Hey there, friends! Enza here, and today I’m sharing a new layout with the beautiful Indigo & Ivy collection. Don’t you just love the contrasting colors and unique images in this collection? I just can’t stop playing with it. It’s so beautiful that you don’t need much more than a few embellishments to create a lovely page.
Once again, I went with one of my favorite techniques: fussy cutting. This time, instead of flowers, I fussy cut all the feathers from Paper 10. I’m not a big fan of green for scrapbook layouts, but the papers in this collection have that “something” that makes them extra special.
I started by trimming the cut-apart patterned paper (Paper 01) – I love tags, so I thought it would be fun to use several on my layout. I arranged the feathers to form my bottom layer, using foam adhesive to give them dimension.
I then layered the tags on top. I added patterned paper behind them so to create separation from the background and used light pink ribbon for the top.
I trimmed the photo to fit the 3×4 card included in the cut-apart paper and embellished it with more stickers and fussy cut flowers. This collection comes with lots and lots of sentiments, which I used all over the page.
I also love the Ephemera with Foiled and Glitter Accents. They are the perfect size for a title and give the page the right amount of sparkle and fun. Puffy hearts finished the page.
I hope I have given you some ideas for your next scrapbook layout. I really like how this turned out and can’t wait to play more with the lovely Indigo & Ivy collection.
Hello lovely friends! It’s Kylie back with you today and I am sharing two cards I have made with the new Again & Again collection. Have you had a chance to check out this new range yet? WOW! I am so in love with the beautiful color palette and gorgeous prints. Lots of pretty florals and distinctive patterns. The cards I created were really quite easy and fast to make, combining some of my favorite colors from the range. I also added a splash of mixed media and foiling thanks to my Foil Quill.
For both cards I have used Paper 09 as the background on my card base. I felt the dark woodgrain pattern would be a perfect contrast with my gold foiling. Using my Foil Quill with my electronic cutting machine, I added some script text to the front. Once the background paper was adhered to my card base I added a machine stitched border as well as three contrasting paper strips in varying widths, overlapping.
I fussy cut lots of flowers and leaves from Paper 02 which were added to my card layered with foam tape. I bent some of the petals and leaves for added dimension.
Once I had all the paper blooms in place I decided to add some random splatters of gold paint. This balanced the gold foiled phrase nicely.
For my second card I pretty much used the same design for the layout but instead of using fussy cut blooms I used Paige’s layered flower cut file. It’s one of my favorites! For my background I added some white and gold paint splatters.
I used my Foil Quill again for the title as well as some vellum leaves to tuck in under my floral cluster. Once my flowers were layered together I centered them with some of the gold star sequins.
I loved seeing the dimension both cards had once completed as well as all the lovely layers of color.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my cards today and you have fun with the new Again & Again collection, creating your own inspirational pieces.
The gorgeous new Again & Again collection was perfect for documenting a pretty sunrise in my Traveler’s Notebook. I love finding the beauty in the everyday and creating a special page to celebrate it.
I started by choosing my papers and, of course, the specialty vellum HAD to feature heavily here. My Pocket Page Notebook has a clear pocket in the middle of the spread so I created a double sided insert using the vellum, to hold both my title and my journalling.
I cut my title out of the cut-apart paper because I loved the sentiment and also the color worked so nicely with the vellum. I also cut out one of the smaller strips of patterned paper. Because the vellum is transparent I cut a second strip and a piece the exact same size as my title – these will cover the glue showing on the back of the insert. In the end I swapped out the second strip of patterned paper for one of the journaling spots on the same cut-apart paper.
For the left and right sides of my spread, I chose a dark woodgrain paper that would make my photo pop of the page and a subtle pink diamond paper to coordinate with the vellum insert. I used one of the sentiments from the Again & Again stamp set and created a subtle vertical column on the pink paper using a gray ink.
Again, I used the stamp set to stamp some moths in blue ink onto some of my scrap papers and then fussy cut them out. I added one to my title block and two more to the left hand side of the spread. Then I embellished with some of the enamel shapes in blue and gold and added a gold paper clip to my insert. Once I slipped the insert into the pocket, I could start working on the right hand side.
