Scrapbooking memes

Hi all!

I was looking for a very specific photo the other day for an admin post over at For the Love of Pretty Paper when I came across scrapbooking memes. Tons of them. How had I missed them until now?

Just for fun, these are some of my favourite ones;

I hope you have laughed at them as much as I did! The shoes one is soooo true! I own like 3 or 4 pairs of shoes that I use regularly, when most women have more than double that! Pretty paper though….. I never have enough!

Scrapbooking Layout – Somos familia

Hello lovely friends!

Today I bring you my second layout that I created for the “T is for Tags” challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper.

For this layout I used my Silhouette Cameo to design and cut part of the title, that says Familia (family in Spanish). It was very easy to create from scratch and it can be done with very basic knowledge of the software!

Here is my layout:

In addition to the tags for the title, I also put some journalling on a tag and hid it behind one of the squares of pattern paper.

Scrapbooking layout – Run wild and free

Morning everyone! Yesterday we started a new mini challenge over at For the Love of Pretty Paper, and this week the letter we have gone for is T, and T is for Tags! Until Friday next week, we are encouraging people to use tags in their layouts.

And here is my first layout!

Run wild and free | crafts by marialachica | scrapbook layout using Felicity Jane "London" collection

 

I have used the Felicity Jane “London” collection which I bought second hand recently. I also used it yesterday on another layout that I can’t show you just yet, so I have formed myseld an opinion on the products! And my first impression is this: the papers are super good quality, very pretty and I love the colours. Not 100% happy about the fact that there are so many solid papers and not enough patterns, but I can live with that. The sticker sheet is very pretty, but not happy about the fact that I had to fussy cut all the elements myself, and also, once you remove the backing paper of the sticker sheet, the sticker itself is a bit flimsy. I removed the backing paper on a couple of the stickers, and for the rest I have just added glue and used them not as stickers.
The embellishments are nice, but there aren’t enough in the packet. The alphas I absolutely love, so very happy with those.

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!
