Hello crafty friends!
Ulli here with you today with my very first Felicity Jane blogpost and I am so incredibly happy to be here. Thank you so much for having me Jeana!
I've made a heart shaped mini book with the gorgeous new Henley Kit. It has the title "Lucky Me" and I've put 6 things in it that make me happy. I only used photos and things from the last two months (January and February 2018). I printed the text on vellum, cut it in smaller size and used only black and white photos for this mini book. To attach all my vellum pieces with the journaling on the pages, I used a mini stapler.
First I punched out all the pretty Henley papers in a heart shape (4.25x3.75 inch) and some of the pretty papers twice.
For the cover page I used the beautiful floral paper from the Henley Kit and I framed the heart with the super cute peach mini pom trim from this kit. I stitched it with my sewing machine on the border of the heart.
For the title I cut the brush script word "Lucky" with my Silhouette Cameo. I used the mint solid paper from the Henley kit. For the word "Me" I used the gold foil puffy stickers.
I used a white book ring from my stash to hold all the pages from the mini together. I punched holes in every heart shaped page.
I made a vellum shaker pocket in light pink and filled it with the pretty brushed gold sequins from the Henley kit and some little shamrocks which I cut out with my Cameo from the mint solid cardstock. I also used some mint and pink sequins from my stash.
I cut out a label from a Henley journaling card and stamped with a roller date stamp the months February and January and the year 2018 on it. I only used photos and events from these months in this mini book. I decorated it with a vellum tab in pink and the cute washi stickers.
I numbered all the things that make me happy from 1 to 6 and glued numbers beside the text.
To give the mini a playful look I mixed up the Henley gold foil alphabet with the essential puffy alphabet stickers in pinkish, aqua and white. On one page I mixed the die cuy title "Simple Life" and the white puffy alphabet stickers and I love how this page came out. The scalloped paper from the Henley Kit is so beautiful and matches perfectly with this mixed title.
Are these heart speech bubbles from the washi stickers not super cute?
I punched out most of my photos in a heart shape and I used only two rectangular photos. One of them I framed with the peach die cut frame from the Henley Kit.
Often I put the photo on one page and used the opposite page for the journaling.
It was so much fun to decorate all the pages with the super cute Henley embellishments. The die cut shapes, wood veneer shapes, washi stickers and the epoxy dots are perfect for making every project special and unique.
One page from the mini is a embossed vellum heart. I embossed the punched vellum heart with a polka dot embossing folder. I attached the journaling with the stapler on it and decorated it with some shamrocks made with the mint solid cardstock, two die cut labels, the white alphabet puffy stickers and the epoxy dots.
For my last page i used the rest of the paper from my "Lucky" title and punched it in a heart shape too. Then I backed it with the peach solid cardstock from the kit.
Some of my pages got the finishing touch with the super cute Henley stamp set.
To finish off my mini book I used some pinkish baker´s twin and tied the wood veneer tag with the heart on it. I also decorated the twine with two tassels from the Joy Kit, a striped button from the Autumn Kit and a tiny tag from the older Zoey kit. Then I knotted it on the book ring from my mini.
I really love how my mini turned out and I hope you like it too. You can watch an album flip in the process video.
Till the next time.
