Pink Paislee Paige Evans Bloom Street - Favourite Moment

Hello, Karen C here today with another scrapbook layout using Pink Paislee's Bloom Street collection by Paige Evans. The colours in this collection are so pretty and could be used for so many themes.

The starting point for my layout today was a sketch from Pagemaps from January 2019. The sketch was for an 8.5 x 11 size layout but I adapted this to make a 12 x 12 layout.

I used a sheet of 12 x 12 textured white Avalanche cardstock from Bazzill for my base and on this I layered several patterned papers. A 6.5 x 7.5 piece of the stripey #16 paper from Bloom Street  was stuck to the layout and below this a 6.5 x 3.5 piece of the yellow floral #14 paper. A scrap of ledger paper from my stash (I think this is from the Simple Stories Sn@p Basics collection) measuring roughly 4 x 5.25 was layered on the left side. I used a notebook border punch on the lower edge of the ledger paper to add some interest and also printed my journalling onto the paper using my computer before it was attached.

I used another border punch on a strip of the pink  #09 paper and stuck this horizontally across the layout to create a shelf for my photo to sit on. Finally a thin strip of the #16 paper was added. I machine stitched along all the edges and round the edge of the white cardstock with white thread and roughed up the edges.

The 4 x 6 photo of my daughter was matted onto white cardstock and then stuck to the layout.

I die cut a circle from white cardstock and a slightly larger scalloped circle from yellow cardstock and layered these to create an embellishment and to give somewhere for my title and embelishments to sit.

A wood veneer butterfly from my stash was stuck to the edge of the circle and the word 'Favorite' (Shame about the american spelling 😕) from a sheet of Pink Paisleee Bloom Street Flutter Puffy Phrase Thickers and the word 'moment' from Pink Paislee Whimsical Happy Life Foam Thickers were used to make the title.

I embellished with some Dear Lizzy Delightful Chipboard Thickers, some Prima Surfboard Flowers and a phrase cut from paper #13.

I made a tab to tuck in the side of the photo by using a label die and another one of the phrases from the #13 paper

The layout was completed with a scattering of yellow sequins and the date was added using some foam numbers.

Thanks for popping by today. I hope you like this layout and I'll be back soon with another.

Take Care,
Karen x x
