Everyone Has a Home Layout by Jen

Hey friends! It’s Jen here to share a layout + process video using the glorious November embellishment kit. Are you all loving the new papers and journaling cards as much as I am?!

The minute I saw that house paper, I knew I wanted to fussy cut a bunch of them. Yeah, I’m a little bit crazy. But sometimes crazy pays off!

I lightly adhered the houses in a circle mixing in a few of the puffy stickers along the way. Then I stitched through them so I could pull them up and give them a bit of dimension. I used some of the patterned journaling cards for some layers behind my photo and outlined them with a fine-tipped black pen so they kind of matched the background paper and the houses.

The layout is a story about how my daughter is constantly organizing and reorganizing her stuff. Every thing has it’s place. So I decided to title the page “Every One Has a Home” and that helped tie in the houses. I encourage you to think outside the box with these adorable houses! I added a rubber house and some enamel dots to finish off my title cluster.

Finally I added a chipboard phrase and the journaling below the photo and sprinkled in a few more enamel dots and the date. You can see how it all came together in the process video:

(technical difficulties! video coming soon!)

Have you ever tried creating a layout with a circular design? You should, because it’s fun! Have a crafty day!

XO,
Jen Schow

Worlds of Fun Layout by Megan

Hello, lovlies! Megan here, and I’ve been busy making lots of projects with the Freckled Fawn November embellishment kit! The bright colors in this kit reminded me of photos from a day at the amusement park with my husband’s work team, so this was one of the first projects I made.

I really loved this rollercoaster picture, so I knew I wanted it large. I printed it out 8.5 inches wide and made the photos of my husband’s coworkers 4×4 so all of the photos would fit onto one 8.5 x 11 page.

Once I selected the polka dot paper, the design of the page came together quickly! I loved the look of having one line of dots in-between the photos, so I decided to cut down more paper and a journaling card in the same heights as the photos, flip their positions, and mimic the placement.

I wanted letter stickers with the same fun colors as the background paper, so I rubbed the corner of ink pads onto white letter stickers so I could create my own alpha color scheme!

A banner phrase sticker was a good way to start off the journaling block. I also cut the chimney off of one of the rubber houses and used it as an arrow in this space.

To finish the page off, I added white enamel stickers around the title and added shapes from the family foam word stickers to three corners.

This page is simple, but I think it’s a lot of fun!

Do you have a photo you’d like to highlight that could use a scraplift of this page?

XO,
Megan

Best Friends Layout by Niki

Hey there! Niki here with you today with one final layout using the November 2017 Embellishment kit, the November 2017 Journal cards and the November 2017 Papers.

I totally loved the tiny enamel flower charms that were in this month’s kit and had been saving them. I found a cut file that had lots of flowers so cut that from white card and then backfilled all the flowers using the fabulous bright colours that were in this month’s Journal cards and Papers.

I used one of the Papers for my background sheet but added some white gesso paint over a lot of the pattern to provide some separation between the flower cut file and the pattern on the background. Once dry I added my flower cut file and then added my photos.

I added pink waxed thread to the two flower charms and added those to the centre of two of my flowers. I left the thread long and free.

I embellished using label stickers, chipboard phrase banner stickers, a rubber house, and house puffy stickers and then added enamel dots to the centres of all the other flowers. I also used the hears ad stars from the Foam Family Word Stickers.

There is a process video for this layout which you can see below.

Watch on YouTube

I hope you’ve enjoyed my layouts using the November kit, I absolutely loved this kit, it’s one of my favourites to date and how amazing are the 12×12 papers??

Happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki

Right Now Layout by Niki

Hiya Freckled Fawn Fanatics! Niki back today with another layout using the November 2017 Embellishment kit, the November 2017 Journal cards and the November 2017 Papers.

I was inspired by the Wood Veneer word ‘November’ in this month’s kit and it prompted me to make a ‘Right Now’ layout which is something I do every so often. My birthday is in November and I actually spent my birthday playing with this Freckled Fawn kit, so decided to make it a birthday layout. I took a photo of myself and cut a circle phrase ‘right now’ on my silhouette machine.

