Globe mini album for PINK PAISLEE

Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Hey scrappy people,
it's Lisa today and I'm very excited to share my new mini album with you. :) I used Paige's new collection Truly Grateful.
There’s nothing more beautiful to enjoy your time, than to travel the world. @lisafonseca1985 documents her latest trip to Provence, France in this adorable globe mini album, she created with the amazing Truly Grateful collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee and an exclusive Paige Evans cutfile. @pinkpaislee. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca #lminialbum #scrapbooking
In August, I went to Provence, France with two of my girlfriends. It was so beautiful and fun and I really loved the atmosphere and vibes everywhere we visited. We took a lot of pictures and I wanted to create a pretty mini album to document this beautiful trip.
I often want to make different kinds of mini albums and this time, I wanted to make one using a cutfile. I went through Paige Evans' cutfiles and saw this pretty globe. I thought that it would make the perfect base for a mini album.

I cut out the cutfile as is, using a pink patterned paper for the circle and a brown piece of patterned paper for the foot. Then I also cut it out in white, using only the outlines. That part would serve as a base. I also cut out 5 white circles, as big as the circle of the globe and 10 patterned paper circles, where I reduced the size of the main circle, by 1 cm. I wanted to use two of the patterned paper circles on each side of one white circle. The fact that the white circles were bigger, created a frame, which, you must know... I love! :)

I started by decorating the cover. I used the cutfile, backed it with a light pink patterned paper and decorated with fussy cut flowers, leaves and sequins. I made three layered flowers that I topped off with a big pearl. The sequins, I attached by making french knots with different colors of thread. For the title, I used the Truly Grateful Thickers.

I also wanted to decorate the handle of the globe. I used the pink sequins and adhered them all over it. I think it turned out so pretty and sparkly, I really love it! :)

Since I cut out 10 patterned paper circles, my album would have 10 pages. I laid them all in front of me on my desk and thought about how I would decorate them. I wanted to use a lot of fussy cut pieces as well as stitching. After I had my ideas, I gathered all the pieces I needed, adhered them to my pages and then used my stitching machine to add stitching details in different ways, to every page. I also hand-stitched on two of the pages. After the stitching, I splattered white paint on all of the pages and let them dry.
I then added photos to all of my pages, matting them on patterned papers. I finished by decorating them with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces and wood buttons.
To add even more interest, I made a shaker pocket with a heart in the middle.
Let's take a look at the pages...

Of course, I need some "jewelry" for my album... :) I created some paper beads and tulle tassels and made them hang off my album.
I really hope you like how it turned out.
Let me know... see you soon!

Colorful cards for PINK PAISLEE

Friday, October 18, 2019

Hey lovely friends,
I'm back with two new super cute and colorful cards.
Cutfiles are not just amazing to make layouts… they make great and quick cards too. Check out these cards by @lisafonseca1985 she created using Truly Grateful @pinkpaislee and some @paigetaylorevans cutfiles. They are perfect for any occasion. #cards #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca
This time, I created my cards using word cutfiles as a base. I chose two cutfiles from Paige Evans which I think are just perfect for cards.
To start, I used white cardstock with the cutfiles. Then I traced the letters on different patterned papers and cut out all of the letters. I used two different techniques to back my cutfiles.

I backed the cutfile that says "Hooray" in a traditional way, then I adhered it to my card base with foam squares to create dimension.

For the second cutfile, I adhered the patterned paper letters on the card base first, using foam squares, and then I put the cutfile on top. Since, I didn't use the cutfile as a guide to adhere the letters straight, some parts of the letters peak out off the sides and there are also some holes, where the letters don't back the whole part of the cutfile. I hope you understand what I mean... :) I really love that technique, it looks a little bit more messy and interesting. What I did on this card too, is using the colors in rainbow order... of course... ;)

As a base for both of my cards, I used patterned paper, cut 6x6 pieces and adhered them on white cardstock, leaving a border. I stitched around the whole thing twice to give it a cool touch.

To embellish my cards, I used puffy stickers, ephemera, fussy-cut bits, puffy letters and cardstock stickers.

Isola Madre layout for PINK PAISLEE

Sunday, October 6, 2019

Hi friends,
it's Lisa back on the blog and today I'm sharing a new layout I created using the amazing and colorful Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans.
@lisafonseca1985 loves creating cute critters and adorable faces… here she created a sweet little cup holding a cactus… what a fun idea to document your summer photos. See how lovely she used the Truly Grateful collection by @paigetaylorevans @pinkpaislee. #pinkpaislee #paigeevans #trulygrateful #lisafonseca #layout #scrapbooking
When I went to Lago Maggiore, Italy, in July, me and my girlfriends took a trip to Isola Madre, Isola Bella and Isola del Pescatore. The three mini islands are one of the most pretty places I've ever been. Of course, we took tons and tons of photos and one of them is the one I used on this layout. I wanted a dreamy and floral layout for this picture. I started by choosing a cutfile and I found this digital stamp/clipart on Etsy. The lines were a lot too thin to use it as a cutfile, it would've ripped all the time and it would've been impossible to put glue on the lines. So what I did instead, is using the inner pieces as guides to create the pieces for my design.

If you look closely on the picture, you can see that the white parts are not the cutfile, but they are the white sheet of paper, I used to glue all the pieces down. So, for the face, for example, I took the piece that my silhouette cut out, I traced it on some peachy patterned paper, I cut it out and adhered it to the sheet of paper. I did this for all the pieces, leaving some tiny space between each piece, to complete the whole design and to give the illusion of a backed cutfile. This is a great way or trick to use cutfiles, digital stamps or clip art where the lines are just too thin to use them as is.

When I had my main little cutie all done, I did a bit of mixed media on a white 12x12 sheet of cardstock. I put some gesso on it first to ensure that the color would not seep into the paper right away and then I had some fun making some pink and peachy splotches of color. When everything was dry, I splattered some gold color shine on the page.

I placed my cup on the layout, matted my picture with some scraps of patterned paper and adhered it next to the cactus cup. I then fussy cut some leaves and used some pieces of ephemera as embellishments. I also used some heart wood veneers.

For my title, I used the beautiful and fun stickers from Truly Grateful and wrote the name of the island, Isola Madre (which means Mother Island). I think it looks so good and fun with all the colors, especially because the blue of the picture is the same as the blue patterned papers. :)

I also did my Missy Whidden at the end, and nestled some pink thread in three places. :) I finished the embellishing with some puffy dots and I was done.
