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.    

Never forget to question things

This mood board was a real challenge for me! When I saw it I thought that was so beautiful, but what would I do with these colors??? What most inspired me was the big image with the floppy disks. I haven’t got any products in these colours, so I decided to make a painted background  based on the mood board. First I put everything on the painted background, but it seemed too much for me. Than I cut my background in half, I cut out some speech bubbles and I added a few cristals, splatters and enamels.– Thanks Sharmaine for the challenge! Love, P.J.

Five ways to use tags

I adore tags! I use them a lot both on my pages as well as in my mini albums. In this post I like to share with you some tips how to use them in different proyects. For a lazy persone like me, the easiest way to create an album is just gather some tags inserting a binder ring: Tags are also very useful to create layers on your page or in your mini album: You can use them instead of greating cards: It´s a great decorative element on your page, whit hidden jurnaling, or as a string holder, or just to embellish your proyect. Finally an other mini I´ve made with tags. It´s a bit more complicated then the first one, but I think the result it speaks for itself. It´s fun that you can pull out and mix the tags as you want.(The tuto you can find HERE): 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 …

Us

‘I believe in the world as in a daisy, Because I see it. But I don’t think about it, Because to think is to not understand. The world wasn’t made for us to think about it (To think is to have eyes that aren’t well) But to look at it and to be in agreement.’ – Fernando Pessoa – Love, P.J.

Playing with twine

Whith my friend Tamara, we organize a scrap club here in Budapest. It’s a friendly gathering of scrapbook fun ladies twice a month. In every occasion we realize a particular project or techniques offered and instructed by us. In March, we decided to play whit twine. I prepared two inspirations for this occasion. On the first layout I cut out the word six ( ‘hat’ in Hungarian) whit my Cameo. After pinning holes along the edges, I embroidered with white twine to get this tone on tone effect. Con esta página participo en el reto de KIMIDORI. On the other project I wanted to create a little string art heart. In order to do this, and to use my stash, I  gathered all the rest brads I had. I created a rainbow color heart stabbing  the brads into the paper. I started the thread on the big brad and before coiling it around the next brad, I always returned to the big one. But you can do it without a particular plan, to get a nice messy …

Birthday mini album

I made this mini for the sixth birthday of my daughter. I liked to make an album which is airy, colorful and girly at the same time. I started by drawing some childish fowers and colored them with watercolor painting, but as usually happens I only used a part of it. I cut out a vellum envelope and trimmed some paper and journaling cards from Felicity Jane. I also made an inner envelope, just to lend variety to the album. After my photos were in place, I added the embellishments. Some cards I customized whit my watercolor flowers, some I added stamping or layerd whith the little left overs. Here I share with you a little video about the mini: Love, P.J.

Remember

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 .
