Product Focus: Pink Paislee | Audrey, Bea, Jessica

How’s everyone doing? Are you enjoying your lovely September kits just as much as we are? Today the three of us will share how we used Pink Paislee’s Paper Number 2 from the Oh My Heart Collection – along with the gorgeous puffy stickers. Here we go, Audrey is up first!

Hi everyone!  When I started this product focus, I had already used a big chunk of my Pink Paislee Paper #2, so I had to be creative with a few scraps!  I was inspired by the fence layout in my photo, so I decided to use rectangular strips on the background in kind of cascading arrangement with the tallest strips behind my photo.  I also threw in some strips of a few of the solid colors from the striped paper in the kit as well.

The puffy stickers were a great layering piece with a few of the die cuts and chipboard pieces from the Sept 2017 Main Kit and Embellishment Kit.  The tiny puffy sticker flowers are just the right little bit to help draw your eye across the page.

I like having different scales of the shapes, too.  The larger, die cut flowers with the smaller and medium size puffy sticker flowers add to the interest and detail.

And the glittery blue phrase stickers were the perfect contrast against the florals and also helped complete a visual triangle of bright blue elements.

Now let’s see what Jessica and Bea did with these products!

Hello friends! I am so in love with paper number 2 – I think it’s one of my all-time favorite papers and I need a hundred more. Even though I feel like the story is told at some point with a specific design, I don’t think I could ever get sick of this paper. So here’s what I created for today:

You can’t go wrong with wreaths and flowers, so this layout was pretty much done the moment I saw the paper. You can cut out the flowers even though they’re not seperate, all you have to do is get a little creative with the edges and lines and decide for yourself where they should stop.

This is what I’m talking about: The flowers are often overlapping, so that’s making it hard to fussy cut at first sight – but only at first sight, I promise! You can’t really mess up the flowers cutting your own shape!

I also used an old set of Echo Park dies to frame my picture with the beautiful Shimelle paper –  that way I could bring in some more blue from the photo, that way it looks like the colors are radiating outside. I also added the tiny alphabet stickers onto the banner to change the banner’s title and add my own – I LOVE a cute, tiny alphabet!

Shimelle’s foam thicker was just the right color for my title – and it brought in that extra that I felt was missing before I added it. The scripty font is complementing the curvy design of the overall layout, so no matter what, scripty fonts probably always work!

Hi everyone! It’s BEA here with a new layout I created featuring the Pink Paislee – Paige Evans – Turn the Page – Paper 2 beautiful floral patterned paper and lovely Turn the page puffy stickers included in the September 2017 kits.

I started my layout with choosing the Pink Paislee – Paper 7 as my background, and drew a big heart with pencil to the paper. I cross-stitched around the left side of the heart with pink thread.

I just adore the gorgeous watercolor flowers in the Pink Paislee Paper2, they are just bagging for being fussy cut out! I fussy cut a bunch of them and layered the flowers with some ephemera pieces to the right side of the heart. Love how the colors pop out from the grey background, just beautiful!

Arranged my photo to the center line, and added my journaling to a piece of ephemera. I also created a cluster to the left bottom of the page using Pink Paislee card stock stickers, puffy stickers, and a cute Amy Tangerine bow. Dropped white acrylic paint around the layout to finish.
