Sweet Little Things

Little girls in fairy wings, cute cats and happy mail from a friend. Today's Pinkfresh inspiration from me, Margareta Carlsson, couldn't be sweeter.

For the layout below, I used the amazing Pinkfresh Studio kit (frame, puffy borders and die cut circle from one of the gorgeous vinyl cards). That kit is some seriously good value for your money, so grab it while you can. The embellishments will last for at least 10 layouts, if not 15, and a bunch of cards to that. And when they're gone you will still have the stamp set and craft die left to use perpetually.

The drink stamp to the left on this page is from the cute Summer Time stamp set.

I love how the bright yellow color tones and hot pink look together. Yellow is very much on trend right now, and many scrappers feel that it is a challenging color to use one pages. But, a few splashes of sunshine yellow can really brighten a layout, so I encourage you to try it!

On my second layout, I've been playing with an enamel frame (still can't get enough of those!) and different screen printed wood veneer shapes. The cut paper strips are colored vellum, except for the one at the bottom, where I used deep navy blue cardstock. I love how vellum gives a dreamy sheer touch to the pages.

Here, I've been using another on trend color combo, navy blue and lime green. Perfect to accent the amazing bright lime green eyes that my black cat had when she was young. Today she's an elegant old lady and her eyes are more deep yellow with grey age spots in them.

To finish, I made a card that I'm going to use for sending some happy mail to a scrapbooking friend. It feels great to share a few pretty goodies in my scrap stash with good friends. Again, I used the Pinkfresh studio kit (puffy borders and stamp set) and a wood veneer envelope.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Now I would love to hear about your next project? What products are you going to use? Perhaps a little something from Pinkfresh Studio? What is the theme? Colors? Please, feel free to share your paper dreams and plans in the comments. :)

Point the Way with Wood Veneer & More

Hello Fresh lovers!  Jenni here today to share my recent projects using lots of Pinkfresh Studio goodies!

Sometimes wood veneer embellishments are a great way to add a bit of color or decoration to a layout.
After seeing these screen printed wood chips with the 'Vacation' theme, I knew I would be using them
to do more than simply embellish!  I have been busy documenting loads of photos from our summer trip abroad.  
I decided to use these wood chips to 'point' to everything from the title, journaling and even the actual destination!

I punched a little circle of map print to add a bit more emphasis to the round chips and they also inspired the title,
since so much traveling is spent waiting around.  I loved this frame stamp from the 'Think Less Live More' stamp set.
Especially since, clearly my kids aren't thinking much in these photos, dreaming maybe! 

My next page using another photo from our trip and the coral/gold striped alphas helped me choose the colors.
The canvas pocket gave me the idea to line up tags all the way across the page and used a couple stamps on two of them.
I again used the color block wood veneer arrows to point to the title.  I also cut the scribble circle out of glitter cardstock using
the metal die in the Limited Edition kit.  It cut beautifully and I tucked it under the photo and some crepe paper.

Supplies:  Limited Edition kit, '& Hello' clear stamp, Color block wood veneer (chevron arrows & hearts),

I have been hoarding this transparent card since receiving the Limited Edition kit and knew I needed to
make a simple card with it.  I couldn't take anything away from the quote and simply added a piece of
washi and a couple wood veneer hearts to the transparency.  The solid black printed circle on these cards
are the perfect place to hide adhesive too!

Supplies:  Limited Edition kit, Ombre Airmail purple & teal washi, Color block wood veneer hearts

Finally, I quick card I made for my daughter using the 'Summertime' and 'Think Less Live More' stamp
sets to create a little scene.  I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and added a bit of the puffy
scallop borders in the background to separate the grass from the blue sky.

Supplies:  'Summertime' clear stamp set, 'Think Less Live More' clear stamp set, Limited Edition kit

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  I hope one of my projects inspired you to get fresh with your layouts or cards!
Have an amazing day!
