Each month we nominates a paper project for “The Project of the Year” in TPC Magazine. At the end of the year, we will have nominated twelve monthly projects, one of which will be elected, by TPC’s readers, as “Paper Project of the Year 2023”. Today we have the pleasure of presenting the nominated project in March.
The nominated paper project in March is a beautiful layout made by Misty in USA. The reason for choosing Misty’s project is:
I love it because of the bright, beautiful colors. Also, I’ve followed Misty for awhile now andshe absolutely stuns me with her layouts and embellishment arrangements. Just look at those vellum flowers! Her pages are something I aspire to.
Description of the project?
This is a 12×12 scrapbook layout showing off the great big personalities of my Great Niece and Nephew.
How is the project created?
I used some old Jillibean Soup, some new 49 & Market, and a retro style cutfile to tie it all together. Paint splatters, vibrant enamel beads, and fun ephemera add the perfect final touches of detail.
Size of the project?
What kind of materials are used?
Scrapbook paper from Jillibean Soup and 49&Market Vellum from Cut Cardstock And the Daisy Frame cutfile from Peartree Cutfiles Lace ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
How long did it take to create the project?
About 1.5 hours. Backing the cutfiles took most of that time.
What inspired you to create this?
I have been paying tribute to some of my favorite companies that are no longer around in what I call my “Flaskback Favorites.” I love the new stuff, don’t get me wrong…but I REALLY loved and miss some of the Oldies but Goodies, too! I pulled out some older lines from companies that I wanted to pay tribute to. I have several from “back in the day”…Authentique and Little Yellow Bicycle, Nikki Sivils, Rusty Pickle, October Afternoon…etc. This Jillibean Soup line was begging to be my next layout, however, calling my name with the bright and vibrant colors! In true “flashback” fashion, I paired it with the gorgeous Daisy Frame cutfile from Peartree to create the retro vibe. I mean, what is more retro than giant daisy!?
If you want to vote for the Paper Project of the Month – March as “Paper Project of the Year 2023”, you will have the opportunity to do so from December 31st. 2023 to January 31st. 2024. On 7 February 2024, we will reveal which of the twelve paper projects received the most votes and therefore is “The Project of the Year 2023”.
