Giant Nebula Knit Blanket Layout with August Freckled Fawn Kit | The Nerd Nest 1

I had a great time playing along with the August Freckled Fawn Sketch using the August Freckled Fawn Kit!

The colors in the kit and the epoxy star stickers reminded me of a blanket I made for Jonas last year, so I decided to make a page about that!

The August kit is sold out, but many of the individual items are still avalible. Find them here.

You can use the August Sketch with any products, but I love that it is made with the August kit in mind, so choosing embellishments was a no brainer!

Here’s how I used the sketch:

I stuck pretty close to the original design with a few changes.

Instead of adding patterned paper horizontally, I used three August All About Love Journal Cards by Lili Niclass. I made a bigger title using White Puffy Alpha Stickers and used the second card for journaling.

I added strips of Rose Gold Woodgrain Washi to the top and bottom of the cards to pull them together. I loved that the tape played off of the metallic thread bits in the blanket and was a nod to Groot, as the blanket color scheme was based on a Guardians of the Galaxy poster!

I added August Epoxy Star Stickers to the center of each Vintage Doily Acetate Diecut and skipped the large heart embellishment on the sketch.

Instead of including three 4×6 photos, I included two 4×6 and two 3×4 photos. I used foam adhesive on the back of one of the 3×4 photos to make it stand out!

Lastly, I used a Doily Flair instead of a large heart in the upper left corner.

I absolutely love how this page came out and had such a great time making it quick thanks to this sketch.
