PinkFresh Studio – Two Layouts with Indigo Hills 2

Hello friends! I’m very excited to share two layouts with you today using the gorgeous Indigo Hills 2 collection.

I love the deep tones and gorgeous floral elements of this collection; they are just too pretty, and I wanted to include as many as I could in my designs. When it comes to incorporate a variety of colors and patterns, cut files are my go-to tools.

For the first layout, I used the Flower Heart cut file by Paige Evans. I cut it from white cardstock and backed it with the following patterned paper: EminenceGorge, and Ridge. I left some of the flowers as is, so to have the rich color of the Meadow paper come through. Once I had the cut file ready, I adhered it in the center of the page with foam adhesive for dimension.

I then cut my photo to fit one of the frames in the Chipboard stickers set – I love how the colors in the photo match the ones in the collection perfectly! I layered a few die cuts and a sentiment from the Ephemera pack in the lower left corner of the frame; to add more interest in the same spot and draw the eye to it, I fussy cut some foliage from the Meadow paper and tucked it behind the cluster.

I created a similar cluster in the opposite corner, with fussy cut flowers from the same paper. As a finishing touch, I added enamel dots in coordinating colors.

For my second layout, I went with huge flowers. Once again, lots of layers and dimension.

I resized the cut file (ID #26942) a few times in order to create a more natural look. I grouped the flowers in a big cluster towards the left side of the page, alternating colors and sizes. To fill in the empty spaces and brighten the background a bit, I added some gorgeous flowers from the Ephemera pack.

For the photo, I used the same scalloped frame as in the first layout, and built several layers behind it before adhering it down with foam adhesive. You can see the fussy cut leaves from the Meadow patterned paper and a few die cuts in the lower right corner of the photo.

That’s all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I have given you some ideas for your next scrapbook layout.

Until next time!

Pink Paislee – “Love Everything About This” Layout

Hello friends! I’m excited to share my new layout with you today. I used the gorgeous Whimsical collection to document a sweet moment between me and my daughter. I can’t get enough of these lovely papers; and it’s no secret I adore the bright and colorful flowers that complement them so well.

I started my design with the Flower 12 Petals cut file designed by Paige. After cutting it once from white cardstock, I decided to cut only the outline from Paper 23 to obtain a solid shape to back it with. I also cut it a third time from a lighter blue patterned paper (Paper 04), as I wanted to add a contrasting color and bring in an extra element of interest to the page. I adhered only the center portion of the cut file to the patterned paper so I could lift the petals a bit and curve them inwards. I used the cut outs from Paper 04 to fill the tips of the petals – again, I partially glued them down and lifted the top part.

Once the cut file was ready, I built several layers behind my photo and used foam tape to glue it down, but not before creating a bed of flowers to set it in. The mix of die cuts, ephemera pieces, and fussy cut elements is just lovely and brightens the background drawing attention to the photo.

For the title, I combined the “love” sentiment from the Ephemera Pack with a fussy cut banner from Paper 08 and Mini Foam Alphabet Thickers.

I always say that flowers call for butterflies so here I added chipboard ones as well as die cuts from the Ephemera Pack.

A few enamel dots and white paint splatters finished the layout.

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.

Fall layout by @enzamg for @pinkpaislee using the #ppwhimsical collection. #pinkpaislee #cutfiles #falllayout

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.
