Hi Pinkfresh Studio Friends!
Amanda here, & I am so excited to be sharing my first layouts created with the new Be You & The Mix No.2 collections!!!
Both these collections are super pretty!
Be You is soft and delicate with the most gorgeous rose gold accents, while The Mix No.2 is super bright and fun!
Here's what I created with Be You,
Seriously dreamy indeed!
Isn't this just divine?!! The colors make me sigh! Blush tones with mint, black, white, navy and rose gold! OH so pretty!!!!
With so many pretties in this line, I decided to challenge myself and use at least one item from every Be You product.
I start with the stunning 12 x 12 pattern paper SINCERE, and layer it with white cardstock, creating a beautiful border on the top and right hand side of my layout.
To show off those gorgeous papers, I decide to use an open hearts cut file & back the hearts with lots of patterns from the 6 x 6 PAPER PACK. The papers coordinate beautifully, and make this cut file paper piecing so easy!
Before I attach my heart cut file, I create a quick mixed media base in soft lime, and pink tones to draw attention away from the hearts, and into my photo cluster.
And isn't that photo so precious?!
I've mounted it onto an EPHEMERA piece, and then embellished the cluster with MINI LEATHERETTE TAGS, a TASSEL BOW (these bows are the cutest!!!), PUFFY STICKERS, & more EPHEMERA PACK pieces.
Surrounding the cluster, and also embellishing the hearts are WOOD & EPOXY BUTTONS, CHIPBOARD STICKERS, and even some FABRIC DIE CUTS. You can see how it wasn't really a challenge to use one of everything - it is ALL sooooo good! That rose gold foil accent is especially gorgeous! It really adds warmth to this otherwise cool & refreshing palette. LOVE it!
How perfect is that sentiment PUFFY STICKER, Just Us and Our Stories?! Ideal for any style of memory keeping!
And I can't forget to mention those incredible rose gold PUFFY ALPHA STICKERS! Talk about wow factor!!! These are just divine!
All the hearts, (and ALL the heart eyes emojis) for the new Be You collection!
And now for something completely different with The Mix No. 2,
I told you this collection was bright & fun!!!
All the rainbow happy vibes here!
As this is an 'embellishment' collection, I decided to use a white cardstock base & another heart cut file ('cos after all - it is February, the month of love!)
I spritzed my cut file in matching 'rainbow' colors, and then went to town with all those fabulous embellishments!
With such a fabulous array of colored PUFFY ALPHA STICKERS I knew I wanted to create a 'feature' of them in my title / journaling. I combine them with the PUFFY HEART STICKERS and trail them around my cut file heart, matching the alpha colors to my shimmering colored heart.
If you're wanting to recreate this layout, I used PUFFY ALPHA STICKERS: Pink, Peach, Yellow, Green, Light Blue & Navy. And to be honest, these alphas are so versatile - you'll be using them on everything!
How awesome are the PUFFY HEART STICKERS inside the cut file?
Again, I have color matched them to my spritzed paints, and the result is SO effective!
Simple techniques for big outcomes!
I have layered my sweet girl's photo onto an EPHEMERA PACK tag, and label, and then embellished this small cluster with CARDSTOCK STICKERS and a ribbon bow from my stash. The Good Vibes EPHEMERA serves as a subtitle to my layout, but more importantly, the striking black & white cuts through the rainbow and brings your attention to my photo. Perfect balance!
Oh! The TASSEL BOWS !!!
They are seriously my new favourites! Could they be any sweeter?!!
All the color fun with The Mix No.2!
I hope I have inspired you with my layout today!
