Never a Crabby Day

Hey scrappy people, Lisa Fonseca back on the blog to share a cute and summery layout with you.

It’s really easy not to feel „crabby“… Just pull out your @pinkpaislee @paigetaylorevans #pickmeup collection and create some cute paper-pieced crabs with funny faces and scrap one your favorite vacation pictures. Your day will not feel that „crabby“ anymore says @lisafonseca1985.

I often find inspiration for my layouts on Pinterest. When I saw an artwork with a bunch of cute little crabs on it, I really wanted to make a page with paper-pieced crabs. To start I chose four patterned papers from Paige’s Pick-Me-Up collection, drew some wonky circles, claws and little feet on them, cut them out, and created my crabs. I adhered them on white paper, stitched around the pieces with matching thread, and cut them out again, leaving a white border.

As a background paper, I chose one from the Summer Lights collection. I placed my crabs on the paper in a kind of grid design and adhered them on the page using sticky foam to make them pop out and create dimension.

Then I cut out a bunch of pink and gold flowers from a floral paper from Oh My Heart. I scattered them on my page, placing a lot of them around the crabs.

For every crab, I also used one or two little pieces that I thought would really match and complete the design. I used chipboard, cardstock and ephemera pieces from Summer Lights and Pick-Me-Up.

I wanted to put some scalloped strips on the top and bottom of the page. At first I wanted to use my scallop punch but when I went through the patterned papers from Pick-Me-Up I saw that paper with the ombre hearts. I thought that if I’d cut the bottom off those hearts I would create a cool colorful scalloped strip. So I picked two rows of hearts where the colors matched and I used them on the top and bottom of the layout. Then I stitched around the page with dark pink thread.

I used a picture from my last vacation in Italy. I matted it on some scraps of patterned paper and placed it on the page, in between all of the crabs.

As a title, I used Thickers from Pick-Me-Up. To finish the page, I splattered some white and gold paint on the page.
