Hi! Odessa here with my first layout on the Fairytale Club team! I was so excited to get Take Note in the mail. I just love the colours and images in this kit. I lean pretty girly in my layouts, even though my family is all boys so working with a kit like this is my jam!!!
I started by picking my fave papers (which was hard because they are all so good!) from the kit and then adding in a focal journal card from the cut apart sheet. Once I get that done it's time for my favourite part, embellishing!!! The embellishments in Take Note are perfect! Word stickers annnd puffy words?!? Word stickers of any type are my fav kind of Embellishment. There's also some great stickers, cute epoxy shapes and fabulous die cuts that all go so well together. I <3 how cohesive every single piece is.
I usually start embellishing by laying down some word stickers and then working around them. It helps me figure out my main themes and what I'm saying and after that, I get in this zone where everything else falls into place. I just had to use that cute die cut deer and one of the ticket die cuts was perfect as a header for some journaling about a concert I went to.
Once I've got all the embellishing done I finish up with some journaling. I journaled three different ways on this layout. On the top row, I used one of the label stickers to add a few words to a screen shot of a song I'm loving on Spotify right now. In the next row, I have a picture of a Frappuccino that had some good word stickers up the side. I added a touch of journaling right on the picture - the whip cream was a perfect spot to write! Then in the bottom row in the middle I used the ticket die cut as a header and wrote right on the paper (Something Wonderful! which might be my fav paper in the whole collection). I love how it looks next to the concert photo next to it.
Once I've got the journaling done I give it one more look over and usually add a few more tiny stickers or adjust the placement of something. And then it's done! I hope you've enjoyed this peek into my process and I can't wait to share more Fairytale Club inspiration with you!
