Hey there, it’s Kathleen again, and I hope you have already received your Alexis kit and have fun playing with it! ;) By the time I was making my project for today’s blogpost, I was still waiting for mine to arrive.
And while I could have used the new digital option of the kit (which I think is absolutely awesome, especially because you can now use those precious die cuts and journaling cards without fear of finding a project later where they would have been even more perfect, haha), I thought I would use this time and use up some of the supplies from my older Felicity Jane kits.
What I love about the FJ kits is how the products work so well together - you can easily mix and match different kits and it will look like it was meant to be. Especially with the black and white patterns in each one it is very easy.
The “oldest“ kit I used on my layout is the Felicity kit (for the yellow acetate heart, the pink heart circle and the tag peeking out from behind my cluster) and the most recent would be the gold chipboard heart and the black and white heart border from one of the papers in the Reagan kit.
The die cut shapes from the Zoey kit had exactly the colors I was going for for this page and I finally found the perfect photo to use the yellow flower die cuts with :) I also used the super cute bitty puffy stickers and the clear stamp set from the Zoey kit on the label I put at the bottom of my photo which I had layered on one of the Zoey journaling cards.
The “the cutest“ stamp was just perfect for this photo of our dog photobombing one of my photos. My husband was taking a photo of me holding some flowers I got as a farewell gift from my former colleagues and Flaca decided she wanted to have a look (and sniff ;) ), too.
The “hello“ die cut word I used for the title came from the Heidi die cut shapes package.
So in total I used parts from five different kits to make this layout (well, six if you count that black and white die cut heart from the Mila kit, haha) and I think they all work together absolutely perfectly!
As long as you decide on a certain color scheme (I would suggest not using more than about 3-4 colors, plus black and white), it’s really easy to still get a cohesive look!
I hope this layout inspired you to maybe get out all the bits and pieces you have left from your older Felicity Jane kits and come up with your own combinations. It’s not only fun to put together your own small “kits“, it will also make you feel really good when you have used up things from your stash ;)
Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
