New Level of Happy Mail

Weeks ago I received an email inviting me to be a Guest Designer for Paige Evans & Pink Paislee!!  #mindblown really suits the surprise and giddiness I felt!  Of course I said yes!  Fast forward to me annoying the lady that receives courier shipments for me in town.. is it there yet?  now?  today?  Thank goodness she is super nice and didn’t mind!  Finally she called me that the box had arrived so Hannah and I went off to town to get it.

The “Turn the Page” Collection is amazing!!  Truthfully I had to sit and look at it for a day before I could go near it with a pair of scissors 🙂  The possibilities were filling up my head and I didn’t want to use #all the things on the first page!

Once I started scrapping the pages almost made themselves!  I am excited to share them soon and honored to have been asked to be a guest designer!  A big Thank You to Paige Taylor Evans for the opportunity!!

 

Happy 3rd Birthday Layout

This layout came about from the Hip Kit Club Moodboard Challenge on the FB Forum.  I was inspired by the balloon picture on the moodboard and the colors from Oh My Heart by Paige Evans & Pink Paislee are perfect!!  At the party we had a strawberry shortcake birthday banner hanging on the wall and I thought it would be cute to add to the layout.  I made the banner in photoshop and then traced it in silhouette to cut out!  The photo is one of my favorites, not a typical birthday fun photo, she was waiting for cake and tired out by this point.  I just love it!  The today is awesome, xo gold heart and mint bow chipboard are from the Take Me Away Collection and I added a few flowers from my stash!

Hannah “willingly” gave me the 3 from her My Mind’s Eye On Trend Ephemera pak.


I colorized the photo in photoshop beofre printing, the background was super busy and I wanted just the birthday girl to be the focal point!

Hustle & Heart Layout

When I saw the bright blue embellishments and papers in the June Hip Kit I immediately thought of our dance photos this year!  Hannah definitely leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes, especially at dance competition time!  I used the Amy Tangerine chipboard and punch stars out of the HKC papers.  The pink sequins on the pink stars are leftover sequins from one of the costumes I made!  I added some paint from the Prima Tropicals paint palette for some extra pop!

Stitching Layout

My daughter took up stitching in June of this year.  Gram came to visit in July and caught the stitching bug from Hannah!  They stitched up a storm during the visit!  Awhile ago I talked Hannah into stitching a title for me for a layout.  I ended up painting in the bottom of the title so it would “pop” more!  I used the gorgeous chipboard and die cuts from Take Me Away by Paige Evans & Pink Paislee.

I had trouble for the longest time figuring out how to put it all together.  Finally I got the idea to hang the stitching bits from the title with embroidery thread!  I topped it off with a coral suede bow, also from Take Me Away!
