Hello, Fawn Fanatics! Megan here. Today I’m going to share the first part of a scrapbooking workshop trip album with you!
Last month I went to Michigan to attend Awesome Ladies Live, an event put on by The Awesome Ladies Project. This was such an amazing experience full of wonderful instruction and projects from fellow FF creative team member Kristin, plus quality time with old and new friends. It was so inspiring me to hear about other women’s joys and challenges of telling their stories.
Currently, I’m putting together a minibook about the event. To keep things simple for myself, I stuck with mostly patterned paper backgrounds from my stash and the July 2017 Freckled Fawn kit throughout the album, plus a few journaling cards.
This spread has a collage of photos from the second half of the workshop, with ALP letter stickers, and a page with a photo Kam took of me with a “this is my story” patterned paper I made in the workshop. I added a scrap of paper to journal on for this page, starting off my journaling with a glitter arrow sticker and adding a star chipboard sticker to the top corner of the photo.
For this album, I decided to jump around to work on pages that fit with the papers I’d pulled from my stash and ideas for pages I was getting from the July kit. Sometimes this helps me to get motivated on a bigger project–it’s easier for me to go where I’m inspired, then fill in the gaps, than it is for me to try to plan a whole album at once.
This spread has my thursday3 selfie in the spot Kristin often takes hers and my friend Amy reading in Kristin’s hammock with our foster daughter (alias Tiny).
I kept these pages very simple: label stickers to add in a bit of journaling for context, a line of glitter icons on the left page and a wood topper paper clip and doodle phrase rubber shape on the right.
The night before the event started I went to see the musical Fun Home with friends, which was fantastic. I used a yellow cardstock background so I could go busier with the embellishments–I added a line of them down the side of the page for journaling, along with a ticket chipboard sticker. I saved the bits of the label overlap that I cut off for the facing page. The bits I didn’t use went back on the sticker sheet for future use. I also added the title with letter stickers and a glitter icon sticker.
The facing page is about the rest of the night when we got back–more friends getting into town, shared dessert, and Tiny “helping” Kristin make rolls. I finished this page off with a border of washi on the top and bottom of the page (with a rubber word hidden in the washi), journaling directly on the photos, a chipboard star sticker, and leftover label bits. The embellishments really helped me to ground the photo placements.
The first part of the Awesome Ladies Live event was a barbecue at Kristin’s, and I just couldn’t wait to scrap these group photos that Jake took of us. I added watermelon flair to the right page, since I didn’t get many food photos, and the title “together” with the chipboard flair.
These pages kick off the main ALP: Live event Saturday! We had a 30 Days of Lists sponsored breakfast with a big group of ladies and then started rukristin’s day long workshop.
On the left page, I added a photo I took of my pie, coffee, and #30Lists swag! I added a Love Journal Card with a letter sticker + handwritten title and a paper scrap to add journaling. I also added a little chipboard “get together” phrase sticker at the bottom.
For the right page, I put on a big collage of photos from the first half of the workshop. The “hi” chipboard sticker ended up being super cute on top of the Awesome Lady zipper pouch photo! I added a bit of journaling to the side, which I went over multiple times so it could be read on top of the busy scissor patterned paper.
Eventually these two pages won’t go together. I have to track down the group photo outside of the restaurant and I’ll back it with the schedule for the workshops plus a little description of the event as a whole.
I made a spread covering our rest after the main event Saturday. Tiny and friends hanging out on one side, playing Rock Band on the other. I kept the left side simple with just a chipboard arrow sticker.
On the right, I added journaling on a card from the Every Moment Counts set, added a rubber phrase shape, and finished off my photo block with a bit of doodle washi (which I trimmed down to get phrases that worked on this page).
Last, I made a spread about the famous MSU Dairy Store, which was part of the East Lansing sight-seeing that the ALP: Live group did on Sunday. The ice cream was delicious (well worth staying later in the day Sunday, even though we had a 12 hour drive ahead of us) and I’m glad I was there to celebrate one of the attendees on her birthday!
On the left I included a 6×8 photo of Kristin and I with a title made from letter stickers and handwritten on a chipboard label. I also put a little glitter star in the corner of the photo.
The right page has a photo of me and my ice cream cone, Melissa as we sang happy birthday to her, and a group shot of ice cream picks. I placed these photos into a collage block and added white cardstock to the empty space so I’d have room for journaling. A label sticker gave me room for a tiny bit more journaling and I finished the page off with an ice cream chipboard sticker and a little phrase sticker!
