Today  I share an easy and fun design whit you. This layout I made  without any journaling, just to document how big my little girl is getting. I used Felicity Jane’s papers and my Cameo as always. I hope you will enjoy the video: With this layout I participate in Jot Magazine’s October Challenge: Love, P.J.

More Wilna

This is my current favorite picture about my daughter and my current favorite poem about motherhood. The layout based on Wilna’s “Lesson in grace” mini workshop and I made it for Cocoloko’s Trio Challenge. Love, P.J.

Wilna, Wilna, Wilna

I think we all agree that Wilna is our eternal inspiration. She was my first “international teacher” when I started scrapbooking, and time to time I feel I must return and create a layout in her style. First I made a background whit black chalkboard paint. Once  the black paint was dry I added a soft pink paint layer. After that, I drew one of Wilna’s pattern whit my Silhouette sketh pen. It is very easy! You will follow the same steps as for a normal cut file, but at the end, in the ‘Cut Settings Window’ you will change from ‘cutting blade’ to ‘sketch pen’. Do not forget to load your pen before printing! Here you can find an official tutorial. The creative files I used from Wilna: BLOOM Collection  and LEAVES Cut Files + Brushes. As a last step I adedd a little bit of color to freshen up my composition using  Jot Magazine’s mood board as a color scheme. As a final touch I embellished my layout with Wilnas cut outs. Love, P.J.

I decided to document my kids best sayings in scrapbook layouts. This is the first one of the series. I found this gorgeous big sequin cut files from FJ Studio in the Silhouette store and I could not resist. Con este layout participo en el reto de julio de  In the Scrap. Love, P.J.

D like dance

If someone asked my children, what they favourite activity is apart from playing, they would definitely say it is dancing. Black chalk paint, Felicity Jane Studio papers, flairs and some Pink Paislee buttons. The idea of papercut initial I borrowed from Suzy Taylor. You should go and check her beautiful handmade letters. Love, P.J.

In April Jot Magazine made an incredible inspiring mood board again. I love all the colors and details! Thank you Loredana! As usual I’ve taken inspiration from the colour palette. I layered my photo with Felicity Jane papers and with the Silhouette backround. I added a lot of embellishments on the right side of the photo, and some left overs on the left side of my layout in order to balance it.  I know, I know… my layout turned out much more bucolic than the beautiful modern design on the mood board. But what can I do? Nowadays I can’t resist using orchids, petals and leaves. Siendo una loca con esta página participo en el reto de mayo de Cocoloko.es. Love, P.J.

Today I share my layout inspired by Jot Magazine’s March Mood Board. Normally I use a lot of blue and green, but this time the pink lemonade and the mint truck was what really caught my eye. So, I layered all the black and white papers and I sewed them on each other. I continued layering with embellishments from Crate Paper and with some die cuts from Wilna, till I  filled up the white spaces around the photo. I’m quite happy how my layout turned out. As chaotic as monday morning wakings,  when you don’t know that you are half awake or half asleep, then you drag the curtains and the sun is dazzle in your eyes… It was so much fun create this LO, thank you Mardi for the inspiration! Love, P.J.  

Hello

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 …

Me, myself and I

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 ;-).
