STAY MAGICAL layout for Pink and Paper

Monday, April 2, 2018

Hey friends, 
here's a super fun and dreamy layout I made for Pink and Paper.

So I wanted to use those cute mermaids and unicorns and all that whimsical stuff included in the kit. I thought that I would create a page full of clouds where all the cuties could sit on.

I started by drawing some clouds on a white sheet of paper. I made it so that they would layer in a beautiful way. Then I stitched around them, using pastel rainbow colors, starting with pink, then orange, yellow, green an blue

Then I placed them on a white page. I took some color sprays in matching colors and made splatters on the clouds.

I chose a bunch of cute ephemera pieces and stickers and tucked them behind the clouds in a way that it didn't seem to overloaded.

I chose a colorful patterned paper to matte my picture and placed the picture in the middle of the layout. I used the Oh-my-god-so-gorgeous-thickers from the collection and wrote 'Stay magical' above and under the picture.

...and the layout was done!

HOORAY layout for Pink Paislee

Hi guys, 
I’m back with a colorful layout with Confetti Wishes from Pink Paislee! I was so excited to use this line, it’s too cute. I really love the vibe going on in this collection.

Since there is a lot of birthday related stuff in this collection, I made something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time: a birthday cake make out of patterned papers. To start off, I chose 3 papers. I cut them in different sized strips and pasted them on a pink sheet of paper. Out of the beautiful floral paper from the 6×6 paper pad, I drew a cake stand, cut it out, and placed it under the cake. Then I chose thread that matched the colors of the different tiers and hand stitched all around. For the stand, I used gold thread, it’s so pretty! I cut out the cake and stuck it on one of the beautiful confetti papers. Then I trimmed the edges and placed the whole thing on another confetti paper so that I had a thick border all around the page.

Then I did some fussy cutting. I cut out flowers and leaves from different papers, the numbers 3 and 2 and the word ‘Hooray’. I thought that the ‘Hooray’ word was so cute and I wanted to use it as a cake topper.
To embellish the cake a little more, I used some washi strips, chipboard stickers, and candle puffy stickers. I really love how the cake turned out!

To finish, I matted my picture on some pieces of patterned paper and placed a frame from the ephemera pack on top. Then I used some little washi pieces and placed them on the top left and bottom right of the page, topping them off with a chipboard word sticker and flower puffy sticker.

LITTLE YOU layout for InTheScrap

Hey friends,

here's a layout I made for the In The Scrap blog.

Since last month's challenge was fussy cutting, I wanted to stay in the theme and make another layout where I would fussy cut tons of stuff. I dug in my stash and found some very cute things from Crate Paper and Pebbles. 

To start off, I drew a bear head on a white sheet of paper, resembling the yellow one from Crate Paper. I cut it out from different papers, pieced it together and stitched around it with metallic thread. 

Then, from different patterned papers from Crate Paper, I fussy cut tons of little embellishments. Flowers, critters, clouds, some scalloped borders and the word LOVE. 

As a background paper, I chose one from Pinkfresh Studio, which had some different paint strokes and splatters on it.

I took all the embellishments and placed them on the sheet in a way I liked.
Then I also stitched around some of the clouds. 

When I was done. I glued or taped everything down.
I used some of the little flowers to create a wreath around the bear's head.
The picture I chose is one from my new little cat. We got her in September and she's so cute :) I matted the picture on some pieces of patterned papers and taped it on the page. 

As a title I chose gold glitter thickers and wrote "Little you".

Then I added some gold splatters and the layout was finished :)

I really like how this turned out. Even though I always make something different, this is my favorite style.

HAPPY HEART layout for the Hip Kit Club

Hi guys! 

Today I'm sharing this layout I made for the Hip Kit Club.

I’ve just got my march kits and they are gorgeous. When I looked through everything, I really wanted to make a whimsical and summery page including fireflies and butterflies… I had the idea to make them fly out of a mason jar… so I did. Here’s what I came up with…

I used a black patterned paper, included in the main and paper kits, to make it seem like a night scene.
To start, I drew a mason jar on a white sheet of paper. I hand-stitched around it, cut it out and backed it with vellum, included in the cardstock kit.
Then I cut out a bunch of flowers and leaves out of Maggie Holmes and Dear Lizzy patterned  papers. I placed them all around the mason jar and also on the opposite corner.

To create the illusion that the fireflies, that I cut out of the one-canoe-two rub-on sheets, where glowing, I used the Vicky Boutin glitter glaze and created little circles with my finger.
I then rubbed the fireflies right on the circles.

I backed my picture with some exclusive project life cards and placed it in between the jar and flowers.
I also absolutely wanted to use those super cute layered butterflies from one-canoe-two, that I placed on my page as if they were flying out of the jar and around the page.
I used some other embellishments that I thought would finish off the layout and wrote my title with some white thickers and gold alpha stickers. 

I really like how this turned out.
