Three Layouts by Niki

Hello lovelies!

Niki here with you today sharing three layouts made with the May embellishment kit.

GIVEAWAY
Leave us a comment on any of our blog posts over the next week & be entered to win a June Freckled Fawn kit (winner’s choice of Embellishment or Planner kit). The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win! One winner will be chosen on the 1st & announced with the June kit reveal.

For my first layout ‘funny bunnies’ I used a large heart cut file which I drew around lightly in pencil on my background sheet.

I then used my water colours to add splashes of colour that would show once the heart was back in place. I used colours picked out from the May embellishment kit and I added flicks of the same paints too. Once dry I put the heart back in place, raised up on foam pads so that it gave dimension to my layout but also so I could tuck things under it. I then added my photo and embellished with the May Embellishment kit. The vellum butterflies were beautifully soft and pretty and went perfectly with this soft layout.

 

For my second layout ‘Happy’ I also used a cut file.

The pinks and purples I used on the papers went really well with those colours in the May Embellishment kit. I painted the wood veneer flower with a pink paint as well as the border strip along the bottom. The umbrella is a cut file and I painted that in silver paint. I then positioned everything onto my layout and added in anything purple or pink from the May embellishment kit – the chipboard, speech bubbles, the rainbow paper clip and a vellum butterfly. I’ve also used the floral washi from a previous embellishment kit.

And finally, my third layout is based on the May sketch.

It’s a bright, happy layout using lots of the different elements from the May embellishment kit. My photo was the wrong way around but I still managed to make it work with the sketch by adding in a journaling card. I love that rainbow button, it’s so cute! And the yellow alpha, I’m completely in love with.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my layouts. Have a beautiful day

XO,
Niki

Hello Tooth Fairy Layout by Nicole

Hello lovelies!

Nicole here!

GIVEAWAY
Leave us a comment on any of our blog posts over the next week & be entered to win a June Freckled Fawn kit (winner’s choice of Embellishment or Planner kit). The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win! One winner will be chosen on the 1st & announced with the June kit reveal. Be sure to follow us on Instagram & Facebook to catch even more sneak peeks this week.

Today I want to share with you a super fast and simple layout featuring items from the May Embellishment kit. I really wanted the focus of this layout to be the beautiful wood veneer that was included in the kit. I was going for a very clean and simple look overall. To keep with the clean feel, I chose to use white embossing powder on the piece so it would blend in better with my background. Also included in the kit are these adorable floral clear daisy and butterfly stickers! I just love them because of how well they blend in with the background!
I added in some yellow spritz behind the wood piece before I glued it down. Once I had it and the floral stickers all in place, I filled in the little gap at the bottom left of my photo with an epoxy clip and 3 of the chipboard stickers all from the kit as well.
Lastly, I added my title and the green star dimensional stickers. The “hello.” is a scrap piece of paper I had in my stash. I added “tooth fairy” with the new white puffy alphas from the store (because this was my son’s very first tooth he lost) and enamel stars from the Freckled Fawn Shop. And that was it! Super simple!
Thank you so much for joining me today!
I hope you have a save and happy Memorial Day weekend!
XO,
Nicole

10 Reasons Layout by Jen

Hey there, it’s Jen and I’m here to share a layout using the May kits.

GIVEAWAY
Leave us a comment on any of our blog posts over the next week & be entered to win a June Freckled Fawn kit (winner’s choice of Embellishment or Planner kit). The more posts you comment on, the more chances you have to win! One winner will be chosen on the 1st & announced with the June kit reveal.

I am in love with this month’s embellishments! I picked out all of the purple and yellow and created a layout.

Since we just had Mother’s Day, I thought it would be fun to create a “10 Reasons I love being your Mom” layout. I used the new white puffy alphas for most of my title. Swoon!

That wood veneer floral was calling my name. I painted it with some Soft Lilac acrylic paint to match the embellishments and it’s just so pretty!

I added a few acetate speech bubbles, chipboard pieces, clear stickers, and enamel dots to finish everything off.

If you want to see how this layout came together, check out the process video!

Have a lovely day!

Jen

Simple Washi Planner Decorating | Washi Wednesday

Hello lovelies!

Sami here bringing you another Washi Wednesday!

