Traditionally I like to scrap in 12×12 size and therefore I have done exactly that but also incorporated a sheet of the 8.5×11” paper. The patterns are super gorgeous and I chose one of the more subtle ones to add to the left side of my layout.
I cut an Autumn themed cut file out of white card, and backed each aperture with the Journal cards or patterned papers. This is a technique I really love as it brings in lots of colour, pattern and interest to a layout. Once filled I added this cut file to my layout.
I the positioned one of the Journal cards to the right side of my layout – I often use journal cards as layers under my photo or cut bits from them but on this occasion I have used the card in it’s entirely, as a feature on the layout. I just loved the cute ‘Autumn’ letters and their arrangement, so cute!
I embellished the layout using lots of lovely things from the October Embellishment kit: those golden leaves add such a gorgeous pop of gold to the layout. I used a number of stickers from the chipboard sheet, as well as the wooden buttons and gold infused Cork Stickers and some of the labels.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my layout, what Autumn themed things will you make with the October kit?
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!
It‘s Lisa on the blog today!
I‘m sharing a layout that I made with the super cute, fall-coloured October kit.
I was so excited when we were told that we were going to get patterned papers in the kit… LOVE!!! 🙂
So the main focus in this layout is on the leaves. I cut them with my silhouette machine and then backed them with the different papers. Then I arranged them in a sort of grid design.
I then pretty much used a bit of all the embellishments from the kit to put on or under the leaves… puffy heart stickers, wood buttons, cork stickers… and the adorable gold leaves and October wood veneer!!!
I finished the layout with some red and gold sprinkles of color and the cute garden gnome that I had in my stash and that fit in there perfectly! 🙂
I hope you like it and if you wanna see exactly how I did everything, just check out the process video on YouTube coming soon!
Thank you guys

Hi friends! It’s Jen Schow here with a layout + process video using the October kit. I love this kit like crazy and was so happy to be able to include the first Freckled Fawn patterned papers on my layout!
I knew right away that I wanted to use the wood veneer “October” + the cardstock letter stickers for my title. I also knew I wanted to incorporate all of those gold leaves. So I decided to add a bit of gold to my title with a DecoFoil pen + gold foil. I just did it on half the word for a modern look and I like how it is a bit imperfect. It looks distressed and I like it!
I added all of the leaves on the bottom of my photo kind of haphazardly. Because I wanted to overlap them, I peeled them off of the white wire they came on. You can also see that I punched circles out of the heart paper and used them as embellishments on my layout along with some of the puffy hearts and wood buttons.
I used almost all of the blank speech bubble stickers for my journaling, kind of bouncing them back and forth to the left side of my photo. I kind of love when I can use a bunch of something to make an impact.
If you want to see how it all came together, please watch my process video! I have loved seeing all of your projects using this kit this month!
Hello everyone! It’s Megan here and every year I get really excited for Halloween! One way I harness that excitement into productivity before the holiday is going back and catching up Halloween moments I haven’t documented yet! Right now that’s Halloween 2016 and, lucky me, the Freckled Fawn October kit seemed like it was made to match my family’s costumes last year.
I really love the photo of my kids and I together, so I decided to combine a 12×12 traditional page with a pocket page so I could include both a large 8.5×11 print of my favorite photo and lots of additional photos too.
My home printer’s largest print capability is 8.5 x 11 inches, so I designed the traditional side of the page around that photo size. I grabbed two of the Freckled Fawn October 8.5×11 papers that happened to match the kids’ costumes perfectly–the red hearts (Same color as Ava’s Little Red Riding Hood!) and green plaid (The same as Jonas’s werewolf shirt!) to use on the four inches remaining on the left side of the page after I added the photo.
I thought I might use the white space underneath the photo for journaling, but decided a card from the October journaling cards on top of the green plaid would be better balanced. So I decided to add a strip of washi from the September kit to get in more of the black vampire Eliza and I were wearing with a partial strip of plaid scallop chipboard sticker.
I knew right away I wanted to add the “10 October” chipboard sticker to the upper left corner, but I still felt this page needed a little more pizzaz. I decided to add puffy heart stickers to every heart in the pattern, offset to the right.
I started the journaling on this journaling card and continued it on a journaling card on the pocket side. I decided to cover up the phrase on this card with a chipboard sticker to tie it to the pattern on its companion journaling card.
The journaling reads:
“This Halloween, the kids opted for scary costumes. Eliza was a vampire–things she found in the play clothes and new plastic fangs. Jonas loved a werewolf costume. We thought Ava would be a witch, but the Little Red Riding Hood costume Jake found was too perfect with Jonas’s wolf. She thought the scary costumes were so funny. They all had a blast trick or treating in our neighborhood!”
My husband made sure to take these family and individual shots of us in costumes before it got dark. It was dark by the time we were trick or treating, but I still love the blurry photo of them going up to a neighbor’s door. I also made sure to grab a shot of my favorite house in the neighborhood–they have a haunted path to the back! I made sure to note what that photo was about with a label sticker. Including a pocket page to show off more details and a traditional page to highlight a favorite was a perfect way to tell this story!
I kept the pocket page very simple, but a pumpkin Autumn cork sticker in the middle of a card helped to support the Halloween theme, since I went with a costume-centered color scheme instead of a traditional Halloween-y vibe.
Do you dress up for Halloween or other events or holidays? How do you document your costumes?
Hi! Odessa here with a 6×12 pocket page full of fall-y goodness using the October Freckled Fawn Kit. Anyone else loving those new papers? They are so gorgeous and go perfectly with the kits. I cut out a 4×6 card from one of them for the top pocket on this page. This layout is a little insert in my weekly pocket page album from a fall hike we went on.
I cut down one of the papers to make a 4×6 card and attached one of my favourite photos from the day to it. I added on the October wood veneer because it’s just so pretty. I finished it up with some word stickers and one of the chipboard stickers to make a good title card. And a cute puffy heart of course!
For the rest of the pockets I had 3 photos and then used one of the coordinating journal cards this month. They’re a great mix of cute cards and cards with space for journalling which was just what I needed on this page. The colours all go so well together that it was easy to pick one to pop in my layout and get some writing on.
I embellished my pictures with a mix of word stickers, those oh-so-useful label stickers to get some more words down. The word stickers are great for emphasizing something – I used them to talk about how spooky the woods were. Once I got all those words down (there are a lot for me on this page) I added a few cute things. Some more heart stickers, chipboard pieces and one of those adorable wood button stickers. I’ve already said this, but this month’s kit coordinates so well! I could use anything I loved from this kit and it would all work well together which made this layout so easy to put together.
Have a lovely day!
