Travel Journal, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

I like to show you my first travel journal, or something similar… I prepared my travel journal in a notebook that I bought in England, but in the webshop you can choose between several beautiful travel journals. To create my journal I have chosen My Mind’s Eye Joyful collection, because it’s versatility. The black and white, with gold design is not only highlights the festive ocassions but is perfect to accompany the daily moments as well. I wanted to keep my journal very simple, so I decided to have the structure: one photo, one My Mind’s Eye Journal Card, and so on. To complete my work I could not resist using My Mind’s Eye Joyful, 6×12 Stickers and My Mind’s Eye Joyful Diecuts. I show you my favorite pages: Love, P.J.

How do get inspiration to create?

It happens to me sometimes that I am in the for creating, but I have no inspiration. In these occasions  what most help me are the blogs of decoration or art, where I always find something that raises my spirit. That has happened with this photo, where my daughter is preparing a “perfume of lilacs”. Browsing on the internet I found this  beautiful package on Oh So Pretty.com,  and I decided to use the image  as a scketch of my layout. After having found this image I just had to follow “the recipe”, the page came together very easily: Love P.J.

Wishes

I try to finish my stash, so I made this very simple layout from the scraps I have left, combining with the beautiful Foliage cut files from Felicity Jane Studio. Love, P.J.

Vértes Mini album

Today I am sharing a mini album about the excursion we made in Vértes last year. I wanted to use all the bits and pieces I had left from the Tuesday Kit. To begin, I gathered some papers and puffy stickers. After I trimmed my photos by 4×4 inches and I printed out the quote on vellum (Árpád Tóth for the Hungarian readers). As a next step, I designed the front cover in Ilustrator.  You can use a Word Document also, but for me it is easyer to change the letter styles and put everything in its right place using this program. Once everything was designed and printed out, I punched one hole on every page for my small binder ring. Before assemble the album, I  decided to make some embellisments for the ring, so  I created a yellow tassel and I covered the background of a puffy heart with pattern paper then punched it in order to get a little charm. As a final tuch I added a banner and a ribbon to the ring. I also prepared a quick …

Flawless

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.
