'Lemonade' Layout with the Elizabeth Kit | Mandy MelvilleJul 29, 2019
Mandy here with you today to share a layout using the fun and summery Elizabeth kit! When I saw all of the cute lemon images throughout this kit, I knew that I would have to use it to document a photo that I took of my youngest daughter last summer when she set up a lemonade stand in our driveway. She had made some delicious homemade lemonade with Daddy during the day, and when I arrived home from work in the evening, she was all ready to hand me a glass. It was so cute, and of course I had to take a few quick photos. I'm so glad that I was able to document this memory perfectly using the Elizabeth kit!
I decided on creating a grid style design for this layout. It's one of my go-to designs, and I think it's so much fun embellishing each of the sections in the grid. I started with the journaling card that has the lemons on it, and I cut a semi-circle out of the top of it to make it into a pocket. I then typed up my journaling on my typewriter and adhered it to a tag that I had leftover from my Heidi kit. (These are available to purchase separately in the FJ shop - link below). I added some cotton twine to the tag, and then tucked it into the pocket.
Next I matted my photo with another one of the journaling cards from the kit and I adhered it to the right of the journaling pocket. I added a couple of die cut flowers to the bottom right hand corner of the photo, and you can see that I used craft foam underneath them to give them some added dimension.
For the next part of the grid, I used one of the solid color papers from the kit, and I trimmed it down to 3x4 inches to make it the same size as the journaling cards. I added my title to this piece using the Hannah Epoxy Alphabet stickers. I love that the Felicity Jane alphabet stickers coordinate with different kits as I don't usually use up the entire pack in a month. These ones matched perfectly with soft pink in the Elizabeth kit. I also added one of the layered cardstock stickers across the bottom of the card, and I created a little cluster using a chipboard piece and one of the silicone charms from the kit.
For the final section of the grid I used the script patterned paper, which is one of my favourite papers in the kit! I adhered one of the lemon die cuts to the middle, and then layered a label on top, which I added the date to using my FJ roller date stamp.
I finished the layout off with a sprinkling of smaller embellishments including tiny die cut flowers, epoxy hearts, and Megan puffy stickers.
I love how this page turned out and I had a lot fun creating it! I hope that you're enjoying creating with the Elizabeth kit as much as I am!
