Hello everyone, it’s Lindsey! This Summer I’ve been focusing on staying unplugged, spending quality time with my boys, and busting through my craft stash (living the dream LOL). I am working on a 100 day journaling project and I’ve found that my supply of Felicity Jane goodies really make a page come together quickly and beautifully. Check out the process video at the end of this post to see how I used a combination of the Denise Collection and past collections to creatively journal today’s prompt.
I’ve never incorporated photos into one of these 100 day journals before but, as I was pulling together supplies for this page, I noticed this selfie of my boys and I and thought it would be a perfect thing to add with the prompt today. They are my reason for staying positive and keeping my focus on what is important in life.
Since the topic is “let good thoughts grow”, I knew I wanted to incorporate lots of the beautiful Felicity Jane florals. I pulled out the Sarah | Die and created a fun gold foiled floral to mix in with the Denise | Die Cut Shapes. Be sure to watch the process video to see how I got the foiled effect with double sided adhesive sheets and foil. I brought in more gold with the Denise | Gold Foil Washi...how adorable is that thin scallop border?!
I usually add some sort of prayer journaling to these entries but I decided that the sentiment stamp from the Jill | Stamp Set said exactly what I wanted to convey and it fit perfectly on this striped tag. I love adding textures to layouts and this one was no different. I folded some plaid washi over on itself and stapled it to the tag instead of using thread or fabric.
Who else saves ALL of their craft trash in case they need it for a project? Well don’t throw away the packaging for your patterned papers because the small swatches are perfect for punching out tabs!
I don’t always embellish both pages in a journal like this but there were so many good phrases from my Felicity Jane stash that paired well with the prompt today. I used another stamped sentiment from the Jill | Stamp Set on one of the Denise | Chipboard Speech Bubbles and a piece from the Jeana Collection (which is still available digitally but not physically).
I love how easy it is to mix and match Felicity Jane collections to come up with something pretty but also meaningful! Try a project like this to use up some of your stash or maybe it will inspire you to pick up some new goodies to try out!
Until next time!
