Mixing Kits | Mandy Melville

Hey FJ friends! Today I want to show you how fun and easy it is to mix together products from various Felicity Jane kits to create a layout! I used bits and pieces from six different kits on this one layout, and I love how it came together!

I documented a recent photo of my son, Isaac, happily playing at the playground. I’ve discovered over the past few years that the best way to capture a photo of him smiling naturally is to photograph him when he’s playing, or doing something that he enjoys! And I think this photo really captures his fun and happy personality.

I started my layout off by matting the photo with three different patterned papers from the Heidi kit, as well as a solid color paper. I really love the combination of the teal, mustard, and wood grain! I think it makes a great colour palette for a masculine layout! I also added two strips of patterned paper down the left hand side of the layout – one from the Heidi kit, and the other from the Willow kit.

I love combining different fonts to create my titles, and this time I went all out to create a fun title that really makes an impact! These are the products that I used to make up my title:

  • London Chipboard Alphabet Stickers
  • Heidi Stamp Set
  • Zoey Acetate Shapes
  • Basic Lowercase Stamp Set
  • Willow Die Cut Shapes
  • Zoey Puffy Alphabet Stickers

I also added a flair button from the Summer collection next to the title.

On the bottom right hand side of the photo I added a sticker from the Sophie kit. I also tucked a tag that I had left over from the Willow kit under the right hand side of the photo. I found that the Willow die cut shapes coordinate perfectly with the colours in the Heidi kit!

To add an extra element of fun to the layout, I scattered some of the wood veneer confetti and little hexagon die cuts from the Heidi kit around the page. Lastly, I added some stamping, using both the Heidi and the Willow stamp sets.

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I hope that you enjoyed seeing how I combined products from different FJ kits to create this layout! If you’ve created a layout using a mix of FJ kits, share it on Instagram and tag me (@mandy1980), so that I can check it out and be inspired by you as well!
