Altenew – Thankful Layout


Hello, Altenew fans. Enza here with you to share a new layout featuring the beautiful Layered Floral Elements Die Set.

This set is all you need to create pretty embellishments for your projects. As you can see, I got a little carried away, but it was fun. Plus, who doesn’t love big bouquets of flowers?

Let’s see how it came together!

I started by die cutting several layered flowers from patterned paper. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Collection, as the colors are perfect for a fall look. I love the shades of red, yellow, and pink, as well as the watercolor accents.


I created two big clusters in opposite corners of the page and layered my elements making sure to use foam dots for dimension. For the bottom layer, I used a cut file that included a variety of different leaves. I think it adds more interest and completes the look in a subtle way.


Once the clusters were ready, I used another cut file for the title. Again, the patterned paper came from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.


The last thing I needed to add was the photo. I kept it simple, with no extra embellishments, as the background was already pretty busy. Enamel dots and black paint splatters finished the layout.

I love how this page came together. The Layered Floral Elements Die Set is perfect to create embellishments for any type of projects. I was thinking of using felt next, maybe. 😉

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great day!

Pink Paislee – Love Your Laugh Layout

Hello crafty friends! Here’s a new layout created with the stunning Whimsical collection by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. This time I didn’t use any cut files, but a mix of fussy cut elements and rub-ons that made my page very colorful and happy.

I started by cutting the hexagon patterned paper (Paper 05) to cover a portion of my background – I love that this paper incorporates all the colors in the collection in a fun and unique way. After adhering the two fussy cut pieces down, I created several layers behind my photo with patterned paper and a green frame from Paper 07. To give it dimension I mounted it on foam adhesive.

The cut apart sheet includes pretty tags that are perfect for adding dimension and details to your projects. Here I lined them up to bring in more of the beautiful colors and patterns. I also liked that I could use twine, which always adds so much texture!

Once everything was in place, I continued on with the embellishments. I fussy cut some of the beautiful flowers and arranged them behind the tags. I did the same with the title and other elements on the page. Again, foam adhesive is what makes this page very dimensional.


As a finishing touch, I used a few rub-ons here and there. The cross-stitched ones are my favorite when it comes to adding extra detail and interest to the page.

Crate Paper – Hooray! Layout

Hello, everyone! Today I’m back with a layout created with the new, super fun Hooray! collection. I love the happy colors and patterns in this collection; the embellishments are adorable, and can we talk about the glitter? Just fabulous!

This layout is all about my little one’s birthday celebration.

I started by picking papers and embellishments I wanted to use.

In order to incorporate a variety of colors and patterns on my background, I matted the Cake paper with two different patterned papers. I actually fussy cut the Cake paper along the diagonal line first, and adhered it back together to make it a little smaller.

I backed my photos with die cuts and papers from the collection before adhering them in the center of my page with foam adhesive. Whenever I have such pretty embellishments to work with, I tend to create layouts that are center-focused; I find that I have more space to surround the photos with all kinds of fun goodies 😉 Here I mixed die cuts, stickers, chipboard and puffy stickers to form a big cluster.

The different thicknesses of the embellishments used give the page more movement, while the glitter accents add a beautiful texture. And that pink llama!!! Too cute! I finished the layout with two strips of washi tape on the top and bottom edge to mimic a frame.

I love how colorful and fun this layout turned out. The Hooray! collection is perfect to document any type of celebrations.
