This month, I was inspired by the awesome color scheme, the hexagon motif, the arrows, and the large chipboard “adventure” word, so I decided to use the emellishment kit to create a pocket spread about a weekend trip to Michigan!
The colors in the kit went really well with a photo I’d taken of a mural, so I decided to use the photo as a title card with the chipboard “Adventure” laid on top.
This spread just for the highlights of the trip–I’m making a minibook with more details–but I still needed a 6×12 insert to get the basic story in.
I used the vellum letter stickers and the washi tape to create a card with the names of the cities we spent time in while on the trip. I used enamel dots and hexagons to brighten up a journaling card!
I let the chipboard heart overlap the edge a bit on the journaling card–I flip over the card to easily trim off the excess, then smooth out the cut portion with an emery file.
When I’m using Freckled Fawn kits on pocket pages, often I like including a little embellishment on almost every card. This helps me to bring balance–usually with color–to the whole spread. But not every card needs embellishing! I left the one journaling card on the back of my insert alone.
I created my own journaling card by adding white cardstock to patterned paper and using the chipboard arrow and hexagon pieces to decorate the edges. Like with the chipboard heart, I overlapped the hexagons over the edge of the card, flipped them over to trim them from the back, and filed the edges smooth. I saved the partial pieces of hexagon and put one in the bottom corner. The rest went back in the packaging for future use!
To finish up my spread, I used an acrylic “fun” word on the last journaling card. It was looking a little lonely floating on the top, so I added two of the black puffy sticker arrows to ground the word on the card!
