Summer Vibes Mini Album by Kristin

Hello lovelies, Kristin here!

I absolutely adore the numbers in the June kit, I wanted to use them on every single project. But when I have a special product, I almost always turn to a mini-album in order to show it off.

This mini-album is constructed with 3×4″ journaling cards, 3×4″ clear paper (acetate), 3×4 photos, Freckled Fawn numbers, a hole punch, and a binder ring.

I had a bunch of fun photos from last summer, some of which I had put in my big scrapbook album, and some of which I hadn’t gotten around to scrapbooking at all. I liked that they all had the same theme of summer, but each had a short story to tell on their own.

To create this album, I created a mini-album stack — which is just a bunch of layers repeated on top of each other. For this album the stack was (from top to bottom): Freckled Fawn number, acetate page, photograph, journaling card, repeat.

After stamping a single hole in each page, I gave the cover a cute title sentiment and added the binder ring through each of the pages, completing my summer mini-album.

I hope you enjoyed my project for today.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Kristin

Apple Festival Layout by Nicole

Hello Lovelies!
Nicole here and today I’m sharing a quick two page layout featuring the June Kit!
This kit is is packed full of beautiful summery embellishments! I honestly could not pick a favorite this month! Take a quick look!!!….
 However, I’m winding down to the last bits of my kit already…yes, you heard me correctly…LAST pieces!  It’s so sad!!!  This has been one of my absolute favorites by far!  With that being said, I had a lot of oranges and the black embellishments left over…so that inspired me to use those for some fall layouts!  What a multi purpose kit!!!  Here are the two layouts I created…

I just love how those chipboard phrases fit literally any layout, any season!  …And I loved those puffy camera stickers so much I had to bring them back again! LOL!
I encourage you to go thru your past Freckled Fawn kits and see what colors may inspire you for different seasons than when the kits were released! You may be surprised and find that there is still lots of bits waiting to make it to your next layouts!
Thanks so much for joining me today!
XO,
Nicole

June Scrapbook Layout by Lisa

Hey guys,
It’s Lisa on the blog today.

I’m sharing this layout with you.

This layout is about me, my sister and my brother! I absolutely wanted to use those super cute acetate numbers… it took me quite some time to figure out how I could use more than just one or two… but finally, I had an idea! I calculated approximately how many hours the three of us “knew” each other… or in other words, how many hours my brother was already in this world with us 😉


He’s 21 years and 3 months old… But I cheated a bit… I wanted to use that 7, because it’s so cute, with the hearts :), so I changed the last two numbers a bit… who cares when it looks good right?! 🙂

So to start this page, I put a bit of gesso in the middle, with a palette knife, then did a bit of mixed media with some sprays!

I used the Freckled Fawn washi strips to put over and under the picture and topped them with the numbers.

I matted the photo on a few pieces of patterned paper and stuck it between the numbers!

Here, I was finally able to use that gorgeous flower wood veneer we had in the may kit! I cut it in half and embossed it in gold, then put the two pieces on both sides of the photo.

Almost done! But the best part… I used my new We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy machine for the first time!!! Yay! I stitched over the numbers and around the page with gold thread… love it! 😉

To finish the layout, I used some Freckled Fawn embellishments! The cute enamel hearts, the chipboard words, the acrylic speech bubble and the puffy alphas!

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Lisa

Last Day of School Layout by Nicole

Hello Lovelies!
Nicole here and today I have a super fun layout using the June 2017 Freckled Fawn embellishment kit!
This month, it contains these super cute large acetate numbers with the cutest colors and patterns! When I received my kit, they caught my eye right off the bat and the perfect project came to mind…I wanted to celebrate my two crazy kiddos on their last day of school.  Here’s a close up of the final layout…

I started by arranging the acetate numbers towards the bottom of my layout. I knew they would be a larger focal point. After I had those down, I had an idea of where I wanted the photo to go and began layering pieces of the washi tape strips that came in the kit. They coordinate perfect with the various colors and patterns…and I finally got to use my favorite strip! It’s the one that helped inspire this layout with the circles and alphabet letters on it. Once the washi strips were down, I applied a light layer of gesso so I could add some shimmer mists for splashes of color.

