Marvelous layout for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, August 18, 2019

Hey friends, 
today I'm sharing my new favorite layout... :) I used five different Pink Paislee collections for this...
 Image 45 
For this layout I wanted to create something using a few collections and rainbow colors. So to start I chose a cutfile that would be easy to use with a lot of different patterned papers. I used one from Paige Evans (295939). Then I went to choose all of the papers. I went through Confetti Wishes, Turn the Page, Pick me up, Whimsical and Horizon and chose colors in a rainbow pattern.

I backed all the pieces of the cutfile and then hand-stitched around every piece, using matching thread. I think it gives the circle a more finished and pretty look. Then I chose all the embellishments I wanted to use from the five collections. I wanted to decorate mostly with flowers but also chose some other pieces. I also picked three elements from the very new Paige Evans collection, Truly Grateful.

I placed all of the elements on the different colors the way I liked and then I punched out some white stars and placed them on the layout too. When I had everything the way I wanted, I started adhering everything down. I used liquid glue but also foam squares to create dimension.

As I always like to do, I cut off 1/4 inch of each side of the paper and adhered it to another patterned paper to frame my layout. Then I went through my gelatos and chose the ones that matched my colors on the layout. For every piece of the circle, I made some splatters in the same color. My first idea was to do this with punched stars. I punched all the stars from the same papers that I had used to back the cutfile. I didn't like how it turned out though, it seemed to overloaded to me. But I still wanted something that went off into the borders of the paper in an ombre kind of way. So then I chose to do that with splatters and I really like how it turned out.

For my picture, I used one I took last year my one of my friends. I thought black and white would look good on this layout. I matted it on some white cardstock and placed it on the layout. At first, I placed it in the middle... obviously... but I really didn't like it that much. I like the spot I placed it later much better, don't ask me why... :)

I hope you like how it turned out. See you soon :)

I'm talking about the new book binding tool to create Coptic books. :) I used it for the first time to make my new mini album and I really love it.

So, the moment I got this cool tool, I immediately wanted to try it. I made my first coptic book a few months ago and I was excited to make another one. With this tool, the hole piercing and stitching is MUCH more easy, I really can tell the difference.
To start I gathered all the patterned papers from the Horizon by Paige Evans collection, I wanted to use. I cut them to size, making bigger and smaller pages. I also cut out a few pieces using cutfiles from Paige Evans, that I wanted to add to my album. For my cover, I wanted to use another brand new tool, the Foil Quill, with which you can add foil details to your pages, using your die-cutting machine. (heart-eyes... )

So I foil-quilled a bunch of hearts, using another cutfile from Paige, onto a sheet of acetate. I cut out two rectangles to make a cover and a back for my book.
When I had all of my pieces and pages ready, I started to pierce the holes.

You just have to open your signature in the middle, lay it on the tool, secure it with the pink piece on top and you have your guide to pierce your holes. That way, no need for measuring, all the holes will be exactly in the same places on all the pages.
I then followed the instructions to bind the pages together.

What I love about coptic books, is that you can add a bunch of cute embellishments and pearls to the side of your book. :) I used some charms from Horizon, some sequins from Indigo & Ivy, some pearls from my stash and some older pieces from Pick-me-up. I love that umbrella button...

For my cover, I created a rosette with a pretty gold-foiled patterned paper from the Horizon Project Pad, added some tulle behind it and some ephemera pieces on top with foam squares, to create dimension. I also added some ephemera pieces around the rosette and added the title, using the Thickers from the Horizon collection.
For the inside of the mini, I decorated until I reached the middle and using pictures from January until now. The rest of the album will be decorated with the rest of the best memories from 2019. Here are a few of the pages inside the mini album.

I decorated using ephemera pieces, washi tape, stickers, cardboard stickers, sequins, tags and also some mini foam thickers from the Whimsical and Auburn Lane collections. I love those mini alphas to write small titles on each page.
To see more details and a few more pages, you can watch the process video on my YouTube channel.
I really love how this mini album turned out and I highly recommend using this amazing new tool, if you plan on making a coptic book.
Thank you for being here and see you soon.

Always You layout for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, July 12, 2019

Hi friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog to share a new Indigo & Ivy layout.
The new Indigo&Ivy collection from @pinkpaislee is perfect to scrap your romantic vacation pictures. The colors are the softest and perfect to make love heart layouts. See what @lisafonseca1985 came up with to document her latest Paris pictures. #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca #indigoandivy
A few years ago, I made a layout where I made hearts using to halves of patterned paper. I wanted to make something similar again, using the beautiful new collection. So to start, I chose the patterned papers I wanted to use and added two papers from the Turn the Page collection by Paige Evans. I added those, to give the layout a different kind of color scheme and have a pop of bright coral.
I traced hearts onto every paper using a self-made template, then cut the template a bit smaller and traced a second heart on every paper. I cut them all out and cut them into two halves. Then I decided how I would mix and match them, using four different patterned papers for every heart. I adhered them together with a drop of glue and then I also adhered them to some white cardstock to have a third layer behind the big heart. I cut around, leaving a border and then went through my sewing machine, adding gold stitching details to my hearts.