Today I thought I would show you a super quick look into my planner. I’ve been using an Inkwell Press Planner for 2017 & today I did a bit of washi decorating using the gorgeous new May washi. This washi is available in the store now individually and as part of the May Planner kit & May Embellishment kit.

Sneak peeks for June officially start tomorrow, but I have a super cute sneak peek in today’s video 🙂

Watch on YouTube

I love how washi adds a beautiful decorative touch to my planner without adding any extra bulk to the page.

I’d love to see how you use washi in your planner. Be sure to tag us on Instagram @shopfreckledfawn & share your projects in our Freckled Fawn Fanatics group.

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Sami

My Baby Boy Layout by Soraya

Hello lovelies,

Soraya has a beautiful layout to share with you today. She used the May embellishment kit for this one.

She broke apart the wood chip from the May kit and used it on different areas of her layout. The effect is absolutely stunning!

She built up some beautiful layering with the hearts & various embellishments from the kit. I love the way she has the title coming out of one of the heart shapes.

I hope you enjoyed looking at Soraya’s lovely work today.

Have a lovely day!

Traveler’s Notebook on the Go with Megan

Hello lovelies,

Megan here!

I just took a trip to San Antonio, and I brought my May Kit and traveler’s notebook with me so I could make a few pages on the go! I ended up finishing most of the album when I got home so I could print out photos, but I made one spread while traveling using a business card and an Instax photo.

Because the card and the photo were a similar size, I decided to go with basically the same design on both pages, but flipped so they would mirror each other.

The flowers in each corner, trimmed off of the edge of the page, help anchor the rest so all of the elements aren’t just floating in the middle.

I love the White Puffy Stickers on the white background. Framing the words with minimal embellishments helps make them stand out!

I really wanted to use the days of the week washi from the kit, but I wanted a longer strip than just the word Friday, I used chipboard sticker for journaling and to cover up the other days of the week.I also could have cut out and repeated “Friday” or circled / framed it, but this was a good quick solution!

I love how cute this spread came out with limited supplies! I decided to carry on and use just photos, words, and the May kit for the rest of the album. You can see the rest here.

Do you scrapbook in traveler’s notebooks on the go?

Have a lovely day!

XO,
Megan

Project Life with Odessa

Hello lovelies,

Odessa here!

When my May Embellishment kit showed up I was so excited. The colours are so me. I just love pops of yellow, magenta, lavenders and minty greens. It’s my colour happy place. I had to pull it out and put it together with pictures right away. I had just got some pictures printed for my weekly pocket page album so I was ready to get busy! I pulled out some journal cards that matched the colours and the kit and got to work.

When I pulled out all the elements in the kit I knew I had to use that wood piece! It’s just so pretty! I decided to make it the focal point of the layout. I gave it a wash of white with a chalk marker and mounted it on a journal card. I had to trim it down just a bit to fit the 3×4 size but it’s perfect!

I just LOVED the little speech bubbles in the kit! They are so much fun! I love adding word stickers and embellishments to layouts for emphasis and these were pretty perfect. And those colours! I used them across the layout to create some harmony.

Another thing I used for some harmony was the washi. The mint washi with the pretty scripted days of the week is so nice! I put it on a few pictures to pull things together and get some time context in there. And because it’s cute!!!

I think of everything in the kit, my favourite was the yellow alphas. Yellow alphabets are my favourite, and these might just be my favourite yet. They’re really easy to use and position which I like – I love when you can flex an alpha sticker a little to make it fit just right. The yellow just pops! It was great for emphasizing a couple of words throughout my layout.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you got a dose of inspiration.

XO,
Odessa

Decorative Gifts by Sandra

Welcome to the FF blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and the May Embellishment Kit inspired me to make some happy tags and a treat bag.

I store them in a box and whenever a birthday or celebration is coming up, I look into the box. It’s definitely a time saver for me to have a lot of them ready to be used.

I made tags in different sizes and shapes and used some of the lovely products that are in the kit this month to decorate the tags.

The floral and butterfly stickers are really my faves, because they are great for tags and can be used for any occasion. Plus it’s really easy to use them – just stick them down to the tag and add some alphas or other things like the star stickers or the washi tape from the kit.

What are your favourite things from this month’s kit? I hope you enjoy this kit just as much as I do.

Have a wonderful day!

XO,
Sandra
