Soft & Subtle vs. Bright & Bold!

Hi there Pinkfresh loves!  I am excited to share my October projects with you...

I am a fairly diverse scrapbooker, usually basing my specific approach to each layout based on either the photo or products
I want to use.  In this case, I took my cues from the photos and they turned out very different.  One subtle, one not so much.

I recently came across this box of great black & white photos my Dad had taken 14 years ago and developed himself.

I found a couple die cuts that match the Scribble Circle metal die from Pinkfresh and then watercolored them all.   I threw in
some enamel dot stickers and used the wood drop stickers in clusters, to echo the triangles in the background paper.

In complete contrast to the layout above, this photo of these sassy children screamed for bright, bold colors and a fun title!

I used the enamel frame to highlight the Pinkfresh 'Think Less, Live More' stamp I gold embossed
onto a plain white tag.  I also used the gold puffy border stickers in a frame all around the photo.

A few wood veneer color block hearts and enamel label stickers framed the date and other die cuts.
I used the transparent alphas for my title and some wood drop stickers pointing to it.

I love that sometimes a photo inspires a completely different approach, in color, embellishment or theme.
Let yourself be encouraged by the photo and story you have to tell, even if it may not be your typical crafty approach.
 It might lead you to a fun place!
Thanks for stopping by the Blog today...have an amazing day!!

Soft Hues

Hi, Pinkfresh fans! Els here today. Do you love pastels? I've been growing particularly fond of them the past few months, so I couldn't help myself from making a fun soft toned layout again ;)

There happen to be quite a few pastel Pinkfresh embellishment too, so I could mix and match to my heart's content. 

To resonante the tickets, I added a few of the enamel frames in various colors.

The lovely pink chevron wood drop stickers draw attention to the title of the page. And a couple of puffy scalloped borders finish the page up.

And while I had all of this loveliness out on my desk, I also whipped up a card. A very simple one, with just one eye-catching element in the centre.

I again used one of the scalloped borders, which I cut in two to allow it to stick out far enough from either side of the sentiment. A colorblock wood veneer I glued down backwards, to not disturbe the soft toned balance.

Thanks for stopping by today!
