Hi friends! I'm back today to share another layout that I created using the lovely 'Willow' kit! I just can't get enough of the florals in this kit, so I had to feature them again on this layout!
I documented a recent photo of my hubby and I, taken when we went out for brekky for his birthday. I'm trying to remember to get more photos of the two of us together, even if it is just a selfie, because I think sometimes it can be easy to forget to do that when we are busy taking so many photos of our kids.
I adore that wood crochet lace patterned paper, and thought that it would make a soft and pretty background for my layout. I love how it looks teamed up with the beautiful coral colours in the kit!
I decided to use one of the beautiful Felicity Jane cut files that are available from the Silhouette Design Store to create the title for this layout. It was the perfect phrase for this page, and I love how it looks cut out of the coral chevron dot paper! I added small pieces of foam tape underneath the cut file to lift it up off the page and to give it some extra dimension. The shadow that this creates helps the title to stand out a little more, rather than getting lost against the background.
I literally can't stop fussy cutting the beautiful flowers on the floral patterned paper! They make the perfect embellishments, and I love how they look layered together like I've done here on the bottom left hand corner of the photo.
Here you can see some of the layers of patterned paper that I added underneath my photo. I also added a strip of the gorgeous rose gold foil washi tape! Under the right hand side of the photo I tucked another fussy cut floral, and then I popped a flair button on top.
I added another strip of the rose gold foil washi tape up in the top right hand corner of the layout, and popped another floral cluster on top which I adhered with some foam tape. Adding this in the top right hand corner helps to balance out the florals on the bottom left of the photo, and provides a diagonal flow to the layout, drawing the viewer's eye back down to the photo.
To finish the layout off, I added a few of the die cuts around the layout, and then did some stamping using the 'Willow' stamp set. I also popped a couple of the little puffy heart stickers that are in the alphabet sticker pack onto the page. Lastly I added my journaling and the date.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
Have you been drooling over those gorgeous floral die cuts in the Willow kit this month! As soon as I opened my box I was immediately drawn to the pretty floral die cuts and the sweet Willow girl. I wanted to use all of them on a layout, but having two boys sometimes it is hard to add florals to my pages. I came up with a solution - use a photo of my son with my best friend and her daughter! See a win win situation!
I layed down my photo and then I started arranging the die cuts above my photo.It took me several minutes to find the arrangement I liked but then I adhered them down, some with pop dots to add some definition and shadow.
I then added some stamping from the Clear Stamp set from this month and a couple of the Puffy Stickers in and around the flowers.
The gold washi was the perfect addition to help hold down my photo. I punched some small circles from one of the 3x4 cards to match the soft blue in the photo and to bring a touch of masculinity to the layout.
I added the scallop die cut to form a kind of base for the flowers to bloom from, it stopped them floating around the page.
The soft texture that is created with all the flowers makes it my new favorite layout!
Grab those floral die cuts in the Willow kit and get scrapping!
Today I have a layout to share with you that I created using the beautiful 'Willow' kit!
I absolutely love the gorgeous colours and the beautiful florals in this kit, and it was perfect for documenting this lovely photo of my Mum with my son.
The pattern on my Mum's top matched perfectly with the dark teal boho patterned paper, so I decided to feature this patterned paper by adding a strip of it across the page. I also cut the scallop border strip off one of the solid color papers and tucked this under the bottom edge of the patterned paper. I think this adds a lovely detail and finishes it off nicely.
I decided to add my photo, title, and embellishments in a vertical design down the middle of the page.
I love the floral patterned paper in the kit, and it was just calling to be fussy cut, so of course I did! I tucked one of the fussy cut florals under the top edge of the patterned paper. When I adhered it, I only added glue to the centre of it, as I wanted the edges of the flowers to lift off the page. This helps to give them some dimension and movement. I also used the 'Willow' stamp set to stamp the phrase 'Happy Day' three times at the top of the page.
Moving down the page, I adhered my photo so that it was half overlapping the patterned paper. I added foam tape underneath the photo to give it some extra height and dimension. I then layered two of the 3x4 journaling cards, using one of the cute rose gold paperclips to keep them together, and tucked them under the right hand side of the photo. The puffy stickers in this kit are so soft and beautiful, and I just had to add one of the little hearts to the journaling card on the top.
I think I might be addicted to fussy cutting these beautiful florals! I love the way this one looks tucked under the side of the photo.