I created a background using two of the patterned papers that were in the November papers. I also backed the Right Now cut file using the dark navy blue paper in the kit. I backed my photo using journal cards and used another journal card for my journaling strips – I fussy cut the coloured strips on the card.

I used the wood veneer ‘November’ at the top of my layout and painted it with pink glittery paint. I added the number ‘35’ using number stickers (this is to signify my age in case you hasn’t guessed) and embellished the layout with label stickers, a rubber house, several puffy houses, chipboard banners and enamel dots.

I wrote a few sentences about my life right now at age 35, which to be honest, is pretty good J

I have made a process video for this layout which you can see below – enjoy.

Happy scrapping and happy birthday to me!

XO,
Niki

October Pocket Scrapbooking Spread by Megan

 

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 1

Hello lovelies! It’s Megan, and I have a pocket spread to share with you today!

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 2

As soon as I got my new Freckled Fawn November kit, I jumped in using it right away! It has a lot of cute house icons, so I automatically jumped to documenting one of the home improvement projects my I’ve been working on. I made a pocket spread for October 15-21.

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 3

Going on here: Selfie with my son Jonas before I chaperoned his class field trip (which I’ll document with a separate page), out to eat, my daughter Ava’s last soccer game of the season, Jonas tapping, documenting style, my daughter Eliza spending the night at my mom’s to make her Halloween costume, stuck in marathon traffic, rearranging furniture, coffee + books, new pot roast recipe, messy spaghetti photo of my niece.

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 4

I did a lot of embellishing on the title card, which combined cut down patterned paper with a November journaling card, a trio of puffy house stickers to fill in the empty space on the card after I’d added a title, a label sticker in the corner with a little embellishment cluster of a banner phrase sticker and enamel stickers.

Because of that, I kept the rest of the page fairly simple. I used all journaling cards from the kit, adding washi tape to one for a bit more color.

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 5

I used label sticker to add more journaling onto photos and put a banner phrase sticker on one of the collages.

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 6

Going on here: The before picture of Eliza’s unfinished future closet space in the attic–lots of gross insulation that squirrels once lived in and weird broken things previous owners threw in, supplies in the van to finish closet spaces (man, this van is a game changer), my husband Jake playing with our baby niece when we went to go pick up our kids from my brother’s, family dinner and cookie decorating at my mom’s.

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 7

I loved combining a banner phrase sticker and puffy house stickers on each of the home improvement photos. Mirroring products like this is a fun technique!

October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 9

Using label stickers on photos helped me add more journaling. This allowed me to use one of the pockets for a filler journaling card and a banner phrase sticker.

I love how this spread turned out and I’m excited to go make more!

Do you have home improvement projects to document that could use some house icons?

XO,
Megan

Week 20 Project Life Layout by Jennie

Hey Everyone! This is Jennie and today I’m sharing some pocket pages using the November Oh Deer Me Kit! This kit is one of my favorites ever! I love the colors, it has puffy words, cute houses, labels, enamel dots and cute washi! 
I found this note from my daughter’s teacher in her folder so I kept it to add her to my pl book. Next to it I added a cluster with an Acetate Cloud, Puffy White Stars, Chipboard Banner Phrase Stickers and Clear Epoxy Arrow Stickers.

I love adding my daughters’ drawings to my project life. After that I can throw away the paper but keep the memory.

In the title card I used the House Puffy Stickers. At the bottom of the sticky note I used a Summertime Washi Sticker Sheet.

I used the July Vellum Alphas Stickers to write the titles on the November Journaling Cards. On the right, I added Black Puffy Script Alphas.

This is a floating embellishment card. I just added a circle with a cloud, a Chipboard Banner Phrase Stickers, Enamel Dots and little hearts. I made the hearts with cardstock and washi tape.

For the 24 Hours sticker I used the November Label Stickers and I stamped 24 hours on it.

I created a filler card with Vintage Doily Acetate Die CutsHouse Puffy Stickers and I typed Party with Friends on the November Label Stickers.

