Scrapbooking Layout – Life’s a beach

Hello everyone!

I hope you are enjoying this fantastic National Scrapbooking Day (aka = weekend!!) I have started early with a superb challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper. The challenge is to scrapbook about Spring or Summer, and I just happened to have the best embellishments ever from my latest Lottie Loves Paper kit! I have used the May Stuck? Sketches! sketch so I will be entering my layout there too 🙂

And here it is!

Life's a beach

5 May 1 2017 - Stuck Sketches (600x600)

I painted the background with a bit of white acrylic paint to soften it a bit, and I actually love how it’s turned out. I also added some white and yellow splatters. The papers are from a very old Echo Park Paper collection called Spash. And the embellishments are from my Lottie Loves Paper kit, which is super fun and summery!

I hope you have liked it, and thanks for popping over!

YouTube video for NSD – Fun Summer Days

Hello everyone and welcome to National Scrapbooking Day!

I really hope you are enjoying all the challenges so far on For the Love of Pretty Paper! For this challenge, I am creating a layout for you to scraplift. A winner from all the entries will be chosen and be given a prize!

So for my layout today I have used the Endless Summer collection exclusively. If you follow me regularly, you will know that it is rare for me to just use one collection and not go through all my stash! But I wanted it to keep it really simple with this layout!

Here are a couple of photos and my YouTube process video! Please come over and say hello!

I really hope you will play along and choose my layout to scraplift! Happy scrapping!

Scrapbook Layout – My boy’s a dreamer

Hello lovelies!

Today I bring you my third and last layout that I created at the Scrap Cafe crop on Saturday. It is all about my dreamy boy!

I am afraid that I did not pay much attention to the materials that I used, so I won’t be able to give you a comprehensive list of items used. However, I do know that the background sheet is from Shimelle’s first collection (which I bought off Lisa Jane at the crop!) and the journalling sticker is from the Cool Kid collection. The rest of the elements are from my stash and I can’t remember the names, sorry!

Here is the main photo:

And a couple more close ups:

Anyway, I hope you have liked this layout!

See you very very soon on one of the many National Scrapbooking Day challenges that I will participating in!

Silhouette UK blog – Geometric background tutorial

Hello Silhouette friends!

I am over on the Silhouette UK blog today with a step by step tutorial on how to create geometric backgrounds from scratch! And I would say it is easy enough for beginners to try too!

If you saw the layout I made the other day called “Motherly Love”, you can see I used a geometric background. I shared it on Facebook and I got a few complements on the cut file, so that inspired me to create this tutorial as I know a few people would like to make their own one, and it’s not that complicated… they just need to be shown!

Anyway, please pop over the Silhouette UK Blog and have a look!

And here’s a closer look to the card that I created specially for this tutorial. I used Paige Evans “Take me away” 6×6 papers. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set.
