Felicity Jane Creative Team September Projects

FJ Creative Team Announcement.jpgI feel like this year has already been filled with so many “pinch me” moments, and honestly, this is another one!  After being a longtime fan and consumer of the Felicity Jane products, I’m so happy to have the opportunity to work on the creative team!  It’s seriously a dream come true for me and I couldn’t be more excited!

SZ_4.jpgToday I have 2 projects to share with you, which both use the September Lola kit.  The first is this TN layout, which was shared on the Felicity Jane blog last Thursday.  You can check out all of the details (including a process video) in the blog post here.

SZ_1.jpgThe second project is a pocket page layout using some of the journaling cards and other embellishments from the Lola kit.  If you’d like to see how this project came together, there is a process video for this one as well, below:

I can’t wait to share more projects in the coming months, but in the meantime if you’re looking for more inspiration I’m including links to the social media accounts for the other very talented ladies on this team below:

Project Life Process | Citrus Twist Kits August 2018

CTK_Proj3.jpgHi friends!

Today I’m back with a pocket page spread using the latest Pocket Life kit from Citrus Twist Kits.  I honestly couldn’t believe how many embellishments were included in this month’s kit (from cork and chipboard to die cuts and fabric pieces!)  There was definitely a lot of great stuff to play around with! :)  If you’d like to see how this page came together, there’s a process video at the end of this post.

Project Life Process | July Here + Now

SZ_Doc1_Detail2.jpgHappy Monday!  I hope your week is off to a great start!

Today I have a project life process video to share using Studio Calico’s latest release of the August 2018 Golden Hour kits. These kits are so gorgeous that I wanted to try to find a way to use as much product as possible on my one page.  I think I succeeded on that front!

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!

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!

GIVE Story Kit Project Life Layouts

Wow friends, it feels like forever since I’ve shared a project life spread here on the blog.  As I’ve mentioned previously, this year I decided to take a much more relaxed approach to this project.  Instead of completing weekly spreads like I did in 2016, I really didn’t have a plan for this year.  I decided to simply work on pages when I felt inspired to do so.  While I sometimes feel a bit sad that I have a bunch of photos and memories from this year still on my phone and not printed or documented in any way, I still feel like I made the right choice for myself this year. Next year is a different story though, and I’ll talk more about how I plan to document 2018 next month.  IMG_0752

November was a fantastic month.  I can see why people call the second trimester of pregnancy the “honeymoon period.”  I was finally able to get back into the rhythm of doing things again (including crafting) and it felt amazing.

IMG_0753IMG_0758IMG_0759For the layouts above I used the November Digital Story Kit “GIVE” by Ali Edwards.  This kit is perfect for documenting Thanksgiving traditions, and also for documenting gratitude in general, and so much more.

Although I may add more to my 2017 Project Life album eventually, these will likely be the last layouts I put together for this year.  I have a feeling that December Daily is going to be the only crafty project that gets my attention in December, but that’s okay with me!

Maroon Bells using October AE Digitals

I’m still determined to get some photos from our latest roadtrip to Aspen, CO up on the blog, but until then I have this layout to share! The Maroon Bells and surrounding area is seriously one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been to in my life.  Truly, photos can’t do this place justice.  I can’t speak to what this area looks like year-round, but I can vouch for the last couple weeks in September being gorgeous.

September Hybrid Layouts

Happy Friday, friends!  And more importantly, happy almost Fall Season!  Soon that fresh, crisp air and pumpkin pie will be here and I can hardly wait.

In the last couple of days, the temperature in SoCal has started to shift, and something about the taste of seasonal change has reinvigorated my crafty spirit! So, with that, I was excited to jump into the projects I’m sharing today, #1 because the September Digital Kit by Ali Edwards is beautiful, and #2 because documenting this last quarter of the year is always my favorite and these projects mark the beginning of that process.


First up I put together this super simple page for my Summer Traveler’s notebook (TN).  This was my first time doing a full page photo in my notebook, and now I’m obsessed!  I will definitely be using this format over and over in notebooks from now on. Also, just a tip if you’re afraid of the edges of your photo coming up on your notebook: use red line tape.  This tape is super strong. You have to be extra careful placing your photo, but once it’s down, it’s down for good!

SZayas_September2017Digitals_FullLayoutProj1.jpgMy next project was an insert for my 6″ x 8″ binder.  This photo was taken last year because let’s be honest, its still waaaay too hot for boots and jackets, but I wanted to put together something to celebrate the coming season, and this felt like the perfect way to do that. SZayas_September2017Digitals_DetailProj1.jpgOkay, now I’m definitely ready for a chai latte :)

Summertime Hybrid Layouts


Hi Friends!

Today I’m back to share a couple of layouts I put together using the June digital releases from Ali Edwards.  I absolutely loved working with this month’s kit, which was filled with fun summertime details as well as some Father’s Day elements.

SZayas_JuneDigitalKit_Detail_Project1.jpgFirst up is the layout I put together for Father’s Day.  When I first saw the card that said “So Thankful For You Dad.  Super Love You” I knew I had to do something special.  While I wanted to have a layout for myself, I also wanted to find a way to turn this into a card that I could give to my Dad.  In order to do that I took the “Dad Stories” 3″ x 8″ card and adhered a photo to the back to make it into a bookmark.  It was the perfect alternative to a card and I love that its handmade and extra special.  I love that my dad and I will both have a copy of the journaling and this great photo.

SZayas_JuneDigitalKit_FullLayoutProj.jpgNext up is a layout I put together using a lot of the summer-themed elements from the kit.  The colors worked perfectly with the photos from this celebratory weekend in May so I really didn’t have to do anything other than print everything out.  Love when that happens!SZayas_JuneDigitalKit_Detail_Proj2.jpg

I’m looking forward to making many more summer-themed layouts in the next couple of months!
