Stay Golden Layout by Paige Evans

Sunday, April 30, 2023

I taught a Virtual Layouts Class last week and I'm sharing one of the pages here today featuring patterned paper frames!
The class is available online HERE.
I used the  Live & Let Grow collection by Jen Hadfield to create this colorful page!
This is such a fun technique to try with any collection and you can change the number of frames for a whole new look!
Upon purchase a PDF will be emailed with the link to the YouTube video where the class takes place on the first page, a list of supplies to buy or gather from your stash, photo sizes, instructions, any homework needed to be completed before the class, and templates to download/print/cut. The class is saved for rewatching at your convenience.
Let me know if you have any questions about anything, always happy to help!
I hope you are inspired to check out my Virtual Layouts Class featuring patterned paper frames!

Two of a Kind Layout by Lisa Fonseca

Saturday, April 29, 2023

Hi scrappy friends, Lisa Fonseca back with a fun rainbow layout using Paige's Heart Burst Cut File and her Blooming Wild collection!
I backed all the different triangles with patterned papers from Blooming Wild (except the redish-orangy one which is from Garden Shoppe) and backed the heart with gold glitter paper from my stash. Then I stitched three lines into each triangle and also stitched lines on the opposite side to continue the design. For the title I used Thickers and then I used all kinds of embellishments to add to the layout like the Cardstock StickersChipboard Stickers, and Sticker Book.
I hope you like it and are ready for a colorful spring and that you're inspired to use the Heart Burst Cut File with Paige's Blooming Wild collection!

3-Rings Mini Album by Paige Evans

On Wednesday I taught a 3-Rings Mini Album Class and it's available online HERE!
I used the  Live & Let Grow collection by Jen Hadfield to create this fun & interactive mini album made of tags, cards, and flip ups, complete with page turners, and so much more - all held together with 3 loose leaf binder rings!
This 3-Rings Mini Album features a decorated front and back cover with 14 spreads and is filled with photos of our day in Staufen, Germany.

Machine stitching is always optional but you know me, I LOVE adding stitching for texture!

My Love Layout by Kelly Daye

Thursday, April 27, 2023

Hello friends! Kelly Daye here with a new layout using Paige’s beautiful Blooming Wild collection paired with the Cut & Bend Flower Background Cut File. After your electronic cutter cuts the file, you simply and gently bend up the flower petals. What you get is a beautiful reveal of the floral pattern with your paper peeking out from beneath.
To begin, I sized the cut file to 11” square, cut it from white cardstock, then trimmed a ½” off on all sides. I used a rubber stamp and 10 Distress Oxides inks to mimic splatter all over the background. Then I bent up the flowers, spray glued the back, and centered it over the gorgeous rainbow Paper 22. Next I built two collages, one top left, the other on the bottom right. They’re filled with all-the-pretty things from the collection including Floral Die Cuts and Chipboard Stickers by way of butterflies and birds. I used the oval LOVE Ephemera Die Cut as my main title. It’s stitched with DMC floss and adorned with the Mini Flower Puffy Stickers. I used the Thickers to spell ‘MY’ and set that on one of the Chipboard Rounds - it’s tucked into the top collage and completes my title. Around the background, you’ll find sweet colored hearts from the Puffy Phrase Stickers and little flowers from the Mini Flower Puffy Stickers. My photo is set into a frame along with a pretty floral index tab, both from the Chipboard Stickers. For even more texture and impact, the index tab was adorned with foiled ric rac and a transparent floral spray, both from the Sticker Book. To finish, I chain stitched tone-on-tone all around my layout with 24 colors of DMC embroidery floss.
I hope this layout inspires you to try the Cut & Bend Flower Background Cut File along with Paige's Blooming Wild collection! Thank you so much for visiting! See you again soon!

You Glow Girl Layout by Jennifer Rambert

Wednesday, April 26, 2023

Hello creative friends! Jennifer Rambert here today with a colorful new layout featuring Paige's Pie Chart Cut File and the Blooming Wild collection.
I started by cutting out the Pie Chart from Paper 19 then from watercolor paper which I then tinted yellow to bring some pep and to match the photo. I distressed the edges and I glued the patterns alternating the colors, then I placed the pattern in the center of my page by shifting the spokes and sewing every other spoke. I then glued the photo in the center and decorated the bottom of the photo with flowers cut from Paper 2. I placed a Chipboard Round into this pile of flowers, hearts Chipboard Stickers, and sewing thread. On the photo I added pennants from the Sticker Book and a tab Chipboard Sticker. I then added the title to the top right made with the Thickers and Puffy Phrase Stickers. In the center of this title I made a cluster of flowers with a Chipboard Round and sewing thread.
I hope this layout has inspired you today to use Pie Chart Cut File and the Blooming Wild collection! I wish you a beautiful colorful and creative day!
