Every month there is this sheet of printable designs which is exclusively for all subscribers. What I love about it is that you can print them how often you want or need them. November's printable comes with some colored leaves that of course coordinate perfectly with the beautiful papers that come in the kit. I created this layout and used the leaves in the background.
I printed them a few times and then there was a lot of fussy cutting to do for me. When I did the layering for my photo I already tried to figure out where to place each of the leaves. I needed a little space around because I wanted to add some stitching to a few of the leaves. Also I tried to use as many of the papers as I could because it was so hard to decide.
I stamped one of the labels from the cut apart sheet with the "favorite moment" stamp and added some leaves here too. And I used a piece of the yellow hearted branding strip as a little label. I always keep the branding strips because they are beautiful and you could perfectly use them for layering and also for making embellishments like my little label. For the title I used a combination of the corrugated Thickers and the puffy word "love". And yes, I do love this photo of us so much!
Hi friends! Did you know that the December kits are available to purchase early? That's so you can get ahead on your December projects. The Cozy kit is gorgeous and full of aqua's, reds, and the black & white patterns that are a Felicity Jane staple.
The floral print and the birch trees make my heart skip a beat. *sigh* As always, the papers and embellishments are super versatile, so you could use them for just about anything!
This year, there is an amazing add-on kit called No Peeking which has everything you need for daily documenting in December.
It has a gorgeous 6 x 8 gold album, dark wood veneer numbers, and all of the papers in the main kit + 4 extra papers with more cut aparts to go in the page protectors included in the album. And that's just to name a few! :)
Be sure to check out these kits in the shop, and if you buy them both, you get a discount! We can't wait to see how you document December with these beautiful kits!
Apart from wanting to scrap this rather crazy shot of me, I really wanted to make a layout about life being messy and imperfect. And I love that the 'Savannah' kit makes the end result look so lovely - because isn't that life? Messy but lovely.
Don't you just adore that coral and gold spotted paper? My goodness, that was hard to cut into! I just wanted to frame it for my wall, as is. But I did cut into it and ended up making a cute little frame for my photo by wrapping it around some stiff board.
I bet you recognise which show my journalling's from..! It was so perfect for getting across how life is feeling at the moment: crazy, unpredictable, exciting (and yes: more than a little 'floopy'!)
The November Savannah kit is gorgeous. It has the cutest little deer flair in it that I thought I would hoard for Christmas layouts, but then I remembered I had some camping photos that would go with the deer - and the rest of the kit - perfectly!
My photos were really green heavy and even though there wasn't any green in the kit (well, there was an aqua-ish minty color), I was able to add some with a bit of stamping.
I created my title with a mixture of corrugated Thickers from the kit, some tile alphas from my stash and a little bit of brush script. I like how the corrugated kraft color of those Thickers lends to the nature feel of the photos.
I know I say it every time, but the stamps are awesome. The leaves are the perfect addition to this layout and there are always great phrases to stamp on the labels. #blessed

Hello, hello! I just love November! I think sometimes it's a bit of an overlooked month with Halloween and Christmas nearby but I really love this month. It's full of sweaters, hot cocoa, and falling leaves. What's not to love about that? Plus we get the opportunity to think about all of the things we're truly thankful for.
When I got this months kit, I was immediately drawn to the hand lettering phrase. I'm a sucker for embellishments like this and I knew I wanted to use it right away!
I ultimately came up with this simple but beautiful page. Sometimes it's nice to have a very simple layout with lots of white space. Don't get me wrong, I love a page with a lot of fun colors and different embellishments, but every once in a while, I like to make a super simple page.
Did you notice that I used a few different embellishments from past kits? That's the great thing about Felicity Jane kits, they're all so beautifully compatible!! They work flawlessly together to create stunning scrapbook pages.
And I must say, the colors are always so uniquely fresh. Never would I have chosen to put them together, but when it's all said and done I absolutely love, love, love it!!
Well I'm super thankful for this little lady in my life and I'm super thankful to be here posting on this blog! Hope you all are having a very thankful November!!
I love that the Felicity Jane kits comes with a sheet of cut apart cards that you can use in your pocket page albums. Since I am a traditional scrapbooker and a pocket page scrapbooker, I really feel like I get the most bang for my buck with these kits.
Here is a look at my week 40
I like that this spread has a calm feeling to it because of all the white space, but because of the small pops of color it still feels fresh and fun. I ended up using a combination of the cut apart 3x4 cards and also some of the patterned paper.
For one of the pockets I took several of the different labels and banners and lined them up on a plain white card. I added some journaling to a couple of the labels, and stamped on a couple others. I really love how it turned out.
Another one of my favorite cards is the one I made using a stamp set from a previous kit. It's a super simple card that has a "reasons to smile" stamped image at the top and then several stamped lines. I quickly wrote down a few things that are making me smile right now. I love documenting little bits of life like this.
You can see how this whole spread came together in the video below.
Drawing inspiration from the InkWell Press planners' Mission Boards, I have created mission boards of my own for the past several months. It's a great place to stop and focus about goals in the month ahead. The great thing about making your own, is you can adjust to as many or few things you want to prioritize. I usually stop and think about my "have to's" and any goals I have surrounding those, then I like to give thought to some areas that are "want to's" that may not be getting as much attention as I'd currently like.
When I receive my kit each month, I love to sit down and cut out the sticker sheet. As I'm doing this, ideas start to flow with little projects I can create.
I grabbed a scratch piece of paper and started scribbling a framework for a mission board. I thought I'd keep the hand-drawn black outlined boxes, but the end result was getting busier than I initially wanted. I decided trimming pieces of the soft pink patterned paper would better house my goals/ideas for November and would keep the page a little more cohesive.
I love flipping back to this mission board throughout the month for inspiration and to stay focused on my priorities. This kit is a fabulous resource for both my scrapbooking projects AND my planner. Love that!
Fall is the season that really inspires me and I always try and get good photos of my boys. This particular photo session with them was full of gems, one of which I am sharing with you today. For my journaling I wrote a sort of love letter to them about weather seasons changing, as well as the season of their ages.
The colors in this kit are just completley swoon worthy and I tried to layer as many of the papers as I could. I used the floral tag from the sticker cut apart sheet, and I also turned the yellow "hello" from the cut apart paper into a tag. I wanted to jazz it up a bit so I took a hole re-enforcer (just from the office supply store) and stamped on it with the little dot stamp, a tiny detail that packs a punch.
I really love the arrows in this kit and I used them to draw the eye towards the photo. I thought the hashtag words were perfect for my journaling and that flair! Not only do I love the little fawn, but since all of my elements in that cluster are pointing towards the photo, it balances the grouping by facing outwards.
Here's another look at the finished page...
Kits are shipping out early next week! Can't wait to see what you create!
