Pretty Garden layout for PINK PAISLEE

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Hi friends, 
it's Lisa and today I'm sharing my new layout with you. 
Want to make a pretty summer layout, using warm colors? Then you absolutely need to use the new @pinkapislee @paigetaylorevans Truly Grateful collection. The patterned papers have the most amazing colors and color combos. Here, @lisafonseca1985 used an adorable patterned paper with pinks, yellows and oranges, to create the prettiest Summer layout. #lisafonseca #pinkpaislee #layout #scrapbook
The wonderful Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans, has this very adorable patterned paper that has hexagons on it in different tones of pink, yellow and coral. On the hexagons, there are some super cute elements, like animals, suns and patterns. I. just love it! :)
To start, I cut apart all the hexagons and sorted them by color. Then I went through my gelatos and crayons and chose the ones I needed to recreate the same colors as the ones of the hexagons.

For my background, I chose a light pink paper from the collection. I started by dropping some gesso on the page and painting four big, irregular stripes. They would be my base for the colors. Then I mixed my colors to have a mustardy yellow, a light and darker coral and a bright pink. On top of the white stripes, I drew colored ones and then splattered some more of the color on top.

When everything was dry, I started placing my hexagons. I wanted to lay them in a diagonal manner, going from the top left to the bottom right. When everything was as I liked it, I went through all my embellishments and chose everything that would be a good addition.

I used puffy stickers, fussy-cut pieces and ephemera pieces. I thought the cute and fairytale-like colors and embellishments would be a perfect base for a picture I took at Isola Madre in Italy. We sat in a pretty garden and the house in the background looked so cool. I loved that place :) I matted my photo on some vellum and placed it on the layout.

I took a piece of coral patterned paper, hand-cut out the word 'garden' and adhered it to some white paper. As always, I cut out the word, leaving a white border, to make it stand out more. I added the word 'pretty', with the mini foam Thickers from the Pick-me-up collection.

I finished the layout by adding a scribbly border and some black splatters.
I hope you had fun reading through the process and are inspired to use this pretty patterned paper too! :)

Flower cards for PINK PAISLEE

Saturday, September 14, 2019

Hi scrappy people,
I'm back with a new project. I created very fun cards, using Again & Again.
When you’re out of ideas for making cards, just think outside the box. What cuter way to make a card, than in a beautiful flower shape? See how @lisafonseca1985 created these cute cards, using the dreamy new @pinkpaislee collection called Again & Again. #againandagain #cards #pinkpaislee #lisafonseca
Since I've been in the Pink Paislee Design Team, I've created a lot of cards. I like creating basic square or rectangular cards, but most of the time, I prefer making more special, out-of-the-ordinary cards. So this time, I thought I'd make some flower-shaped cards, that you could open in the center. I think they turned out soooo pretty!! :)

To start, I just drew some flowers on some white cardstock and then used the stencil to recreate that shape on my two patterned papers I wanted to use. I used a deep purple one, with pink and white polka dots and a light grey one, with stripes and dots. I then cut them out and adhered them to a white sheet of printing paper. For the center, I used white cardstock, that would make it easier to write a message on it. I pierced holes for the stitching and stitched them using matching threads. Then I cut them out again, leaving a white border.

For the leaves, I did exactly the same, except the stitching. I used a paper straw from my stash for the stem and adhered the flowers and the leaves on it.

At that moment, the inside of the flowers were still white but of course, I wanted them colorful and I also needed another little piece that would make it possible to open the card. So I cut out two circles, that I thought would match, out of patterned papers and I attached them to the center, using a little white strip of paper. That way, you could flip it open and write a message on the inside.

Then I went through the whole collection and chose the embellishments that I wanted to use to decorate a bit. I chose an ephemera piece and a sticker strip (that I cut in three pieces) as my sentiments and also used some other ephemera pieces, stickers and enamel shapes to stick to my flowers.

To finish... as always... I splattered some white paint... ;)
I hope you like them and are inspired to create some of those too!
Thx for being here!!

Hello Sunshine layout for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, September 8, 2019

Hey scrappy friends,
I hope you're all well. I'm back with a new layout. I used Paige's new collection Truly Grateful and I reeeeaaaly love how it turned out! :) I hope you like it too!
Rainbow colored layouts are the prettiest. Especially when they’re created with the amazing new @pinkpaislee @paigetaylorevans Truly Grateful collection. @lisafonseca1985 used a patterned paper with trees, cut them all out and used them as leaves to create a big, happy rainbow tree. #lisafonseca #pinkpaislee #layout #scrapbook
When I got the collection, the patterned paper with all the trees, immediately caught my eye. I knew that I wanted to cut the trees out and to make something with them. After a while, I had the idea to make a big tree, using the small trees without the trunk, so that they'd look like leaves.
Since all the colors of the rainbow are represented in that patterned paper, I thought to make a gradient from pink/red to blue/purple. I imagine that mixing all the colors would've had a great effect too. :)

So to start, I cut out all the trees/leaves. Then I gathered them in different groups according to their colors. I traced a big circle on a white cardstock sheet and then started adhering all the leaves, starting at the top and making my way to the bottom. When I was done, I was amazed by the result... it just looked so cool and fun and magical... :)

For the trunk, I used a dark blue patterned paper and I traced some white details on it. For my picture I used a photo I had made a month before, when I was staying at a hotel in San Gimignano, Italy. They had these hay bales outside and I always wanted to take a picture on one of those ;) I matted it on the same patterned paper I used later, to make a frame for my layout. It's one of my favorite patterned papers. It's a bit like a Tartan (Scottish) pattern with the prettiest colors.

Then I went through all of my stuff to choose embellishments and a title. For the title, I went with an ephemera piece, saying 'Hello'. I added the word 'Sunshine' that was included in the mini alpha puffy stickers.

To decorate my page, I used puffy bird and star stickers and floral ephemera pieces. When I was done decorating, I added some gold splatters and a scribbly line around the layout. This page didn't need a lot more, because the tree was colorful and eye-catchy enough.
