Mint Green, Gold, and (Pink)fresh Love.
Posted on 07 June 2014
Layout #1:Sister Love
I’m a crazy lover of mint green and pink, especially in the scrapbooking-world. I decided to go with that color scheme for both of my layouts, mostly to change up my style from last month’s creations, but also because there are some great Pinkfresh embellishments to go with these beautiful colors. I began with a white background and then I chose the picture and patterned papers to go with the scheme. The picture I chose beautifully captures my sister buttoning my wedding dress. Don’t cringe, but I got a little crazy and cut up the letterpress card because I really wanted the saying “happy little moments” inside the Pinkfresh XOXO frame. I sewed on some of those amazing mint green and gold letters, and finally added some wood veneer and brad embellishments to complete the page. I hope you all enjoy this one!
Layout #2: Forehead Kisses
Again, I chose pink and mint green as my colors but Iwanted this layout to have a softer design. I choose white backgrounds a lot so I decided to stay away from that, even those I just had to add that pop of white during my layering process. I added several layers behind my photo for extra dimension and interest. I was determined to use that pink/mint washi so I decided to tuck it in the corners. If you’ll notice the small wood veneer pieces—those are most definitely by Pinkfresh. I LOVE that you can use these cute little shapes for their color-block element on one side, but if you want a different look, you can use the other side which is au-naturel baby. I just can’t resist using those gold foil letters (it’s a serious problem), so of course I had to add them in as part of my title. Lastly, I added an adhesive brad and some enamel shapes for that final touch. I hope you like this one too!
Card: Happy Mail
This might be the simplest card I’ve ever made, but I’m in love. I began with a 4x4 card base and patterned paper. I knew I wanted to use another Pinkfresh frame, but I hadn’t decided which embellishments yet. I added the frame to a 3x4 card and cut it to the appropriate size. I then decided I wanted this to be a “happy mail” card. What’s more perfect than a tiny little Pinkfresh wood veneer envelope to add to a “happy mail” card? Nothing. I hope y’all gain some inspiration from this cute, simple, perfectly-sized card.
Thanks for stopping by!
