May Bible Journaling with Kim

Hello lovelies,

Kim here! We’ve got another sketch challenge for all of you this May!  And just like last month, I used my bible for the base of my project. I used the May planner kit along with the new White Puffy Alphas on this spread.

I think this sketch could go a lot of different ways and I hope that you play along!

I didn’t use photos like last time but instead used the boxes to highlight the verse I was focusing on, which was Ecclesiastes 2:17.

Instead of using paint, I used stamp pads with varying degrees of texture, color and liquidity to create a foundation for the journaling  and the perfect velum stickers used in this May kit.

I added some chipboard shapes and the paper clip to the page instead of on the top by making a quick slit with an xacto knife.

Watch on YouTube

And here is the process video on my You Tube Channel which shows you how it all came together!

Hope to see you link up!

XO,
Kim

May Sneak Peek Week Begins + Design Team Annoucement!

Hello lovelies!

It’s that time again. I can’t believe I am already saying this, but. . . It’s May sneak peek week!! We’re kicking it off with welcoming new design team members! I’ll be sharing the May mood board tomorrow.

Visit Freckled Fawn on Instagram and Facebook for more sneaky peeks of the May kit today & all week long! Here’s your first peek at the May kits. This has been one of my absolute favorite kits EVER! The colors and patterns are SO GOOD. These alphas make my heart go boom boom.

Please note, that we have not yet contacted guest designers yet. We appreciate everyone who applied for the team. There were so so many talented designers, and it was grueling to have to narrow it down to just a few. I wish we could have selected everyone.

Let’s introduce these lovely ladies!

Nicole

Hello all! My name is Nicole and I’m from Pittsburgh, PA. I am married to a wonderful man of over 12 years and a mother of 2 amazing boys. I work in the accounting field by day and paint, create and scrapbook by night. In 2010, I was introduced to the card making community and from there I have grown to love creating layouts, art journal spreads and bible journal entries. I love everything creative and colorful! I believe that I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to express myself and inspire others through my visions and creations. Never be afraid to show the world what it is that you create! Just be you!

 

Jennie

I’m Jennie! I am a wife and mother of two silly girls. I live in Maryland, but I am originally from Puerto Rico. I’ve been a Fawnatic for more than 3 years and I am a die hard project lifer and washi tape lover!

Lisa

Hi, I’m Lisa, I’m 31, I live in Luxembourg and I’m a preschool teacher. I love everything planner and scrapbook related, I love everything creative and I’m very proud to be part of the design team!

 

Niki

My name is Niki, I’m 34, married with two young kiddies and I live in the UK near London. I’m a SAHM but I do some work as a childminder and I also teach scrapbooking classes locally, as well as co-run a scrapbooking-retreat company.
I LOVE to scrapbook, in fact I do it nearly every day and average around 30 layouts per month. I get withdrawal symptoms if something stops me scrapping for a few days. I love coffee and shortbread biscuits and embellishment packs. And sequins and I love for my layouts to have lots of dimension and be packed full of interesting things.
I am a huge fan of Freckled Fawn kits and have been a subscriber for over two years now and I am super-excited to have the opportunity to have a place on this amazing Design Team.

 

Candace

This is me.  I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter and a friend.  My days are filled with cleaning dishes, driving kids to practice, kissing boo boos, singing nursery songs, calling a friend, folding mounds of  laundry, cleaning the dishes AGAIN, washing tushies and toes, tucking little ones in bed, and then doing it all again.  But in our crazy, busy, wonderful lives there is everyday perfection.  Moments where time seems to stop, you take a picture in your mind, and promise yourself you will never forget. Everyday perfection.  It is my hope that I can inspire others to notice those moments of everyday perfection, capture them, document them and cherish them.

 

Odessa

Hi, I’m Odessa and I love all things colourful, fun and sparkly! I obsessively take photos and got into memory keeping as a way to get all those pictures of my family, adventures and too many cups of coffee off of my phone and in an album. My style can be best described as the 3 Cs – colour, collage and chaos. Beyond scrapbooking and photography I also enjoy camping and hiking, naps, and knitting – I co-own a yarn store. Being creative is basically my life!

I’m so happy to welcome these lovely ladies to our team. Please help me in giving them a warm welcome. Click on their names to visit their blogs. They are joining the rest of the amazing Freckled Fawn team which you can see under Meet Our Team above.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

Bible Journaling with Kim

Hello lovelies,

Kim here!

Today I played along with Freckled Fawn’s new sketch challenge for April. I love challenges: they take a whole lot of guess work into designing a layout AND it gives you an opportunity to use your fabulous kits!

For this month, I used my April Planner kit in my Journaling Bible.  To play along please check out the FF Blog post for all the details about entering!

Using those fabulous transparent frames, I highlighted the verse I wanted focus on, Isiah 52:1.

I then printed out my daffodil out on transparency paper. It makes the whole layout a little less heavy with a see through picture of this type, in my humble opinion.

I then used those fabulous purple velum letters from the April Kit along with the foiled cork stars!  I added a few more sentiments from the chipboard pieces and colored the black and white camera for added pizzazz on the page as well as fulfilling on the sketch layout description.

I hope you guys participate in this challenge.  Freebies are always a plus but…. having fun while creating are the sprinkles on the cupcake icing!

XO,

Kim

DIY Cord Organization | Freckled Fawn Washi Wednesday

Hey everyone!

Sami here to share a quick and easy way to keep your cords organized for easy use. I keep a surge protector near by nightstand in order to keep all my electronics charged, but it’s sometimes a challenge keeping track of which cord is which. So I decided to use a hack I’ve seen many times in many different ways on Pinterest. When I saw the April kit floral washi, I knew it would be perfect for this. Check it out in today’s video below!

Watch on YouTube

I hope you enjoyed this hack. I think it’s great because it makes it easy to see which cords you want to keep plugged in and which you’d like to unplug. Keeping cords unplugged when not in use can save money! I’m all for saving a penny when I can 🙂

Have a fun washi hack to share? Tag us @shopfreckledfawn on Instagram. We’d love to see how you are using your washi.

Have a lovely crafty day!

XO,
Sami