To create my title, I teamed together the lovely coral puffy alphabet stickers from the 'Willow' kit along with the 'Sophie' alphabet stickers. I often like to combine different alphas in my titles, as I think it adds some extra interest to the layout.
Underneath my title I added some typed journaling, which I cut into strips, and then lastly at the bottom of the page, I adhered one of the lovely branding strips off one of the patterned papers.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I hope that you enjoyed taking a closer look at my layout. I'll be back next week to share another project using the lovely 'Willow' kit!

Hey friends! I'm back today to share how you can use your FJ goodies, even if you don't take a ton of photos. I'm currently in a busy and boring season of life, and I haven't taken many photos I feel like documenting. But! I of course want to use my gorgeous kits.
Enter... art journaling!
I use one of the Felicity Jane TN inserts because the paper quality is AMAZING and such a crisp white! For this layout, I chose the pieces in the kit that I kept gravitating to and wanting to use. From there, I just went to town and let my inner-crafty voice tell me what to do.
You can just as easily create art journaling scrapbook layouts or pocket pages as well! Don't let photos limit your craftiness. If you're loving products, creating something with them and just enjoy the process.
You can even add journaling (like you would on a layout with photos) so when you look back, you can remember the fun crafty moment you had.
I added the date and a few reminders to myself to make each day a good one!
Have you used your FJ kits to art journal or create layouts without photos? Make sure you tag them on Instagram using #felicityjane so I can see!
I hope you're having as much fun with Willow as I am. Talk to y'all soon!
Today I'd like to share another layout created with the lovely Willow Kit. I decided to go with a grid design for this page.
I selected two patterned papers and a striped journaling card from the kit and cut them to the same size as my photo. After working out where I'd like to position them I used a ruler and pencil to mark a grid for stitching a border.
My paper squares were adhered into place and I used my sewing machine to stitch around each one. The photo was adhered using foam tape to add dimension and to help make it the focus of the page.
For the striped square I used a circle punch to cut a scripted journaling card to fit, adhered it with foam squares and added a puffy bow sticker. To finish of the pink square I simply added a die cut heart with a foam dot and messy thread underneath.
For the yellow square I layered two die cuts and added a puffy camera sticker above them. A cute little oval paper clip from the kit finished it off on the top right corner.
Some flowers were fussy cut from one of the other patterned papers in the kit and layered onto the bottom right of the photo. A yellow tab was tucked under the right of the photo and I stamped the date onto a little white tag from my stash stapled it into position.
The gorgeous puffy alphabet were used to create my title and I added a little blue puffy heart sticker between the words for added colour and contrast. My journaling was printed using my computer and favourite font 'traveling_typewriter' and I added a little line of machine stitching on either side. I stamped 'shine on' from the Willow stamp set at the bottom of the page to finish it off.
This layout was so fun to create! I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I put it together. I'll be back on the blog soon with more projects to share!
Welcome back to the Felicity Jane blog. I am here to share my second layout using the yummy Willow kit. I must say that the blue and white striped pattern paper from the Willow Kit has been my favorite this month. I am a sucker for stripes and when those stripes are mixed with spots, well the design just goes up a notch for sure! Check out my layout below to see just how cool the spots and stripes really are!
The puffy stickers and die cut shapes add a touch of texture without too much bulk. I added the diecut Happy word with some foam tape to add some depth and shadow as well.
I stapled one of the diecut tabs to the side of my photo and a piece of washi to hold down my photo. The Rose Mini clips adds the perfect accent to the photo.
I wanted to try something fun with the stamps for this layout so I rummaged through my ink pads to find colors that matched my photos. I then mix and matched the stamps and the inks to create a feature above and below the photo. This is definitely a technique I want to try again.
Thanks for popping by today. I'll be back soon to share another layout using the Willow kit. It is just so delish!
Hi friends! Mandy here with you today to share my first project using the super lovely 'Willow' kit! I love that this kit has a bit of an 'adventure/outdoors' theme running through it, and I thought that it would be perfect for creating a spread in my traveler's notebook!
I'm using this Felicity Jane TN insert to document photos from our cruise that we went on last year. I took this photo just before we sailed out of Sydney Harbour, and the view of the sun setting behind the Opera House was simply amazing!
The yellows and corals in the 'Willow' kit were absolutely perfect for this page!
