Felicity Jane: Shopping

It's Tuesday, and that means I get to share a project using my Felicity Jane kits with you! Last week I documented a new back-to-school tradition and this week I'm scrapping a long-standing tradition.

I think scrapbooking traditions that happen every year can be hard, especially if you do the same thing each time. That's where I think it's a good idea to focus on different aspects of the tradition. Last year, I did a layout all about a particular shirt my daughter picked out that went along with a funny story (read it here and see it here). This year, I focused on the actual shopping. And I used photos that showed the close relationship that these girls have to each other, which I love.

I used mainly the "Here's the Scoop" August kit. The colors in that kit are divine and so are the papers!

I also used some of the Felicity Jane cut files now available in the Silhouette online store - how cool is that!? (Check it out, because they are super cute.)

I added a little bit of stamping, as I always do because I love stamping. And I love the stamps in this kit! Did you know you can get the stamps separately? You don't have to be a subscriber. :)

I wrote my journaling with a white pen on this little striped card from the cut-apart sheet. I haven't used a white pen in a long time and was happy to find that my Sakura Gelly Roll pen still worked perfectly!

If you want to watch the layout come together, you can watch the process video on my YouTube channel or right here:

What people are saying about Photo Triage: Vacation Photos...

I want to start by expressing my heartfelt gratitude for everyone who has signed up for my new class, Photo Triage: Vacation Photos. I have been amazed by the response! Thank you!

For those of you who are still on the fence, or are just curious, I wanted to share with you what people are saying...

Vicki "I bought it this weekend and watched all of the videos. They were great. I travel a lot but I have a pretty defined process for organizing and scrapbooking our trips. I bought the class just to get a different thought process. I would highly recommend this class. It is very well organzied and presented with high quality. I think I may adapt a few ideas!! Thanks Jen!"

Stephanie "I stayed up wayyy too late last night devouring the class notes and watching all of the videos (while scrapbooking, of course)! I absolutely loved this class--- the content and inspiration were worth way more than the small cost! Thank you!"

Berta"Loved all the videos and class materials. I have several trips to scrap, and this will really help getting the photos scrapped and the story told."

Tisa "Jen, I loved the class and already recommended it to a friend. I can't wait to get a journal so that I can be ready for my next vacation. You really have a gift for teaching, and I absolutely love all of your layouts...oh and I love your voice. You are so easy to listen to."

Jody Thompson"Loving the course so far! Your photos are beautiful!"

Collection Disconnection #5 - Easter Dream

I have enjoyed working with the Wonder collection from Crate Paper. I think one of the things that makes people either love or hate it is the cutesy little animals. Today I decided to run with the bunnies and I used them as inspiration for this layout.

I went to check on my daughter in bed on Easter eve and she was so hilarious and cute that I had to turn on the light and snap this photo! The colors of this kit are great for a bit of a twist on traditional Easter colors.

Like I said, I used the bunnies to go along with the Easter theme, but I also threw in a bunch of elements that said "dream" or "sweet dreams". They went with this layout perfectly.

The multi-colored, multi-patterned alphabet looks so cute!

The little alarm clock was just right too!

At the last minute, I decided to add these gold glitter circle stickers to look a bit like confetti down the side of the layout. I sprinkled in a few of the self-adhesive sequins too.

If you want to watch this layout come together, check out the process video on my YouTube channel or you can watch it below.
