But First Coffee Layout by Zsoka Marko

Thursday, June 18, 2020

Hello crafty peeps, Zsoka Marko stopping by to share a new layout for the Paige Evans Design Team! While I had the Horizon collection out last time, I decided to create another layout with it! I had had this photo on my desk since last summer but never really found a collection that worked with the colors. Enter all the blues and yellows in Horizon and we have a perfect match!
I can't drink coffee anymore but last summer I could still enjoy a couple of espressos a day! I loved sitting on the balcony with a cup of foamy goodness after Maxim left for school in the morning. Over the years I got used to crafting at night so I often sleep very little and espresso helped me wake up and make myself useful :D. I picked out the cut file first, it's totally random, nothing to do with the layout, but I really don't mind using flowers on everything. This one is one of the newer ones by Paige called Flowers and it's so pretty!

I then selected all the blue and yellow papers and went through the embellishments too. Luckily there were plenty of things to choose from. I backed the cut file then glued it down on my background of Paper 08. I added my photo then started embellishing. I tucked some tags and labels behind my photo. I created the date label from patterned paper and white cardstock - I like when my labels match the rest of the papers! I added sentiment StickersFloral Die Cuts, and Chipboard Stickers.

For my title (very original, isn't it?! But so true!) I used the navy mini alpha thickers from the Pick-Me-Up collection. To finish off my page I added my journaling and a few enamel dots.

That's all! Do you guys prefer limited color palettes like I used here or are more into colorful layouts? I love them all the same! I also love monochromatic! Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

  2. So GORGEOUS! Loving the colors, the flowers and that photo!!!

  3. Hi ya Zsoka ! I love the colours you designed with and how you pulled it all together. I usually gravitate to lots of colour but admittedly, love it all ways too. Either colourful, monochromatic or limited, it's usually the way it's all put together that grabs me. I love clusters that draw your eye to the photo and you've done this so beautifully !! 😍💕 Cheers K
