Product Focus | Love these cRaZy Faces by Michelle Stokes

2020.07.15 HKC LOVE THESE CRAZY FACES staged


Hey Friends It’s Michelle here today with a new layout share that I had so much fun creating. I was given a task to showcase 2 products for this creation, and as I had just recently received my June 2020 kits it was a really hard choice! I ended up with the Pinkfresh Studio ‘Best place to be’ paper and the sweet EXCLUSIVE HKC – Homemade Memories Vellum Die Cuts to use as my feature items on the layout.




I went a little fussy cutting crazy and chopped up the ‘Best place to be’ paper (June 2020 Main Kit) as I had a certain idea in mind. I was inspired by the layout I shared in the HKC Facebook Group last week for our Weekly Challenge that featured lots of circular elements, just like this one does, but on a much larger scale. It’s nice to step out of my comfort zone/ go to photo shapes.




I cropped the photos into a circle shape then printed them out in different sizes. I used the reverse pattern of the Kind Hearts paper to back the smaller 2 photos.




I grouped each photo with a cluster of circles cut from the ‘Best place to be’ paper along with a vellum heart. Each element is adhered with different forms of adhesive for different levels of dimension.




I’ve stitched through random circles and stapled the hearts for added texture. Such a photogenic family we are HAHA We had a lot of fun making faces in that photo booth




I added a couple of random enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio into the many circle clusters around the page




There’s also a couple of sweet flower puffy stickers from the Pinkfresh sticker pack that can be found in the June 2020 Embellishment Kit




I created a title using the Puffy Blue Alpha Stickers from the Main Kit, machine stitched to keep them in place for years to come, and then splattered the entire layout with gold ink from my stash to finish it all off.


Well friends thank you so much for stopping by. It’s been fun sharing this with you all.

Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
Michelle xx
