Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi Freckled Fans! Welcome to the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! You probably came from Emily’s Blog. But if you stumbled across this blog make sure you go to the Altenew Scrapbook Blog to start this crafty journey!
I’m Jennie, one of the design team members from the Freckled Fawn. Our friends from Altenew asked us to share a project inspired by our favorite crafters. I love Dearly Dee and Kelly Purkey. They inspire me to use my stamps on photos. Since we are playing with Altenew goodies is the perfect moment to be inspired by them!

I LOVE alphabet stamps! The Modern Deco Alpha Stamp Set is one of my favorite sets ever! They are really cool. The set has numbers AND they work perfect on photos! My title card is incredibly simple but I love it so much! I just used one of the papers from the Reflections 6×6 Paper Pad and the Modern Deco Alpha Stamp Set. I also added a few stickers and the October Plaid Washi. I used the Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to glue the Words Wood Chips on the left card.  I colored the wood veneers black so they would pop using the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker.

I used the Invisible Alpha Stamp Set in 2 of the cards. For the photo I stamped in white first and then black. I love this effect! I also used the stamp set My Family which is perfect for Project Life and it fits my style perfectly! I also added Heart & Star Puffy Icon Stickers.

For the 4×6 cards in this spread I used the Reflections 6×6 Paper Pad and the 3×4 cards are Freckled Fawn Journaling Cards. I used a bunch of White Puffy Hearts and Plus Signs around this layout and I staples them which is a genius idea I got from Jen Schow. I also used the Crafty Friends Stamp Set which is perfect to document my crafty adventures! My daughters are also very creative so it’s perfect for adding quotes and phrases on photos.

For “My Messy Home” I started by stamping “messy” with the  Modern Deco Alpha Stamp Set. I inked part the “MY” of the stamps from My Family to stamp on the top and then I cleaned it and just stamped  “home”. To fill my Currently card I used a Tombow TwinTone from the Pastel Set.

We hope you enjoyed this post! Keep on hopping!

Solar Eclipse Layout by Megan

Hello, lovelies! It’s Megan, and I have a fun idea for using the September kit!

My family of science nerds was so excited about the solar eclipse! We drove an hour and a half in an minitrip to Marshall, MO to a spot our friend found so we would be in the path of totality for the eclipse a little longer–about two minutes and thirty seconds! It was an amazing experience for all of us.

I was inspired to make a spread about the eclipse by the Freckled Fawn September 2017 Kit. The lunar vellum stickers and silver foil epoxy astronomy stickers were perfect!

I decided to combine a traditional page and a pocket page for this spread so that I could include a large print of my family checking out the eclipse together!

I really wanted the photo to stand out, so I just stuck to the photo, a title, and eclipse glasses (which I stapled on) for this page.

For the title, I cut the lunar vellum sticker so it could frame both sides, framed either side of the words with a moon foil epoxy sticker and added a star in the middle. I used black puffy script stickers for the letters. I made sure to add the epoxy stickers last, as the other items are more repositionable.

For the pocket page, I included photos of my kids checking in on the eclipse, my baby niece in her stroller, a photo of the corona, and a screenshot of the app we used, Solar Eclipse Timer to countdown to specific events during the eclipse.

I used a variety of cards from my stash that related to stars, counting down, and journaling cards that fit into my color scheme.

I kept the embellishing on the pocket page minimal, but included a few things, like a vellum strip to cover up words on a card that weren’t applicable, an older label sticker for journaling, and a puffy star sticker in the corner.

I also combined a vellum sticker that looked a little like the sun and a cloud epoxy sticker to go with my journaling about the clouds clearing up just in time for totality!

Fellow Americans, were you able to see a full or partial eclipse? International friends, have you been able to see one in your lifetime? Any other ideas for fun ways to use these celestial icons?

XO,
Megan

Extracurricular Schedule Layout by Megan

Extracurricular Schedule Layout

Hello lovelies! Megan Megan here to share a page I made to document my family’s extracurricular routine right now!

When I opened up the Freckled Fawn September 2017 Kit and saw the days of the week wood veneer, I knew exactly what I wanted to make for my first project with the kit. My kids have something going on almost every day of the week (three kids in dance, two in soccer, one in robotics!), so I thought a spread showing what we’re doing each day right now would be perfect.

I decided to make a double page spread so that I could include a series of photos showing each activity across the page. Because I wanted patterned paper backgrounds but don’t have many duplicates, a design where two 12×12 papers were cut in half and divided in the design worked well–I just adhered them to cardstock.

I printed off 3×3 circle photos of the different activities so I could line them up according to the day of the week, then used the veneer to label them.

Using a strip of washi tape from the kit above the center of the page helped add more visual interest and made it so the page wasn’t as neatly divided into two equal halves. Giving more space to the frame paper with journaling, since there is more visual weight on the top, helped to balance the layout!

I love the black and white theme of the kit, so I kept it going by changing the color of the wood veneer to black. I just rubbed each one onto a black ink pad.

To fit all of the days of the week onto the two page spread, I made sure to stagger them and to rotate some.

A glitter enamel triangle was a great way to show where my regular journaling began. I used a puffy icon sticker to fill one frame and also used them as a “frame” for the page by placing one by the first photo in the series and another by the last.

I used black puffy script stickers to point to which frames were explaining what’s going on in the photos. I added the letter that the day of the week starts with, then included what activity / activities are on that day.

Inking around the edge of the photos gave them a little extra pop against the page and helped to hide my irregular hand cutting.

