Using squares on your layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio's Super Cool and Noteworthy collections

Using squares on your layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio's Super Cool and Noteworthy collections

Hello crafty friends! It's Jung here, and today I'm sharing 2 layouts that I created with Pinkfresh Studio's new collections Super Cool and Noteworthy. I am featuring squares in both my layouts today.

For my first layout, I created a 4 square layout using the Noteworthy collection. I am also using a free cutfile, called folk heart, which you can find on the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page. You will find it in the Fan Group Freebies album located in the photos.

 

I cut the folk heart 3 times from white cardstock. Then I cut just the outline of the heart from the Enchanted blooms pattern paper. I made sure that all of my hearts were the same size. Next, I trimmed the pattern paper that I cut the heart from to slightly smaller than 6x6 in. I also cut 3 more pieces of pattern paper to the same size; I used the other side of the Enchanted blooms pattern paper, as well as Happy Thoughts and All the Goodness. To these 3 pattern papers, I adhered the folk heart cut files by machine stitching down the middle of the heart. I also machine stitched around the edges of all the pattern paper, then roughened up the edges for texture.

I adhered all the squares to a white piece of cardstock, then started to embellish. I didn't want to cover up too much of the folk hearts, so I added just a few embellishments to the middle. I used some ephemera pieces, some epoxy pieces, and enamel dots.

 

I added some embellishments to my photo. I added the Together title, which is a layered embellishment. I also journaled on a sticker tag, and added a few puffy stickers and enamel dots.

 

I absolutely love the way this layout turned out! I love the look of the cutfile, and the mix of pattern paper.

 

 

For my next layout, I used the Super Cool collection to document my daughter's love of selfies and snapchat filters.

 

On a piece of white cardstock, I decided to add a little bit of color. I used my mini ink cube in Coral Reef to smush some color down on a pallete. I added some clear gesso, and mixed it with a paint brush so I could create a dry brush look. I also smushed the ink pad and added just a little bit of water for some splatters.

 

I decided to make a grid style layout, so I printed and trimmed all my photos into small squares. I decided to cut some pattern papers to about the same size. They are slightly smaller than 2x2 in. The pattern papers I used were Highlight, Choir, and Hashtag. To add some interest to the pattern paper squares, I added some machine stitching to some of the squares.

After arranging the squares, I adhered them to the cardstock...some with double sided tape, others with foam squares for added interest.

 Next, I added the title. Those white puffy alpha are my favorite! I love the font, and they are a perfect size!

 

I finished my layout by embellishing some of the pattern paper squares. I fussy cut some items from pattern paper, I used puffy stickers, cardstock stickers and enamel dots.

 

I love how my layouts turned out, and I hope you were inspired to add some squares and grids to your projects as well.
