Week 36 – A quick weekend trip to Las Vegas. This is quite possibly one of my favorite spread…ever. I love the soft tones and the muted look that the two “blur on purpose” photos add to this spread.

Trisha Harrison | Project Life week 35 .

September 4, 2014 |  by  |  project life  |  No Comments

Hi everyone, Trisha Harrison here and I am sharing week 35 of my Project Life. I am (as always) super excited about another amazing design from Liz! This week I wanted to keep things simple and let the photo’s be focused on … But I also had a lot to say this week so this card kit called “today is” tags and journaling cards were just the right fit!

IMG_4771

Here are the tags I printed out at home and punched out with my marvy punch. I love how classic these tags look and well simple, to the point I just love them!

IMG_4768

They are so versatile these tags you don’t have to use them in a whole circle, just punch and cut down to add a little to another card, very minimal and totally PERFECT.

You see how much I love working with the tags, now the journaling cards are just as great and loved that Liz designed two options!

IMG_4749

Here is an example of the journal cards not yet written on and in this shot I was still arranging the photo’s and cards.

IMG_4761

Another in progress shot here and started to tell my story of the week these little cards felt like the words on them were like little prompts to go on for the journaling.

IMG_4754

Example here with the card “Perfect” and I honestly felt like that was a great way to get out the words onto paper a little easier.

So this was a real BIG favourite for me and will be using these cards & tags again and again! You can find these cards and tags here, Thanks for reading!

picks from the press gallery | july and august edition

September 3, 2014 |  by  |  product releases + news  |  2 Comments

Hello there! Kelly here bringing you the July and August edition of the picks from the press gallery.  I don’t know about you but for us it was a whirl-wind summer and I can’t believe it’s already September! But the kids are back in school which means I have time again to peruse the paislee press gallery and instagram looking for new and inspiring projects and layouts.  I love what I am seeing and can’t wait to share them with you!

The first layout that I would like to share is Right Now by ChantalK.  She used pictures + words no. 15, On My Desk, Make Believe, and Sunny Days Ahead to create this lovely layout.    I love the clean design here but what really caught my eye was her fantastic shadowing that makes the whole layout look as though it is a paper layout. I love that!

Up next is a month in review layout by jive_kewl.  As usual I love everything about this layout from her. I really like the way she used the pops of yellow papers from the Say Yes To kit against the white background.  And I love how it all coordinates with the yellows in the photographs.

This next layout is by liahra called morning things to do and was created using In Progress.  Wonderful use of white space here and I love the clustering around the photograph.

Next I would like to share a project life spread that I found on instagram by twopartssilly.  She used Woodgrain Journaling Cards, Brightside, and Say Yes To  to create her spread.  I really love the blues throughout the spread and her photographs are really wonderful!

paislee-something-layoutbytwopartssilly

Here’s another layout that we found on instagram by meandmybutton that was created with From Where I Stand.  Seriously, where do I even start with this layout!?  I love so many things like the pops of pinks and yellows  as well as the clean and modern design. And her photographs are really adorable!   Just perfect!

Finally we have a project by pepperandtwine that I am really excited to share.  She used elements from Magic hour, Say Yes To, His and Hers,  and Sunny Days Ahead along with her cameo to create stickers for her journal and planner. I thought this was a brilliant idea and I really love how they turned out!!

That’s it for this edition and I hope you loved these picks as much as I did! And as always we would love to see what you’ve created with your paislee press products.  We encourage you to post your layouts at the paislee press gallery or to on instagram with the hashtag #paisleepress.  Thanks for looking and we’ll see you next time!

caylee grey | she said yes mini book

caylee | she said yes mini book

Hey it’s Caylee and I’m excited to share something different from what I usually share this month.

Two of my best friends were recently engaged after eleven years of dating. Now that’s deserving of a big celebration. I organised with the guy to get photos from a couple shoot they had because mini books using professional photos just elevate them to the next level. I was also full of glee when I discovered how perfectly the colours went with the About Us kit.

I printed out a few elements and a few photos on sheets of vellum.  If you’ve never done this, you’re seriously missing out. It takes things to the next level.

Vellum is the real-life Photoshop for printed photos. How soft does my friend look? Even more beautiful.

I punched two holes into the pages, and instead of using binder rings as per usual, I used some bakers twine to keep the soft look. I also used transparency sheets on the front and back to add an extra layer of protection. I love how simple mini books are, and how special they are as keepsakes.

Have a great September, and if you’re in the southern hemisphere like me, enjoy the beginnings of spring.
