December Daily with Sweater Weather Collection, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

This year I decided to make a Project Life type December Daily, even so I like to show you some tricks, how to make your album more versatile. As the basis of the DD I used Becky Higgins, Project Life 6×8 Black Pattern album, Becky Higgins, Project Life 6×6 Big Envelope, Becky Higgins, Project Life 8,5×11 Page Protector, Becky Higgins, Project Life Design2 és Design3 pockets. To get an integrated look is always a good idea to use one particular collection, this time I chose American Crafts, Sweater Wheater collection.  I also precut the numbers of the dates in order to unify the album. Those who know me know that I adore outstanding elements, so I created an interactive layout using American Crafts, Sweater Weather Ephemera. Although all type of page protectors are available, sometimes is good to play with different forms. I cut off a strip of pockets from Becky Higgins, Project Life Panoramic Page Protector and I decorated it with American Crafts Sweater Weather Ephemera and Stickers. I love to use different type of materials and I think with this collection jeans fits very well, so I made …

Sweater Weather Collection – Advent Calendar, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

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.

Happy Snow Days

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.

October Challenge, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

I´m so excited to share with you this layout as an inspiration for the very first Monthly Challenge on Pink and Paper Shop! I invite you to play with us using the sketch below: In my layout I used almost eveything from Pebbles Heart of Home Collection. I love this cosy mixture of gold, brown and pale pink. It reminds me of the lights on an october afternoon. For the background I chose Pebbles Heart of Home Grow 12×12 paper, and I added some 6×6 papers from the Pebbles Heart of Home Paper Pad. The embellishments are from Pebbles Heart of Home Ephemera Pack and Pebbles Heart of Home Label Stickers. Click here for challegne details.   Love, P.J.
