNESS of the Felicity Jane stamps. This month, the excellent story prompts particularly struck me and I couldn't help myself... I knew I had to mass-produce journaling cards that I can use to tell my stories throughout the rest of the year.
One of my favorite thing to do when my kit arrives is to spend a little time playing with the stamps and some coordinating ink colors. By allowing myself this little 'mess session', I inevitably stumble upon a combination that sparks an idea, and I'm off with a project in mind!
Once I start playing, I'll find that sometimes the shape of the stamp just *belongs* in a
certain journaling card...
(Or within a little tag or die cut)...
I think I've shared before that I'm borderline terrible at taking photos (ugh), but it's very important to me that our moments are recorded. In order to keep this ^ journaling card 'note friendly', I simply added this striped tag. The lines make a perfect spot to jot a story.
By the end of my stamping session, I had created all of these personalized journaling cards. Each of those stamps just seem to want to pull a story out of me! I also love how positive and affirming the Felicity Jane sentiments are. While "the good and the bad" are both equally important to tell, I love looking back and reflecting on the things I love and am grateful for.
In addition to the 3x4 cards that were included in the kit, I went ahead and cut a few out of the larger 12x12 paper so I'd have some cards on hand to grab in the future. I selected the patterns that were more 'journaling-friendly' so I could always have a spot to house my stories.
I hope you take time to "play" with the stamps this month and see where that leads you!
