Grateful layout for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, November 15, 2019

Hey friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog and today I'm sharing my very last Halloween layout for this year.
The pretty fall colors of the Truly Grateful collection from @pinkpaislee @paigetaylorevans are perfect to document your pretty Halloween pictures. @lisafonseca1985 added them to a witch legs cutfile and it's a perfect match. #pinkpaislee #halloween #paigeevans #lisafonseca #trulygrateful #layout #scrapbook
The inspiration for this layout came from this amazingly cool cutfile from Paige Evans. I always wanted to use witch legs on a layout, so I was really stoked when I saw this one in the cutfile store. :) I wanted to use it with black paper and back it with many wonderful colors from the Truly Grateful collection.

To start I chose all the papers I wanted to use. Of course I wanted a Halloween color scheme, so I chose purple, green, orange and pink patterned papers. For the shoes, I immediately knew that I wanted to use the speciality paper, it was just perfect for witches shoes. I backed the whole cutfile with the papers from the collection and also added some solid colored paper from the Horizon project pad. To finish off the shoes, I added some enamel dots from my stash.

In fact, the layout, as you see it right now, is not at all how it looked when I first was done with it... ;) I put it aside for days and every time I looked at it, I didn't like it. So after a week or so, I decided to take the shoes and picture off the page and start new. I my first version, I created some mixed media on the background. I used green, purple and orange gelatos and smooshed them over the white paper with a baby wipe. Then I stitched some swirls around both legs and finally added some gold stars. You can see it on this (bad quality) photo. :)

So when I decided not to use this layout, I still wanted to keep the swirls. I cut them out of the paper and was able to use them again. So on my new layout, I went without the mixed media background. I started by adhering the legs to the white paper, slightly different than on the first layout. This way, I had more space to place the photo. I also added a frame around the layout, like I do most of the time.

I matted the photo on gold and purple paper and adhered it to the layout using foam tape. The photo is from one year ago, when I was at Disneyland for Halloween with two friends and it was just perfect for this layout. Then I added the swirls I had cut out. I have to say that I was really happy with the fact that the swirls had a paper frame around (because I cut them out). I think it looks even better than before.

Then I had the idea to make the legs look as if they were coming out of the ground full of flowers. So I started adding a ton of flowers on the bottom of the layout and also added some on top of the shoes. As a title, I didn't really know what to use. So I went through the epoxy word stickers and used the word 'Grateful'.

At the end, I added some wood buttons, some epoxy and paper star stickers and some gold splatters.
I really hope you like it :)

Splendid Friends - HIP KIT CLUB

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Hey friends,

today I'm sharing a very fun and colorful fall wreath I created with an exclusive October HKC cutfile😃
I chose the leaves cutfile because I love making wreaths. I cut the leaves out of different colors of cardstock from the Cardstock Kit. Then I slightly changed the cutfile, so that I would only have the contoures of the leaves. This way I could back my leaves very fast without having to hand-cut everything. I used different patterned papers to back the leaves. What I love about the colors is that they are very bold and saturated and I also love having some brown, which, let's be honest, we almost never use on our layouts... 😄
I added the title, some enamel dots and some exclusive embellishments and I was done! 

Let me know if you like it, see you soon! 
😘


Better together for THE CUT SHOPPE

Tuesday, November 12, 2019


Hey scrappy friends,

today I'm sharing a new layout I made using a beautiful new cutfile. It's called FALL FLOWERS and is available on the CutShoppe website.


I cut it out of orange cardstock and to back it, I used yellow cardstock. I let my Silhouette machine cut out the yellow backing piece, which I had created by selecting only the contours of the flowers. That way, it was faster and I didn't need to hand-cut it.



As you can see on the photo, when I adhered the pieces to my white cardstock, I placed the orange piece slightly higher than the yellow piece, which makes the contours of the yellow piece peek our and I think this gives a very cool look. For the centers of the flowers, I used a scalloped circle punch and punched them out of different bright pink patterned papers.


