Fun ways to use Stamps in your Pocket Pages // Felicity Jane

Happy April, Friends! I am excited to be on the Felicity Jane Blog to show you some fun ways to use the Felicity Jane stamps and using up kits in your stash.

Stamps are a wonderful way to add to your cards and layouts. Let’s take a look at a few fun ways you can! Head on over to the blog!

The smaller sentiments are perfect for adding to a label or tab from the cut apart sheets!  

I hope you enjoyed the details!

Until next time!

Using Pockets for a single event

Hey crafty babes, Andrea here again and it’s no surprise that I’m sharing a pocket page with you. But this time I want to inspire you to scrapbook a larger event that is separate from your weekly or monthly documenting.

I am featuring the March kit from Elle’s Studio that can be found here:

Let’s look at this layout here where my kiddo and I took a trip to IKEA for some shelves. I started with 3 photos that all had a similar colorway and I just knew I had to keep them together and tell just this story without including them in my normal weekly spread. Using the blue and yellow theme of the March kit I pulled out labels, cards, puffy alphas and die cuts that coordinated and made sense in the layout.

Supplies: March Monthly Kit | Sky Blue Puffy Alpha Stickers | March Labels | Vellum Sentiments | Puffy Star Stickers | Date Stickers – Blue & Green | Puffy Heart Stickers | Everyday Labels Puffy Stickers – Black

The fun and challenging part about this whole ‘documenting’ thing is knowing what to document. It can be difficult to think to the future and wonder what should a person know about this photo or person or layout. Thinking about that, I decided to use the puffy alphas to make a title of the name of the shelves. The KALLAX shelves are very popular among crafters because they fit our gigantic albums perfectly and I have so many of them in my home already. Having the name down will be a fun little nugget in years to come!

One thing we like to do when we go to IKEA is take pictures against the bright yellow wall. And since I had several that were useable, I decided to make a collage of them instead of keeping them separate. This is helpful in keeping your layout from feeling cluttered as well as it creates a striking visual! I added various labels that stuck out the side and layered some die cuts to add color.andreagray_ellesstudio_ikeatrip_photo2

 

The vellum circle is so perfect for this photo I took in the mirror section. andreagray_ellesstudio_ikeatrip_photo3

 

So now that I’ve acquired the shelves, of course I had to document how they came to life in my family room. The turquoises and yellows in the March kit work perfect with my colors in that room so it was a no-brainer!

Supplies: March Monthly Kit | Right Now Journaling Tags | TV Journaling Tags | Grow and Bloom Wood Veneer

This card from the Right Now Journaling Tags makes a perfect place to list some fun facts about the experience.andreagray_ellesstudio_kallax_photo1

 

Since this room is where we watch all of our TV (and by TV I mean YouTube and Netflix) I thought it would be perfect to use this 4×6 journaling tag from the TV mini collection. I just added a wood word and an acrylic heart for color.

This room really is my fav so I added a piece of washi and glued down the fun and clean acrylic word to this leftover piece of patterned paper from the Summer Days collection.

I couldn’t leave the layout without adding 2 of my favorite cards from the March kit – joy down in my heart and good times were perfect for this layout. I love when supplies help tell the story!

So there it is, friends! Permission to scrapbook larger events in pockets and not cram it into your weekly layout. I hope you take tons of photos so you can make a special layout (or two) too!

 

Until next month – Happy Scrapping!

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
