Parisian Anthology #1

This month's Scrappinista Scrapbook Club kit is one of the new lines from Pink Paislee and House of 3: Parisian Anthology.

The printed papers come in neutral colors with printing and an embossed layer. If you ink up the papers, paint, spray with mist or whatever, you can wipe off the color from the embossing, and reveal the pattern that is embossed. This allows you to custom color your projects!

In addition to the papers, the line has corrugated chip pieces that have shapes like birds, tables, branches, banners, flowers, eiffel towers, dressforms and butterflies. The line also has ribbon, flair, bling, fabric flowers, tickets, stamps and artisan elements (rubbery sticky backed embellishments that can be colored or left in their natural off-white color).

On this layout I took a single sheet of the printed paper and cut it into strips so that I could make it look like I had two sheets for this two pager. A taupe colored cardstock sheet takes up the rest of the space with some strips of off-white cardstock that are border punched to fill in the space. I inked up the printed papers with Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress inks to reveal the embossing pattern.  On the left is a doily I got at the dollar store. I cut out letters on my cricut and used them as masks with Licorice Maya Mist.  I embellished with the Parisian Anthology chip birds and flowers, the Flair and cut up and inked one of the Artisan Element borders to highlight a few of the pictures. A few spiral 3D roses added as well.

Love this line from Pink Paislee!!! If this kind of stuff might be your style, you definitely need to get your hands on it! And if you are local and not in the Scrappinista Club, you need to join! The kit is awesome and you'll learn great techniques with it!

Thanks for stopping by!
