On the left side, I cut down a sheet of the Perfect Moment pattern paper to fill up the entire TN page, and filled in all the labels with puffy stickers, enamel dots, and other embellishments.  I have been wanting to use this paper just in this way for a while now, and I’m so glad I did…I love the way it looks!

1024jungahsang_040519_03

On the right side, I embellished my photo with a journaling pocket, the back side of the Perfect Moment pattern paper, and other embellishments.  I added one of my signature layered/stitched hearts to the left of my photo.  For texture, I adhered some elements with foam adhesive, and added some stitching as well.

2 Out & About layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hello friends!  Today, I’m on the Pinkfresh Studio blog sharing 2 layouts that I created from the new Out and About collection.  Stop by the PfS blog for more photos and information!  One of my favorite pieces from the whole collection is the New Places pattern paper (the one with rainbow stripes).  I love it, and was so inspired by it!

For my first layout, I wanted to document baby girl’s first airplane ride (who is now 2 years old).  I used the New Places paper as inspiration, and I decided to add some machine stitching in stripes and in a rainbow pattern on some white cardstock.  Originally I had planned to cut off the tails of the thread, but then decided that I kid of like the fringed looks, so I just trimmed the pieces that were too long.

1024jungahsang_040119_02

For this layout, I was also inspired by all the circles on the Explore pattern paper.  So using some metal nesting dies, I die cut a few circles from the pattern papers in this collection, as well as my 2 photos.

1024jungahsang_040119_03

I arranged all the circles on my layout until I liked how things looked.  I adhered some of the circles with double sided tape, and others with foam squares to add a bit of interest and dimension.  To embellish my layout I pulled out some circle embellishments and airplane themed embellishments.  I also used some of the enamel dots from this collection, as well as some enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio’s previous collections.

1024jungahsang_040119_04

For my title, I chose the “going places” banner sticker, and then I added “She’s” using the tiny puffy alpha stickers from the Everyday Musings collection.To finish off my layout, I added a strip of the rainbow striped paper to the bottom of my page.

1024jungahsang_040119_01

 

For my second layout, I documented a quick stop to Mt. Scott in OK.  I am using a Pinkfresh Studio cut file called travel tags, which will be available for free in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan group soon.  I used 2 of the cut file tags: one has a mountain scene, and the other says Wander.  I backed those tags with the rainbow striped New Places pattern paper.

1024jungahsang_040119_07

I decided that I wanted to create a background of tags, so I added the cut file tags, and a few tags from the Travel tags pack, as well as a pieces that I cut out from the Bucket List paper to look like tags.

1024jungahsang_040119_08

Next I added my 2 photos with foam squares to elevate them off the tags.  I framed one of the photos with one of the stitched frames.

1024jungahsang_040119_10

To finish off my layout, I embellished the tags and the frames with some of the same pieces from the collection that I used from the first layout.

1024jungahsang_040119_06

I love how my projects turned out, and I hope you do too.Don’t forget to check out the Out and About collection!

Happy Monday!

2 sweet layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio’s Joyful Day

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 2 layouts I made for the Pinkfresh Studio blog using the Joyful Day collection.  The colors and the florals in this collection are stunning, and I had so much fun creating with these products.

For my first project, I made a grid layout, which is a personal favorite of mine.  I am also scrapping photos of my sister’s new corgi puppy.  Her name is Eevee, and she is so cute and feisty!

1024jungahsang_030419_01

On a sheet of white cardstock, I added some pink ink blending, and paint splatters.  For the splatter, I used some Pinkfresh Studio watercolors.  I wanted the perfect shade of blue to match the blue color in the kits, so I mixed a little bit of sky blue, sapphire, lavender, and a lot of water.  I lightly sketched a grid, then added some hand stitching.

I die cut circles from some of the pattern papers in the collection: fresh startsmall beginnings, being us, and big ideas.  I also used the Fancy Floral 1 die to create a tone-on-tone look.

1024jungahsang_030419_06

For my photos, I knew I wanted to frame them with the botanicals circle frame die.  I ended up die cutting the frame from white cardstock 6 times; I wanted each frame to be a layer of 3 frames, so that it would give a dimensional, chipboard effect.  I glued the frames to the photos.

1024jungahsang_030419_04

I arranged my circles on the grid, and once I liked how everything was played out, I started adhering the circles to the layout.

I embellished the frames with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, one of the chipboard frames, cardstock stickers, more puffy stickersmixed embellishments and enamel dots.

1024jungahsang_030419_03

I also used the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set and coordinating dies to create my own embellishments.  The beauty of stamp sets is that you’re able to create your own embellishments in the exact color scheme you want, not to mention you can use them over and over again.

1024jungahsang_030419_05

For my title, I used a mixture of fonts; I used the puffy alpha stickers, and the multicolor mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_02

For my second layout, I used an exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut file, called Folk Motif, which you can access in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page.  I thought the cutfile, and the colors int the collection worked perfectly with the photos of my youngest daughter all dressed up.  Already, she loves to play dress up, and Belle seems to be her favorite princess…or maybe she just really likes the color yellow.  Either way, she is cute, cute, cute!

1024jungahsang_030419_07

I cut the Folk Motif on white cardstock, and I backed the cut file with the pattern papers in the collection: simple pleasures, being us, true story, and small beginnings.

I mounted the cut file on white cardstock.  I adhered it to the left side, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to hang off the edge or not.  In the end, I decided to add a bit of the pattern paper to the left side, because I didn’t want to trim any of the cut file off, and since it was hanging off the edge a tiny bit, I would’ve had to trim it.