To give them dimension, I put foam squares behind every halves of all the hearts. I added embellishments, like stickers and ephemera in the middle of each heart.

As a background, I used one of the very light pinkish patterned papers from the collection, cut off about 1/2 inch of two sides and adhered it on a yellow/brownish patterned paper to create a frame... like I do most of the time! :)
I then arranged all my hearts on my page and adhered them to it.

For my picture, I used one of me and my boyfriend when we were in Paris a few weeks ago. I matted it on two patterned papers and placed it on the layout, arranging it between the hearts. I added a gold tag.

As a title, I used one of the gold die cut words from the collection saying "always" and then added some thickers to write "you". I LOVE the combination of the gold and navy blue and the different fonts!! :)
The finishing touches were some enamel hearts, some pink splatters and a scribbly border in navy blue.

'Favorite Bro' layout

Sunday, June 30, 2019

Hey scrappy people, it's Lisa back on the blog today!
For this project I wanted to use a cutfile from Paige that I thought was really cute and would make a perfect big embellishment. Here's what I came up with:
Turn a cutfile into a huge embellishment that will act like a great statement piece on your page. @lisafonseca1985 used a tree cutfile by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee, decorating it with Paige’s collection Horizon. She put it on a blue background to make it stand out and eye-catching. #pinkpaislee #layout #lisafonseca #paigeevans #cutfile #horizon
When I started, I didn't know if I wanted to cut out the tree from white paper and place it on a colored background or cut it from colored paper and place it on a white background. I opted for a white cutfile. When the tree was cut out, I placed it on different patterned papers from the Horizon collection to see what would be the prettiest. I opted for this blue background because it reminded me of a tree standing in front of a night sky.

She put it on a blue background to make it stand out and eye-catching. #pinkpaislee #layout #lisafonseca #paigeevans #cutfile #horizon
There are four different kinds of flowers on the tree. I wanted to use a different technique to decorate, for every kind, instead of just backing all the flowers.
The flower with a lot of petals, I backed normally, using dark pink and light pink patterned paper.
The flower with six petals, I backed, using scalloped circles, I punched out of a baby blue patterned paper.

I have this tiny five petal flower punch that looks exactly like the five petal one on the tree (just smaller). So I punched out some of those in all the rainbow colors and placed them on top of the cutfile flowers.
For the last type of flower, I created mini rolled flowers with one of Paige's cutfiles. I then adhered them on top of the cutfile, using my glue gun.
I also placed sequins in the middle of all the flowers, except the 3D ones.

Before adhering the tree to the background, I splattered the whole page with white acrylic paint.
Since, there was already a lot going on on the layout, I didn't want to back the photo with too many layers, like I always do. So I jut matted it with one paper, creating a frame. As a title, I used a cardstock sticker saying 'favorite' and then used some Thickers to write the word 'Bro' underneath. I only have one brother, haha... :) but I couldn't come up with a better title! :)

I embellished just a little bit on this page, since it was already full. I placed an ephemera flower and a chipboard flower underneath the picture, two stickers on the bottom of the page and some white punched stars all around the "sky".

Butterfly cards for PINK PAISLEE

Saturday, June 22, 2019

Hey scrappy friends,
it's Lisa back here and today I'm sharing two cute cards I made. These cards can be used for every occasion, you just need to use the right sentiments to make them fit the purpose. 
Create some fast and super cute cards for every occasion using the butterfly cutfiles by @paigetaylorevans and embellish with the wonderful @pinkpaislee collections! @lisafonseca1985 made two adorable cards in pastel colors with cute little stitched details. #pinkpaislee #cards #lisafonseca #paigeevans #butterfly #cutfile
This month has been crazy and I didn't have as much time as usual to craft. So I needed to make some cute  but quick cards. I decided to go with those adorable butterfly cutfiles by Paige. (8293129 and 292639)
I cut them out on square pieces of white cardstock.

For the one with the blue frame, I backed all of the butterflies, using yellow, light pink, dark pink, light blue and dark blue patterned papers. Then I chose this blue patterned paper to adhere it to as my card base. I cut it slightly wider than the white square, so that it would create a frame.
I stitched through the middle of all of the butterflies and made french knots to create the butterflies' heads.

I finished it by adding a puffy word sticker and gold splatters.

