I don't know about you, but I sure love a good pocket page. I'm using the FJ 6x8 album (from the hello, Christmas! kit this past December) this year and for the size, I feel like I can fit so many details of a story without it looking crowded.
My FJ kits are one of my favorite ways to create pocket pages because between the patterned papers, stamp sets, and embellishments, I can create a page I love and know that everything will look cohesive.
Plus, I can usually pull almost any previous FJ item from my stash and know that it will work with the current kit. Talk about crafting bliss!
For this page, I used the Jane kit and mixed in a few elements from past kits (Sophie and London) to bring it all together! I love the way the London alphas pop against that beautiful floral patterned paper!
I'm also happy to report that I am slowly but surely getting better at stamping. I've mentioned in previous posts that it's something I struggle with. I love that my layouts not only tell the story I'm documenting, but also the story of me as a creative. I can look through my album and see the gradual improvement in certain techniques. SO COOL!!
I love love love using my FJ stamp sets to stamp on a layout, and then adding a bit of color with markers or paint. I did that with the "Best Friend" stamp on my journal card and love the extra pop of color and character it adds!
I'm super curious - what techniques are you still working on mastering? Am I the only one who struggles with stamping? Let's chat about it in the comments below!
