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

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

Cuddled with Wes Layout by Jen

Hi lovelies, Jen here!

This week I’m sharing my project based on the April Sketch Challenge. I love working from sketches. It’s such a great jumping off point and I can always make it work with what I have. I swapped out the single photo for two smaller photos and I’m really happy with how this came out!

I painted the wood veneer arrow from the April embellishment kit with white acrylic paint and added a word sticker (from February’s kit) and one of those glorious puffy cameras!

The wonky chipboard circles from the kit worked perfectly for my photos and I added a yellow acetate frame – which I cut in half to stretch my supplies – in the top right and bottom left.

Hope you’ll give this sketch a try! I had lots of fun with it. 🙂

XO,
Jen

Zoo LE Layout by Sandra

Hi and welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I’m sharing a scrapbook layout inspiration with the wonderful April Embellishment Kit. When I received the kit, I immediately fell in love with the floral pouch and the colorful acrylic frames. I totally wanted to use the white frames and decided that they would best be staged on a dark background. I built the layout from bottom to top. First, I cut out a photo from a visit to Leipzig Zoo.

Then I placed the photo on top of one of the white acrylic frames and started to decorate all the way to the top of the layout by using some of the cute chipboard stickers, three wooden shapes and one of the cool camera puffy stickers that are in the kit.

I placed the journaling in the top white frame – a nice way to use the acrylic frames. I also added the layout title to one of the cool wooden arrow shapes with the alpha stickers from the kit.

I totally adore the chipboard sticker saying ‘makes me happy’. Isn’t it cute?

I’m hoping you like my inspiration today.

Have fun creating,

XO,
Sandra
