'This was so much fun' layout for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, February 8, 2019

Hi friends, it's Lisa back on the blog today!
A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Pinterest, looking at all sorts of things, when this layout by Paige Evans appeared on my screen.
IMG_5351
I'm sure I'v seen it before of course but in that moment I was so amazed by it, I loved it so much that I saved it on my phone and decided that I would scraplift it.
So here's my version of it...
Scraplifting can be so much fun! There are so many beautiful layouts out there, why not getting inspiration from one of those and creating our own version of it? See how @lisafonseca1985 scraplifted one of @paigetaylorevans‘ layouts using some oft he most colorful @pinkpaislee papers. #lisafonseca #pinkpailsee #scraplifting #scrapbook #paigeevans
Paige used a patterned paper with this ombre stripe pattern. I didn't want to use the same one and of course I wanted some pinks in my background. So I chose 5 different patterned papers, cut them into 2,4x12 strips and adhered them to my 12x12 sheet.
Then I took my white paint marker and splattered some white paint on the whole background.

To write my message/title, I used a lot of papers from the Whimsical collection. First, I cut out rectangles and placed them on the different strips to see in which order I wanted the colors and patters to go. Then I hand-cut the letters out of them and adhered them on the background.

For my pictures, I used a couple I took at Creativation a week before. There's one of me with Paige and the other one shows Missy, Enza, Paige and me. I had such a great time there!!! :)
I matted the photos on some scraps of patterned papers and placed them on the layout.

I used some of Paige's mini foam thickers from the Whimsical collection to write "Creativation 2019" beneath one of the pictures and then I used a whole lot of different embellishments to decorate the page. I took some puffy stickers, some chipboard and cardstock stickers and some ephemera pieces and placed them on or around the letters.
I really love how it turned out! :)

Falala layout for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, February 3, 2019

Hi scrappy friends,
today I'm sharing this fun wintery layout.
One oft he most exciting things in scrapbooking is finding matching patterned papers to create a wonderful color palette. Here @lisafonseca1985 created a wintery color palette using papers from different @pinkpaislee collections. Get some inspiration for your winter layouts with this fun background and cute snowman. #snowman #winter #scrapbooking
Believe it or not, this layout wasn't inspired by the picture... :) Haha... in fact, I made this layout and waited for two weeks to finish it, because I didn't have the right picture to go with it. Then, one day, we had this presentation with our kids from kindergarten and it snowed right that day! YAY! So me and my colleagues saw this snowman and thought it would make the perfect picture. It was only when I got home that I realized that it matched so good with the layout. The snow disappeared the day after and it didn't snow since, so I'd say, heaven knew exactly what I knew to complete this layout! :)

To start, I chose a wintery color palette. I went through all of the Whimsical, Turn the page and Pick-me-up papers and chose the ones I thought would match perfectly for this cool winter layout.
I cut squares that had approximately the same size and started placing them on my white 12x12 sheet of cardstock. When I had all my papers adhered, I die-cut snowflakes, hand-cut some other snowflakes and some letters to write "FaLaLa" and punched out stars. I then placed one item in every square paying attention to place them on a color that would make them stand out. Then I stitched in between and around all the lines, using different threads and stitching styles. What I really like is, that it doesn't look perfect and tidy at all, it makes the whole thing really cute. Finally, I splattered some white paint all over it.

I then created this fun snowman by paper-piecing him together using different patterned papers. I hand-stitched around the snowman with matching threads and cut him out leaving a white border. I placed him on my fun background and started embellishing.

Snowflake kisses layout for PINK PAISLEE

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Hi dear friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog to share this layout with you.
January is the perfect month to create layouts where you can still include some Christmas atmosphere without making it a Christmas layout. See how @lisafonseca1985 made this cute winter layout using stars and a snowy town. With the beautiful colors from the #Whimsical collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee it’s so easy to make it fun and bright. #winter #snow #scrapbooking
I wanted to scrap some pictures I had taken last year and still had laying around in my scrap room. I took the pictures in the snow, so I wanted a snowy layout :)
To start, I chose two cutfiles from Paige Evans I found in the Silhouette store (281821 and 282821). It's a winter town scene and a snowflake star. I cut the scene out of white paper and backed it with different patternd papers from the Whimsical collection. For the stars, I cut them out of different patterned papers, then I adhered them on another piece of paper and I hand-cut them out, leaving a border, so that every star would have two colors.

