Pinkfresh Studio December 2023 Press Plate Release


Hi there!

Welcome to PINKFRESH STUDIO DECEMBER 2023 PRESS PLATE RELEASE.   Today, we are celebrating the release of all the new Press Plates and Glitter paper with Inspiration and Prizes

It was so hard to pick a few products to work with, but I finally chose the Floral Octagon Frame and the Beautiful Roses Press Plates and Dies for my project:

I love  how the page turned out, but let's take a closer look:

I used the Beautiful Roses Press Plate and Detail Black Ink to create all the impressions on watercolor paper, then used watercolors in tones of pink and green to detail the flowers.   

While the florals dried, I pulled the inks from the Amalfi Coast Premium Dye ink set to create a few of the frames using the Floral Octagon Frame Press Plate and Die.  I set this on white cardstock with a bit of foam adhesive.   Each stripe of frames corresponds to a color of ink, then trimmed the cardstock to 9.5x11in, then placed it on vanilla cardstock.

I set my image in the bottom half of the page, and made sure that the Beautiful Roses run from behind the picture to the left and right of the page.   A few extra embellishments from the Lovely Blooms collection, a few embossed Small Butterflies and Gold Metallic Pearls complete the page.

I just love how this turned out, and I hope it inspires you to check the rest of the inspiration.

 It is the most magical time of the year!  And the new GINGERBREAD KISSES collection is just perfect to document those magical memories.   The theme and color palette in this collection is ideal for a few pictures of my little nephew creating his gingerbread house for Santa.

It all started with the new Gingerbread Lane Doodle Cuts die. I wanted to create this layered design as a featured in my page, then build the rest around it.

I used Petite Prints, Gingerbread Kisses Patterned paper and coordinating solid cardstock to create the Gingerbread house and the small gingerbread men,  I pulled a few sprinkles to add the decoration to the house.  This was just so much to put together.

To build the page around the house die cut, my choice was to create a paper fold using the Sugarplums paper.  However, I added a piece of the Cookies for Santa as part of the fold, since the patterned helped with the overall design of the page.   Once the house was secured, I added extra decorations, and a title using Chit Chat pieces.

I backed the empty space created by the fold with cardstock and a piece of the Baking Spirits Bright paper.   The angle of the fold created the perfect placement for the photos.   Then it was all about adding a few extra embellishments using Bits and PIeces, puffy stickers, and Sprinkles.

I love how this turned out, and I hope that this inspires you to check the new GINGERBREAD KISSES collection. You will love it!

I hope you have all been enjoying all the inspiration using the new Doodlebug Home Chipboard Album.  Well, I have a new idea for your albums and one of my favorite Doodlebug collections, Hello Again.

I wanted something that could house everyday memories in a cute way.  So, I decided to go for a simple design for the cover of the album.  I used Petite Prints and Hello Again as well as the templates included in the album package.

I decided to split the inside pages on an easy formula for photos and journaling. I am using simple pages for photos, with interactive pages with space for journaling and extra photos. I repeat this throughout the album.

In addition, I am opting for using a combination of simple Petite Prints with patterned papers from the Hello Again collection for each of the page stops.  This helped me to easily combine patterns, and embellish the page.

I love large photos, and each page of the album can easily accommodate a 5x7 photo per page.  So, I decided to pair the large photo with an interactive element.  Gotta love how easily the patterned papers combine in each Doodlebug collection.

As I moved through the album, I made sure to stay with one of the collection colors as the starting point for the page. It made it easier to keep the album and patterned papers coherent and fun without overwhelming the pages as it album progressed.

I hope this inspired you to take  a look at the new Doodlebug House Chipboard Albums. You are going to love personalizing them with your favorite collections.
