Although the title “Pretty in Pink” might remind you of a certain ’80s movie, you don’t have to be Mollie Ringwald to use pink to brighten up your life. The Mix & Match Pink Paper Pack is a great way to create a beautiful pink scrapbook layout that works well with almost any occasion and will bring extra vibrancy and cheer to your albums. Looking for a place to start? Great, check out today’s layout!
To create this layout, you will need:
- Mix & Match Pink Paper Pack
- Mix & Match Pink Bouquet Embellishments
- White Script ABC/123 Stickers
- 12-inch Straight Trimmer
- Custom Cutting System with Circle Patterns
- Tape Runner with Repositionable Tape Runner Refill
- Foam Squares
- Black Dual-Tip Pen
Step 1: Use a piece of pink patterned paper as the base for this layout.
Step 2: Cut 15 circles using the Custom Cutting System. You will use the Medium Circle Pattern on the inside with the Green Blade and cut several circles with various patterns of paper.
Step 3: Using eight of the circles, adhere using Repositionable Adhesive to the upper part of the layout. You will want to start adhering at about two inches from the top edge of the layout. Continue layering the circles across the page as shown.
Step 4: Cut a piece of pink patterned paper to measure 12″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere to the upper part of the layout. You will adhere this strip over the upper half of the already adhered circles.
Step 5: Using the same concept as before, layer and adhere seven of the circles at the bottom of the page. Let them hang off the edge of the page and trim as needed.
Step 6: Cut a small strip of pink patterned paper to measure 12″ x 1/4″ and adhere with Repositionable Adhesive over the circles at the bottom of the layout.
Step 7: Cut a piece of pink patterned paper to measure 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and adhere to the layout as shown. This will be used for your journaling mat.
Step 8: For the photo mats, cut two pieces to measure 2-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and one piece to measure 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″. Photo sizes will be (2) 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and (1) 6″ x 4″. Adhere the photos to the mats and then layer and adhere them to the layout as shown.
Step 9: Adhere and layer several embellishments using Foam Squares on some for added dimension. Finish by adding gem and enamel stickers to the layout.
If you’re looking for an adorable scrapbook layout that uses pink in fun and exciting ways, give this layout a try! The way the stickers and embellishments go along with the already-brilliant pink paper adds layers of pink that will make any pictures pop with color. What do you plan on using this layout for?

I just love that movie and I just love this layout!! I will be seeing my son and his wife this week. This will be the perfect layout for a photo of us “two girls” together. :-)
My son was just engaged and I made an 8×8 album commemorating the event. In looking for paper in my stash, I realized I had just bought the Mix and Match pink paper. It was beautiful with the pink album. Even my ‘rough and tough’ son thought it was beautiful.
I think the directions are kind of paper wasteful. Instead of cutting 15 circles, adhering to the top and then placing a 12×12 strip across them, why not cut a lesser amount of circles in half and achieve the same effect?
