Advent Faith Planner Set UP | Fairytale Club


I can't imagine NOT celebrating the reason for the season, Jesus.  I also can't imaging not remembering past Christmas joys full of Santas and stockings as a child and making those fun memories for my own munchkins!


First off is my Dashboard page with a lot of layers. An divider which has the foiled acetate, patterned paper, Vellum and a piece from the cut a-part paper.  I then added some die cut pieces and a small vintage picture of a Christmas story book I read as a child.


Let not forget about the planner pockets now!  I made a little grouping of patterned paper on top of which I have the die cut Jolly as well as the cutie- patutie snowman.  I also made a couple more vignettes for each pocket just to enjoy as I open my planner each day.



The sequins in the kit a bit more sparkle to my fun front, don't you think?!




As we turn the page I used the clear divider that came with the planner but I cut out Santa and backed him with a personal divider in that lovely candy cane paper.



Opposite page, All I added was a quick tag with another vintage image I remember as a child and then a die cut bow.  I attached it only in the middle so that it would be 3D-ish.




On the back of Santa, the personal divider that I adheared to the divider, I just added some washi and a nutcraker dude!  The quick tag and paperclip always makes a fantastic way to spice up a page too.



Lastly I decorated the monthly pages that will house my verses for the day.



Thanks so much for joining me today

Bible Journaling | Freckled Fawn



I've been doing some Bible Journaling lately and this kit couldn't come at a better time!

With it's Family centered theme it went very well with my gratitude documented theme for the day!

First, of all can we talk about those puffy alpha words!!


I suppose they came white for a reason!  I painted them in the same rainbow type pattern that was included in the kit.  Behind them, is a one of the journaling cards that looked like labels.  I cut off one end of the label and attached it to the beginning to make a diamond shaped pattern.  Under those I used a bit of the scalloped edged patterned paper as a base.


I then made a corresponding page in my gratitude journal.  Using another Journal Card as a base, I added a few pieced paper strips and some of the sticker labels for accents.


I finished by adding a couple of epoxy dots and one of those puffy houses!!



Lastly, I wanted to make a charm with one of those gold and colored flowers and a rubber house.  It's very easy to drill a hole and makes a great accent in my jounnal as well!

Thanks for joining me here today!!

Freckled Fawn | Kit Combining


 Last year's October kit had a few of the same colors as this years October kit so I decided to combine them together to make a whole new one with all that I have left.

I try and use each kit up to it's last and the perfect way for me is doing scrappy challenges.  This particular one has a free printable which had the same tones so they worked very well together.


Here is the house journal card and I used the hearts from this months kit to mimic smoke.  I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel, it is just is a cute way to incorporate those little detail touches onto your page.  Can I say how much I'm loving these new papers?!  I used them to back each page of my TN layout to add a punch of spice.


Alphas are great but when you are missing vowels, it's kinda a problem:)  I didn't have an O so I found this Q and made sure I turned it backwards and stitched across so it would take on it's new letter shape (and sound, LOL)!

Thanks guys!!!

One Little Bird | Holiday Planning


It's never too early to start planning the most wonderful time of the year!  I'm usually terrible with last minute stocking stuffer things but I'm totally determined to get it together this year!
I'm going to have a designated travelers notebook for all things Holiday and I've decided to spruce it up a bit with some of last years December Magic release!

This is a standard size travelers notebook in which I've printed out my Holiday insert.  The cover decoration is a wonderful Holiday plaid but I decided to tone it down to create a vignette by having a white opaque sticky paper as a base for my handsome hubby! I used two  of her journal cards a chipboard piece and some stiped washi to finish it out.

On the other side, a full dashboard insert where I've used this journal card where I've created a clipping mask in the 'd' and inserted my own winter tree pic.  Above is a quote from one of my favorite songs.....

...'Sleigh Ride'. Karen Carpenter's version is by far my favorite.

Further back in my TN, I've got a quick layered tag this will be easy to add to any last minute gift. Its just a shrunken and trimmed journal card with some washi and a gold star to top of two pre-made tags.

The other side of the dashboard from above is this textured 'merry' card with a accent stripe and a wood grain finish.   Her journal cards are so very versatile!

Thanks for joining us today on the blog!!

