Hello, Pinkfresh friends! Today I’m back to share two new layouts using the gorgeous Joyful Day collection. I’m in love with the soft colors and patterns of this collection – it’s just too pretty for words.
I used exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut files for both of my pages. You can find them in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page.
The first layout features the new Spring Floral Trio cut file. The cluster of flowers was perfect for what I had in mind.
I cut the image three times, slightly varying the size for a more realistic look. I backed them with several patterned papers; for the leaves, I used True Story, while for the flowers I mixed Perfect Moment and both A and B side of Just Right.
Once ready, I adhered them to my background, for which I chose the Small Beginnings patterned paper, with foam adhesive – I’m a big fan of dimension and always try to achieve it on my pages. To add more interest and even more dimension to the flowers, I placed other flower images in the center, mixing die-cuts, chipboard and puffy stickers.
I then created layers behind my photo before gluing it down, and tucked die-cut sentiments in between. To embellish it, I added one of the super cute paper clips, the Happy place banner sticker, and the lovely bow, which fit perfectly in the top left corner. The puffy sentiment stickers are so fun to use as titles; here I used the “adore” one, to which I added the “you” below with the Mini Alpha Puffy Stickers. Enamel dots and black paint splatters finished the page.
For the second layout, I used the Simply Leaves Square cut file.
I didn’t want it to take the full background and cover the gorgeous blue of the Frest Start patterned paper, so I just fussy cut the branches and arranged them in a diagonal on my page. I love how the white cut file pops against the darker background!
A lot of layering going on on this layout as well. I printed my photo in black and white as well as in color, and used this second one as my first layer; I then cut the floral wreath ephemera in two and arranged it on opposite corners of the photo – I did the same with the round scalloped chipboard frame. I used several dimensional stickers to embellish the right side, and added two paper clips and puffy sticker leaves.
Following the diagonal design of the cut file, I filled up the page with lots of gorgeous decorative pieces. I combined chipboard stickers, die-cuts, wood buttons, fabric banners and enamel dots. White paint splatters finished the layout.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I love how these layouts turned out and hope to have inspired you to create with the gorgeous Joyful Day collection and the exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut files.
Until next time. Have a lovely day!
