You, Me & the Sea Layout by Heidi Lewis


Thursday, June 13, 2024

Hello friends, it's Heidi Lewis back on the blog today to share a layout inspired by an illustration I saw on Pinterest. I don't think I would ever want to go on a submarine because I get claustrophobic easily, but it was fun to make one out of paper from Garden Shoppe!
I hand cut my submarine from Paper 7 and die cut circles in the center of the submarine to make little shaker windows. Next I machine stitched the submarine onto a navy background. The submarine is embellished with Washi Tape and several border stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book. Three Washi Tape strips extending from the submarine create the effect of headlights. I added a seaweed cluster made from Floral Die Cuts to the bottom left corner. Then I cut the Fish Background from Paper 11 and arranged the fish onto my background around the ship. I made the title from a combination of mini alphabet stickers in the 8-Page Sticker Book and Thickers. I added two 2x3" photos from an aquarium on Pier 49 in San Francisco. This layout would also work well for any ocean-themed or aquarium photos. Or perhaps you've taken a tour of a real submarine or have kiddos that have submarine photos? Whatever photos you choose, I hope you feel inspired to do some summer scrapping with the Fish Background cut file!

My Lucky Star Layout by Paige Evans


Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Here is the third of the six layouts we learned how to make at the Crop in Orlando using the Moonlight Magic collection by Crate Paper! I do have a class PDF available for purchase HERE which includes the links to supplies I used and step-by-step written instructions. Techniques include a fun and whimsical wreath made of patterned paper stars topped with various foam, cardstock, and mini puffy star stickers! Stars on stars on stars! Repetition for the win!
I loved showcasing two photos of Fox mowing the lawn on this layout. What do stars and mowing the lawn have to do with each other? Not much but why not?! You could easily replace the pics with camping, dancing, or other celebratory event photos! The sky's the limit (get it? lol). Let me know if you have any questions and be sure to check out my Moonlight Magic Layouts Class PDF!

Summer Layout by Danielle Miller


Hi friends! Danielle Miller here sharing a layout with Paige's Summer Title from the 20 Summer Cut Files!
This layout was created with the Splendid Project Pad6x8 Paper PadFloral Die Cuts, and the Ephemera Die Cuts. I’ve been getting back into creating mixed media backgrounds. This one was created with Distress Oxides in Speckled Egg. I love how all the orange, pinks, and purples pop off the background. The cut file was popped off the page with foam dots. I hope this inspires you, let me know if you have any questions!

Pineapple Layout by Audrey Mutschall


Tuesday, June 11, 2024

Hello friends! Audrey Mutschall here with a new layout featuring Paige’s Pineapple from the 24 Summer Cut Files and the gorgeous Splendid collection! I started by cutting the Pineapple from white cardstock and backing the leaves with various green patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad. I backed the bottom portion of the pineapple with yellow Paper 21 and also cut out little individual segments that I adhered above the cut file using foam tape. This gives extra dimension to the pineapple and really makes it come to life!
I chose dark pink Paper 8 for the background and added a few splatters of white acrylic paint on top. I placed the pineapple on the left of the page and embellished it with lots of Floral Die Cuts and some fussy cut flowers from Paper 1. My photo is tucked behind the cut file on the right side, embellished with a strip from Paper 21 and an Epoxy Sticker. I had already used up most of my Thickers from the Splendid collection, so I used fussy cut alphas from Paper 8 of the Blooming Wild collection, arranging them to create a title. Lastly, I embellished with fussy cut bees and a cute little bird from Paper 20 as well as a decorative banner from the Ephemera Die Cuts. I had so much fun creating this fun and vibrant layout and I hope it inspires you to check out Paige’s Pineapple from the 24 Summer Cut Files!

Ready for Summer Layout by Ashley Neu


Monday, June 10, 2024

Hello friends! It’s Ashley Neu here for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! I hope you are enjoying your summer. We have officially been out of school for almost 2 weeks and it seems like it’s already flying by! I love to take photos of my girls on the last day of school to see just how much they’ve grown over the school year. The Summer Title from the 24 Summer Cut Files was perfect to document these photos. I used the Blooming Wild collection to create a bright and sunny layout.
After cutting the Summer  Title from white cardstock, I backed it with patterned papers from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I grabbed Paper 3 to cut a large circle to represent the sun. This was the perfect place for the backed cut file to be and really helped create a focal point on the layout. To “ground” the cut file onto the circle, I used 2 border strips cut from Paper 1. This patterned paper has so many useful pieces to use on a layout. I added my photos printed at 2x2.5” and tucked in some fussy cut flowers from Paper 2. It wasn’t until the end of the process of putting this layout together that I decided to add the words “READY FOR” to finish off the title. I used the Thickers from the collection - they are so fun with their two-toned colors and small stitched details. Lastly, I added Pops of Color drops in the colors Sunshine, Orange Creamsicle, and Flamingo to match the sun! Thank you so much for stopping by Paige’s blog today. I hope you have been inspired by my layout. Have a wonderful day!

Love Layout by Yui Oku


Thursday, June 6, 2024

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Yui Oku here sharing a new layout using Paige's Splendid collection and her Love Lined cut file.
I love rainbow patterned papers and making a rainbow color layout using them! I backed the Love Lined title with Paper 13 and Paper 21. This patterned papers come in a rainbow of colors unique to the collection. For the background I chose Paper 5Paper 13 doesn't have a yellow stripe, so I wanted to add yellow. Paper 14 is striped with phrases! I wanted to use this too and I chose the "WONDERFUL"stripe. For the photo mat I found cute camera and photo die cuts then I added additional embellishments.

Ballerina Layout by Valerie Bisson


Tuesday, June 4, 2024

Hi friends! Valerie Bisson here and I’m so happy to share a new layout with you featuring Paige's Tiny Hearts Background and Ballet Slippers cut files paired with her Blooming Wild and Bungalow Lane collections.
For this page of my little ballerina I wanted shades of pink so I started with Paper 7 from Bungalow Lane for the background. Then with white cardstock I cut the Tiny Hearts Background and used Paper 23 from Blooming Wild for backing it. Next for the Ballet Slippers I used Paper 1 from Bungalow Lane and also a pink patterned paper in the 6x8 Paper Pad from Blooming Wild. Then I placed everything on the background in an eye-catching pleasing. With the We R Makers Scallop Lace Edge Punch I made 2 border strips to run along side my photo, also adding in some hand stitching through the ready made design from the punch. These detailed scalloped strips help draw extra attention to the large photo. I embellished with a Chipboard Frame Sticker backed with patterned paper, vellum over top, and the "Tiny Dancer" title inside the frame. I added a few fussy cut flowers scattered across the page and a label from the Blooming Wild Sticker Book for journaling. Finally, three white foam hearts and white acrylic paint splatters to finish off my page. Have a wonderful crafty day and I hope you are inspired to create with Paige's cut files!

BeYouTiful Layout by Sophie Delorme


Monday, June 3, 2024

Hello scrappy friends! Sophie Delorme here and I have a lovely layout to share using Paige's older Bloom Street collection and her "BeYouTiful" cut file.
I couldn't find a better title to document my shopping day with my little Sabrina for her prom dress a few weeks ago. I hand stitched around the "Be" and "Tiful" letters with yellow thread and mounted them on foam adhesive to make the title stand out on my page. I think that the color scheme of the Bloom Street collection was perfect to match my photo! I fussy cut a few flowers and leaves out of a patterned paper to embellish around my photo and title and added two cute scalloped borders created with a border punch from my stash at the base of the page. I hope that you like it! Big title cut files are amazing starting points on a layout!
