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!

Love the Good Life Layout by Lorilei Murphy


Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Lorilei Murphy softens up her beautiful layout with a sheet of vellum. Read on for more details and instructions!
Lately I have had Oh My Heart on my mind! It is still one of my favorite collections by Paige and Pink Paislee. I got out my stash and set to work backing the Geometric Background cut file with all the pretty patterned papers in Oh My Heart. The Geometric Background is really lovely to back, it is all straight lines and it makes a big impact when finished!
Once I started on the cluster of flowers around my photo, I realized that the flowers and cards were blending in with the background too much, so I added a simple piece of vellum to the background to soften the brightness. I had been playing around with some Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze through Paige’s Flower Bunch cut file and had the gold covered cut file left over so I added it in between the background and photo cluster.

I love how bright and cheerful the layout is. The florals in Oh My Heart make me happy every time!

Fashionista Layout by Missy Whidden


Tuesday, June 12, 2018

This is one of those layouts by Missy Whidden that immediately makes me want to run to my scrap space and use the same papers!
Hey, friends! Missy here with a new layout. Do you ever get inspired by a single sheet of patterned paper? I’ve had the Pick-Me-Up collection since January and after eyeballing Paper 24 the perfect idea popped into my head. These photos are of my silly daughter. She wriggled one of her arms out of her pajama top one morning. I found her standing in the front window like a store model with her “off-the-shoulder” outfit haha! She looked too cute, so I decided to use these shirts as a design element. I fussy cut several shirts out and arranged them into two clotheslines. I added a photo on both lines and machine stitched across the top. I left the threads loose and messy to accentuate the look of the shirts hanging.
I used dark blue cardstock as my base and I added lots of gold metallic paint down first. I smudged it with a palette knife and then did the same with some light blue & green paint. I added more layers with some gesso, more paint, and even some pink ink spray. I tucked in gold thread to enhance the pops of gold from the background. I embellished with bits and pieces from the Pick-Me-Up Puffy StickersChipboard Stickers, and Rub-Ons in this area.

I overlapped the shirt sleeves and glued them together. I added dimension by adding adhesive foam under each shirt. I wanted little details on the shirts so I topped each one with either a Pick-Me-Up Chipboard Sticker or Puffy Sticker.  I also used a few of the Oh My Heart Puffy Stickers. I pulled some banner pieces from the Pick-Me-Up Stickers as well.

I created my title in the center between the clotheslines using a fussy cut banner piece from Pick-Me-Up Paper 13. I used the Pick-Me-Up Mini Thickers for the actual title and tore a piece of the Pick-Me-Up Washi Tape Book right under that. I touched the area up with gold machine stitching.

This was a lot of fun to create! I hope you pulled some fun ideas to try on your next layout. Thanks for stopping by!