Then I placed an embellishemnent in each of the centers. I used gems, buttons and brads. I really like the look that it gives and I adore the pink, yellow and orange colors together. Of course, I also needed to frame my layout... I used a cardstock sheet with the same color as the bright pink flower centers.


I matted my photo on some scraps of paper and added it to the layout. I wanted to bring some mint color in and also to do a bit of mixed media but I loved the layout so much so far and I was scared to ruin it... :) So I used some clear stickers from my stash which had splatters and splotches in different colors. I used some of those behind my photo and also on the sides of the layout. 


Then I added my title. I used gold chipboard stickers saying: "Better Together". I also added this cute little pink cat from the latest Dear Lizzy collection.


To add more mint color, I cut out some simple leaves and adhered them next to some flowers. Then I added some clear bee stickers and black splatters and I was done.

Thank you so much for stopping by, see you soon! :)

Fall cards - HIP KIT CLUB

Monday, November 11, 2019

Hi friends, 

today I'm sharing three cards I made using the October kits. 😃
The assignment was to get out our punches and also add some stitching details. I had only received a new flower punch and was excited to try it out. I created flowers for the three cards, switching between colored and white ones.
I adhered the white ones to a pretty colored patterned paper and for the colored flowers, I used papers with less colors and patterns, to make them stand out more. I used a lot of the exclsuive HKC vellum and acetate flowers which I LOVE!! I want to add them to everything... haha! I added some hand-stitching details to some of the vellum leaves, which looks pretty cool!
I really hope you like them and and inspired to create flowers too! 😘🥰☺️
Thanks, Lisa
P.S. Have you seen the cute fox head which fits perfectly on the fall sweater die-cut?? So cute 😁





Globe mini album for PINK PAISLEE

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Hey scrappy people,
it's Lisa today and I'm very excited to share my new mini album with you. :) I used Paige's new collection Truly Grateful.
There’s nothing more beautiful to enjoy your time, than to travel the world. @lisafonseca1985 documents her latest trip to Provence, France in this adorable globe mini album, she created with the amazing Truly Grateful collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee and an exclusive Paige Evans cutfile. @pinkpaislee. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca #lminialbum #scrapbooking
In August, I went to Provence, France with two of my girlfriends. It was so beautiful and fun and I really loved the atmosphere and vibes everywhere we visited. We took a lot of pictures and I wanted to create a pretty mini album to document this beautiful trip.
I often want to make different kinds of mini albums and this time, I wanted to make one using a cutfile. I went through Paige Evans' cutfiles and saw this pretty globe. I thought that it would make the perfect base for a mini album.

I cut out the cutfile as is, using a pink patterned paper for the circle and a brown piece of patterned paper for the foot. Then I also cut it out in white, using only the outlines. That part would serve as a base. I also cut out 5 white circles, as big as the circle of the globe and 10 patterned paper circles, where I reduced the size of the main circle, by 1 cm. I wanted to use two of the patterned paper circles on each side of one white circle. The fact that the white circles were bigger, created a frame, which, you must know... I love! :)

I started by decorating the cover. I used the cutfile, backed it with a light pink patterned paper and decorated with fussy cut flowers, leaves and sequins. I made three layered flowers that I topped off with a big pearl. The sequins, I attached by making french knots with different colors of thread. For the title, I used the Truly Grateful Thickers.

I also wanted to decorate the handle of the globe. I used the pink sequins and adhered them all over it. I think it turned out so pretty and sparkly, I really love it! :)

Since I cut out 10 patterned paper circles, my album would have 10 pages. I laid them all in front of me on my desk and thought about how I would decorate them. I wanted to use a lot of fussy cut pieces as well as stitching. After I had my ideas, I gathered all the pieces I needed, adhered them to my pages and then used my stitching machine to add stitching details in different ways, to every page. I also hand-stitched on two of the pages. After the stitching, I splattered white paint on all of the pages and let them dry.
I then added photos to all of my pages, matting them on patterned papers. I finished by decorating them with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces and wood buttons.
To add even more interest, I made a shaker pocket with a heart in the middle.
Let's take a look at the pages...

