Felicity Jane Haul + TN Spreads

Hello!

I recently purchased a few goodies from Felicity Jane on during their birthday sale. I was in need of some new traveler’s notebooks for my scrapbooking, so I picked a few up. I also picked up a few embellishments, because, why not? πŸ˜…

I have already dug into one of my new tn’s and made a few spreads. I have loved picking out quotes and pairing them with a photo lately. A fun, simple way to document these days.

Thanks for reading!

Planner Haul!

Hello!! I’ve got a fun post for you today! Here’s my new planner accessory haul.Β  πŸ™‚

I really don’t shop like I did a few years ago, because, well, I have a lot of stuff already. But once in a while, it’s a fun treat.

First up is my May Planner Society kit. It’s my one year anniversary this month of receiving these kits! I simply love them. I consider canceling every month, but my mom always convinces me to stick with it.Β  πŸ™‚

I love this month’s theme and color scheme. Pretty pinks and greens. So summery.May Planner Society Kit | JM Creates BlogIMG_4861I love all the floral details. And those cacti tracker stamps- love!!May Planner Society Kit | JM Creates BlogMore doilies this month.

I totally caved when I saw the TN’s were on sale (in the slightly imperfect section– although mine looked totally perfect). I also picked up 4 TN inserts and some washi.Planner Haul! | JM Creates BlogFelicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogFelicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogI decided to go with a black & white theme with this notebook. I think I’m going to love it!IMG_4887Felicity Jane Haul | JM Creates BlogMy final purchase this week was from The Aloha Nurse on Etsy. The more I see Simply Gilded’s washi, the more I want some! I really, really love the look of her subscription boxes, but as they sell out quickly and do not quite fit into my budget at the moment, I did the next best thing: I bought some samples on Etsy.

I thought The Aloha Nurse’s prices were fair and the selection was great. I got some of the carousel washi, the hummingbird, the butterflies, and the bow washi tape. It’s all soo cute. It was packaged really cute too. I can’t wait to use them on my weekly spreads soon.Planner Haul! | JM Creates BlogThat’s it for now. Have you had your own haul lately?heart_jen

Scrapbook Layout | Sisters

Hello!! Happy Sunday!

Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite new layouts I’ve made this year. When I got the papers from Felicity Jane’s June kit, I thought of some old black & white photos that might work with it, particularly the floral paper. Then, I found this photo of my grandma & her sister, and it clicked! I love the photo, and how it works so well with the papers I put together. I like to think if they would have scrapped this picture when it was taken in the 40’s, it might have turned out something like this.  πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Layout | Bloom On

Hello! Happy Sunday to you. As I sit here typing, it’s snowing/hailing outside. Yep, and it’s the middle of May. Not cool. It’s only for today, so I’m holding onto that thought.

I wanted to share a spring layout today. I am still busy documenting the loveliness that was our cherry tree. It’s all green now, but the photos I took will hold me over until next spring!  πŸ™‚

I used Felicity Jane and Heidi Swapp papers on my layout. They are pure bliss to me!

Hello! Happy Tuesday!!

I hope your Easter weekend was relaxing. I was in the creative mode and got a lot of scrapbooking done! I made about 20 layouts, and I can’t wait to share!

This one was one of my favorites. I bought some Felicity Jane papers recently because they are all so beautiful! I fussy cut the floral paper for this layout. The layout needed another embellishment, so I went into my stash and I found this fabric dress form from Prima…circa 2009 I think. I had bought two of them back in the day, and only ever used one. I decided this layout needed it, so here it is!

I have been thinking a lot about what the words of my title mean as they relate to my life. I think at least at some point in our lives, we fight the urge to bloom where we are. It’s easier to think the grass is greener on the other side. For me, it’s time to not run away and just be. Sometimes you are planted somewhere for a reason.
