Pink Paislee – To My Grandma

Hello, Pink Paislee friends. Enza here, and today I’m sharing a layout that has my heart. I don’t usually share much of my private life on social media, but as a documenter and memory keeper it’s inevitable sometimes. My grandma passed away a couple of weeks ago. I was so excited to see her this coming summer. After eight years we had finally planned to go back to Italy and visit the family; her desire was to see our kids and spend time with them – she hadn’t even met our little one yet 😦 Needless to say, it’s been a rough couple of weeks. My intention is not to make you feel sad or sorry for me. This layout is a tribute to her, a way for me to cope and honor her memory, now and always.

As you may have heard, the Horizon collection has hit JoAnn stores this month – they carry a new, amazing Project Pad that includes stickers, some of the papers from the collection, glitter paper, and solid cardstock in coordinating colors. That’s what I mostly used for my layout, along with a frame and a tag from the ephemera pack, and some puffy stickers.

I started by backing the Rose Wreath cut file designed by Paige with patterned paper and solid colored cardstock. I chose pinks, yellows, and shades of blue, which were some of my grandma’s favorite colors. I left some parts of the cut file as is – I love seeing the coral background peeking through.

Once the wreath was finished, I fussy cut the little flowers from one of the papers included in the Project Pad. I matted the photo with more patterned paper and a tag, and I also added a frame on top. Foam adhesive was used to give dimension.

I scattered the little flowers all around the page, concentrating especially on the photo. The flowers you see in the top right corner are stickers from the Project Pad, while the “love” word and the hearts come from the New Roads Puffy Phrase and Icons set.

To finish the layout, I simply added fussy cut butterflies and the date.

I love how this layout turned out and I think my grandma would have loved it too ❤

Don’t forget to check out your local JoAnn store for this gorgeous Project Pad and more items from the collection! Thank you for stopping by!
