Hello lovelies, today I am sharing this fun scrapbook layout using Pinkfresh Studio Let Your Heart Decide collection plus a Silhouette cut file from Paige Evans!
Have a look at this fun layout!
My photo, and therefore the story of this layout is about Nick and the time back in February that we went to the vintage arcade in Winston Salem. I chose a selfie we took on that day together as the starting point for this layout.
I absolutely love this cut file from the Silhouette store designed by Paige Taylor Evans. I cut strips of paper to adhere behind the pattern of the cut file. As I laid out the strips I tried to switch up the colors to add variety and texture to this background, and I adore how it turned out! Once the background was complete then I was free to add my photos and embellish.
I loved all the textures and colors in the Let Your Heart Decide collection and made a point to include my favorites here! I did use the blue frame to make the photo pop off the background, and then I layered leaves and hearts and my journaling around the photo.
I have kept my journaling really simple for this layout. The who, what, where, and when are here at the bottom of the photo, and I added my why near the top of the photo. I kept this so simple for this layout and that is ok!
My title is placed vertically on the layout, which feels somewhat unexpected but I really love it. It does an excellent job to balance the photo on the layout and I loved using those alphabets!
Hi everyone, today I am continuing my series called 50 First Layouts, where I share a product collection and then create layouts based on those products! I am still working with Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful, and today’s layout is called Hey Good Looking! Check out my process here.
My photo I am working with is of Emberlynn, who is now 13 and she loves the camera! We went to downtown Winston in February to visit a vintage game arcade called Reboot, and I took this photo while she was hanging out in the seating area.
Can you tell I am loving this collection? The colors and the icons are awesome! This layout began with the happy little yellow bicycle (did you know Little Yellow Bicycle used to be a scrapbooking brand?!!) and a beautiful photo of Emberlynn.
I also chose a Silhouette Cut File from Paige Evans and I have backed these florals with other patterned papers from the collection. You can download this cut file here.
I cut two of the floral cut files and adhered one to the top of the page, and the second one to the bottom of the page. My photo is then adhered slightly to the right of those files. Now my embellishments can fill in around the photo.
I have also used the Dream On stamp set from Pinkfresh Studio, which I just absolutely adore! The hand drawn rectangles house stamped sentiments and I used the patterned circle to add more interest to my background paper.
I also added a bit of stitching to the layout around the floral elements. I can’t really do much hand stitching because it makes my hands hurt, but I do love to add texture with the machine! I just went randomly around the floral cut files and I also underlined the stamped words at the bottom of the page.
Such a fun and easy layout to create! Thank you for joining me today!

I am also sharing a layout I created using the Starburst cut file. I had some photos of Emberlynn from 2016, when she got her very first pair of glasses! I cut the Starburst file from a solid grey card stock from Felicity Jane and backed it with white card stock from Bazzill. I am also using journal cards from the LD Out With The Old collection and embellishments from the Shimelle Glitter Girl collection!

Hi everyone, it is Freebie Friday here today and that means a new cut file, called You Are My Star! This is a print and cut file, so if you are able to print 12×12 you can print this out and then have your cutting machine cut it out for you. Click on the image below to download the product.
Here is the layout I created with this file. I was inspired by a photo of Alan and myself as we were getting ready to drive to a mini vacation!
My plan for this cut file was to have just parts of the stars fold over so the background paper could peek through. I chose this coral color, which contrasts beautifully against the navy Dear Lizzy specialty paper. All the products used in this layout are from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection, with the exception of the wood veneer stars, which are Studio Calico.
I layered my photo onto other patterned papers from the collection and then added little bits and bobs around the photo as well. The hot air balloons in particular carried a particular feeling I wanted this layout to convey: we were going away for a few days without the kids and so it really did feel like we were wild and free!
I used a chipboard title Wild & Free, which is layered onto the black and white florals that I hand cut from the patterned papers.
Such a fun little cut file! You can watch my process video for the layout here:
I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout come together! Now go download the file and make something! Be sure to use #larkindesigntm if you share online, so I can see!
Hi everyone, it’s Friday and I hope you are getting ready for a great crafty weekend! To help inspire you, I am offering a free Silhouette cut file on the first Friday of every month. Be sure to check out the other file, if you missed it! Here is today’s cut file. If you Click on the image it will take you to the product page, where you can download the file.
This layout is based on a really special conversation that my husband Alan and I were having, and these are words he used to explain why he rubs my feet every night! This is the layout I was inspired to create.
I wanted to try using the Felicity Jane solid card stock papers that come in each month’s kit, and let me tell you they cut like butter in the Silhouette! I am loving this mustard and indigo color combination, so I used the indigo paper to show through behind the cut file.
I kept the embellishments to a very minimum here, just the adorable hexagonal confetti pieces, some florals to repeat the background paper, and a few stamped sentiments.
For my journaling I used one of the tags in the Heidi kit and tucked it behind the photo. I think this is a great way to include your journaling when your title is already really bold and graphic on the page.
One more look at this gorgeous, meaningful layout!
