Pink Paislee – Paper Pads: Big Title Layout

Hey there crafty friends! Today I’m kicking off Paper Pads week on the Pink Paislee blog. Paper Pads are versatile and convenient and can be used for any project in a variety of ways. I love the smaller sizes as they feature a miniature version of the bigger patterned papers, but also the 12×12 one that groups most of the papers in a collection, sometimes with foil accents, and usually contains doubles of them so you don’t take the risk of running out ๐Ÿ˜‰

My layout was mostly created with papers from the Pick-Me-Up Paper Pads: 2×2โ€, 6×6โ€, and 12×12โ€.

I started by cutting a big title from one of the 12×12โ€ papers. I went with a solid color, as I knew I wanted to back each letter with papers from the 2×2โ€ Paper Pads. The clean lines of the Label Maker Font cut file worked perfectly for the idea I had in mind.

I prepared my background with scalloped strips that I fussy cut from Oh My Heart Paper 17 and hand-stitched with coordinating embroidery floss onto white cardstock. Once all the letters were ready, I arranged them on top of the strips in a wonky way. You can see I decreased the size of the letters slightly as they went down the page, so to draw the eye towards the photos. I kept the embellishments around the pictures pretty minimal – a few die cuts and chipboard stickers, just to add color, and a camera and โ€œLove Youโ€ banner which were fussy cut from the 2×2โ€ Paper Pads.

The main embellishments are the rolled flowers I made with two cut files (242203ย &ย 239848). I used the 6×6โ€ Paper Pad, which is just the right size to create lovely additions like these.

I’m pretty happy with how this layout turned out! Paper Pads are a must-have in your stash and sometimes they’re all you need to create amazing projects!

I went with a home dรฉcor project this time.

The diagonal design was the starting point. I used a floral border cut file (ID #249910) as my guide. I cut it out of white cardstock and gave it some color by blending Frayed Leaf Crisp Ink all over it and Evergreen just on the edges. I then started stamping my flowers. Here are the colors of Crisp Ink I used:

  • blue flowers: Caribbean Sky, Turquoise, Persian Blue, Sapphire
  • orange flowers: Pink Pearl, Peach Perfect, Heart Beat
  • leaves: Sweet Leaf, Hunter Green

To make the diagonal design stand out more and give some color to the background, I used a dotted patterned paper from the Reflection Collection in the top portion of the page. I then placed the cut file along the edge between the two papers.

Once I had everything in place, I arranged flowers and leaves on top of the cut file, foam mounting them to achieve lots of dimension.

To finish the project, I stamped vine swirls around the whole design and added light green enamel dots, as well as green splatters with the Frayed Leaf Shimmer Ink Spray.

Pink Paislee – Auburn Lane: Floral Layout

Hello everyone! Enza here and today I’m sharing a layout featuring the gorgeous Auburn Lane collection. This collection is just too beautiful and if you love flowers and warm, cozy colors, it is a must-have.

Floral layout by @enzamg with @pinkpaislee Auburn Lane collection. #ppauburnlane #layout #floral #scrapbooking

I started by backing a cut file with patterned paper and adhering it in the middle of the page with foam adhesive. I like the dimension and also the way the woodgrain paper makes it pop by framing the whole design. I then fussy-cut a variety of flowers out of patterned paper and specialty vellum and created a big cluster in the top right corner of the page. I incorporated die-cuts and a cut file by Paige Evans (Design ID #240997), which I used in several spots to bring in a bright element and complete the look of the cluster.

I tucked the right corner of the picture underneath some of the flowers and topped it with one of the gorgeous wooden frames from the collection. I love the rustic and nostalgic feel of it! I embellished the frame with stickers, puffy stickers and die-cuts.

Next, I continued the diagonal design with more embellishments and a smaller cluster of flowers. I added sentiment stickers and a few hearts.
