Layouts⎪Happy NSD *Elle's Studio*

Since today is NSD, so I am trying to stay away from clean & simple layouts. I didn't have much time to make scrapbooking pages recently but after watching Wilna's video tutorial on creating lovely pages with paint strokes cut files. I was too cheapskate hrmm.. i mean lazy got pull out my Cameo to cut those paint strokes, so I just started squeezing Martha Stewart Acrylic paint onto the white card stocks and spread them rather unevenly with craft sticks.

And here was how I started. I pull out almost all the Marthe Stewart paints that I have in my stash and arrange them accordingly to create a pastel rainbow! Pastel + rainbow is soooooo me!

p.s. After I have started spreading a thick layer of paint onto the card stock, i sort of regretted. I do agreed painting on the Paint stroke cut files is way easier and the paper will not warp / buckle! Note to self: next time I shall not be too lazy to pull out my Cameo!

And here's my layout:
It is so fun to have inky fingers and once the layout is done, this instantly became one of my favourite layouts. And I am going to gift this layout to my parents because this photo of them is just too sweet!

I also tried my best to coordinate colour of the embellishments with the paint strokes. I colour those wood veneers that are from Love You More collections with acrylic paint.

For this layout, I used a lot of Cut Outs, Bits & Pieces, Wood Veneers and papers from Love You More collection which you can find in the shop.

And do remember, since today is NSD, as a scrapbooker, you should scrap and also shop till you drop!



  1. I love your lovely family card, love the soft colors used....

  2. I love your colorful page and especially how you painted the wood veneer to match! Really clever and fun! TFS!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE what you have done with the paint in the background! It seems to be trending atm and is not my MUST do list! AMAZING page!

  4. I think the colorful paint background is wonderful, and I love how you've matched the embellishments to the different shades of color. So pretty!

  5. LOVE IT!
