Felicity Jane - I can & I will


Friends - I acutally crafted just for me, for a personal layout without having a due date or commitment! And it felt absolutely great!

I tried to make a small dent in my Felicty Jane stash and therefore I created this layout yesterday using the Felicity kit. It will function as a reminder to stay positive and will be hung on the wall beside my bed.


I can & I will by Laureen Wagener

DESCRIPTION:Trying to make a dent in my stash so I used my favorite Felicity Jane kit to date - Felicity. It is the September 2016 kit and I couldn't love the colors more! I really needed a positive reminder and so I decided to create a layout to be hung right next to my bed. Using a cut file made this page come together quit easily.

HOW TO: Chose your favorite cut file - I used one from The Cut Shoppe and modified it so it would be a Fold and Cut. If you use a Fold and Cut, fold over the shapes and use a bone folder to flatten the crease lines. Back the open spaces with lots of different patterned papers. Try to not ue the same pattern next to each other. Create lots of layers behind your picture - use patterned paper, vellum, tags or a doilie. Embellish around the picture to draw the focus on your picture. Stick down your title onto your picture if there is space left for it.

SUPPLIES: Felicity Kit: Felicity Jane, cardstock: American Crafts, adhesive:American Crafts;Cut file: The Cut Shoppe
