Scrap Shotz March 2016 Monthly Kit Reveal: Pinkfresh Studios

Hello! Thank you for joining us at Scrap Shotz. We are in the midst of revamping the blog and joining Instagram! The blog is changing to showcase not only the monthly kit club projects but it will also feature interesting techniques, both old and new. You will also find new and exciting product features whether you are a scrapbooker, card maker, home decor crafter or a mixed media artist. We strive to feature something for everyone!

To start things off, I'd love to share the layouts I made using the Pinkfresh Studio, Felicity paper line.

The first layout I created was titled, "Joy Full." Whenever I see these pictures of my daughter, I can't help but smile. From the day she was born, she has always been filled with joy.

What fascinates me about this layout is that it was completed from beginning to end in 20 minutes. I saw the pictures; I saw the papers and it was done!

In the header, I used the coordinating Felicity stamp set to augment the geometric patterns. I was in love with the touches of yellow in the pattern paper and decided to add yellow watercolour splashes to the stamping. After I added the yellow, I wanted the complementary watery blue too! The Prima watercolour collection is absolutely wonderful to work with. I am by no means a painter but these water colours and Prima water brushes make it just too easy and so hard to resist.

For the "CALTAF" layout, my pictures were somewhat busy and I loved how the peaceful but graphic patterns grounded the photo block. To align with the Track and Field meet flags, I used the Prima Gold Foiled Washi Tape Stickers to create a banner across the header. I added the uber cute Pinkfresh Studios puffy stickers and some Prima Confections watercolours to the journaling.

A closeup of the washi tape banner and water coloured journaling can be seen below.

The gold foiled uneven chevron vellum paper really captured my attention. In my opinion, that touch of gold foiling took the paper line from Wow to Wowsers! In the layout below, I used it to highlight my photoblock and then I die cut delicate Elizabeth Craft Design butterflies to dance around the photoblock.

The pictures do not do the butterflies justice - sorry! The title is lying on strips of Prima Gold Foiled Washi Tape stickers. 

The team was challenged to use the Pinkfresh Studio puffy stickers and sequins. I chose to use the puffy stickers and sequins to augment the pattern in the pattern paper. I added birds and created dimension in the polka dots on the page. I love the effect. And of course, I added some touches of water colour from the Prima watercolour set.

You can see a close up of the sequins and watercolours here.

In this image, I used the Prima Gold Foiled Washi Tape stickers to create a word block along the bottom of the layout. The words all described my Mom in the photos and grounded my layout. As well, I could not resist the Nuvo glitter drops from Tonic Studios and added that to the flower centres of the pattern paper.

The geometric shapes juxtaposed with the natural elements on the pattern paper constantly grabbed my attention. I knew these pieces would be perfect for my beach photos. Of course I could not resist in painting the florals and birds! Another word block created from the Prima gold foiled word stickers flanked the photo block.

A close up of the water colouring is shown here.

And lastly, with the flip side of my off cuts, I created this fun layout. As I am a paper heavy scrapper, I was feverishly piecing together my leftovers!

Thanks for letting me share! I would love to hear and see your Pinkfresh Studios projects. Link me up in the comments!!!
