Strong | Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers,

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout created using the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary collection!

I started off by choosing a triangle background cut file and cut it out of the blue paper from the Escape the Ordinary collection. I then adhered the cut file to some white cardstock and then backed the whole layout with black cardstock.

I matted my photo with one of the patterned papers in the 6 x 6 paper pad and adhered it in the centre of the page. I knew I wanted to add that large butterfly from the ephemera pack on the left hand side of the photo. I like how it pops and highlights my photo. 

I added lots of the other embellishments to further decorate my page including the puffy stickers, the fabric die cuts, cardstock stickers and ephemera! My title is made from the gorgeous leatherette alphabet from the Escape the Ordinary collection

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Sassy store for this awesome collection and so many more amazing goodies!

Happy creating!

Be True To You | Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share a new layout created using the awesome Escape the Ordinary collection from Pinkfresh Studio

One of my favourite papers from the Escape the Ordinary collection is this one with the vertical running arrows down the left hand side! I just had to use it for a background for my first layout!

Once I had my photo chosen, I layered some of the papers from the 6 x 6 paper pad underneath and placed the photo and paper layers beside the arrows on the right side of them. I then used some embellishments to bring in some of the colours from the arrows over to the right hand side. 

I added all the different embellishments from this collection including the vellum stitched hearts, wooden alphas, chipboard stickers, puffy stickers, fabric die-cuts, ephemera and the layered tags.
A little bit of black mist and the date stamp finished off my layout!

Make sure to check out this collection in the Sassy store now and grab it while you can!

Happy creating!

Pocket Page Insert | Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Boys Rule' | Agnus Kasprzak

Hello again :) I've got another pocket page share using more awesome items from Cocoa Vanilla Studio's 'Boys Rule' collection!

While my previous post focused on the day to day photos from March, this time I used this range to document my little guy's birthday celebrations with a fun insert. 

Even though my regular album format mainly uses 'Design A' page protectors, I decided to swith things up a bit with a different pocket configuration. As shown in the diagram I simply cut down a 'Design D' page protector and used my fuse tool to seal the bottom edge of the pocket in the left hand corner to create the insert.


I used the largest pocket to frame a photo of the birthday boy with one of the die-cut frames from the Miscellany pack and a large title from the pack of Ephemera and really like the effect of using large over sized pieces with my smaller photos.


As with my previous March pages, I again added black foam thickers to help tell my stories.  Using a few die-cuts, clear stickers and ink splatters to dress up my card - the surface of the 6x8" paper pad is slightly slick so be sure to allow extra drying time before handling the cards.



I used the reverse side to document how Cayden spent the day playing at the park in true boy style.


I used more over sized elements to create my filler cards, mixing up the layers with a variety of textures for added interest.

Paradise | Bella Blvd Island Escape | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing my last layout using the beautiful Island Escape collection from Bella Blvd!
I have lost count how many pages I created with this gorgeous collection but I know it was a lot!!

I started off choosing a gorgeous cut file that suits this collection perfectly!! I cut the Paradise word from white cardstock and then backed the letters with some of the different patterned papers! I backed the letter 'D' with my photo! The photo was taken when I travelled to Croatia a few years ago. We visited the stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park and it is AMAZING!!!

Once I had the cut file backed with the papers and photo I popped it up from the background paper with foam tape. I added some embellishments mostly tucking them in around the cut file. I did layer some over the top of the cut file also including that paper strip through the middle of the cut file. 
I love how a large title cut file like this one can determine the design for you! It takes lots of guess work out of scrapping sometimes!!
Make sure to get this gorgeous collection plus check out all the other gorgeous goodies in the Sassy store now too!

Happy creating!
