A Little Fun with Some Pink Paislee!

Hey all! There are many things that I absolutely love about Punky Sprouts. The albums are SO much fun and they inspire me to get out of my little 12x12 box with every project. But the design team perks are even better! Now, of course, the first one is the fact that they keep me scrapping (there have been a few times where I've thought I may never scrap again), but I L-O-V-E the product swaps! This month, we were once again completely spoiled by getting to use new lines from Pink Paislee! Check out what I created...

For my mini, I chose to start with the brand new Soul Sprout album and matched it with the Prairie Hill line.
I absolutely adore the colors in this line! There's something about the richness of the orange, blue and browns.  Here on the cover, I also used some Punky embellishments. The new parchment blossoms are SO much fun. I took this one and punched it in my scallop punch (I think die-cuts are supposed to work much better, so I'll be sure to try that next time). They take spray mists incredibly well too. This one in sprayed in Lindy's Red Hot Poker Orange. I also used a Punky canvas stem as an accent. I will also be able to use stamps on this for a title.

Many of the Punky albums come with their own tags to use as accents or pages, so how perfect was it that the Prairie Hill line also has tags in the embellishments. A little ink and some Punky lil' Twiney added a perfect touch.

 This little page is probably my favorite in the Soul Sprout. Such a little page (maybe 3 or 4 inches) but it's just so stinking cute!


I really liked leaving much of the chipboard exposed in this album. It just goes so well with the colors of the Prairie Hill.




Here's a close-up of the exposed corrugated cardboard. LOVE doing this! So much awesome texture with such little work. Just score a line with a craft knife, then gently pull off the top layer. You can make it as clean or rough as you choose.This also takes ink very well.


This fun little flower is a combination of a Lil' Lacey Bloom and a Punky canvas stem. Topped with a bit of Prairie Hill chipboard embellie makes it a perfect flower.


This page is a do-it-yourself pocket. Just trim the pocket to fit, then adhere on the edges only. This little tag is the one  that comes with the album. I added just a hint of paper so it can be used for journaling.

The Punky canvas is also the perfect medium for taking mists, inks and paints. I just spritzed this one a bit to give it a bit of color.


I free-handed these little banner pieces. Easy tip--cut out a square, then snip straight up the middle to the desired length of the "tails". Lastly, snip from the corners up to the end of the line you previously cut. 

This page will be perfect for a final journal spot! The grid paper is the perfect final page for it :). I simply added another chipboard embellie for a great whimsical feel to an otherwise, rather clean album.
 Be sure to check out both the Punky Sprouts and Pink Paislee blogs for more inspiration from incredibly talented designers. You might even find a giveaway or two along the way!

Thanks for taking a peek!
