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 …
This is my second layout called “Today”, I had made one of my daughter and this one is dedicated to my son. Nothing special, I just captured one moment, Igor in February 2016. When I saw this mood board on Jot Magazine’s blog, I knew I had to try to do something whit these stunning colors. The picture that most inspired me was the ‘ hangig garden’ with those lime leaves and the lilacs. I tried to repeat both the flourishes and the colors on my page. I painted some petals with watercolor and I cut out the flourishes, than I layered them with Dear Lizzy rub-ons. To be a bit more boyish, I also added a good amount of black (Dear Lizzy, Crate Paper). Finaly I hid some message to my son on a tag. It was fun! Thank you Anna for the beautiful mood board! Purple is a really difficult color for me, but I think the layout was turd out just as I imagined. Love, P.J.
Some days are just bad days, that’s all. I started this layout by choosing the photo I wanted to use. Then, I painted some paper with watercolor and I layerd them beneath the foto with a piece of lace. I wanted to use some Crate Paper chipboard elements from my Hip Kit and the rub-ons. I adore rub-ons! It always gives a special texture to the layout. I attached the chipboards, but it was kind of disappointed with how it turned out, to be honest, so I started to bring more embellishments. For my final touches, I added more gold elements and a bit of machine stitching. I did not want to journaling on this page, the date is on the other side of the page, like on old photos.

This is my first hybrid page. Nowdays I have to work whit blogs, so I thought, why not create a blog stile layout. I adore the moodboards and sketches made by fashion designers, thus I collected some ideas which I wanted to use on my page. The picture I used is one of my favorite photo about my children. I know, they are acephalous, but I think is still so expressive. I pre-print the image whit the quote and the title on it, than I painted a “color sheme” with gelatos and I put on some remnant fabric using a pin. The quote (Javier Marías: Corazón tan blanco – this book is a must!) is about the power of words, the power of silence, to listen or not to hear something. I have chosen the title “Hello” because it is a general word, everybody understands it all around the word, and it is a good start for a conversation. Finaly, above, in the right corner I added some die cut elements, wood veneer and a …
As I previously mentioned, we had our first family photography taken in January. I like this photo so much of my son because it is extremely idealistic. That is why I have chosen the title “Flawless”. I did not want to use much colors, I just piled up some NCsD chipboards, white resin frames, and bit of metallic add-ons to be more masculine finish. 😉 I put everything underneath his photo except the little fella, who sag into the picture. I am very proud of myself, because I could resist making splatters! Finally I put some light blue acrylic elements; I think they bring some life to this great whiteness. So, this is my fairy tale about a three years old, flawless little boy… Love, P.J.
Today I am sharing my first layout as a Guest Designer for NőiCsizma Design. At the end of January, we had our first family photography taken, this picture was taken during the photoshoot as well, and I love the style of the photographer, “the world of Kata”, as she captured perfectly the relationship of the brother and sister, and the face of Lena shows the love towards her younger brother too. I did not want to overdecorate the page, thus, I decided to only use some chipboard elements, some flowers in colours to match the colourscheme of the photo. I have to admit tough, I spent a lot of time to find the suitable place for the title in the picture, however, at the end, the final version is the closest to my original idea”
An afternoon I made some funny pictures of my daughter. I wanted to use the pictures in one layout when I was inspired by the idea of subway photo automats to make quick passport size photo shots. I lined the photos in one column, and I used all my rub-on stash beneath it. I cut out the title and I pasted on some Crate Paper chipboards and these pom-poms to be more playful. My daughter loved this development ;-).
I made this online workshop for NőiCsizma Design, in May 2015. During the workshop we used some mixed – media and layering technics, also to prepare self-made embellishments to create a mini album.
I have made this layout about my daughter. I have this photo about her since ages. I wanted to scrap it, but I had no clue how to do it, till I found this background chipboard from NőiCsizma Design. I cut out a circle with a punch from the chipboard, then I stamped all over the white spaces. The only things i used to embellish is some dots and rub-ons, and the big orange circle whit the X. That is it! 🙂 Challenge: In The Scrap
