Smile | Pinkfresh Studio Escape The Ordinary | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

Today I am back to share a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Escape the Ordinary collection by Pinkfresh Studio!

I started off my layout today by choosing the green background paper as my base to work on and build up some layers on. I also picked my photo so that I knew what colours I was going to be able to add to the page.

I matted my photo with a few of the papers from the 6' x 6' paper pad plus I also cut the strip from the small red paper that says 'Always Be Brave', I sometimes like to add quotes like this on pages where I have scrapped about myself, its a nice reminder to myself!

I also loved the 'Smile' chipboard piece and placed that just above the 'Always Be Brave' strip. The gorgeous black, white and gold butterflies definitely pop on my page and I love how they both look. I added some leaf ephemera and chipboard underneath in a horizontal design. I added some of the gorgeous cardstock stickers at the top and bottom of the photo and I love how they look too!  

To finish off I added some small stars, some gold Heidi Shine and the date stamp that the photo was taken.

I hope I have inspired you to pull out your Escape the Ordinary collection and create! Or if you don't have this collection, pop into the Sassy store and purchase it now!

Happy creating!

Catch of the Day | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you to share a new design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the awesome 'Fish Story' cut file!

Fish Story cut file

The Catch of the Day part of this cut file made the perfect title for this layout! I decided to ungroup the whole title in the software first so I could cut one part of it with one colour paper and then I cut the individual letters to go back into the centres in another colour paper. Once I had adhered the letters back in, I took out my black pen and outlined them to make them pop a bit more.

I really needed a pop of red so I decided to cut the fishing rod out of red cardstock, I really like how I was able to place this in the background and then layer everything else over the top! Of course I had to add a die-cut fish to end of the line! 

I added a few water and fish embellishments like stickers, die cuts and wood veneer that went along with the theme of the page and lastly added some black mist splatters to finish off! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

Summer Fun | July 2018 Main Kit | Hip Kit Club

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Hip Kit Club for all our Main Kit only subscribers out there! I have created a layout using only the gorgeous July 2018 Main kit!

I started off by choosing the awesome July Summer Fun circle frame cut file available for free download on the Hip Kit website. I cut this out from the Illustrated Faith paper from the Main kit and adhered it down onto a plain white cardstock background.  

I then added some machine stitching around the circle part of the cut file, I love how this adds texture plus also helps to secure the cut file in place.

I could not go past the amazing exclusive Hip Kit Club ephemera pack from the Main kit this month! I added loads of pieces from the pack to embellish my layout plus I also added some of the cute epoxy stickers too. 

This layout just screams Summer to me, especially with a photo like this one of my Mum jumping off the jetty with her grandson!  My title is 'This Makes Me Happy' and is also from the exclusive ephemera pack, don't you think it makes the perfect title for this page!?

I hope I have inspired you to create a layout or any project using just the gorgeous July 2018 Main Kit! Make sure you share it with us!

Happy creating!

Blood Moon | Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Escape the Ordinary collection by Pinkfresh Studio!

I love anything to do with the moon and stars and this collection is perfect for documenting interesting sky events! The recent lunar eclipse blood moon was quite hard to see where I live but I did manage to get a few photos! This photo in particular is not my photo but a friend's who is a professional photographer! She captured it brilliantly! 

There are quite a lot of embellishments in the Escape the Ordinary collection that refer to the moon and stars so I pulled out anything that had to do with the theme. I love the Chase the Sun chipboard piece and also the Love by the Moon chipboard piece, I knew I wanted to add both of those to my page.  

I also loved the 'Something Beautiful is on the Horizon' paper strip, I like how that looks added across my photo. For my title I decided to use both of the alphabets from this collection, starting with the wood and gold one for the word 'Blood' and the leatherette one for the word 'Moon'. 

A few little star pieces and a couple of puffy stickers finished off my layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy creating!

Hello Gorgeous | Wild at Heart | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a Throwback Thursday layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the gorgeous Wild at Heart collection!

Throwback Thursday means us CVS design team members can create using one or more older collections on our project.

I started by matting my photo with the pink end of the Luscious paper and I added a photo corner and a small banner to the photo also. I chose the gorgeous Artisan paper for my background and adhered my photo down while also tucking in a paper doily and the doily from the Wild at Heart ephemera pack

For my title, I fussy cut the 'Hello Gorgeous' out of the Fussy Cuts paper I think this is a very fitting title for my layout because of this beautiful photo of my niece! I have two stunning nieces who both make scrapping girly pages a dream! So thankful for them in many ways <3 font="">

I embellished my page with lots of ephemera pieces including the pretty flowers and some of the gorgeous butterflies too. I added a few phrase stickers and leaves in also for more interest and a pop of the pretty jade green colour.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to pull out an older collection or go shopping for one and get creating with it!

Happy creating!

These Are The Moments | Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

Today I am back to share a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Escape the Ordinary collection by Pinkfresh Studio!

This week I wanted to focus on the gorgeous layered tags included in the Escape the Ordinary collection! I decided to arrange them how I liked them, once I was happy I adhered them down in place. I decided to add a few little extra embellishments to each tag including stitched hearts, stamps, ephemera and puffy stickers. 

This photo is of my gorgeous sister with her beautiful eldest daughter, I love the tones in the photo so it was a perfect one to use on this layout. Everything co-ordinated perfectly! 

I love the stitching detail on all the tags, it really adds a pop of great texture along with fabulous visual interest! Sometimes I struggle with how to use these types of tags but I figure if I added them all, I couldn't go wrong right? 

I finished off with some splatters of black mist and the date stamp! I really like how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Check out the Sassy store for this collection plus loads more gorgeous must have products!

Happy creating!

I Could Cuddle You Forever | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you and I am sharing a new design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the awesome Basket Weave background cut file



I cut the basket weave cut file from a pretty ombre pink and yellow paper by Paige Evans. Once it was all cut out, I pulled up the thin outline to reveal all the small inner pieces on the mat. 

I lightly adhered the thin outline piece with some washi tape to some white cardstock and then began to adhere all the pieces back into the cut file like a jigsaw puzzle. Once they were all back in place and glued down, I pulled up the outline again. I love it turned out!

I kept the embellishing fairly simple for this page so not to cover up too much of the background cut file effect. I mostly added some embellishments to highlight my photo by placing them framing my photo.

I think this is such an awesome effect especially with the ombre paper! Why don't you give it a try? We would love to see what you create using a similar technique! Share with us in our Facebook group called The Cut Shoppe Scrap Spot!

Thanks for stopping today!

Happy creating!
