Hello FJ friends!
Today I’m sharing a double page spread with you featuring the stunning Shay Kit. The florals in this kit are just beautiful and the first things I reached for to create this project were the floral paper and die cuts.
This spread is very heavy on journaling. I recently had a breast cancer scare and it was a terrifying time. Thankfully the biopsies came back clear but it was something I felt the need to record.
I sized these pages 6 x 8 each so that they would fit into my pocket page album.
For the first page I layered some plain white cardstock onto a strip of the floral and the pink striped paper, then added some stitching. I wrapped some twine around the photo added a Denise Kit charm and tied a bow. I tucked the floral die cut in behind the twine and added two of the puffy word stickers to finish off the embellishment cluster. I used the Shay metal die set to cut a tag to tuck in behind the top of the photo.
For the title I combined the Shay Chipboard Alphabet Stickers with the Reagan Alphabet stamps and metal dies. A foam arrow sticker was adhered under the title and I stamped the date under the photo using the FJ Roller Date Stamp.
I kept the second page very simple because there was so much journaling.
I backed the journaling with the same floral and pink striped paper and stitched around the outside edge of the journaling for texture. The black die cut label and puffy word stickers were then adhered to the top left of the page to finish it off.
You can see my process in the video below...
I think it's just as important to record these sorts of memories and it is to record all the fun ones too. It's all part of your life story after all!
Thank you so much for joining me on the blog today! I'll be sharing another Shay Kit project with you soon!
