Love You Wreath Layout by Lorilei Murphy

Monday, August 20, 2018

Hello! Lorilei here today sharing my latest layout using Paige’s cut files and Take Me Away collection! There is nothing I like better than a beautiful wreath on a scrapbook layout! I chose Paige's Leaf Wreath cut file and cut if from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 3. To make sure the wreath was highlighted I added paint in a soft peach and pretty pink color in a circle on a white background. Of course I needed little paint splatters!
I decided to use embellishments and a paper from Take Me Away. I fussy cut a nice bunch of flowers to place on the wreath and I finally got to use the cute chipboard carousel horse sticker! I tucked in the Love You stitched tag beside the photo for a nice cluster.

On the upper area of the wreath I added the Live Brave chipboard sticker and a heart to go with the carousel horse. I love the pretty airy feel that all the leaf sprigs on the wreath give to the layout. At my last count, Paige has 37 wreath cut files :)

Awesome Guy Layout for Paige's Pages 16

Sunday, August 19, 2018

Here is the first layout from Paige's Pages 16 at Big Picture Classes!
I've made lots of layouts using this same technique before, but never in this exact way. No need to reinvent the wheel every time, choose a technique and evolve it using large chevrons, smaller ones, different colors, different colors, etc. I placed the papers in rainbow order but I’ve also done a version with the colors in random order – both are awesome! Go in whatever direction you’re drawn to!
A couple tips: by distressing the edges of each triangle more texture is created and it helps separate the papers so you can appreciate how the layout is paper pieced together. And, don’t worry about making everything perfectly straight – ain’t nobody got time for that! I used a ruler initially to measure the horizontal lines for placing the triangles but then I placed them just a little crooked to give more interest to the layout. Embrace the imperfections, we’re only human afterall!
I only used about 6 products on this page: three patterned papers, a few bits from a pack of Journaling Spots, an image from pack of Rub-OnsChipboard Thickers for the title, and then other items you most likely have in your stash like a pencil, adhesive, and a roller stamp. That’s it!

Traveler's Notebook Spread by Donna Espiritu

Saturday, August 18, 2018

Hello, everyone! It's Donna here again sharing another project for the Paige Evans + Silhouette design team!
For today's post I used the Frames Background cut file in a TN spread. I backed the frame spaces with papers from the Oh My Heart collection. I chose papers that have lots of pink colors to coordinate with my photo.
I placed my photo and doily/white thread layer after adhering the backed cut file and splattering some spray mists. I used thin foam tape for a bit of dimension.
I used a minimal assortment of fussy cut images such as phones as well as puffy stickers, enamel dots, and sequins to embellish the spread. 
I hope my project inspired you in some way today. See you in my next post!

Today Layout by Flóra Farkas

Friday, August 17, 2018

Hi ladies, it's Flóra here today sharing my latest scrapbook page made with the lovely Pick-Me-Up collection. I chose a selfie I wanted to document and picked up the colors of the photo for my layout. I used different shades of pink and light mint for the background.
I cut out the cute Heart Group cut file from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I wanted to try out this cut file a long time ago because I love to back such background cut outs. I gathered all the pinkish papers from the Pick-Me-Up collection: Paper 12Paper 16Paper 17Paper 24 and some pages from the 6x6 Paper Pad
After the backing was done I added my photo with foam tape and behind it I placed an Ephemera Die Cut frame. Around I decorated with pinkish embellishments from the Chipboard StickersStickers, and  sheets and pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts. In the end I placed butterflies, enamel dots, and pretty buttons from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. I wanted to add more texture so I covered the middle section and splattered the page with white acrylic paint. 
I hope you will try the amazing Heart Group cut file along with the Pick-Me-Up collection! Thanks for stopping by today!

My Person Layout by Jana Maiwald-McCarthy

Thursday, August 16, 2018

Hi everyone, Jana Maiwald-McCarthy back again and I have new layout to share. I started this layout by cutting out the Hanging Flower Basket cut file on white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.

I knew which photo I wanted to use, so I started to look into the patterned Papers I have and ended up with the 6x6 Paper Pad from Oh My Heart and the 12x12 Paper Pad from Pick-Me-Up. Because of the bright yellow in the picture I decided to fill the flowers in the basket with a yellow paper from the 12x12 Paper Pad and all of the leaves were filled with smaller papers from the 6x6 paper pad. I chose a gradient paper and filled the bottom leaves with the darkest color, and then it gets brighter and brighter towards the top. I really love how the photo looks in the basket. I also filled the basket with a very light pink paper.

I added some pink Kaisercraft flowers to the basket and I really love how the pink works with the yellow and the green/blue tones here. To finish this page up I only added a few more things, one Ephemera Die Cut from Pick-Me-Up and two sets of alphabet Thickers - the Mini Thickers and Chipboard Thickers.
The last thing I’ve added here were some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine splatters. I really had fun and I really love how this layout turned out!

