Mam Tor | Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best | Amy Kattenbelt
Hello Scrappers, Amy here again. I am sharing another layout created using Pinkfresh Studio’s collection called “Simply The Best“. I am using it to document a 6″x4” photo of a walk we took whilst on holiday in the Peak District this summer.

Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best – Puffy Alphabet Stickers
Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best – Hangout Patterned Paper
Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best – Worth The Hype Patterned Paper

Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best – Ephemera Die cuts (I used 3 from the pack)
Pinkfresh Studio – Simply The Best – Enamel Dots (I used 2)
Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide Inkpad – Mustard Seed
Tim Holtz – Dot Fade Stencil
49 & Market – Acrylic Filmstrips – Lagoon (I used 1 large piece)
White 12×12 Smooth Cardstock
From my own stash – Date Stamp, Tiny Attacher Stapler, Glue and paper trimmer.
Before I started this layout I knew I wanted to build my layout design around the chipboard frames. They are lovely quality and thinner than some other brands which means they don’t bulk up your finished page. First, however, I started my layout by using the Mustard Seed oxide and the faded dot stencil on the middle of the background. I moved the stencil around to cover a larger area, but made sure the dots always ran parallel to each other with no overlap.
Next I cut two long stripes of patterned papers. The edges were torn, distressed and curled before sticking them to the left hand side of my white cardstock. Then I matted my 6×4 photo in the green patterned paper and very slightly distressed the edges. I stuck it down, but didn’t apply any glue to the edges of the photo so I could tuck the frames under.
I took one of the large acrylic film stripes and cut it into 4 pieces, 1 larger than the other 3. I then placed a piece on each photo edge. This formed the first layer of my frames. I then layered up most of the square shaped chipboard frames, tucking some behind the photos and paper strips. I cut a lot of them in half and placed them in two different locations, getting more for my money.
Next I added my title, the place we were walking in the photo, using the green puffy alphabet stickers from the collection. I decided to use all capital letters to make the title larger and help it stand out, but the alphabet stickers come with lower case as well. The date was stamped under the title.
To finish my layout I added a few of the die cuts. I used a foam dot to stick a yellow star on top of the green pendant chipboard sticker (that comes with the frames set). I added the word ‘legendary’ and I added the days of the week vertical piece to the corner. To highlight what day it was I used two small orange enamel dots either side of ‘Wed’.
Thank you for taking the time to come and read about my layout. Take Care,
