Simple Washi Planner Decorating | Washi Wednesday

Hello lovelies!

Sami here bringing you another Washi Wednesday!

Today I thought I would show you a super quick look into my planner. I’ve been using an Inkwell Press Planner for 2017 & today I did a bit of washi decorating using the gorgeous new May washi. This washi is available in the store now individually and as part of the May Planner kit & May Embellishment kit.

Sneak peeks for June officially start tomorrow, but I have a super cute sneak peek in today’s video 🙂

Watch on YouTube

I love how washi adds a beautiful decorative touch to my planner without adding any extra bulk to the page.

I’d love to see how you use washi in your planner. Be sure to tag us on Instagram @shopfreckledfawn & share your projects in our Freckled Fawn Fanatics group.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

My Baby Boy Layout by Soraya

Hello lovelies,

Soraya has a beautiful layout to share with you today. She used the May embellishment kit for this one.

She broke apart the wood chip from the May kit and used it on different areas of her layout. The effect is absolutely stunning!

She built up some beautiful layering with the hearts & various embellishments from the kit. I love the way she has the title coming out of one of the heart shapes.

I hope you enjoyed looking at Soraya’s lovely work today.

Have a lovely day!

Traveler’s Notebook on the Go with Megan

Hello lovelies,

Megan here!

I just took a trip to San Antonio, and I brought my May Kit and traveler’s notebook with me so I could make a few pages on the go! I ended up finishing most of the album when I got home so I could print out photos, but I made one spread while traveling using a business card and an Instax photo.

Because the card and the photo were a similar size, I decided to go with basically the same design on both pages, but flipped so they would mirror each other.

The flowers in each corner, trimmed off of the edge of the page, help anchor the rest so all of the elements aren’t just floating in the middle.

I love the White Puffy Stickers on the white background. Framing the words with minimal embellishments helps make them stand out!

I really wanted to use the days of the week washi from the kit, but I wanted a longer strip than just the word Friday, I used chipboard sticker for journaling and to cover up the other days of the week.I also could have cut out and repeated “Friday” or circled / framed it, but this was a good quick solution!

I love how cute this spread came out with limited supplies! I decided to carry on and use just photos, words, and the May kit for the rest of the album. You can see the rest here.

Do you scrapbook in traveler’s notebooks on the go?

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Megan

Project Life with Odessa

Hello lovelies,

Odessa here!

When my May Embellishment kit showed up I was so excited. The colours are so me. I just love pops of yellow, magenta, lavenders and minty greens. It’s my colour happy place. I had to pull it out and put it together with pictures right away. I had just got some pictures printed for my weekly pocket page album so I was ready to get busy! I pulled out some journal cards that matched the colours and the kit and got to work.

When I pulled out all the elements in the kit I knew I had to use that wood piece! It’s just so pretty! I decided to make it the focal point of the layout. I gave it a wash of white with a chalk marker and mounted it on a journal card. I had to trim it down just a bit to fit the 3×4 size but it’s perfect!

I just LOVED the little speech bubbles in the kit! They are so much fun! I love adding word stickers and embellishments to layouts for emphasis and these were pretty perfect. And those colours! I used them across the layout to create some harmony.

Another thing I used for some harmony was the washi. The mint washi with the pretty scripted days of the week is so nice! I put it on a few pictures to pull things together and get some time context in there. And because it’s cute!!!

I think of everything in the kit, my favourite was the yellow alphas. Yellow alphabets are my favourite, and these might just be my favourite yet. They’re really easy to use and position which I like – I love when you can flex an alpha sticker a little to make it fit just right. The yellow just pops! It was great for emphasizing a couple of words throughout my layout.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you got a dose of inspiration.

XO,
Odessa

Decorative Gifts by Sandra

Welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and the May Embellishment Kit inspired me to make some happy tags and a treat bag.

I store them in a box and whenever a birthday or celebration is coming up, I look into the box. It’s definitely a time saver for me to have a lot of them ready to be used.

I made tags in different sizes and shapes and used some of the lovely products that are in the kit this month to decorate the tags.

The floral and butterfly stickers are really my faves, because they are great for tags and can be used for any occasion. Plus it’s really easy to use them – just stick them down to the tag and add some alphas or other things like the star stickers or the washi tape from the kit.

What are your favourite things from this month’s kit? I hope you enjoy this kit just as much as I do.

Have a wonderful day!

XO,
Sandra

James is Here Layout by Megan

Hello everyone! It’s Megan, and today I’m sharing a take on the May sketch.

I usually like to use sketches as a challenge to myself, trying out different page sizes or translating them as a pocket page design, but I decided to follow the sketch closely this month as a way to get myself out of a creative slump. It was so nice to complete a page without having to put too much thought into it, and having the elements from the May kit picked out already made it especially easy.

My only major change was making the photos bigger. Making one of the photos black and white helped put focus onto the color one, which is a good trick to use if you have two similar photos that are the same size!

Because I used a patterned paper as a background, I stapled the acetate speech bubbles to white cardstock and cut them out so they’d show up well!

I also used tiny enamel dots from the May Planner Kit in place of stars, because I always need more purple supplies!

Because my bigger photos spread across the full page, the clip on the side of the photo block on the sketch wouldn’t work. I moved the circle shape on the sketch up a bit and switched out a clip for resin flair (more purple!).

I also included a purple cardstock sticker as a place to add the date (and as a way to create a purple visual triangle).

To make the thin alpha work on the patterned background, I traced each letter with marker to make sure the title popped.

I added journaling on vellum with a typewriter, adhering it with a staple and another enamel dot.

I loved this sketch! Finishing it helped me get back on a good creativity kick!

Are you doing a project with this month’s sketch too? I’d love to see it!

Megan