After adhering the woodgrain paper to the page, I stuck down my photo and then used a blue ink again to stamp two of the sentiments directly onto my photo. I kept this page very simple and only added a couple more enamel shapes to tie the whole spread together.
Here is a quick process video showing you how this page came together so simply:

The Again & Again collection is truly perfect for documenting all those beautiful, ordinary, oh-so-perfect everyday moments. I know that my Traveler’s Notebook is full of them and I hope yours is too!
Hello, PP friends. I have a new layout to share with you today featuring the gorgeous Indigo & Ivy collection. One of the techniques I enjoy and use often is fussy cutting. What I love about it is the ability to “rearrange” the different designs and display them in a new and unique way. The beautiful flowers on Paper 02 inspired this page:
I started by fussy cutting the whole patterned paper, as I wanted the flowers to be the main element on the layout. I then trimmed a 4.5 inch strip from Paper 12 and created a multilayer border on the right side with smaller strips of paper. I also roughed up the edges for more interest. I adhered the strip vertically on the background and disposed the flowers diagonally across the center. Foam dots are your best friends for arrangements like this, as they give you a more natural and flowy look.
Once that was ready, I created two more clusters on opposite sides of the page to balance the design.
I went with a photo that is a bit bigger than what I normally use. I felt like a smaller size would have gotten lost in between all the flowers. I layered ephemera pieces behind it and a few sentiment stickers, as well as paintbrush strokes rub-ons.
For the title, I used a sentiment that came in the Ephemera Pack. I popped it on foam dots and placed it in the lower portion of the photo. I also fussy cut butterflies from Paper 03 and arranged them around the photo as well. A few heart stickers and more sentiments finished the layout.
I love how this layout turned out. It’s feminine and soft, with that pop of blue that is just perfect. I hope you like it too and will feel inspired to create your next project with this beautiful collection.
Sending a card is such a lovely gesture, but sometimes you want to send a little bit more than a card. Especially to your crafty friends! These loaded cards made with the Horizon collection are perfect for sharing a few fun goodies while keeping your postage costs to a minimum!
To create the card base, trim a 12×12 sheet of patterned paper down to 10×10 inches. Then, fold the base in half vertically to create a 5×10 folded card. Unfold the base and use the guide above to measure, cut and remove to pieces shaded in grey. Fold the bottom flap up and glue on the left and right edges to create a pocket. Your card base is now ready for decorating.
Begin by creating a band to hold your letter in place by using some of the off cuts of your 12×12 paper. Cut a strip 6×2 inches wide. Fold over 1/2 inch from each side. Add adhesive on both flaps and glue to the inside of your card base. Add some embellishment of a small message using alpha stickers. You can tuck your letter inside and it will stop the message from falling straight out the bottom.
Create a small cluster of embellishments to the front of your pocket, remembering to keep it as flat as possible so stickers and die cuts are ideal.
Once your pocket is decorated you can pop in a few goodies such as tags, die cuts, smaller pieces of patterned paper, cut apart sheets, and washi sampler cards. Stitch around the edges of two pieces of cellophane or plastic and fill it with a custom sequin mix to add a bit of sparkle to your happy mail!
Complete the card by adding tags, patterned papers, embellishments, and a sentiment to the front of your card base. Craft foam give a small amount of dimension but will still fit in a regular envelope.
For something really special, punch a small hole through the top of the folded card and add a small charm or tassel.
Who doesn’t love getting happy mail? So why not make it a little bit special and share some of your gorgeous Horizon supplies!
Hi friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog to share a new Indigo & Ivy layout.
A few years ago, I made a layout where I made hearts using to halves of patterned paper. I wanted to make something similar again, using the beautiful new collection. So to start, I chose the patterned papers I wanted to use and added two papers from the Turn the Page collection by Paige Evans. I added those to give the layout a different kind of color scheme and have a pop of bright coral.
I traced hearts onto every paper using a self-made template, then cut the template a bit smaller and traced a second heart on every paper. I cut them all out and cut them into two halves. Then I decided how I would mix and match them, using four different patterned papers for every heart. I adhered them together with a drop of glue and then I also adhered them to some white cardstock to have a third layer behind the big heart. I cut around, leaving a border and then went through my sewing machine, adding gold stitching details to my hearts.
