The first of two Dinosaur Scrapbook Pages

Hello and RAWR to you today, friends! It’s my turn to share a page on “Paige’s blog”: and today I’m scrapbooking with Bloom Street’s pastel colours and some dinosaurs. What could be a better way to spend the day? Pretty sure RAWR is dinosaur for ‘stay home and scrapbook’ and I’m on board.

I’ve had the Geometric Dinosaur cut file bookmarked in my mind for a while, but someone recently asked which papers I would use specifically from Bloom Street to bring this dino to life, so it had to be done! And it appears the answer is all the greens and purples, plus a cheeky pair of chipmunks.

You can watch it all from start to finish in this process video.

Thanks so much for braving this fearsome T-Rex and I wish you much pastel fun in your own creating this week!

A Dreamy Scrapbook Page with Paige Evans papers and cut file

Hey howdy hey friends! It’s my turn on Paige Evans’ blog and I’m excited to share with you a new layout using plenty of purple from Bloom Street along with this fab Star Wreath cut file and a photo from Disneyland!

The top I’m wearing in this photo has a space ranger badge on the front and says ‘to infinity and beyond!’ on the back, so I knew from the start I wanted to pair it with purple and green to play up the Buzz Lightyear memories, plus plenty of stars seem apt for a space ranger in Tomorrowland. I couldn’t decide between a star background or a star wreath, so put it to a vote on social media and the star wreath was the winner! I started the whole process by cutting that at the full page size from white cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo. You can watch the whole process from start to finish in this process video.

Thanks so much for taking a look, and please do let me know if you make something with purple, green, and stars any time soon.

My first page with Paige Evans' Bloom Street collection

One of my favourite things to come out of the start of 2020 is the chance to work in a new way with an old friend: as part of the cut file design team from none other than Paige Evans. Today I’m sharing the first page I’ve made as part of that team with her Love Love Love cut file and her beautiful new Bloom Street collection.

Here’s a look at how it all came together, with one photo taken just outside It’s a Small World at Disneyland Paris, and one patterned paper per word of the cut file. Plus a little thread to finish it all!

I cut my files like this with the Silhouette Cameo 3 and smooth white cardstock, then adhere with the same adhesive I use for almost everything: the Kokuyo dot roller.
