The new Freckled Fawn Sketch Challenge is up and I played along. I recently bought an Epson PictureMate PM400 and so I actually decided to scrapbook a photo I had taken the same day! It’s been so nice to be able to print on demand. I will do a full review of the printer once I run out of ink (I’m currently counting my prints!).
For this layout, I used mostly items from the June Freckled Fawn kit.
The background paper is from Lawn Fawn & the patterned paper around the photo is from Elle’s Studio.
The only embellishments not from the June FF kits were the label shape (from the March FF Kit) and the alphas (also Freckled Fawn).
Here are two more up close photos of this layout:
And that was it. My goal this month is to work on getting back on track with scrapping. I’ve taken a major break due to all the house building stress lately. I will be back to it more regularly very soon.
Today I have a Freckled Fawn kit layout to share. I really love the fun colors of the June kits, and they worked beautifully with the layout I created.
If you guys have been here before, you probably know how I scrap, but again I made this two page layout as a project life/traditional scrapping hybrid of sorts that I like to call the cheater method. I incorporate a ton of photos into my album, by including pages such as this. And I love having traditional pages mixed in with project life style pages in my album. I do this by adhering all my project life style spread directly down to 12×12 cardstock so I don’t have to worry about all the different pocket pages being mixed in with 12×12 pages and having to put certain types of pages on the front and back. This gives me the freedom to create whatever style page layout on each side of the page.
On the traditional page, I decided to put the acrylic phrase directly over the photo because there was a lot of extra space in the photo. I really like how it looked over the photo.
I used a couple of the cute washi borders: one near the top of my photo & one down the right side of the layout. I also added a few of the little enamel hearts to the layout.
The title was made with a combo of alphas from my stash. The background paper is something I picked up somewhat recently but I can’t recall the collection name.
Last but not least, I added my favorite cork scallop at the bottom edge of the photo & layered it with one of the chipboard phrases from the kit.
These are among my favorite photos of my little girl (who is now 2) when she was a tiny baby. I kept the spread very simple, but the June kit really made it beautiful.
