Jane says // a notebook layout

When I work on entries in my personal traveler’s notebook – they tend to include everything from quotes, humor and a bit of sass.

And the look on Jane’s face was perfect for this quote I’ve wanted to add to my notebook. She has a rebellious side!

Today on the Felicity Jane blog – I dive into how this layout came to be.

Felicity Jane // Outfit of the Day // Notebook Layout

Hello again sweet friends, last week I was on the Felicity Jane Blog with a quick and fun traveler’s notebook spread using the gorgeous stamp set and papers from the LONDON kit!

OOTD by Andrea Gray | @FelicityJane

When working on my personal notebook, I often just grab a photo that’s inspiring or has a story – but this time I specifically chose this photo because I was desperate to use the Outfit of the Day stamp! Let’s be honest, it’s perfect and it’s going to get a lot of use!

The other stamp I was itchin’ to use is the gorgeous flower. Its clean sketch look caught my eye right away!

I hope you enjoyed a little peek at my layout and take a few minutes to hop over to see more about this project! Until next time, friends! Thanks for hanging out with me!

Elle’s Studio // February Pocket Page

Hi again, Friends! It’s Andrea here with another pocket page! The February kit is full of colorful journaling tags, cute stamp sentiments and clean labels to document your everyday and I’m going to share some fun ways you can use them to accomplish that!

SUPPLIES: February 2017 Kit, January 2017 Kit, Puffy Heart Stickers, February Labels, Speech Bubble Stickers, Date Stickers

One of my favorite ways to capture in words what I’ve captured in photos is to make a list. Here I used a 4×6 journaling tag from the February Kit to list all the “things” that happened during the week. All of these items are documented in photos but maybe there’s no room on the photos to document in detail. I like adding the list in one spot to allow the reader to match the item to the photo. I then added the date range and week number sideways and a heart and die cut to the bottom to make it feel complete.

Memes are a great way to say what needs to be said when you’re just fresh out of your own words. The journaling tags are perfect for adding a meme while still showing off the colors or design of the card. ellesstudio_andreagray_week47_03

Another way to add stories to your small pocket inserts is to use a label. The Elle’s Studio Labels are perfect for quick little jots of text. Below I’ve used them for a quick story as well as a time stamp. I turned the yellow label vertically so that I didn’t cover up the design on the card and it still allowed me to write out all the words for my story.ellesstudio_andreagray_week47_04

The stamp sentiments are the perfect size to add little pieces to tell your story. One of my favorite things to do is to stamp directly over the design on the card like I did over the yellow stars. It makes it feel like it belongs there – like it’s part of the design. On the orange card, I used the white label space to stamp the word favorite from the February Stamp Set.ellesstudio_andreagray_week47_05

Elle’s Studio makes it so easy to document your days with fun and colorful supplies! Thank you for joining me today!

Elle’s Studio // January Pocket Page

Hey Crafty Babes, I seriously couldn’t be more stoked to share with you my very first post as a Design Team member for Elle’s Studio! And I couldn’t be more excited to share all the amazing kits and extras! Elle’s Studio products are so versatile and I’m just crazy in love with everything!

This obviously makes creating layouts and pockets super fun and easy!

For my first post, we’re going to dive into the January Kit.

ellesstudio-jan2017-kit

I start with photos and determine what colors I have to work with. In this case I had pink, red blue and yellow. So I grabbed anything with those colors and began to decide what I wanted where and how to spread all of the colors around evenly.ellesstudio_andreagray_week43pockets_1

Supplies: January Kit / Right Now Journaling Tags / Little Moments Journaling Tags / All My Heart Stamp / Malia Lowercase Alphabet Stamp / Date It Stamp / Monthly Wood Veneer Tabs

I love adding small embellishments to cards to give them just a bit of pop. Here I just added a simple chunk of text, a stamp and a star.
ellesstudio_andreagray_week43pockets_2

The striped FACTS card could have been used for journaling but I added a 2×2 photo with a small amount of journaling under it. And adding a little label on the YES card adds more depth to the story and color to the card!ellesstudio_andreagray_week43pockets_3

Sometimes all you need is a simple heart and other times there’s enough room to make your own stamped title to a card, like I did on the & card.

Thank you so much for being here today and I hope you’re inspired to mix up some colors and embellishments in your pockets or layouts!

See ya back again soon with more sneaks and projects from Elee’s Studio!
