Purrretty cute layout for Pink Paislee

Sunday, April 21, 2019

Hi scrappy people, I'm back on the blog sharing this purrrfectly cute layout...
Do you have some cute photos of your pets but don’t have any ideas how to scrap them? @lisafonseca1985 scrapped a photo of her cat, using a leopard pattern cutfile from @paigetaylorevans and creating a super cute little cat by paper-piecing and hand-stitching, using the cutest @pinkpaislee collection, Little Adventurer. #littleadventurer #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca #12x12layout
The idea to make this layout came when I saw a new cutfile by Paige Evans. It's a leopard pattern cutfile. I love animal patterns and I thought it would be so cute to document a photo of my cat.

So to start, I put the cutfile in my silhouette program, ungrouped the different parts and deleted some in the middle and on the sides. Then I let my Silhouette cut it out of a white 12x12 sheet. I chose some papers that I wanted to use to back the spots of the cut-out pattern. I wanted to go primarily with the Little Adventurer collection but also wanted to add some other colors. I thought the Turn the Page collection would be a great match. So I chose 8 papers from the two collections, cut 6x2 pieces, placed them on my cutting mat and let the machine cut all the pieces to fill the spots. (I cut those out slightly bigger than the other spots, so that I could put some glue around them and adhere them to the main paper). Then I backed the whole thing.

When I was done, I cut off the borders of my white sheet of paper, placed it on another patterned paper and stitched around with mint thread.
Then I started creating my paper-pieced cat. As always, I cut out the different parts out of different patterned papers, put everything together adhering it to a teal paper, stitching some parts and cutting around it leaving a border.

I matted my photo on some scraps of paper to create a colorful frame.
When I placed the cat and the photo on the layout, I was a little bit lost at first though... I didn't really know how and where to place them... nothing seemed right to me... It took me some time to figure out the exact placement of the two elements. But I had to add something else to make it really work. I still a sheet of this beautiful flower patterned paper left from the turn the Page collection. They were the perfect colors to add to the layout. I cut some out and started placing them around the page.

With those added, it started coming together. For my title, I used the Thickers from Little Adventurer and the speciality sheet from the same collection. That speciality paper a has gold glitter alpha on it. The letters are perfect to cut out. and so pretty.
I found a funny quote on Pinterest and wrote that on my page using the different letters.

I also added some glitter stars from the ephemera pack and some cardstock stickers on my page. Then I made some splatters using teal Color Shine.

Happy Summer layout for Pink Paislee

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Hey scrappy friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog and today I'm sharing a super cute and very colorful layout.
Sunny days are the happiest days!!! @lisafonseca1985 created the cutest and happiest sun with the wonderful and colorful @pinkpaislee @paigetaylorevans collection #horizon. She paper-pieced it and then added some hand-stitching. The flowers ephemera from the collection adds de most perfect final touch to any project. #pinkapaislee #paigeevans #lisafonseca
For this layout, I wanted to make something very "summery", using bright colors to highlight some beautiful papers from the new Paige Evans Horizon collection. I had seen this cute sun on an image on Pinterest and I thought I'd try to make one for this layout. So to start, I chose a yellow paper. I cut out a big circle and adhered it to a piece of white paper. Then I added some sun rays, a mouth and cheeks using blue and pink patterned papers,  When I had everything adhered down, I stitched some parts of the sun to add some texture.

I cut it out, leaving a white border. I love doing that, I think it always gives a more finished look. Then I looked through my pictures to chose a picture. I found one from my last vacation in Italy. The flowers on the photo have exactly the same color as the deep pinkish purple in the collection.

I matted my photo on some scraps of paper, as I always do.
I took a white 12x12 sheet of paper, cut off the edges and placed it on two different patterned papers, a lime green one and an orange one. I love having borders on my layouts... ;) Then I stitched around it white this same deep pink/purple color.

I adhered the sun and the photo on my white sheet and started embellishing. I used a lot of flowers from the collection. Some ephemera, some chipboard stickers and some cardstock stickers. I also used a flowers paperclip.

For my title, I used the collection's Thickers and one of the chipboard stickers. I placed everything on some patterned and white paper and cut around it, leaving a border. Then I adhered my title to the layout.
I also used a little heart ounch, punched out hearts in rainbow colors and placed them all around the sun. This adds a cute little touch I think.
What I also really enjoy doing at the moment, is adding white little details all around the layout. It adds more interest to the page and the different elements. :)
