Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Line Up & Escape the Ordinary Blog Hop!


Hello, and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Blog Hop!  I had the privilege of being on the first Pinkfresh Studio Design Team, and I'm so excited to be back.  I have always loved the unique designs of the PF embellishments and papers, and I look forward to sharing monthly inspiration with you!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Beata Valint's Blog.  Let's get to the Hop, and make sure you read all the way through for an awesome GIVEAWAY!!

Today the designers are sharing layouts and projects with the new Escape the Ordinary collection.  This collection is filled with embellishments and papers that can be used for feminine or masculine layouts.  I created a masculine layout for my post today.


The initial inspiration for this layout, was a geometric/origami heart shape.  I checked around on Pinterest for an origami heart tutorial and created mine from one of the papers in the 6x6 paper pad.  Once I had the heart folded, I used my sewing machine to sew a zig zag stitch down the center.



Next, I cut a large geometric shaped heart on my Silhouette Cameo.  Then I layered the smaller origami heart in the center of the larger one.  I mixed the Golden Foil and Leatherette Alpha Stickers to create the title for my layout, wrapping it around the outside edge of the heart.  


I finished the layout, by adding some of the puffy stickers, ephemera pieces and chipboard stickers.  All of the embellishments were perfect for completing the design around the rest of the heart.  I also layered a few other embellishments around the origami heart, to help draw the eye to the center of the layout.




We are giving away the entire Escape the Ordinary collection to one lucky winner and stamps/dies totaling more than $100.00 to one winner.

The Winners will be selected randomly from comments left on each of the DT Blogs.  YOU MUST COMMENT ON EACH BLOG THROUGHOUT THE HOP, TO BE ENTERED AS A RANDOM WINNER.

Comments will close at 11:59PM CST on Friday, August 18th, 2017.