I really like the multicolored geometric pattern paper in the kit, and decided to cut out the two smallest triangles from the paper and use them as a design element on the left hand side of my spread. The colours were perfect, and I love how the triangles really help to direct the viewer's eye towards the photo. It also acts as a base for my title. I couldn't go past the 'adventure' die cut piece as the title for this page.
I added my journaling at the bottom of the page, and adhered the little banner die cut that says 'beautiful' underneath my journaling. I finished the left hand side of the spread off with a few of the cute triangle puffy stickers.
I covered about two thirds of the right hand page with the grey and white patterned paper. I originally intended to use the yellow scallop pattern on the reverse side, but when I flipped it over, I just really loved how this grey pattern really seemed to ground the page. I did add a thin strip of the yellow paper, as well as one of the border strips, along the edge of the grey patterned paper. I like the extra detail that this adds. I matted my photo with the coral solid color paper, and then tucked a tag from the die cut shapes pack underneath. Lastly I added the little puffy sticker that says 'sunshine' on the bottom of my photo.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today. I'll be back later this week with another project to share with you using the beautiful 'Willow' kit!
Well friends, we are in the thick of spring here in California. One day it's sunny and warm, the next it's overcast and chilly. I am so excited to share this layout with you today because the Willow kit just brought all sorts of wonderful summer feelings with it and I can't get enough!
To me, summer means adventure time. Something about the warm weather, light clothing, and bright colors just makes me ready to have the most fun! As my crafty pal Andrea (also known as retrohipmama) always says, I am totally solar powered.
I used those fun alphas as a pop of color agains't my black, white, and yellow color scheme. This photo was from an adventure Cody and I went on a couple months ago, so it was perfect to pair with this kit!
Initially, I started out using the stencil from the kit because I want to use it for everything, but wasn't crazy about the direction I was headed, so I covered it with some fun layering. Y'all know I love me some layers!
I also used one of the stamps to create a little border along the layering. I love the finishing touch this ads!
I can't wait to share more with this gorgeous kit!
Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be back on the blog today to share my first project using the delightful Willow Kit. While everything in this kit is gorgeous, for this layout I decided to pick out all the little bits and pieces that were yellow, the pretty coral shades or black & white.
When I had all the pretty floral die cut pieces together in front of me these photos immediately came to mind. On this particular day a thoughtful neighbour knocked on our front door with some delicious cupcakes and the one Madison chose had a white flower on top which just happened to match the one in her hair! She thought it was so fun and of course we had to take some photos...it was so pretty!
I started my page by layering the black dot and yellow scallop patterned papers across the top along with the scallop edge of the solid color paper, then added some machine stitching.
After deciding on my photo placement, I tucked a tag under the side of the top photo and added two die cuts above the photo.
I then had fun layering the pretty floral die cuts to the left of the bottom photo and used some foam dots to add some dimension. A scallop die cut was adhered underneath my photo as well.
I always love the stamp sets that come with the Felicity Jane Kits and this month's set is so awesome! I used the 'happy' die cut and the 'happy day' stamp as part of my journaling. The arrow stamp went under the journaling and the 'living & loving' stamp next to the floral cluster. The tiny triple dot stamp was added in a few spots around the page too.
I really love how crisp and clean the images stamped out!
A black and white die cut heart and date stamp completed the layout. I've created a process video for this page too...
The Willow Kit is so fun to create with! I'll be back again soon with another project to share.
I love when I can use the gorgeous Felicity Jane kits for my boy layouts. It is easy to choose the more masculine colors, even though the are the softer hues to use on a boy layout or project. For my layout below I grabbed the light blue pattern paper from the Willow Solid Paper Add On to use as my background paper.
I found a fun cut file from the Silhouette store, cut it out on some white cardstock from my stash then used some of the pattern papers from the Willow kit to back each section.
I used one of the hearts from the Willow Die Cut pack to accentuate the Teepee. I attached it with some pop dots for added dimension. I then added some of the floral pieces and the adventure word all from the Die Cut pack to further embellish my layout.
I then grabbed some of the stamps from the Willow stamp set and added a semi circular border on the right side of the yellow circular shape.
I used the angular pattern paper from the Willow Kit as an underlay for my title. I love how the different shades of blue in then pattern paper makes the title pop.
Be sure to grab those boy photos and your favorite Felicity Jane kit and get scrapping!
