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.

Pink Paislee – Children: 3-In-1 Layout

Hello! I am so excited to kick off Children week on the blog. My kids are the focus of almost all of my layouts, so this was right up my alley. I rarely scrap layouts with multiple individual pictures of my children. I tend to focus on each one of them separately when it comes to creating something about them. For today’s layout, I decided to challenge myself by working on three different sections (one per each child) on the same page. The new Wild Child collection has so many fun pieces to play with, easy to mix and match to achieve a desired look.

The background paper I chose is already kind of divided in sections, so it helped me with the idea I had in mind. First I die cut the Polaroid Frame Border by Paige Evans from white cardstock three times. I love how the tiny frames allow for lots of colorful elements. The 6×6 paper pad with its smaller patterns was perfect for this.

After getting the frames ready, I adhered them down with dimensional adhesive. Next my favorite… embellishments!!! A mix of puffy stickers, rub-ons, and die cuts were used to highlight each section.

Same idea with the title(s). Having three different titles on top of the individual borders puts even more emphasis on the separation between them.

What I love the most about this layout is how everything came together so seamlessly. I hope this has given you some ideas on how to incorporate individual pictures of your children on one page!

Pink Paislee – Wild Child: Fun & Colorful Cards

Hello Pink Paislee friends! Today I am sharing two simple cards featuring the super fun and colorful Pink Paislee Wild Child collection. I really wanted to showcase the retro vibes of this new line, with its bold patterns and color palette, but also focus on the boy and girl themes separately.

For the first card, I used papers from the 6×6 paper pad to create a nested look. I started with a 5.5” square card base and reduced each subsequent layer by 0.5”. I popped the last layer up with a piece of foam to give the card some dimension. Then I fussy cut several flowers and placed them all around the ephemera piece that sits in the middle of the card. I love how the layering adds interest to an otherwise simple design.

My second card features some of the fun icons included in the collection. I fussy cut three rockets out of Paper 09 and layered them towards the left side of the card. I then added a planet from the ephemera pack and rub-on stars all the way around. I love rub-ons! I can’t wait to use more on my next projects! For the title, I used one of the chipboard phrase stickers included in the Explorer set, which also features colorful chipboard stars, perfect to add the final touch to your layouts or cards. Some stitching completed the card.

I hope I have inspired you today to use the new Wild Child collection to create fun and colorful cards!
