Did you have a wonderful Christmas? I sure did!
I enjoyed lots of time at home, crafted, cooked a bit and visited with dear friends. One celebration, a lunch with all my girlfriends from old Urban Scrapbook was a favourite events of the season
So, when I brought home Pink Paislee’s ‘Turn The Page’ by Paige Evans, I knew it would be the perfect collection to document a new beginning!
I really wanted to make use of the 2×2 paper pads I bought with his collection.
These tiny papers pack a big punch and replicate the full size collection. One of the pads is just phrases, like ‘Trust the Magic of Beginnings’ and ‘I Believe in Good Things Coming”. Both fit so well as I look forward to new creative adventures.
If you’d like to try this cut-file yourself, it’s on the Silhouette Studio, just search Paige Evans. I think, one of the trickiest things about being a new Cameo user, is knowing the right blade setting. So I’m including what worked for me here. I used 65 lb white cardstock (Reflections brand). The cut-file is pretty detailed, so I set the automatic blade at 3, Speed 3, Thickness 31. It might depend on the age of your blade too. Do a test cut!
Once cut, I laid some of the quotes on top of the cut-file and the patterned paper under the cut-file.
Our gathering felt like a big group hug!
Notice the sequins ?! I picked up this lovely trick from Missy Whidden 😀 I love watching all her videos, I call her the Picaso of Paper ! Ha! This was the video that inpired me:
I think Designers that share their projects and inspire others is what this craft thing is all about! So collect ideas as you go and pass them on.
Sharing is caring !
Happy New Year, here’s to new beginnings
