“Library Book” TN Layout | Danielle Menage-JensenSep 30, 2019
Danielle here, sharing my very first project for Felicity Jane using the lovely Shay kit.
I was totally inspired by all the beautiful items in the kit this month, particularly the gorgeous Shay library cards. I knew I wanted to use one of those cards straight away and I also knew that I wanted to do a TN layout.
I had this idea to have a TN dedicated purely to my Felicity Jane journey over the next 6 months and I wanted my first page to replicate a library book - complete with library card and little pocket to hold the card.
I opted to use a Lindsey tiny heart notebook for this project as I associate those cute tiny black hearts with Felicity Jane - I wanted the cover of my TN to reflect that. I jazzed up the cover even more by hand stitching a “FJ” to the front with pink thread. I did this by printing out the FJ from my computer, washi taping the template to the cover of the TN and then using a poking tool to poke the outline holes and then removed the template and carefully stitched through the cover of the TN.
To cover up the reverse of the stitched cover, I used the beautiful Shay star paper, cut it to size and taped it to the front page. Then I needed to start work on my library pocket. I did this by recycling some of the Felicity Jane packaging and, with a bit of fiddling, managed to cut my packaging to fit the Shay library card and glued it into place in the TN.
I stamped onto my library card using the name stamps from the past three previous months kits, to give the impression of each of the gorgeous kit girls checking out the TN, like a library book. I stamped the corresponding dates of the kit releases using my trusty FJ roller date stamp and added some super cute Lola puffy alphabet stickers and some of the Shay chipboard asterisks to the pocket.
On the other page, I backed my photo onto more of the Shay stars paper, added a little die cut tag using the Shay tag builder and added my journaling to the bottom of the page along with some more super cute Shay chipboard asterisks.
I hope you enjoy my layout and thanks so much for reading. I’ll be back soon with another post.
