Las Cinco Layout by Nidia Rubio

Saturday, August 17, 2019

Hi, friends! It's Nidia Rubio from Scrapamundi, and I'm here to show you another layout with pieces from the Horizon collection. In this post I introduce you to four good friends. The day of the photograph was a very special day because the daughter of one of them was baptized.
For this layout I used Paper 24 as the background because I wanted to create contrast to the gesso stripes. I made the gesso stripes in three steps. First of all I covered the central zone of the layout with a light layer of gesso. When it was dried, I used the Sunburst Rays Background cut file with modeling paste. And finally, when it was dried, I used the Star Confetti cut file with modeling paste again to create the shooting stars shower effect.

For making the frame of the photograph I used the Frame cut file and I cut pieces of Paper 12 to add color to the composition. I really liked the layout in this moment but I realized that it was missing a few details and my husband told me that I maybe could try to add some colors covering the shooting stars shower scene. He always helps me when I have doubts in my scrapbooking projects :)

Then I painted the background with watercolors and I saw he was right. These colors are the perfect touch to create the effect that I was looking for. I also added Ephemera Die Cuts. To finish I used white Mini Thickers from Pick-Me-Up painted with different inks to compose the title of the layout and I wrote my journaling.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed creating this layout :) Thanks for stopping by!

Grateful Layout by Stefanie Ried

Friday, August 16, 2019

Hello and welcome to a new layout from me, Stefanie Ried, my first project with the new collection Truly Grateful. The colors are sooo beautiful!! First I looked through all the papers. Usually the first ideas come when I look at them. Often I write small notes and stick them to the papers. Then it says what I want to do with it. Because I often forget my ideas, haha :)
The paper with the trees (Paper 07) is an absolute highlight. Isn't it beautiful? I love the colorful trees. And it's a different motif. And so I chose it for my first layout.

First, I cut out the trees. So that the trees create more dimension on the layout, I have equal colors folded and sewn in the middle. The result is beautiful folded trees that make the layout more interesting.

In between I glued some trees with 3D glue dots. The branches are sewn and decorated with sequins from the Mixed EmbellishmentsStickersPuffy Stickers, and cut out motifs. It's like a colorful, living forest. In between I have inserted the photo in the shape of a tree. The forest was supposed to be the central focus, I kept the rest of the layout neutral.

I hope you like my layout. See you next time!

Love Dashboard by Mik Godinho

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Hi friends! It’s Mik here from Papermiks here today with a new blog entry. Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary and, like a planner girl, I’m gonna make a memory planner to celebrate this special date. I’ve chosen the beautiful Whimsical collection and two of Paige’s cut files: Love and Heart Confetti Background.
I started by die cutting the Heart Confetti Background from white cardstock and vellum with a Silhouette Cameo 3 on a 8 1/4 x 6 1/8 size to make the background. Then I cut the Love. To make my background, I layered Paper 08 with the background cut file to give it some romantic color in the back. I backed the Love letters with Whimsical patterned papers.

I attached the Love cut file using 3D foam squares. I believe that 90% of my projects use 3D adhesive - I really love the dimension and shadows it creates. In order to add more romance to my planner dashboard, I decorated the Love cut file with Floral Die CutsEphemera Die Cuts, and I wrote “You” with Foam Mini Thickers. As you can see, we don’t need too much to make a beautiful planner dashboard. With a Silhouette Cameo 3, two cut files from Paige Evans, and some items from Whimsical collection, I made such a romantic and lovely insert to my A5 wedding memory planner.

I hope you got some inspiration from this idea and enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!

Truly Grateful MemoryDex Cards

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

I've created the next set of cards for my Pink Paislee MemoryDex using Truly Grateful!
For this first card I used a layered heart cut file and cut out 9 concentric hearts from a rainbow of Truly Grateful patterned papers. I sewed around the edges with white thread for texture and contrast and then attached it onto a MemoryDex card base. To embellish I added the Truly Grateful logo and then a smattering of Floral Die CutsEpoxy Stickers, and a Wooden Button.
When I got Truly Grateful in the mail back in June, one of the first things I did was have my Silhouette Cameo 3 cut out all of the leaves from Paper 10 using the PixScan feature (I have a tutorial within this process video). All of the leaves have been sitting in a little baggie just waiting for the perfect project. Enter MemoryDex card #2! I was able to add almost every single leaf in a wreath design and it makes my heart so happy seeing all of the colors together. I embellished with a "Love" wood veneer piece from the Mixed Embellishments glued in the center, a sprinkling of Puffy Stickers placed tone-on-tone, and a "blessed" Ephemera Die Cut.
For the third MemoryDex card I die cut an envelope and stuffed it full of Journaling Spots. In the Mixed Embellishments is a round wood veneer piece with holes which I cross stitched through to complete the heart.
On the Journaling Spots I wrote about Truly Grateful, when it released, photos of the collection, and a couple other things I want to remember like finding a few of my products in Target - a total surprise and surreal moment!
Time to add these cards to My Pink Paislee MemoryDex!
I need to take a new photo which includes these three new cards, but here is what all the previous cards look like and you can see them all up close and personal in this blog post.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to pick up Truly Grateful and create your very own MemoryDex!