I’m so glad I captured our extracurricular routine right now! It’s a big part of my life currently and it will all switch around again in a few short weeks.

Are you or your kids involved in weekly classes or activities? How do you document your routine?

XO,
Megan

Explore PHX by Jennie

Hi Everyone! This is Jennie! I am in LOVE with Black & White! The September Oh Deer Me Kit got me hooked! I grabbed a bunch of black and white things from my freckled stash! I had so much color in these pages that I had no idea what to do with them. The black and white worked perfect! 

When I decide on a color scheme I start with washi tape. It’s the easiest thing to pick for me.

Freckled Fawn is very talented with fonts! I love to mix them and layer them! I like to use small fonts like the Black Puffy Script Alpha Stickers on photos.

This is the only color embellishment I grabbed because I wanted really big letters and the green works with the photos. Underneath I layered washiWhite Foam Words Stickers and Chipboard Words.  I like to staple some embellishments to add detail and texture.

The Foam Words also come in black! I used the Black & White Vellum Alphas to underline the word amazing!

In this filler card I wanted to play with words and fonts. You can find the ampersand in the Large Acetate Numbers. I used the Tombow MONO Twin Permanent Marker to color the  Days of the Week Wood Veneers.

The Glitter Enamel Triangles are perfect little accents for pages and photos.

I love square photos, I need to include them in my album more often!

I hope you enjoyed these pages! Take up the challenge to only use black and white supplies and let us know how it goes!

XO,
Jennie

Week in the Life Layout by Niki

Hi Fanatics! Niki back again today with something a little different and a bit out of my comfort zone.

I’ve always been intrigued by the Week in the Life project by Ali Edwards, but somehow I always end up failing this project and to date have never once completed it despite starting it several times. As soon as I saw the Days of the Week Wood Chips in the September Embellishment kit I was immediately inspired to attempt a Week in the Life layout…it proved quite challenging getting a whole week onto one 12×12 layout but I absolutely managed it and am in love with the result!

I have put together a process video for you to view below if you would like to see how it came together.

 

Watch on YouTube

I was also inspired by one of the vellum sticker strips which was a black scalloped line with hearts in each of the scallops. I re-created this as a cut file (my hearts are a little on the large size but I’m ok with that) and cut it three times using my cutting machine. I positioned these onto the layout and then needed four more lines which I added with my sewing machine. At this point I had seven lines, each representing a day of the week.

I embellished the stitched lines with the vellum sticker strips.

I added the wood chip weekday words on each of the lines and then printed some small square photos. I aimed for one photo for each day but ended up with a few extras – this is a lot to squeeze onto one layout! I arranged them in the right places and stuck them in place and then wrote in my journaling. I actually ended up with ten photos on this layout!

I added a title using the black puffy alpha stickers and then added embellishments to any gaps. I added in vellum stickers, enamel triangles, the large enamel camera, cloud and star stickers, puffy stickers and some clear arrow stickers.

I absolutely love the result and even though this layout was well out of my comfort zone with so many photos and all that journaling, I thoroughly enjoyed making it and am thrilled that I have finally completed a Week in the Life project – albeit a very scaled down version, but it works for me and that’s what matters.

Thank you so much for joining me today – how will you use your Days of the Week Wood Chips?

Happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki

October Memory Planning by Kim

Howdy Freckled Fawners!  Kim here to talk about this wonderful October kit and my 1st project using a ring bound memory planner.

On the right hand side I wanted use the new 8.5 x 11 papers and the journal cards to the max.  After placing my horizontal picture on a vertical card, I started playing around with semi-circles and layered them concentrating on the right and center of the page.

I placed the October wood veneer within the rings and wrapped a couple of those fantastic golden leaves around it to stick up as tabs.

My center divider was made from the new papers as well.  I punched a few larger wholes on the edge so I could tie some twine.  Those alphas just made my day!

The picture on the left is actually 3×4.  I just scored it down the center and wrapped it around the divider.

There is Tyler in his suit for homecoming on the facing divider side.

The journal card that matches the paper was ripped at the top for texture and a  stripped label sticker was added and wrapped just like the picture….

So it would be placed over part of Jack’s Homecoming dance picture.

Another vertical journal card, trimmed this time, was added as a base for Eli’s sliding picture.  And instead of adding journaling to the chipboard piece, I added it below it.

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope this inspires you to use your October kit creatively!

XO,
Kim

Live Simply Layout by Niki

Hey! Niki here today with another layout using the black and white September Embellishment kit. I have loved working with this kit so far as it is fab for almost anything. Today’s layout of mine is another one with lots of colour but as all the embellishments were black and white, I didn’t have to worry about colour matching with the papers I chose.

I loved the cloud stickers that came in the kit and cut a large cut file that featured a cloud and a lovely phrase. I cut this in black and put it onto a white cardstock background with a multi-coloured pattern around the edge. The white background was a little too white so I decided to add some colour using inks and the packaging technique.

You can check out how I did the background and watch how the whole layout came together in my process video below.

Watch on YouTube

Once I had done the background I put my black cut file back in place, added my photo and added machine stitching through all the words. I then added lots of lovely embellishments from the September Embellishment kit, including cloud and star stickers, puffy stickers, enamel triangles, a large enamel camera, vellum stickers as well as some clear arrow stickers left over from August’s Embellishment kit.

I finished off by adding some other embellishments from my stash and handwrote in my journaling to the bottom right of the layout.

Thank you so much for popping over to see my layout, happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki
