Youtube video – Layout look back

Hello lovely likers!

I am about to put all my completed projects into page protectors and albums, so I thought it would be a good idea to film one of those flip throughs or lookbacks or whatever they are called. Unfortunately when I started doing the video voiceover, my throat was really sore and I kept coughing. I hope people are not too putt off by this!

Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it!

Read you soon,

Getting ready for National Scrapbooking Day!

Hello lovely likers!

It just occurred to me that you may not see much happening in here in the next couple of weeks as I get ready for NSD.

What is NSD, I hear you ask? It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Funny it’s called “National”, because it certainly is not just national, but INTERnational! The day started in the US and hence why it’s called National, however this “holiday” has been adopted by many other countries in the world! It will be happening on the weekend of 5th-7th of May.

I am taking place in two separate events (although they are both connected!). The first one is for For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. The event starts on Friday evening and finished on Sunday mid afternoon. In these two days there will be lots of challenges, prizes, games and chat. I am taking part in 5 challenges! Since I am hosting, I get to know the challenges in advance and prepare for them.

The second event is for UK Scrap Addicts. This event only takes place on Saturday, but there will also be lots of videos, challenges, prizes and blog posts. I am taking part in five of the challenges, so that means that I am very busy at the moment!

Hopefully you will be able to join us either on Facebook, on the UKSA blog and on YouTube that weekend!

Scrapbook Layout – Just Like Dad

Hello! Today I am super excited to announce that I am guest designing for Stick It Down!

Here’s my layout:

Just like dad

And this is the sketch that it is based on:

SID April sketch

For this layout I used Project Life cards that I trimmed and cut. I have tons of Project Life cards but I am never going to do PL however the cards are super handy to use on layouts. You can use them for backing photos, or trim them and use the sentiments as I have done here.

Here are a couple more close ups:

I want to thank Ashley from Stick it Down for giving me this amazing opportunity to guest design. I have loved working with this sketch and I look forward to playing along with more sketches on the blog!

I hope you have liked this layout, and read you soon!

Scrapbooking Process – Exeter

Hello lovely likers! It’s the Easter holidays! Have you got anything interesting planned? And more importantly, will you be doing any scrapbooking?

Today I bring you another process video, and this time I have been a brave big girl and done a voice over! I hate my voice (like everyone else does, I suppose) but I decided it was time to face my fears.

The layout is about a mini break that my husband and I took in Exeter last week. I think this is the fastest “camera to layout” page I’ve ever done. We came back on Wednesday and by Friday I had already printed the photos! That’s a first!! The page was inspired by one of the UK Scrap Addicts designers and her page with hand stitching. Here’s her layout that inspired me.

Anyway, here’s a photo of the page and for more details, please see the video below!

Thanks for watching and read you soon!
