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