A Journey with FJ Alphabet Stamps | Lorilei Murphy

Hello! Lorilei here today sharing a new layout with you!  I have been eyeing up the journey die cut from the Hannah kit, and finally had a good idea of what I could do with it!  I love the long quote about the best kind of journey, and it gave me the perfect opportunity to get my stash of Felicity Jane alphabet stamps out!

My first step was to do some planning for my page.  Usually, I wing everything, but this time I sorted it all out first!  I laid out my photo and the journey die cut and then drew some light pencil lines above and below those two pieces.  I used my t-square ruler to make sure my lines were straight!  Next, I started stamping.  I used a combination of the  Bold Alpha Stamp, Basics Lowercase Stamp Set and the Outline Alpha Stamp Set.  I didn't plan out which stamp set would go where I just mixed and matched, however, they looked best.  Once I got to the line for the word questions, I decided to use two alphas to make that word.  The chipboard alpha in black is one of my favorite alphas!

Once I had all my title stamping done, I turned to the Hannah stamp set and used the gorgeous floral bunch stamp to add some detail around the page.  I stamped it twice under the photo on each side and hanging off the edge at the top and bottom of the page.  To finish off the background, I added some swipes of pink paint for a pop of color!

Next, I added some plain white paper, a doily and some foam to my photo and adhered it in its spot; I added the super pretty rose die cut from the Lola kit and the black circle with the heart just above the photo.  I cut my layout down to 1o" wide.

On the left side of the layout, I added the black and white floral paper from Lola, I left the yellow branding strip on the paper for an extra pop of color, and it picks up the tiny amount of yellow in the rose die cut.  I stamped the questions and answers stamp from the Hannah stamp set on an extra piece of paper and tucked it into the side along with a scrap of blue gingham paper!  I adore Felicity Jane alpha stamp sets, for me they are a must have stash item!
