Hi FJ Friends!
This year I’ve been adding a spread to my A5 Notebook each month about things I love, things I’m doing and things I want to remember. I’m really enjoying this ongoing project so far and today sharing my latest entry with you which features the gorgeous June Kit!
I like to create my pages outside the notebook then adhere them in when they’re finished. This allows me to use my sewing machine and stapler wherever I like. It does add bulk to my notebook but I love it that way!
For this spread I wanted to document a trip to our local market. It’s always such a lovely way to spend the morning wandering around the stalls. There’s always lots of beautiful food to buy and you never know what else you might find!
I printed my photo out to full size for the first page and cut some white cardstock to size for the second page. I added a 1 inch strip of my favourite Plaid paper from the June Paper Pack across the bottom of each page and added some machine stitching.
I stamped a phrase from the Mari stamp onto white cardstock then added it on the top half of the photo with a little stitching and a die cut heart, then added three cute white puffy flowers and leaves around the photo too.
For the title at the top of the second page, I chose the Julia Puffy Alphabet Stickers as I loved how well the colour went with orange plaid paper. I finished off the title with the word “days” from the June Stamp Set. I added another puffy white flower and leaves above the title and a little more stitching across the stamped “days” word.
I printed my journaling onto white cardstock, cut it out and added it to the centre of the June Designer Tag with the grid before adding some stitching and a mustard miniwide paper clip. I also added a green chipboard heart from the Mari Kit and another white puffy flower and leaf.
Under the journaling I added another stamped phrase from the Mari Stamp Set and the word “explore” from the June Stamp Set. I added a little more stitching and finished off with a date-stamped label at the bottom.
There is a video below if you'd like to see my process...
Have you tried documenting in a Felicity Jane A5 notebook yet? I hope I’ve inspired you to give it a try as it’s such a fun size to create with!
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! Have a happy day!
