Hi guys! Apologies for the lack of updates lately, although I can tell you that there are a few layouts coming in the next few days that have been scheduled for design team work.
On top of that, I am off to the Scrap Cafe retreat this evening, so I am planning on getting many many layouts done! Wish me luck! I am a bit annoyed that I didn’t get to book a room to stay over so I will be coming back home every evening, but it’s hardly the end of the world. I just couldn’t afford to book the hotel when the reduced price was offered, and when I could finally afford it, the price had gone up more than double!
I have already packed and I’m taking everything plus the kitchen sink. It’s all in the boot of my car and I will be going to the hotel straight from work. I think I’ll be getting there approximately around 6:30, which will give me time to unpack, eat my dinner and get one layout before heading home!
I will show you my layouts when I’m back!
Have a great weekend and read you soon!
For today’s layout I wanted to use scraps and that is absolutely what I’ve done! Not a single full piece of paper was cut to create this layout!
The four stripes of paper surrounding the turquoise cardstock are the only leftovers, proper scraps!!, from the layout I made the other day for the Silhouette UK blog. The turquoise cardstock and background stripey paper are also scraps! For the embellishments, I took a half-used pack of “snip-its” by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, form the Colour Me Happy collection.
I hope you have liked this layout and thanks for visiting!

Today’s layout is a “just because” layout. All the pages I’ve made recently were for a specific challenge, so it was nice to create just because for once! I played with several ideas in my head, but in the end I settled with this layout, which was loosely inspired by this lovely page by Pol Prince.
And here it is!
Apologies for the rubbish coloration on the photo. The natural light let me down! I have taken another photo but I am not sure if this one is any better! The colours are truer to the original, but the image isn’t sharp!
And a couple of close ups:

Today layout I made for the Mercy Tiara 27 Day Scrapbook Challenge on Facebook. The challenge was to use the following:
- Autumn related layout
- 4 pattern papers
- Use a stamp
- Multiple photos
- Include journalling on the page
- Use die cuts
In addition to the required elements, I also included three extra items from Moira’s tic tac toe challenge, which were
- Add journalling on a tag
- Use thread or twine
- Make it leafy!
And here is my layout!
It may not seem like it, but there really are four pattern papers in there! Two in the main vertical line, and two more mounting the photo 🙂 A couple more close ups:

Today’s layout is inspired by the first fortnightly sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. When I first saw it I said “this is perfect to use my 5kg box of scraps” and I did! I used my box of scraps! I’ve only made a little dent on it, it is still 4.999 kgs 😀
Because the photo I was scrapping was of a rainbow, I knew I had to make a rainbow of pattern papers 🙂 Here it is:
And here is the sketch!
As you can see in the sketch, under the strips of pattern paper, there are some splatters of mixed media. I wanted to keep my background quite white, so I sprayed with my White Heidi Shine and the result is quite subtle, but I love the shimmery effect. I am not sure how well it can be appreciated in the photo. I also used a bit with Tinsel Heidi Shine and a few black watercolour splatters. I should have waited until the ink sprays were dry before adding the watercolour splatters, as they run a bit…
For the embellishments, I used “Life is Beautiful” by Fancy Pants, and some buttons and sequins from my stash.
