When it came to the month spread, I used a scalloped shape to nestle those button stickers in. I also used the leftover backing sheet from the glitter chipboard stickers to create stencil and make headers or my banner flags on three of the days.
For this week I did a plan with me video, that you are more than welcome to enjoy. I used the stencil one again to create the feathers this time to denote the weekend.
To mimic a notes section I divided off Monday to use it as such and then filled in with other ephemera to balance the spread.
I’m not sure why I’ve never tried this but I did section off each day with the washi strip borders. It really is a great use for those last little bits of kit!
The next week I just did two corners of washi on Monday and Friday to balance out the week.
The notes and rambling section is sectioned off to help designate categories I will use. Meeting notes, the month ahead thoughts and meal planning ideas are a great way to not waste that extra space in your planner.
Lastly, the focus page where I have laid out monthly goals and created daily habits. I may not have a focus for the month, but I really like the way this pretty little corner turned out to be.
I do have a video walk through where I talk more in depth about this monthly project. It is also embedded below!
Big congrats to sherylbanares for being this week’s Fawntastic Friday feature!

Of course, the feathers are great even if you don’t have an avian friend, feathers can be good for documenting love (think “birds of a feather flock together,” “our nest,” or even “you ruffle my feathers”).
I love all of the colors in the kit–it gave me so many options! But sometimes options are overwhelming. If you are having trouble choosing which elements from a kit to use, try just picking two or three colors and sticking with those. This can also help you get out of the mindset of the kit’s theme (February’s kit isn’t just for Valentine’s Day!). For my layout, I choose to use mostly the teal with a few pops of pink.
I had fun making this layout on the diagonal, using a combo of photos and pocket scrapbooking cards for big “stripes” and embellishments from the kit for smaller stripes. I added two teal “love” strips from the washi booklet across the middle, a pink feather washi strip in opposite corners, and finished the corners off with puffy border stickers.
This is a really easy design to scraplift and can be used with lots of different photo size variations!
I used the vellum phrase stickers as a border for this card and added an epoxy heart in the center–which meant that some of the sticker went off the edge of the page and was cut off. Epoxy takes some force to cut through and sometimes the piece you cut off will go flying, so be careful!
I added two button stickers and a feather chipboard sticker to a journaling card. The feathers can be used like arrows, pointing in the direction you want the viewer’s eye to travel on the page.
I finished off the page with the big wooden “I love you” heart in the middle of a feather card!
I’m so happy with this first page about Hermes and I know I’ll be making tons more.
Do you document your pets? How about using this month’s kit as a love layout for your feathered, furry, or gilled friend? I’d love to see what you make!
She created this amazing background using the Freckled Fawn journaling cards. Some of these are February cards and some are past month cards.
She used many of the February kit items to embellish: washi book, chipboard shapes, puffy borders, wood heart, and vellum phrases. She also used past kit items too. I love the combo of old and new products on this one.
Here’s a closer look at her title: The Best, which was made with a wood chip. So pretty!
Look at all those beautiful layers!
