October 15-21 Pocket Spread | Freckled Fawn November 2017 Kit | The Nerd Nest 1

I just got my new Freckled Fawn kit and I jumped in using it right away! It has a lot of cute house icons, so I automatically jumped to documenting one of the home improvement projects we’ve been working on. I wrote out a list of different ideas I had for using the kit and I’ll be working on those and sharing them too!

Here’s a pocket spread for October 15-21:

Going on here: Selfie with Jonas before I chaperoned his class field trip (which I’ll document with a separate page), out to eat, Ava’s last soccer game of the season, Jonas tapping, documenting style, Eliza spending the night at my mom’s to make her Halloween costume, stuck in marathon traffic, rearranging furniture, coffee + books, new pot roast recipe, messy spaghetti Tierney.

I did a lot of embellishing on the title card, which combined cut down patterned paper with a November journaling card, a trio of puffy house stickers to fill in the empty space on the card after I’d added a title, a label sticker in the corner with a little embellishment cluster of a banner phrase sticker and enamel stickers.

Because of that, I kept the rest of the page fairly simple. I used all journaling cards from the kit, adding washi tape to one for a bit more color.

I used label sticker to add more journaling onto photos and put a banner phrase sticker on one of the collages.

Going on here: The before picture of Eliza’s unfinished future closet space in the attic–lots of gross insulation that squirrels once lived in and weird broken things previous owners threw in, supplies in the van to finish closet spaces (man, this van is a game changer), Jake playing with our baby niece Aubrey when we went to go pick up our kids from my brothers’ (thanks, bro!), family dinner and cookie decorating at my mom’s.

I loved combining a banner phrase sticker and puffy house stickers on each of the home improvement photos. Mirroring products like this is a fun technique!

Using label stickers on photos helped me add more journaling. This allowed me to use one of the pockets for a filler journaling card and a banner phrase sticker.

I love how this spread turned out and I’m excited to go make more!

Do you have home improvement projects to document that could use some house icons?
