Felicity Jane-Week 14

Hello friends!  I am so happy to be guest designing for Felicity Jane this month with the beautiful Caroline kit.  When I saw the colors in the kit and the beautiful journal cards I knew that I wanted to use them to document week 14 in my Project Life album.  The colors are the perfect match for our outdoor adventure photos along with the everyday photos.

One of my favorite things about the FJ products is their versatility.  As a mom of all boys it is often hard for me to find kits that I can customize to meet our familiy’s memory keeping needs.  With FJ I can always count on classic designs and colors that easily coordinate with all my photos.

I always start my spread with a title card. Every year I choose the same weekly title card to use all year long to keep consistancy through the whole album.  I added the date to the title card with some mint ink that coordinated perfectly with the kit colors.  I also added a puffy heart between the dates to bring in a little more color.

I spread the journal cards evenly across my spread to find balance in both color and design.

To embellish the 4×6 cards in the spread I used the stamp set and stamped sentiments in satz on ink.  Again, to repeat the colors in the spread and bring added attention to the stamping I added the puffy arrows.

For the “Smile” filler card I punched out the sentiment from the sticker sheet with a 1″ inch circle punch and then lifted it up with a few foam squares.

I loved that I could use the stamp set with a “best friends” theme and use it in a new way.  All you have to do is step outside the box and think about how these sentiments could apply to different situations.

I love the simple beauty of this card next to the flowers.  So pretty!

I needed one more spot for journaling so I simply sent the photo through my typewriter and added it right to the front of the photo.

I just adore the final spread!  It was such a pleasure working with the beautiful Caroline kit this month!  I adore how the colors in the kit play perfectly with my photos and how I was able to step outside the box and use a “best friends” kit to tell our family’s everyday and adventure stories.

Thanks so much for having me!  Now go out and make some memories to document!

Hugs,

Candace
