Hi FJ friends!
Ulli here today and I am so happy to show you my first project for the Felicity Jane blog this year! I wish you all a magical and healthy new year 2019 with a lot of creativity!
I wanted to do a wintery page with two of my favorite photos from our last year’s ski vacation in February and I decided to use last year’s January Kit Reagan and the Holly December collection for it. Both collections were made for the winter season and they matches perfectly together. They have both the colors pink and grey in their color palette and the tree papers were great for my photos. Do you often mix different Felicity Jane collections? Its so much fun and you can never go wrong with that!
The plan was to use also a lot of white to let it snow also on my layout too.
First I cut my white cardstock to the size 8.5x11 inch. Then I cut a paper stripe of the Holly paper "Holly & Trees" in 1 3/4 inch and a small paper stripe of the Reagan paper "Stripes & Plaid“. I glued them both on the border on the bottom of my layout. First the bigger one and above the smaller plaid paper stripe. Then I stitched with my sewing machine over the border from the Holly paper.
I cut out a little pocket with my Silhouette Cameo and the FJ cut file from the iNSD 2018. Therefor I used the Reagan paper "Lines & Trees“ and I love the inside of this pocket with the trees. I made a little shaker pocket with the plastic bag from FJ journaling cards and filled it with the wonderful Holly Snowflake sequins, some FJ star confetti in black, FJ wooden trees & stars in light, pinkish sequins and some self made paper confetti in white. I also filled a pink plus sign from the Reagan Die cut shapes in this bag and stitched with my sewing machine over it to close it. Shaker elements always bring fun and playfulness in your memory keeping projects.
To have a little and soft eye catcher I stitched criss-cross over the upper part of my layout with my sewing machine and white thread. I also stitched over the love lettering from the Reagan Die Cut Shapes. I used my stapler to fix some of the super cute glitter ribbon on the top of my big snowy photo and then I glued it on the top of my layout.
I fixed some of the Joy Mini Pompom Trim in white with my mini stapler on the bottom of my small photo. I glued this photo with the size of 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch on the pink pocket. Then I decorated a white miniwide paperclip with a black and white striped ribbon and fixed it on this photo. I arranged the pocket and the shaker bag under the big photo and added the love die cut on the right side of my paper pocket with the photo. I used a stapler to fix the shaker pocket on my layout and for the pocket I used foam dots to add some dimension.
I punched out more white paper confetti with a hand punch and glued it under and around my three elements on my layout. Then I used a snowflake die and my Big Shot to make some snowflakes from white cardstock. I decorated my layout with them too. I wrote the date were the pictures were taken on a white Zoey mini tag and glued it on a pink one from the Reagan Die Cut shapes. I knotted them together with white thread and glued them on the right corner on my shaker pocket.
I also used the wonderful Holly stamp set and stamped the words "Magical moment“ and three of the stars on m layout. You can use this stamp set not only for December projects. Some of the stamps fit perfectly to other themes too! All FJ stamps are very versatile and this is one of the reasons why I love them so much!
For the title I used a pink label from the Reagan kit and glued it with foam dots on the top of my shaker pocket. I glued the word "Winter“ with the Glitter Puffy Alphabet from the Holly collection on it and the word "Wonderland“ in two lines with the Holly Mini Puffy Alphabet in black under it. I used two of the Reagan Die Cut Snowflakes to decorate my layout and glued the Holly word sticker "Remember this“ against my big photo. I had left a white paper bow which I made for my December Album with the FJ Holiday Wreath & Bow cut file and it matches perfectly to this dreamy layout. So I glued it on the top of my photo to set a highlight there.
I printed my journaling out and glued it on a white card to have a hidden journaling on this page. I made this card a little bit smaller so the trees don’t disappear with the inserted journaling card. Then I decorated the layout with a Joy Tree button, one of the super lovely Reagan Chipboard Hearts in pink, some of the Epoxy Stickers from the Reagan kit and some of the Henley Epoxy Dots.
I hope you like my snowy layout and maybe I could inspire you to mix some of the Felicity winter collections to make a wintery project.
Have a nice week! Until the next time!
