Welcome Layout by Stefanie Ried

Tuesday, September 21, 2021

 Hello and welcome to a new layout by me, Stefanie Ried! This is my first layout with the beautiful collection Bungalow Lane. The colors and icons immediately made me think warm thoughts and put me in a cozy mood. When it gets cold outside, then you make it cozy in the house. All the beautiful embellishments go with that. When I saw all the papers, I did not know where to start first. But the first layout was going to be something special. It is dedicated to our hamster Chilli. We have had her for a year now and she is totally cute. My daughter loves to feed her and watch her play in the wheel. 

I chose the autumnal motifs to match. I cut out a few leaves and used sentiment stickers - these hung on yarn. In between I attached a few cute button Embossed Puffy Stickers. They are one of my favorites from this collection.

At the top, I threaded the end from the yarn through a wooden bead and attached it with Washi Tape in the matching color.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great start to fall!

Stamped Layout & Cards by Paige Evans

Monday, September 20, 2021

 Fun news: I have a Bungalow Lane Acrylic Stamps Set exclusive to scrapbook.com! This is in addition to the Acrylic Stamps already apart of Bungalow Lane :) I made a layout and pair of cards with the new Acrylic Stamps Set to show you some fun ways to use these exclusive stamps:

For this layout, I began by stamping the wreath on a piece of Bazzill smooth white cardstock in 18 different colors of ink that matched Bungalow Lane. I used Altenew inks in Pink Diamond, Sunkissed, Sea Glass, Frayed Leaf, Citrus Burst, Rouge, Caramel Toffee, Honey Drizzle, Olive, Crimson, Blush, Maple Yellow, Coral Bliss, Warm Sunshine, Moss, and Sea Breeze. I also used two colors of scrapbook.com inks: Ballgown Blue and Candy Shop Pink. I overlapped the wreaths to create my own faux patterned paper background.
Next I stamped the two flowers and three hearts on another sheet of Bazzill smooth white cardstock in the same 18 colors of ink and spent an hour fussy cutting out all the images. I placed two photos in the center and then added the fussy cut stamped images all around the background with foam squares so they pop off the page and create dimension.
Since I wanted the stamping to be the focal element, I didn't add too much embellishing. In the stamp set is an apple the says "sweet" so I stamped that with dark blue ink on white cardstock, cut around the word, and then layered it over another stamped heart directly on the photo to make a tiny caption. I'm churning ice cream in the photos so I thought the word "sweet" went along with the theme nicely!
I wrote journaling and the date with a dark blue pen on a journaling spot from the Ephemera Die Cuts and tucked it along with a tag from the same set under the right photo.
The title is also a phrase from the Ephemera Die Cuts, "made with love". I notched the right end and overlapped it over the bottom of the left photo to finish. I loved creating almost an entire layout from stamps!
I had a bunch of hearts leftover so I decided to create two cards. I simply added machine stitching onto two Bazzill textured white cardstock card bases and glued the hearts on top. The "Thankful" is a gold sentiment cut out from an Ephemera Die Cut and the "Thank You" is a gold sticker from the 8-Page Sticker Book. Easy peasy!
I hope you are inspired to pick up this new and exclusive Bungalow Lane Acrylic Stamps Set from scrapbook.com! Let me know if you have any questions!

Guest Designer | Kerstin Scheidler

Sunday, September 19, 2021

Hello everyone! I'm Kerstin Scheidler and I'm excited to be Paige's cut file guest designer for September! You can find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. Paige has a lot of great cut files and it was really hard to choose. I wanted to show you three different layouts - see below!

Fall is just around the corner and Paige's new Bungalow Lane collection is perfect for it. For my first layout I chose the Pumpkin cut file, cut it to 7x6.5", and centered it on my page. Then I filled the center pieces with different papers from the Bungalow Lane collection. I inserted my photo in the center. On the top right and left I played with the different embellishments from this collection. Leaves, twigs, and butterflies fit perfectly!

Branches and autumn are a perfect combination and the Branch Wreath cut file is fitting for it! I cut it out two times at 8" and placed them both on top of each other in the center of my paper. The most beautiful part of a layout for me is playing with all the different embellishments! Bungalow Lane has great ones! I especially love the little Embossed Puffy Stickers! I arranged the different embellishments in colors - pink, yellow, blue - and embellished them with little flowers and buttons. I placed my photo in the center of the wreath. I love how it turned out!

For the third layout I decided to use the Picture Wheel cut file. I cut it to 8.5" and glued the inner pieces on in a circle. To do this, I laid the frame on my cardstock and glued the pieces in place. After that I removed the frame and decorated! Papers folded, papers rolled, leaves, and flowers - no limits to your imagination here. I cut my photo to the size of the cut out parts and glued it on the top right. I "hate" socks and this photo of me (... laugh ... my feet) fits perfectly!

