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.

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!

XO,

Sami

Miss You Already Process Video by Jen

Hey there! Jen Schow here to share with you a layout I created inspired by the Washi Tape sketch challenge.

Some of the other designers have created some sketch inspiration for you  so I’ll tack their lovely projects onto the end of my post.

The sketch shows a large heart covered in washi and I decided to take that idea and apply it to my title.

I cut out my letters on my Silhouette and then used the washi strips included in the February kit to cover them. It’s a super fun way to get an interesting look and use up some of the washi in your stash. 🙂

I also used some of the Love Journal cards and cut the orange florals from them. LOVE that floral motif. So pretty!

The little button stickers were the perfect finishing touch. I ended up threading them with a bit of crochet twine and popped them up. So cute!

You can see how it all came together in the video below.

Watch on YouTube

Full disclosure, I thought I was doing the Washi Tape challenge, but I didn’t realize it had a sketch (hanging my head in shame), so I mention it in the video. Either way, I hope you’ll try something fun using your washi!

And now for some more sketch inspiration:

Kristina created washi triangles.

Kim added washi to her heart background on this bible journaling page:

Megan created a washi heart for her layout:

Sami created a heart with a diagonal stripe on her layout:

Planner Kits for Pocket Pages by Megan

Hello everyone! It’s Megan here to share how I used this month’s planner kit on a pocket spread.

I love using Freckled Fawn’s planner kits on pocket spreads–they have just enough embellishments in them to jazz up a simple spread.

I also used silver foil labels from the April 2016 embellishment kit.

This year I’m adding in extra event spreads between my weekly spreads in my pocket scrapbook. Today I’m sharing a spread about a birthday party for my two oldest kids.

There were lots of clashing colors going on in the photos for this spread. I originally tried to pull some bright colors from the kids’ cake and presents for the cards, but it wasn’t really working. So I decided that using neutral cards and colorful embellishments was a better way to go.

I wanted the adorable photos of the kids and the many photos showing our extended family to shine, so I opted for minimal embellishments on this thread. Embellishing a bit here and there is a great way to stretch your kit!

To make a filler card a title card, I centered an epoxy heart sticker and drew a black border around it so it would stand out more against the busy patterned background. I added a silver foil label on either side to add info about the event and the date. I finished it off with puffy border stickers on the top and bottom.

I used labels to describe what’s going on in a few of the photos and added stickers from the washi book on either side of the journaling space on a card to add more color.

On the right page, I included my favorite photo of each kid opening presents, two photo collages of pictures of our family (plus the cake), and photos of our family playing Twister after the party was over. All I added on this side was a few planner stickers!

Nesting circle stickers into circles on cards is a go-to for me. I love overlapping the sticker a bit and cutting of the excess.

I also added a planner sticker into the center of each photo collage page. When I made these collages, I made sure to arrange the photos to ensure that there was plenty of room and the stickers wouldn’t cover anything important in the photos!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I used the planner kit to create a simple pocket scrapbooking spread! Do you use planner kits for pocket scrapbooking too? I’d love to see how!

XO,

Megan

Feb Traveler’s Notebook Spread by Evelyn

Hello Lovelies.  Evelyn here!

So I decided to use a Travel Notebook to do memory keeping this year. Yup the size is perfect, not too small so I can do fast scrapping in a TN. Plus it’s trendy now and there’s not just one specific system for memory keeping, so yeah it’s up to us to decide.

I used the Freckled Fawn February Embellishment Kit plus the Feb planner kit in this spread. I love love love the vellum words that you can find in the kits.

Enjoy the details.

XO,

Evelyn
