Today I have a pocket page spread to share with you that I’ve created using the Alexis Digital Kit. I love that we can now play with our Felicity Jane Kits in the digital format too as it really does open up so many possibilities!
First of all I created some blank pages in Photoshop, arranged a variety of elements, stamps, journaling cards and cropped selections of the papers from the kit and printed them out. I then decided on two of the journaling cards to use and added text to them in photoshop before printing and cropping them to size.
I added the ‘LOVE’ stamp to the bottom right of the first photo, then added a little machine stitching for texture.
Next to that photo I decided to create my own custom card! I really loved the camera icon in the elements pack but I needed it in a different colour. Using photoshop I was able to change it to match the other yellows in the kit…so fun! I reduced its size then added the ‘favorite photo’ stamp below to create the look I wanted. Once it was printed I adhered an arrow flair below the stamp.
At the bottom of this page I used the ‘this happened today’ card with my printed journaling. I kept the guinea pig photo very simple by just adding the first initial of her name…W for Willow. The gorgeous Joy Foam Alphabet was perfect for this!
At the top of my second page I have another cute guinea pig photo with a C alpha sticker for Chewie. I also added the cute striped paper clip to the top right. I love elements that poke out of the top of the pages in my albums! Next to the photo I have the other printed journaling card.
To finish off this spread I created another custom card. I chose the pale grey dots journaling card, layered two of the heart elements with some machine stitching, and added the ‘this’ label underneath. This card helped to tie all the colors from the rest of the spread together. The photo has the ‘so good’ stamp stitched to the top right corner.
If you’d like to watch how I put this spread together you can see my process video below.
Creating with digital elements really is so fun! I love being able to add my text straight onto the journaling cards so easily and to change colours and sizes of elements to suit my design too!
I hope I’ve inspired you to try creating your own custom cards and pieces using the Alexis digital kit!