I created another filler card using the White Foam Family Word Stickers from the November Kit, Puffy White Stars, and white plus signs puffy stickers. 

I hope you enjoyed these pages! And I hope you are enjoying your kit!

XO,
Jennie

Home is Wherever I’m with You Layout by Niki

Hi Freckled Fawn Fans! Niki here today with another layout using the November 2017 Embellishment kit, the November 2017 Journal cards and the November 2017 Papers. I’m just soooooo happy that Freckled Fawn have started designing 12×12 papers!

I began this layout by drawing the ‘is wherever I’m with you’ words onto the bottom of a piece of white card. I then backed that with a very bright paper from the November Papers. I cut two houses on my Silhouette machine and then back-filled those using the November Papers. Once filled, I arranged them onto my layout together with my photo.

I cut the word ‘home’ on my Silhouette machine from white card but that didn’t show up too well against the busy patterns, so I painted it bright pink. It now really pops against the busy background.

I finished off the layout by embellishing using the Chipboard Banner Phrase Stickers, the puffy house stickers and one of the Rubber Houses. I also fussy cut a house from one of the journal cards and the phrase ‘home sweet home’.

What a fun layout and I totally loved creating it. I’ve put together a process video for this layout which you can see below.

Thank you so much for joining me today – what’s your favourite element in this month’s kit?

Happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki

Family Layout by Nicole

Hello Lovelies!
Nicole here and today I’m featuring the beautiful November Freckled Fawn Paper and Embellishment kit!  If you already are not aware, Freckled Fawn recently added 12×12 papers to some of their kits! This months kit is absolutely one of my favorites!!  It’s full of color, dimensional embellishments, the cutest foam word stickers and so much more! Before I show you how I created this layout, here’s a look at the final project:

I began with the solid teal paper and added white gesso to the background. This helps to dull the color a little bit so when I add my water colors on top, they show up a little bit better. Here’s what it looks like before I started adding my layers:
While that was drying, I cut my title, “Family,” on my Silhouette and backed it with various papers from the kit.  I then began to build my layers.  I used this months 3×4 cards to back my photo of my husband and boys.  I also saw the red 3×4 card with a scallop on it and the card with the large house and decided to fussy cut them out to use as embellishments. I also fussy cut some of the small yellow flowers from one of the 12×12 papers as well.
I then decided to use the “dad” foam sticker, but I wanted to add some color to it so it stood out. I used my Vicki Boutin mixed media crayon in red to coordinate it with the rest of the papers and embellishments.

Lastly, I added a rubber house, enamel dots and a label from the November kits and enamel hearts and a heart chipboard sticker from past kits. I finished the layout with my journaling and some tangled thread and that was it!

Here’s one last look at the finished layout:

Thanks so much for joining me today!
Be sure to check out the two kits offered…
the Embellishment Kit + Papers OR the Embellishment Kit + Journaling Cards!
XO,
Nicole

Love Grows Layout by Niki

Hi there, Niki here with you today sharing a layout I made using the November 2017 Embellishment kit, together with the November 2017 Journal cards and the November 2017 Papers.

I was inspired by the White Foam Family Word Stickers and set about making some sort of family tree for this layout. I then found the Love Grows cut file, and decided to fill those little frames with lots of colour and add the Family Word Stickers to those frames, rather than put photos in them.

We’ve recently had a family photo shoot done and I have some lovely photos to scrap of the four of us and this layout about family was ideal for one of those photos.

I used one of the papers as my background and some white card, and cut the branch out in black card. I then used the papers and the journal cards to fill the frames. I then added my photo, after backing it with some more colours from the journal cards and papers. I could then embellish the layout using the Family Word Stickers, a title, the Chipboard Banner Phrase Stickers, one of the rubber house embellishments and enamel dots. I also added in a few of the House Puffy Stickers, which were my favourite item in this month’s kit – they are just SO cute!

I also used a strip of the washi tape at the top of my layout, under the top title.

I have filmed a process video of this layout which you can view below:

Thank you so much for watching and joining me today, I have loved creating with this month’s kit, it is so fun and full of colour.

Happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki
