Favorite Layout by Zsoka Marko

Thursday, March 5, 2020

Hello there crafty friends! Zsoka Marko back today with a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team! The wonderful new collection, Bloom Street is finally in the house! The colors and patterns have me yearning for spring!

I don't know about you guys, but every time I work with a new collection, I'm completely overwhelmed. I want to use EVERYTHING, all at once, haha! It's especially hard for me to decide on what papers to use. I mean there are 48 beautiful designs to choose from, oh my gosh! I do have a few favorite papers though. Like this one with the pastel stripes - I call them PJ stripes, not sure why, but this paper gives me retro PJ vibes hehe! It's the B-side of Paper 16.

I cut a few small Leaf Wreaths from white cardstock. I backed all but one with patterned papers, the last one with my photo. I'd had this photo on my desk for years, I'm not even kidding. I generally don't scrap photos of things, just people, which is probably why I never scrapped this. But it's so full of color (it's a fruit/vegetable/flower stand in Taormina, Sicily), I really wanted to put it on a page and the photo I was going to use on this layout didn't work with these colors, so why not this one then? I stitched around cut files down with my sewing machine.

I then figured out how I wanted to arrange the wreaths on my page. I added foam adhesive to all of them, then glued them down. I used a scrap piece of floral Paper 15 for my corner. I also used a border bunch on a pink paper strip, then tucked this behind the floral paper - as well as a small scalloped border that I cut off an Ephemera Die Cut.

I added a few embellishments to the circles: Ephemera Die CutsCardstock StickersPuffy Vinyl Stickers, things from the 4-Page Sticker Book, and Enamel Dots. For my title I chose a Puffy Vinyl Sticker which I slightly tucked behind the punched border. Last but not least, I wrote my journaling.

That's it, easy peasy! I hope I could inspire you today in some small way! I'll be back with another page soon. Have a wonderful day!