Freckled Fawn | October Memory Planner Spread


Howdy Freckled Fawners!  Kim here to talk about this wonderful October kit and my 1st project using a ring bound memory planner.


On the right hand side I wanted use the new 8.5 x 11 papers and the journal cards to the max.  After placing my horizontal picture on a vertical card, I started playing around with semi-circles and layered them concentrating on the right and center of the page. 



I placed the October wood veneer within the rings and wrapped a couple of those fantastic golden leaves around it to stick up as tabs.


My center divider was made from the new papers as well.  I punched a few larger wholes on the edge so I could tie some twine.  Those alphas just made my day!



The picture on the left is actually 3x4.  I just scored it down the center and wrapped it around the divider.


There is Tyler in his suit for homecoming on the facing divider side.


The journal card that matches the paper was ripped at the top for texture and a  stripped label sticker was added and wrapped just like the picture....


So it would be placed over part of Jack's Homecoming dance picture.



Another veritcal journal card, trimmed this time, was added as a base for Eli's sliding picture.  And instead of adding journaling to the chipboard piece, I added it below it.



Thanks for joining me today!  I hope this inspires you to use your October kit creatively!

Freckled Fawn | DIY Patterned Paper



Hi there!  Kim here to show you a fresh way of using some of the beautiful elements in the August Embellishment Kit!



To start off with, we got these beautiful Vintage Doily Acetate Diecuts!  

I used them two ways.  I placed them in a random pattern on the bed of my copier and printed a page.  I then cut it to fit as a background for my planner page.  I creates a beautiful, smooth surface to write your day's tasks on in addition to using them physically in other places in your planner as well.



I made this tag by using parts and pieces of the journal cards designed exclusively for Freckled Fawn by Lili Niclass.  I also attached a piece of the acetate doily as well as the floral wood chips to create some more texture and interest.




On the facing page I again, used a ripped journal card as a header for some events happening that Friday and accented it with those incredibly clear phrase stickers.  Seriously, can not get more clearer than clear!  

And the hidden gem of the kit would be the metal charms in a doily, feather and leaf.  I've attached them together and clipped to the elastic of my travelers notebook as a fun accessory.  These are exclusive to the kit which I'm sad to say has sold out already but you can always subscribe to be in on next month's exclusive goodies no matter what!





I appreciate you joining me here!  I hope I've inspired you today!

The Fairytale Club | Sweet Dailies

Sweet Dailies


Hi there, Kim here!  #whoohoo!!

Daily pages for me care so much fun to create!  I have, basically, 8 x 14 inches of blank standard pages to prettify using the 'Sweet' Kit.


After drawing 4 vertical lines to use as columns, I took some pattern paper up top below the day to start with candy striping.  Then, I started to segment my pages even further using ephemera to designate areas of attention. Don't forget to look all your kit options, including packaging, to use on your pages.


The kit's large alphas are overlapped here to mimic the handwriting font they are.  The label stickers designate as headers while the phrase stickers help encourage me along my day!


In this spread,  much like others, I try to focus my attention on each task by taking a quick second and going over the first letter with my pen.  It's such and easy way to turn any un-perfect handwriting into something a little more polished.

Thanks for joining me today!  I know you'll have a sweet day!

Freckled Fawn | In my humble opinion by Kim




Memory keeping and planning are just about the same thing.  For scrapbooking, pocket page, travelers notebook or whatever form of memory keeping you do,  you have limited space to tell a story marked by time pictures, drawings, any physical things that conveys a memory using supplies you choose.  Everything about planning, I think, is the same as those keepsakes we treasure; you choose the foundation, supplies and content.  The only difference between the two is the story. In planning's case, the story is right now, current, or is yet to come. It's all about thinking ahead to make those future events tangible and creating the story we want to have told by what occasion, task or intention that is coming around the corner (or the next page)!

Remember that you are the artist controlling you're own direction creatively in this planning endeavor.  Enjoy it for creating sake and use your killer skills to direct your daily, weekly and yearly path with beauty, expression and full of your voice the way you want to.



I just wanted to say thank you for choosing Freckled Fawn to be your helping hand in using your creative voice!  Your past, present and future story is unique, personal and a blessing to everyone!
