Snow Cute Layout by Valerie Bisson


Tuesday, January 18, 2022

 Hi everyone! Valerie Bisson here today with a new layout featuring Paige's cut files! For my layout I chose to use three different cut files: Branch Wreath, Snowflakes from the 25 Christmas Cut Files 2021, and Snow Cute for the title on my page, all paired and layered up with Paige’s Bungalow Lane collection.

I backed the snowflakes with vellum then for sparkle I added a sequin to the center of each and attached them with a stitched French knot. Since the cut files look so pretty I didn’t feel the need for lots of embellishment, just a few stickers in opposite corners with enamel dots and a “so much fun” Banner Sticker from Wonders with the title. To complete the page I hand stitched a subtle pink border.

Grateful for Your Friendship Layout by Paige Evans


Monday, January 17, 2022

 Last fall I taught a "lunch & learn" virtual class with Scrapbook & Cards Today!

My task was to create a 12x12 layout in an hour with a piece of pink cardstock and the 6x6 Paper Pad + Chipboard Stickers from Pick-Me-Up!
I do love a good challenge :)
I love including lots of patterned papers on my pages so I thought a fun way to use many from the paper pad would be to cut out wedges and place them in a fun sunburst design!
In class we used a template to trace, cut out, distress, then adhere the wedges onto the pink cardstock background.
A photo placed in the center draws the eye into the focal point and then we embellished tone-on-tone to create texture and little bits of interest.
Be sure to check the Scrapbook & Cards Today events page frequently for new classes! You might see my face pop up there soon :)

New Year Layout by Lisa Fonseca


Sunday, January 16, 2022

Hi everyone, Lisa Fonseca here today with a new design team layout! I just love Paige's wreath cut files! I have already used a lot of them and the layouts always turn out amazing! This one is a New Year Wreath cut file which includes cute images like a champagne bottle, disco ball, balloons, and more. I used Paige's Bungalow Lane collection and it was a fun challenge to find the right colors and embellishments for a New Years layout in a fall collection. I also put some color in the background using gelatos. As embellishments, I mainly used buttons, hearts, and stars. To finish and give more dimension, I put some colored thread in some places.

Merry & Bright Layout by Zsoka Marko


Saturday, January 15, 2022

Hey there lovelies, Zsoka Marko stopping by to share a new layout with you that I've created with the Bungalow Lane collection. I love Paige's Christmas cut files, so I made it my mission to use at least one! This is actually the only Christmas layout I made this year. It's sad, isn't it? I haven't had time to do a December Daily either, I forgot to take photos too, so even if I had time sometime, I won't be able to create one without photos! Maybe next year.

I cut the Merry & Bright cut file from white cardstock then backed the lights with lots of different patterned papers. The more colors and patterns the merrier! I then cut the title from a red(ish) patterned paper and glued the letters onto two layers of white cardstock as well to make them sturdy because I knew I was going to add foam tape to them later.

I created a stencil using Paige's Star Confetti cut file. I rearranged the stars to fit around the bottom and the sides of the Christmas lights. I only kept the smaller stars. I then added some Shimmerz texture paste to a white 12x12 cardstock. My favorite texture paste (Faber Castell Whipped Spackle) was completely dried in because I haven't used it in years and it's not available anymore. I found this shiny white paste that a friend of mine sent me a few months ago and I thought it'd be a great fit!

Once all was dry, I adhered the cut file to my background. I die cut the design once more and layered it over the other one to create dimension and texture. I only used glue in a few places so I have some movement on the page. Next, I added my letters on foam tape. I layered some tissue paper behind my photo and glued it in place. I wrote my journaling and added a few embellishments. Even though Bungalow Lane is a fall collection, I still found some stickers that worked fine with my Christmas photo. I stamped my date onto a label sticker and tucked it in behind the photo.

That's it! I hope you like how this page turned out! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

Floral Layout by Kylie Kingham


Thursday, January 13, 2022

Hi everyone! Kylie Kingham here with a new layout featuring Paige's cut files!

Here I have used Paige's Flowers cut file as a textural background for my layout. I have paired it with the beautiful Wonders collection, layering lots of Floral Die Cuts over the cut file. I like that it gives the effect of looking like lace peeking out behind. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Bungalow Lane Peek-A-Boo Mini Album by Amber Mitchell


Wednesday, January 12, 2022

Hello crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here on Paige’s blog today to share with you this fun peek-a-boo mini album I created using the Bungalow Lane collection.

I have had so much fun working with the Bungalow Lane collection! I’ve made several albums now and still feel as inspired to create with it as I did the very first time! The colors and patterns just speak to me!

The base of this mini album has a peek-a-boo center that gives a glimpse of the inside pages. To create the base, I took a sheet of paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and trimmed it down to 8.5 x 11 inches. I scored this sheet on the 11-inch side at 2, 3.5, 7.5, and 9 inches. I creased and folded on the score lines to create the template of my base.

To create the peek-a-boo center, I trimmed the outer panels on either end at an angle. Since I used a sheet of paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad, I needed to mat the back of it (or inside of the album) with patterned paper. I used pink, yellow, and blue patterns from the pad and adhered them down using a strong adhesive.

To create the pages, I took five sheets of paper from Bungalow Lane and trimmed them down to the following sizes: 2.75 x 2.5, 2.75 x 3.5, 2.75 x 4.5, 2.75 x 5.5, and 2.75 x 6.5 inches. I made my five pages from the following patterned papers from Bungalow LanePaper 10Paper 11Paper 14Paper 16, and Paper 21. To bind my pages to the album I chose binder rings. I used some yellow 1-inch rings from my stash to match the collection. I added them to the top of my album base and attached the pages from largest to smallest. And that’s the base of the album ready to go!

To embellish this mini album, I used a mix of embellishments from Bungalow Lane to create a lot of texture and dimension.

For the title, I used stickers from the Foam Phrase Stickers and the Chipboard Stickers. I added these to the top page of the album and layered them around Floral Die Cuts and Layered Stickers. To create extra pages and journaling spots, I used pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts and added them in-between the pages.

For some finishing touches, I used smaller elements from the 8-Page Sticker BookEmbossed Puffy Stickers, and Cardstock Stickers. This is a great way to fill up space or add extra detailing to pages. Throughout the album I added a few photo mats that I created using sheets from the 2x2 Paper Pads. I stacked these on the last page and added one to a tuck-spot on another page that I created using a flower from the Floral Die Cuts.

When it comes to a closure for this album, I opted to create a band that wraps around it. A Velcro strap or even a magnetic closure would work great as well. I decided to use a band so that I could further decorate the cover with flowers and leaves. To create this band, I took a sheet of paper that measured 3 x 12 inches. I scored this on the 12-inch side at 3, 4.5, 8.5, and 10 inches. I folded this strap around the album and adhered it together using adhesive tape. The final touch was a fun dangle made up of a paper tassels and charms, including one of the Heart Charms.

I’m absolutely in love with how this album turned out and I’m inspired to try it in different sizes and shapes! Thank you so much for stopping by my post today. I’ll see you next time with another fun project!
