Next Installment

More calendar pages for my 2016 calendar (see previous post for more detail). Still working with the Felicity Jane kits, they are so awesome. I love that many of the papers from different kits will work together, they often have a black and white added in. The first page is from the Just Sayin' kit (sold out now). I couldn't resist using the small dot for the background although I've had to try to find substitute papers for my girls since there is only one in a kit. I added a few puffy stickers from Close to My Heart, Thickers from American Crafts, and a simple rub on (she is). Loved the acrylic heart in this kit and the tissue confetti. Keep in mind that normally I would add a lot more to these pages but need to keep the reproduction down to 30 minutes - no more. It's a challenge to make them cute while still keeping them super SIMPLE.
I loved the way the Thickers added a sparkle to the page.
At the bottom are two small washi tape strips with the glittered puffy bow (CTMH).
Below is a closeup of that cute acrylic heart. I love the colors Jeana chose for this kit they all compliment one another perfectly.

The next page installment is a simple classic "L" layout, this one is on plain white cardstock with just a touch of Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine to keep the background from being too boring. The fun acrylic letters in this kit really helped it pop. Added a few Coral Reef Sequins and Smoothie bakers twine from Close to My Heart. The rest of the stuff is from Felicity Jane (sigh - I love her designs).
Also love her stamps they are so usable, not so stylized that they will only work with some things yet not at all boring, notice the cute "a day to" stamp - love it! Here's a close up of those fun letters.
This was mostly made with the "Best Day" kit - also sold out - guess you can see why.  Because I work full time as a scrapbook artist sometimes I'm not very motivated to scrapbook at home, but these kits really get me excited - they rock!
