Enjoy and Smile | 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 awesome Escape the Ordinary collection by Pinkfresh Studio!

The inspiration for my layout today came about from my son's red jumper in the photo! Plus both my sons are going on a bushwalk so it was the perfect photo to team up with this collection! I flipped through the 6 x 6 paper pad and ripped out the red paper with all the quotes on it. I loved that I could cut them into strips and adhere them above and below my photo. 

As you can see I went with a fairly red theme on this page, pulling out lots of different bits and pieces that were red from the collection, like some of the cardstock stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard stickers and ephemera. I added some small touches of black and grey also to break up the red. 

I added a couple of embellishment clusters around the page including the one above with part of the layered, the Wild puffy sticker and the star and flower chipboard stickers. I love to cluster embellishments and I especially love to overlap embellishments onto my photo.  

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

Happy creating!

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

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.
