Use Your Stash!

Margareta here, with some fun fresh fall inspiration for you. I spent last weekend with good friends at the countryside, and I wanted to scrap a couple of photos from the stunningly beautiful fall landscape.

If you are like me, and I suspect that you are, you are shopping more scrapbooking products than you actually use. ;) And, if you're a Pinkfresh Studio fan, which I know that you are, you likely have a lot of Pinkfresh goodies sitting unused. Let's change that today, shall we?

For today's projects I have used all kinds of supplies from the Pinkfresh Studio shop, including the Pinkfresh Studio kit. A few items are sold out and discontinued, some are newer items that are still in stock. Additionally, I used a couple of beautiful leftovers from our Pretty Little Studio blog hop in September, where I worked with the Marigold collection.

To begin with, I had fun while using up the gorgeous coral colored gold foil alpha. I put a few of the letters with their back side up to make the title look more interesting.

The yellow umbrella is from one of the letterpressed 'Fresh press' cards that I cut down. I used the enamel frames to create a border, and filled them with wood veneer, puffy borders and brad stickers.

Glitter and washi tape worked great as a stripe pattern beside the photo. The journaling tag in the canvas tag holder is die cut from watercolor paper and painted with Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.

On the next layout, I had already used up the 'A' letters from the lilac gold foil alpha, so I had to get creative (as you often have to be when you're using your stash) and put the '@' in the title, instead.

Another, often overlooked, part of your stash are the stamps! Bring out your stamps and use them to create a background on a white page! For this one, I used one leaf border stamp image from the 'Hello' stamp set (it's on sale!) and one word stamp from the Pinkfresh kit stamp set. I stamped in no less than 9 different ink colors and tones on this layout (Studio Calico Color Theory inks).

Additionally, I cut down an instaframe for this page, and added wood veneer and drop stickers. The instaframes are currently on sale, as well. I love those! A few banners and golden leaves from the Marigold collection, and this layout was ready to go into my album.

Let's finish with a quick card. I took a letterpressed 'Fresh press' card and decorated with drop stickers and a couple of washi tape pieces. Quick to make, but really pretty.

I hope this has inspired you to bring out your Pinkfresh Studio scrap stash and start creating! One of my own blogs is all about using your stash. It even has the name to match: UseYourStash.com! You are welcome to visit if you want more tips on how to make a dent in your scrap stash. :)

Our big and happy announcement: introducing new logo and a kit club

Hello everyone!

I really can not believe that today is the day I am finally revealing it all. So super excited to share this awesome news and hope you all get a little excited too.

So 1st of of all I wanted to say that we now have a brand new logo. Alot of good and awesome changes are coming to Pinkfresh Studio in next few months so I wanted to kick start it with a brand new logo.

We will be slowly transitioning our website to make it more user friendly and you will see some changes being implemented starting with a new logo. You will still see some of our products packaged using our current logo for next few months. 

And now the part I am most excited about and feeling over the moon to announce it. We started just about a year and a half ago with 5 designs of washi tapes and then added few more products gradually. I am so grateful to have very supportive scrappy friends, lovely Pinkfresh Studio fans and customers. Without you all this would have never been a reality. So many of our fans have messaged me and asked if we will ever have a kit club. And today I am happy to share that starting January 2015 Pinkfresh Studio will have a monthly embellishment kit club. 

You all must be having a few questions about our kit club. Hopefully information below will provide you some insight into it.

Price: It will be 25.00/month + shipping for subscribers and 29.00/month + shipping for non subscribers.

Shipping: Shipping will be 2.50 within USA and we will ship internationally too. We are still working to find a better solution for international shipping. 

Products: We will be including 7-9 different products in a kit (ok may be even more if we can ;-)) and they all will be exclusive. We might include products from our retail line into kits but it will occur occasionally and mostly in an exclusive color combination.

Products that will be included in the kits will always vary but it will always have a die and a stamp. Die might coordinate with the stamp some time but will not be the case always. And we are so happy to share that all of our dies will be manufactured by Spellbinders.

We will partner with some of our creative friends and include an exclusive product from them to bring more variety. Other products included in the kit could be wood veneers, puffy stickers, epoxy stickers, brads, tags, rubon stickers, printed journaling cards, stencils, vellum stickers, buttons, badges,washi etc.

Release date: Our embellishment kit will be released on 15th of every month starting January 2015. Subscribers will be billed and charged on 15th of  every month and it will be available to non subscribers immediately.We are trying to work out an option where our subscribes can bundle things from our shop too and will provide more information on that when we start taking subscriptions. 

Subscription starting date: We will announce a date very soon but we are looking at end of November or 1st week of December right now.

Sneaks: Sneaks for our 1st kit will start sometime in November (just because I can not wait to share our 1st kit with you all). But after our 1st kit is released then sneaks will be released ever on 1st of every month and you will see sneaks on our social media from our design team.

I think I have shared pretty much everything for now but there will be more information coming your way soon too.
