UK Scrap Addicts Design Team – Just two hours old

Good morning!

Today I am in the Midlands taking part in another fantastic Birds of a Feather workshop with Paige Evans. I honestly can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous layouts that we are going to be creating today!

However, before I can show you any of that, I have to showcase my very first layout as a UK Scrap Addicts Design Team member!

Lottie Loves Paper Guest Designer Layout – You can do amazing things

Good morning!

Today I bring you my second layout as Guest Designer for Lottie Loves Paper.

Did I already say how much I love the kit this month? The Pinkfresh Studio embellishments are so cool! I must admit that when I first saw them I wasn’t totally sold on them. At a first glance I didn’t think those shades of blue, green and pink went together. But as the days passed, the more I looked at them the more I liked them! And now that I have actually put them on a layout, I actually love them!

Everything in this layout except for the twine and the little splatters came from the kit. Isn’t that amazing? And I still have plenty left over!

You can do amazing things

Because of the “Fibonacci inspired” hand stitching was so raised, I had to pop up all my embellishments on the page. I actually went for the biggest foam pads that I have, as I really wanted them to be lifted off the page. The puffy stickers that I used are also quite raised, so overall I think it worked quite well.

Lottie Loves Paper Guest Designer Layout – Literally 39

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you my first ever layout as a Guest Designer for Lottie Loves Paper.

lottie loves paper

Lottie Loves Paper is a British scrapbooking shop that offers monthly embellishment kits with add ons. The fact that the main kit is embellishments is a very big advantage for a lot of us scrapbookers who seem to have too much paper but never enough embellishments! I have been subscribing since they started offering kits last year.

I am so chuffed to have been chosen as a Guest Designer for the month of February. It is an honour! And the kit this month is so gorgeous that it makes it even better. It features items from current collections like Dream on by Pinkfresh Studio, Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy and a bit of Pink Paislee too.

This is my first layout for the kit, I hope you like it:

Literally #39.

It was my 39th birthday yesterday! And what a better way to celebrate than creating a scrapbook page! This layout will be going in the Book of Me.

All the items in this page are from the kit, except from the black and white thread in the tags, the date stamp and the ink splatters are from my stash.

Throw Back Thursday – Places I’ve called Home

Hello! For today’s Throw Back Thursday I bring you a layout that I made last month. I have only recently finished doing the stitching though! This is my first double layout on 12×12 ever! And I am so happy with how it’s turned out!

I am still using up the remaining bits and pieces from the Take Me Away kit that I got at the Paige Evans workshop. I remember thinking that the price of the workshop was quite high, but I’ve had so many bits leftover that it’s been totally worth it!

This double layout is for my Book of Me scrapbook and it is all about the places where I have lived and that I have got to call “home”. The paper with the map of Europe was just perfect and the moment I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The paper with the houses was also perfect to fill up the background on the other page. I added a tiny bit of watercolour underneath the photos, but only a tiny bit to give it a bit of interest but without taking focus off the images.
