Hello Crafty Friends!
I’ve been adding to my Felicity Jane A5 notebook every month throughout this year and today I have another fun spread to share with you. Last month my husband surprised me by sending me this gorgeous bunch of flowers while he was away for work, and the lovely Emily Kit with it’s pretty florals was just perfect for documenting this sweet memory!
I always like to create my pages outside the notebook which allows me to add things like stitching and staples before adhering them in. I cut a piece of Essentials White Cardstock for the first page and stitched a border around the edge, then printed my photo to the same size for the second page of the spread.
I fussy-cut a selection of flowers out of the Floral paper from the paper pack and set them aside.
For my journaling I chose a tag from the June Designer Tag Set and backed it with some yellow solid colour cardstock from the June Paper Pack making sure I had the scalloped edge at the bottom. I printed the journaling onto vellum then attached it to the cardstock tag by stitching a row across the top.
I arranged the larger fussy-cut flowers on the white cardstock page then adhered my journaling piece to the centre. I made sure to arrange the flowers so they would be peeking out all around the edges of the journaling. The small flowers were also adhered into place.
I used the Emily Puffy Alphabet Stickers paired with a puffy “story” sticker from the Capri Kit to add the title above the journaling then added a stamped sentiment from the Mari Stamp Set. I also added a little puffy asterisk to finish off the cluster.
I tucked the “Chapter No. 9” die cut ticket under the left side of the journaling, then added the date under the scalloped edge.
At the bottom of the full-page photo I created a little cluster using a yellow label sticker, a floral Emily Cardstock Flair, a die cut “love” word and puffy heart sticker from the Capri Kit, and another stamped phrase from the Mari Stamp Set. Stitching was also added across the label for a little extra texture.
There is a video below if you'd like to watch my process...
I love this pretty new addition to my A5 notebook and I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how it all came together!
If you haven’t created in this format before I encourage you to give it a try. It’s such a fun size to work with and it’s perfect for all sorts of documenting projects
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