Toucan Layout by Julie Taylor

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Hi there - Julie Taylor here today! As soon as I saw this gorgeous Toucan cut file I knew he would look just great nestled in some tropical looking leaves to scrap a photo of our trip to Disney California back in 2017.
 I cut the toucan on black cardstock and backed it with papers from the Pick-Me-Up 6x6 Paper Pad, choosing all the lovely bright colors. I chose the Leaves cut file & Folk Art Flower cut file then cut them out on white cardstock before adding distress oxide inks to them to make them more tropical looking.
I then clustered them around the toucan, which I’d placed in the middle of the page, adding flowers fussy cut from Paper 02Rub-OnsPuffy Stickers, and gold leaves from the Chipboard Stickers. I matted my photo on papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and added it to the bottom right with another leaf cluster on top of that.
My title ‘Sunshine & Blue Skies’ came from the Stickers and a few gold ink splatters finished the page.
Thanks for stopping by!

She's Something Magical Layout by Missy Whidden

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Hey, friends, Missy Whidden here! I was so very excited when I saw Paige’s Unicorn Floatie cut file and couldn’t wait to use it because we just got our hands on a real unicorn floatie! You know you are a true scrapbooker when you can visualize your layout in your head as soon as you see something and it excites you more than anything…haha. I cut the unicorn on white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and the cool thing about this one is all the little pieces that go in the mane, tail and horn are included so you can easily cut them separately which is what I did. I pulled some light pink, light purple, and yellow papers to match my unicorn from the Oh My Heart and Take Me Away collections to cut all the tiny bits. I also sorted through all the collections to find matching pieces and I love how it turned out.
I used a white cardstock background and jazzed it up with some modeling paste through a stencil and some aqua & pink ink sprays. I created a cluster here with some Take Me Away Chipboard Stickers, Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts and an Oh My Heart Chipboard Sticker as well as a few heart stickers from the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook. I love the gold foil on some of these pieces so I had to add some gold Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. I used the Pick-Me-Up Mini Thickers to create my tone-on-tone title.

Isn’t this unicorn the cutest? I added a bit of shading to make it a bit more dimensional and realistic. I watered down metallic gold paint and used a brush and my fingers to add the shadows. I added adhesive foam on the back to pop it off the page.

I was thrilled to find that I still had some purple and yellow Take Me Away Ephemera Die Cuts in my stash, so I used them as layers. I also used some Take Me Away Chipboard Sticker pieces, some Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts, and lots of hearts from the 30-page #StickerBook.

This was so much fun to create! I love when the perfect photo collides with the perfect cut file…magic! I hope you are inspired to try this fun cut file on one of your layouts. Thanks for stopping by!

Envelope Mini Album with Tags and Bow by Lady Nany

Monday, August 13, 2018

Lady Nany here today! I love the afternoons shared with friends that I haven’t seen for a long time. Especially if it’s to be in the sun and enjoy the view of the sea in my favorite city while we drink "mate" which is the typical drink of Uruguay. Where I live (Piriapolis) there are natural places nearby, so after talks and laughter I returned home with the need to remember this time shared.
If you're like me, you'll understand my love for mini albums and especially this one that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it: the Envelope Mini Album with Tags cut file which I combined with the Pick-Me-Up collection to create this fun project. To begin, I ungrouped the parts to cut them individually in my Silhouette at the same time I was choosing the patterned papers.
The great advantage of this mini album is that it contains two tags per envelope, but if you want to add more elements, anything is possible. So once the envelopes were glued (flap on the base of the next envelope) I started playing with the photos and tags.
Die cuts leftover from other projects come in handy for decorating the tags. I used a butterfly from the Butterfly Background cut file and sewed it by hand through the center.
From Paper 13 I selected a sentiment to fussy cut and combined it with a thread bow and an enamel dot. On the other side I wrote journaling and decorated the photo with Rub-Ons.
This project can be as versatile as you want and that means you can create interactive tags! I added turned one into a book that opens to the right.
Sometimes I like to make simple combinations to highlight the image. That's why a cut out with phrases (as a title) and a photo say it all.
And the text can be hidden in an card that unfolds downwards.
Or behind a "mini envelope" from a paper pennant. Here I played with digital elements from Pack 2 of Pick-Me-Up to frame the photo.
Add simple details like a tab for a caption.
And then when opened there is more space to write and decorate!
On the small elements like hearts and bows I put glossy accent to give dimension and shine.
Finally, I decorated the tags with thread and that's it!
To close this mini album I made a small acetate folder and put a hole in the spine to hang a Heart Charm from Oh My Heart.
I hope this inspires you to create your own mini album using the Envelope Mini Album with Tags cut file. Thanks for reading! Bye bye!
