June Sketch Layout by Odessa

Hello lovelies! Odessa here!

I was so inspired by the May/June Freckled Fawn sketch that I reworked it using the June Embellishment kit.You can see the sketch & play along below!

I decided to translate the sketch into a Traveler’s Notebook spread. I always print TOO MANY pictures for my weekly spreads so I like to keep the extras for when I feel like having some fun. I like to think of my Traveler’s Notebook as my scrappy sketch book. It’s a place where I can have fun, experiment or do whatever! I don’t do a lot of traditional layouts, but I have a great love of collage so it’s a great way to put the two together.

I kept the basics of the sketch intact – two pictures laid horizontally across a strip of paper on top of another strip. Since the sketch was specific to the May kit, this is where I had to get creative! Since the kit was so summery I decided to do a spread with a summery feel about getting going (in flip flops of course).

I used a word chipboard to the right of the photo in place of the washi strip along with the fun flip flop resin piece instead of the chipboard star. Up above I decided to add in those amazing acetate number pieces (I love that the kit comes wth 3 of each!!!) to go with the get going theme I had going on along with some of the cute enamel hearts. I added in some ephemera and voila! All fancy!

Below I used one of the word washi strips for the title and then finished it off with some simple journaling. And that’s how I translated the May Sketch over to the June Kits with a fresh summery feel.

I hope you will give the sketch a try! Click here to play along.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Odessa

Swing Swing Layout by Sami

Hello lovelies!

Sami here, with a June kit layout to share. I really love the fun colors of the June kits, and they worked beautifully with the layout I created.

I made this two page layout as a project life/traditional scrapping hybrid of sorts that I like to call the cheater method. I incorporate a ton of photos into my album, by including pages such as this. And I love having traditional pages mixed in with project life style pages in my album. I do this by adhering all my project life style spread directly down to 12×12 cardstock so I don’t have to worry about all the different pocket pages being mixed in with 12×12 pages and having to put certain types of pages on the front and back. This gives me the freedom to create whatever style page layout on each side of the page.

On the traditional page, I decided to put the acrylic phrase directly over the photo because there was a lot of extra space in the photo. I really like how it looked over the photo.

I used a couple of the cute washi borders: one near the top of my photo & one down the right side of the layout. I also added a few of the little enamel hearts to the layout.

Last but not least, I added my favorite cork scallop at the bottom edge of the photo & layered it with one of the chipboard phrases from the kit.

These are among my favorite photos of my little girl (who is now 2) when she was a tiny baby. I kept the spread very simple, but the June kit really made it beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

South Carolina Layout by Candace

Hello friends! Candace here!

Today I am so excited to share my first layout for Freckled Fawn as a design team gal! For today’s double page layout I used the June Embellishment Kit along with a few extra goodies from the shop. I wanted to document a recent trip my husband and I took to South Carolina together in a grid style layout. I used a digital grid template from Ali Edwards to place my pictures into the layout.

I printed out all the photos at 3×3 and laid them on two 8.5×11 sheets of card stock. Next, I cut up various journal cards from the Adventure set of journal cards to add a bit of color and design to the spread.

I wanted the spread to stay pretty clean and simple so I went light and intentional with the embellishments.

I chose to use the chipboard word strips as my main embellishment. I was happy to see that the word strips matched the photos perfectly!

I love the perfectly shaped enamel hearts and added one on top of the “adventure” card to add a little more color.

I used the cork letters to symbolize “SC” for South Carolina. I love how the cork compliments the navy blue on the card.

I chose a few pictures and cards around the spread to pop up to add a little more interest and dimension to the spread.

I added my journaling on a 3×3 card in the lower right hand corner to bring the whole spread together! I love the whole spread and how it came together easily with the accents and cards from the shop!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a beautiful day!

XO,
Candace

Hello Summer Layout by Niki

Hi there! Niki here with you today with a summery layout with lots of washi!

I loved the bright summery colours on the washi sheets that were included in the June Embellishment kit & planner kit. They are such fun patterns. I wanted to re-create the look of the whole sheet on my layout so I placed them all along one side of my layout. The colours and patterns really pop against the white card background. I added a few more strips to other parts of the layout and then added stitching detail with both straight stitch and zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine.

I added a doily and my photo and then had some fun adding embellishments. I backed the wood veneer sunshine with orange paper so that the words appeared orange.  I used some of the circle washi stickers and a few circles and hearts cut from patterned papers. I built up the embellishing by adding chipboard words, those fantastic flip-flops and I cut up tiny shapes from one of the washi strips and put them individually onto my layout – with the white background of the washi, these look like rub-on transfers! They were the perfect tiny embellishment that I was looking for.

I love how bright and summary the layout turned out!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki

Week 14 of Project Life by Jennie

Hey Everyone! Jennie here!
In this post I am sharing a Project Life spread using the June Oh Deer Me Kit with some pieces of the May Oh Deer Me Kit.

I am crazy about word stickers! The June kit comes with the Summertime Chipboard Phrases and they are very versatile!

To journal I used number stickers in the photos and I wrote the journaling in 2 cards using my typewriter.

These Yellow Puffy Script Alphas Stickers are perfect! My favorite Freckled Fawn Alphas ever! They also come in white!

I knew this card would be perfect for this popsicle Resin Shape and I added a Enamel Heart Sticker for extra fun!

The black scallop washi tape pops out of the project life card and the enamel dots are perfect little details to add a visual triangle.

These Acetate Frames so whimsical and perfect! I used the Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue to glue them since it’s a clear glue and once it dries you can’t really see it.

The Summertime Washi Stickers Sheets are perfect to layer! On top I added White Foam Stickers. They are really cool and also come in black!

To glue the sunglasses Resin Shape and the Acrylic Picture Perfect word I used the Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

Check out the process video to see how I made this spread! I also have a quick unboxing of the June Oh Deer Me Kit!
Thanks for visiting my blog! Take Care!
XO,
Jennie

9 Favorite Maker Faire Memories Layout by Megan

Hi everyone, it’s Megan! I have a fun pocket spread to share with you today!

I immediately fell in love with the acetate number die cuts in the June 2017 Freckled Fawn Kit. I thought they’d look great on a pocket page, so I decided to make a page documenting my favorite 9 things about last year’s Kansas City Maker Faire! I wanted to have plenty of room for journaling by the numbers, so going with a pocket page protector with 4×4 pockets was perfect: just enough room for 9 number / journaling cards and 9 photos!

I alternated the cards and the corresponding photos to create a checkered pattern. I also made things a bit more interesting by varying the placement of the numbers, which I stapled on.

It was hard to narrow down to just 9 things I wanted to write about for the event. I pulled all of the photos I wanted to use first, then I moved them around and grouped them by common themes until I had nine photo groups. This made coming up with my 9 favorite memories from this Maker Faire much easier!

If you’d find this method overwhelming, you can also write a list of memories first, then look for photos that correspond to or could represent those memories. This could also help you narrow down which photos of an event you’d like to use if you have trouble choosing.

To add more color, I used a washi sticker on one side of each card. I decided which tape to use after placing my numbers and deciding where my photos would go, which helped me to get a good color and pattern balance across the page as a whole.

Next, I added a chipboard phrase sticker to each photo / photo collage.

This is one of my favorite events each year, so I’m so happy with this special spread for it.

Do you have a take on this top 9 idea? How will document your top 9 memories of an event or time period?

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Megan
