'Favorite Bro' layout

Sunday, June 30, 2019

Hey scrappy people, it's Lisa back on the blog today!
For this project I wanted to use a cutfile from Paige that I thought was really cute and would make a perfect big embellishment. Here's what I came up with:
Turn a cutfile into a huge embellishment that will act like a great statement piece on your page. @lisafonseca1985 used a tree cutfile by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee, decorating it with Paige’s collection Horizon. She put it on a blue background to make it stand out and eye-catching. #pinkpaislee #layout #lisafonseca #paigeevans #cutfile #horizon
When I started, I didn't know if I wanted to cut out the tree from white paper and place it on a colored background or cut it from colored paper and place it on a white background. I opted for a white cutfile. When the tree was cut out, I placed it on different patterned papers from the Horizon collection to see what would be the prettiest. I opted for this blue background because it reminded me of a tree standing in front of a night sky.

There are four different kinds of flowers on the tree. I wanted to use a different technique to decorate, for every kind, instead of just backing all the flowers.
The flower with a lot of petals, I backed normally, using dark pink and light pink patterned paper.
The flower with six petals, I backed, using scalloped circles, I punched out of a baby blue patterned paper.

I have this tiny five petal flower punch that looks exactly like the five petal one on the tree (just smaller). So I punched out some of those in all the rainbow colors and placed them on top of the cutfile flowers.
For the last type of flower, I created mini rolled flowers with one of Paige's cutfiles. I then adhered them on top of the cutfile, using my glue gun.
I also placed sequins in the middle of all the flowers, except the 3D ones.

Before adhering the tree to the background, I splattered the whole page with white acrylic paint.
Since, there was already a lot going on on the layout, I didn't want to back the photo with too many layers, like I always do. So I jut matted it with one paper, creating a frame. As a title, I used a cardstock sticker saying 'favorite' and then used some Thickers to write the word 'Bro' underneath. I only have one brother, haha... :) but I couldn't come up with a better title! :)

I embellished just a little bit on this page, since it was already full. I placed an ephemera flower and a chipboard flower underneath the picture, two stickers on the bottom of the page and some white punched stars all around the "sky".

I really hope you like it and are inspired to use these cutfiles!

Butterfly cards for PINK PAISLEE

Saturday, June 22, 2019

Hey scrappy friends,
it's Lisa back here and today I'm sharing two cute cards I made. These cards can be used for every occasion, you just need to use the right sentiments to make them fit the purpose.

This month has been crazy and I didn't have as much time as usual to craft. So I needed to make some cute  but quick cards. I decided to go with those adorable butterfly cutfiles by Paige. (8293129 and 292639)
I cut them out on square pieces of white cardstock.

For the one with the blue frame, I backed all of the butterflies, using yellow, light pink, dark pink, light blue and dark blue patterned papers. Then I chose this blue patterned paper to adhere it to as my card base. I cut it slightly wider than the white square, so that it would create a frame.
I stitched through the middle of all of the butterflies and made french knots to create the butterflies' heads.

I finished it by adding a puffy word sticker and gold splatters.

For the more pastel card, I didn't back the butterflies one by one. Instead, I used my favorite patterned paper from the collection, the one with all the painted color spots and strokes. I created a card bas with that paper and adhered my butterfly cutfile on top. With that paper behind the butterflies, all the butterflies have a different color without any extra work! :)

On this card, I stitched through five butterflies, using different colors.
Then I added a puffy word sticker and some gold splatters and I was done!
Thanks for being here and see you soon!

Bahamas mini album for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, June 16, 2019

Hey friends,
today I'm sharing my new mini album, I made using the new Indigo & Ivy collection. The collection is so soft and pretty, I really like it!
So when I got it a few weeks ago, I thought I'd immediately use it to create a mini album.
Discover the new @pinkpaislee collection #Indigoandivy in @lisafonseca1985 new mini album. She used the wonderful soft collection for her very cute project to document her latest vacation. The soft and beautiful colors, watercolored elements and gold alphas will make every project look perfect. #pinkpaislee #minialbum #lisafonseca #cutfile
As a base for the album, I wanted something different to the usual rectangular shape (which I really love too though :) ). I decided to go through Paige's cutfiles and chose this half flower cutfile (284817) (I very slightly changed it). I cut it out two times normally and then cut it out 12 more times, but only the outlines.
I backed the two pieces that would make the cover and back, with different papers from the collection. I used the colors in a rainbow order, so going from pink to blue. I then stitched around the borders with green thread. I also stitched together the other pieces two by two, making six pages.

I punched holes on the sides of every page and then combined them all using metal rings that I had spray painted before.
To complete the cover, I added the word 'Bahamas' using the foam Thickers from the collection and I also added an ephemera butterfly and stitched though it.

I also wanted to create a cute hanging tassel for my album... of course... :)
So I made some paper beads and made a long tassel, adding pearls and a pompom.

The inside of the album, I decorated with pictures I took on the Bahamas (obviously :) and using a lot of the beautiful embellishments from the collection. Stickers, ephemera, enamel shapes, gold alphas, patterned papers...
Here are all of the pages:
