New Beginnings Layout by Lorilei Murphy

Monday, September 24, 2018

Hello friends! Lorilei here! The one thing I love about scrapbooking and it is particularly prevalent when I get ready to make a layout with Paige's cut files is the mystery of what I will make! That might sound a bit silly, but I find it fun to just stumble across something that speaks to me at that moment and go with it! Looking through Paige's cut files is like browsing through a candy shop. The files say "pick me" for this layout, I chose the Flowers cut file and cut it from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo 3.
I decided to get out my Vicki Boutin mixed media goodies and paint up a background. I wanted the flowers to stand out and I could have painted the flowers and put them on a white background, and I think they would have looked stunning that way too! I used colors from my photo and some pretty gold texture paste. I love the fall colors. I was also inspired by the little 2x2 Paper Pads from Turn the Page.

I added stickers around the layout from the Turn the Page Sticker Book some stamping in black ink for more texture.

I decided to paint the flower centers black and outline the petals with sketchy black lines so the flowers would pop even more! I added foam dot adhesive for dimension. I am really happy with how my layout turned out. This Flowers cut file is really gorgeous and I am sure I will cut it again and try painting the flowers!

Rainbow Day Layout

Sunday, September 23, 2018

Hey there! I have a new layout and process video to share today featuring the brand new Ink Pads and Jumbo Sponge Daubers!
Have a Rainbow First Day by Paige Evans
First, here is a process video so you can see how this layout came together:

I started by die cutting my Pie Chart Heart cut file from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3 and then I used washi tape to tack it onto a smooth white cardstock background. I put all the inner pieces back in place as well as the outer heart to make sure no ink got on the background.

Remove one of the pie chart pieces and then use a Jumbo Sponge Dauber to pick up ink and dab it over the section. These are the colors of ink I used: Parisian Purple, Pink Flamingo, Havana Red, Carnival Pink, Butter Cream, Orange Cream, Ballet Slipper, Candy Shop Pink, Lantern Light, Guacamole, Caribbean, Ballgown Blue, and Oasis. Once finished inking one section, replace the cover/inside piece then remove the next piece and ink that one. So on and so forth until all 13 sections are inked. Remove the templates and admire your pretty work!

Then I added some hand stitching. I pierced holes every half centimeter around each section and found coordinating colors of thread. I did a chain link stitch for the ultimate texture. You can see how to do this stitch in the process video above. It took about five hours to do all the stitching - thanks to FRIENDS for keeping me company whilst sewing :)

After stitching I added the photo and then created the title using white Mini Thickers around the right half. I punched a scalloped border from white cardstock and curved it around the title. To balance that side I wrote journaling around the left half of the heart.

Then I did the tone-on-tone technique using all kinds of embellishments from my Pick-Me-Up collection: Fussy cut bows from Paper 03, fussy cut sentiment bubbles from Paper 08Chipboard StickersEphemera Die CutsPuffy StickersStickersRub-Ons, and sequins & buttons from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. I didn't have much to match the orange section so I added a couple enamel dots.

I hope this layout inspires you to check out the new Ink Pads and Jumbo Sponge Daubers as well as my Pick-Me-Up collection! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love Your Smile Layout by Donna Espiritu

Saturday, September 22, 2018

Hello, everyone! Donna here with another project for the Paige Evans + Silhouette Design Team. I love using wreaths and for my layout today I used Paige's Flower Wreath cut file. I cut it from white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo 3 and then backed with papers from the Pick-Me-Up collection.
I cut a 1.5" strip about from Paper 17 and an inch of Paper 18 then adhered to the left side of the layout. I accentuated the edges with Washi Tape and a leftover product strip from one of the papers.

I adhered the backed cut file using foam tape. Then I used a frame in the Ephemera Die Cuts and layered it with the photo, a doily, and messy thread. I also used some Puffy Stickers and Rub-Ons and embellished the photo as well as the lower left part of the layout.

Lastly, I used the beautiful Chipboard Thickers to create the title "Smile" and then randomly dotted the layout with enamel dots and cork hearts.

That's all from me today! I hope you liked my layout and it inspired you to create something today!

Grateful Layout by Stefanie Ried

Friday, September 21, 2018

Hello and welcome to a new project from me, Steffi. In my last project I already told you that I made room for the new collection, Whimsical. And I have sorted all of Paige's collections in a new way. Some frames from the ephemera packs fell into my hands and I finally used them on this layout.

First I wanted to create a background with the frames. But I didn't like that.

So I arranged the frames centrally in the middle with lots of layering.

Additionally, I sewed some rectangles on the background then I decorated the frames very minimally.

I hope you like the layout and see you soon again!

Thumbs Up Layout by Jana Maiwald-McCarthy

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Hi everyone, Jana here with you today and I have a fun new layout to share. I started this page with Paige's Flower Group cut file. I cut from white cardstock using using my Silhouette Cameo because I knew I wanted have white on white in the background. I scrapped a picture from me with a Snapchat filter and I wanted to make a whimsical layout with a lot of flowers and colors.
I had a look in my Paige Evans stash and found some leftover flowers from Oh My Heart mixed with some fussy cut flowers from the 6x6 Paper Pad from the same collection. The rose gold “thumbs up” Chipboard Sticker title is also from Oh My Heart.

