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.

Autumn decor ideas, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

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.

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.

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.

Fave

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.
