It is already tradition in our home that the kiddoes have a small Christmas tree in their room in this season. Why not use it as an advent calendar, where the days of the calendar are the ornaments? The process is very easy, you can really do it in an hour. First I painted 24 boxes of matches on white. After the painting was dry I started decorating with American Crafts Sweater Weather Stickers, American Crafts Sweater Weather Ephemera Pack and American Crafts Sweater Joyous Alpha Thickers. These are my favorites: I think the trick of this type of projects is no to owerthink, just go with the flow and enjoy creating. Every piece of this collection is very cute and color-coordinated, so it is very easy to work with them. As a last step, when the boxes were ready, I placed them on the Christmas tree. Love, P.J.
I found some unscraped winter photos from last year. How could this happen? Immediate intervention was required. I was sure that I would like to use the Brrrr paper from American Crafts Sweater Weather collection as a background of my layout, and the cutfile that I made of Echo Park Snowflake (Design ID #23132) and Sophie Gallo (Design ID #66600). Finally I added some cute deatils from American Crafts Sweater Weather Ephemera Pack and the golden title. With this layout I participate in Pink and Paper Shop November Challenge. Love, P.J.
Happy Friday Everyone! I am Julia and today I would like to show you a family tree layout. Now that we are entering in the winter season, I like to create more and more with Jen Hadfield’s Heart of Home collection, because of it’s heartwarming, rustic colors. First I chose Pebbles Heart of Home Grow paper, wich was designed just for this purpose. After choosing the paper, I placed my photos in a circle on my layout. Under the images I decorated with the Pebbles Heart of Home Layered Label Stickers. After I decorated the empty places between the photos with Pebbles Heart of Home Ephemeras and Pebbles Heart of Home Layered Stickers. As a final touch, I added some ribbon and feather. Isn’t just a perfect gift for Christmas? Love, P.J.
Hi Everyone! Julia here. I really like watercolor painting because even though it has a lot of personality it is very easy to use material for beginners too. In this blogpost I would like to give you some basic ideas how to use it on your scrap layouts. Mona is also a big fan of the JaneDavenport – Bright palette, so she made you a color palette as a little help: When sometimes we buy a scrap treasure, we don’t even have an idea how many opportunities it has. Just take a look at this gorgeous Jane Davenport – Bright Watercolor Palette. It has great colors, you got a mixing palette which I simply adore and it has 12 beautiful colors. However if we take a closer look it contains so much more. I made a little color chart from the Bright palette by pairing every color and painting them to a watercolor paper for a better transparency. I mixed every color pair 1:1 and so I got 80 nicely saturated colors. What I love in this palette …
Today I like to show you two projects I made with the cosy Pebbles Heart of Home collection. For both project I precut autumn leaves from Pebbles Hear of Home 6×6 Paper Pad. My first project is a packaging tip, this box I made for one of my daughters friend, what is inside is a supersecret, but I can tell you that for outside I used the lovely butterflies of Pebbles Ephemera Pack and some precut leaves. The second one is a fall wreath what I had started with my son in a “crafts afternoon” in my son’s nursery, and I finished at home using Pebbles Heart of Home Ephemera butterflies and diecut leaves. Love, P.J.

Today I like to share with you my new scrapbook layout I made with the awesome Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes Carousel collection for Pink and Paper Shop. We have a really fun summer with my kiddos and this collection is perfect for document happy moments. I started this layout by trimming down my background paper, then I stenciled the white cardstock with Heidi Swapp Dream Art Screens using light molding paste. I was sure that I will use the cute little pom – poms from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Carousel Small Embellishment Mix, as well as the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Carousel 12×12 Chipboard Stickers, so I gathered all the embellishments to decorate my layout. I rowed the pom-poms on a floss and I placed them on my scrapbook page, after I added a tons of embellishments with them I fixed the twine. Once it was done, I jumped to the bottom of my layout adding more black embellishments from Carousel Epehemera pack to create balance in the design. Finally I placed my title . I skipped the journaling this time …
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.
So proud to be part of the first Designer Team of Pink and Paper Shop and work with all these talented ladies. See you soon on the blog! Love, P.J.
“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! With this layout I participate in InTheScrap “Minimalismo” Challenge. Love, P.J.
