You & Me: My Favorite Story layout

You & Me: My Favorite Story layout

Hello crafty friends!  It's Jung here, and today I'm sharing a layout that I created with the Pinkfresh Studio My Favorite Story collection.  I really love the black & white details mixed in with all the pastel and florals in this collection, and I wanted to highlight that.  

I am scrapping a pic of my husband and I from a few years ago.  I wanted your eye to be drawn to the photo, so I added layers and clusters of embellishments around the photo.  

I started off by using the sapphire watercolor to add some color to white cardstock.   I wanted that bold color, so I used to dropper to add big drops.  I also used a small paintbrush to add some splatter.  

Next, I started working on the layers behind the photo.  I used some pattern papers, ephemera, and I also diecut my favorite scalloped edge from the Lacey Edgers 1 die set out of white cardstock to layer behind the photos.  I added some machine stitching, and popped some of the layers with foam adhesive.  

To add even more details, I added floral ephemera, enamel dots, and a layered stitched heart around my photo.  I also added a banner ephemera, one of the fabric bows, and my title directly onto the photo.  

To balance off the heavy upper right corner, I added my journaling and a few pieces of layered ephemera to the lower left of my layout.  

I love how this layout turned out, and I hope you do too!


I also want to share my iNSD monochromatic challenge .  You can find all about my challenge HERE, in case you missed it.  You still have until Saturday May 9th to play along.

I decided to use the beautiful pinks in the Pinkfresh Studio My Favorite Story and Noteworthy collections.  I also used the Floral Hoop cutfile from PFS, which couldn't be more perfect for my layout.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you were inspired by my layouts, and I hope you have a chance to get crafty!
