#Today vol. 2

This is my second layout called “Today”, I had made one of my daughter and this one is dedicated to my son. Nothing special, I just captured one moment, Igor in February 2016. When I saw this mood board on Jot Magazine’s blog, I knew I had to try to do something whit these stunning colors. The picture that most inspired me was the ‘ hangig garden’  with those lime leaves and the lilacs. I tried to repeat both the flourishes and the colors on my page. I painted some petals with watercolor and I cut out the flourishes, than I layered them with Dear Lizzy rub-ons. To be a bit more boyish, I also added a good amount of black (Dear Lizzy, Crate Paper). Finaly I hid some message to my son on a tag. It was fun! Thank you Anna for the beautiful mood board! Purple is a  really difficult color for me, but I think the layout was turd out just as I imagined. Love, P.J.

Gift for Grandma

I ‘ve made this origami little love pocket mini to my mother about her grandchirldren. Here I share whit you how to do it. It is very easy, all you need is scissors, double sided adhesive tape and a 8,5 x 11 inch / A4 paper. 1. First fold the paper in half and fold the outside of the paper till the half of the paper.  Leave a 1/8 inch in the center. 2. From the bottom fold down 1 inch. 3. Open the paper, and cut the two little pieces along the foldlines. 4. Fold the corners in to meet the external fold line. Do it with all four corners 5. Fold the two flaps inside. 6. Turn the paper over and fold it up to the one inch foldline. Now you can see the little pockets on both sides. 7. Fold down the one inch part, and stick it inside with the other side of the paper. 8., 9., 10., Now,  the olny thing you want to do is fold the booklet in a half. …

Me, myself and I

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 ;-).
