Joyful Day layouts, featuring a grid & a cut file | Jung AhSang

Hello friends!  It's Jung here, and today I'm sharing 2 layouts I made using the Joyful Day collection.  The colors and the florals in this collection are stunning, and I had so much fun creating with these products.

For my first project, I made a grid layout, which is a personal favorite of mine.  I am also scrapping photos of my sister's new corgi puppy.  She is so cute!

On a sheet of white cardstock, I added some pink ink blending, and paint splatters.  For the splatter, I used some Pinkfresh Studio watercolors.  I wanted the perfect shade of blue to match the blue color in the kits, so I mixed a little bit of sky blue, sapphire, lavender, and a lot of water.  I lightly sketched a grid, then added some hand stitching.  

I die cut circles from some of the pattern papers in the collection: fresh startsmall beginnings, being us, and big ideas.  I also used the Fancy Floral 1 die to create a tone-on-tone look.

For my photos, I knew I wanted to frame them with the botanicals circle frame die.  I ended up die cutting the frame from white cardstock 6 times; I wanted each frame to be a layer of 3 frames, so that it would give a dimensional, chipboard effect.  I glued the frames to the photos.

I arranged my circles on the grid, and once I liked how everything was played out, I started adhering the circles to the layout.  

I embellished the frames with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, one of the chipboard frames, cardstock stickers, more puffy stickersmixed embellishments and enamel dots.

I also used the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set and coordinating dies to create my own embellishments.  The beauty of stamp sets is that you're able to create your own embellishments in the exact color scheme you want, not to mention you can use them over and over again.  

For my title, I used a mixture of fonts; I used the puffy alpha stickers, and the multicolor mini puffy alpha stickers.

 

 

For my second layout, I used an exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut file, called Folk Motif, which you can access in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page.  I thought the cutfile, and the colors int the collection worked perfectly with the photos of my youngest daughter all dressed up.

I cut the Folk Motif on white cardstock, and I backed the cut file with the pattern papers in the collection: simple pleasures, being us, true story, and small beginnings.    

I mounted the cut file on white cardstock.  I adhered it to the left side, and I couldn't decide if I wanted it to hang off the edge or not.  In the end, I decided to add a bit of the pattern paper to the left side, because I didn't want to trim any of the cut file off, and since it was hanging off the edge a tiny bit, I would've had to trim it.

 

I backed the photos with pattern paper, then started to embellish.  Again, I stamped a few of the flowers and leaves from the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set, and used the coordinating dies to create my own floral embellishments.  I really love how this stamp set seem to coordinated really well with my backed cutfile!

I also used puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, and enamel dots to embellish the layout.

I added a simple little title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.

I love how the cutfile turned out!  It makes such a big impact on my layout, and enhances the photos, rather than overpowers them.  

I really love how my layouts turned out, and I hope you got some inspiration as well.  Don't forget to check out the Joyful Day collection, and I hope you'll share your layouts by tagging Pinkfresh Studio on your projects.  

Have a happy day!
