Let Your Heart Decide the Next Chapter

Let Your Heart Decide the Next Chapter

**ETA: All winners from the Spring Release Blog Hop have been posted! Check the GIVEAWAY WINNERS page to find out if you are a winner!**

Hello Pinkfresh Studio friends!  Lorilei here with you today sharing two layouts for my first time on the blog!  I couldn't be more excited, I have been a huge Pinkfresh Studio fan for some time! 

For my first layout I chose the Spur patterned paper for my background and added some watercolor paint in a few spots to add a layer of softness.  I was drawn to the on to the next chapter banner and decided to make that the theme of my page! 

Once I decided on the perfect spot for my photo I layered a stitched frame on top of the photo and a trail of beautiful ephemera, layered stickers and epoxy heart stickers that follows the lines in the background paper.  Using a paper with a defined pattern certainly helps make embellishing easy!

I added the "let your heart be your compass" circle at the top intersection of the Spur paper and used the beautiful puffy alpha for my title.  I love that there are so many color choices included for each letter in the alphas.  I was able to select the dominant colors in my background paper to keep the layout harmonic!

My next layout was inspired by my One Little Word for the year which is "Nurture" the thoughtful sentiments on the Let Your Heart Decide Cardstock Sticker sheet worked perfectly for the ideas behind my word! I chose the stunning Instinct patterned paper for my background.  I do love a lot of white on my layouts so I cut 3D flowers from white cardstock and placed them on the paper using the leaves on the paper to incorporate the flowers!

The cardstock sticker circles fit perfectly in the centers of the flowers.  I moved them around until they made me happy and then used dimensional adhesive to give them some lift.

I tucked in one of the stitched frames behind my photo and lifted the absolutely adorable little terrarium up above the photo.  Hearts from the epoxy stickers and ephemera pack were the perfect addition to my photo! 

Thank you so much for joining me today!  I look forward to getting to know you!  You can find me on Instagram if you would like to follow my scrappy adventures!