I still have many more pages to make for this album, but I’m going to take a break for now and switch back to pocket scrapbooking! I love that laying the groundwork means that I’ll be able to finish this album quickly when I’m ready. (But first I should probably finish editing and sharing the photos from the event with the participants!)
I absolutely adore the numbers in the June kit, I wanted to use them on every single project. But when I have a special product, I almost always turn to a mini-album in order to show it off.
This mini-album is constructed with 3×4″ journaling cards, 3×4″ clear paper (acetate), 3×4 photos, Freckled Fawn numbers, a hole punch, and a binder ring.
I had a bunch of fun photos from last summer, some of which I had put in my big scrapbook album, and some of which I hadn’t gotten around to scrapbooking at all. I liked that they all had the same theme of summer, but each had a short story to tell on their own.
To create this album, I created a mini-album stack — which is just a bunch of layers repeated on top of each other. For this album the stack was (from top to bottom): Freckled Fawn number, acetate page, photograph, journaling card, repeat.
After stamping a single hole in each page, I gave the cover a cute title sentiment and added the binder ring through each of the pages, completing my summer mini-album.
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.
Welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I want to share some cute inspiration with the awesome May embellishment kit. I made three clean and simple gift tags using three of the delicate floral stickers from the kit. All you need for today’s project is white cardstock, a hole punch, three floral stickers from the kit and matching stickers to decorate the hole.
The tags are really effortless to make. First, cut three tags (or even more if you want to) from blank white cardstock. Then punch a hole at the top and add a floral sticker from the May embellishment kit to each of the tags.
If you want to, you can add color-matching stickers to decorate the holes. All done. Super-easy and now you’re ready to decorate your next gifts for a dear friend.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful day!
Welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I would like to spread some happiness with three cute gift tags I embellished with just the right amount of decoration from the awesome April Embellishment Kit.
I cut three of the April journaling cards to a rectangle shape, cut of the upper corners with a scissors and added a hole at the top for the golden thread.
The colorful stripes of the first tag really make me smile. They remind me of summer, fun and happy days. I added some golden thread and one of the cute chipboad stickers from the April kit.
For the next tag, I used the journaling card that has all those fun frames on it. I added three of the wonderful cork stars and the chipboard sticker saying ‘enjoy this’. This gift tag is great for decorating any gift.
And here comes the final gift tag I would like to show you today. Like the other two, this one is also really effortless to make – just cut the journaling card and add a puffy star and a chipboard sticker. Done :). I really like the floral border – it’s so beautiful. Don’t you think?
I’m hoping you like my gift tag inspiration. Have fun creating with your FF April Embellishment Kit.
Hey Fawns! rukristin here today sharing a traveler’s notebook mini-album I made for my partner for Valentine’s Day.
Each Valentine’s I make him a small album of my favorite photos of us together over the last year. I keep the journaling simple and to the point with single sentence reasons why I love him.
I modified a Traveler’s Notebook to give myself room for ten pages of photos & journaling, a big centerpiece page, and then a front and back cover. I did this by taking out a few of the center pages and then gluing pages back to back. Which conveniently makes them much stronger as well.
On each page, I stamped a number onto one of the button stickers from the February kit. I added a photo from my Polaroid Zink portable printer. I added a simple sheet of patterned paper on the opposite page (I rotated four patterns throughout the album).
One of my favorite techniques to use in a mini-album, is to create a centerpiece page. There are so many pages and photos and bits of journaling throughout a mini-album, that I hate when I get bogged down with tons of embellishments everywhere. I always feel like my pages are competing with each other when that happens.
For my centerpiece page in this album, I chose the center of the album, and used phrase stickers from the February kit to create a patterned paper like background. I opted for a strong contrast with big bold black foam letters.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my album.
This is a mini-album I put together with The Awesome Ladies Project in mind.
The monthly storytelling theme was ‘Right-Now’ and so I put together an album that reflected how I’m feeling in my life right now.
I used the January Embellishment kit for this album. The album was put together with chipboard covers, cardstock, and binder rings. I added some photos throughout. I used journaling cards and stickers from this month’s kit. Again, the bright colors were absolutely perfect against the dreary winter blues I’ve been feeling.
