Throw Back Thursday – Pastafarian in the making

Hello everyone!

I don’t have anything new to show you today, and since it is Thursday, I thought I would do a #tbt and showcase a layout from my 8×8 days. I have only been scrapbooking on12x12 size since the beginning of this year but it already feels like a million years ago!

This layout is super fun and I have chosen it because (I had never posted it here before…) it shows quite well how you can make the most of 8×8 pages. It’s got two photos, tons of alphas for the long title and a journalling card! You can’t ask for more 🙂

Here it is and I hope you like it!

Scrapbook layout – Rider

Hello everyone! Today I’ve got a layout that I’ve created with a sketch from the Stick it Down blog. It’s a very interesting sketch, and the layouts that I have seen created with it are very diverse… people have really taken very different interpretations!

This is my layout:

And this is the sketch:

I had these three strips of scraps leftover from a previous project and I promised myself that I was going to use them rather than throw them away (like a few people suggested!) so here they are! I have used mainly Paige Evans Oh My Heart collection, as I still have tons left!

A couple more close ups:

Scrapbooking layout – Hello scooter

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I managed to get another layout done for the Red challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper.

I cut some hearts with my silhouette and placed them over a new piece of cardstock. I put a tiny bit of removable glue under each heart so they wouldn’t move, and then sprayed with red mist over each heart. I carefully removed the hearts and the result was quite cool!

I then stitched with black thread around the hearts and finished putting my layout together with gold hearts and other embellishments. I am so happy with the final result!! I hope you like it too!

Scrap Cafe crop – June 2017

Morning everyone!

Yesterday (yes, on a Sunday!) I attended the monthly Scrap Cafe crop in Bracknell. I had no idea that it was going to take place until Georgia messaged me asking if I was coming… after arranging things with hubby, I said yes!

I had a great time chatting about all things crafty with like minded people, I really needed that! I wasn’t the most productive though and only managed two layouts, however I am very happy with both of them! It was quite warm in the room and I wasn’t feeling great, but I was happy to just sit there and chat.

I also tried a new approach and packed very lightly compared to every other time! I only took five or six thickers packs, a third of my embellishments, and a few already made kits (lottie loves paper mainly). And I must say that it worked quite well! I think my process is changing slightly and now I am ok with just using one collections or kit (rather than going through all my stash for one layout)

And without further ado, here are yesterday’s creations!

Hello Nutella

The papers in this layout are Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Shimelle (the navy one). I love how these papers look together and I have already used them before in this layout.

Push!

This layout is 99% Cocoa Vanilla Studio “you rock” and it is a scraplift, but I am quite happy how it turned out 🙂