Colorful cards for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, October 18, 2019

Hey lovely friends,
I'm back with two new super cute and colorful cards.
Cutfiles are not just amazing to make layouts… they make great and quick cards too. Check out these cards by @lisafonseca1985 she created using Truly Grateful @pinkpaislee and some @paigetaylorevans cutfiles. They are perfect for any occasion. #cards #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca
This time, I created my cards using word cutfiles as a base. I chose two cutfiles from Paige Evans which I think are just perfect for cards.
To start, I used white cardstock with the cutfiles. Then I traced the letters on different patterned papers and cut out all of the letters. I used two different techniques to back my cutfiles.

I backed the cutfile that says "Hooray" in a traditional way, then I adhered it to my card base with foam squares to create dimension.

For the second cutfile, I adhered the patterned paper letters on the card base first, using foam squares, and then I put the cutfile on top. Since, I didn't use the cutfile as a guide to adhere the letters straight, some parts of the letters peak out off the sides and there are also some holes, where the letters don't back the whole part of the cutfile. I hope you understand what I mean... :) I really love that technique, it looks a little bit more messy and interesting. What I did on this card too, is using the colors in rainbow order... of course... ;)

As a base for both of my cards, I used patterned paper, cut 6x6 pieces and adhered them on white cardstock, leaving a border. I stitched around the whole thing twice to give it a cool touch.

To embellish my cards, I used puffy stickers, ephemera, fussy-cut bits, puffy letters and cardstock stickers.

Isola Madre layout for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, October 6, 2019

Hi friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog and today I'm sharing a new layout I created using the amazing and colorful Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans.
@lisafonseca1985 loves creating cute critters and adorable faces… here she created a sweet little cup holding a cactus… what a fun idea to document your summer photos. See how lovely she used the Truly Grateful collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca #layout #scrapbooking
When I went to Lago Maggiore, Italy, in July, me and my girlfriends took a trip to Isola Madre, Isola Bella and Isola del Pescatore. The three mini islands are one of the most pretty places I've ever been. Of course, we took tons and tons of photos and one of them is the one I used on this layout. I wanted a dreamy and floral layout for this picture. I started by choosing a cutfile and I found this digital stamp/clipart on Etsy. The lines were a lot too thin to use it as a cutfile, it would've ripped all the time and it would've been impossible to put glue on the lines. So what I did instead, is using the inner pieces as guides to create the pieces for my design.

If you look closely on the picture, you can see that the white parts are not the cutfile, but they are the white sheet of paper, I used to glue all the pieces down. So, for the face, for example, I took the piece that my silhouette cut out, I traced it on some peachy patterned paper, I cut it out and adhered it to the sheet of paper. I did this for all the pieces, leaving some tiny space between each piece, to complete the whole design and to give the illusion of a backed cutfile. This is a great way or trick to use cutfiles, digital stamps or clip art where the lines are just too thin to use them as is.

When I had my main little cutie all done, I did a bit of mixed media on a white 12x12 sheet of cardstock. I put some gesso on it first to ensure that the color would not seep into the paper right away and then I had some fun making some pink and peachy splotches of color. When everything was dry, I splattered some gold color shine on the page.

I placed my cup on the layout, matted my picture with some scraps of patterned paper and adhered it next to the cactus cup. I then fussy cut some leaves and used some pieces of ephemera as embellishments. I also used some heart wood veneers.

For my title, I used the beautiful and fun stickers from Truly Grateful and wrote the name of the island, Isola Madre (which means Mother Island). I think it looks so good and fun with all the colors, especially because the blue of the picture is the same as the blue patterned papers. :)

I also did my Missy Whidden at the end, and nestled some pink thread in three places. :) I finished the embellishing with some puffy dots and I was done.

