Pinkfresh Studio Essentials 3 Release Blog Hop


Hello Pinkfresh friends,

Welcome to the Essentials 3 Release blog hop, full of amazing products and gorgeous inspiration! My most favorite card making supplies are standalone dies, so I'm pretty excited about this release! I wish I had had more time to try each one of them, but I'm sure you guys know how busy the end of the year gets!

I decided to create a mini Christmas banner with the smaller die from the Ornate Banner die set. I'm thinking, I should make a mini box for it and then it will be a cute present for a friend!


I die cut the banners from Home for the Holidays papers - here I used the little teardrop shaped die at the bottom too. I also die cut the banners from heavy weight white card stock that I layered behind each patterned paper banner so they are nice and sturdy. 


This striped background I had left from a previous project, I thought I might as well use it! I had enough for 2 banners!


I die cut each letter from the same patterned papers, using my favorite Kelly Alpha Upper Case dies. I glued them on heavy weight card stock, inlaid the little fall out pieces too, then fussy cut the letters out - again, nice and sturdy. I like my projects to stand the test of time! 


So that my letters stand out from the background, I added a white square to each banner. To create these, I used two new die sets: Diagonal Stitched Squares and Stitched Squares. These are really great basic shapes that I'm sure I'll use a lot!

I then added bits and pieces from the Home for the Holidays scrapbook collection to each banner, puffy stickers, stickers, wood buttons, layered stickers and enamel dots.


Last but not least, I added some gold eyelets to each banner and threaded pink ribbon through them. 


While I was at it, I made a second banner for my table decor piece! This time I die cut the banner from blush card stock. I did add a second layer of white heavy weight card stock behind it. I also die cut the tear drop shapes from white card stock and glued them in place.


For the letters I used citrine card stock and this time I left the patterns open, so the white backing could peak through. I adhered the letters in the middle of the banners.


To add something a little different, I used one of the dies from the Teardrop Tag with Fillable Elements die set to create a white ornate border at the top of my banner.


I then punched two holes in each banner and added some eyelets. I'm not sure what color these are, some kind of metallic brown or so. Works well with the color of the pine cones in the glass!


I used the same pink ribbon as before, and secured the banner on the glass with a bow.


This is what's inside! The brush trees have such a pretty color and shape and they are on concrete stands which I find super cool. 


There you have it! I rarely do home decor because we just have no space, but I loved working on something different for a change! Hope you like these projects too :).
