Keep on Growing with Splendid for Paige Evans

Hi friends ! It’s really nice of you to come by. I’m back in our garden, painting it in pretty mauve, yellow and pink with Paige Taylor Evans‘ gorgeous Splendid collection.

I cut three of Paige’s ‘Paintbrush’ cut file #351594, and backed them with pretty foil papers from the Splendid 6 x 8 Paper Pad .  My entire layout was built on a white scalloped background I made using Paige’s Scalloped Border cut file #253003 . I share how-to make it in Keep on Growing – Cameo Tutorial today.

After stitching, my scalloped background was popped up with foam tape on Splendid Paper 17. I really love the vibrant print and it’s all the right colours! 

The paper-backing used for the brush bristles was cut from watercolour paper so I could add some wet ink to mimic paint. Once dry, I rubbed a glue stick randomly on them and burnished them with gold Minc Foil. Then I glued on lots of sequins, in a nonsensical way. I wanted them to look really random.

Below the paintbrushes, I added stitching, my photos, some Splendid Sequins and some more from my stash.  To finish off the painterly swipes, teeny-tiny flowers, made with Paige Evans cut files, were added in the same colours. Use these links to find each cut file: mauve flowers , yellow flowers, pink flowers. You can click on the images below to enlarge them. Did you notice the Enamel Hearts on the brushes? 

My title, ‘Keep On Growing’ was made with a combination of Splendid Thickers and an Epoxy Sticker.  Finally, bright green leaves perfectly compliment the title, while butterflies float around too. I sprinkle baby powder on the back of stickers so I can move them easily around my layout while designing and so I can add shape to them if I wish. Like turning up the butterfly wings into flight.

I’m loving the Splendid Roller Stamp! I like to use multiple colours on it to echo the rainbow theme too.

Oh, I also chain stitched a lime green frame with DMC floss, adding a bead every five stitches. You can watch it all come together in my process video below.

    1. ((( Alys ))) You are dear xo, thanks a million sweet friend. Hey?! Any scrapping happening in your craft room? I just never get tired of trying to use paper in a new way. A cut file always makes a great jumping off point !! Thanks for thinking of me too. Life sure can throw out a good curveball. Just when you’re sure you can’t take it, you enjoy a little but significant moment. 💗💗💗


  1. Hi Kelly

    I’ve tried going into your blog post a few times and on different days but yet getting an error “oops, couldn’t find the page”. I also tried copying and pasting the url into my browser and it goes to your post from 30 May Juice Bee You.

    Just to let you know that is happening.

    Cheers x
