Pink Paislee Summer Lights | Hello Weekend | Guest DT Gwen Wruck

Hi Creative Friends,

It's Gwen back on the blog today with another share as this months Guest Designer.  This month I'm creating with the latest collection from Pink Paislee - Summer Lights and today I'm sharing my third page.  If you missed the first or second one, you can check them out here.

For this page, I really wanted to pull out the stunning turquoise and yellow in this collection, I was really inspired by the No 10 pattern paper which I have used as my background.

I had this sweet action shot of Miss 10 and my hubby at the beach and went about creating a little beach scene starting with a sun shape which I have cut using my Silhouette and a piece of 6x6 paper from the paper pad.

For the bottom part of the page, I wanted to create some waves, I didn't really having any cut files that would work, but then had an idea to use a border punch. There are a few in store here, and many would give you a similar effect.  I simply punched out a stack and trimmed them very thinly and layered on my page and then stitched down.  I chose different shades of the turquoise paper to simulate the waves.

Once I had the Sun and the waves in position, it was time to add my photo. I've mounted it with a scrap from my previous pages and a bright yellow sheet from the 6x6 paper pad.

It was then time to add my title, I went with a chipboard piece that says "The ocean is calling" and two more thicker stickers "Hello Weekend".  The Thicker pack is full of text that you could use as a simple and quick title to a page and they are really great value.  The page was now really coming together and just needed some finishing touches.  I chose a cute little camera, some glasses and star fish as well as some foil elements which are so fun!  I also added some clouds to the top of the page which have been fussy cut from one of the papers in the 6x6 paper pad.  I really love how this has come together.

Thanks for checking out the blog today, I've had an absolute blast creating these pages for you as part of the Guest DT and I hope you will check out the collection in store and get creating with your Summer filled photos.

You can find the entire range in the Sassy Scrappers store here.

'Oh Happy Day' ~ A layout by Kylie

Hello, it's Kylie back this week with another project using 'Carousel' by Maggie Holmes. I have created another layout this week, featuring lots of the puffy stickers. There are a lot of great word stickers on these sheets which really add to your projects.
Here is a look at my completed layout-

I really liked this background paper 'Prize' with its trio of triangles and colour ways.

I've layered some elements into the top left corner of my page, and added a small banner flag I created using a simple punch from my stash.Here you can see one of the puffy stickers I have used, 'Fun'.

We NEED to take a moment to talk about the bow vellum from this collection.Isn't it gorgeous?? Plus, I feel silly to say but I didn't realise those cute bows are actually velvet until I got it out of the plastic packet.It has such a lovely feel to it!

Here you can see how I have included the vellum in behind my photo cluster.I have also used a strip of the perforated ticket, specialty paper too as well as more of the puffy word stickers.

This chipboard camera was a favourite to use as well! So many lovely elements in this range.

I hope you have enjoyed my layout this week.All supplies used are listed below and you will find them in store HERE.

Until next time,
Kylie xo

Pocket Pages with Agnus | Simple Stories Say Cheese | 6x8" inserts

Hello again :) I have more pages to share from my project life album using the fun 'Say Cheese III' collection along with some lovely gold foiled items from the store. 

I have created a couple of fun 6x8" inserts this week to document our annual trip to the forest to collect mushrooms as part of our May memories. My earlier pages have already showed you that these products are great for more than Disney themed pages alone and how well the colours and elements work with everyday photos too. 

I often use inserts to record special outings to help distinguish these occasions from the rest of my full sized pages, and because I liked the way the 6x8" insert worked in my previous post I decided to try two of them to give me plenty of room for our photos. 


I repeated the same format that I used for my earlier May pages and again utilized the acetate words and chipboard frames to create a consistent flow between the inserts and the full sized pages. 

I decided to stack the inserts vertically in my album and really like the way that each flip reveals more photos.

While I normally like to print the 3x4" photos at full size, forest lighting is never good and as a result I was left with a lot of different colour casts when I printed off the photos. To combat this problem I trimmed down the photos and mounted each one onto patterned paper which helps distract the eye from the various tints because of the background colours of the paper.

Roadtrip | Cool Kid | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout created using the super awesome 'Cool Kid' collection by Crate Paper! This super cool collection is currently in the Sassy store if you find inspiration from my layout and wish to purchase it!

This collection is not only great for all your boy themed pages, it can be used for travel or outdoor pages too. My family and I had a recent holiday overseas and we captured lots of Roadtrip moments including this one of my youngest son falling asleep on his Pop after a big day out! I just had to document this and what better way with the bright colours of the Cool Kid collection

I wrote some journaling on that tag and then popped it behind my photo, I love doing this and will quite often hide my journaling as I feel it can take away from the design sometimes. I knew I wanted to use the clear ephemera road map piece but it got a bit lost against the blue background so I adhered it to white cardstock and I like how that looks much better!

My title is cut using my Silhouette Cameo and I cut it from a lime green cardstock that matches perfectly with my Mum's cardigan in the photo. I really like the mix of fonts in the title.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy blog today!
Make sure to check out the Sassy store for all your crafting needs!

Happy creating!
