Happiness | Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Whimsical | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new layout to share with you for Sassy Scrappers using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. I will be working with this collection over the next few weeks so stay tuned for some inspiration each Friday!

This week I wanted to try adding some paper fringing! I have had my fringing scissors for about 2 years and have never used them until now! They work terrific! First, I cut out a large heart shape from plain white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

Because I only have the 6' x 6' paper pad to work with and the heart was larger than 6' x 6' I had to cut out 2 strips of each paper I was using in order for the fringing to reach across the entire heart shape. I arranged them in a rainbow order and overlapped each one slightly. Once they were adhered on the back side, I then flipped it over and lifted up some of the fringing.....just look at all that awesome texture!

I added a drawn border around the outline of the heart to emphasize it more, I also added that zigzag sticker strip to the bottom left of the heart, I like how it goes with the fringing with its zig zag edge. My photo was framed with the super cute heart frame from the ephemera pack. I used craft foam underneath the photo and frame to add even more dimension.  

I embellished my page with a tone on tone look and tucked a die cut flower on the right of the photo, I love how the butterflies look on this page too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and try out a layout like this one!

Happy creating!

I Am | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone,


Today I am sharing a fun design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe that uses the brand new 'All The Angles' cut file


I love creating layouts like this where it gives you the opportunity to use up some leftover papers and embellishments you may have had sitting around for a while! I loved that I had enough papers to be able to back each of the triangles in this design.

All the Angles

I cut out the cut file from white cardstock, once the triangles were all backed behind, I used washi tape to secure them as I knew I was going to add machine stitching. I absolutely LOVE machine stitching and the effect it brings to a page.

 I kept the title and embellishing fairly simple, I used some stickers, wood veneer, die-cuts and some metal brad stickers to embellish. Some things I did use foam tape with for added dimension however not all needed the dimension. 

I added a little bit of tone on tone embellishing as you will see in the next 2 photos, where there was a teal paper, I added the same colour embellishment to that spot and so on. My photo was adhered with foam tape and some layers added enough for dimension. I placed the photo slightly to the right of the centre to allow for embellishing.

Thank you for stopping by today! Make sure to check out the awesome Cut Shoppe store! There are new designs being added all the time plus you will find your favourites in there too!

You Make Me Smile | Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Whimsical | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new design team layout to share with you  created for Sassy Scrappers using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. I will be working with this collection over the next few weeks so stay tuned for some inspiration each Friday!

This week I wanted to incorporate some hand stitching on my page. I started sketching a flower shape onto white cardstock and then on the inside of the hand stitching I made a small slit in the paper to be able to tuck the die cut flowers into. I pierced holes along the design of the sketch and then stitched my heart away!

It's best to get the stitching part done first and I will admit, it did take me a while as it was a new kind of stitch that I had never tried before. Its called chain link stitch and it took me a little bit to get the hang of it. I chose the golden colour to enhance some of the gold pieces in the flowers. I used 4 strands of the embroidery thread.

 Once the stitching was all done, it was time to adhere my photo down and embellish the page. The next step was to get the flowers tucked into the slit on the left how I liked them. I used the whole packet of ephemera flowers except for the leaves. I used the whole bottom section of the packet for this one page! I bent some of them up to add dimension and also adhered some with foam tape too. 

You can see in the photo above that it created lovely shadows and dimension. I kept the right hand side fairly simple with mainly just my photo popped up on some craft foam and a few small embellishments added around the photo. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and try out a layout like this one!

Happy creating!

Happy Times | Happiness | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,
Today I am excited to share a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio with you using the STUNNING new Happiness collection! As soon as I saw the gorgeous geometric large die-cut heart with the backing paper already done, I knew I had to create something with it! 

Whenever you buy one of these, the large die-cut is lightly taped to the very centre of the backing paper. I pulled this off and began adding thin strips of foam adhesive to the back side of the large heart. Once it was complete with craft foam, I then lined it up with the backing sheet and adhered it down. I just love the shadows and dimension this gives to the heart. This is a great alternative to just sticking the heart die-cut straight down on the backing sheet, it creates some great dimension! 

The photo I am scrapping today is one of myself having fun with some Snapchat filters recently. This photo with the hearts was perfect for this page. I layered some of the gorgeous 6' x 8' papers from the paper pad underneath my photo to help it stand out from all those colours in the heart. I layered my title 'Happy Times' right beside my photo to help draw your eye in and also clustered some of the other embellishments around the photo like the tassels and flower die-cuts and a flair button. 

