Hey everyone! Suzanne here today, and I am excited to share my very first layout as a Guest Designer for the month of April! I created this page using the beautiful “Skies of Blue” base kit. This kit features Pink Fresh Studio’s “Noteworthy,” collection. As soon as I saw the beautiful chip frame and journaling tags and pockets, I knew exactly what type of layout I wanted to make!
I created a banner effect using pieces from the journaling bits ephemera pack; I also sprinkled in a few pieces from the die-cut ephemera pack. I played around with positioning of the tags, journaling pockets, and die-cut pieces until I was happy with the arrangement. Honestly, the hardest part of this layout was choosing which of these cool little tags to use!
Once I was happy with the placement of my pieces, I stitched them together (no turning back now!) I added a couple of lines of stitching for added texture but mostly to ensure that I had all pieces securely attached.
Next, I simply glued the sewn banner to the background paper and added one of the dimensional butterflies that came with the kit. I thought about adding color to the laser cut chipboard frame, but decided to leave it natural; I didn’t want to add more color to an already colorful background.
Once I attached the frame to the page with double-sided foam adhesive, I added the title directly to the frame using Pink Fresh Studio’s puffy alphabet stickers. I also added some cute floral pieces from the puffy sticker pack to dress the title up a bit. To finish off the page, I sewed a strip of script patterned paper to the top and bottom of the page and added a few drops of white acrylic ink!
Thank you so much for allowing me to share my layout with you today! I hope I’ve inspired or even challenged some of you to give this look a try!
