{crafty} Pinkfresh Studio April Blog Hop




Hello there! Welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio April reveal blog hop!  If you came from Agnieszka's blog, you are in the right place! If not, head over to the Pinkfresh blog to start from the beginning.

I have so much fun playing with these embellishment kits that I often use nothing else on a layout besides some essentials, yes that includes paint and mist for me! ;-)  I did pull in a few small pieces from the Up in the Clouds collection and previous kits here as well.


I used the die to cut out several frames from a watercolor background I created and then used the coordinating stamp set to border each frame and add sentiments.



The wood veneer designed by Wilna Furstenberg is just gorgeous! I colored it in with Tim Holtz distress markers and then sprayed a little water on it to bleed the color.




 Leave a comment below and on each stop along the way to enter to win the full April kit! And don't forget to stop back at the Pinkfresh Studio blog and comment on your favorites from the hop for your final entry! The winner will be chosen Wednesday the 22nd.

>>>Up next in the hop is Cassandra!<<<

{crafty} Favorite Layouts this Year

Hello there! It's certainly been a light posting year hasn't it? Life is funny that way! While I haven't gotten around to posting too much, I HAVE gotten the chance to create. I thought I'd take the time to pull together some of my favorites. 











So, that's them! I wish I could say I created hundreds of layouts this year, but well that just didn't happen. And won't any time soon. I am so happy with what I have created though and hope to push it even further next year. I may even be attempting PL. Again. We'll see how that goes!

Thanks for looking!

{crafty} Pretty Little Pinkfresh

Hello there! 

Pinkfresh Studio is so excited to join with Pretty Little Studio today to inspire you with some cute creations. You should have come directly from the Pretty Little Studio blog. If not, be sure to head back over there!




It has been so fun to pair these two companies together! While Pinkfresh is normally known for bright and unique items, Pretty Little Studio is known for their fun vintage inspired products!They have definitely combined to create some awesome projects!


For my first layout I new I wanted to use several of the Chrysanthemum Mini Tags from PLS. I layered them on my page before adding a layer of gesso and gelatos. As soon as I decided to orient them at the top of the page I knew I wanted to to add lots of string and falling feathers. I just love how the soft colors and vintage number die cut pairs so nicely with bold color and graphic embellishments from Pinkfresh. 




My second layout is more linear and structured. I find I tend to go that direction when I want several photos on a layout. Since I have several busy photos I resisted the urge to layer the embellishments and really just tried to let them shine on their own. 


Supplies used: Wood Drop Stickers Chevron Brights, Foil Printed Alphas Mint/GoldVacation Chips Wood Veneer, Anya Alpha stampLimited Edition kit Studio Puffs. Watercolor Summer Word stickers, Birds Nest Bunting Flags, Peony Paper Ribbons, Wild Berries Paper Ribbons, Clematis tabs, Gold Circle Vellum


Thanks so much for looking today! Your next stop is Agnieszka Piskorz, head on over to her blog to see how she paired these two companies together!  Visit each blog in the hop and comment on each to enter a giveaway including the Pinkfresh Studio blog. One winner will be chosen for each day and winners will receive 30.00 worth of stuff from Pinkfresh Studio and 30.00 GC from Pretty Little Studio. This is going to be 2 days of blog hoping fun. Winners will be announced on 9/15. Good luck!




On top of the awesome giveaway I mentioned Pinkfresh Studio and Pretty Little studio are also offering special discounts during the hop! It's a great time to do some shopping!
