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 …
You may think this will be a “kill the kit” post, but in fact, I’ve just received my new kit from Felicity Jane. As I got my package, I was like a child in a candy store, I wanted to use all at the same time. 😀 When I read the Inspired by… post of Danielle and I saw the sneek peak image of March kit, I decided to use the sneek image design as a sketch:Nowadays I obsessively leave messages for my children, this time I chose a quote from Susana Fortes about being brother and sister . Love, P.J.

As spring approaches so fast, I decided to change a bit my favorite place in the house, my scrapbook room. We are always so very creative! We use all the things in a different way that it should be. Today, I’ll choose the classic way, I’m going to use the resin frames as a frame. I believe it may have occurred to you too, when you are practicing or experimenting with watercolor or other mediums, however, the outcome does not finish as your originally planned, though you feel pity to throw out the sheet. So, do not do it! Just use a part of it! Put a frame on the paper, and try to find the perfect cut out. When you found it, cut out the detail and put it into a frame. I am very happy with my recycled sheet. 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. Challenges: Cocoloko, Kimidori, The Studio Challenges Love, P.J.

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 ;-).