Pretty Garden layout for PINK PAISLEE

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Hi friends, 
it's Lisa and today I'm sharing my new layout with you. 
Want to make a pretty summer layout, using warm colors? Then you absolutely need to use the new @pinkapislee @paigetaylorevans Truly Grateful collection. The patterned papers have the most amazing colors and color combos. Here, @lisafonseca1985 used an adorable patterned paper with pinks, yellows and oranges, to create the prettiest Summer layout. #lisafonseca #pinkpaislee #layout #scrapbook
The wonderful Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans, has this very adorable patterned paper that has hexagons on it in different tones of pink, yellow and coral. On the hexagons, there are some super cute elements, like animals, suns and patterns. I. just love it! :)
To start, I cut apart all the hexagons and sorted them by color. Then I went through my gelatos and crayons and chose the ones I needed to recreate the same colors as the ones of the hexagons.

For my background, I chose a light pink paper from the collection. I started by dropping some gesso on the page and painting four big, irregular stripes. They would be my base for the colors. Then I mixed my colors to have a mustardy yellow, a light and darker coral and a bright pink. On top of the white stripes, I drew colored ones and then splattered some more of the color on top.

When everything was dry, I started placing my hexagons. I wanted to lay them in a diagonal manner, going from the top left to the bottom right. When everything was as I liked it, I went through all my embellishments and chose everything that would be a good addition.

I used puffy stickers, fussy-cut pieces and ephemera pieces. I thought the cute and fairytale-like colors and embellishments would be a perfect base for a picture I took at Isola Madre in Italy. We sat in a pretty garden and the house in the background looked so cool. I loved that place :) I matted my photo on some vellum and placed it on the layout.

I took a piece of coral patterned paper, hand-cut out the word 'garden' and adhered it to some white paper. As always, I cut out the word, leaving a white border, to make it stand out more. I added the word 'pretty', with the mini foam Thickers from the Pick-me-up collection.

I hope you had fun reading through the process and are inspired to use this pretty patterned paper too! :)

Flower cards for PINK PAISLEE

Saturday, September 14, 2019

Hi scrappy people,
I'm back with a new project. I created very fun cards, using Again & Again.
When you’re out of ideas for making cards, just think outside the box. What cuter way to make a card, than in a beautiful flower shape? See how @lisafonseca1985 created these cute cards, using the dreamy new @pinkpaislee collection called Again & Again. #againandagain #cards #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca
Since I've been in the Pink Paislee Design Team, I've created a lot of cards. I like creating basic square or rectangular cards, but most of the time, I prefer making more special, out-of-the-ordinary cards. So this time, I thought I'd make some flower-shaped cards, that you could open in the center. I think they turned out soooo pretty!! :)

See how @lisafonseca1985 created these cute cards, using the dreamy new @pinkpaislee collection called Again & Again. #againandagain #cards #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca
To start, I just drew some flowers on some white cardstock and then used the stencil to recreate that shape on my two patterned papers I wanted to use. I used a deep purple one, with pink and white polka dots and a light grey one, with stripes and dots. I then cut them out and adhered them to a white sheet of printing paper. For the center, I used white cardstock, that would make it easier to write a message on it. I pierced holes for the stitching and stitched them using matching threads. Then I cut them out again, leaving a white border.

For the leaves, I did exactly the same, except the stitching. I used a paper straw from my stash for the stem and adhered the flowers and the leaves on it.

At that moment, the inside of the flowers were still white but of course, I wanted them colorful and I also needed another little piece that would make it possible to open the card. So I cut out two circles, that I thought would match, out of patterned papers and I attached them to the center, using a little white strip of paper. That way, you could flip it open and write a message on the inside.

Then I went through the whole collection and chose the embellishments that I wanted to use to decorate a bit. I chose an ephemera piece and a sticker strip (that I cut in three pieces) as my sentiments and also used some other ephemera pieces, stickers and enamel shapes to stick to my flowers.

To finish... as always... I splattered some white paint... ;)
I hope you like them and are inspired to create some of those too!