I had great fun being creative with Paige's cut files! I hope I could inspire you and wish you a great day!

Layout & Cards for Zsoka by Paige Evans

Saturday, September 18, 2021

My sweet & talented friend and Design Team member Zsoka Marko has a shop called A Pocket Full of Happiness and a group of crafters have come together to support her and her business! I made a layout and a set of cards, all featuring Zsoka's Metal Dies paired with Bungalow Lane!

For this first card, I die cut the Rainbow Background Die from Bazzill smooth white cardstock and used spray adhesive to attach it into a piece of the blue striped paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. Then I die cut the rainbow 5 more times from 5 patterned papers (red is Paper 15, light pink and orange is from the 6x8 Paper Pad, yellow is Paper 8, and green is Paper 24) and did the inlay technique for the little paper pieces to create all the rainbows. I distressed the edges of the panel and machine stitched it onto a white cardstock card base. For some extra texture I created zigzag stitches with gold thread on the edges and then added three groups of white and clear enamel dots from my stash. To finish I added a "thankful" sentiment from the 8-Page Sticker Book with foam squares. 

The second card features the Fly Away With Me Die Set which includes two large and two small butterflies as well as the Thank You Die Set. I cut a set of butterflies from Paper 1Paper 9Paper 15, and Paper 20. I layered the 4 butterflies from each pattern together and machine stitched down the centers. I distressed the edges of a panel made from Paper 21 and machine stitched it onto a white cardstock card base. I die cut the Thank You Die Set from Bazzill textured white cardstock and inlaid it with Paper 6. I glued the four butterflies onto the card front, trimmed off any excess, then adhered the sentiment to the center with foam adhesive. To finish I added cream and pink enamel dots here & there.

The third card showcases the Love Letters Die Set. I actually made 5 variations of this same card with leftovers from the layout (keep scrolling to see it!). I die cut the Love Letters backings from Bazzill smooth white cardstock and the top layers from a multitude of Bungalow Lane patterned papers (this exact one is Paper 12). I glued the layers together with liquid adhesive. Like the previous cards, I distressed the edges of a paper panel (this is Paper 17), machine stitched it with white and gold thread onto a white cardstock card base, then added the letters with foam squares for dimension. I trimmed a tiny "YOU" word from a sticker in the 8-Page Sticker Book and added it under the "E". I tucked two gold foil leaf Foam Stickers into the letters and finished with three groups of white and clear enamel dots from my stash.

This love card using the Love Letters Die Set is exactly the same except the letters are die cut from Paper 4 and the patterned panel is Paper 17. Instead of foam leaf stickers I added gold foil transparency leaf stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book. Now I have a bunch of "love you" cards in my stash to grab and send when I need to!

This card features Zsoka's Floral Doily Die Set and Hello Die Set. I was immediately reminded of sunflowers when I saw the Floral Doily Die Set so I went about cutting the pieces from yellow and brown/kraft patterned papers, namely Paper 7Paper 8Paper 11, and Paper 14. I backed the center pieces with Bazzill textured white cardstock before adhering them onto the larger flower part with foam adhesive for dimension. I trimmed a panel of the green Paper 5 and added the flowers at opposite corners. After I trimmed the excess flowers, I adhered a couple of the pieces back on the card edges. I love the way all the layered flowers look! Then I distressed the panel edges and machine stitched it onto a white cardstock card base. I die cut the Hello Die Set from Bazzill smooth white cardstock and inlaid it with Paper 21 before adding it with foam squares and liquid glue onto the card. To finish I added more clear and white enamel dots from my stash for a bit of interest.

Here is a look at all the cards with an alternate "LOVE" card. I can't pick a fave :)

Onto the layout!
I die cut over a dozen Love Letters from Bazzill smooth white cardstock and a bunch of Bungalow Lane patterned papers then pieced them together with liquid glue. I arranged them onto a light blue cardstock background at an angle with foam squares for dimension then trimmed off any excess. I splashed watered down white acrylic paint on top for another layer of interest.
I added a 4" square photo of Fox in the corner and added "YOU" Thickers above also at an angle to complete the title. I machine stitched through the Thickers to keep them in place permanently. To embellish I added a button Chipboard Sticker to almost every "O".
I tucked a journaling spot from the Ephemera Die Cuts under the left side of the photo and wrote on it with a blue pen. I added a light blue ric rac border sticker from the Cardstock Stickers under the photo so it looks like scallops. To finish I slid on a red Bird Paper Clip to the top right corner of the photo.

