Focus on Pink Paislee Moonstruck


Hey everyone, Jill back with another 12×12 layout featuring the Pink Paislee Moonstruck line.  I used products from the Main Kit, Main Add-on and Life Pages kits to create this page.

I found my inspiration for this page from the package of washi strips; I used all of the strips on this page, adhering them in a row on the bottom left and top right of the floral paper.  I wanted the pops of color against the pink floral to highlight my photo area and the other embellishment area on my page.




I used repeating 2×2 inch photos layered on top of the Pink Paislee ephemera pieces, creating a few layers behind the pictures.  I added in some of that gorgeous gold vellum paper as another layer in this area. 

The title is a mix of Thickers and puffy alpha stickers.  I stitched right through the chipboard word and then added messy stitching below the alphas.  Additional stitching along the edges of the washi strips ties in the gold accents.



A few butterfly die cuts and a puffy sticker add more sweetness to this page.

To finish my layout I added a mini clip from my stash and a few more stitches through the ephemera butterflies and the chipboard flag above the photos.  I blurred the baby buns in the photos but you can tell this layout is all about the cheeks 😉

Thanks for stopping by the Gossamer Blue blog today!

Layout with Decorated Journaling Cards


Hello and welcome to the Gossamer Blue blog today. It’s me, Sandra  and I’m sharing a layout idea with the beautiful December kits and handmade, decorated journaling cards.

They are effortless to create and make for a nice eye-catcher on your memory keeping projects. All you need is white cardstock and different embellishments to go with the journaling cards. You will find lots of different beautiful embellishments in the December kits.



 I cut out three 3×4 journaling cards from white cardstock and decorated them with rub-ons, ephemera, different stickers and alphas (from Pink Paislee and American Crafts).

I used foam pads to attach the top butterfly to give the journaling card more dimension. The flower and ornament rub-ons are really handy to add beautiful accents to your journaling cards. 




 I hope you like my inspiration today. Have fun creating!

Big photo, Little Inserts


Hey friends, wouldn’t you agree that there is something special and just so fun about little 2×2 squares?


I love being able to cut up different colors and patterns and just top each one off with embellishments to make simple cards!


I had this enlarged photo and thought it would be fun to pair it with little squares! No one says you only have to use the traditional card and photo sizes!


I added the title to the empty space of the photo so it didn’t take away from it but I wanted to pull some color out!


The finished layout has all things fall and lovely – big and small – light and dark!




I sure hope you are inspired to use different sizes in your next layout!
