Rolled Flowers Layout by Audrey Mutschall


Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Hello friends! Audrey Mutschall here with a new layout featuring Blooming Wild and lots and lots of flowers! I’ve used Paige's Rolled Flowers and a Layered Flower to create this bright and vibrant page.
The inspiration for this layout came from floral striped Paper 23. I hadn’t used this paper yet and I thought it would look really pretty with Rolled Flowers in matching colors. I cut the paper in half on the diagonal and pierced holes along the border of each stripe. I back-stitched along each stripe with coordinating colors of embroidery floss. With that complete, I glued the patterned paper to a piece of white cardstock and splattered watercolors over it to finish the background. Next came the fun part - cutting out and rolling flowers! I selected patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad to coordinate with each of the stripes in Paper 23. I cut out flowers, rolled them up, and hot-glued them to prevent them from unraveling. I thought they’d stand out more if they were placed onto white petals, so I used Paige’s Layered Flower cut file to cut a whole bunch of flowers in different sizes from white cardstock. I doubled these up and glued the rolled flowers on top. I arranged the flowers onto the stripes, overlapping and staggering them to align with matching colors. I tucked my photo underneath the flowers and then glued them down. My photo is embellished with a piece of plaid Paper 24 and a Journaling Card, a Chipboard Sticker, and a sticker tag from the 8-Page Sticker Book. Lastly, I added fussy cut butterflies from Paper 16 in a few places - I just love those butterflies so much, I use them on almost every layout I make!
I hope this inspires you to try making Rolled Flowers! They are so simple to make and they turn out really pretty. In fact, once you start making them, you won’t want to stop!

Bend Up Flower Petals Layout by Ashley Neu


Hello scrappy friends! It’s Ashley Neu here for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team to share my next layout featuring the Bend Up Flower Petals Cut File paired with the Blooming Wild collection.
To begin, I cut the cut file from Paper 24 and then bent up the petals one by one. I adhered this paper onto a piece of pink cardstock. I printed 5 photos at 1.75” square leaving a thin white border. I tucked each photo slightly underneath some petals, grouping 2 photos on the bottom left side of the flower. This is where I wanted the main focus to be of the layout. I grabbed the Sticker Book and found the “beautiful” sticker to use as the title. I anchored the title with a sentiment from the Cardstock Stickers. To build up a cluster by these two photos, I added in some florals from the Cardstock Stickers as well as the Mini Flower Puffy Stickers. Next to each of the other 3 photos, I kept the embellishing similar to the other two photos by adding in florals and sentiment stickers. To finish off each photo cluster, I used some Pops of Color in White.
I love the dimension this layout has because of the amazing Bend Up Flower Petals Cut File! I hope you have found some inspiration in this layout. Thank you for stopping by Paige’s blog today!

Spring is in the Air Layout by Sophie Delorme


Hello friends! It's Sophie Delorme here with you today! I'm excited to share my first layout for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! I used the Spring is in the Air from the 20 Spring Cut Files paired with the beautiful Blooming Wild collection.
I decided to create a watercolor background behind the cut file. I hand stitched the letters of "SPRING" with white thread and added foam adhesive behind the patterned paper letters to make them stand out more. I also backed the flowers with matching papers from the collection. I used a black and white photo to create a soft look and not compete with the colorful title.
I hope that you like it and that you're inspired to check out the Spring is in the Air from the 20 Spring Cut Files along with the beautiful Blooming Wild collection! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring Layout by Monique Lowe


Thursday, April 11, 2024

Hi creative friends! Monique Lowe here sharing my first layout for the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! My page includes a large Spring Title from the 20 Spring Cut Files as well as the Daisy Halves Cut File. I’ve brought them to life using the Blooming Wild collection and hints of Bloom Street.
I wanted to create something colorful and filled with springtime joy to document our DIY garden renovation from a few years ago. First, I cut both designs from white cardstock then backed the title with a rainbow of patterned papers. To help the cut files pop I added chain stitching in coordinating colors to some of the text, as well as doodled lines using a black fine tip pen. For the background, I blended a variety of Distress Oxides to match my title then dabbed the background with water to create a faux watercolor effect. I backed my photos with torn vellum and matching patterned papers. To embellish, I fussy cut butterflies from Paper 16. Finally, I tucked in a few stamped tabs from the Sticker Book, added some sparkly gems, a few confetti flowers, and French knots to the cut file daisies.
This page fills me with joy! I hope you feel inspired to get creative documenting your Spring memories with the 20 Spring Cut Files and Blooming Wild too! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring is in the Air Layout by Inessa Persekian


