Hi everyone! Odessa here with a pocket page layout from my weekly 2017 album. I can’t believe the year is half done already. When I first saw the July Freckled Fawn embellishment kit I knew I had the perfect pictures to go with it! Don’t you love when that happens? I had just spent a day at the fair with my family and the pictures were full of the same sort of summery primary shades and family fun which just worked perfect. So perfect that all I used other than the kit were two journal cards.
I went to town with the chipboard pieces and the washi from the kit. I just love the phrases on the washi so much and love a good pop of yellow. I used yellow throughout my layout as well in the chipboard pieces and those adorable rubber phrases. The chipboard had all my favourite elements – word strips, hearts and stars, big words like the together and hi and fun shapes like the banner. There were even little tickets which was just perfect. Can I say perfect again?
Using the washi and rubber pieces throughout the layout helps add some flow. The pictures at the bottom are visibly darker, but by repeating similar elements they get pulled together with the other photos on the page.
The alpha stickers were just perfect! I used them a couple of times on this layout to emphasize sentiments. The lettering is really fun and I like that some letters have upper and lower case as I tend to write with mixed case a lot. And there are two sheets in the kit which means more to use!
The July Embellishment Kit was perfect for documenting some summer fun in my album and I know I am going to be pulling it out a bunch. Even though I used a lot already, there is still lots left in the kit for more layouts.
Nicole here and today I’m sharing a quick two page layout featuring the June Kit!
This kit is is packed full of beautiful summery embellishments! I honestly could not pick a favorite this month! Take a quick look!!!….
However, I’m winding down to the last bits of my kit already…yes, you heard me correctly…LAST pieces! It’s so sad!!! This has been one of my absolute favorites by far! With that being said, I had a lot of oranges and the black embellishments left over…so that inspired me to use those for some fall layouts! What a multi purpose kit!!! Here are the two layouts I created…
I just love how those chipboard phrases fit literally any layout, any season! …And I loved those puffy camera stickers so much I had to bring them back again! LOL!
I encourage you to go thru your past Freckled Fawn kits and see what colors may inspire you for different seasons than when the kits were released! You may be surprised and find that there is still lots of bits waiting to make it to your next layouts!
Hey Everyone! This is Jennie! Today I’m sharing these pocket pages I made using Project Life cards and products from Freckled Fawn. The majority of the Oh Deer Me Kits are very fun and bright so they go perfect with these cards.
When I started my Freckled Fawn addiction I was all about the washi but now the alpha stickers are way up there with washi!
Another thing I love is enamel dots! When they are shaped like these Enamel Hearts Stickers I get crazy excited! This week was really busy with lots of colors and photos! Sometimes I go a little overboard so I stopped myself before it was way too busy!
Speaking of gorgeous acetate pieces, I loved these Acetate Frames from the April Kit. In the last layout I made I only used them in photos but they framed the “Enjoy the Ride” card so well! I might need to get a second pack because I already used the white and light blue frames.
Kids’ drawings are a really good way to demonstrate in which stage kids are right now. If you don’t have kids you can ask the important kids in your life to make a portrait of you. Kids always focus on one thing about you and the rest fits their aesthetic. For example, my daughter always draws me with glasses.

Today I am so excited to share my first layout for Freckled Fawn as a design team gal! For today’s double page layout I used the June Embellishment Kit along with a few extra goodies from the shop. I wanted to document a recent trip my husband and I took to South Carolina together in a grid style layout. I used a digital grid template from Ali Edwards to place my pictures into the layout.
I printed out all the photos at 3×3 and laid them on two 8.5×11 sheets of card stock. Next, I cut up various journal cards from the Adventure set of journal cards to add a bit of color and design to the spread.
I wanted the spread to stay pretty clean and simple so I went light and intentional with the embellishments.
I chose to use the chipboard word strips as my main embellishment. I was happy to see that the word strips matched the photos perfectly!
I love the perfectly shaped enamel hearts and added one on top of the “adventure” card to add a little more color.
I used the cork letters to symbolize “SC” for South Carolina. I love how the cork compliments the navy blue on the card.
I chose a few pictures and cards around the spread to pop up to add a little more interest and dimension to the spread.
I added my journaling on a 3×3 card in the lower right hand corner to bring the whole spread together! I love the whole spread and how it came together easily with the accents and cards from the shop!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a beautiful day!
Hi everyone, it’s Megan! I have a fun pocket spread to share with you today!
I immediately fell in love with the acetate number die cuts in the June 2017 Freckled Fawn Kit. I thought they’d look great on a pocket page, so I decided to make a page documenting my favorite 9 things about last year’s Kansas City Maker Faire! I wanted to have plenty of room for journaling by the numbers, so going with a pocket page protector with 4×4 pockets was perfect: just enough room for 9 number / journaling cards and 9 photos!
I alternated the cards and the corresponding photos to create a checkered pattern. I also made things a bit more interesting by varying the placement of the numbers, which I stapled on.
It was hard to narrow down to just 9 things I wanted to write about for the event. I pulled all of the photos I wanted to use first, then I moved them around and grouped them by common themes until I had nine photo groups. This made coming up with my 9 favorite memories from this Maker Faire much easier!
If you’d find this method overwhelming, you can also write a list of memories first, then look for photos that correspond to or could represent those memories. This could also help you narrow down which photos of an event you’d like to use if you have trouble choosing.
To add more color, I used a washi sticker on one side of each card. I decided which tape to use after placing my numbers and deciding where my photos would go, which helped me to get a good color and pattern balance across the page as a whole.
Next, I added a chipboard phrase sticker to each photo / photo collage.
This is one of my favorite events each year, so I’m so happy with this special spread for it.
Do you have a take on this top 9 idea? How will document your top 9 memories of an event or time period?
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.
Sami here, bringing you this week’s Washi Wednesday.
This tutorial is quick and simple. Today I show you how to make some days of the week journaling cards. These are perfect for Project Life because you can make a journaling card for each day. Documenting a week in the life is such a popular Project Life process right now, I thought the beautiful May washi would work great for this.
I’ve got a Washi Wednesday tutorial to share with you today. I whipped up some simple journaling cards to use in my Project Life album. I really just loved the floral washi from the April Embellishment and Planner kits & wanted to use it on my Project Life.