1024jungahsang_030419_09

I backed the photos with pattern paper, then started to embellish.  Again, I stamped a few of the flowers and leaves from the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set, and used the coordinating dies to create my own floral embellishments.  I really love how this stamp set seem to coordinated really well with my backed cutfile!

1024jungahsang_030419_11

I also used puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, and enamel dots to embellish the layout.

1024jungahsang_030419_12

I added a simple little title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_10

I love how the cutfile turned out!  It makes such a big impact on my layout, and enhances the photos, rather than overpowers them.

1024jungahsang_030419_08

I really love how my layouts turned out, and I hope you got some inspiration as well.  Don’t forget to check out the Joyful Day collection!

Happy Monday!

2 layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hello friends!

I’m on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today with 2 layouts to share with you using the new Pinkfresh Studio collection called Everyday Musings.  You can head over there for a little more info and photos!

I am kind of playing catch up over here.  At the beginning of the year, I sort and put away all the layouts that I’ve made into their respective albums.  It’s a good time for me to see what layouts I’m missing.  I make a list of “need to scrap” layouts, and I try to tackle them when I can throughout the year.  Do you guys do this as well?  Lets face it though, I’m perpetually behind, lol!  I did get 2 items checked off the list, and they are both from my middle daughter’s album.

The first layout is from her dance recital.  (Please forgive the stars over some of the faces…I’m just trying to respect their privacy!)

1024jungahsang_020519_06

I really wanted to use the chipboard frames from the collection, and a layout with several photos is perfect!  I adhered the frames directly on to the photos, and then trimmed the photos.  I backed a couple of the frames from pattern paper.  I used the Time for Fun & Good Times pattern papers.

1024jungahsang_020519_08

On a piece of white cardstock, I used a star stencil from my stash, and used a little bit of glimmer paste to add some texture to the background.  Then I watered down some of the Pinkfresh Studio watercolors (I used the colors bubble gum & sky blue) to add some color and splatters to my layout. Once dry, I fiddled around with the frames until I had them arranged the way I liked.

Once all the frames were adhered, I added added some embellishments, the flowers and shine on tag from the ephemera pack, hearts and a pink bird from the puffy stickers, and a layered heart sticker.  These layered heart stickers may be my favorite thing from the collection!  I love them!  I just switched the sentiment and the heart to match the color scheme.

1024jungahsang_020519_07

Next I added my title using a combination of the Puffy alpha, and the mini puffy alphas.  I decided to mat my layout, so I trimmed a little off each side of the white cardstock, and adhered it to the Small Things pattern paper.  I added some machine stitching, and then adhered my journaling strips.

I love how this one turned out!

For my next layout, I documented my daughter’s Elementary school award ceremony.  We are so proud of her!

1024jungahsang_020519_01

I really love all the patterns in the paper pack of this collection, and I wanted to highlight them.  I decided to make a layout full of wonky paper strips.  First, I splattered some watered down water color (same colors as my first layout) onto a piece of white cardstock.  Then I arranged the strips of pattern paper, until I liked the way it looked.  I adhered them lightly, then added some machine and hand stitching.

I layered the photo on one of the pattern papers, then adhered it on top of the paper strips with foam tape.  I embellished around the photo with a layered heart, and some flowers from the ephemera pack.

1024jungahsang_020519_03

Next I added my “happy heart” title from the gold foil puffy stickers, and added 3 gold hearts as well.  I finished off the layout with journaling strips, and my layout was done!

1024jungahsang_020519_02

I really love the way this one turned out as well.

The Everyday Musings collection is so colorful and versatile, you can create any layout!  I love it, and I hope you’ll check it out!

Happy Tuesday!

2 layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio

Hello friends!  I’m on the Pinkfresh Studio blog today!

I am sharing 2 layouts I created with the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 collection and a couple of free cut files that you can access on the Pinkfresh Studio Friends & Fans Facebook group.

For my first layout, I used the Mandala snowflake cut file.  I thought they looked really pretty as flowers, so I used them on a layout of my 2 year old.

1024jungahsang_011019_06

I cut the cut file on white cardstock, and instead of piecing it back together, I separated the pieces.  I used the outer edge, and the very inner piece.  I like how there 2 different flowers, and there are 6 flowers instead of 3.  I added some watercolor splatters onto my layout (I used bubblegum, sapphire, and lavender), then glued on the flowers.  I was careful to only add glue to the center, so I could fluff up the petals.  I also liked having a couple of the flowers hang off the edge.

1024jungahsang_011019_10

I added my title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.  My little one is She is 100% sugar & spice (maybe more spice than sugar on some days, ha!).

1024jungahsang_011019_08

I embellished my layout with flowers I fussy cut from the Glen paper, some chipboard hearts, puffy stickers, enamel dots, and the layered hearts embellishments that I made.  I hope you guys aren’t sick of my layered hearts yet, because I love them, lol!

1024jungahsang_011019_09

For my second layout, I used the 2019 Leaves & Lights cut file.  It was the perfect cut file to use with the photo of my 2 younger daughters on New Year’s Eve.

1024jungahsang_011019_01

I backed all the open elements with pattern paper, then adhered them to a light pink cardstock with foam squares.  I matted the pink cardstock on the Valley paper, then stitched around the edges.

1024jungahsang_011019_05

I nestled my photo above the 19.  I embedded it with some pieces from the ephemera pack, some puffy stickers, and enamel dots.

1024jungahsang_011019_03

I also created another embellishment cluster to the top left of the layout, because it was looking a little unbalanced.

1024jungahsang_011019_04

I really like how my layouts turned out, and the cut files make such a big impact on these layouts!  I really hope you’ll check out the Indigo Hills 2 collection, the free cut files, and our FB fan page.

Happy Thursday!
