First Haircut Layout | Jana Bennett

Hello everyone,

and hello March! I am here with my first blog post of the month and I am so excited to dig deep into my FJ materials and use the older items. I have to tell you: when I get something older out, I fall in love with it all over again! These materials will truly never go out of the fashion!

I have a spread for you that I created in an A5 notebook. Felicity Jane has a great variety of designs so make sure to check them out. The size is just perfect for telling the little, yet none the less important stories of your life. I don't use metal die cuts very often but there is one that I would always pull out: the tag builder. Such a brilliant thing.

I love how differently you can decorate the tags. I created three different tags that I was going to use for my layout. Two are for journaling ...

... and one is to hold my younger daughter's hair. I simply die cut two tags and used a craft knife to make a little window. Then I went for a plastic package (#reuse) to create a pocket for the hair. At the end I just glued the two tags together.

As you can see the spread is very simple - photos on one side, the tags with the story on the other side.

Since I wanted to use both sides of the tags I decided to create three little pockets. I fell in love with the organza material from last time and wanted to use it again. I folded it and sew it onto the page with a thread (i'm still wishing hard, and dropping subtle hints to my hubby for a sewing machine). Just before adding the last stitches I filled the pockets (those were created thanks to the folding of organza) with some pretty sequins. The tags are easy to slide in and out and it all creates a nice texture.

As you might remember these are all beautiful papers from the Shay kit. I just love the flowers! The mint paper goes nicely with the pictures.

I love little details so I added a bit of a tag peaking out and a string. I don't have a big stapler but the trick is to open the stapler and use a soft towel under your page. Then you just have to close the metal bits at the other side. I like using a stapler not only for the interesting effect but it also keeps the string in its place.

Felicity Jane alphabets are so versatile and easy to be combined. For the title I used Jenny and the little Madison puffy alphabet.

And now tell me. Do you also keep the baby hair and treasure it in your projects?
