When I first opened the August Embellishment Kit I knew it would be perfect for documenting our summer adventures! The quotes on the Wanderlust clear stickers and journal cards were just perfect. So when I sat down to put together this page I knew that it was the perfect page to use my new Frecked Fawn kit on!
Overall the page is very blue and green. Breezy blue water tones and lush green trees. We just went camping at one of my new favourite parks in our province and I was excited to get it in my weekly album! I usually just do one spread per week, but I gave this week an extra spread because there were too many good pictures. As I usually do, I started by picking the pictures I wanted to use and then some journal cards to go with it. I love the All About Love journal cards. The coordinate perfectly with the kit! I chose one of the quote cards, a card with some journaling space and one of the doily print cards to mount an Instax photo on.
This kit is so versatile. You could go feminine and delicate with it or all wild and free. I chose the latter. I even managed to incorporate one of the Vintage Doily Acetate Diecuts – I taped a green one down over the quote. I used the woodgrain washi a lot on this layout to tape pictures, embellishing and journaling down. I really wanted to use one of the clear quote stickers over a photograph but the picture was too dark. I remedied this by sticking the quote to some vellum and then cutting it out and taping it down to the photo so it would be legible. I also used one of the fabulous To Do clips on a photo to highlight some journaling.
I used another quote sticker on my final picture because it was just perfect sitting on the horizon line. I added one of the metal embellishments from the kit underneath it and journaled about the photo on one of the journal cards. In addition to the kit items I used some White Puffy Script Alphas and a chipboard piece from the June Summertime Chipboard Phrases that helped finish off the layout. Sticking to a soft blue/green colour palette really helped maintain what a beautiful and peaceful trip we had!
I’ve been trying to use a lot of products from my stash. I love re-discovering products because in a way they feel almost new. One of the items I’ve been trying to stash are the orange alphas from a Oh Deer Me Kit from 3 years ago! I managed to use them a bunch of times and I still have a bunch of letters!
Hi, lovelies! Niki back again with another layout using the August Embellishment kit and the All About Love Journal Cards. This is the fourth layout I have made with this kit and I didn’t have much leftover! I arranged the remaining acetate doilies onto my layout into a circle shape. The colours I had left were the pink and orange tones and white ones, so this immediately gave the layout a summery feel.
I added a large die-cut doily on top of my acetate doilies and stuck everything in place. My plan was to then add some machine stitching to some areas of the large die-cut doily but as I had overlapped my acetate doilies, together with two cardstock layers and the die cut, the layout was a bit thick and I broke two needles on my sewing machine! So my sewing machine is now out of action until replacement needles arrive and therefore there isn’t quite as much machine stitching as I had originally intended!
I added my photo on a stack together with some of the journaling cards. One of the cards I had cut the design from the middle but kept the edge so I covered this one in the Rose Gold Foiled Woodgrain Washi Tape and used it as one of the layers within my photo stack. Once my photo was in place, I added the pretty yellow doily flair badge, a Rose Gold To Do paper clip and some of the clear wanderlust quote stickers. I finished off by adding the remaining epoxy shapes and a fussy cut arrow and ‘love’ from one of the journaling cards.
Finally I handwrote in the word ‘swim’ in every loop of the doily and added some splatters of gold Color Shine spray.
I have made a process video of this layout which you can watch below:
I have definitely used the August Kit and Journal Cards to their full potential as I have nothing left other than one paperclip and the washi tape! I hope you’ve enjoyed my layouts and videos this month and I can’t wait for the next kit to arrive on my door mat!
I added strips of Rose Gold Woodgrain Washi to the top and bottom of the cards to pull them together. I loved that the tape played off of the metallic thread bits in the blanket and was a nod to Groot, as the blanket color scheme was based on a Guardians of the Galaxy poster!

I’m excited to share a scrapbook layout using the glorious August kit. This one was definitely inspired by the pretty floral and woodgrain elements in the kit.
I wanted to tell a story about a few of the cozy shops my bestie and I visited on a weekend vacation and talk about the comfort of that activity, so I really tried to create a really warm and inviting page. I picked out the woodgrain washi and wood veneer pieces and decided to fussy cut a floral patterned paper to accent them.
The acetate doilies were another great way to bring in the feel of a thrift shop or used book store and I liked the circular element they added. I decided to add in some more circular elements by putting some of the clear stickers on white cardstock and punching them out.
The adventure phrases worked perfectly with my story and that made me super happy. 🙂 I combined some chipboard letters with my favorite Freckled Fawn puffy alphabet stickers for my title and added journaling strips in the space below it.
If you want to see how it all came together, watch the process video!
I am crazy about these Large Acetate Numbers! I love the extra texture when you can see the pattern from the background. On top, I added the White Puffy Script Alpha Stickers. At the bottom, I used some of my favorite Emoji Wood Veneers. I’ve been neglecting my wood veneers so I put a bunch of them in a pretty bowl on my table and it really motivated me to use them!
These alphas are from the very first Oh Deer Me Kit I got! I love them and lucky me I can still form a few words with them. I’m really trying to use my stash.
