I accepted the invitation from Kinnari to play with Pink Fresh Studio's August kit and Happy Things collection way back when Happy Things collection was still being designed. I saw one photo of a patterned paper and said yes! :) That's how much I love Pink Fresh Studio's stuff!
I've been subscribing to their kits since January, loving them all and August did not disappoint. If you're like me, their embellishment kit is the way to go. Given a choice, I would part with 95% of my patterned paper and will still be able to scrap and stay true to my style. Embellishments and stamps, however are a whole different story, and why I'm subscribed to Pink Fresh and Story Stamp by Ali Edwards.
Almost always the photographer, even when being photographed. :)
My brother-in-law took this photo of me taking photos of Neha at the abandoned house next door. I thought it’s perfect for this layout.
I stamped #thestoryofmylife repeatedly using various shades of black and grey ink. Love how that turned out. I’m also a little bit obsessed with black and white at the moment, that Doodle Borders patterned paper from Happy Things collection is totally made for me. LOL.
I also scattered some of the acrylic xs on my layout. I can’t get over how beautiful they are.
Love The Details
Look at that Doodle Borders patterned paper being the star of my layout again! I used the 12x12 this time and made it the background of my layout, making sure that my white cardstock is cut smaller so that more of that beautiful piece of paper can be shown off.
I cut apart the labels and stitched them back onto the layout, using what else but yellow thread. I love machine stitching with yellow thread. Don’t ask me why, I just love the way it looks.
Another current love of mine on this layout is the (Happy Things collection) black glittery foam word sticker. I’m totally gonna be using up the rest of my pack and will be ordering more! :) I also used up all the hearts from (Happy Things collection) puffy stickers pack. I love scattering small bits of embellishments that way, they make me, well, happy! :)
The journaling is quite private for this one so I wrote it on the back. :)
I have lots left from the box Kinnari sent me (thank you K!) . . . and I know I will enjoy them for a long time to come!