Six Layout by Maija Männistö

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Hi everyone, Maija Männistö here to share a layout with the Horizon collection. This page celebrates my sweet son’s sixth birthday. So what a better fit for this layout than one of Paige’s newest cut files, ‘SIX’.
First I added texture on the background with Paige’s Star Confetti stencil and white modeling paste. I have been hoarding Paper 03 for awhile and I am so happy I did! The pattern works perfectly with this cut file! For embellishing of the layout I wanted to add something fitting for my son and as a DIY embellishment lover I decided to use Paige’s cut files! The various gorgeous geometric animals and shapes are just perfect for this. And I love that they are also on the more boyish side with the star, dinosaur, fox, bear, feather, llama, and a stained glass heart.

I resized the shapes, cut them from white cardstock, and backed them with Paper 03. This is why I love this paper so much - you can get so much out of it with the different colors! To bring some dimension I adhered a few of the pieces with foam tape. For final touches I added Stickers and Chipboard Stickers. And can’t forget little paper flags that have become my signature piece in every project!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Binder Mail by Lilly Sanchez

Monday, August 12, 2019

Hey guys, it's Lilly Sanchez, welcome back to the blog. I am so excited to share my fun project with you guys today!
Have you seen the recent rave with binder mail? This is the new popular way of sending off tons of fun embellishments to your pen pals as happy mail. So I decided to create one using a bunch of Paige’s collections and oh my gosh, I think I am in love. Let me tell you guys what I used to create all this magic with a $1 binder. Let’s start with the cover which I am so obsessed with by the way. I used Pick-Me-Up Paper 15as the base and to add a little extra I hand shredded Paper 16Paper 17, and Paper 09, making one a shaker for added effect. After a little stitching here and there and a few ephemera die cuts, we have an amazing cover. As for the spine I spelled out CREATIVE and stitched through some Thickers.

As we open the book, it has pockets made out of Paper 09 and lots of other layered papers. Most of my embellishments were made using Pick-Me-Up and Oh My Heart.

So there you guys have it - a super fun way to share goodies with your pals all tucked in a binder! Thank you for stopping by and I'll catch you guys on my next post. Happy crafting!

Riverfront Spokane Layout

Sunday, August 11, 2019

I created a new layout to share with you today using the Missy Whidden Color Kitz: The August Edition and an exclusive hibiscus cut file I designed to go along with it!
Riverfront Spokane by Paige Evans
- 2oz bottle of Plum Pudding Spritz
- jar of Pining For You Creameez
- jar of Beets Me Inklingz
- jar of an exclusive new color: Rita on the Rock Shimmerz
- package of three exclusive Dotz: "Paradise Party"
- exclusive hibiscus cut file created by me!
I started by cutting the cut file from textured white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3 and then placed it onto another textured white cardstock background. Then I applied white gesso across the entire thing and let it dry.
 Once dry, I added all the Shimmerz from the August kit, plus one more color - Pink Stilettos Coloringz. I sprayed the background with water to let the colors blend and move and do their thing then set it aside to dry.
 I tried peeling the hibiscus off the mat but it was totally ripping and peeling off the colors. Oopsies! Time to think of a plan B! I die cut the hibiscus again and simply glued it on top, slightly off-set. I like the contrast this provides and you can see the textures peeking from behind.
 I added a photo of Jane tucked into the top and placed two of the three August kit Dotz by the photo. To finish I used the mini foam Thickers from my Whimsical collection to create the title and wrote journaling with a purple pen below.
 This layout only took about an hour to make! That's so fast for me and I LOVE it when that happens.
I hope you are inspired to check out the Missy Whidden Color Kitz: The August Edition along with the hibiscus cut file I designed exclusively for this kit! Thanks for stopping by!

