Kindergarten Layout & Process Video

Thursday, June 21, 2018

I've got a new layout to share today with Jane's official Kindergarten photo, my Scalloped Circles Background cut file, and my Pick-Me-Up collection with Pink Paislee!
Kindergarten by Paige Evans
Here is a process video so you can see how this layout came together:

I started by having my Silhouette Cameo 3 die cut the Scalloped Circles Background from textured white cardstock. Then I trimmed Paper 10 into rows and punched 1" circles from each patterned square. I cut all of the circles in half to make semi-circles and used those to back the scallops of the cut file. I placed adhesive only along the flat edge which let the scallops bend up to create dimension & shadows.
I used my Brother sewing machine and white thread to stitch around the inner edge of each circle for texture, to make sure the paper semi circles stay in place permanently, and to add that "home spun" look.
The cut file is designed to be concentric, but I decided to layer them all at the left side, using the B-side of Paper 16 for my background. I used foam squares to attach the scalloped circles in place, again to create depth and dimension.
I added the photo of Jane on the left side and embellished minimally with Chipboard Stickers and Puffy Stickers to let the background shine. Around the inner edge of the circles I created the title using white Mini Foam Thickers, the year with mini number Stickers, and wrote journaling with a .03 black precision pen.
That's it! I hope Jane looks back at this layout and fondly remembers her year at Kindergarten. She made some great friends, loved her teacher, and learned so much. We'll miss Chloe Clark Elementary!

Sweet Life Scalloped Banner Layout by Lorilei Murphy

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

I love the softness and daintiness of this new layout by design team member Lorilei Murphy!
I cut the Scalloped Banner cut file from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 3 without any idea of page design or which collection I would use. Once I saw the pretty tiny scalloped border on the scallops I knew light and airy would be perfect.
I chose the Take Me Away collection and used the soft lavender, mint, and coral papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad to back the cut file.

Each end where the scallops join together is the perfect place to add a little embellishment cluster. I have been wanting to use the potted flowers from the Chipboard Stickers forever! YAY perfect spot found for it. I added the "happy happy happy" banner with a bit of white string to finish it off.

On the other banner end spots I used little buttons from Take Me Away. It looks like the buttons and embellishments are helping to hold the banner. I added some pretty layers around my photo and decided to center my photo cluster at the top of the banner swag.

Spring Mini Album by Steffi Ried

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Here is another amazing mini album by design team member Stefanie Ried!
After the Summer, Fall, and Winter, I created a mini album about Spring! Now there is a mini with the beautiful collections of Paige for every season. I love them all :)

You can make an album with Paige's collections in every season. Everything is possible!
After a long time, I've made a mini with only one binder ring. I had so much fun and it is an easy way to crate an album with many pages. First I thought that I would create 6 or 7 pages. But as you can see, there are a few more in the mini album :)

I photographed one day in May. I did not have to go to work, the sun was shining, and my daughter was on vacation. A great spring day!

After breakfast we went for a bike ride and I wore inline skates. It was not that hot yet. Perfect for a bit of sport outside.

Photos of flowers are a MUST in Spring! And so peonies and poppies have come into the album. My favorites.

In the afternoon we went to Anni's swimming class. I am glad that these moments are also captured.

Here are a few more photos of the day in Spring 2018:

Hello Lisbon Layout by Bea Valint

Monday, June 18, 2018

You can't go wrong with a large focal element like a globe! This new layout by design team member Bea Valint leaves me "in stitches!"
Hey everyone, it’s Bea back with a new layout featuring Paige’s Globe cut file. There is nothing like sitting on the beach, watching the playing children, while working on a pretty stitching project! That’s exactly what I did last weekend!
To prepare the stitching template, I turned the cut lines from straight to small dashed lines in Silhouette Studio. I loaded white cardstock into the cutting machine and it made the piercing holes instead of me. I took the template and a bunch of embroidery floss with me to our weekend house and spent some great and relaxing hours hand stitching the background.

I was so happy with the result and couldn’t wait to come back home and finish the page. I didn’t want to hide too much from the background, so I placed the photo on the right edge of the page. I arranged die cut pieces, stickers, and fussy cut flowers around the photo and added my journaling to a journaling card.

I created the title using white foam Mini Thickers and Chipboard Thickers. I colored the foam Thickers using a stamp pad as I learned from Steffi Ried. I also created a cluster at the top of the globe using mostly fussy cut flowers from Paper 02.

