Hearts Layout by Stefanie Ried

Tuesday, January 23, 2018

Stefanie Ried has a new jaw-dropping layout to share with you today! Of course it's amazing and lovely and divine! 
I am very excited - my first layout with the enchanting new collection Pick-Me-Up! It is sooo beautiful and I would have liked to use all papers and stickers on my page! I started with a layout full of hearts. The new cut files from Paige have inspired me to do that. And Valentine's Da is not so far away either!
I used the Hearts Heart cut file for the many hearts. First, I removed the grouping and then selected individual hearts in different shapes. Then came the papers. I wanted to use many different colors and patterns.
I sewed the hearts individually using my sewing machine then bent up the edges to make a nice three dimensional effect. For the title I added a Chipboard Sticker.
Since I liked the many hearts and I had so much fun creating the layout, I will definitely make a mini with it. Many thanks for stopping by and see you next time :)

Love-Themed Cards by Zsoka Marko

Monday, January 22, 2018

Gasp! Swoon! Love these cards by Design Team member Zsoka Marko!

Hi there friends! Today I'm back with a couple of cards I've made for Paige Evans + Silhouette!
Since it's Valentine's Day soon, I thought I'd make something love-themed. Not specifically for Valentine's Day, but any occasion really where love is involved! I went with the beautiful Oh My Heart collection because I haven't used it in awhile! For the first card I've used the Hearts Wreath cut file. I scaled it down to fit on an A2 card and cut it twice in slightly different sizes from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. One of them I backed with different patterned papers, the other one I just kept all white without any backing.
I made an A2 top folding card base from white cardstock and glued the B-side of Paper 22 on it. Then I adhered the larger wreath to a piece of the mint part of Paper 17 and fussy cut around it to have a solid panel that I then popped up with foam adhesive. I glued the smaller wreath on top of this too.
I picked out a sentiment from the Ephemera Die Cuts and adhered it to my wreath panel with foam adhesive. I had a couple of fussy cut flowers from Paper 06 left from a previous project - I tucked these behind the die cut and glued them down. To finish off my card I added a rose gold ampersand Chipboard Sticker.
I also made a coordinating envelope from patterned paper - I used the envelope from the Envelope Gift Mini Album cut file for this, I just sized it to a little larger than my A2 card and die cut it from Paper 02

For my second card I chose the Pie Chart Heart cut file. I backed the openings with several different pink patterned papers then I cut off the right side of the heart. Again, I made an A2 top folding card base and adhered the same size of patterned paper panel on it. I love Paper 17 and I haven't used it on any layout yet if you can believe it!
I used some foam adhesive to adhere the heart to my card base then I tucked some Ephemera Die Cut flowers as well as some fussy cut flowers from Paper 06 under the heart. I found the Hey Sugar heart donut piece in the Ephemera Die Cuts and I thought it would be perfect for a sentiment.
I wanted to add a little something to finish off my card and decided that the super adorable heart Charms would do the trick! I've been obsessed with eyelets again lately, so I added one to the die cut and hung the little charms from that hole. 
I created a coordinating envelope using the above mentioned cut file and Paper 24. This time I had to scale up quite a bit because the Hey Sugar piece hangs off the card base. That's it for today, I hope I could inspire you in some little way!

I love the dimension and all the details Zsoka included on her pair of cards - perfect to give to your honey!

Frames Layout by Flóra Farkas

Sunday, January 21, 2018

See! Pick-Me-Up Paper 19 is PERFECT for filling up with little embellishments! Here is a take on the same idea as my layout from yesterday by Flóra Farkas:
Hi ladies! This is such a special day because I can share with you my first layout created with the brand new Pick-Me-Up collection by Paige! This collection is full of happy colors, lovely patterns, beautiful flowers, and much more. It’s so hard to decide what to grab first. I had many ideas but in the end I chose the soft Paper 19 which futures lots of colorful frames.
After I placed my photo on the right, I started to embellish the frames one by one. I used the tone-on-tone technique which means I placed pinkish elements in the pink frames, yellow elements in yellow frames, and so on. I don’t have all the gorgeous products from the collection yet but still enough to create amazing things! I used Ephemera Die CutsChipboard ThickersChipboard StickersMini ThickersStickers, and Journaling Spots.

I really love this collection because it can be spring-y and summer-y at the same time. Depending on the elements you pick, you can make different seasonal projects. This time I went for spring and used lovely flowers, bows, and butterflies, along with many sentiments.

I must highlight the gold foil throughout the collection! I chose the "love" Chipboard Sticker for my title which is also gold. That handwritten style is just simply stunning. Love it!

I can’t wait to see what you create with the new Pick-Me-Up collection! Thanks for stopping by!

