Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue

































{Reported by Paula Gilarde}

















One of the first things that caught my eye at CHA this summer was this cool new line from Pink Paislee - Vintage Vogue.  I was drawn to the pretty colors in this unique color combination -- it's nice to see purple popping into scrapbooking. This line is actually from Collage Press Studios for Pink Paislee  - so all you Collage Press fans are in for a treat!



What I liked:
- I mentioned the color scheme already. It's fun and flirty but it's not too girly (even if it does have pink!)
- I love how subtle the patterns are -- the scale is small, and because they are double-sided there's always another option if one side doesn't appeal. I liked them all.
- I loved, LOVED, loved the ephemera pack -- it's so much for to pick through all the different bits and pieces and incorporate them into a layout. This is one of my favorite trends of late!

What I didn't like:
- I wish there was an alpha. Curiously enough though, I didn't even end up using an alpha in what I made -- I used different items from the ephemera pack for my titles!

What I made:

First, I made a layout using the patterned papers, chipboard embellishments and items from the ephemera pack. You'll be seeing them again. And again!

I created my background using the emphera pack - I liked how it worked with my post-it note that I wanted to scrap! BTW, the post-it note was a recent find, something my then-boyfriend, now husband wrote for me when we were dating :)

Finally, I made a card using some patterned paper and embellishments from the ephemera pack -- it's jam-packed with fun goodies!

I really like the colors! They are for sure a little different, but I think they would be fun to work with on cards and projects!:)

Not only can I see myself using it, I have it #1 on my wish list. I can just see doing a BOM with it, something I have been wanting to do for a while now. I love how you used it, very inspiring.

This is a cute line, and I love most everything from Pink Paislee, but this line does not peak my fancy. I love the designs that you made though. Very, very cute!

I don't know that I would normally choose this color palette, but the way you've used the embellishments really makes the collection more appealing!

Perfect to scrap with a pic of my mom at her 1958 prom -wearing a knee length, strapless, pink taffeta dress!