I also used a pink glitter paper from my stash to back the parts of the houses covered in snow and to punch out a few little stars that I adhered to the middle of every star snowflake.
When I had all of my pieces, I placed them on my white 12x12 white cardstock in a way I liked and looked balanced to me.
I wanted the stars to peak out behind the clouds or cover some of them, so I hand-cut out some clouds and I stitched around them with white thread. I also placed them on my layout. When everything was how I wanted, I started adhering everything down, using liquid glue for some items and foam squares for others, creating dimension.

I backed my three little pictures on some pieces of patterned paper and adhered them on the layout too.

For my title, I looked for a cute snowflake quote on Pinterest. I found this one that says: "Snowflakes are kisses from heaven". I wrote the word "kisses" on one of my favorite patterned papers from the Whimsical collection and then I cut it out. I placed it on another piece of paper and cut it out again. For the rest of the quote, I used the mini foam thickers from the Whimsical collection.
I love how it turned out! :)
To finish the layout, I stitched some french knots on the page to create tiny snowflakes. I also embellished some more, using rub-ons, stickers and ephemera from the Wild Child collection.

Winter cards for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, January 4, 2019

Hey lovely friends,
today I'm sharing two cards I made using mostly the Whimsical collection by Paige Evans.
Snowflakes and snowmen with cute faces? Yes, please! @lisafonseca1985 loves creating her own cuties by paper-piecing them together with different patterned papers and hand-stitching them to create texture. See how she used this technique with @pinkpaislee collections, to create some very unique winter cards. #winter #snow #scrapbooking

When my assignment is to make cards, I always want to find special and fun ways to make them. I really like traditional cards too, but when I have to make them myself, I prefer making non-traditional ones.
So this time, I wanted to make something winter related. I love the frosty colors you can use in winter projects. So I chose some patterned papers from the Whimsical collection and one or two papers from the Summer Lights collection to create the perfect color palette for these cards.

For this first card, I punched a lot of stars and arranged them in a way to create a snowflake. I planned on using more colors but then decided to stick with blue, pink and yellow. I then adhered them to a white sheet of paper and hand-stitched through the middle of every branch. I cut the snowflake out leaving a white border, placed it on a bright blue patterned paper and cut it out again. I repeated this by placing the snowflake on a white piece of paper again, to create the back part of the card.

I created a cute face to place in the middle of the snowflake and embellished it with a little flower sticker. For the sentiment, I used the Whimsical mini foam thickers and wrote "For You" on one of the branches.
This card doesn't open traditionally, where you flip the front up. Here, you slide the front part to the side. I attached the two pieces with a glittery star brad (not from Pink Paislee) which lets you slide the front part to see what's written in the inside of the card. Here I used a "Thank you sticker and a star chipboard sticker.

For this next card I hand cut out letters, from the patterned papers I had chosen previously, to write "Winter", and a snowman out of white paper. I didn't want to paper-piece the snowman in this project, I wanted it to stay white and only get the colors from the thread I would be using. I adhered the letters to a white sheet of paper, stitched around the letters and also stitched the snowman, using colorful threads. The I placed the snowman behind the word, the little hands, on the word and the whole thing on a blue patterned paper. I then cut it out leaving a border and repeated the same process as on the first card.

