Hello! Stephanie here today to Share my Hello Sunshine Layout with you today.
There are layouts that are just so much fun to make and this was one of them.
I looked at all the patterns in this collection to choose from and the Bright Blossoms paper stood out immediately. I really like the grid design of the sheets of note book paper because I knew that they would allow me to create 6 different "scenes" on one layout.

I really like layouts that are symmetrical and a grid design almost always provides just that.
I like how they off so many opportunities to play with and add many more different embellishments than I usually would to a page.

I mostly stuck to the Hello Sunshine collection for this one but also added in a Simply Put card insert from the Kraft in Color collection. I cut out the sayings that were in strips and used the ones in coordinating colors. The words were perfect.

For each scene I just played around piecing together different pieces from the collection to make them each unique. I dded in a few other things like Doodletwine, a mini clothespin and paper clip to add some other interest.
The pictures of my niece and her mom were made for this layout, I love how they're laying in the fresh grass enjoying a few moments together.

Thank you for coming by today, we always appreciate when you visit us here on the blog.

love You- A PinkFresh Layout.

Hey guys! I'm struggling tonight with the fact that the weekend is over
And tomorrow is Monday. This weekend flew by!
Anyways I've totally slacked lately with keeping up my blog so to make up for it I'm starting the week off right. Here is a post I did a while back for PinkFresh Studio. 
Even though I stepped down from designing for her I'm still around taking her monthly kit pictures. 
Here's my last layout for them.

Hi everyone! Stephanie here to share my January Kit projects with you.
This was one of my favorite kits I've seen so far from PinkFresh so I was super excited to get to work.
For this layout I wanted my pictures to be the star of the show. I layered on some embellishments from the kit and some from the new Up In The Clouds collection right under my two pictures to draw your eye to the center.

The gold flair badges in this month's kit were to die for, I mean really I could use about 5 of each of them! The rubons were super cool as well.

To give a free falling soft look I emptied out some of the heart confetti right on my page, I removed ones that were in the way of my pictures and just glued them down where they were. 
I love the soft and calm feeling of this page and how the PinkFresh kits lend themselves to so many different styles.

 For my second layout I wanted to keep things super simple. Right away I was drawn to the pattern papers in the new collection so I used one of my favorites for the top half of my page.

I printed my photos in a square collage so I could keep things simple but still include more than one picture. I added in some embellishments from the kit and from the Up In the Clouds collection for a bit more added interest.

I kept my journaling to the point but still heart felt about how much these four pictures have come to mean to me. 

I added some of the rubons underneath of my journaling, how cute are those tiny hearts!? I just can't resist them! Finally I finished my page off my adding another one of the gold flair to the center of my photos.
I don't there there is a single scrapper out there who would not like to add the January kit to their collection, it is filled with so much more than I could even feature on these two pages, the stamps are awesome and the paint stroke dies are some of my most coveted in my collection. 
I hope you enjoyed my projects and they gave you some inspiration to get scrapping!
Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Days Layout By Stephanie Buice

Hello! Recently I was asked to do a guest post on the Scrapbooks and Cards Today blog, here is the post I did for them:
Hi everyone happy Wednesday! I'm so happy to be here with you today sharing a layout I made recently using mostly supplies from PinkFresh Studios.
I am a huge fan of theirs and adore the new Up In The Clouds collection and all of the monthly kits.
The colors are always so amazing and I love how her designs are truly unique and different.
Today I'm sharing my Happy Days layout with you

Before I started my layout I laid all my PinkFresh goodies out to see what I had left and I wanted to roll in them, everything is so perfect!
I decided to start with a white background and build it up from there using the Pattern Circles paper. I knew I wanted them to be my base under my picture.

I began by punching enough of them out to make a grid out of the circles. I chose a variety of the patterns and colors and put them down. I really liked it at that point but knew that it could be way better. The biggest tip I could share with you about these kinds of situations is to always try layering.
Yes my layout would have been perfectly fine with the single gird of circles but I knew that if I spent a little bit more time it could be so much more full and interesting.
So I began punching out other circles in smaller sizes layering them on top of my existing ones. I didn't try to make them all perfectly line up because I really liked the random look and feel of the different sizes and patterns together. Some circles got more layers than others to keep them each unique.

After I got everything where I wanted I sewed down the center of each line of circles holding them together. To add some extra dimension I folded up some of the circle layers.
I finished off my layout with some simple embellishments and a few splatters of black ink here and there. All the Pinkfresh Studio products look great together, don't you agree?

I think her products are great for just about any occasion or subject so go buy some up and given them a try, they make it so easy to fill your pages with fun products that are right on trend yet feel fresh and new.
