May Guest Designer | Jen Schow

Hey there! It's Jen Schow and I am super excited to be the guest designer for the very first Fairytale Club kit, Girly and Strong! I started scrapbooking when I was twelve and never looked back. I love pretty papers, lots of florals, and telling stories that matter. Now you can find me blogging (sometimes) at and can find links to where I am on the internets from there. ;)

So. Now to the pretty papers and stories! I love the theme this month and find myself wanting to tell lots of stories about strength and courage and bravery lately. I chose a photo of my daughter and I right before a tough time.

I decided to use just the papers included in the personal size planner kit and I love that they don't come with the holes punched because they work great on layouts! 

I used the page with the quote as a feature and it fits perfectly with my story. Love that. Each planner page is double sided, so I flipped another one over and used it as a layer behind my photo.


I used a combination of die cuts and stickers for my "Brave" title. Love, love the gold accents on them!

I scattered some hearts and sequins diagonally on the page + some gold mist to finish it off! I love how simply this layout came together using the planner pages. You can see the process in my video below!

Thanks so much for letting me share and I'll be back a few more times this month with additional projects!
