Did you know that each month, Felicity Jane subscribers get exclusive printables? They are the perfect little addition to the kit and I really love the printables this month in particular.
The little flowers are my favorite part of the printables. They are perfect for clustering and match that *gorgeous* floral paper.
I used the polka-dot stencil to add some texture and interest to the background by tracing messy circles and filling them in with some watered-down spray mist.
This week I had so much fun decorating my planner with "That One Day" Kit.
I mainly used the cut apart sticker sheet as well as the cute flowers that were included in the special subscriber email from this month.
I have been asked many times why do I bother to decorate my planner when I'm just going to get rid of it at the end of the year. Other than the reason that it is fun and looks cute, those comments really did bother me. I recently came up with a perfect solution and started adding photos to my planner. It is so fun to look back and see what I did on a specific day and at the end of the year I will have a planner full of memories!
How do you like to use your planner?
Do you ever have those days where things just feel a bit magical? Where real life gets put on hold and you suddenly see the beauty in everyday things and ordinary moments? This day was one of those.
It was an ordinary Sunday trip to the park, but the autumn sunshine just made everything look so beautiful. After a crazy week, we were all determined to let our hair down and just enjoy being together. And the gentle shades of October's 'That One Day' kit were perfect for capturing that feel.
I've made a little video so you can see how this one came together - really hope you enjoy it.
Don't you just love the amazing fall weather that's been gracing us with it's presence lately? I'm not sure what it's like where you're from, but up here in Alaska fall is almost over... we may be be moving into winter weather already but my scrapbooking doesn't have to! I'm more than happy to keep on making fall themed layouts like this one!
I must say the first thing my eyes darted to when I first saw this kit was the wood veneer letters.... seriously.. they're just the most gorgeous thing! I love the font, the size and the phrase! I knew it had to be one of the very first things I used!
It then served as my prompt for this page, I wanted to capture a the daily details of my life so I added this photo from one of my favorite restaurants here in Alaska.
Then I used a vellum envelope to hold the journaling I did on one of the 3x4 cards from the cut apart sheets, they're the perfect place for jotting down your thoughts!
I threw in a few embellishments from past kits like this foam love phrase and that oh so pretty kraft, gold foil polka dot paper!
Don't you just looveeeeee those letters?? I know I do!! Top it off with a sequin and it's perfect!
So, what's you're favorite part of this months kit??
I don't know about you, but this time of year just makes me want to celebrate the beauty of nature. Our house is currently full of baskets of coloured leaves that Kitty has brought home and their beautiful intricate shapes very much inspired this layout.
This month's 'That One Day' kit has the most beautiful colour palette... I especially adore the graphic prints that are always a feature of this amazing kit.
I love layering up different textures... this ric-rac was perfect to have peeking out of my cluster of leaves.
And those golden glitter 'Jen' Thickers and the delicate vellum feathers... how breathtakingly beautiful are they? Much like this glorious time of year.
Now to get back out in that golden sunshine and kick up some leaves...
The day that I found out I was having a little girl was the day that I got excited about dance class. There is just nothing sweeter than seeing a little girl dressed up in a pink leotard and ballet shoes. Taking London to her first dance class was beyond exciting. She had so much fun and looked so cute. I couldn't wait to scrapbook this story.
I used October's "that one day" kit on this layout. It has so many great papers and embellishments, so everything came together pretty quick.
The first thing I did was pick what papers I wanted to layer behind my photo. Of course I went with the pink and white stripe, but I also picked a white with black triangle pattern, and a yellow and white stripe. I really like the way all three of these paper look together.
Next I worked on an embellishment cluster that I put to the left of my photo. Felicity Jane kits always have the best florals, and this months is one of my favorites. I love how girly it makes this layout.
For my title I went back and forth between the gold letters that came in this months kit or the black ones that came in last months kit. I obviously chose the black, but I think either one of them would have looked great.
I added a couple branding strips, and some more of the cute pink paper down the left side of my of my layout. I finished this layout by adding a little journaling just to the right of my photo.
You can see how this whole layout came together in the video below.
Felicity Jane always has one of those gorgeous floral papers in each kit and I decided to create a layout with a wide stripe of this months flowers. I thought this would be perfect for the selfie of us taken a few years ago on a flower show. We had such a wonderful day there and those floral paper reminds me of it.
I really don't use 3x4 cards very often as I don't do project life but the sheet of journaling cards that came with the kit is so beautiful that I wanted to use it immediatly. I decided to take the "So happy together" as a title card for my layout.
I wrote the journaling with my good old typewriter on the bold multicolor striped paper and I used the different colors to create something like a journaling stripe ombré look.
I used a few of the cut apart pieces from the kit and also one of the manufacturer stripes to embellish my layout. I keep those stripes from the Felicity Jane everytime because they are just too cute to be thrown away. I also like to use them to decorate my planner.
Now I can't wait my October "That One Day" kit to arrive very soon! Who's with me?