You Have Cat to be Kitten Me Right Meow! Layout by Kelly Daye

Saturday, August 10, 2019

Hello friends, it’s Kelly Daye here today with a new layout. I’ve designed it with one of my favorite Pink Paislee collection’s by Paige - the oh-so-pretty Turn the Page collection. The soft pastels and florals are totally irresistible. It was perfect for a layout about my kitty’s favorite pastime: looking out at the garden to watch the birdies.
I designed my layout with Paige’s cute kitten cut file - You Have Cat To Be Kitten Me Right Meow! Bonus, when you join Paige’s Happy Scrappy Place Facebook Group you can download it for free! I cut it from white cardstock and paper-backed the words with spare bits of Turn the Page that I’ve saved from other projects. I save every little piece, by color, in small envelopes just for projects like this. The round icon in the centre of the layout was fussy cut from Paper 10. One of the pretty Heart Charms from the Oh My Heart collection along with some gold thread was added to suggest a tag on a collar.
Once the words in the kitten cut file were backed, I offset the cut file in Silhouette Studio to get a background slightly bigger and also cut it from white cardstock. I think this added some nice but subtle dimension. This kitty is looking out a window, which is actually Paige’s Geometric Star Background cut file, cut from Paper 18. I made the shakers in the "window panes" using thin strips of 3D foam tape and filled them with a colorful, custom mix of sequins that complemented the floral background Paper 02.

Since it’s a faux window to the garden, I wanted to surround it with flowers. Many mini-buds later, mission accomplished! I made them in yellow, mint, aqua, pink, white, and coral and couldn’t be more smitten. They also add a ton of texture! All the pretty little buds were made using Paige’s Rolled Flower cut files and more bits from Turn the Page. To create an interesting boarder, I applied 1/4” double-sided tape around the yellow background Paper 15 and sprinkled it with yellow glitter. To finish it all off, Stickles and White Nuvo Crystal Drops where randomly dotted all around the wreath. There’s always room for a little more sparkle!

Thanks so much for coming by, I’m thrilled that you did!

Happy Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, August 9, 2019

Hey there crafty friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by today with a new layout I've made for the Paige Evans Design Team. Still on my quest of finding new color combos in the awesome Horizon collection, I've come up with this yellow-blue-green combo!
I really wanted to use the frames from Paper 18 because they are absolutely gorgeous - I love the colors, the watercolor effect, the super fun definitions! Plus the colors I chose had the perfect theme for my photo! So I definitely wanted those to be visible. Keeping that in mind I started playing with arrangements - I'm not a fan of lineal things so a plain old grid just didn't cut it. I prefer a scattered, random but still organized look - if that makes ANY sense at all lol!

Once I kind of knew what I wanted, I started working on my background. Lately I've been making lots of cards using paper strips and I absolutely love them. I used to draw inspiration from my layouts to create cards, now it's the other way around! I love the color of the dark green paper but I found it too dark for a full background, so I just used it for the middle section of my page and I cut strips from other papers for both sides.

Then I glued down the frames and my photo in the middle and started embellishing. I pulled everything travel-related I could find (Chipboard StickersStickersTagsShaped Paper ClipsEphemera Die CutsCharms) but it wasn't enough, so I just went with colors. As in, I totally used embellies that make no sense (flowers and leaves?!) thematically, but I am not bothered by it. As long as the colors match, I'm OK. I also added some buttons from my stash. To finish off my page, I added a chipboard title and my journaling. That's it!

I hope you are inspired to try different color combos - big collections like Paige's are perfect for coming up with various, maybe a bit unusual combos. Don't be afraid to give it a try, what's the worst that can happen?! Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely day!

Horizon Coptic Book & Kits

Thursday, August 8, 2019

Just updated my Horizon coptic book by decorating the cover and created a few more Horizon Coptic Book kits! And they're 10% off until Saturday :)
Horizon Coptic Book by Paige Evans
Here is everything included in the Horizon Coptic Book Kit & Online Class:

- one pair of 4x6" wooden covers with the holes already drilled and ready to be painted
- 12 double-sided patterned papers trimmed to size
- 60 pieces of copy paper trimmed to size
- piercing & drilling template
- skein of coordinating thread (color may vary from photo)
- curved needle
- "piercing" pushpin
- 12 shaped paper clips
- 6 metal charms
- 3 jewels
- 2 pearls
You can also use almost anything for the covers - if you can put holes through the cover, you can use it for the cover! I mostly use wood but I've also used plexiglass, chipboard, chipboard covered with patterned paper and/or pretty fabric, license plates(!), CDs, cassettes, and tiles. Let your imagination go wild and get creative! The book lays flat when opened so it's really easy to write, "art" and journal in. I often get asked if I put anything inside these handmade books and truth be told I have only ever completely filled one: my December Daily 2017. It's probably my favorite handmade book / mini album ever. I've also used them to journal in and used one as a daily gratitude book. They also make great baby sign-in books, wedding sign-in books, bride-to-be books, and more. They're the perfect gifts!
I only have 7 left of these Horizon Coptic Bookbinding Kits left so you can learn how to make these unique books too! :)
