Choose happiness and love layout for Pink Paislee

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Hi lovely friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog today to share a very yellow layout with you... :)

I absolutely wanted to make a layout using the 3D flowers from Paige Evans. I don't really know anymore why I chose to make them all yellow... but I did. I chose papers from different Paige Evans collections and from the Summer Lights collection. I let my silhouette cut everything out and then I started rolling... (are you thinking of the Limp Bizkit song too right now??? :) hahaaa...)
As a background, I thought that they would really pop in front of a pink paper. So I chose one from the Pick-me-up collection. I used it twice. One as a background and one to cut out all those circles behind the flowers.

Then I placed the circles on the patterned paper, using a different color in each line. On top of the circles, I placed the flowers, alternating the shapes and sizes.

I matted my picture on different patterned papers from the Pick-me-up collection and placed it in between all the flowers.

Then I embellished around it, using chipboard stickers from Pick-me-up, that I also used to embellish on the page and as a part for my title. For the other part of the title, I used thickers.
To finish the page, I splattered some white paint on it!
I really hope you like it:)

Confetti Wishes cards fro PINK PAISLEE

Friday, July 13, 2018

Hi dear people,
It's Lisa and I'm back on the blog with two cute cards I made with the Confetti Wishes collection.

The main focus on these cards, are the paper weaved pieces. To start, I cut a lot of 1cm paper strips from almost all of the papers from the collection. Then I weaved them together, creating this cool and colorful design. I adhered the whole thing to a white sheet of paper, so that it would't fall apart when I cut it.
For the first, square shaped card, I cut a heart out of a 6x6 piece of the weaved design. Then I placed some white paper in the heart shaped hole and I stitched around the heart with a link chain stitch, using three shades of pink to create an ombre effect.

I used two rolled flowers that I had left from a previous project and some of the chipboard and cardstock stickers to embellish the card. I used a beautiful and big gold and aqua foam thicker saying 'Hooray' to stick in the middle of the card and added some gold splatters.

For the second card, I cut out three small hearts out of the weaved design. I stitched around them using pink, green and gray thread.

Then I placed them on a rectangular piece of patterned paper that I adhered on another patterned paper using sticky foam.

To embellish, I used some chipboard and puffy stickers and some dots from the foam thickers sheets.

Those cards are perfect for every occasion... birthdays, congratulation wishes, thank you's... I hope you'll try this technique and chain link stitching, it turns out so good every time! :)
Thank you so much for being here, see you soon!

Sketch friday layout for the HIP KIT CLUB

Sunday, July 8, 2018

Hi friends,

I'm back with a layout I made for sketch friday.
Here's the sketch  Corrie Jones made.

And here's the layout I came up with.

To start, I cut strips from different patterned papers from the main kit and paper kit.
Then I arranged them on the right side of my pink cardstock (cardstock kit), also adding some of the Pretty Little Studio tags (enbellishment kit).  When everything was how I liked it, I adhered it to the paper and added some strips from the Pretty Little Studio washi stickers (main kit).

I absolutely wanted to use this gorgeous flower stamp from Vivki Boutin (color kit). So I stamped a few big, medium and small flowers on a white piece of paper, cut them out and added them to my layout, using foam squares to make them stand out. I placed enamel dots (project life kit) in the centers of almost every flower.

I also used some Pinkfresh Studio enamel shapes (main kit) and gold puffy hearts (embellishment kit) to make everything even more pretty :)

I used a picture from my last birthday which I celebrated two weeks ago. I matted it on a project life card and placed it next to my big embellishment cluster.
I created a tiny cluster on the left side of the picture, doing the same steps as before.
As a title, I used some puffy word stickers from Pinkfresh studio (project life kit) and some blue Pinkfresh Studio alphabet stickers (main kit).

To finish, I placed some Pretty Little Studio die cuts on my page and splattered some pink and black ink.

Thank you for stopping by :)

Eté indien layout for IN THE SCRAP

Friday, July 6, 2018

Hi there friends, it's Lisa back on the blog today.
I'm sharing a super cute pastel layout, I made using the Cocoa Vanilla Endless summer collection.

I really love how it turned out, here it is...

To start this page, I chose a cutfile from Paige Evans. But I didn't use the cutfile in the traditional kind of way. I only used it as a guide to create my mosaic heart. I cut 1cm strips from all of the papers from the collection. Then I cut 1x1cm squares. I adhered the squares on a white sheet of paper, following the cutfile as a guide.

When I was done, placing all of the squares, I cut out the heart, leaving a white border. Then I stitched along some of the lines, using gold thread. 

I placed my heart on the wood grain patterned paper from the collection.

I did a bit of mixed media around the heart. Then I backed my picture on some scraps of paper I had left and placed it on the layout. 

To embellish, I used the ephemera and stickers included in this collection. I also used a Heidi Swapp paper stencil with flowers. I loved the big flowers on the stencil, so I cut them out, backed them with patterned paper and used them as embellishments too.

For my title, I used the alpha stickers from the collection, placed them on white paper and cut them out, leaving a white boarder, to make them stand out from the background. I adhered them using foam squares.

I hope you like the layout, make sure to watch the process video on YouTube 

Thank you so much