To give them dimension, I put foam squares behind every halves of all the hearts. I added embellishments, like stickers and ephemera in the middle of each heart.
As a background, I used one of the very light pinkish patterned papers from the collection, cut off about 1/2 inch of two sides and adhered it on a yellow/brownish patterned paper to create a frame… like I do most of the time! I then arranged all my hearts on my page and adhered them to it.
For my picture, I used one of me and my boyfriend when we were in Paris a few weeks ago. I matted it on two patterned papers and placed it on the layout, arranging it between the hearts. I added a gold tag.
As a title, I used one of the gold die cut words from the collection saying “always” and then added some Thickers to write “you”. I LOVE the combination of the gold and navy blue and the different fonts! The finishing touches were some enamel hearts, some pink splatters, and a scribbly border in navy blue.
I really hope you like the layout and are inspired to use this beautiful collection!
Hello friends! It’s Kylie with you again and today I am so excited to be sharing a layout created with the divine Indigo & Ivy collection. When I first received this collection I immediately fell in love with all the beautiful papers that feature watercolor effect, soft muted tones, as well as deep navy. There were so many ‘color way’ options I could go with but for this design I chose soft pastels with a floral accompaniment.
For my background I selected Paper 04 as it reminded me of a lovely linen fabric. I decided to add some extra texture to my background. Using a stencil I had in my stash I used some translucent modeling paste over the top of it, followed by some very faint watercolor splashes. I didn’t want the background to override my layout and was super happy with the delicate effect it gave.
Using Paper 05 I cut some folded circles using Paige’s cut file. I cut these in two sizes and distressed the edges a little with my scissors prior to adhering into place. I love that they give an illusion of a little windows of paper opening out. Almost a panel effect!
To balance and evenly distribute color on my page, I also added some distressed borders of paper to the right hand side of my layout.
I layered several different color options in paper behind my photo. All edges were distressed first to continue with the overall shabby chic theme I was creating. I’ve also tucked in frames and tags from the die cuts behind my image, which was adhered with foam tape so that it sat up from background. The watercolor flowers in the die cuts were also added with foam tape. These were perfect for framing the bottom edge of my photo.
Using both sets of alpha stickers I added in my main title. The contrast of the blue and gold together suited my theme. To finish my layout I added a small amount of gold sequins to my background page as well as some butterfly die cuts over my folded circles.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest project!
I went through the Horizon collection and chose five patterned papers from which to cut concentric sunbursts. As the papers were cutting I splashed white acrylic paint and pink watercolors onto a pink ombre paper background. Then I heavily distressed the edges of each ray and layered them together onto the pink paper background, using machine stitching to affix the papers in place and also create additional texture.
I grabbed a photo of me and my daughter and placed it in the middle to make it the center of attention. Next I pulled lots of pink and blue embellishments from Horizon and created two clusters on either side of the photo. The title is made with a pink chipboard “Adventure” sticker placed along one of the rays
I wrote journaling with a dark blue pen in the open section opposite the title to balance it out.
I hope this layout inspires you to pick and choose your favorite colors from a collection to create a layered sunburst background!
Hello, Pink Paislee friends! It’s Donna here and I am sharing my latest scrapbook layout using the Indigo & Ivy collection.
For today’s project, I chose the softer hues in the collection mixed with some navy for a bit of contrast. I started with Paper 08 as the background and splattered pink and white acrylic paints as well as some gold spray mist. Then I cut two pieces of 1-inch x 12-inches of paper strips and adhered to the right and left sides of the layout.
I used a mixture of fussy cut feathers from Paper 10 and pieces from the ephemera pack for embellishment. I used mounting tape to adhere the die cut flowers for dimension. I also curled the edges of the leaves/flowers and feathers to create another interesting detail.
I scattered sequins randomly to finish off the layout.
I have a process video for this layout. Watch it HERE or play the video below. Enjoy!
That’s all from me today and I hope you liked my take on the newest collection from Pink Paislee.