I wanted to use more flowers and so I grabbed a few more from an American Crafts Sticker Book and some fussy cut ones in black and white from a Pinkfresh Studio Paper. I created a huge flower cluster around my photo which I placed on some patterned papers.

I also placed a little bag and a black tag right behind the patterned papers along with some white tulle. The final touches were matching enamel dots and Shimmerz paint splatters. The "snap chat filter" title is Foam Thickers from the Auburn Lane collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I really hope you like my layout!

Heart Squash Mini Album Layout by Julie Taylor

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Hi there scrappy friends, Julie back with you today sharing my version of a mini album. As soon as I saw I’d been assigned a mini album to do I went into a mini meltdown!! I love the look of them but never do them as I find them so fiddly to construct but really shouldn’t have panicked because Paige has lots of mini albums in her shop that are idiot proof and a doddle to put together.
I choose the lovely Heart Squash Mini Album cut file and cut it out of white cardstock using a Silhouette Cameo and decorated it with papers from the Pick-Me-Up collection, mainly focusing on the pink toned papers.
I add some watercolors and texture paste to my background and then punched out various sizes of hearts layering some up and stitching through the middle and adding them to my page. I added a few Rub-Ons and the quote comes from the 30-page Paige Evans #StickerBook.
I added small photos of me & my girls back when they were tiny and decorated with lots of embellishments from Pick-Me-Up and the #StickerBook.

I then had the idea of adding the mini album to a scrapbook page. This is a good way of adding extra photos on your layouts and a great interactive element.

I attached the mini book with strong adhesive and added some twine to the page to keep the mini album shut, looping it around a Take Me Away Button.

I hope if you’re anything like me and find mini books a challenge that you’ll take a look at Paige’s mini album cut files and see for yourself just how easy they are to use. Thanks for stopping by, until next time!

A Mother's Love Layout

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

I joined the Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors video hop and here is the layout I made for it:
A Mother's Love by Paige Evans
Check out the process video to see how this layout came together:
I started by die cutting two of my floral bunch cut files from textured white cardstock and then applied white gesso over both of them. I used a hair dryer to speed up the drying process a bit.
Then I applied the liquid watercolors to the die cuts and painted each flower and set of leaves a bright color. Once those die cuts dried I stitched them to the top and bottom edges of a smooth white cardstock background. I picked a black & white photo of me and the kids and glued it between the flowers.

I wanted the watercolored flowers to be the main draw of the page so I didn't add much else as far as embellishments. For the title I used the dark blue puffy stickers from the Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 collection and used a "love" die cut too. I added a "wishes" wood veneer sticker below and journaled to the left. To finish I added white enamel dots around the page.
Be sure to check out the Pinkfresh Studio Liquid Watercolors - sure to brighten up any page!!

Pick-Me-Up Cards by Flóra Farkas

Hi Girls, it’s Flóra is here. Today I want to show you my latest set of cards I made with the Pick-Me-Up collection. I love the bold patterns of Paper 04 and Paper 07 but never managed to use them on a scrapbook layout so I decided to use them on a smaller scale.
I trimmed paper pieces and adhered them on a white A2 card base. I fussy cut frames from Paper 19 and added phrases from the Cut Apart Vellum Paper in the middle. I am in love with the shiny gold foil! I glued the framed titles with foam tape in the middle.

I decorated around the title with cut outs, Chipboard Stickers, and Puffy Stickers. I love the summer look of my handmade cards and didn’t regret to use these amazing busy patterned papers. I hope you found new ideas here today! Thanks for stopping by!

Cute Cousins Layout

Monday, September 17, 2018

I have a new layout & process video to share today that I made for the Pink Paislee blog featuring my Pick-Me-Up collection and butterfly punches!
Cute Cousins by Paige Evans
First, check out the short & sweet process video to see how this layout came together start-to-finish:
I began by punching a whole bunch of butterflies in four different sizes from almost all 24 patterned papers in Pick-Me-Up, both the front and back sides. I focused mostly on the solid colored papers but also punched images from papers with icons and went crazy on Paper 10 with all the squares of different patterns.
Once all of the butterflies were punched I arranged them into rainbow order going from purple to red, pink, salmon, yellow, blue, aqua, and dark blue. I chose a cream textured cardstock for my background and adhered a 3" square black & white photo on the bottom right corner.
Starting at the top edge of the photo, I began placing the butterflies continuing with the rainbow order theme. I placed adhesive only on the middle so that the wings could bend up. I added the largest butterflies first and then filled in the empty spaces with the smaller ones.
Once all of the butterflies were adhered I stitched down each one using my sewing machine and white thread and then bent up all the wings for lots of dimension. I created a title at the bottom edge of the photo with the blue Mini Thickers and then trimmed a tiny colorful edge from one of the papers in the 6x6 Paper Pad.
A few Chipboard Stickers, the year made with Stickers, and some hand written journaling finished up this page! With so much color going on, the layout didn't need much else - the butterflies are the main design element and I love the rainbow effect! I hope you are inspired to bust out your punches and create a colorful layout using the Pick-Me-Up collection! Thanks for stopping by today!
