I'm sharing two new layouts today that I've created with the stunning Everyday Musings collection from Pinkfresh Studio.
The first one I created as soon as Paige Evans posted this new split image cut file, Flower Borders! I've made several layouts like this before but not in a long time, and it reminded me how much I love it. There are actually a couple of Pinkfresh stamps and dies that are like this, for instance the Lush Greenery stamp and die sets or the Bloom stamp and die sets. I made one of my favorite cards with the Lush Greenery set, you can check here.
I cut the designs from white, textured card stock and backed them with various patterned papers from the collection, to bring in as many colors as possible. I love colorful things! Once done, I figured out the placement and glued the two cut files down onto the Sweet Escape paper I selected for background. I created my title using the wonderful, wonderful puffy alphas! Originally it would have been Palm trees and sandy feet but I didn't have enough space haha!
Just look at those alpha stickers! Perfection! The design, the colors, the font, all of it!
I then went through all embellieshments and selected some that I thought would fit: mainly labels and stickers. I also fussy cut some flowers and leaves from the Beautiful patterned paper and tuck these in behind the cut file. I cut apart some of the gold puffy flowers and placed them on each side of the cut files.
To finish off my layout, I added my date and journaling.
I wanted to go with a different color scheme on my second layout and use some of the blue papers which I haven't used yet. I chose a beautiful floral cut file from Handipaper and cut it twice. I wanted to nest my photo in between the two cut files. I backed them with mostly blue and red patterned papers and glued them down on the background, for which I chose the B side of the Beautiful paper.
What I was the happiest about was that there were various blue and red alphas I could use! I love that color combo!
I layered some of the pockets behind my photo, just to add a little bit of color. I added a few die cut pieces, stickers and a sweet little layered heart.
I wrote my journaling in one of the big flower centers and stamped my date on a label tucked under my photo. That's about it!
I hope you like today's inspiration as much as I loved working on them!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day!
