Right Now, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

I am so very excited to share with you my first layout as a creative team member, on Pink and Paper’s blog. To created this page I used the adorable Carousel Collection from Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes.  I adore the fresh, vivid colors and happy figures of this collection! First I made a messy painted, blue background on a transparent sheet and I glued it down on „Uplifting „ 12×12 paper from the collection, then I placed my photo. After I found the place to my title, I started to embellish my layout using the Chipboard Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts from the same collection. (Yes! The striped buttons are from the Ephemera Pack too!) To balance my page I added some black and white strips on the top of my layout. As a final touch, for a little eye catching detail I have used almost all of the stars from Carousel collection. Love, P.J.

Hordó

“Hordó” means barrel in Hungarian, and this is the most beloved, and at the same time, the most fearful toy of my children in the park. I would like to make a very clean, very airy page. Looking for cutfiles I found this background from The Cut Shoppe. I loved the tone-on-tone effect, the white die-cuts on the white paper, but I decided to add some color to my layout. I layered several clouds whith these delicate pastel color papers from Felicity Jane Studio. I  love how beautifully coordinated the papers are in this 6×6 FJ Favorites Collection. To conclude my page I added some bits and pieces also from Felicity Jane Studio, Crate Paper and Pink Paislee. It was fun to play with these cute clouds and beautiful papers, I couldn’t be happier with the way this layout turned out! Love, P.J.

Live in the moment vol.2

Creating this page I follow the same method as with it’s “feminine” pair.  I gathered all my small embellishments, bits and pieces  from Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘YOU ROCK’ collection and I placed them around the photo to get a random – looking cluster. Small embellishments can easily get lost on a full-sized page, unless you group them in a certain place on your layout. The colors of this collection fit well with the colors of my photo. The yellow and orange elements smarten up the almost monochrome layout. As a title I used a cutfile from Felicity Jane Studio. This area I wanted to keep clean and simple to make contrast with the decoration on the bottom and top of the page. I finished my layout using flair buttons. I did not know which to choose, so I chose all. Love, P.J.

Blessings

I always love the challenges of Jot Magazine. First I started to draw some plants just for fun and then I thought that they can be part of my project. After completing my drawings, I added some gray drops using my gelato. Once the paper was dry, I completed the drawings whit gold rub-ons. I cut out some flowers and leaves whit my Cameo, and I placed them on top of the drawn composition. I always try to use all parts of the diecuts, so I decided to glue down the negative part too, as if they were leaves falling the tree in a storm. To embellish I also used my Cameo, cutting out two bows from gold printed vellum. Finally I added my title. I created a little composition on the right side in order to balance the page and to add the date. To have a more girly lookl, I layerd some doilies under my photo. Thank you Lauren fot the inspiration! Love, P.J.  

Live in the moment

Because I’m still in love whit Felicity Jane Studio mini clips, I wanted to hang as many embellishments as I could. First I cut out a title with my Silhouette.  Usually I prefer white backgrounds, but this time I chose the grey one because I wanted the title can pop out. Before placing my title I added some gold spatters to give a little  dynamism to my layout. When found the perfect place for my title and for the photo, I gathered all my small embellishments from Felicity Jane Studio, and placed them around, and on the title. I think it is turned out wide and free, isn´t it?   Love, P.J.

Friends

This photo I’ve been saving for some time because I wanted to make a layout that reflects the milieu of my daughter’s best friend’s birthday. First I would like to make fairy – lamps but than I found these cute little clips from Felicity Jane Studio  and I decided to make some tassels. I used yarn and residuals  to make them. Once I start putting ornaments it is very difficult to stop. I completed my layout with all the cuties I found in my stock from Felicity Jane Studio and Pink Paislee. I made a small cluster on the right bottom under the photo where I placed my journaling, and two others above the photo and on the left side to balance the page.    Love, P.J.

How do get inspiration to create?

It happens to me sometimes that I am in the for creating, but I have no inspiration. In these occasions  what most help me are the blogs of decoration or art, where I always find something that raises my spirit. That has happened with this photo, where my daughter is preparing a “perfume of lilacs”. Browsing on the internet I found this  beautiful package on Oh So Pretty.com,  and I decided to use the image  as a scketch of my layout. After having found this image I just had to follow “the recipe”, the page came together very easily: Love P.J.

Annual Scrapcamp 2 – Flora’s floral layout

As I mentioned in a previous blog post before, the Hungarian scrap community has two annual meetings, one in April and the other during the late summer. We could participate in several workshops and try different styles. Flóra Mónika Farkas, owner of Pink & Paper Shop, showed us how to use large flowers in a layout. This is my version of her page:  Love, P.J.
