Pinkfresh Studio 4th Birthday Blog Hop

I am thrilled to participate in Pinkfresh Studio’s 4th Birthday Blog Hop!  I have a layout to share with you and I get to giveaway a $40 prize to the Pinkfresh Studio store!!  I love the colors in The Mix 2 collection so I chose that for my layout.  This photo of Mr. Whiskers had the perfect colors in it for a bright bold page!  I cut some white circles on my silhouette the same sizes as the cardstock stickers and added some tracing paper flowers I had cut on my big shot.  I finished the page off with gorgeous yellow puffy hearts.  You get so many on the sheet!!

The Mix 2 has 8 colors of these mini puffy alpha stickers!  I also love that they fit perfectly into many of the labels!

I love that Pinkfresh papers have subtle patterns on the bsides.  I generally like to use a white background and these soft subtle patterns get me using something different than white!

On to the prizes!!!

Unique Titles for Cards – Crate Paper

The Flourish collection has so many possibilities to have a play on words for titles for your cards or layouts. I put the Flourish 6×8 card making pad to work with these cards, so simple to just select a paper and score down the middle and fold and you have an instant card base to decorate!

My first card features the lovely lemons in the Flourish collection, I just had to use the “When Life Gives You Lemons” sentiment! I started with the Lemon Paper for the card base and I fussy cut lemons from the Ponderosa paper and used the lemon branch from the Puffy Stickers. To make the title pop I used both the metallic alphas for loads of bling and stitched through the titles for added interest and texture!

I wanted to make sure I had plenty of dimension on this card. I popped the tag up with cardboard and added foam sticky dots to the fussy cut lemon branch and also the puffy sticker.

For my next card, I chose the pink with green roses paper as it perfectly co-ordinated with the square xo card. I wanted to do a play on the all the xo’s I found in the collection. The gold puffy stickers are gorgeous and I layered them on top of the little square card from the Memorable cut apart paper. I added yet another xoxo at the bottom of the tag from the card stock sticker sheet, the recipient will hopefully feel all the hugs and kisses!! I added a bit of typing to further support the title theme!

The pretty butterfly from the Standouts was the perfect final touch for the card!

It was fun to see what titles I could come up with, whether you use unique items or a unique phrase or words, it really does give your cards that extra special and custom-made touch!

Beautiful Butterflies – Hip Kit Club

I certainly have been dreaming of spring lately and the February 2018 Hip Kits go right along with that dream!  The colors are fresh and delightul.  I used one of the exclusive cut files of the butterflies and bugs.  I cut out only the butterflys and then I fussy cut a load of butterflies from the Crate Paper buttefly paper.  I used 3 standout butterflys from Crate Paper Flourish Standouts found in the February 2018 Hip Kit Embellishment Pak.  I layered the fussy cut and die cut butterflies around a circle and tucked my photo in on the right side.  I added the love chipboard from Pick Me Up for the finishing touch!
