Hey there FJ pals! I’m so excited to be sharing a project using the Joy kit! It’s probably no surprise that I love December. The holidays are so warm and cozy feeling, and I just love the uplifting feeling of the projects people share.
While I am keeping a December album, I wanted to share a traveler’s notebook layout with you today. Along with my December album, I do traditional scrapbook pages and TN layouts throughout the month. The Joy kit has been perfect for these projects!
I’m a huge fan of FJ vellum. I previously shared this TN layout on the blog, and when I saw the Joy vellum, I knew I wanted to do something similar! Since my photo isn’t Christmas-specific, I decided to use the light greens, blacks, and pinks in this project.
I kept it pretty simple, since the vellum and small embellishments added so much detail to the layout. Just a little bit of paper layering on both sides of the page, along with clusters of embellishments that matched the color scheme I chose.
Since the photo I was documenting was of the colorful leaves of the trees, I used most of the tree elements from the Joy collection. It went along with the theme so well, even though I wasn’t documenting a pine or Christmas tree specifically.
The stamps were the perfect finishing touches for this project. I used one of the phrases as my journaling - it encompassed everything I wanted to say about the layout and I love the way it looks against that wood grain paper!
One of my favorite things about the items that come in the monthly FJ kits is how much I am challenged to think outside of my normal box of creativity. I love creating layouts that are interactive and have interest. This was the perfect kit to do just that!
I’ll be back later this month to share another project using the Joy collection. Until then, I’ll be checking out your projects on Instagram under the #FJjoy hashtag!
