When I found out Dream On from Pinkfresh was going to be April Lilli‘s feature collection this month I was so excited. All those bright pastel tones paired with primary hues, an amazing alpha and dreamy die cuts! Here’s a quick slideshow of all of the fun stuff from this collection I’m working with this month:
Winter is JUUUUUSSSSTTTTT ending here. And there’s no guarantee it won’t come back for one more roar. But this layout is from a few weeks back – half of my weekly Project Life album spread that week was about how much fun I had with my younger son at Beaver Scout Winter Camp! And what better to dress up some cold pictures than with a splattering of colour.
The different pieces in this collection were super easy to work with. Everything went well together and there are some great captions, phrases and cut parts to help jazz up a layout.
Those alphas!!! Seriously, they are just SO pretty. I layered them on top of the vellum foil paper from the collection as a focal spot in the middle. And can I just say I love the cute rainbows and stars and hearts in this collection. I like basic elements like that in fun colours. These ones have a hand drawn feel to them which is great for a playful layout.
I’m not one to shy away from thick layouts so I had to bust out the rubber pieces! I used my tiny attacher to sprinkle a few across the layout. With pocket pages it’s hard to just put one on.
I just LOVE this picture – we were making silly orange faces which was really just my sneaky way of getting him to not catch scurvy. I cut out the ‘follow your rainbow’ because it went with the goofy do your own thing feel of the picture. There are some great phrases on the cut apart sheet – the back is a super cute constellation pattern, it was probably the hardest one to cut into in the whole collection! And of course, puffy stickers – they are my favourite kind – the smooth matte ones.
Every single piece of this collection works well together. There is a great combination of basic and whimsy. I’m pretty sure I could have used it with just about any photos and been really happy with the results.