I used the mini foam thickers to write "Greetings" on "Winter", to make it say "Winter Greetings" and embellished some more with flower stickers from the Whimsical sticker book. When you open the card, you can see the sentiment. Here I found a cute quote on Pinterest and I wrote it using the letter stickers from the sticker book. And oops... I just saw now that I missed a word in the quote... ;) Well, you get the point, right?
So, I really hope you got inspired by those cute cards and want to make some too! :)
See you soon,

Whimsical mood layout for PINK PAISLEE

Thursday, December 27, 2018

Hi scrappy friends, today I'm sharing one of my favorite layouts I ever made for Pink Paislee. When I look at it, it makes me so happy... ;)
Those very tiny and so cute 2x2 paper pads from the @paigetaylorevans @pinkapaislee collections are just perfect for grid designs. And since those kind of designs are @lisafonseca1985’s favorite, she had to scraplift herself and use them on this layout to create a very colorful grid design. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #griddesign
When I sat at my desk to start a new layout, I had no idea what was going ti happen. Usually I have an idea or a cutfile I want to use, but here, I had nothing at all. So I just sat down and went through all the Whimsical stuff hoping that something would catch my eye and give me a fun idea. And it did...
I decided to use the 2x2 paper pads in a grid design. It's not really a new idea, so in some way, I scraplifted myself in this layout, because I already made a layout like this with the Turn the Page collection and the Pick-me-up collection.
IMG_8068Image 3
But this time, I wanted to create a rainbow design with the colors of the papers. So first, I went through the 2x2 paper pads and chose all the ones I thought I could use. I arranged them on my desk to see how many squares of what colors were missing. Then I went through my patterned papers and cut little squares from different colors.
When I had my 25 squares arranged and ready, I distressed all the edges with my scissors. Then I chose 2 squares of each row and sewed the borders on half of them and some zig-zags on the other half.

And since those kind of designs are @lisafonseca1985’s favorite, she had to scraplift herself and use them on this layout to create a very colorful grid design. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #griddesign
Then I adhered all the squares, using thick foam squares to make all of them pop off the page. Of course, I had to have my border around the page and for that I used the hexagon paper.

I fussy-cut a bunch of flowers from the beautiful floral paper, used some ephemera florals and also some stickers and created flower clusters on each row, matching the colors. I also added a matching cloud to every row, some hearts and word stickers.
When I started the layout and had all my squares stuck down, I really wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but at this point, I was like: Oh, yes!!! :)

The final touch that made me REALLY love the layout was the title. I didn't want to use the chipboard thickers from the collection because I thought they would break the structured style of this layout and the mini foam thickers were too small on their own. So I decided to hand-cut my own letters to write a title. I couldn't adhere them to the squares as is though, because they wouldn't have popped out the page. So I attached them to some white scrap of paper first and cut out around them, leaving a white border. Then I placed my title below the picture. Some white splatters later, I was done! :)

Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey friends, 

today I have a very special blog post for you, as I am participating in the 

Altenew A YEAR IN REVIEW Blog Hop!! :)



Many super talented artists have joined with Altenew to show you their favorite 2018 projects. I'm so excited I was asked to join and present to you my four favorite layouts I made, using Altenew dies and stamps. Make sure to read to the end to get the details on how you can participate in the giveaway!! :)


So here we go:



I made this layout for the Pink Paislee Design Team. I used the Rose Flurries dies set.


I used the dies to make these wonderful little roses and leaves. I used patterned papers to make them and I think it turned out really cute and whimsical.


Then I have this layout, I made for the Altenew October release. 

With the Floral Elements dies, you can create three different abstract flowers, some leaves and some other small elements. I used this set to create my flowers and leaves and scattered them all over my page, making little clusters. I really love how you can totally customize your embellishments and make as many as you want to. 


Then I have this layout, I created for Altenew. Here I used the Playful Blooms stamps and dies duo. First you stamp the flowers in the colors that you like, then you have matching dies to make the cutting easier and faster. 


I made this mexican-inspired layout, creating a lot of stamped flowers, die-cutting them and building a frame all around the page.



Finally, I want to share this layout, 


Here I used the Brilliant Baubles stamps and dies. They are used in the same way as the flowers in the project above, where you first stamp and layer the colors and then die-cut the shapes with the matching dies.




I created a Christmas layout, making some colorful baubles and hanging them on the reindeer's antlers.

I hope I could inspire you with my layouts and show you some ways how you can use the amazing Altenew stamps and dies :)