Once those layers were all dry, I added in the chip board phrases, enamel hearts and some puffy stickers and faces from past Freckled Fawn kits.  I also finished my title by using last months awesome yellow alpha’s and added “Last day of school.”  Finally, I adhered my photo on foam adhesive for dimension and added in that really cute square clip.  Here are some more close ups of the finished project:

Thanks so much for joining me today!
Be sure to check out the June Freckled Fawn kit HERE!!
Have a colorful day!

Project Life Week 9 & 10 by Jennie

Hey Everyone! This is Jennie! Today I’m sharing these pocket pages I made using Project Life cards and products from Freckled Fawn. The majority of the Oh Deer Me Kits are very fun and bright so they go perfect with these cards.
When I started my Freckled Fawn addiction I was all about the washi but now the alpha stickers are way up there with washi!

Another thing I love is enamel dots! When they are shaped like these Enamel Hearts Stickers I get crazy excited! This week was really busy with lots of colors and photos! Sometimes I go a little overboard so I stopped myself before it was way too busy!

In this title card I managed to put all my favorite things: washi tape, puffy alphas, enamel hearts and word stickers.

Whenever I run out of letters I have to get creative. I love these Yellow Puffy Script Alpha Stickers but I ran out of e’s so I turned a “w” to the side.

Sometimes I like to leave white spaces in my photos so I can add embellishments in my project life spread. The Yellow Puffy Script Alpha Stickers are from the May Oh Deer Me Kit but the rest of the embellishments I used are from the June Embellishment Kit. I like how I can mix everything from my kits with items I already own or want to buy.

I love acetate pieces and Freckled Fawn makes them so well! These Large Acetate Numbers are super cute! I like the colors, patterns and 70’s vibe. To glue this ampersand I used the Tombow MONO Aqua Liquid Glue.

Speaking of gorgeous acetate pieces, I loved these Acetate Frames from the April Kit. In the last layout I made I only used them in photos but they framed the “Enjoy the Ride” card so well! I might need to get a second pack because I already used the white and light blue frames.

Kids’ drawings are a really good way to demonstrate in which stage kids are right now. If you don’t have kids you can ask the important kids in your life to make a portrait of you. Kids always focus on one thing about you and the rest fits their aesthetic. For example, my daughter always draws me with glasses.
I hope you enjoyed these pages and some of the ideas I showed! Remember to share your creations with us in the Freckled Fawn Fanatics Facebook Group.
Have a lovely day!
XO,
Jennie

Two June Projects from Niki

Sneak peeks have begun & this month we are changing things up! Check our Instagram @shopfreckledfawn for sneaky peeks of the July Freckled Fawn kits!

Hello everyone, Niki here today to share two layouts made with the June embellishment kit.

PICTURE PERFECT LAYOUT
This layout was completely inspired by the sticky half-pearls. I loved how they appeared on the backing sheet, in blocks of turquoise-green, white and silver so set about making my layout reflect this.

I cut a dotty cut file from a sheet of white card. I then took a second piece of white card and painted it in blocks using metallic paint. I used turquoise-green, white and silver paints to match the pearls. Once dry I stuck the dotty cut file over the top of the painted background so the blocks of colour shone through the holes. I used foam pads to raise the top layer so there was some depth to my layout. I then added all the sticky pearls from the sheet through the holes onto their corresponding colour. There wasn’t enough pearls to add one to every hole but the effect looks great.

Once my background was ready I could then add my photo and my embellishments. I picked out all green, blue and white tones from the embellishment kit and began adding them to my page. I kept the photo and most of the embellishments in a block to mimic the rest of the layout. I love that big blue bow and the acrylic title went brilliantly with my photo. I used the washi strips, arrows and circles, as well as the enamel hearts and chipboard words.

I finished off my layout by adding a few tone on tone embellishments to the rest of the layout with some stitching detail and added a journaling border around the edge of the layout. I loved how this one turned out as it’s a bit different from my usual style and the block colours look great!

