A Mini & More using Pink Paislee – Atlas

Hi all, Jackie here ready to share with you a mini album and a few layouts using the lovely Pink Paislee – Atlas Collection of my recent trip to New York.

Last month I went with 5 friends to New York, and what a holiday we had – I still can’t get over how much I loved it , so to  try and document all the memories, I decided to do a mini album using this lovely Pink Paislee – Atlas-  4×4 mini album that comes in the Pink Paislee Atlas collection and I’m sharing a few of the pages here.

Mini Album

The mini album comes with a selection of 4×4 and 2×2 page protectors and I added some  extra page protectors has I knew I had loads of photos I wanted to include, I also included some pull-out sleeves that I made from cardstock to included extra photographs.

My opening page is cut from the Pink Paislee – Atlas – 6×6 pad and included some of the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Thickers.  I also used some of the mini alphabet stickers from Webster’s Pages

I cut this block from the 6×6 pad cut apart sheet.

Throughout the album I’ve just a selection of the Websters Pages – mini alphabet stickers, which were just the right size to add titles to my photographs.

As well as using the embellishments from this collection, I had also used some of the stickers from MAMBI Cardstock Sticker Book – On Vacation

I used several of the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Instagram Cards as page fillers and added some Pink Paislee – Atlas – chipboards shapes

I decorated several luggage labels and used them to add my journalling on.

I also used a transparent sheet over a some patterned paper as a filler page, as well as adding a stamped detail to the front of the luggage label

and the back of the labels had the journalling to go with the collaged photographs.

In the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Instagram Cards –  there are several transparent sheets,  whichI used as filler pages but it allow you to see what is on the next page.

As an extra page I included a pull-out piece of yardstick  – and decorated the front with pieces from the 6×6 pad cut apart sheet.

Inside the pullout – I added 3 photographs and some journalling about one of my friends antics at the subway turnstile.

This album came together really quickly, I loved working with the smaller size, I kept the pages simple in design with minimum embellishments.  I will be sharing more photographs of this mini albums on my blog here

As well as completely this mini album, I managed to do a few layouts from the trip.

Lady Liberty

This was something I really wanted to see close up and it didn’t disappoint, its is truly magnificent and a lot larger than I’d imagined.  I decided to use a large 11 x 8 photograph and keep the page very simple, just adding a few embellishments.  I used the B-sdes of both of the papers – using Pink Paislee Atlas – Take Flight as my background and added a piece of Pink Paislee – Atlas – Compass as a photo mount.

I used some of the puffy stickers and chipboard shapes from this collection as embellishments.

I used the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Thickers, which comes with this collection as my title, they are a gilded foiled – which offers a muted silver tone to the range.

I just added a stamped phase from the Becky Higgins Project Life Roller Stamp, which has some great phases on.

Hashtag Selfie

Now I love taking a selfie – who doesn’t right – so whilst in New York I took several selfies and choose a few to add to this layout.  I used the B-side of the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Altitude as my background, using the B-side of the sheet – and underneath the photos I used a selection of the papers from Pink Paislee – Atlas – 6×6 pad.    The journalling card I cut from the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Take Flight sheet.

Whilst putting this layout together, I found on my desk these stickers from Simple Stories – Word strip stickers  and added a few around the photographs.  I also cut the “hello” from this Technique Tuesday die.  The title was cut on my Silhouette Cameo using white cardstock and I coloured it to match the background paper, and added a HLM flair badge.

Favourite Daydream

I sometime struggle with finding titles for my layouts, but this one was provided for me from a tee-shirt I purchased before I went to New York, I shorted it so it could fit on the page,  but I just love how it has turned out.  I used a mixture of my stickers and thickers from my stash, as well as using the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Thickers.

I started the title using a cut file from my silhouette cameo, and then I selected some alphabet stickers and thickers from my stash.  I added the title first, so that I know where to fit the photographs.

Underneath the photos is a selection of papers from the 6×6 pad, some of which I had die cut, but has you can see I got carried away with the amount of photographs I used and the paper ended up be completely covered, but you can see a with few edges peeping out.

I then added a few chipboard shapes  from Pink Paislee – Atlas – Chipboard Shape pack,  Pink Paislee – Atlas – puffy stickers and a few pieces from the Pink Paislee – Atlas – Ephemera Pack, and finished off with a HLM flair badge.  I also stamped a few phases around the page using the Becky Higgins Project Life Roller Stamp.

I hope you like how I’ve used this collection, and it gives you some ideas to scrap your holiday photos.

Enjoy the rest of the month, and see you  all next month.
