Today I am using the awesome new Essentials Tag Die which comes with 7 pieces! Perfect to create so many different projects! I had so much fun creating a sweet and chunky mini album to document our Red Nose Pitbull Lola!

I love creating mini albums and using the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials Tag Die made it super simple to create my base pages. The stitching gives it such a nice finished look and adds that pop of interest to each page.

I used the largest die and cut out some white textured cardstock, vellum and some pattern papers from the beautiful new Days of Splendor collection from Pinkfresh Studio! This collection is gorgeous and worked well to document our sweet Lola Beans.

I love to create pages in all sizes and shapes so I used the smaller tag die and cut out more papers from Days of Splendor and some vellum. The vellum adds a nice texture to the album.

I printed a lot of my photos in black and white and and embellished around them with die cuts, chipboard and stickers from Days of Splendor.

I used some of the tags from the Days of Splendor collection as extra pages in my album. These are also great to add your journaling.

Using the Essentials Tag Die set made it super simple to create this album. I love all the details and the shaped pages. It is the perfect size and I know this set is going to be used over and over again!

I love layering the smaller tag dies on top of the larger tag dies! The florals peeking out on the sides help add interest and make you want to keep flipping the pages. Once great feature of the Essential Tag dies is that you can create windows inside the tags! Perfect for creating shaker elements or using them to frame a photo I like I did for my cover!

The Essentials Tag Die set is a must have in your stash! You will fall in love with creating these fun mini albums or using them on your cards! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my album today! I would love to know if you create mini albums as well! What would you use this die set for? Let me know in the comments down below! Your next stop along the hop is Heather! Have a wonderful day!

Now lets get into my layout using this gorgeous new collection! I love all the beautiful florals in this collection and knew I had to fussy cut the florals in the This Story paper. I used the Always 12×12 paper as my background. It already has a painted mixed media look to it so it was perfect!

I am documenting the photo I took on Father’s Day! We had such a great day celebrating Mike and he was so excited Drake came home to spend some time with us. I popped up my photo using some foam adhesive and added the fussy cut flowers around it. I added a lot of foam adhesive to the flowers to give them some dimension.

I did pull a couple stickers from the Noteworthy collection like the puffy memories sticker I used for my title! The colors were just to perfect not to use it! I added in a few ephemera pieces from the new collection as well and created a small cluster to the bottom right of the page. To finish off my layout I added in a few Pinkfresh Studio My Favorite Story enamel dots and my journaling using the We R Memory Keepers typewriter. Here is a look at my completed layout.

Hip Kit Club | Fave

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a new layout for the Hip Kit Club using the January 2020 kits and an exclusive HKC cut file. You can get access to free cut files on the Hip Kit Club website when you register for a free account HERE!

I backed the cut file with papers from the January main kit and the Pocket Life kit. I added foam adhesive to the back of the cut file and adhered to a piece of white cardstock.

You can check out my process video HERE on the Hip Kit Club YouTube channel or see it down below! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure to head on over to the Hip Kit Club website and check out the beautiful January kits!

Love You | Hip Kit Club

The January 2020 Hip Kits are absolutely gorgeous and filled with the beautiful new My Favorite Story collection from Pinkfresh Studio! You are going to want to pick these kits up! The main kit is perfect and filled with enough product to complete plenty of crafty goodness if you like to be extra like me and buy it all then you will want to check out all the other January kits! For my first project with the January 2020 kits I created a layout featuring circles. I used some circle die cuts and punches to create this clean and simple layout.

I layered up different sized circles to create some dimension and one of my circle die cuts has some faux stitching for some texture. I love the Pinkfresh Studio Floral Ephemera from the January Embellishment kit! I used some of the pieces in this pack around my layout. You can see my completed layout on the Hip Kit Blog HERE and check out the contents of the January kits on my YouTube channel! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release Blog Hop

I am so excited to be celebrating the Pinkfresh Studio Ink Pad Release! You should have arrived from Emily’s blog. You can find the full blog line up linked below. Pinkfresh Studio will be giving away the full sized ink pad release on their blog. Make sure to leave a comment for your chance to win! Each participate in the hop will be giving away a $25.00 gift card so make sure to leave comments along the way. Winners will be announced on the Giveaway Page Monday October 21st and prizes will need to be claimed within 2 weeks.

For my first project I created a 12×12 layout using the mini ink pads in Clementine, Lavender, Regal Kiss, Raspberry Bliss, Sunshine and Grassy Knoll. I also used the Embroidered Blossoms stamps and dies.

I stamped out different florals from the Embroidered Blossoms in the ink color palate I had picked out. I then cut them all out with the coordinating dies.  I used the same color ink to add ink splatters to my white background. Once it was dry I adhered my photo using some foam squares and then began to layer up all the beautiful flowers.

I pulled in some of the Just a Little Lovely acetate ephemera and tucked some in around the flowers. I also added some enamel dots from Office Hours and Just a Little Lovely. Here is a look at my completed layout.

You can see my process HERE on my YouTube channel.

For my second project I created a clean and simple card using the Embroidered Blossoms stamps & Dies and a sentiment from the Oval Foliage Wreath stamp set.

I stamped out a small floral stamp in a rainbow of colors using the mini ink cubes. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies. I lined them up along the left of my card panel and left the top and bottom one hanging over the edge just a little.

I stamped out the sentiment from the Oval Foliage Wreath set in some Pinkfresh Studio Licorice ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Your next stop is the very talented Heather!

Little Moments

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a layout to share that I created using the October 2016 Clique Kit that features Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills!  This kit also has some beautiful papers from Simple Stories Posh collection and a fun mix of embellishments that include Clique Kits exclusives!

16343848_618607068324132_1815356488_n 16395665_618607074990798_483672671_n

I am also using a beautiful cutfile from 17Turtles designed by Juliana Michaels that you can pick up for free on her website!  Make sure to check out her other cutfiles too!

Juliana has a great blog post on this cut file that you can check out HERE with great tutorial on using the cutfile to cut out your pattern paper pieces to back the file!  It has to much faster than tracing and cuting it out by hand like I did!

I cut my file out with some white cardstock from My Minds Eye that I picked up in the Clique Kits shop!  I love this cardstock and has become a must in my stash!

Embellishments I did keep pretty light so the background took the main focus but I did add some of the ephemera pieces from the October kit and some white thread from my stash!

The little moments acrylic piece is from Color Cast Designs and was included in the June 2016 Clique Kit that you can check out and pick up HERE!  I have been hoarding this piece forever and I think this was the perfect layout to finally use it on!  Here is a look at my final layout!  I just love how it tured out!

Today I am going to be creating some pocket pages and using the beautiful 6×8 album from Ashley Goldberg that is available in the Clique Kits shop!

13726723_10154299448751411_3976404555809816855_n 13754582_10154299448851411_5590656984019726595_n

I have a ton of photos with our kids and fur kids so I want to create an album to document all these photos!  This album will be perfect!  This album has a nice thick binding so perfect for documenting tons of photos!

13716115_10154299475851411_2332489642224953896_n

I kept these pages nice and simple and I want to focus more on the photos and the stories so embellishing will be kept very light!

I used the pocket pages that came in the album and one is a 3×4 pocket page and the other is a 6×8.  The Clique Kits shop does also carry other refills at a great price!  I really love the 6×8 size pages!  Creating a small layout like this was quick, easy and fun!  If you are short on creative time then these pocket page albums are fantastic to get your memories documented!
