Happy Snow Days

I found some unscraped winter photos from last year. How could this happen? Immediate intervention was required. I was sure that I would like to use the Brrrr paper from American Crafts Sweater Weather collection as a background of my layout, and the cutfile that I made of Echo Park Snowflake (Design ID #23132) and Sophie Gallo (Design ID #66600). Finally I added some cute deatils from American Crafts Sweater Weather Ephemera Pack and the golden title. With this layout I participate in Pink and Paper Shop November Challenge. Love, P.J.

Heart of Home Family Tree Layout, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

Happy Friday Everyone! I am Julia and today I would like to show you a family tree layout. Now that we are entering in the winter season, I like to create more and more with Jen Hadfield’s Heart of Home collection, because of it’s heartwarming, rustic colors. First I chose Pebbles  Heart of Home Grow paper, wich was designed just for this purpose. After choosing the paper, I placed my photos in a circle on my layout. Under the images I decorated with the Pebbles Heart of Home Layered Label Stickers. After I decorated the empty places between the photos with Pebbles Heart of Home Ephemeras and Pebbles Heart of Home Layered Stickers. As a final touch, I added some ribbon and feather. Isn’t just a perfect gift for Christmas? Love, P.J.

Watercolor Basics with Jane Davenport Paint Set, Pink and Paper Shop Design Team Post

Hi Everyone! Julia here. I really like watercolor painting because even though it has a lot of personality it is very easy to use material for beginners too. In this blogpost I would like to give you some basic ideas how to use it on your scrap layouts. Mona is also a big fan of the JaneDavenport – Bright palette, so she made you a color palette as a little help: When sometimes we buy a scrap treasure, we don’t even have an idea how many opportunities it has. Just take a look at this gorgeous Jane Davenport – Bright Watercolor Palette. It has great colors, you got a mixing palette which I simply adore and it has 12 beautiful colors. However if we take a closer look it contains so much more. I made a little color chart from the Bright palette by pairing every color and painting them to a watercolor paper for a better transparency. I mixed every color pair 1:1 and so I got 80 nicely saturated colors. What I love in this palette …

Right Now, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

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.

Hordó

“Hordó” means barrel in Hungarian, and this is the most beloved, and at the same time, the most fearful toy of my children in the park. I would like to make a very clean, very airy page. Looking for cutfiles I found this background from The Cut Shoppe. I loved the tone-on-tone effect, the white die-cuts on the white paper, but I decided to add some color to my layout. I layered several clouds whith these delicate pastel color papers from Felicity Jane Studio. I  love how beautifully coordinated the papers are in this 6×6 FJ Favorites Collection. To conclude my page I added some bits and pieces also from Felicity Jane Studio, Crate Paper and Pink Paislee. It was fun to play with these cute clouds and beautiful papers, I couldn’t be happier with the way this layout turned out! Love, P.J.

Live in the moment vol.2

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.

Blessings

I always love the challenges of Jot Magazine. First I started to draw some plants just for fun and then I thought that they can be part of my project. After completing my drawings, I added some gray drops using my gelato. Once the paper was dry, I completed the drawings whit gold rub-ons. I cut out some flowers and leaves whit my Cameo, and I placed them on top of the drawn composition. I always try to use all parts of the diecuts, so I decided to glue down the negative part too, as if they were leaves falling the tree in a storm. To embellish I also used my Cameo, cutting out two bows from gold printed vellum. Finally I added my title. I created a little composition on the right side in order to balance the page and to add the date. To have a more girly lookl, I layerd some doilies under my photo. Thank you Lauren fot the inspiration! Love, P.J.  

Live in the moment

Because I’m still in love whit Felicity Jane Studio mini clips, I wanted to hang as many embellishments as I could. First I cut out a title with my Silhouette.  Usually I prefer white backgrounds, but this time I chose the grey one because I wanted the title can pop out. Before placing my title I added some gold spatters to give a little  dynamism to my layout. When found the perfect place for my title and for the photo, I gathered all my small embellishments from Felicity Jane Studio, and placed them around, and on the title. I think it is turned out wide and free, isn´t it?   Love, P.J.

Friends

This photo I’ve been saving for some time because I wanted to make a layout that reflects the milieu of my daughter’s best friend’s birthday. First I would like to make fairy – lamps but than I found these cute little clips from Felicity Jane Studio  and I decided to make some tassels. I used yarn and residuals  to make them. Once I start putting ornaments it is very difficult to stop. I completed my layout with all the cuties I found in my stock from Felicity Jane Studio and Pink Paislee. I made a small cluster on the right bottom under the photo where I placed my journaling, and two others above the photo and on the left side to balance the page.    Love, P.J.
