Geek Lab: Favorite

Happy Sunday friends! I’ve been playing with the gorgeous May Kit. I love Pinkfresh Studio’s products. Their designs are so fresh and fun and I just love them. If I could, I’d decorate my walls in my scrapbook room with their pretty papers, but since that is not possible, I will share a layout where I mixed three different patterned papers together. I LOVE the little houses and plants on this paper. SOOOO cute.

I tried to keep the layout pretty simple, adding a few special touches here and there. I used the “favorite” die cut as my title at the bottom of the layout to help frame the photo. Then I added the flower pot die cut and the puffy star sticker to make the die cut more interesting and to add more texture to my layout to avoid a flat appearance.

I hand cut the paper to create a fun border for the top and bottom of my layout to help frame the layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!



Geek Lab- Machine Sewing tips


First of all, I just wanna say how excited I am to be here sharing my first page on the Clique Kits blog!  And secondly, how gorgeous is the new October Kit Sapphire?!


Here is my first page I created with the kit combining both the Pinkfresh Studios and Simple Stories papers.  I tend to usually stick with one line when I create, even within a kit, so I wanted to mix it up this time.



The large sections of aqua, navy and red seems a bit boring, so I decided to give my sewing machine a workout to add some more interest and jazz it up a bit!


I added a bit of white and gold twine from my stash to coordinate with the other gold elements in the kit like this beautiful wood veneer piece with gold accents.picture-day-1_edited-2

I tried to add continuity throughout the page by adding aqua, red, yellow, and navy accents at each point of the visual triangle.


You can watch how I created this page below, and after that is another video that I created on machine sewing on your scrapbook pages.  I hope you are inspired to break out your machine and add in some more texture and details with some stitches and thread.