For the more pastel card, I didn't back the butterflies one by one. Instead, I used my favorite patterned paper from the collection, the one with all the painted color spots and strokes. I created a card bas with that paper and adhered my butterfly cutfile on top. With that paper behind the butterflies, all the butterflies have a different color without any extra work! :)

Bahamas mini album for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, June 16, 2019

Hey friends,
today I'm sharing my new mini album, I made using the new Indigo & Ivy collection. The collection is so soft and pretty, I really like it!
So when I got it a few weeks ago, I thought I'd immediately use it to create a mini album.
Discover the new @pinkpaislee collection #Indigoandivy in @lisafonseca1985 new mini album. She used the wonderful soft collection for her very cute project to document her latest vacation. The soft and beautiful colors, watercolored elements and gold alphas will make every project look perfect. #pinkpaislee #minialbum #lisafonseca #cutfile
As a base for the album, I wanted something different to the usual rectangular shape (which I really love too though :) ). I decided to go through Paige's cutfiles and chose this half flower cutfile (284817) (I very slightly changed it). I cut it out two times normally and then cut it out 12 more times, but only the outlines.
I backed the two pieces that would make the cover and back, with different papers from the collection. I used the colors in a rainbow order, so going from pink to blue. I then stitched around the borders with green thread. I also stitched together the other pieces two by two, making six pages.

I punched holes on the sides of every page and then combined them all using metal rings that I had spray painted before.
To complete the cover, I added the word 'Bahamas' using the foam Thickers from the collection and I also added an ephemera butterfly and stitched though it.

I also wanted to create a cute hanging tassel for my album... of course... :)
So I made some paper beads and made a long tassel, adding pearls and a pompom.

Hey scrappy people,
I'm back on the blog and today I'm sharing two cards.
It’s almost summer and the craving for delicious ice cream is sneaking up on us. What better way to wish someone a great summer than by sending them the cutest ice cream cards? See how @lisafonseca1985 made hers, using the beautiful and cheery #horizon collection by @paigetaylorevans. #layout #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #summer #icecream #pinkpaislee
Since it's almost summer and the weather is starting to get better and better (at least in the Nothern hemisphere ;), I'm really in the mood to create things that have a summery feel to them. My assignment was to make cards and I remembered I had seen those adorable ice cream cones with multiple ice cream balls on top on Pinterest. So I chose to make two cards with ice cream/popsicles.

Since I always like to make two different, but matching cards, I chose to make one with an ice cream and one with popsicles.
I went through the silhoutte store and chose some cutfiles that I thought were really cute. I cut out the different pieces from vibrant and summery patterned papers. Then I adhered them to white paper and stitched all around the shapes with gold thread to give them a chic touch. I cut them out, leaving a white border.

The popsicles had faces, so I also gave the cherry on top of the ice cream a cute little face and I added white accents everywhere that I thought looked cool. I adhered all of the cuties on a piece of patterned paper using crafty foam to make them pop up. Then I adhered the piece on another piece of patterned paper that was shaped like a card.

Coptic book mini album using Boxed Cards

Friday, May 17, 2019

Hey friends,
it's Lisa here today and I'm sharing with you my very first coptic book inspired by Paige Evans.
Mini albums are the perfect way to document your favorite pictures from vacation or a trip. You can make your mini albums as big as you’d like and insert a lot of photos. @lisafonseca1985 created a coptic book mini album, using the boxed cards from the #confettiwishes collection by @pinkpaislee and super cute embellishments from @paigetaylorevans collections. #minialbum #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #copticbook
Since I saw Paige's first coptic book a few years ago, I wanted to make one. I even asked my dad to cut me tons of wood pieces for the cover and the back, but they're still in a box, untouched... ;) Hahaaa... Too much to do, not enough hours in a day...
So when I got the Boxed Cards from the Confetti Wishes collection, I asked myself what I could create with it, except use them as normal cards.

You can make your mini albums as big as you’d like and insert a lot of photos. @lisafonseca1985 created a coptic book mini album, using the boxed cards from the #confettiwishes collection by @pinkpaislee and super cute embellishments from @paigetaylorevans collections. #minialbum #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #copticbook
That's when the idea came, to create a mini album in a coptic book style.

So I took one card of each style, 10 in total, for the inside pages. For the cover and the back, I used some thick cardboard and used patterned papers that I wrapped around the pieces.

Then I attached everything together, watching Paige's video tutorial step by step. HERE's the link to her Etsy shop, where you can buy the class to make a coptic book.
What's really cool when you make a coptic book, is that you can use all sorts of cute embellishments to add to the side of the book. I added mini tassels, heart charms and sequins.

In the inside of the mini album, I stitched the cards together on the side and bottom, to create a pocket at the top. I created mini envelopes with my envelope maker, cutting off, the flaps to close them. Then I decorated each of the envelopes. I also attached an eyelet and a piece of ribbon, so that you can easily pull out the envelopes when they are inserted into the pockets.

I inserted one envelope in every second pocket from the mini album.

I didn't decorate the inside too much because I don't have pictures yet too go into my mini album and I plan to decorate the rest when I add my photos. I only used this cutfile by Paige (288398), backed it with vellum and adhered it to one of the pages.
I also decorated the first page of the album by adhering flowers from the Horizon ephemera pack and a chipboard sticker, using foam squares to add dimension.

For the cover, I used a flower cutfile by Paige (288406). I cut out the different layers out of patterned papers from the Horizon collection, creating a rainbow look. On the last layer of the flower, I added a rolled flower (241018) and then a pearl in the center of that one. I think it looks so cool and fun with all the layers and colors.
