PINKFRESH STUDIO 5th BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP CELEBRATION




Hi there!
Today Pinkfresh Studio is celebrating their 5th Anniversary with a fun blog hop!  I am so glad you are stopping by as you are arriving from Yoonsun 's blog.

I am a huge fan and collector of Pinkfresh Studio goodies; i love their collections, stamps and dies, and might have a few or most of their products somewhere in my stash.  So, I was ecstatic when they invited me to be part of the blog hop, and sent the beautiful Out and About collection for me to work with.   Let me show you what i have created for today:



My first layout is all about combining the papers from the Out and About collection with the new Adore Alpha Die set.     For this, i use the die set to create the background of the page, by diecutting all the words using the die from a single strip of white cardstock.



I used foam adhesive to prop the negative part of the cut on the b-side of the Travel paper, and then used the dies to cut the same words out of 6x6 paper pad.  Then glued only the positive letter cut outs to fill in the letter spaces in the paper strip.


The Out and About collection is filled with beautiful embellishments so i used a combination of all of them to create clusters around the picture and the page.  Here is the final layout:



Love the look of the page, but what to do with all the left over pieces from this page, well, i used them to create an entry on my Family album (Citrus Twist Kits Life Crafted)





This time i machine stitched a piece of the Explore paper to one side of my spread, and carefully used the letter die cuts to create a title for the entry.   A bit of glue was all i needed to secure the letters to the page. I used the empty spaces at the bottom of the title to add a cluster of ephemera that tell a bit more of the story of this entry.



For the other side of the entry, i created a pocket with vellum and machine stitching, and used it as a layer behind the picture.   I attached both to a page created from the Scenic Look paper.  I repeated some of the  embellishments in the cluster of the picture, and the housed my journal in a tag (from the collection) which is tucked inside the vellum pocket behind the picture.


The designs and colors in this collection are versatile and vibrant, and perfect  to document travel and every day memories, here is another project in my little Family Album  that uses this collection:




I used the tags in this collection to add the travel feel to this two part PL spread.   Once again, i used the embellishments and papers to bring these memories together in my album.




For the first part of my spread, i used the colors and shape of the embellishments to bring your eye to the picture of my daughter and littles roaming around the mall.  The tag houses the journal lines, and it is attached to the album with pieces of acetate as they will be the division/linking piece of the complete spread.




This part of the spread has a more monochromatic look, but still works as a whole with the first part of the spread.   The hint is placement and repetition on the embellishment shapes.   I glued the two tags together, so that they can easily be flipped between the two sides of the spread.  LOVE how this came together.


And now to the last project created for this blog hop.  For this page, i combined the Out and About collection with a bit of Liquid watercolor.




I kept the page simple, but added lots of embellishments that help me tell the story of a day visiting the city's skyline on a ferry boat.   Here is a video that shows you how it  all came together:



The page is simple, colorful, and a just representation of our little city adventure.   The papers, embellishments of the Out and About collection are enhanced by the simple mixed media background.




Now it is time to get the celebration started with some giveaways:

  • There will be (3) Grand Prizes picked from the Pinkfresh blog: Liquid Watercolor full set, Set of our 3 current paper collections, and the entire April Essentials die release.


  • Each of the participants will be giving away a $25 giftcard on your blog post.. As per usual with blog hops - the winners will be picked from the comments. So leave a bit of love in each of the blogs you visit.
