Paradise Layouts and Cards

Paradise Layouts and Cards

Tricia Morris

The limitless options provided by the duplex papers in the Paradise collection make this set a joy to work with. We adore all of the colors in the kit, so we're not "taking sides!"

Let's take a closer look at the layouts that can be made with the Deluxe collection.

Paradise Deluxe Kit

LAYOUTS 1 & 2

1116cs01_02

The 8.5x11 Orange Print is a sweet tone-on-tone raised print of little pineapples. I used the entire print on this layout and alternated with the Pink side.

1116cs01_02a

We included a roll of the most adorable Washi Tape. Could it be any more perfect?

00washi

Stretch it above or below the cutapart anchoring strips to add contrast.

LAYOUTS 3 & 4

1116cs03_04

The gorgeous silver parrot charm perches on a narrow strip of Lime paper. If you have a wire cutter handy, carefully snip off the loop at the top of the charm. Glue the charm to the layout with a Needle-tipped Applicator filled with Bookbinding Glue.

1116cs03_04b

LAYOUTS 5 & 6

1116cs05_06

Adorn the Pink (or Orange) anchoring strips with two sets of three accent buttons and adhere with Bookbinding Glue.

1116cs05_06b

The buttons come in a variety of colors, so just mix them up.

LAYOUTS 7 & 8

1116cs07_08

We "got a leg up" on kit planning by purchasing this flamingo printed grosgrain ribbon. I mean, where else can you use flamingo printed grosgrain ribbon? This was our chance! Use it in a strip, or cut individual flamingos from the ribbon for a cute embellishment.

LAYOUTS 9 & 10

1116cs09_10

Here's that washi tape in use again. It really jazzes up the nested border strip on the 12x12 White paper.

1116cs09_10a

Use a 1/4" hole punch to add holes to the Blue cutapart tags and tie with green and pink ribbon.

1116cs09_10c

LAYOUTS 11 & 12

1116cs11_12

Staple two pieces of ribbon in contrasting colors to the top of the printed cutapart and balance by adding three buttons beneath the anchoring strip.

1116cs11_12a

LAYOUTS 13 & 14

1116cs13_14

The 12x12 Pink paper on the left side of the layout is a plain sheet altered with the Palm Leaf Masking Stencil and White Pigment Ink. Stencil one more palm leaf to the upper right corner of the layout.

1116cs13_14a

Aww . . . two flamingos gazing at each other.

Paradise Greetings to Go

SET A

1116g2ga

When scoring all of the Greetings to Go cards, you get to choose which color will face out. Have fun with that! Just remember, the "bump" of the score goes on the inside of the fold.

1116g2ga04a

When scoring these fun stand-up cards, place the desired outside color facing up on a Score-Pal, and add the inner score lines at 3.75 and 7.75". Then flip the card to the other side and add the outer score lines at 2.25 and 9.25. That way, the bump of the score will be on the correct side of the mountain and valley folds.

1116g2ga04

SET B

1116g2gb

We found the funkiest pink mesh ribbon for the Greetings to Go kit. Simply wrap it vertically around the card panel and finish with a pair of cutaparts and a flamingo charm.

1116g2gb01a

SET C

1116g2gc

These simple, elegant "tent" cards have two outside panels hinged together by a simple printed cutapart. The "window" created by a 1" gap between the two front panels reveals a corresponding greeting on an inner cutapart.

We have a lot more Paradise to show you! Keep an eye on the blog all month for more inspiration with this collection.
