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

DIY Traveler’s Notebook Insert Cover Tutorial | Washi Wednesday

Hey everyone! Sami here with another Washi Wednesday Tutorial.

I recently made a cover for my Traveler’s Notebook insert and I wanted to share it with you. I really loved how last week’s clean and simple thank you cards turned out with the Chevron Washi that was part of the March Embellishment Kit and Planner Kit. I wanted to take that a step further by making a TN notebook cover.

Lately I have been using a Freckled Fawn Sleek TN in the color Rich Teal. I just LOVE the texture on this TN. It’s gorgeous!

Here is the quick video showing how I made my cover:

I hope you enjoyed today’s quick tutorial.

Have a lovely day!

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:

Sketch+ Challenge #2

Hi lovelies!!

Doe here with a super fun challenge and sketch. Before we get to this week’s Sketch+ Challenge. It’s time to announce our winner from last week!

Big congrats to Kelly Sroka! Please email me at doe@freckledfawn.com so I can get your prize sent out.

Alright. Now’s the time to pull out that huge stash of washi tape; you know that plastic bin you have hidden in your bedroom closet. I know you all have some ;). This is a safe space, no judgement. It’s okay to be addicted to washi. I LOVE washi!! All the pattern options and the ease of using it. It’s perfection.

The challenge today is to use your washi to make a large shape that will work as your crafty background. You can do this on a layout, on a card, etc.

On my layout I used washi tape, felt doilies, puffy border stickers, pearl stickers, and a white foam “laugh” sticker.

Step One : Pull out some coordinating washi rolls. You can coordinate by color or pattern. Then, on your layout, lightly trace a large shape (heart, star, square, etc).

Step Two : Use your washi rolls to fill in the shape you’ve traced. You can use scissors to cut the edges or even a credit card (see tutorial HERE). Or, to make it even easier, you can cut out the shape after you’ve finished and then just glue the shape onto a new layout.

Step Three : Add photos, embellishments, and journaling! I haven’t done my journaling yet because it’s TOP SECRET! And I didn’t want to photograph it hehe.

I loved seeing everyone’s creations who participated last week. And I can’t wait to see what you guys do with your washi tape this week! Project entries are due by Wednesday Feb 15th at 9PM MST. Check back Thursday for another fun challenge & to see who won!

SURPRISE DISCOUNT! Since this challenge is all about washi tape, how about a discount! Use code “WashiROCKS” during checkout and get 15% off all washi tape on our site. Code expires Monday February 13 at midnight MST.
