PFS – Keeping It Real | Sheena Rowlands

Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again x

For this post I will be creating with the Pinkfresh Studio Keeping it Real collection. I think I must have missed this one when it first went in the shop but I’m so glad I discovered it as it’s so versatile.

Right Now.

For my first layout I wanted to document my experiences at work related to Covid.

Using the Keeping it Real – A Little Chaos as my base I then cut all the tags from the Real Life patterned paper.


I wanted my journalling to be private so I created a folded photo mat from cardstock to hide and house it all and added my photo on the top of this. This was positioned on the base layer and I picked out 9 different tags to go around it adding some of these on foam for dimension.


From the puffy stickers, ephemera, chipboard stickers and cardstock stickers I embellished all but 2 of the tags with images and phrases appropriate to my journalling including adding 2 to my photograph to finish.


For this second layout I wanted to take a different direction and focused on the floral ephemera.

Using a teal cardstock as my base, I trimmed down some white cardstock and machine stitched it to the base. I added some pink ink down the centre of the cardstock and added some splatters over this when it was dry.

I matted my 3 photos on the Tiny Victories patterned paper and distressed the edges. Then I added more layers behind this from both some 12×12 and 6×6 patterned papers. I inked a doily and added this to the layers. I tucked various tags in at either end from the Real Life patterned paper. Once it was adhered to the cardstock base I added my title from the Pinkfresh Studio puffy phrase stickers and die cut letters.

Using die cut florals I added some either side of my photos and at the base of the layout. My journalling was written onto vellum and adhered using enamel dots.

I hope these layouts provide some inspiration and you check out this range in the shop. Please share with us your creation over in our Facebook group as we love to see them.

Till next time x