This layout was so much fun to create, I hope I could inspire you to give hand stitching a try on your next layout!

Cutie Layout for June Hip Kit Club

Sunday, June 17, 2018

I am super excited to be the guest designer for the June Hip Kit Club! As soon as I got my kits in the mail I got to work play - I was so inspired by the contents!
 First I've got a process video so you can see how this layout came together from start-to-finish.
I started by die cutting my Concentric Stars cut file from lots of different patterned papers in the kit. The cut file cuts the solid inner stars too so I needed to decide which stars and which sides of the double-sided patterned papers to use. Ultimately, I chose the star outlines only and picked a light blue textured cardstock from the kit for my background.
 I adhered all of the stars in place and then used my sewing machine and silver thread to stitch around each star. Don't look too carefully, it's definitely not perfect! But I love the texture and shine it adds. I used the largest solid star as a shield and splashed white acrylic paint and the blue Shimmerz in the kit (yay, my first Shimmerz!) around the background.
 Once the background dried I added two photos and started embellishing with all.the.things. from the kits. There are so many options to choose from! A couple packages of ephemera die cuts, chipboard stickers, labels, puffy stickers, epoxy stickers, paper stickers, alphabet stickers, more and more and more! I could make like 20 layouts from these kits! It would be a super fun self imposed challenge to kill this kit.
 I placed everything at an angle to match the angle of the stars and then wrote journaling on the top right side. A sprinkling of enamel dots here and there is the perfect finishing touch. Done and done!
I hope you are inspired to check out the Hip Kit Club as well as my cut files! Thanks so much for dropping by today!

Monster Jam Layout by Audrey Yeager

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Documenting family adventures is so important and fun - I know my kids love looking at the layouts and scrapbooks of the places we've been and the things we've seen. Check out Audrey Yeager's newest design team layout pairing Pick-Me-Up with my cut files!
Hi everyone! I often use the theme of my page to help me plan my design. I had these photos of our family at a Monster Truck show and I was thinking of the track and the figure 8's. This Circles Wreath cut file reminded me of tracks, so I arranged two of them in a figure 8 pattern.
I also picked a color palette from Paige's Pick-Me-Up papers that are a bit darker and more masculine. There are some shades of brown that went great with my theme.

I first added some paint to the background to give it a gritty look. After die cutting the circles from Paper 12 I layered a few fun phrases and some punched yellow stars. I created a little cluster at the bottom for my journaling.

The title was stamped in brown with the Alphabet Stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed this different page today!

Bend Up Flower Background Layout by Flóra Farkas

Friday, June 15, 2018

I love interactive elements whether on layouts, cards, or mini albums so this new design team layout by Flóra Farkas makes me soooo happy!
Hi ladies, it’s Flóra here with a new scrapbook layout featuring the Pick-Me-Up collection and Paige's Bend Up Flower Background cut file. First, I cut the background using my Silhouette Cameo and Paper 23. I spent some time bending up all the floral elements and the results are worth all the effort! I placed the finished background diagonally on the same patterned paper but this time using the other side. I love the peeking patterns, it gives a lovely frame to my page.
I placed my photo in the middle and decorated around with pink, blue, and gold embellishments. I used the Cut Apart Vellum PaperChipboard StickersEphemera Die CutsPuffy Stickers, and Stickers.

To balance my layout I created another cluster in the right bottom corner. Here I placed two birds, some flowers, and phrases. In the end I wrote my journaling on a tiny piece of a Journaling Spot.

That is it for today! I hope you will try out this unique Bend Up Flower Background cut file by Paige. Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful Layout for Paige's Process at Big Picture Classes

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Here is my last layout from Paige's Process class at Big Picture Classes featuring washi tape banners!
Washi tape is one of those supplies that I have loads of but never seem to use and so I wanted to challenge myself to use as much of it as possible. I grabbed the washi from all my collections that have it: the Sticker Book in Oh My Heart, the Washi Tape Book in Turn the Page, the Washi Tape Book in Pick-Me-Up, and the washi pages in my 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook.
I also love making banners on my layouts so I combined the two - banners & washi! I had fun trying to figure out how to arrange the banners and which embellishments to add. A finishing sprinkling of white acrylic paint to draw the eye around the page does the trick!
That's all six layouts I've shared now from my Paige's Process class at Big Picture Classes! I hope you have found a technique or two to spark your creativity and I'm so thankful for you for joining me! There is a process video over in Lesson 8 so go check it out. See ya again soon!
