San Antonio Pocket Spread with the August Freckled Fawn Kit | The Nerd Nest 1

The August Freckled Fawn Kit has some wonderful travel themed embellishments, so I knew immediately that I’d want to tackle a vacation I haven’t scrapbooked yet with the kit. I browsed my photo folders and realized I hadn’t gotten our trip to San Antonio last summer in the books yet–and the colors and florals in the kit were perfect!

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

I included highlights from the first portion of our trip for this spread. The August All About Love Journal Cards by Lili Niclass made this layout so bright and fun. I love having cards that coordinate with the embellishment kit–this spread came together so quickly!

Going on here: San Antonio art along the River Walk for the title spot, our traditional family road trip photo, trying out a fun restaurant called Hot Joy, and exploring my friend Jessica’s swanky new apartment complex.

For the title card, I used cork letters (from the sold out December 2016 kit), an August Floral Wood Chip in the top left corner (I also used one in the bottom right of the other page), and I added a retired Freckled Fawn label sticker to add the date range of the trip in.

I used the August Epoxy Foil Floral Stickers to fancy up the bottom of the yellow journaling card along with three hearts on the roadtrip photo. I also snuck some August Clear Wanderlust Phrase Stickers to the negative space of a few photos.

Going on here: The San Antonio River Walk + The Alamo.

I had fun adding a few embellishments onto the journaling cards. For the orange card, I added a phrase sticker to the title space and framed it with two heart epoxy stickers, then added floral epoxy sticker to the bottom right corner. I added a phrase sticker to the center of a doily pattern on a journaling card too!

Our walk to and time at the Alamo was VERY hot, so using an orange August Vintage Doily Acetate Diecut to represent the sun was both pretty and part of the story!

I had so much fun documenting my San Antonio trip with this kit! I love when kit themes motivate me to go back and scrapbook older stories I was avoiding for one reason or another.
