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

Ten Things Traveler’s Notebook Mini Album by Kristin

Hey Fawns! rukristin here today sharing a traveler’s notebook mini-album I made for my partner for Valentine’s Day.

Each Valentine’s I make him a small album of my favorite photos of us together over the last year. I keep the journaling simple and to the point with single sentence reasons why I love him.

I modified a Traveler’s Notebook to give myself room for ten pages of photos & journaling, a big centerpiece page, and then a front and back cover. I did this by taking out a few of the center pages and then gluing pages back to back. Which conveniently makes them much stronger as well.

On each page, I stamped a number onto one of the button stickers from the February kit. I added a photo from my Polaroid Zink portable printer. I added a simple sheet of patterned paper on the opposite page (I rotated four patterns throughout the album).

One of my favorite techniques to use in a mini-album, is to create a centerpiece page. There are so many pages and photos and bits of journaling throughout a mini-album, that I hate when I get bogged down with tons of embellishments everywhere. I always feel like my pages are competing with each other when that happens.

For my centerpiece page in this album, I chose the center of the album, and used phrase stickers from the February kit to create a patterned paper like background. I opted for a strong contrast with big bold black foam letters.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my album.
XO,
Kristin

Monthly Planning with Kim

Hi there! Kim here!

Not to long ago I was thinking….Can I plan for the whole month using only 1 Freckled Fawn Kit?

The answer is Yes-ish!

What I mean is that I also received a 2 additional items from the planner kit: the pretty paper stickers and the puffy border stickers.

Planner kit
Embellishment kit

 

BUT,  I did not use the wood veneer heart or one of the vellum phrase sheets.  So it kind of evened out!

After I set up the front of the divider, I jazzed up the back.

Then I used the borders between the washi strips  to underline the header for each mission.  Then using the foiled epoxy speckled hearts ,  I created a tab for the month.

When it came to the month spread, I used a scalloped shape to nestle those button stickers in. I also used the leftover backing sheet from the glitter chipboard stickers to create stencil and make headers or my banner flags on three of the days.

For this week I did a plan with me video, that you are more than welcome to enjoy.  I used the stencil one again to create the feathers this time to denote the weekend.

Watch on YouTube

To mimic a notes section I divided off Monday to use it as such and then filled in with other ephemera to balance the spread.

I’m not sure why I’ve never tried this but I did section off each day with the washi strip borders.  It really is a great use for those last little bits of kit!

The next week I just did two corners of washi on Monday and Friday to balance out the week.

The notes and rambling section is sectioned off to help designate categories I will use.  Meeting notes, the month ahead thoughts and meal planning ideas are a great way to not waste that extra space in your planner.

Lastly, the focus page where I have laid out monthly goals and created daily habits. I may not have a focus for the month, but I really like the way this pretty little corner turned out to be.

I do have a video walk through  where I talk more in depth about this monthly project.  It is also embedded below!

Thank you for joining me today!

Kim

Love Scrapbook Layout by Autour

Hey everyone! Today Autour has a gorgeous February kit project to share.

He added one of the chipboard shapes over the photo.and layered it with one of the feathers off the washi book strip.

He added some ink splatters around his page & some of the splatters are on the button sticker, which looks really neat!

I love how he fussy cut around those washi feathers & added them to the page. They look really striking like that.

Autour did a lot of layering on this layout. The chipboard banner, title, and the star sticker made for some visually appealing layers.

I hope you enjoyed this gorgeous layout. Tomorrow Kim will be back with some planner inspiration for you.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

Smile for Me Layout by Soraya

Hi lovelies,

Soraya has some gorgeous eye candy to share with you today. She made this beauty using the February Embellishment kit along with some older kit embellishments.

Here’s a closer look at the beautiful Feb chipboard banner she made using some past kit rhinestones and some twine.Her title was made with a die cut & some cork alphas from a past kit. I really love how she had the title on the diagonal.

Here are some more closeups. The layering on this layout is absolutely stunning.

I hope you enjoyed seeing Soraya‘s layout today. Have a lovely day!

XO,

Sami

Hello Hermes Layout by Megan

Hello everyone! It’s Megan! I was so excited when I saw the feather and love motif in this month’s February 2017 Freckled Fawn embellishment kit kit! I knew immediately that I wanted to start documenting our new bird, Hermes.

Of course, the feathers are great even if you don’t have an avian friend, feathers can be good for documenting love (think “birds of a feather flock together,” “our nest,” or even “you ruffle my feathers”).

I love all of the colors in the kit–it gave me so many options! But sometimes options are overwhelming. If you are having trouble choosing which elements from a kit to use, try just picking two or three colors and sticking with those. This can also help you get out of the mindset of the kit’s theme (February’s kit isn’t just for Valentine’s Day!). For my layout, I choose to use mostly the teal with a few pops of pink.

I had fun making this layout on the diagonal, using a combo of photos and pocket scrapbooking cards for big “stripes” and embellishments from the kit for smaller stripes. I added two teal “love” strips from the washi booklet across the middle, a pink feather washi strip in opposite corners, and finished the corners off with puffy border stickers.

This is a really easy design to scraplift and can be used with lots of different photo size variations!

I used the vellum phrase stickers as a border for this card and added an epoxy heart in the center–which meant that some of the sticker went off the edge of the page and was cut off. Epoxy takes some force to cut through and sometimes the piece you cut off will go flying, so be careful!

I added two button stickers and a feather chipboard sticker to a journaling card. The feathers can be used like arrows, pointing in the direction you want the viewer’s eye to travel on the page.

I finished off the page with the big wooden “I love you” heart in the middle of a feather card!

I’m so happy with this first page about Hermes and I know I’ll be making tons more.

Do you document your pets? How about using this month’s kit as a love layout for your feathered, furry, or gilled friend? I’d love to see what you make!

XO,

Megan

The Best Layout by Soraya

Happy Saturday!

Today, the lovely Soraya has some February embellishment kit inspiration for you.

She created this amazing background using the Freckled Fawn journaling cards. Some of these are February cards and some are past month cards.

She used many of the February kit items to embellish: washi book, chipboard shapes, puffy borders, wood heart, and vellum phrases. She also used past kit items too. I love the combo of old and new products on this one.

Here’s a closer look at her title: The Best, which was made with a wood chip. So pretty!

Look at all those beautiful layers!

Be sure to stop by Soraya’s blog to see even more of her gorgeous creations!