Wednesday, April 10, 2024

Hi friends, this is Inessa Persekian (paperandbling on social media!) sharing my first project as part of the Paige Evans Cut File Design Team! I used her Blooming Wild collection and Spring is in the Air from the 20 Spring Cut Files!
I’m all about spring and looking forward to warmer weather. For now I can reminisce with this layout. I love looking back at photos of when my kiddos were younger. This layout comes together pretty quickly. I backed the Spring is in the Air from the 20 Spring Cut Files with a variety of patterned papers from Blooming Wild and accented the flowers with flower ephemera for extra oomph.
I hope you are inspired to pick up the Blooming Wild collection and Spring is in the Air from the 20 Spring Cut Files! Have a fabulous day and see you next time!

Floral Wreath Layout by Danielle Miller


Hi friends! Danielle Miller here today sharing my first design team layout! This is a bright and cheery spring layout made with Paige's Splendid collection and Flower Wreath Cut File!
I started by matting my two photos on white cardstock. I then perused the Splendid collection for papers that brought out the colors in my photos. This was quite easy as the Splendid collection and these photos of my daughter match so well. I chose a paper from the Project Pad as my background paper. I then took the 6x8 Paper Pad and chose multiple options from there to back the cut file. When it was time to embellish I looked to all the embellishments for some complementary colors to add to the flowers. I love to find elements that can add dimension to the cut file. The title is from a mix of the Epoxy Stickers and the Mini Foam Thickers. I also added Cardstock Stickers and some gorgeous ephemera from both the Floral Die Cuts and Ephemera Die Cuts. I hope you are inspired to play with Paige's Splendid collection and her Flower Wreath Cut File!

Floral Globe Layout by Yui Oku


Hi everyone! Yui Oku here today with a new layout using Paige's Floral Globe Cut File along with Blooming Wild!
To make this layout, first I cut the Floral Globe from white cardstock and then spent time backing all the flowers and leaves. After backing the little pieces I backed the round globe part with vellum and then floral Paper 7. I added my photo on top and then embellished with lots more flowers from the Floral Die Cuts and. Ephemera Die Cuts. I embellished with bits and pieces from the Cardstock StickersSticker Book, and Chipboard Stickers.
It took a time to back the small parts in the globe, but worth it! I hope you are inspired to play with the Blooming Wild collection and Paige's Birdhouse from the 20 Spring Cut Files!

Rain Boots Layout by Valerie Bisson


Hi friends! Valerie Bisson here and I’m so happy to share my next cut file design team layout with you featuring Paige's Rain Boots from the 19 Spring Cut Files and her beautiful Blooming Wild collection.
Springtime school photos is what I am documenting in my fun rainbow layout today. I decided to go with the Rain Boots Cut File to accent along side my 4 x 6 inch photo which I matted in pale pink cardstock and the rainbow burst paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. The larger mat on the photo helps make it stand out. Next I cut the Rain Boots from white cardstock and then backed it with patterned papers from Blooming Wild. I made an offset layer of the cut file using Paper 19 to create definition between the cut file and the background Paper 6. For some subtle detail I added soft ink blending and sprinkles on the background with Distress Oxides. I embellished the layout with labels from Paper 13, pieces from the Puffy Phrase Stickers, Sticker Book, Floral Die Cuts, and Chipboard Stickers. Fussy cut butterflies from Paper 16 sprinkled around the page and enamel dots from my stash add along with a little white acrylic paint splattered in three areas on the page finish up this layout!
I enjoyed making this page and love how it turned out. I hope you are inspired to create with the 19 Spring Cut Files and the Blooming Wild collection!
