The Paige Kits by Pink Paislee....a layout share

Hey everyone, I'm here with you today sharing a layout I created using the awesome Paige Kits from the Fancy Free collection.

I love that within these kits you get a die cut template, a coordinating patterned paper which replicates that die cut, various ephemera, a title, and even adhesive foam strips. Basically, all you need to create an eye catching layout.

I decided I wanted to adapt this kit to suit my own style so to do this I used my favourite American Crafts heavy weight white textured cardstock to use as my background. I still wanted to use the awesome geometric heart print so I cut around the outline and then adhered it with the foam tape provided to the die cut geometric heart.
I matted my photo on a stunning peach/pink dot paper in the collection. I chose to document a wedding photo for this layout and picked a black and white photo as it gives me the creative option to add any colour palette I like. Plus I love to scrapbook with black and white photos. I also added a doily to add that touch of softness to the page.
When I embellished this page I embellished it in a diagonal direction to even the weight of the busy heart. I used a combination of ephemera from the Paige Kit, acetate and cardstock ephemera, chipboard, buttons, and puffy stickers. Yep, I did go a little layer and embellishment crazy here!

To the top left of the photo I created a small embellishment cluster. It includes the beautiful acetate heart from the ephemera and a silver foil heart. Also a cute button and chipboard cross. I just love how many different embellishments are available to create with in the Fancy Free collection.

To the right of my photo I have layered a couple of the beautiful tags from the ephemera pack. To finish off these tags I simply tied bows to the top using white crochet thread. On top of that I layered a few different ephemera pieces to add a bit of detail. How beautiful are the floral icons in this collection? The “best ever” banner and “wonderful day” puffy sticker finish that small cluster.

I continued embellishing in a diagonal direction to the right of the page to balance the cluster to the left of the photo. I adhered the pieces with a liquid adhesive and the watercolor printed heart was added to the page with a staple. I included a button, chipboard cross, heart and a cardstock “favourite” word banner. To finish this page I added the date using an American Crafts roller date stamp and some silver splatters.
