Always Dream Layout

Sunday, July 14, 2019

I created a layout with the new Pink Paislee #StickerBook which is half Auburn Lane and half Indigo & Ivy. This page features the Indigo & Ivy collection and stickers plus a few other things :)
I started by punching a 2 1/2" hexagon from papers in the 6x6 Paper Pad and a few of the 12x12 Papers. I distressed the edges of each hexagon and then used my sewing machine with gold thread to stitch around the borders.

I used the B-side rainbow stripes Paper 12 as my background and splashed watered down white acrylic paint as well as Vintage Pastels watercolors all across it. Once it dried, I machine stitched with white thread between all of the blue stripes for texture and interest. For the final touch on the background, I used my Polka Dots Stencil and scraped white pearl modeling paste through it here and there.

I punched three photos into hexagons and then arranged them along with the patterned paper hexagons across the background. Once happy with the placement of everything I used dimensional adhesive to attach the hexagons to the background.

Next I came in with the #StickerBook. The stickers in these books are thin and mostly meant for planners which aren't necessarily supposed to be bulky (but I love a thicc planner haha!), and since I keep failing at being a planner girl (lol) I use them for scrapbooking. I peeled off stickers I thought I would use and placed them first onto white cardstock and then fussy cut them out to make them more like die cuts.

I arranged a whole bunch of these stickers-turned-die-cuts under and around the trio of photos and in the middle of a lot of the hexagons. I wrote journaling with a blue pen on one of the lighter colored hexagons and then used one of the gold foil die cuts from the Ephemera Die Cuts pack for my title.

I have a million detail shots:

I hope this layout inspires you to pick up the new Pink Paislee #StickerBook!

  1. This is GORGEOUS!!!!! I love love love those photos, the hexagons and the distressing!!! You are amazing!!!!

  2. So cute Paige! Adore the gold stitching and pop of gold with the title. It's so nice when elements are repeated throughout a design. For some reason, the colours and patterns in this collection remind me of a stylish menswear shop, maybe selling travel/summer fashions. I often wish I could buy paper patterns in fabric and sew something beautiful. Maybe a future branch of your collections? :D Cheers, xK
