Pretty Little Studio / Pinkfresh Studio blog hop - Day 2

Hi everyone!!

Pretty Little Studio is so excited to join Pinkfresh Studio to inspire you with some cute creations!!

Pinkfresh Studio is known for their unique embellishments which are so fun and colorful. Mixing them up with Vintage inspired Pretty Little Studio products definitely has created awesome projects.

Today is day #2 of our blog hop combining designers from both companies to share their projects with you. Make sure you visit each blog and comment on each blog INCLUDING PRETTY LITTLE STUDIO BLOG to enter a giveaway. TWO winners will be  chosen for each day and they will receive $30.00 worth of goody bag from Pinkfresh Studio and a $30.00 gift certificate from Pretty Little Studio.      Winners will be announced on 9/15. Good luck!

Here are my projects:

This page is the first one I made in over a month and a half. For those who are following me, you know that I'v been moving. I couldn't wait to get my studio back and to get back to creating!! During the move, my printer was damaged and so for these 2 projects I had to work with pictures I had on hand. This one is one of the rare pictures I have of my grand-parents. I don't have a digital file for it and I was seriously wondering if I should put it on a layout, just like that. Finally I decided to go for it. I'd rather have in on a page that might age awkwardly than to have it somewhere in a box. And that story that I'm telling with it is one I wanted to tell for a long long time.

Here are some details of the products I used and things I've done:

These labels and gold foil letters stickers are from Pretty Little Studio and are some of my GO TO products for every project I make!

Here, the cloud is from Pretty Little Studio, as well as the yellow flair I used to create the sun. The sun rays are made with the cutest tinniest wooden triangles from Pinkfresh Studio. So so cute!!

These letters that i mounted on a golden glittery ribbon are from Pinkfresh studio. There are mint green and the stripes are a gold foil. Just GORGEOUS!!!

This cute little house is a puffy sticker from Pinkfresh Studio. It's the cutest!!!

On the side of my picture I layers some vellum from the Marigold collection by Pretty Little Studio as well as some patterned papers, a golden doily and some cute little woodgrain tabs also from Pretty Little Studio. I use these all the time. They are so versatile!

Here's a glimpse at the journaling, if you can read French. ;)

Here's my second layout:

This is a page about my daughter's 3 year. I decided to pinpoint some main things that happened when she was 3. (She just turned 4)

My favorite part about this layout are the bright and colorful strips on which I wrote my journaling. They are patterned papers from Pretty Little Studio (Baby Claire and Baby Jack Collections) that I cut and arrange to give an ombre effect. Simple enough. :)

The wooden triangles I used on my previous page are here used as bullet points. :)

Here I used different little pieces from Pretty Studio and Pinkfresh Studio (stars and sequins, butterflies, brads) and some more pieces that were on my table.

 Here too, I just added some more cute awesomeness (enamel stickers, butterflies, sequins)

The I love you… came from a journaling card that I cut out with my scissors.

Voilà! I hope you enjoyed my small part of the blog hop. :)

Now hop on to the next blog which would be:
