May Mix Up with Adrienne Alvis
Posted on 01 May 2017
Hello everyone! I'm here today with a layout and a Project Life spread that I created by mixing the latest Pinkfresh Studio collections together! They pair so well with each other which made it really easy and fun to use for these projects.
For this layout, I started by choosing one of the patterned papers from the Dream On collection and layered some smaller paper pieces from the Live More collection on top of the background patterned paper. I love the sentiments on the "Rise" patterned paper piece from the Live More collection, don't you? Since I didn't want to cover it up completely, I layered the photos of my daughter and her puppy off to the left side of the "Rise" paper so most of the wording would stay in view. I also created a little motion by stamping the confetti behind my photos using the Live More stamp set.
For added color and dimension I placed several of the triangle shaped Studio Puffs from the Live More collection on top of the confetti stamps. I also added a few of the layered chipboard stickers from the Live More collection and The Mix No. 1 collection which is exclusively embellishments.
For my next project, I created a pocket page spread for my Project Life album for the month of March. After I printed my photos off on my home printer, I used the 6x6 paper pad from the Dream On and Live More collections to make my journaling cards for the 3x4 pockets. The smaller scale of the patterns look better for my overall design since the pocket sizes are smaller. I embellished directly onto my photos and the journaling cards by using items from the Dream On and Live More collections such as the studio puffs, card stock die cuts, and a few of the layered chipboard stickers.
I kept my spread cohesive my using the same color scheme for both pages and by layering some of the embellishments onto the photos themselves.
I created my title card, which is at the bottom right-hand corner of my spread, by simply placing some of the Live More acetate alphas on a piece of patterned paper from the same collection to spell out the month of March and adhering them using my mini stapler.
I love how the pastel colors of the Live More collection balance out the bolder colors of the Dream On and The Mix No.1 collections! I also love how they all coordinate with my everyday photos.
Thanks so much for joining me! I hope you have a great day and don't be afraid to "mix it up"!