 

SO MUCH FUN LAYOUT
For this layout I cut a circle cut file out of pink patterned paper. I stuck this onto a white cardstock background and then mounted that on a busy colourful chevron print. The circle cut file has been raised on foam pads to give the layout dimension and also to provide places to tuck things under.

The circle cut file had some clouds on it and I built on that by fussy-cutting some more clouds out of another patterned paper. I layered these on the three areas together with a large ampersand sign from the acetate numbers set, and also added my photo.

With the base of my layout complete I could then start embellishing. I loved the three colours of the enamel hearts in this month’s embellishment kit so choose to highlight those on this layout.

I added a few chipboard circles from last month’s embellishment kit that were the right colours and then began adding the enamel hearts. I also added some washi arrows and a circle. I finished off by doodling some hearts and cutting some tiny hearts out of one of the washi strips and finally I added a few splatters of yellow water colour paint.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my layouts, happy scrapping!

XO,
Niki

Two June Projects by Kristin

Hello lovelies, Kristin here!

I’ve got two projects to share with you. Both of these were made with the June embellishment kit. The first is my take on the June sketch challenge. There are only a couple more days to play along.

 

A Story About My Favorite Place
I absolutely loved the colors of this month’s kit. I thought it was perfect to help me document a story about my favorite place on the planet — The Temple of Dundur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
For my title, I used a large alphabet stamp and black ink to stamp the letters ‘met’, I added the word ‘the’ in my own handwriting above it. I added the orange arrow sticker from the washi strip tape to the right of the title, pointing upwards at my photo, towards my embellishment cluster.
To create the journaling lines, I carefully trimmed one of the striped washi tape lines, so that each line only had a single strip. I then cut down each strip so that it would fit inside the notebook, leaving a little bit of room on both sides.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Port Aransas layout by Megan

Hi everyone, it’s Megan! I’m kicking off summer scrapbooking with an awesome beach 1.5 page layout.

The June 2017 Freckled Fawn Kit has a color palette perfect for sunny days and beach / pool time.

After reading all of the beach phrases on the chipboard phrase stickers, I knew right away I wanted to make a page about taking the kids to a beach for the first time last summer.

I’ve been saving this patterned paper specifically for a beach project.

I decided to put the two together to make a 1 1/2 page spread. I used the paper for inspiration, getting in tons of small 1.5 inch photos in the squares on the pattern and using two 3 inch photos to break up the pattern a bit. (Click on the photo for an enlarged view.)

I started off just doing a 12×12, but liked how it looked without journaling (it’s busy enough!), so I made a 6×12 companion page to go with it. I added some more of the patterned paper to the edge and used grid patterned paper from the same line for journaling. I’m going to use the other side of the paper to go with a pocket page highlighting the rest of this vacation.

There are 23 photos on this page overall! The tiny size of most of the photos works really well, because most of these were taken with a GoPro and weren’t the highest quality. It also helped me include details of what the town of Port Aransas looks like as well as an overview of the things we did at the beach.

Because the paper is so busy, I wanted to be very intentional about how I used the embellishments so that they’d help move the eye around the page and highlight important parts instead of adding more clutter.

I used washi stickers to frame the title and to the bottom of the journaling space, then added pearl stickers to fill in the empty spaces around the word “Port” in the title. I also added a washi “Pretty Much Perfect” sticker to the top right corner. I backed it with white cardstock, cut it out, then glued it on so that it would be visible above the pattern.

I added phrase stickers throughout the spread (seven–it’s always good to stick with an odd number) and added two pearls near each phrase.

And to finish it off, the “summer vibes” acrylic phrase fit perfectly over one of the bigger photos!

I had a lot of fun trying a different kind of design for this layout and I’m happy to have this done–I wanted to scrap so many of the photos from this day that I was a little overwhelmed. This was a great solution!

Do you have any beach trips you’d like to document? If not, how would you use these beachy supplies?

XO,
Megan
