I am so very excited to share with you my first layout as a creative team member, on Pink and Paper’s blog. To created this page I used the adorable Carousel Collection from Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes. I adore the fresh, vivid colors and happy figures of this collection! First I made a messy painted, blue background on a transparent sheet and I glued it down on „Uplifting „ 12×12 paper from the collection, then I placed my photo. After I found the place to my title, I started to embellish my layout using the Chipboard Stickers and Ephemera Die Cuts from the same collection. (Yes! The striped buttons are from the Ephemera Pack too!) To balance my page I added some black and white strips on the top of my layout. As a final touch, for a little eye catching detail I have used almost all of the stars from Carousel collection. Love, P.J.
So proud to be part of the first Designer Team of Pink and Paper Shop and work with all these talented ladies. See you soon on the blog! Love, P.J.
Creating this page I follow the same method as with it’s “feminine” pair. I gathered all my small embellishments, bits and pieces from Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘YOU ROCK’ collection and I placed them around the photo to get a random – looking cluster. Small embellishments can easily get lost on a full-sized page, unless you group them in a certain place on your layout. The colors of this collection fit well with the colors of my photo. The yellow and orange elements smarten up the almost monochrome layout. As a title I used a cutfile from Felicity Jane Studio. This area I wanted to keep clean and simple to make contrast with the decoration on the bottom and top of the page. I finished my layout using flair buttons. I did not know which to choose, so I chose all. Love, P.J.
As I mentioned in a previous blog post before, the Hungarian scrap community has two annual meetings, one in April and the other during the late summer. We could participate in several workshops and try different styles. Flóra Mónika Farkas, owner of Pink & Paper Shop, showed us how to use large flowers in a layout. This is my version of her page: Love, P.J.
This year I have started something new, I hurtle into Project Life. As I am not a very systematic person, I was always afraid to start doing PL. Hence I have decided to do something light, I only document if something important happens in our life in a 6×8 format. our excursions: museum programs with children’s friends: about our project to find a cottage: and birthdays of course: I use Becky Higgins Project Life 6×8 album and page protectors, the inserts and embellishments are from Felicity Jane Studio. Love, P.J.
When I saw this month Jot Magazine Mood Board, I was in love! Have been wanting to use this floral printed textil on a layout, and now it seemed like the time has come, as it makes a good match for the mood board colours and with my photo. To embellish I have used Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams chipboards and Felicity Jane Studio papers and stamps. For the finishing touches I added some white feather and a beads to get a more girly look. Love, P.J.
