Real Life Layouts with Lorilei

Real Life Layouts with Lorilei

Hello Pinkfresh Studio friends!  Lorilei with you today, sharing two layouts I made using the fabulous A Case of the Blahs collection! I have to tell you that I was excited to dive into this collection.  I love the sentiments about real life and the the sometimes not so great side of life.  The colors are gorgeous and everything flows together so beautifully!

For my first page I wanted to build around the real life word art in the Diecut Ephemera pack.  I noticed that the stamp set had the same words in a smaller version, so I used the stamp to create a messy stamped around my photo on the background.  I did some light stenciling and black paint splatters as well.

The pajamas all day label was a must have for me.  My daughter and I "might" spend a lot of our day to day lives in pajamas!  I layered the frame, diecuts and sweet little enamel dots around my photo and in a vertical line above and below my photo.

I had cut a 3" strip of the Oops paper to layer down the vertical line but it covered too much of the background so I fussy cut the houses and used them as embellishments!  I popped a few up on foam dots for dimensional interest.  I love how the page turned out!

My second page was inspired by the "feeling all the feelings" die cut banner.  I knew the story I wanted to tell as soon as I saw the banner.  I chose the Oops, Flawsome and Awkward paper and stacked them for my background.  I cut the middles out of the two bottom papers then punched hearts from the Oops paper, layered and stiched them down the middle. 

Next came layering around my photo.  I added some of the fresh color in the Blah paper for a pop of color and coordinating chipboard and die cuts.

I fiddled around with a spot for my title for awhile and finally decided to add it at the top of the page.  I LOVE this alpha, the font choice in the black color is perfect!!  To break up my title I added the "girls" in the cute alpha from the sticker sheet.

A few final details with enamel dots and the cutest little heart stamp finished off my page!

I hope you enjoyed my "real life" pages! They were a joy to make!
