Guest Designer | Maryám Pérez

Monday, December 16, 2019

Hello friends! My name is Maryám Pérez and I’m from Chile. You can find me on my blog at, on Instagram @maryampdesign, or my YouTube channel. I am beyond thrilled to be guest designing for Paige this month using her wonderful cut files. Since I saw Paige stitching the Sketch & Stitch Heart Circles cut file back in January at Creativation, I knew I wanted to give it a try as well.
To create my layout, I slightly modified the cut file and deleted the two center rounds of hearts because I wanted to put my photos in there. Next up, I gathered lots of different colors of embroidery thread that coordinated with the colors from the Whimsical collection and then I took a needle and spent some days hand stitching all 70 hearts.
Once I finished, I wanted the hearts to be the main focus of the layout and because these kinds of projects take awhile to create, I only added a few embellishments from the Whimsical collection here and there.

For my next layout, I used another one of my favorite cut files, Butterfly Background. I started by backing the cut file with different patterned papers from Whimsical and once I finished, with the help of some foam dots, I adhered it to the page.
For the background of my layout, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and used Paper 08 from the Turn the Page collection that has polka dots on a pink background.
To embellish my layout, I used bits and pieces from the Whimsical collection as well as iridescent sequins. I added the title and included the journaling in which I tell a little bit about the day I met Paige :)

For my last layout, I used the Layered Flower cut file and created five 3D flowers from different patterned papers from the Whimsical and Turn the Page collections.
I also chose some embellishments from the die cut pack and sticker book from Whimsical that helped me to tell the story from my journaling a little bit better.
And that is it! Thank you so much for stopping by today! 
It was an honor for me to be here as a guest designer and I have to say that I had so much fun creating these projects. I hope you enjoyed these ideas and felt inspired to create something new using the awesome cut files from Paige! Have a great day!
