Pink Paislee – Thankful Blessed Grateful Layout

Hello, PP friends! Today I’m sharing a new layout that summarizes my feelings for the wonderful people I have in my life. I picked the Thankful Blessed Grateful cut file by Paige Evans and used it as a big title for my page. What I love about big titles is that you can seamlessly fit multiple photos on one layout. The Whimsical collection with its beautiful colors and patterns was perfect for the theme.

Whenever I have a big title to work with, I try to find pictures that fit in the negative spaces – I think it’s fun, and also I don’t have to figure out a placement for my photo, which would probably cover part of the title itself. Here I was able to perfectly fit three photos inside the letters. I then proceeded to back the rest of the letters with a variety of papers. I mostly used Paper 19 which features a combination of many patterns included in the collection.

Once I had the cut file ready, I adhered it onto Paper 01 which I had previously trimmed and distressed. I used foam dots for dimension and also small staples for added texture. Next, I arranged several flowers in three clusters to create a visual triangle and went on embellishing them with other fun goodies.

I love enamel dots and the ones included in the Whimsical collection are just too amazing! Hearts, butterflies, and flowers; I couldn’t ask for more! I need a million of them!

I also adhered colorful tassels to two of the clusters. I really like the texture and dimension. Finally, I chose a vibrant patterned paper as my background to make all the other elements on the page pop.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope I gave you some useful ideas for your next big title layout. Happy Thanksgiving!

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 – 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.