And just as a refresher, Zsoka and I did a fun collaboration together! She turned a couple of my cut files into metal dies: Floral Border and Floral Corner which you can also find in her Dies Shop! All of the details about these cards are on my blog post HERE.
I hope that you'll pop on over to Zsoka's A Pocket Full of Happiness shop and pick up a few items to show her some love and support - would mean the world to me and to her :) Let me know if you have any questions and I'll see you again in my next post!
Have a happy scrappy day!

7th Grade Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, September 17, 2021

Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko back with a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team! This is my very first page with the amazing new Bungalow Lane collection! I'm so in love with the colors, patterns, and all the wonderful embellishments! I don't have fall photos yet this year and I'm too lazy to go through old photos, so I decided to go with some recent photos of my kiddo's first day back at school. My whole life, school start meant fall - only since we've been living in Germany does school often start already in summer. There was one year where it started beginning of August and I was so upset haha! I mean, normally it's the biggest heat here, and I was just so sorry for the kids having to sit in a classroom instead of being at the pool! I always started in September and I can't accept this early start LOL. That said, this year he started at the very end of August, so we can consider that fall. The clothes he was wearing that day match Bungalow Lane quite nicely too!

I chose Paige's Geometric Apple cut file because it goes well with the school theme and because it has lots of openings that I could fill with various patterned papers. When I create my first layout with a new collection, I usually want to use every single thing, so a cut file like this is perfect for adding as many patterned papers as you want. I cut it from heavyweight white cardstock in a larger size, then backed it with patterned papers in pink, red, and yellow tones. I considered going the blue boy layout route for a hot minute, but I prefered lots of color!

I layered tissue paper and a few ephemera pieces behind my photos to add some dimension. I glued down the apple on a navy striped background, then my photos as well. I started adding a few embellishments, die cuts, stickers, and alpha Thickers for my title. I wrote my journaling onto a label sticker and partially tucked it behind my photo.

Since the upper left side felt a bit empty, I attached a chipboard there with my Tiny Attacher. I also splattered some white acrylic paint in that corner as well as the bottom right.

I do have a process video to go with this page, if you're interested: https://youtu.be/45_i4uoeedg

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!

Autumn Leaf Mini Album by Amber Mitchell

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

 Hello crafty friends, Amber Mitchell here on Paige's blog today to share with you this leaf-shaped mini album I created to usher in the Fall season! To create this album, I used the Bungalow Lane collection and Paige's Large Leaf cut file.

This album consists of five pages that I cut from the following papers from Bungalow Lane: Paper 4Paper 5Paper 7Paper 8, and Paper 10. I resized the Large Leaf cut file to be roughly 5 x 5.5 inches using my Cricut software. I love smaller albums so this size worked perfectly for me!

Next, I machine stitched along the edges of all of my pages to add extra texture. This was a bit time consuming, given all of the corners of this file, but in the end, it was totally worth it!

To bind my album, I opted to use binder rings. To give the cover of this mini a cleaner look, I added some orange eyelets and then some white rings to offset the bright and fun colors in this collection.

I had so much fun embellishing this mini album! The Bungalow Lane collection has so many different types of embellishments and I found myself wanting to use a little bit of everything!

On the cover, I added a large title using the Thickers. I love the knit pattern and the colors of these alphas. To date the mini, I used the Mini Foam Thickers from the Pick-Me-Up collection. These Thickers are some of my favorites; they're perfect for adding titles and dates into small spots.

In this album, I documented memories from Fall 2019. To showcase more than one photo per page, I zig-zag stitched strings of them together using my sewing machine. In between the photos for some fun contrast, I added sentiments from the 2x2 Paper Pads. I also used these pads to mat my photos which measure just under 2 x 2 inches. These strings of photos accordion fold onto one another, which is great way to utilize space when working with a compact mini.

To embellish the rest of my album, I used a mix of the following products: Chipboard StickersEpoxy StickersFloral Die CutsBird Paper ClipsStitched LeavesEmbossed Puffy StickersLayered StickersFoam Phrase StickersCardstock Stickers, and the 8-Page Sticker Book. See; so many fun products to use in this collection! I love how all of the different textures mesh together and stand out all at the same time. It adds a ton of depth to each individual page and made the embellishing process super fun and easy!

For a finishing touch, I added one of the Heart Charms along with some extra charms from my stash to one of the rings. I feel like nothing completes an album like a cute dangle made up of fun bits and pieces.

And that's this album finished! Fall is my favorite season of them all, so creating this album and documenting these memories was so much fun! Thanks for stopping by my post today. I'll see you next time with another fun project!
