Hey scrappy people,
I'm back on the blog and today I'm sharing two cards.
It’s almost summer and the craving for delicious ice cream is sneaking up on us. What better way to wish someone a great summer than by sending them the cutest ice cream cards? See how @lisafonseca1985 made hers, using the beautiful and cheery #horizon collection by @paigetaylorevans. #layout #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #summer #icecream #pinkpaislee
Since it's almost summer and the weather is starting to get better and better (at least in the Nothern hemisphere ;), I'm really in the mood to create things that have a summery feel to them. My assignment was to make cards and I remembered I had seen those adorable ice cream cones with multiple ice cream balls on top on Pinterest. So I chose to make two cards with ice cream/popsicles.

Since I always like to make two different, but matching cards, I chose to make one with an ice cream and one with popsicles.
I went through the silhoutte store and chose some cutfiles that I thought were really cute. I cut out the different pieces from vibrant and summery patterned papers. Then I adhered them to white paper and stitched all around the shapes with gold thread to give them a chic touch. I cut them out, leaving a white border.

The popsicles had faces, so I also gave the cherry on top of the ice cream a cute little face and I added white accents everywhere that I thought looked cool. I adhered all of the cuties on a piece of patterned paper using crafty foam to make them pop up. Then I adhered the piece on another piece of patterned paper that was shaped like a card.

To finish I added some sentiment strips and some hearts from the puffy stickers sheet an I splattered some white and black paint.

I really love how those turned out and they make me so excited for summer :)

Coptic book mini album using Boxed Cards

Friday, May 17, 2019

Hey friends,
it's Lisa here today and I'm sharing with you my very first coptic book inspired by Paige Evans.
Mini albums are the perfect way to document your favorite pictures from vacation or a trip. You can make your mini albums as big as you’d like and insert a lot of photos. @lisafonseca1985 created a coptic book mini album, using the boxed cards from the #confettiwishes collection by @pinkpaislee and super cute embellishments from @paigetaylorevans collections. #minialbum #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #copticbook
Since I saw Paige's first coptic book a few years ago, I wanted to make one. I even asked my dad to cut me tons of wood pieces for the cover and the back, but they're still in a box, untouched... ;) Hahaaa... Too much to do, not enough hours in a day...
So when I got the Boxed Cards from the Confetti Wishes collection, I asked myself what I could create with it, except use them as normal cards.

That's when the idea came, to create a mini album in a coptic book style.

So I took one card of each style, 10 in total, for the inside pages. For the cover and the back, I used some thick cardboard and used patterned papers that I wrapped around the pieces.

Then I attached everything together, watching Paige's video tutorial step by step. HERE's the link to her Etsy shop, where you can buy the class to make a coptic book.
What's really cool when you make a coptic book, is that you can use all sorts of cute embellishments to add to the side of the book. I added mini tassels, heart charms and sequins.

In the inside of the mini album, I stitched the cards together on the side and bottom, to create a pocket at the top. I created mini envelopes with my envelope maker, cutting off, the flaps to close them. Then I decorated each of the envelopes. I also attached an eyelet and a piece of ribbon, so that you can easily pull out the envelopes when they are inserted into the pockets.

I inserted one envelope in every second pocket from the mini album.

I didn't decorate the inside too much because I don't have pictures yet too go into my mini album and I plan to decorate the rest when I add my photos. I only used this cutfile by Paige (288398), backed it with vellum and adhered it to one of the pages.
I also decorated the first page of the album by adhering flowers from the Horizon ephemera pack and a chipboard sticker, using foam squares to add dimension.

For the cover, I used a flower cutfile by Paige (288406). I cut out the different layers out of patterned papers from the Horizon collection, creating a rainbow look. On the last layer of the flower, I added a rolled flower (241018) and then a pearl in the center of that one. I think it looks so cool and fun with all the layers and colors.

Glowing smiles layout for Pink Paislee

Friday, May 3, 2019

Hi guys,
it's Lisa back on the blog and today I'm sharing a layout that I'm really excited about... because it's sooo pretty and I'm really proud of it:)
Image 112
I really could look at it all day... the colors make my heart so happy! :)
When I sat down to make this layout, I had absolutely no idea where I was going to go with it... Normally, I already have a little idea what I want to make or if I want to use a cutfile or make a paper-pieced cutie. Here I just sat down and started looking at the new products I just had gotten from Pink Paislee, which were the project paper pad and the 2x2 paper pads. I decided to make something with the project pad... I looked at the photo on the cover and saw a layout by Paige where she had cut out shapes out of this beautiful patterned paper.

I then knew I wanted to create something with it too. My first idea was to make a tree, where the shapes would be leaves falling off the branches. But then I thought it would be cool to regroup all the pieces from the same color families and make flowers of different colors. So I went with that idea. I wanted to make six flowers and I needed 12 petals for each flower, so I had to cut into a second sheet of that same paper to have enough petals.
For the middle part of the flower, I created some 3D flowers using a Paige Evans cutfile (267510).
Flowers, flowers and more flowers. You can’t go wrong when creating huge colorful flowers on a layout. This is an easy game when you get to chose from all the beautiful patterned papers from the @horizon collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee. @lisafonseca1985 created some fantastic flowers using paper number 12 for the petals and some 3D cutfiles to create some dimension. #lisafonseca #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #horizon
When I had all my flowers done, I looked for a background paper... which really didn't take very long, because I already had one in mind... probably one of my top 3 papers from the collection. I love the colors and the style of that paper... just perfect!

Since I wanted to lay all my flowers on that paper and they already had a lot of color, I took some gesso and made similar swatches of white in some places of the sheet to tone it down a bit.

As almost always, I cut off the edges of the paper, adhered it to a second patterned paper to create a border and then stitched around it.

I matted my picture on some scraps of paper. I always do that to frame my pictures and really love it.
When I had my picture and my flowers ready, I started placing everything on my paper. I loved how it looked, the flowers are such a statement piece. I thought that they needed some leaves though. So I hand-cut some out of a green patterned paper and drew some white details on it. I arranged them around the flowers the way I liked it.

I added some embellishments around the photo, ephemera and chipboard flowers. I could use those on every layout :)
As my title, I used some gold alpha stickers from the project paper pad and some tiny foam Thickers from the Pick-me-up collection.

I added some splatter of gold color shine and I was done! I really hope you like it as much as I do!
Thank you so much for being here! :)
