Black and White Planning with Kim

Hello, lovelies! Kim here bringing you some black and white planner inspiration.

Every September Freckled Fawn does and exclusive black and white kit.  Black is the perfect dress when it comes to planning for me; goes with anything.

These alphas got a color change from White and Yellow in the May kit  and will look fantastic together, but I wanted to keep this weekly spread very monochromatic.  I added pieces of the vellum strips to highlight a few things and then added a half strip under the alphas. Because Sunday doesn’t have any events, its a great time to jazz up the planner with some black and white patterned paper.  (I’m totally excited about the new FF paper subscription coming next month!!!!)

These thin days of the week wood veneers I’ve used 2 ways.  I cut it an half and inked the first half and the second half I used as a stamp. But hen the flap folds down….

…I have day meeting up with the other side for a perfect fit!  I did end up using most of the washi tape on the sides and top as well as a divider on the Monday page to distinguish between my tasks for the day and the weekly goals. The glitter enamel triangles were a great addition to focus my attention to the slew of phone calls that I had to make!

Thanks for stopping by today!

XO,
Kim

October Memory Planning by Kim

Howdy Freckled Fawners!  Kim here to talk about this wonderful October kit and my 1st project using a ring bound memory planner.

On the right hand side I wanted use the new 8.5 x 11 papers and the journal cards to the max.  After placing my horizontal picture on a vertical card, I started playing around with semi-circles and layered them concentrating on the right and center of the page.

I placed the October wood veneer within the rings and wrapped a couple of those fantastic golden leaves around it to stick up as tabs.

My center divider was made from the new papers as well.  I punched a few larger wholes on the edge so I could tie some twine.  Those alphas just made my day!

The picture on the left is actually 3×4.  I just scored it down the center and wrapped it around the divider.

There is Tyler in his suit for homecoming on the facing divider side.

The journal card that matches the paper was ripped at the top for texture and a  stripped label sticker was added and wrapped just like the picture….

So it would be placed over part of Jack’s Homecoming dance picture.

Another vertical journal card, trimmed this time, was added as a base for Eli’s sliding picture.  And instead of adding journaling to the chipboard piece, I added it below it.

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope this inspires you to use your October kit creatively!

XO,
Kim

August Planning with Kim

Hi there!  Kim here to show you a fresh way of using some of the beautiful elements in the August Embellishment Kit!

 To start off with, we got these beautiful Vintage Doily Acetate Diecuts!
I used them two ways.  I placed them in a random pattern on the bed of my copier and printed a page.  I then cut it to fit as a background for my planner page.  I creates a beautiful, smooth surface to write your day’s tasks on in addition to using them physically in other places in your planner as well.

 I made this tag by using parts and pieces of the journal cards designed exclusively for Freckled Fawn by Lili Niclass.  I also attached a piece of the acetate doily as well as the floral wood chips to create some more texture and interest.

 On the facing page I again, used a ripped journal card as a header for some events happening that Friday and accented it with those incredibly clear phrase stickers.  Seriously, can not get more clearer than clear!

And the hidden gem of the kit would be the metal charms in a doily, feather and leaf.  I’ve attached them together and clipped to the elastic of my travelers notebook as a fun accessory.  These are exclusive to the kit which I’m sad to say has sold out already but you can always subscribe to be in on next month’s exclusive goodies no matter what!

 I appreciate you joining me here!  I hope I’ve inspired you today!

XO,
Kim

July Monthly Spread by Kim

Hey there, Kim here to show you how the embellishment kit works flawlessly as a planner kit!  As you can see from the shop already, that the planner kit is sold out! #yeah  But this embellishment kit is absolutely spot on for use as a planner kit instead!

The chipboard pieces, like the sun, star and phrase sticker, add fantastic dimension and texture to your layout.  If you have concerns about them being too bulky on your page, just take an xacto knive or even the point of your finger nail to decrease the bulk of the paper layers, to what ever height you would like.

Then run it through a Xyron machine or add you’re own adhesive to add it to your layout easily!

 This corner I got a little goofy, split the watermelon chipboard in 2 and made it into an emoji-like dude with drawn teeth and an enamel dot eyeball. Those alpha stickers, printed on super think and lux vellum add a great, fun font choice to this view. And don’t forget to document some memories along the way, which I did with the label stickers and a picture of my favorite Luke!

There are so many details in the this layout, from the glitter icon stickers to the resin two toned heart,  I can always stop back and see something I didn’t know I had put there before! Thanks for joining me today and I would love to see how you use the embellishment kit in your planner!

XO,
Kim

July Planning with Kim

Hello lovelies! Kim here with a July planner spread.

I’ve done several planner spreads with the July Embellishment kit (the Planner kit is sold out!), and I totally love the summer vibes feel associated with it!

The best part of these kits are the flexibility of them; you can be either unstructured or structured in nature depending on your style of planning!  Today I’ll show you both ways, using the same planner.

My first planner spread using this kit is totally unstructured.

The alphas in this kit mirror the washi tape so well I wanted to feature them together in this fun little corner mimicking a camp sign post.

I used the labels to write down some tasks for the day and I also included a picture of our recent vacation since I was reminiscing on how fun a time we had!

I have no problem stapling the rubber shapes onto the page! It always adds a bit of fun texture to your layouts along with the glitter icon stickers!

Now, here are the pages for the structured layout!

On the top part of the page, I used the alpha to highlight the activities we have for each day.

Then on the bottom of the page, with a background of watercolor, I added my to do lists.

The label and chipboard stickers are a great fill in for the space left over and the perfect place and some more reminders!

I love the versatility and variety in each and every kit.  Go grab yourself one too!

XO,
Kim

DIY Planner Accessories with Kim

Hello lovelies,
Kim here!
I love to not only jazz up my spread but the planner outside itself.  Of course there is a bow in the June Planner Kit that you add to a clip to decoratively hold your pages together, but there are also some elements in this months kit that inspired me to make 3 additional fun things to pair with my planner this month.

The first thing is a planner bookmark pictured above.

The only additional items besides the  awesome pearl circle stickers is a hot glue gun and some embroidery floss or string of your choosing.  All you have to do is stick a pearl to the floss.  Then dab the tiniest of hot glue on it and face with another pearl of you choosing.

I did some alternating colors but you can do as you please.

 

The next is this cute planner charm.  Armed with a drill and a small drill bit I easily drilled a hole in 2 of the acrylic shapes and the wood veneer.  Using 3 jump rings and an alligator clasp to gain some distance from the “hello summer” sun I then connected the popsicle and watermelon with a small chain.

How cute did that turn out?!!?

The last accessory I made was using the washi strips.  Since the kit came with 4 sheet, 2 of each design, I thought I could spare a few to make a fun paperclip.

All I did was face three strips with the same design. So simple.

I then stacked all three, folded them in half to make a loop then threaded the loop end through a paperclip.  After putting the ends through the loop I pulled tight and then fish-tailed the orange strip with scissors.

Now you have some fresh ideas on how to make some fresh planner accessories using your fab FF kit!

Thanks for stopping!

XO,
Kim

June Planning with Kim

Hello lovelies,
Kim here with a June TN spread!

Hello Summer! So happy to be joining you on the other side of school concerts, sports playoffs and final exams! It’s time to get ready for our brief time off with my monthly June layout using this retro-fun kit!

This cute little corner was made possible by those fabulous washi stickers.  I used the scalloped strip bleed for the left edge and nestled this three some of circles together to fill in rare empty date.  I separated the heart and star washi decoration on its own so that I could place each on game dates. Since they start at the same time and at the same place. it seemed like a logical solution to simplify and honestly I wasn’t too jazzed about writing “Tyler’s baseball game @6” 10 times:)

Each of the numbered acetate die cuts are so varied in print and color but I think the six paired well with the washi strips and the epoxy hearts to round out this corner.

I doesn’t take much or time to add some zest to our planners.  A smidge of eye candy to see while reminding me of those important dates and also to suggest that this is the time for rest and refreshing….between baseball games:)

Thanks for joining me!

XO,
Kim

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
