Just a Little Lovely Layouts | Ashley Horton

Just a Little Lovely Layouts | Ashley Horton

Hi there PF fans!  It's Ashley, and I'm here today with two layouts, using the beautiful Just a Little Lovely collection.  I always love working with new Pinkfresh Studio collections, and I had so much fun with this one.  My first layout uses the One Fine Day patterned paper and features fussy cutting.

I couldn't resist fussy cutting some of the pretty flowers from the paper and then layering them over the second sheet of the same patterned paper.  I added foam under each of the fussy cut flowers to give them dimension on the layout.  I placed them in a visual triangle, to help the eye travel around the layout, and it gave me three great spots for my photo and embellishment clusters.

I wanted my photo to really stand out from all of the bright colors, so I changed it to Black & White.  Then I placed it on the left hand side of the page to create my first cluster.  I used some of the Ephemera Pieces, Layered Stickers and Enamel Dots around my photo to add interest.

The last two clusters added great balance to my layout.  And I even used the cluster at the bottom of the page to add my title with the cute Watercolor Mini Puffy Alpha Stickers.  I love the subtle look they add and how easily they blend in with the colors of the patterned paper.  Some enamel dots, a wood button, ephemera pieces and a puffy sticker completed the look of my layout.

On my second layout, I wanted to focus on circles from Just a Little Lovely.  Inspiration struck when I saw the beautiful circle floral piece from the Acetate Ephemera pack.  I couldn't wait to use it as a focal point on my layout, with a circle photo placed in the center.

There are some fun circle embellishments included in the Just a Little Lovely collection, in the Ephemera Pack, Puffy Stickers sheet and Layered Stickers sheet.  And I even made some of my own circles.  I used my circle punch to create a couple of other pieces that I needed for my design.

Once I had all of the main elements of my design in place, I used the Puffy Phrase Stickers to add my title.  I love the contrast of the large, horizontal title with all of the circles.  And it's always the little finishing touches that I love adding to my layouts, that make me happy.  I love to add a mix of texture and dimension around my photo and in my clusters. 

I hope you've found some inspiration from my layouts today, and that you have as much fun as I did, creating with the Just a Little Lovely collection!
