Hello friends! I know I am a bit late in posting this however I wanted to share with you all how The Pretty Patterned Paper Playground or P4 for short, came to be. My new friend Evi and I, who met through YouTube, recently discovered that we both live in Florida and pretty darn close too. I invited Evi to join me at a crop some friends were hosting. We immediately hit it off. We had an awesome time and even did a little scrappy shopping together after the crop at a nearby Tuesday Morning.
We discussed the option of scrapping to together and thought it would make for a fun You Tube series.
We met up shortly after that for a nice lunch date at Perricone’s here in Downtown Miami. We discussed the details and that is where The Pretty Patterned Paper Playground was born.
We decided we would post twice a month, once scrapbooking together and once separate. Each month we will follow a mood board Evi & I put together and we will also have a challenge. Here is our first ever mood board for the month of March 2016
When we scrap together we will set a timer for 15 minutes and try our best to complete our layout in that time. We will also create our own Pretty Patterned Paper. Using Mixed Media and various techniques. The top two photos below are the layouts we created when we scrapped together. The one on the left is Evi’s and the one on the right is mine. As a fun twist we decided to scrap the same photo(notice it’s the photo from our lunch date.) You can find the process video of Evi and I scrapping together here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NtJeRGPvFc
For our second video where we scrap separately we will always have a different challenge. For the month of March we decided to scraplift the very talented Missy Whidden. Evi and I are huge fans. The two photos above with the vertical circle clusters are our interpretations of Missy’s beautiful layout. The one on the left is Evi’s and on the right is mine. We deviated a bit from our mood board but I think we both did a great job of recreating Missy’s idea. We thought it would be fun to post our videos on each others channels.

We started a Facebook Group, also called Pretty Patterned Paper Playground. We created it so that we could share the layouts we create and hopefully inspire our crafty friends to play along with our challenges or to simply create. Our group is a fun, interactive place for crafty friends to gather and share our work with each other. No need to follow our mood board or our challenge, we just want to see what you are creating and want to be inspired by you. I hope you will join us on YouTube as well as on Facebook so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun.
Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty
