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

May Planning with Kim

Hello lovelies!

Kim here!

This May planner kit is so versatile and generous I could use it for a month in my planners.

Today I’m showing you how I use it in a structured layout and one a little less rigid.

I covered up the days of the week with the Washi and then added an additional puffy letter sticker on top to make it pop!

Unstructured I used the chipboard backing as a stencil to make task boxes on my page.

Adding several pops of yellow really makes this page pop!

On this day I repeated the washi and added the dimensional stars and those wonderful vellum stickers.

I got a little goofy doodling using the circles from the “stencil”  along with a few more of the chipboard shapes!

Thanks for stopping by!

XO,
Kim

TV Journal: Time Jump by Kristin

Hello Lovelies,
Kristin here! I keep a bunch of traveler’s notebooks going on at the same time. One of my favorite notebooks to grab is my Television Journal. Inside my TV journal, I art journal about whatever shows I’m watching at the moment.
In this spread, my topic was the recent time jump in one of my favorite TV shows. I used the post it notes from the April Planner Kit to create a patterned paper background for my title and journaling. I embellished the right page of the spread with some of the purple toned elements in the April kit, as they complimented both the pink tones in the graphic and the vellum purple alphas in the title.

XO,
Kristin

April Happy Planner Planning with Kim

Hello lovelies, Kim here!

Welcome to my Happy Planner that I use for work! I don’t often show what is going on in my Design Team life but this neutral layout is the perfect base for this super fun and bright April Freckled Fawn Embellishment Kit. If you’re gonna work, you might as well be happy about it!

On the first page I always have a running to do but this time I used the Lavender Alpha as the header. To accent that space, I used the floral washi, but instead of using it the way it was, I cut it in half and flipped the sides before adding it to the page!

Even though Easter has no real relivance to my work calendar, I thought it might be a good idea to have it represented using one of the frames from the kit.

The other side, I again, used those frames to highlight certain days, but also the write a quote in.

The remainder of the quote I placed on the bottom accented by those long enamel diamond stickers in a nifty pattern. across the page.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!!

XO,

Kim

April Planning with Kristin

Hello Lovelies, Kristin here.

I love using Freckled Fawn supplies to help organize and brighten up my planner spreads. The sticky notes in this month’s planner kit were so amazing, I think I’ve used almost half of mine up already. They’re the perfect tiny size. They fit across two days in my Get to Workbook, which makes them perfect for multi-day activities.

The same thing applies to the journaling cards. I like having a big space where I can brainstorm my ideas while still having them in my planner. With the journaling card, I can move it from week-to-week without having to write down all of that information over and over again.

I hope you enjoyed this look in my planner. Have a lovely day!

XO,
Kristin
