Pink Paislee – Do What Makes Your Soul Happy Layout

Hello, PP fans. I am sooooo excited to share my very first layout with the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans. I know I say this about every Pink Paislee collection, but I am in love! The colors are vibrant, the patterns super fun, and can we talk about the flowers?!?! Aaaaaahhh… LOVE! Although I’m still waiting to get the full collection, I was eager to start creating with it. The layout I’m sharing today was entirely made with patterned papers, no stickers or other embellishments.

I started by choosing the colors for my background. I went with more subtle, fall-ish hues, just because it’s that time of the year 🙂 One of the things I love about this collection is that it features a variety of colors, from subtle to more vibrant, perfect to document any season or event. Next, I used a cut file by Paige to create a huge cluster of leaf branches behind my photo. I varied their size for more movement and a more natural look.

Once I had my background ready, I fussy cut a frame from Paper 07 and a few tags and embellishments from the cut apart sheet (Paper 13). I layered those behind my photo, which I then mounted on foam adhesive for dimension.

My title also comes from Paper 13. I backed it with teal patterned paper to create more contrast and separate it from the background.

I also fussy cut sentiment banners from Paper 08 to place around the photo, as well as butterflies and some of the stunning flowers, that I arranged here and there for a tone-on-tone look.

Pink Paislee – Love You Layout

Hello there! It’s Enza, and today I’m sharing a new layout created with an oldie but goodie collection. I have loved working with the Oh My Heart line in the past, so I thought I would bring it back to enjoy it a bit more. It’s like playing with a new collection all over again 😉

I wanted this page to be a concentrate of gorgeous flowers, so I started with the Large Flower cut file designed by Paige and made it the base of my huge cluster. I backed it with Paper 13, which is one of my favorites; it has dainty, colorful little flowers that are very feminine and sweet. Since it is a busy paper, I decided to tone it down with a darker background and solid colored flowers on top.

I adhered the cut file towards the left side of the page and trimmed the excess. I then proceeded to fussy cut the flowers to layer behind my photo. I chose bigger ones so they wouldn’t get lost in the background and used foam adhesive to lift them up a bit. For the photo, I arranged several die cuts and chipboard stickers around it. I also added a tag and some twine. You can notice how the different elements separate each layer from the next. The almost solid background makes the cut file pop, the flowers separate the busy patterned paper from the ephemera pieces, which in return create a separation between the flowers and the photo. I hope what I just tried to explain makes sense. Ha ha!

The title follows the line of the cut file. I simply used the alpha chipboard stickers to spell “love you” and added a heart between the two words.

Thank you for stopping by today! Do you ever go back and use collections that are a little older, but still make you feel like the first time you saw them? I do that often and it’s a lot of fun!

Pink Paislee – Happy Heart Layout

Hello, PP friends! Today I’m sharing a new layout featuring the super cute Wild Child collection. I couldn’t wait to make a page about my little one’s first day of school! She was so happy and ready, it was a joy to watch!

I started by choosing the cut file I wanted to use. My idea was to create a frame for the photo and embellish it with all kinds of ephemera pieces and stickers. The Frame cut file designed by Paige drew my attention for the interesting shape and the lovely flowers around it. I backed the middle portion first with Paper 06 – I love the soft, feminine colors! Then, using a darker strip from the same paper, I backed the smaller portion of the petals. For the rest I used patterned papers in the Wild Child Girl 6×6 Paper Pad. Some parts of the cut files were left as is; I like to see the background paper through the negative spaces.

I matted the photo with patterned papers and die cuts from the girl line and adhered it down with foam adhesive. I then arranged more pieces, such as puffy stickers, chipboard stickers, and fussy cut flowers in between the layers to add variety and color.

The title, for which I used chipboard stickers, fit perfectly in the right corner of the frame.

To complete the look of the layout, I added rub-on stars and fussy cut flowers on the outside of the cut file, as well as two strips of the same patterned papers used to back the flowers in the bottom portion of the page. I also included a lovely sentiment that comes in the 6×12 Sticker Sheet – I thought it was perfect for the theme of the layout.
