When did you start scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking when I was 16 years old and got my very first job at a local scrapbooking store. The first time I put pictures with paper & stickers I was hooked! As they say, the rest is history!
What is something most people would not know about you? I know Morse Code - I learned it in high school for my senior project.
What are the 3 scrapbooking products you can’t live without? Silhouette Cameo, patterned paper, sewing machine
What do you love about the November, Sunshine on My Mind, kit/s? I love that these kits include lots of my new collection with Pink Paislee called Whimsical :)
Finish this sentence “If you could see my scrapbooking space now . . . It's half a mess, half organized. I'm working on lots of projects at the moment so it's a bit chaotic, but I know where everything is so that's a plus!
WHIMSICAL by Paige Evans
Hey everyone! So excited to share my first layout created with the Sunshine on My Mind kits!
I started with the rainbow striped paper and used a border punch on every color to make scalloped strips. I lightly adhered the strips across the B-side of the aqua sailboats paper and then machine stitched across the top of each strip. To add lots of texture I bent up the edges of all the scalloped paper strips.
Next I grabbed two photos of my daughter and overlapped them in the middle. I layered frames from the Whimsical ephemera die cuts underneath and added a chipboard "whimsical" sticker at the bottom of one for the title.
Then I had fun picking and choosing embellishments to go across the entire background, placing them color-on-color. So pink clouds over the pink paper strip, blue clouds over the blue paper strips, etc. I love the texture this technique creates!
I just now realized as I was typing this that I forgot to add journaling, but it will go across the very top and bottom edges of the layout :)
I hope that you are inspired to check out the November Sunshine on My Mind Citrus Twist kits! They are full of color and things to get your creative mojo going! See you again soon!
