Scrapbooking Layout – Beautiful

Hello again friends!

Today’s layout I also made at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading a couple of weekends ago. I wasn’t feeling 100% inspired, so I went for a direct scraplift from the super talented Bea Valint. I used pretty much the same papers and embellishments too (Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Wild at Heart collection). I very rarely copy a layout almost identically, but this one was so pretty that I couldn’t help myself!

Here is my layout, and HERE is Bea’s original one:

Scrapbooking Layout – Morning Face

Hi all!

This is a layout that I made a couple of weekends ago at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading. I was inspired by a layout I saw on Pinterest, however, I have been looking for it in order to link to it here and I can’t find it! I was just inspired by it, it’s not a straight scraplift, otherwise I would feel terrible! I always like giving credit where credit is due. I used Dear Lizzy Lovely Day papers and some embellishments from OneCanoeTwo “Hazelwood” collection.

The word “morning” was stamped, and I actually loved doing it… I have a few alphabet stamp sets and I very rarely use them! I need to get them out more 🙂

Scrapbooking Layout – We can help you paint

Hi all!

This is a layout that has been in the making for quite a while! I originally cut the hearts on my Silhouette to create the Hello Scooter layout. But I knew that I would be able to use the negative space as well, so when I was designing it, I placed the hearts carefully and also added the stitching lines outside the hearts.

Then, a couple of weekends ago, I did the stitching whilst I was at the Scrap Cafe crop in Reading (this has just reminded me that I haven’t shared the other two layouts that I created that day, so I will make a new blog post about those tomorrow).

And finally, I finished the rest of the layout on Saturday! So, yeah, a long time coming!

Here it is:

This was a fun layout to make, and I loved going through my stash to get all my yellow and green embellishments.
I hope you have liked it, and read you very soon!
