Brave Wings

Recently we colored my daughter’s hair with temporary bright color!  She had been wanting to do it for a long time and the only thing in the way was me!  Of course if it was going to happen then there needed to be loads of pictures, this photo was my favorite and the Take Me Away collection by Paige Evans & Pink Paislee was such a perfect match to show it off!  The brave wings pocket card said it all for me and that was my jumping off point for the layout.  I punched butterflies from the 12×12 papers and spread them out in an ombre effect from the bottom.  A few gold accents and Take Me Away paper clip finished it off!

Love Everything

While I had my Felicity Jane kit out making Hello Life I made another layout using the gorgeous chipboard alpha from the May 2016 kit! Recently I started a Terrific Titles Pin Board full of title inspiration!  I kept the background super simple with just a few Heidi Swapp Gold Colorshine sprinkles and used Crate Paper Chasing Dreams to embellish the page!  I love this photo and this girl and this page!

Turn the Page Guest

Today is the day!!  I am thrilled to share my pages using Paige Evan’s new collection Turn the Page!  Paige and Pink Paislee have done it again with an outstanding collection of beautiful scrapbook products!

The very first page I made was “That’s What She Said”  I stitched pink heart sequins around my circle made from floral paper, the sparkle they add is just right!  I fussy cut the quotes from Paper 21 to use as the inspiration for the whole layout.  The title is a nod to The Office, one of my favorite shows!

The next layout I made is called “Fresh Start”  I let the quote determine the color story for this page, with the fresh green and blue!  I added Shimmerz Well Blue Me Down & Rolling In The Hay to the background.  I layered leaves cut from white cardstock, and cut from the deep green paper from Turn the Page.  I went through the embellishments and puffy stickers to find the ones with greens and blues!  I fussy cut the swallow and butterflies from the 12×12 papers.  To finish it off I added the sweet little tab from the sticker book!

For my 3rd layout I was ready to dig into the papers!!  There are 24 papers in Turn the Page with their coordinating b-sides which gives you 48 patterns to play with!!  I chose the big beautiful floral and then coordinated the other papers based from it.  I cut simple long banners and roughed up the edges a bit for a shabby look.  I added some of the pretty ribbon as banners as well.  I used a gorgeous big quote embellishment and more butterflies fussy cut from Paper 04.


For my last layout I used the Follow Your Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe as my jumping off point.  It is such a great way to use many papers by backing the open spots of a cut file!  I mixed and matched papers trying to have different colors and patterns next to each other!  There was a lot of cutting and fitting but I adore the result!  I used a quote fussy cut from Paper 21 (can you tell I love the quotes?) and made a cluster on the lower right and then a mini cluster on the top left for balance.  The sweet little banner is from the sticker sheet and the flowers are fussy cut from Paper 15.

Last but not least I made a mini album!  My daughter had gone to a sleepover and my husband was busy doing tractor type things so I had plenty of time to scrap!  I cut down the cover from an old novel (bought at a library sale) and readied it to hold my little booklets.  I made 3 signatures with about 5-6 pages in each signature.  I did all my sewing and sticking and decorating before I added the signatures to the cover, it makes it much easier!  I kept the pages fairly simple but cute!  I added a repeating theme with little typed sentiment strips!  I love how it turned out!  Every time I turn a page I will remember this exciting opportunity I had!!

The cover for this next signature was inspired by Steffi Ried’s cool stitching!!

 

 

Hello Life

I took some inspiration from Jill Sprott’s Stash Busting Challenge and though I haven’t made a stash kit (yet) I thought I would dive into some kits I bought ages ago and use them!  For this layout I used my May 2016 Felicity Jane kit!  I used a rose stencil on the background and started with black paint then added white for the next rose and more white paint for the 3rd rose, a few splatters and I called it done!  I layered up my photo and added bits and pieces from the kit.  The beautiful word tab was made from the stamp set! Felicity Jane kits are so pretty!