I absolutely LOVE the clear stickers from Happiness so I added a few of the navy blue sketched ones for added interest in some parts of the heart. I also added one of clear sticker arrows to below the photo.Have you ordered your Happiness collection from our retailers yet? 

Its now starting to arrive in retail stores around the country so make sure to check them out! You will not be disappointed!

See you next time,

Happy creating,

Beautiful You | Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Whimsical | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers to share with you using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. I will be working with this collection over the next few weeks so stay tuned for some inspiration each Friday!

I have had this gorgeous photo of my niece printed out for a little while, in this photo she is about 8 months old and she is almost 2 now! I just love this photo and it was the perfect one to use with the Whimsical collection and cut file. I chose a large cut file title this week, I cut the title out on white cardstock and then used the Whimsical 6' x 6' paper pad to back all the letters. I used lots of the different patterns and colours.

I kept the embellishing fairly minimal on this layout because of the title taking a lot of the limelight! The 'Pretty' die-cut from the ephemera pack was so suited for this page...since its about beautiful Olivia, I think she is pretty too of course!  I placed it so that it was right near Olivia's eyes in the photo.

I added some of the puffy sticker embellishments, more die-cutscardstock stickers and also some of the chipboard stickers too. I mainly used some of the small things like banners and hearts so that it would not hinder any of the title or photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and try out a layout like this one!

Happy creating!

Quiet Moment | Savannah Dreams | Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news today! I am joining the Pretty Little Studio design team for 2019!
This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2019-Design-Team-Announcement_b-1-1024x1024.jpg
The Savannah Dreams collection designed by Kim Watson is so pretty! I really liked the Delightful 12 x 12 paper and decided to get 2 sheets of it! I knew that I wanted to use my square punch to punch out some of the squares from 1 sheet and then pop them up using foam tape on their corresponding square on the other sheet! I love the shadows this creates.

I decided to scrap a photo of my sister and myself from her 40th birthday a few months back. We don't get to spend much time together now as she lives in England and I am in Australia but we were very lucky to have her and her beautiful family home last October for a few weeks. I layered one of the frames from the 'Best Ever' frame pack underneath the photo as well as some of the stickers too.

I used the Home word from the 'Home' sticker sheet set to form part of my title for the page. I popped it up using foam dots, this gave it lots of dimension! I added the 'Quiet Moment' die-cut piece from the Floral Fantasy die-cut pack to form the beginning of the title, I layered this straight onto the bottom of the photo. I tucked in loads of the beautiful florals also from the Floral Fantasy die-cut pack underneath and around my photo. They look so pretty peeking out from all around.

For the 'At' in my title, I used the Poppy alphabet stickers in blue I also added some of the phrase stickers in white to help tell my story and that gorgeous heart and rainbow flair button from the Carefree pack looked so pretty placed to the left of my photo.

Artistic | Pink Paislee/Paige Evans Whimsical | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone,

Today I have a new design team layout created for Sassy Scrappers to share with you using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. I will be working with this collection over the next few weeks so stay tuned for some inspiration each Friday!

There are lots of crafty elements in the Whimsical collection and I wanted a reason to use them so I chose this frame banner cut file to showcase some small photos of some of my favourite scrapbook layouts! I cut out the cut file from white cardstock and then backed most of the spaces with the photos. I did leave 3 spots open and added the square chipboard pieces behind the remaining 3 spaces.

I absolutely love that sticker that says 'I Craft Therefore I Am' so it definitely had to make it on this layout! I layered it over the top of the pink chipboard square. I took out everything that was craft related and trialed them on the page. Some pieces made it on and others didn't! I used some of the chipboard pieces, die-cuts and stickers to embellish.  

The 'Artistic' die-cut word sums up this page perfectly since its all about crafting and art! It was the perfect title! I also added the chipboard word 'Create' and some other craft related phrases. The scissors in this collection are just adorable so they also had to make it on this page! I liked that I could a set to the top left corner and another set in the bottom right corner! 

The paint palette is super cute and I like how the Create word overlaps onto the paint palette. The button chipboard and stickers add another crafty/handmade feel to the page so some of those are scattered around.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and try out a layout like this one!

Happy creating!
