Tesótitok, Pink and Paper Design Team post

For this scrapbook layout using the irresistible Wild Child collection from Pink Paislee. The layout was inspired by the Hungarian Christmas candy: szaloncukor. I started my layout by trimming down an 8,5 x 11 inch background paper from American Crafts White Cardstock. Next I chose Pink Paislee Wild Child 12×12 Paper 8 and I trimmed a piece of it. I cut the strips following the design of Pink Paislee Wild Child 12×12 Paper 8 and I curled them up.  I glued down the designer paper on the top of my background without sticking the strips. After finding the right place of my photo, I cut out the title with my new Cameo 3 (wohooo!), and placed them above the Pink Paislee Wild Child 12×12 Paper 8. I made some tinsels from gold string to get a more fluffy, Christmas candy look, and I put them under some paper strip. Finally I created a long embellishment using  Pink Paislee Wild Child Ephemera Pack,  My Mind´s Eye Blush Enamel Dots and some ribbons I have left. To balance the page I added a strip of Pink Paislee Wild Child Ephemeras on …

Last Minute DIY Gifts, Pink and Paper Design Team Post

Today I brought two simple and super fast projects. Who does not like cakes? If you fill a box with your homemade cookies, you will gladden the heart of your friend  surely. The way to prepare the box is very simple, you will need a paper plate that you have to bend and cut as you see in the image above. Then tie it with a nice ribbon and decorate with My Minds Eye, Joyful Collection Die Cuts.  Stickers or Chipboards. My other gift is a Christmas bulb. I like to receive decorations for the Christmas tree, because they remind me of the person from whom I received them. I filled the bulb with My Minds Eye, Joyful Collection Die Cuts and with some cute things and as a final touch I added a bow. Love P.J.

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! With this layout I participate in InTheScrap “Minimalismo” Challenge. 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.
