Cutfiles and Mixing & Matching paper collections

Cutfiles and Mixing & Matching paper collections

Hey Pinkfresh Studio friends!  It's Jung here, and today I'm sharing 2 layouts that I created by mixing and matching the Just A Little Lovely and Office Hours paper collections.  I am also using a couple cut files designed to coordinate with these paper collections.  They will be available soon, so keep a look out!

For my first layout, I am using the Lovely Tag cutfile.  

I cut it from white cardstock, and backed it with the Hope and New Thoughts pattern papers from the Just A Little Lovely collection.  For my background, I used the Around Here pattern paper (my favorite from the collection). On the background, I used some of the Pinkfresh watercolors to add some splatters.  I also took one of the tiny flowers from the Lovely Blossoms stamp set to add some tone-on-tone stamping.  I adhered the cutfile with thin foam squares.

Next I added my photo.  I layered it with pattern paper.  I used one of the Lacey Edgers stand alone dies to create a cute scalloped edge to layer under my photo.  I also added a fussy cut file tab from the Office Hours Busy pattern paper.

For my title, I used the Just a Little Lovely puffy alpha stickers.  I added a little bit of hand written journaling...I love that this pattern paper has grid lines to keep everything straight!

To embellish, I added some Office Hours puffy stickers (that tiny pencil is just the cutest), a fabric ephemera piece, enamel dots, and a few phrase stickers from the Just a Little Love collection.

For my next layout, I used the Heart & Floral cutfile.  

Again, I used the Hope and New Thoughts pattern paper to back the florals on the cutfile.  I decided to use the Story pattern paper for my background.  I added a lot of white splatters to the page; I used just a little bit of white acrylic paint watered down.  Next, I partially machine stitched the heart to my background.  I wanted to be able to tuck my photos under the flowers, so I didn't stitch the flowers down.  I used just a little bit of foam squares under the flowers to add that dimension.

For my title, I used the tiny pink puffy alpha, as well as a cardstock label from the Office Hours collection to spell out the word fifteen (for our fifteenth wedding anniversary).  My journaling is just a few words from one of our favorite songs called "From This Moment On."  

I embellished the layout with a few pieces from the Office Hours collection.  I was able to use a lot of the phrases from this collection on my anniversary page..."top priority," "make it happen," "start here"...totally work for relationships!  

Again, I used the Lacey Edgers dies to add some scalloped details behind my photos.  I also used a few cardstock ephemera pieces from the Just A Little Lovely collection.  

I hope you enjoyed my layouts as much as I loved making them.  I absolutely love the papers in the Just a Little Lovely collection...especially the B sides!  I love the look of mixed media, and these papers are already ready to go!  The office hours collection has turned out to be surprisingly versatile.  I have used them on a craft room layout, school layouts, and now an anniversary layout.

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out!  Don't forget to check out the Pinkfresh Studio website for all these supplies!
