Crafting Favorites | June 2018

As I was cleaning up my desk the other day I realized that there’s a small handful of things that I’ve been reaching for pretty often lately, so I thought I’d share what they are in a monthly favorites video!

If I have enough favorites at the end of each month I just might make this a regular thing! :)

Products Mentioned:

> Absorber Shammy 

> Uniball Signo .38mm pen

> July 2018 Studio Calico Traveler’s Notebook

> Citrus Twist Kits die cuts (part of the July 2018 Documenter Kit)

> Summer by Banana Fish Studio Stamp Set

Some of my other crafting favorites can be found HERE!

Traveler’s Notebook Flipthrough | Felicity: 2-3 Months

E7EDE347-7068-4BBC-A031-0172DE7C9D3A.jpgHello, and happy Friday!

Today I’m so excited to share a flipthrough of a completed Traveler’s Notebook with you!

The Little Things Process Video (Citrus Twist Kits)

Well, I have one more fun announcement for this week . . . :)

Screen Shot 2018-06-30 at 1.13.35 PM.pngI’m so happy to announce that I’ve joined the amazing Citrus Twist Kits design team!! I’ve been a huge fan of Citrus Twist Kits for years now.  I used to scroll through their Instagram feed in awe of all of the amazing projects that their design team was putting together.  If you need some crafty inspiration, I totally recommend checking it out!  I’m super humbled that I get to share my own projects in the coming months, and I can’t wait!

Today I’m sharing a Traveler’s Notebook spread that I put together using the July Pocket Life Kit, Main Kit, and a couple of the new stamp sets that were released this month (Daily Routine and Conversation Starters).  All products can be found here.SZ_Proj2_Detail1.jpgSZ_Proj2.jpgI quickly fell in love with this die cut pack from Pink Fresh Studio, and that stamp set is definitely going to get a lot of use!

Below is a process video in case you’d like to see how it all came together!

Studio Calico Great Escape Release

Hi, Friends!

I’ve been trying to think of how I should start my first blog post after quite a break, but to be honest, I think that’s what has been holding me back from posting for a little while.

So instead of trying to figure out how to start this post, I’m just going to jump right in with a fun announcement and a couple of fun projects!

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve joined the Studio Calico creative team!  Honestly, this has been such a dream come true.  As a long-time subscriber to the SC kits and being a big time fan of ALL their products I’m so grateful to have an opportunity to work with a brand that I love so much!

Clicking the photo below will take you to the announcement on the Studio Calico website where you can click through to check out the other ladies that make up this awesome team!

I’m looking forward to sharing lots of projects in the coming months, but today I wanted to share my documenter layouts using this month’s Great Escape Documenter kit.  I’ll be back on Tuesday to share the projects I put together using the brand new Traveler’s Notebook kit (spoiler alert: the kit is AMAZING!).



The colors in this month’s kit are so bright and fresh, perfect for documenting all the summer details!