Rolled Flower Home Decor by Bea Valint

Saturday, January 20, 2018

What is it about rolled paper flowers that is so appealing?! I don't even know, but they are, and Bea Valint has the most beautiful piece of home decor to share with you today that she made using my Rolled Flower cut files! I currently have five flowers: Rolled Flower 1, Rolled Flower 2, Rolled Flower 3, Rolled Flower 4, and Rolled Flower 5!
Hi friends! Since it has been snowy here in Hungary lately, I thought I would make a floral home decoration to bring a little spring into our home. Paige has 5 rolled flower cut files in the Silhouette store and I decided to make some flowers from every type.
For creating the flowers I used mostly Turn the Page and Oh My Heart patterned papers. I just love the bright and pretty look of them.
When I was finished rolling the flowers, I cut a big heart shape from cardboard and adhered the flowers in place using a hot glue gun.
 I placed my flower-heart on a wooden frame, added a photo of me and my sweet daughter, and hung it on my wall to bring a smile to my face whenever I see it.
These flowers were easy to make with the help of my Silhouette Cameo 3! Once you get going it's hard to stop because they are so fun to create and are so beautiful when grouped together!

Think of all the different shapes you could make with the rolled flowers - an ampersand, a monogram, and outlined heart... The possibilities are endless and sure to bring beautiful results!

Cupcake Love Layout by Audrey Yeager

Friday, January 19, 2018

A repeated cut file makes a big statement on a page, especially when backed with patterned paper and "sprinkled" with embellishments! Check out design team member Audrey Yeager's cute birthday-themed page!: 
"I backed the 'frosting' areas of the Cupcakes cut file with more solid tones of papers so that I could decorate the tops with sequins and other goodies, and then backed the bottoms with fun patterns to look like cupcake liners!"

I LOVE how Audrey used sequins and puffy stickers as sprinkles on the cupcakes! Too adorable!

Cute Jane Layout

Thursday, January 18, 2018

Thank you so much for your loving response to Pick-Me-Up!! I have a new layout to share with you today made with Paper 19 and lots of the cute embellies from Pick-Me-Up!

A short'n'sweet process video since this layout came together FAST!:

I started by cutting out the insides of 6 frames and backing them with photos of Jane using dimensional adhesive to give them some shadows.
The next part was easy peasy - simply fill in the rest of the frames with coordinating embellishments! I used Die Cuts, Washi Tape, Stickers, Rub-Ons, Puffy Stickers, Sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack, Chipboard Stickers, Ephemera Die Cuts, both kinds of Thickers, and Journaling Spots - all from Pick-Me-Up! As long as it fits in the frame, it'll turn out awesome! You can't go wrong which is another thing I love about layouts like this.
Across the top of the pennant sticker I added some machine stitching for texture and detail.
In one of the frames I added a journaling card which I wrote my journaling on.
I hope you are inspired to try making your own version of this layout using my Pick-Me-Up collection! It's a great way to fit lots of photos on a page and play with new product! Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

1st Pick-Me-Up Page by Missy Whidden

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Missy Whidden's first layout made with Pick-Me-Up gives me all the heart-eyes!!
Hey friends! Missy here again, and I’m beyond excited to be sharing my first layout using Paige’s NEW collection, Pick-Me-Up! It’s full of beautiful, rich colors, amazing patterns, and lots of fun embellishments. I dove right in and started sorting through all the pretty papers. I used one of Paige’s new cut files for this, the Heart Wreath cut file available in the Silhouette Store and die cut it from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I used a lot of the new patterned papers to back each of the hearts. I decided to go big with my photo and enlarged this sweet image of my grandma and my daughter. I used Pick-Me-Up Paper 16 as my background and added some mixed media to it. I smudged some white gesso in a big circle with my fingers to fade out some of the patterned paper behind the cut file. Next, I used a variety of pink ink sprays along with some teal and gold to add a bit more color.
Once the background was dry, I machine stitched a bunch of messy circles using white thread. I wanted to add more texture behind the cut file and this was a subtle way to do it without making everything look busier. I popped up the entire cut file and photo using some foam adhesive. I also added in several teeny tiny hearts from the Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Stickers. They are so cute!

I wanted to go minimal on the embellishments and title since the hearts and photo are the main design elements. I layered in a Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Sticker and added a phrase that I cut from Paper 01.  I also added in a small pink “Always” sticker from the Sticker Sheet.

Over on the left, I added in two more Chipboard Stickers. I love the gold foiling! I tucked in some yellow and aqua thread under the cut file for added color and texture. I really love how the adhesive foam creates such awesome dimension.

I hope this inspires you to pick up this beautiful collection and make something awesome with it! You won’t be disappointed… it’s very beautiful! I had a blast making it and I know you’ll love it as well. Thanks for stopping by!
