Glamper – Paige Evans + Silhouette

I LOVE this little Glamper (Design ID #271162) by Paige Taylor Evans! I knew I wanted to make the glamper super cute and sweet so I started digging through my stash and found the colors I envisioned in Oh My Heart and Turn the Page by Paige Evans.  Once I had the glamper cut, I then cut some clouds using the Cloud Trio (Design ID #216711) cut file, for the solid clouds I simply ungrouped the cloud files and deleted the inside cut lines.

I got busy and started backing the glamper with papers from Oh My Heart; I used a black paper from C’est La Vie at the bottom of the camper. For the pennant, I used the 2×2 squares from the 12×12 paper from Oh My Heart.  I wasn’t sure what all I would use for embellishments on the layout at this point so I thought a multi-colored banner would work with anything!  I took awhile to decide whether I wanted the body of the glamper to be all black or not and in the end, I liked it lightened up on the top half!

I added some pink and white scalloped paper from Oh My Heart to the bottom of the layout to serve as the “ground” for the glamper to sit on.  I also added a single scallop to the top of the layout for a nice frame! I decorated inside the windows with the paper ledge paper from the Oh My Heart 6×6 paper pad and added stickers and puffy stickers for dimension!

I layered up a field of flowers on each side of the glamper; I used printables of Paige’s collections so I would have lots of flowers and who doesn’t take their kitty glamping?   The kitty is slowly being chased by the snail!  I love that the little puffy stickers add just the right amount of detail and cuteness!

Butterflies, white clouds, and stars fill the top part of the page and make a home for my photo! The stars and butterflies are from Turn the Page; the colors go with Oh My Heart so well!

For my title, I used the Adventure gold rub on and carefully placed it onto a cloud.  I spent some time tucking little butterflies and more puffy stickers into spots for added detail!  I love how the layout turned out!

Flamingo Envy

Paige offered a super cute Flamingo Pool Floatie cut file for free in her Happy Scrappy Group and I just had to use it!  The group is free to join and has loads of inspiration for using Paige Evans cut files and collections!

 

I had to make my flamingo pink and went straight for Oh My Heart!  I backed the flamingo in two of the pink papers and left the middle ring open for my journal card since I do not have a flamingo floatie!  I added lots of pink flowers and attached the sunglasses to my journal card to make it easy to pull it in and out.

I didn’t want the flamingo to be stranded so I painted her a pool and some splashes!!  It was so fun to make this page!

 

Good Life – Paige Evans + Silhouette

Lately I have had Oh My Heart on my mind!  It is still one of my favourite collections by Paige and Pink Paislee!  I got out my stash and set to work backing the Geometric Background (246550) with all the pretty patterned papers in Oh My Heart.  The Geometric background is really lovely to back, it is all straight lines and it makes a big impact when finished!

Once I started on the cluster of flowers around my photo, I realized that the flowers and cards were blending in with the background too much, I added a simple piece of vellum to the background to soften the brightness.  I had been playing around with some Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze through Paige’s Flower Bunch (259829) cut file and had the gold covered cut file left over so I added it in between the background and photo cluster.
I love how bright and cheerful the layout is, the florals in Oh My Heart make me happy every time!

Mama Bear

I was excited to see the Geometric Bear (Design ID #230010) in Paige’s shop!  I love bears (from a distance) and I also cut some ed Leaves (Design ID #227130) and Labels Set of 3 (Design ID #216960) for my page!  My original plan was to cover up all the journaling but my daughter said she would like to be able to read it in years to come so I decided to make a pocket that looks like a file folder to tuck in the journaling tags and photo.
 I used Oh My Heart Paper 07 for a nice contrast in the background and the rest of the page is made with Turn the Page!  I had typed all my journaling and done paint puddles and splattering for a background so instead I turned them into tags!
 The Turn the Page alpha is so perfect with the Geometric Bear!  I love it!

My Pumpkin

Today is the last day of “Halloween Week”. I hope you have enjoyed the layouts!  I sure had fun making and sharing them!

For this layout I cut a bunch of of the Pumpkin Trio Design ID #222474 cut files.  I used a mix of Oh My Heart by Paige Taylor Evans & Pink Paislee and the Crate Paper After Dark Digital Collection.  I thought it would be fun to make a spooky clothesline with lots of banners and tags, socks are halloweenish right?  I added some glue spots  and sprinkled rose gold glitter for the top of the background and added some green/yellow paint as well!

Spooky details….

Boo Crew

My third layout is titled Boo Crew.  For the base of the design I used Squares Background Design ID #216774 I cut the design down to only have 3 columns.  Since I chose very bright and contrasting colors from Oh My Heart by Paige Taylor Evans & Pink Paislee the grid helps everything feel less chaotic!  I added one of the Haunted Houses Design ID #217953 for a cute focal point. It was a challenge to use a collection that wasn’t really meant for Halloween, once I got going it was interesting to find so many things that seemed perfect!

Every year for the last 4 years we go to our friends house for pizza and trick or treating.  They live out in a country subdivision and everyone knows everyone there so the kids can just run around and have a great time!  Love our Boo Crew!

Scrapbook Expo

I am very thrilled to be featured on the Scrapbook Expo blog today!  As part of the feature you get the opportunity to create an exclusive layout!  I found a favorite autumn photo and used Oh My Heart by Paige Taylor Evans & Pink Paislee to make a pretty autumn page!  I cut leaves with a cut file from the Silhouette store and then punched little flowers with a Martha Stewart punch to use as sprinkles all around the layout!  I designed the title in photoshop and cut it with the silhouette.  I would LOVE for you to check out the post at Scrapbook Expo and see the layouts I chose as my favorites!!

Books and More Books

Books are a serious thing at our house!  I have always been a reader and Hannah is a voracious reader!  She learned to read early and has never stopped!  Very early on, I gave up buying books and instead we make great use of libraries!  I think being a home school kid, she has always had more time to read which is a great thing!  When I first got Oh My Heart I knew one day I would go crazy with the books and book paper.  I fussy cut like a mad woman this week, cutting all the books and also the 6×6 sheet of flowers.  I tinkered around with a few different layouts with the books and then settled on a pennant arrangement.  It seemed to show them off the best without overtaking the whole page!  I chose one of my many library photos for the layout!  I have the digital version of Oh My Heart as well so I used one of the open books from the paper and typed on it in Photoshop for a little journal spot!  I had a few of the Books and More Books cards from the multiple paks of Die Cuts I have gone through, so I thought using both of them added to the visual story of how much she reads!  Thank you Paige Evans for making such a wonderful Oh My Heart collection!!

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!

Love You Bunches Layout

I made this layout earlier in the week, the week went by so fast I thought I better get it posted!!  I used some Sizzix dies and cut 6×6 Oh My Heart by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee papers into flowers and leaves. After building the flowers I added a bit of watercolor paint to them for shading.  I used the leftover cutout words from my Love Your Laugh layout and stitched around them in two shades of blue thread.  I cut the r off of the your and it worked out fine! I used my sewing machine to stitch stems for the flowers and popped a favorite photo into the flower bunch!  I also used a fab cut file from The Cut Shoppe underneath 3 of the flowers for added dimension and texture.  I scattered the left over holes from the flower cuts and punched some more circles with a hole punch.  Added a pretty polka dot bow and done!
