Fresh Inspiration Day 2: With April Joy

You all are going to love today's post showcasing April Joy's mini using Pinkfresh Studio's products. But 1st I would like to announce a winner for yesterday's give away.

Please email me at info@pinkfreshstudio.com and I will get your prize to you.

Now back to today's fresh inspiration. April is so talented and I just love the way she uses all her dies and experiments different products to do so. Her style is very simple yet eye catching. 

Here is what she wants to say about herself.

Hiya!  My name is April and I’m a 37 year old, Hello Kitty and exclamation point loving, child at heart.  I moved to the Midwest in 2009 for a job transfer and a “big change”.  It was the best decision I ever made.  I met a great guy on OkCupid in 2010 and we just got engaged this Summer.  At home I have two adorable cats who are my fur babies. They are great, sometimes reluctant, models for photos.  I resisted papercrafting until I got the Silhouette Cameo in 2011.  In early 2012 I ordered a Sizzix Big Shot. It was embossing and manual die-cutting that appealed to me more than electronic cutters.  There is this satisfaction of manually cranking, or in my case pushing a button.  I’m ashamed to say I haven’t turned on my Cameo since early 2012. 

I had so much fun working with Pink Fresh Studio’s washi tape with my steel rule dies. It  was surprising how versatile washi tape is. One handy thing about the enamel frames and shapes was that they all came on clear acetate. This makes it easy to test out placement. All the products were easy to work with and coordinated with each other. I can't wait to use Pink Fresh Studio's embellishments on my other projects!!!

Today if you place an order for 15.00 or more then we will include plano washi for free along with your order. No need to enter any code. Offer valid till 9/25, 12.00 pm CST
