Hey y'all! Laura Alberts back again with another boy layout featuring the Legendary collection. I absolutely loved this Brave Heart mixed media style patterned paper, but didn't want it to over power my photos. So, by layering white cardstock between the mixed media paper and the gray dot paper, the two work better together! I love the little photo corners I cut out of some scraps to give the center area a bit of dimension.
The title is from the clear sticker sheet, thought it has the look of handwriting or stamping! A small cluster of stars in several places on the layout were the minimal embellishing I added to this page. Most of the stars are fussy cut from the All Star patterned paper, but some are punched from scraps. Small dots of gold Nuvo Drops and gold ink splatter, along with hand-drawn stars add tiny details to each cluster.
I puzzled these photos together with the intention of creating the look of a modified grid, balanced, but yet off-kilter. I think this design works beautifully with these photos because it illustrates the nature of the castle featured there. My favorite part of this layout is the clear sticker "Epic" on my photo with word phrases underneath. That small detail is just awesome!
I hope this layout inspires you to have some fun with the bold colors and patterns in the Legendary collection! To see how the “Super Awesome Adventure” layout came together, check out the process video below!

Hey y'all! Laura Alberts back again with a bold and beautiful boy layout featuring the stickers in the Legendary collection. On the right side of the layout, I've created a trail of clear arrow stickers to add a border along that side and anchor the layered block to the side of the page. Then, alongside the right side of the bottom photo, I added a column of phrase stickers from the cardstock sticker sheet. The enamel dots give a little pop of dimension next to each phrase.
To the left of the photos, I layered clear star stickers around the die cuts to give a "stamped" effect. Love how clear stickers look on a white background! Then, I layered punched scraps and fussy cut stars all around the large die cut star (which I backed like a cut file with patterned paper). Enamel dots, Nuvo Drops, and ink splatter added the perfect detail finishers to this large star explosion!
The title may be my favorite part of this layout, it's fussy cut from the Epic Tales cut apart and fit perfectly in that spot at the bottom! I popped each letter up on foam to give it a bit of dimension and put them on a jaunty angle for a bit of fun. Love the way the colors of the letters tie the layout together. I added my journaling around the perimeter of the layout for an extra border.
I hope this layout inspires you to have some fun with the bold colors and patterns in the Legendary collection! To see how the “Epic” layout came together, check out the process video below!

Hey y'all! Laura back again with a large photo layout. This 5x7 inch photo of my darling child and her new nickname are an important story to share in her album and I think the Sunkissed collection was perfect to highlight it! I added a border to a piece of white cardstock and then weaved three strips of patterned paper vertically and horizontally to make a corner to place my photo.
I outlined each of the strips to give them a little extra pop and added a title along the right side of the photo with clear stickers to accent each of my clusters as well. A banner on the top left and top right of the layout gives it a fun feel. I even tucked a clear mixed media style sticker behind the journaling strips I cut from a journaling card.
This cluster of florals were fussy cut from the patterned paper and I layered it on top of a die cut rainbow with a word phrase sticker tucked alongside and two more on top! Little puffy hearts are spread all over the layout for my scattering bits! Nuvo drops and gold ink splatter finish off the white spaces!
I hope this layout inspires you to have some fun with the bold colors and patterns in the Sunkissed collection! To see how the "Call Me Charlie" layout came together, check out the process video below!

Welcome back to the Cherry Blog! Today, we are gathering memories from childhood for this mini-album featuring photos from my parents’ first home and the house that I grew up in. This place has so many wonderful moments captured in its hallways. Using the Pinkfresh Studio Some Days collection was perfect for this project because it has tons of home-themed phrases and icons.

Hey y'all! Laura back again with a bright and happy layout featuring the new Sunkissed collection! The rainbow strip on the Good Vibrations patterned paper just called to me for these photos! By framing both sides with this brilliant mix of colors, I could keep the color scheme of the layout open ended and fun! I added a strip of Sunny Days to highlight the green tone in my daughter's shirt.
I love to fussy cut, so the floral perfection of the Growing Wild paper just called to me! These clusters are stunning and make creating a long floral border super easy! I also added a small cluster from the A5 paper pad version at the beginning and end of the title. The wood buttons are so cute, I had to add one in the center of my photos for a different texture on the page.
I used clear stickers behind a few of the floral clusters and as accents around the title. These glitter foam words are amazing! Love pre-made titles and this one was perfect for my sassy girl's car trip through the sunny backyard. To fill in some of the white space, I added some gold ink splatter and Nuvo drops.
I also created a sketch based on this layout to show how all of the layers fit together and make it easier for your to recreate the design if you’d like to!
I hope this layout inspires you to have some fun with the bold colors and patterns in the Sunkissed collection! To see how the "Fun in the Sun" layout came together, check out the process video below!

We are diving into the stunning Echo Park Magical Birthday collection to scrap these three photos from my 2nd birthday. I love the bright, happy colors in this collection and knew I could cut lots of embellishments from this one! I used a three rows design (modified grid) to celebrate these photos.
I fussy cut these balloons and these chalkboard icons from the pattern papers and layered them together next to the first photo. I added stars and streamer stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet. A little bit of gold Nuvo drops and splatters adds a bit of fun to this cluster!
On the second row, I used tags and a birthday cake for the cluster, with a “birthday” sticker overlapped. I also added two borders around the entire layout, one with pink polka dots (to match the photo mats) and the beautiful multi-colored plaid.
On the bottom row, I added a couple of clusters filled with these fussy cut decorations, mixing in streamers stickers, and Nuvo drops. I added a few flag stickers behind the chalkboard fussy cut icon, and then layered a “surprise” sticker over the photo.
I hope this project inspired you to try out this three rows design! To see this layout come together, please check out the video below!
