Sweet April Kit Inspiration

Margareta here with some sweet April kit inspiration for you. I love the colors in this kit! They are so bright and beautiful. I decided to make this page about my niece's 4th birthday. As for every little girl around the world, the only princess that counts is Elsa from Frozen. :)

Bright turquoise blue is the 'Frozen color' above all, and there is some of that in the kit. I added the other colors of green, yellow and coral pink to give my layout a feeling of this early spring birthday date, as well.

The diamond shaped word transparencies are gorgeous, and they look so good together. I chose a few phrases from the versatile stamp set and stamped them as a background in the same colors as the embellishments. The big chipboard word and puffy alpha go perfect together.

There is a sheet with a ton of labels in this kit and I used three of them for this page, and I'm totally in love with the wooden buttons that I put on the top of the page.

I added the patterned paper, enamel hearts and puffies from the Up in the Clouds collection, which I'm still using all the time. It is truly lovely, and definitely my favorite scrapbooking line of all new collections in stores this spring!

Happy Day!

Hello, Pinkfresh friends! This is Jennifer Ingle here with you today sharing a couple of super fun cards using the latest embellishment kit!

Happy Day by Jennifer Ingle #pinkfreshstudio #upintheclouds #embellishmentkit #cards

For this card I grabbed a super adorable patterned paper from the Up in the Clouds collection and then used various embellishments to accent it. The puffy alphabet stickers made for the perfect sentiment! I stamped on one of the label tags and stapled it to the top of my card. A single green wood bead replaced the flower to create dimension.

For this card I used one of those great chipboard words from Um Wow Studios. I used my Gold Wink of Stella to add both sparkle and color and combined it with some gem stones and that fabulous washi tape.

Keep an eye on the blog for more inspiration showing off this fantastic kit!

April guest designer: Amélie Mordret

Hello Pinkfresh fans!

 My name is Amélie Mordret. I’m 37 years old. I’m married and have two boys. The eldest is 9 years old and the youngest is 3. I'm from France but since a few months, I live near Philadelphia PA. I started scrapbooking after the birth of my first son. I wanted to make him a baby book, and I have been addicted ever since.

I have always been really creative, and I enjoy drawing & painting. Scrapbooking has been a great avenue for me to express my creative side. I love making layouts and cards and occasionally mini-books.

I scrap whenever I can find free time. It allowed me to get away from the stress of my professional life but now I'm a stay at home Mum;)

I don’t really have a particular style, it really varies from project to project. I just love playing with different papers and trying new techniques. My projects often include stitching and lots of layering.

I am happy to share with you my first layout with the April embellishments kits. I really love the different shapes of this kit and as I like playing with shapes, this kit was such a pleasure to work on! I choose as background a paper from Crate Paper with some patterned squares. I decided to highligh the squares with washi tape along one of them.  I added some little enamels on the beautiful wood shape which fits perfectly with the pic of my son in the field. I colored some flowers with a yellow ink spray and added some little enamels to it to create more texture. I added some other squares made with the die and also colored them with some yellow ink spray. I dispose them around my pic to enhance it. To finish I placed the transparency losanges! I hope you will enjoy it!

For this layout, I decided to play with the washi tape color palette. I embossed  my die cuts frames with some gold powder and added here and there some little enamel dots. I love how this combo highlight this precious pic!

I hope you enjoyed these layouts.
