Pretty in Pastels with Amanda-jayne Baldwin

Hi, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Amanda here, and today I am sharing more February kit and add-on inspiration—such a beautiful kit with so many crafty possibilities! Here’s what I created with it:


Supplies | February 2021 Kit, February 2021 Cut Files, Happy Little Moments Chipboard Stickers, XOXO 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack, Good Times Tab Stamp 

Let’s take a more detailed look at my project:

The pretty pastel colors included in the February Kit were too good to ignore, so I stacked and layered five of the 3″ x 4″ tags together to form a beautiful pastel base for my sweet photo. To create more interest, I foam mounted this journaling tag stack onto the February 2021 Cut File rainbow tag to really draw attention to my photograph. Simple, and yet so effective!

To enhance the soft pastel look, I also trimmed one of the XOXO Paper Stack to give me four pastel 6″ x 1″ paper strips, which I machine stitched onto my white cardstock base. The variance in machine stitches and the addition of ribbon and pom pom trim really add texture and interest to my otherwise soft and delicate design. 

I embellished around my photo cluster with some of the chipboard clouds from the Happy Little Moments Chipboard Stickers—aren’t they the cutest?! I used these very same stickers to form my layout title, ‘We So Happy’, where the “we so” was taken from the “awesome’ sticker. 

To break up the very white background, I also stamped around my photo cluster with the tiny heart and star icons from the Good Times Tab Stamp. The stamped stars and hearts give a playful and magical vibe to the page, whilst adding color and interest as well. 

With such a crisp, clean and pretty color scheme, I felt that I need to add something more to balance my design. Cue the fabulous gray elements! That gray die cut ampersand from the February 2021 Kit is SO good! You’ll also spot the gray chipboard “together” sticker and those pretty patterned pops of gray pattern from the XOXO Paper Stack peeking through my distressed cardstock edges. 

Clean, simple and oh so beautiful memory keeping with the February 2021 Kit! I hope my scrapbook page has inspired you to get creating today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
