Pinkfresh Studios Mix part 2 | Giselle Homer
Hello again Magpies,
I’m back with two more layouts to share using a mix of collections from Pinkfresh Studios. My first layout is a simple one but shows how items from these collections can be combined.
KARATE IN THE PARK
I started by selecting a pale grey striped background which I tore at the top left corner. I inserted a piece of bright yellow paper behind the tear and added a few embellishments which included die cut flowers, a puffy word and some tags.
Then I grouped my three small photos together, mounted them on top of a large floral tag and three cut-apart pieces from the Super Cool collection. I used a couple of phrase stickers which I thought were quite appropriate, given that Karate practice is usually done inside! I added my title below the photo group and used a journalling label for the secondary title.
I placed more embellishments around the photos that included die cut flowers, a puffy camera, two phrase stickers and some enamel dots.
I cut part of an oval chipboard frame and placed it above the photos at the top right. I tied a thread to the tag and called it done!
My second layout today is very different; I wanted to record how the pandemic has affected two of my grandsons. It might prove to be a helpful memory jogger when they’re looking back at these strange times that we’re experiencing!
I began with a large house shaped cut file which I backed with a darker paper to form a frame that made it more prominent. I chose a sheet of neutral paper with pale diagonal lines as my background.
After deciding where my photo would go, I printed it to fit in one of the shapes. I backfilled the rest of the cut file with an assortment of papers and icon embellishments.
I included some puffy shapes, phrases and stickers from a few different collections which you’ll find listed below.
I found a journalling card that included the words ‘Family Memories’ and luckily it fitted into a shape next to the photo – after I trimmed it a bit! I printed my journalling, cut it into strips and glued it into place. (You need to be a Star Wars fan to understand the last line of journalling, which these boys most definitely are!)
I glued the completed cut file to my background paper and chose a large phrase sticker to place alongside the slanted roof shape at the top.
I glued an acrylic word to the lower right corner, which filled an awkward shape left by the size and shape of the house!
That’s all from me for this month. I hope you share your layouts on our Facebook page, I look forward to seeing your ‘lockdown’ layouts!
Until then, happy scrapping everyone.
